Mirihi Island is a special place of pristine, quiet beauty that replenishes the body and soul. No TV but free Internet is available for news junkies. Below our balcony in the over water villas was a coral reef where we stepped down some stairs to snorkel in (at high tide) and saw schools of colorful fish, stingray, and even a... More

Our first time in the Maldives, but this ticked all the boxes for us: Away from Male (30 mins) seaplane transfer, Small (36 villas, max 72 guests), Quiet (no young children, babies, or large groups when we were there), White powdery/floury sand, Great food (different themed buffet every night, including Maldivian and Barbecue nights, two live cooking stations, plus an...

OK, I admit, I went to Mirihi with very high expectations, due to the weeks that went into planning my special Maldivian holiday in which I had read nothing but glowing reviews of this island on the internet - its wonderful staff, its amazing reef with its marvellous colourful fish, its sophisticated food, etc. etc. I had been unable to...

We travelled about 25 mins from Male Airport to Mirihi Island Resort by seaplane. Mirihi is a luxury hotel where you don't have to wear shoes during your stay as the island was covered by white sand everywhere you go. We stayed at Water Villa, very nice view, spacious bathroom and comfortable bed. As for the food, there're different buffet... More

It was a long flight to get there but it was worth every second of it. The flight from Male by seaplane was spectacular with great views. As soon as we arrived on Mirihi we felt at home by the warm welcome. Our watervilla was spacious and well furnished. The only thing that could be better was the mattress. For... More

Mirihi was the experience of a lifetime and I must admit now weeks gone past I dream about being there every night and can't wait to return. The most amazing place my wife and I have ever been. Extremely professional and courteous staff starting with Niki and Ali, and yet very laid back and friendly. Even though they were at... More

I booked a last minute trip to the Maldives (last minute as in the Tuesday before I arrived on a Friday). As a diver I was attracted to the South Ari Atoll for potential Manta Ray and Whale Shark sightings. I was using TA to look for hotels in this area and narrowed it down to a couple. At this... More

Mirihi is not the sort of place that one would go alone. But that happened to me when sudden airport closure and flight cancellations due to bad weather stopped my companion from joining me in mid December 2013. I was naturally stressed up as we tried all ways to bring him to Male and we failed. However the attention, care... More

When we decided to go to Mirihi, we declared it was a once in a lifetime trip, so we would make the most of it. After being on the Island for all of 20 minutes, we declared from here on it would be an annual trek. It seems a little surreal for the first few hours, the whole experience of... More
