Lily Hotels and Resorts owns and operates two resorts in the Maldives: Lily Beach Resort & Spa and Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa.
Lily Beach boasts a worldwide reputation for its pristine beaches, lush tropical vegetation and its exotic house reef just a few meters away from the shore. The favourable location in the spectacular Ari Atoll places Huvahendhoo Island, on which Lily Beach is situated, in close proximity to some of the most amazing dive sites in the world.
The stunning natural beauty around the island can make any stay at Lily Beach special however it is often the outstanding quality of the service, combined with the genuine warmth shown by the resort's team members towards guests that create the longest lasting memories, and keeps attracting guests back year after year.
The Lily Beach Resort and Spa is a 25-minute seaplane ride away from Velana International Airport.
Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is located on the crescent-shaped Dhonakulhi Island in the north of the Maldives belonging to the Haa Alifu Atoll; 290 km from the capital Malé. Following a $50million investment in the redevelopment of the whole-island and an extensive renovation of the property, previously known as Island Hideaway, the five-star resort offers guests the luxury of space and privacy across 297,000 square metres.
The 103 luxury villas fall into eight categories ranging from beachfront to over-water. Each villa has been carefully positioned to offer peace, comfort and privacy to guests. Home to the first fully functional marina in the Maldives, due to its unique reef system, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa boasts an enviable dive spot close by.
The resort offers an extensive programme of wellness and sporting experiences, vast culinary offering, and one of the largest spas in the Maldives. Characterised by its intimate ambience and remote location, the island resort stays true to its name and offers guests a true hideaway.
