Travelers' Choice
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.

We have just come back from 2 weeks on Mirihi Island and have literally had one of the most amazing holidays we have ever had and can't wait to return again in the future. Everyone who works on the island makes it a special place, it has such a beautiful and kind feel to it. Nothing is too much trouble, they make everyone feel special and the standards of everything, from the customer care, to the accommodation, to the food (absolutely fabulous food!!!), to the dive center, to the spa, to the cocktails!! , absolutely everything is outstanding. The proof is in how many people return year after year, this is truly incredible. The diving centre is truly exceptional too, if you are a diver, there are so many beautiful dive sites within an hour by boat and the team led by Philip is just fabulous, all the dive masters and the support crew on the boat make your experience so safe and absolutely hassle free, even if you are brand new to diving. Doing a PADI course there is the best place to do it. We can't wait to go back to dive there again. And if you aren't a diver, but like snorkelling, the housereef all around the island gives you enough to keep you busy for weeks, with a huge amount of fish, starting right underneath your water villa, black tipped sharks, sting rays literally swim underneath you. We even had the immense blessing of snorkelling with a whale shark right by the pontoon.

We have just returned from our 3rd visit to the Mirihi. This is truly a magical place and we were lucky enough to be there this time at Christmas where a gala buffet was set in a stunning Christmas market built especially for the occasion. If you like hot tubs, swimming pools, grandiose villas and late night parties, this is not the place for you. However, if you like feeling like you're, for the most part, on your own peaceful island with not a care in the World, a fantastic reef for snorkelling, dive sites, a crystal clear lagoon for swimming, a spa should you wish, amazing sea life, superb staff who will really look after you even if you just want some peace, Mirihi is waiting for you. Here the promotional videos are true to life. Two key points for us, Mirihi may be small but for the times we've been, I think the only time you realise there's more than a handful of people there is at dinner and it's no stress even then! Secondly, if you need something ask the fantastic staff, they will help however they can (even before you arrive!). They answered some of our queries on entry requirements, tailored a snorkelling excursion and the Chefs always checked our son was OK with the buffet food offering alternatives if you have dietary requirements. As for COVID, you feel safe here but you do feel like you escape it. Most areas are open air so masks are only required for going up to the buffet. The staff wear masks and your temperature is checked at breakfast without it feeling invasive. There are medical staff if required. Go, take off your shoes, bathe in the clear waters, feel the smooth sands, see the gorgeous sunsets and at night look up at a deep, black soup full of sparkling stars then notice the big smile that is fixed on your face and the relaxed feeling that has enveloped your soul. Dear Alexa Just wanted to thank you so much for yet another magical stay at Mirihi. One particular thing we took for granted whilst we were with you and realised at the airport. We heard a few other people moaning about other resorts who had not managed to get all their staff back after COVID and therefore the service was suffering. We suddenly realised, you were almost at capacity with guests and had told us you hadn't got all your staff back yet BUT we didn't notice!!! You guys must be running around all day to keep us all happy. What an amazing job you are doing, I cannot thank you enough. I hope you get all your people back safely soon. Please can you say hi and pass on thanks for making our stay, once again, so special as you look after our every need making it such an easy job in the process. I don't know how you all do it - to you, Raoof (he's been so great sorting all our excursions out!), Sandra (really patient, kind and fun diving with my son), Philipp, Yves, Felix, Fifshan (a very happy, funny guy!), Hussain, Mohamed, Sadath, the guy who cooked pancakes and eggs (sorry you all made us so relaxed, I've not remembered his name!). These are front of house staff but we know there's more doing the maintenance, cooking, cleaning who we don't really meet but whenever we crossed paths there was always a smile and hello. You are the dream team! Take care and stay safe Until we meet again, goodbye for now Mickey

Spent an amazing week here, desperate for a getaway from Covid restrictions and stress. Weather is perfect in December, always breezy and never overwhelmingly hot, only two spits of rain. This our second trip to Maldives, and this resort was an unbelievable find. The quality of food, lodging, amenities, and customer service far exceeded others with much higher price tags. Their Covid awareness was much appreciated, with the staff masked 100%, masks required of guests in common areas, and plenty of distancing, sanitizer stations, and frequent cleaning. They even provide 'Mirihi' masks and a lovely cinnamon scented hand sanitizer bottle to keep. Mirihi is luxuriously small, you never feel overrun by other guests. They took care of us from the moment we landed in Male to the moment we departed. Pest control is on point, we saw 2 flies and 2 mosquitos the whole trip. We stayed in a beach villa (having tried the overwater bungalow experience our last trip and not loving the close proximity to neighbors or how sound carries over water), and it was truly a relaxing, perfect accommodation. Anything you need can be requested, from robes and slippers to extra beach cushions. Being able to walk out onto the soft (really soft) sand and slip right into calm waters for a swim or snorkel was a dream. They maintain a large grounds staff, so expect to see cleaning maintenance pass through your space every morning as they rake up the detritus. You'll appreciate it, however, as nobody wears shoes (ever), so it makes for comfy walking. The villa itself is quite comfortable, albeit the beds a little on the harder side (I still slept like a baby). Full minibar that can be tailored to your tastes, great snacks (open the BBQ nuts!), a bluetooth Bose speaker, and a Nespresso machine we used almost daily. And perhaps silly to some, but as a curly girl I really appreciated the hair dryer having the rare diffuser attachment. The bathroom is outdoor, which I'd failed to notice prior to arrival, but it was bug-free and very zen like. The little touches they do are wonderful, like cards with literary phrases/poems on your bed each night, and handmade chocolates! Unlike many resorts, they don't nickel-and-dime for every rental - they offer basic water sports free of charge. You can use snorkel gear, kayaks, standup paddle boards and windsurfing gear to your heart's desire. There's even a ping pong table! My husband went diving several times, and had a lovely time. They saw 3 whale sharks, turtles, and a manta. Philipp the manager at the dive center was very experienced and fantastic, even emailed my husband some underwater video footage after we left, which has him over the moon. Thank you Philipp! Now the best part [for me], food and beverage. The food. Is amazing. Example: my husband loathes fish. He ate their fresh grilled fish almost every day. I don't eat meat, and was a happy girl with fish and veggie curries/dishes the whole stay. What they do, they do very very well, and Chef Felix is a genius, willing to customize anything (I forgot to get the beet curry recipe!! :( ). The buffets are definitely the way to go (a shoutout to our waiter Hussain, so sweet), though we had some very nice snacks/meals off the menu with cocktails. And the cocktails! We're craft cocktail junkies, and they had The best cocktail menu using high end liquor. The G&Ts are to die for, and the rum old fashioned is delish. The bartenders are open to making whatever you want, however you want - a shoutout to Arun and Krishna, they were both talented, helpful, and super fun. We're also winos, and whatever you do, sign up for the Wine 'n Dine. The menu they created for us was amazing, but a LOT of food. Don't fill up on bread, the chef at Muraka is fantastic! And Shafraz is unbelievably knowledgable with wine, he is not to be underestimated. He chose incredible new wines based on our tastes, and continued to recommend selections the rest of our stay. We had many meals delivered to our villa, even drinks, and all arrived fresh, perfect temp, and tasty. I can't think of a single bad thing to say about Mirihi, it really hit all the marks for us. The personalized touches and friendly staff are great, from the gifted CD at the end, even the gentleman that tended our room daily was kind and thorough. Managers Alexa and Yves were great, always around ready with answers to questions or just checking in, but the staff could also read when you just wanted quiet moments (or hadn't had enough coffee...) and wouldn't hang around, which was key. Truly, TRULY, a memorable trip. We very much hope to return! Thank you all for such a lovely time!

We spent a good week at the Mirihi Island resort mid of November. It was just absolutely fantastic. The villas are really spacious and there are no TV's, a dream and the bathrooms are top. WiFi is good, if you cannot life without news or movies, you get in on your laptop. Right from the villa, one can go down the stairs and then start to swim. The water is clean and really very warm. Snorkling is unique, just like a very big aquarium. Fishes of all colours and sizes can be admired and they get so close to you, you can almost touch them. The Island is small, they have only 40 units, therefore really cosy. The food is outstanding. Felix, the Swiss Executive chef and his team spoiled us, just incredible. Thank you so much. And sitting outside on the porch before sunset with a wonderful cocktail, what a dream. The fitness room is not big, but has everything needed, free weights, a few machines, really great. For people wanting to go diving, there is a boat and a team ready to take you out. We had some divers in our party and they just loved it. I will definitely return, as soon as possible and next time, for sure, I will stay longer. We wish the entire Mirihi team all the best, they are all, without exception very friendly and helpful. Many of them already work there for many years, what shows what a great team they are and how excellent also the managment is.
