The resort is excellent. The island is not very big, but does not look crowded. The house reef is fantastic on both sides of the island. Food and staff excellent (special thanks to Jaleed). Platinum all-inclusive program is one of the best I've ever experienced. I advise you to book on arrival all excursions (go for all 3 included in the program, although you might choose to go twice to Coral Garden instead of Fishing Sunset). From the optional (payed) excursions do not miss the Ocean Adventure. Room tips: Water Villas are the best choice. Some minor suggestions: 1. To have a marine biologist available for more information and, maybe, evening presentations, since the house reef is fabulous; 2. To have more movies available for the open air cinema (only one during our 7 days stay); 3. To provide a list with the available CDs and DVDs to rent (since you have a professional player in the rooms); 4. To provide more information on where the arrival desk can be find in the airport.

My husband and I stayed at Lily Beach for a week on our honeymoon before traveling to another resort. I don't even know where to begin, Lily Beach is INCREDIBLE. From beginning to end our stay was flawless. We stayed in an overwater villa and greatly enjoyed the room and our pool! The food was incredible and not repetitive, the spa was wonderful, and a special shoutout to the dive center on the island for being phenomenal. The staff at Lily is what made our experience unforgettable. They were all so friendly and genuine about making our stay the best it could be. Special thanks to Hussain at Lily Maa and Saeed at Aqva and Tamarind. They took care of us everyday and it was a pleasure to get to know them. We were very impressed with the honeymoon package and what it included. All of the staff made sure our honeymoon was extra special. A well deserved 5 Star hotel rating. Thank you Lily Beach for an unforgettable experience, we cannot wait to come back!!

We spent one off-season week here in May 2022, a most memorable one of our family holiday trips. The location's beauty and the beauty of nature surpass every expectations. We stayed in the lagoon villa which has a perfect location for families with kids, provides fantastic privacy and sort of private snorkeling reef section right in front of your terrace. On the other hand, it is close to the main restaurant, bar and the family pool bar. Dinners in the main restaurant were fantastic, we loved the premium all-inclusive service of the island, including 3 trips. We always had lunch in the Vibes bar, enjoyed the atmosphere, the staff there were very kind. We have never done snorkeling before, and we were very lucky to have met Morgan, who is a fantastic tutor for snorkeling, introduced us to the island's features, the currents around the island and did a great job during the boat trips. My wife started with "no, I cannot do this" and after a few days she was able to remove the life jacket. Thank you, Morgan :) And thanks to the whole Lily team. We hope to return soon.

Lovely to meet you Lorenzo. It surpassed all our expectations, pure paradise for us and our only wish was that our brief stay was a little longer. However we expect to return in the not too distant future. Staff were delightful and accommodating in particular: Abdullah, Tootou ,Jaleel, Lily Mae Soppe & Saeed, Aqvs Peter & Nizam,Vibe’s Transport Fushi & Sayish Suvrinathi at Spirits bar Mavan & Ais Guest Relations Moonimaa Lounge at Male Airport Ahmed Yaaseen airport assistant he was so helpful with my husband as he had an injury to his leg. I just wondered if you had any lost property in the 2 villas we stayed in. We were originally in Lagoon villa 201 but we were upgraded courtesy of Ricardo to a water villa 327. I appear to have lost a black and white zebra stripe bikini which was a brand new gift / I know it seems a little bit fussy! 😬 I just wondered if it had been found please Look forward to hearing from you and seeing you again.

Lily beach is paradise. We stayed in the lagoon villa where we had enough privacy and the villa itself was big enough and well foreseen. Most days we just stayed inside relaxing or we went snorkeling in front of our stay. In less than 10m you can find the most beautiful coral reefs and fish. There's a great variety of food and the cooks are all very friendly and helpful. I'm a vegetarian and there was plenty of options during all meals of the day. Overall the staff was so friendly and welcoming. On the 1st of May we did our wedding ceremony and everything was perfect and well arranged. Thank you Shareef, Alin and everyone else of Lily beach. We'd love to come back.

I can not say enough good things about Lily Beach. Upon arrival we were greeted by Thoottey, our butler, who would be an integral part of our experience. He was very helpful and we really enjoyed getting to know him. By the time we left, we saw him as a friend with the inside-scoop instead of our butler. The island is unbelievably beautiful. We stayed in the Sunset Villa, which was beyond expectation! All of the restaurants were delicious. Lily Maa is the main buffet restaurant, and it really surprised me with how good it was. Definitely the best buffet restaurant I have been to with so many great options!! Vibes and Aqua were also very good, but our favorite was Tamarind, the Thai/Indian restaurant. We were able to visit many times, and I was impressed with EVERY thing I got there. Especially the butter chicken!! I was so impressed with the chef and enjoyed being able to watch him cook, as the main food prep area is in the center of the beautiful restaurant. I was also impressed with the quality of the mixed drinks as the bars, especially the old-fashioneds and espresso martinis! We loved our multiple daily snorkels and couldn't believe how many fish there were. We also saw loads of sharks as well as a few turtles, squid, and various rays. The coral is mostly dead, but that did not detract from the snorkeling as the marine life was abundant. Thoottey even came with us a couple of times. We did do the sunset cruise and ocean adventure outings. They were both good, especially the ocean adventure. We had the best time and were lucky enough to see a Manta and a whale shark. We happened to be the first boat to locate this whale shark, so it was an especially magical experience. The service in all respects was above and beyond. Everyone was so friendly and helpful from the restaurants to the bars and housekeeping. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone!!

We had a wonderful stay on this island. The bungalows were very nice and housekeeping was great. The food was amazing and the personal extremely friendly. Alin was our favorite!! The diving center was very professional. We had a great time with Charl and his team. Last but not least we liked the various activities proposed by the management.

We have travelled to many parts of the world and this trip to Lily Beach Resort and Spa would have to be one of the best (by far) trips we have been on. From the moment we arrived to the moment we (reluctantly) left, we were relaxed and had some of the most amazing experiences of a lifetime. I was skeptic about this trip, being on a small island we would get bored so only booked 5 nights! Worst decision of the trip! We should have done 10 nights! All the staff at Lily Beach were fantastic, but a huge thank you to Rafi (at the Beach Bar) and Morgan (water sports and tours). Their service and attention to our needs was sublime and made the trip from good to bloody amazing! Being the “off season” we weren’t sure what to expect with the weather. Don’t worry about the off season, we had amazing weather. Even with a coupe of monsoon storms (lasting no more than 30 minutes) there was plenty to do and didn’t interrupt our trip at all! We swam with sharks, swam with whale sharks, toured with dolphins and fed stingrays! This is only the trips we went on and not to mention the beauty the island has to offer! All in all we thought Maldives was a bucket list trip and once in a lifetime… not a chance, we will be back and soon! Highly recommended if you want some of the most amazing experiences the Maldives has to offer!

Poor customer service, doesn't give a damn since you have already paid. Every question is deflected to either 3rd parties or your travel agent. Sea Plane transfers are planned basis minimum cost to resort, they won't fly until it's fully occupied. This led to delay of 3 minutes and sea plane company refused to fly. We were DEBOARDED and put up in a shabby hotel in the city. No refund or extension of any night or any other gesture to make up for the poor first day experience in Maldives. Blamed things on bad weather although flew other guests to another property of Lily (because passengers were enough to cover cost). Room service is terrible, after multiple calls, no one came to attend. It's like an AirBnB with bed and cooked food.
