Like many other Maldivian resorts, Lily Beach has the perfect climate, crystal-clear waters, soft white sand, excellent food and drink, and top-notch service. What sets it apart is the excellent kids club which takes children from the age of three upwards, and the superb house reef, suitable for both snorkelling and diving. Most kids clubs start from age 4 or... More

We visited Lily Beach for a second time in February 2014, and found it to be just as perfect as the first visit. From stepping off the seaplane it felt more like coming home than arriving in a holiday resort. The staff seemed to remember everything we liked last year (or if they didn’t remember they were really good at... More

We stayed here for a week of our honeymoon. Everything about this island is wonderful, we had a lagoon villa, which was perfect. The mini bar was restocked 2x daily and the room was spotless and cleaned thoroughly every day. The only (minor) thing i didnt particularly like was the toilet being outside, only because when i had to go... More

Having visited this lovely island a year ago, we were really looking forward to another week here and were not disappointed. Many of the staff that we met last year were still working there so it was almost like coming home. Our transfer from another island was extremely smooth without the need to go back through the main airport arrivals... More

Spent the last 7 days of our holiday back at Lily for the forth time. All the lovely staff were so pleased to see us and could not do enough for us, we were spoilt rotten. Our beach villa, 116, was very comfortable but the old problem of lack of enough light still applies. I took the shade off my... More

We've just returned from our 3rd trip to Lily Beach and once again had a wonderful and relaxing holiday. There have been a couple of slight changes to the hotel but all for the better. There is now a new menu at Tamarind which my wife loved. Me personally, I love a hot curry and so I just ask the... More

Just returned from a week at Lily Beach, staying in a Family Beach Villa (essentially 2 beach villas together with a connecting door). Pros: Great set up for kids, gentle sloping beaches with protective lagoons, kids pools, kids club, small play area (not great equipment,but better then nothing), fun walking on sand around the resort with the children. Having an... More

Lily Beach was truly out of this world. I was expecting to be good however it far exceeded my expectations. 7 days isn't to long in fact its not long enough. Yes its expensive but worth every penny. Can't wait to one day win the lottery and go back.
