2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Mirihi Island Resort is located on a secluded tropical island in the South Ari Atoll, approximately 85 kilometres south of the capital Male'. A picturesque and breathtaking 30 minute seaplane ride from Male will bring you here. This emerald gem is just 350 meters long and 50 meters wide with a sparkling palm-fringed beach of fine white sand as soft as powder, inviting you to leave your shoes behind for the duration of your stay. Only a few meters from the beach, the house reef awaits you with a great variety of marine life.

Thank you dear Mirihi Team! The twelve days spent with you will remain for my husband and I as one of our very best holidays ever. The Maldives offer numerous resorts with a high level of service, beautiful white sand beaches, colourful reefs, exquisite cuisine ... However, Mirihi is unique because you have managed to create much more than a luxurious hotel. At Mirihi, we really felt at home, we felt surrounded by friends , we felt part of the Mirihi family made of returning guests and dedicated team members who have been working at Mirihi for some of them for more than 15 years . Amazing daily snorkelling in the house reef where the in-house marine biologist Susan grows coral in a nursery, impeccable diving school team offering spectacular dives with Manta Rays, outstanding thai and balinese massages, too good cuisine, spectacular wine list and rhum selection, name it, you have it all Mirihi! Last but not the least, as we were interested to understand how one could provide all the amenities on such a small island, namely where the water and electricity were coming from, we had the chance to discover the organisation backstage. The very accessible and wellcoming General Manager dedicated time to show us and explain how the generator and the desalination system work. Impressive! We will be back. In the meantime, take care!

Hotel's Favorite
Mirihi is our 9th Maldive Island experience and our best yet. Its the complete package of perfectness from a beautiful eco Island, the service (second to none!), the food (ohhhhh that food) and most importantly, the Mirihi Team. The island was recommended to us by a colleague who has been back multiple times. "Who does that?" we said but were curious enough to try it. All I can say is, its an amazing experience. Just try it for yourself, you will not regret it. It can be whatever you want, intimate, fun, reflective... and it will be, unforgettable. The reef and surrounding sealife is the best in the region. This team really takes care of their environment. The team is the best I have seen yet and is in my view, the secret sauce to Mirihi being such a success. The commitment, pride and dedication to serve that the Mirihi team has is quite incredible. From the moment you come through the arrival gate of Male till when you depart, the team makes sure you are transported to another world. Thanks Mirihi Team for an amazing experience!

I used to write many reviews on our vacation in Tripadvisor. However, I felt that we had not experienced real special moment in recent vacations since we routinely did serious diving vacations e.g. dive boats before Covid. As soon as things started open up, The Maldives was one of the few options we had to get away. We looked at Mirihi 10 years ago - based on the excellent review but were busy with our serious diving trips. Since we have been to many top diving destinations, our expectation for The Maldives was an average one. But we were positively surprised! Mirihi turned out o be one of our most wonderful vacations ! If you want to do good divings but also look to relax in a peaceful beautiful nature without giving up certain luxury, you definitely should consider Mirihi. We did two dives in the morning, took it easy in the afternoon and enjoyed beautiful dinner in the evening. What makes Mirihi so special and unique? Mirihi is a small island resort which retains the character and beauty of The Maldives nature. Quiet and peaceful. Because of the small size of the resort, the Mirihi staffs can focus in providing you with personal service and experience. You do not feel the standard procedures of the large luxury resorts here. In stead, you have faces and names who take care of you during your time there. Mirihi staffs take extra steps to fulfill your wishes - as unique as You. We chose the beach villa because of two reasons. We felt that we had more outside space with direct access to the beautiful white sand beach. Furthermore, the beach villas were close to the dive center and boat jetty - where I carried my big underwater camera to the boat every morning. The villa is well equipped and the size of the villa was just right (we thought that it would be small). The high ceiling made you feel the space. We worked on our under water cameras in the villa and there was enough space for all the equipment. We usually had dinner at the Muraka restaurant with beautiful sunset and cool breeze. Despite the excellent buffet at Dhonveli main restaurant, we were not really the buffet type - except for the quick breakfast before diving. If you prefer buffet, you will not be disappoint with half or full board there - excellent high quality food. We will go for Bed and Breakfast next time. At Muraka, we enjoyed the unique service, excellent food from the young Sri Lankan Chef and the enjoyable company of Rajid and The One and Only Hussein (unique)! Unfortunately we forgot the name of the young gentleman who organized an outstanding dinner menu with pairing wine for us. He had broad knowledge of and true passion for wine. Since we are serious divers - we need to mention The Ocean Pro dive center. The guides and the boat team are friendly, knowledgable and very helpful. The dive operation is highly efficient with high safety standard. We did two tank boat dives every morning. The boat trips from the resort to dive sites took between 45 - 70 minutes. Diving in the South Arri Atoll exceeded all our expectations. Some of the dive sites were among the best we have seen. We were also extremely happy to see that the Maldives reef was recovering well from the severe bleaching events. The biodiversity was on average but life is abundant. For those who like snorkeling, Mirihi house reef is extensive and fun to explore (we did 4 dives including a night dive there). The Spa is also worth mentioning. High relaxing factor - excellent massage in the quiet set up - neither overdone nor overcomplicated. Also 5 stars to the place and the staffs. Overall, our time at Mirihi has no doubt taken a place among the top on our vacation list. Stunning small island, beautiful peaceful resort, very personal high quality service, and excellent dive operation with great dive sites make Mirihi real special. But at the end of the day, we believe that it is the motivated Mirihi staffs who make Mirihi different and truly unique. Our heartfelt thanks to the Mirihi team for one of the best vacations ever ! Mirihi - as unique as You. We will be back.

The best Maldives resort ever I stayed in Mirihi from 01/04 to 07/04 2021 - best holiday ever, Mirihi is the paradise on earth. The booking process: I have booked the hotel directly on Mirihi.com and the reservation manager has been super reactive and helped us planning our trip in the smallest details. Right after finalizing the booking I downloaded the Mirihi app and pre-booked some of the activities I wanted to do during my stay (e.g. whale shark cruise, scuba diving). Arrival in Male airport: right after passing the security control and picking up the luggage, we were picked up by a hotel representative who greeted us and escorted us to the Seaplane terminal. All in all, the transfer was super quick and waiting times almost null. Arrival in Mirihi: paradise on earth 🌍. No other words could better describe this amazing place. Upon arrival we were told we could remove our masks (except in the hotel restaurants) and forget our shoes. And so we did, and it felt like pure glory! Our stay: we stayed in water villa number 20. The room was super comfortable and we enjoyed the lack of a tv (really helped us disconnecting). The bathroom was not in the typical Maldivian style, but very spacious and with fully openable floor to roof windows and blinders. Our villa had a patio with direct access to our “aquarium” from which we could enjoy viewing turtles, corals, rays, trigger fish, black tip sharks, lemon sharks and many more. Activities: besides snorkeling that we enjoyed every available second, we have booked a whale shark cruise (highly recommended and we saw quite a few whale sharks) and I did four amazing dives with Ocean-Pro Diving with super professional guides. We have also enjoyed a post dinner night with all the diving center instructors explaining the local marine life in every little detail under the amazing sky of the Maldives. The house reef: one of the peculiarities of Mirihi is that the house reef circles the entire island and is home to many marine species: sharks, turtles, rays and mantas to mention a few. The reef, just like 95% of Maldives was hit by El Niño and started bleaching. However, also thanks to the amazing guys @Ocean-Pro and their conservation activities, corals have started growing back and they are quite visible. The food: simply amazing. We had an all inclusive fare and could enjoy a self service breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is cooked locally by Felix and his team and is really top quality (e.g. fresh oysters flown directly from Australia), actually higher quality than à la carte menùs of other Maldivian resorts I have tried. The wine cellar is one of the most varied across the Maldives. One of the highlights of the restaurant is that you will never eat the same food, as the menu changes daily. Covid-19 protocol: needless to say, we never felt unsafe. The protocol on the island was respected to the smallest detail and we were tested for COVID 19 (for free) prior to our departure. Test results came on time and the island doctor was really professional. Hotel staff and attention to customer: this is one of the biggest highlights of the island. Customers are clearly at the center of attention of all staff and taken care of from booking until departure. We have even received an email upon arrival in our home country to check if our return trip was fine. Kudos to Alexa and all the team at Mirihi for their professionalism. Last but not least, we learnt that during our stay the hotel was fully booked. However the island never felt crowded for a single second, we really had the feeling of having rented our private island. Will definitely come back!
