Dear Marc and Staff. Really did have a great holiday but.... On arrival, after a long flight and tired it would have been good to have been taken to room first and only later have the full sales pitch re extras etc. Please. In this day and age, consider having no smoking areas in the outdoor dining areas in the... More

After spending hours and hours researching where to take my wife after we got married, we decided on Lily Beach and can honestly say that other than saying "yes" the day before, this was the second best decision i have ever made. From the welcome to the final goodbye, the staff were incredible friendly and helpful. We spent the first... More

My husband and I had our honeymoon here. We were both mesmerised upon arrival; the Maldives really is breathtaking and this island was beautiful. The food was absolutely excellent. We stayed in one of the water villas and it was magnificent, waking every morning to the ocean and being able to go down the stairs straight into the sea. The... More

This is a superb resort. Well worth the price, it will give relaxation, great food, excellent service throughout, but above all peace and quiet. The beach villas are preferable to the water villa, even though they are half the price. The Aqua restaurant in the evenings is a very special delight. Try this and you will want to return to...

Lily Beach is a beautiful hotel and resort in a beautiful location. But the service falls short. After some research, I found it is considered "5 Star" only by Maldivian *infrastructure* hotel standards, because of the pools available in the water villas. But it is definitely not a "5 Star" hotel from a total experience perspective. While we enjoyed our... More

This island is absolutely heaven. I have been once 'romantically' with my husband and another time with my 3 teenage children & their grandparents, and both times the resort has exceeded all expectations of all members of the the party, whether in their teens, in their 70's or somewhere in-between. Rooms are lovely, food is incredible, staff are friendly and... More

Most of the reviews are 5 star and highly praise this resort, which I feel is a fair reflection. From our experience we were surprised about the few negative comments. Someone mentioned lots of noisy seaplanes, we did not find this to be the case. It was quite nice seeing the few a day taking off and landing. The seaplane... More

I do not generally leave reviews so this is a first ! I feel compelled to add my voice to those who rate Lily Beach so highly. We chose to return again , despite extensive research into the alternatives we wanted all inclusive, modern simple rooms, an outside bathroom, excellent diving a reef to die for and nowhere could match...
