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.

The pandemic kept us at home for more than a year, so as soon as we were vaccinated, we booked a trip to Mirihi, our 5th in 10 years. It's a long way from San Diego- 27 hours of travel. But it's so perfect for us that we keep coming back. No TV. No pool. No disco. The reef is recovering and we saw 122 different species of fish...we keep track, and this is the most we've found. It was the best possible way for us to rejoin the world!

Hotel's Favorite
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

Mirihi is like a tasty candy dropped to  the ocean. I said candy because it is a very small island but it has everything that you can imagine. This island has many advantages for couples who need absolute rest. You can live in the island with bare foot during all your stay. The sand is very clean and soft. When you enter into your villa a very beautiful Maldivian music welcomes you. Our villa was compact also like the island but all necassary space, furniture or tools were available. Their surprise chocolate sevice makes you happy when you enter the room. You must snorkel at the beautiful house reef enjoying very rich marine life and you must walk bare foot on the beach to feel the amazing sand under your feet. Do not forget spending time on very comfortable hammocks. There are two restaurants both are managed by a famous chef Felix. You need to try all menu one by one if you have enough days. You will find a lot of unique tastes. One of the restaurant is over the sea; you can observe the sharks during your dinner. The staff were very high class and serving with their heart. I hope soon we will visit again Mirihi for a longer stay.

10th time Maldives, 3rd time Mirihi, just returned last night: Mirihi remains in the pole-position. Completely without worries and bugs, geared for quiet seclusion, great reef, great food, great team, perfect service (incl all organisation, no covid-worries), great bungalow, nice hangouts on the beach and sunset, cooperative fish and birds :).... and the medium-rare tuna for lunch and dinner is something to kill for. Island concept to minimze noise emission is partially overdone though: not even one night to have a nice party. But if you catch villa 21 ... go for your own then :) ... Monsun did no harm, actually we were happy to not have bloating sun every minute, and some clouds made the sunsets to be not from this world ...

I spent another fabulous week at Mirihi on my own, and I am so glad I did. What made me return to this particular island is, above all, the quality of service. Discreet but always available when needed, attentive without being overbearing - a true delight. It feels like a little gem in the middle of the Indian Ocean, and you can be as active or as relaxed as you want - I managed to read 5 books in a week, get a lovely tan, and eat deliciously throughout (I am a big fan of both coconut and tuna, so I am very easily pleased here). I have considered trying other resorts in the Maldives, but given my level of happiness with Mirihi, there's really no need, and I am glad to join the ranks of the many delighted returning customers that keep coming back year on year!
