Lily Island is something so special ... who loves the Maldives and hasn't been here yet hasn't enjoyed something very nice. Lily has not been named the best all-in resort in the Maldives in years for nothing and leading resort all over the world. The 300-metre-long island offers 2 beach clubs that are so different that you think you are in the vibes in the Bahamas and in the Aqaus in the best beach club in Ibiza. The main restaurant is so incredible with the motto evenings - every wish is read from your lips. Create sushi or homemade pasta, the huge fish counter with barbeque, the 50 various Premium cheeses, over 70 wines to choose from from Taittinger to Mersault - incredible!! The diving station is premium, the gym huge, football field, tennis school - the island is well divided. The highlight is the covered raft in the middle of the sea, where you spend 3 hours for lunch and snorkelling with champus and packed lunch - or the legendary feeding of the 100 sharks, rays, mackerel at the bar. In the evening at Vibes is life music. We are on the 3rd Sometimes there and - this is not the last time. As a connoisseur of many departments, a note - the friendliness of the staff is so incredibly great!!!

spacious and modern water villa with terrace and beautiful ocean view. direct stairs to good swimming distances in ocean. the resort is well managed and has a motivated staff. particularly appreciated is the great cuisine under the guidance of the chef Olivier. a professional and harmonious diving team with great diving sites (manta point, wrack).

This was our 4th visit to Lily Beach and probably the best - absolutely perfect from start to finish. If you are looking for an all-inclusive Maldivian resort, you really need look no further than Lily Beach (we have also stayed at Centara Grand and Sun Siyam and, in our opinion, these two do not compare). Highlights - Overwater villa - kept immaculately clean and beautifully decorated on occasions by the best room boy ever, Toppi Lily Maa - the buffet, as on previous visits, was amazing. The Christmas Eve gala buffet was another level! Sending a massive thank you to our lovely waiter, Solhi, for making our meal times so much more special. This gentleman is a true credit to the resort. Vibes - we spent our days on the beach, just down from the Vibes pool. The service from Peter and his team was always top notch and nothing was too much trouble. Lunch was nice there too. Hamacland - Christmas morning was spent in a lagoon a mile offshore on a floating hammock. We were provided with a cool box of drinks and a beautiful fresh fruit platter. So relaxing and a memorable way to spend the big day. Staff - all of them are so friendly and helpful but, as well as those mentioned above, a special thank you to Suman (Vibes), Jaleel (Lily Maa) and the buggy man (so sorry, we did not catch your name, despite being lazy and taking many a buggy trip!) Planning our 5th trip already - no point in trying anywhere else - this place is simply perfect!

We traveled around New Years Eve for 12 days and it was wonderful. Very friendly people and a very nice place to stay. Alin is the best waiter ever and aqua is a very nice place to spend the day. the corals are already cut off and broken but there are many colorful fish that you can see while snorkeling.

My husband and I travelled to the Maldives in September 2021. The vacation was an absolute dream!!! We spent 14 days and it was not enough to fully embrace this beautiful experience. We stayed at the beginning in one of the Lagoon Villas which are spacious and comfortable with direct access to the reef. Mr Lorenzo (hotel manager) kindly upgraded us to the Water Villa, which was an absolute blast with a private pool and deck! The rooms were spectacular as well as access to the lagoon. We had a minibar that was refilled on a regular basis with soft drinks and wine (included in the package). Mr. Lorenzo is very kind and takes the time to talk to guests to ensure that everyone enjoys the stay. We would like to thank him again for his kindness and making our holidays unforgettable and as one of a kind experience. We had an interesting discussion with him about Chateau Petrus, which is on Lily Beach wine list among many other grand crus. The resort offers kayaks, paddleboards and snorkelling gear that can be used at any time and is included in the room fee. Moreover, in our platinum package we had 3 free excursions – sunset cruise, fishing and snorkelling which were spectacular, especially sunset cruise. We would also highly recommend joining the Ocean Adventure trip organised by the resort, as we were lucky to swim along the whale sharks and manta rays, and take videos and pictures of these magnificent creatures! There are a lot of corals and beautiful tropical fish around the island so expect beautiful sights whilst snorkelling especially around the Water Villas. You can also see turtles and harmless reef sharks are a given! We ate breakfasts and dinners mainly at the buffet which was diverse and delicious, although Lunch at Aqua Bar was our favourite. The food was simply impeccable, quality and service comparable with Michelin starred restaurants. We started our day with a glass of Tattinger and champagne would accompany us throughout the day. We would top it up with a couple of delicious cocktails, which are served at 4 different places on the island. In all-inclusive package there are many good wines from all over the world and if you have any doubts which one to choose, have an enlightening conversation with Vinod – first class sommelier whom you can usually meet in the Aqua Bar. If you are reading this review and looking for a top all-inclusive luxury holiday in the Maldives then look no further. After doing our own research for our first visit to the Maldives we made the right decision to visit Lily Beach and now we would not consider going to any other resort. A big thank you to all the staff (especially Irufan and Shifaz) and we look forward to seeing you all again! Gosia and Pawel S.
