Just back from our holiday at Lily Beach....fantastic. We’ve stayed in nearby islands before but never here. Now we’ve stayed, I can say it’s the best experience we’ve had in the Maldives. Patrice and his team looked after us wonderfully, food great, drink flowing and services terrific. All of this whilst feeling very safe in terms of CoVid precautions. I can heartily recommend Lily Beach!

Hotel's Favorite
That's the question on everyone's mind right? Should we travel during the pandemic? The answer is: yes. You will likely be safer there than you are at home. They do free PCR testing on site for guests in case you need one, so no reason to not visit. Lily Beach is the number 1 All Inclusive resort in both the Maldives & Asia, and I guarantee you it will crack the top 10 word wide list next year, currently holds at 11th best. In the whole world! We are so fortunate, that this was our third visit, and we were the first guests back after lockdown. Lily Beach brought their A-game again. This was the first time I booked directly with the hotel and Idrys, with his professionalism and responsiveness had us pulling up our booking to a different Maldivian hotel, cancelling that, and opting for Lily Beach yet again. You'll love the top quality food and the top shelf drinks all included in their package: Prosecco, Champagne, Black Johnny Walker, Russian standard, 70-80 different wines - you name it. You'll enjoy the excursion and the fact that you don't even need to bring snorkel gear (just ask for it at water sports when you get there, and before you fly home just drop it off). The sooner you visit the better, even though we've been there previously at around 98% occupancy before you still had to look both ways on the beach to see about 5 people all together. Currently they are still in the ramping up process after lockdown, so take advantage of that private island feeling you can get if you book now. There would be too many staff members to thank, and everyone would deserve a special thank you, however Peter, Karthik, Musthafa, Daria (Dasha) elevated our experience again. My daughter the day before we were leaving turned to me and said "I will miss everything about Lily Beach" so we clearly have to go back :) Special shout outs go to Patrice the resort manager, who is both super professional, but also always makes you feel comfortable by being laid back and friendly, and the same can be said about Michael the CEO (of both Lily Beach and Hideaway), whom we had the honor of having a drink with. Super management, super staff.

It was such a pleasure to welcoming you back and THANK YOU for your patronage and trust over the years! I trully feel as well that Lily is, one of the safest place to be and how wonderful it is to escape to your own private island, so to speak. I have shared your praises and thanks to the Team who do a remarkable job and exude incredible professionalism day in, day out. This is what makes Lily Beach #1 in Asia and 11 in the World. Thank you again and we all look forward to have the pleasure to welcoming you and the family back soon! (thank you also for the videos avaible on social media)

My husband and I stayed at Lily Beach on our honeymoon and it was spectacular from start to finish. We stayed in one of the 4 sunset over water villas. Our butler Ijlal made us feel right at home; he was extremely accommodating and flexible with all of our needs. We were provided with a personal phone if we had any questions or requests. The staff quickly learned what we liked and stocked our mini fridge based on what we had consumed the day before! Cleaning service was top notch. We borrowed bikes to travel from our villa to all of our meals (although Ijlal always offered to drive us in a golf cart). The food was delicious. Tamarind (indian/thai) was our favorite restaurant! Breakfast at Lily Maa was also wonderful; we loved our omelettes and fresh fruit/juice everyday. The dinner at Lily Maa also provided a great variety of options! And we loved our pre-dinner drinks at AQVA! We even had a few meat/cheese platters delivered to our villa for sunset happy hours. Highlights of the trip: Floating hammock and private sand bank. It doesn't get more romantic then being in the middle of the ocean with someone you love! The staff provided us with snacks and drinks for both of these activities. Highly recommend floating breakfast in your private infinity pool! This was so special and fun! Covid precautions- all staff wore masks and gloves. Hand sanitizer was provided in all restaurants and main areas. Felt very safe. COVID testing offered if required for next destination. General manager, Patrice was also extremely friendly and accommodating. We look forward to returning to Lily Beach in the near future!

Welcome last minute break after a unique year! A beautiful island with wonderful facilities and delightful staff who seem to love their role in making your holiday special. Patríce, the resort manager, leads from the front and is a discrete but constant presence that ensures standards are maintained. The diving proved the remarkable icing in the cake with both Mantas and the highly elusive Whale Shark. We will certainly be back.
