The resort is committed to a comprehensive environmental program promoting local heritage, education and general community support.

Lily Beach blends natural materials and Maldivian architecture - creating modern luxury and contemporary style. The 125 villas and suites are split between beach or over-water options. Beach Villas and Beach Suites with Pool both afford direct beach access, while Deluxe Water Villas have glass floors over the crystal clear lagoon. The Beach Villas are perfect for families as they can become inter-connecting. If you are seeking ultimate luxury, the Beach Residence is a secluded, spacious home away from home. Directly on the beach, the master bedroom features state of the art amenities with an ensuite bathroom and outdoor shower, while the second bedroom combines with a small lounge and private pool area.

Dining at Lily Beach is a delicious affair at the resort's four restaurants. Lily Maa, with its traditional sand floor, offers daily theme nights; Tamarind serves a la carte Indian, Thai and Chinese flavours; Teppanyaki excels in show cooking; while Les Turquoise d'Aqua offers gourmet 5-course tasting menus.

For younger guests, the Turtle Kids Club, with its friendly and well-trained staff, recognises that happy children means happy parents. An array of activities are provided, from crab races to crafts and water sports to treasure hunts, and there's a superbly equipped indoor area that also provides ample shade when temperatures soar.

There are many excellent dive spots around Lily Beach Resort including the chance to dive with whale sharks (in season from late August to April), while the island's spectacular house reef, home to rare turtles, manta rays and an array of colourful fish, also awaits exploration. The Tamara Spa offers holistic treatments inspired by different cultures and techniques; set over the lagoon, light sea breezes drift through the treatment rooms and glass floors guarantee dreamlike views of the underwater world of the Indian Ocean. Guests can explore surrounding islands on carefully selected excursions, such as a traditional Dhoni or visiting a local island to get a deeper insight into Maldivian culture. There is also the possibility to kayak through the lagoon and, if the wind is right, enjoy superb windsurfing, catamaran sailing or wakeboarding.

Beautiful! Just like the pictures. When I imagine a beach paradise, this is what I imagined! The over the water villa was sensational.

Review of Lily Beach Resort & Spa

Mrs JD

Lily beach was amazing. We stayed in a beach villa which had direct access to the beach. It was very modern and clean and got cleaned 3x per day. The aircon was extremely efficient. The outside bathroom was very nice and modern. We filled up the Jacuzzi bath once but was way too hot to sit in it in the Maldivian heat! Nice though!…
