South Ari Atoll
The buffet was really good. Beautiful sunset bar.
9 days in paradise”
In the Northern Atolls, 45 mins away by seaplane. Service is first class throughout-from check in at the seaplane counter all the way to the international counter returning home. We were there in late July. Not sure if the occupant rate of the resort but for most of part not too many people. The buffet restaurant is ~1/3 full , and the other restaurants almost deserted. We stayed on the villa on the ocean sans swimming pool. Every morning we took a dip in the ocean, go to lunch, lazy around and take a nap. More swimming in the ocean or at the infinity pool before dinner (we usually skipped lunch). Went on a couple of fishing trip. Wrong tide and we didn't catch much. The villa is big enough and comfy. Our house cleaning person "Naeem" is great. He did an excellent job! Most people are polite and courteous. The buffet restaurant has enough variety, though not top notch. Plenty of fishes in the ocean. The water did get cloudy on our last day.
Definitely will stay again”
I loved this place. This was my first time in the Maldives and I’m glad that I had an opportunity to stay here. The customer service was phenomenal, everyone was friendly and anticipated my needs. I loved how the resort is incorporated into the island. Whether inside or outside I felt relaxed and could hear the waves. I could say so much but it was a lovely experience and I plan to stay here on my next visit.
An Island with potential but with flaws”
On arriving at Male, we just missed the previous Seaplane and had to wait 4 hours for the next, not really what we expected. We finally arrived at 7pm. The next morning we had time to make our way around the island, it was well set up, and quite beautiful. In comparison to the other 4 resorts we had previously visited, this on first looks was on top. Our villa (501) was incredible, so much room, quite secluded, and just enjoyable to relax in, the best room by far and better than water villa's we had stayed in previously. However, when trying to make a reservation at the two 'booking restaurants (Which are part of the all inclusive package) we were told they were fully booked until night 6 of our 7 night stay. This is unacceptable and brought down the mood. Having talked to fellow guests, many went through the same issue. Surely someone can resolve this issue?
Great hotel, but extremely limited food options for vegetarians”
We thought the hotel was fantastic in terms of location and asthetics, however we felt that as vegetarians, food options were terribly limited. We were on all inclusive but the restaurants that had good vegetarian options were booked out at night so we only managed to get them on 2 nights. This hugely defeated the benefit of being on all inclusive. If youre vegetarian - I wouldn’t recommend this hotel - we got tired of having pasta and pizza for every other meal.
Amazing Maldivian water villa resort with 5 Star experience ”
Pros - nice beautiful clear torquoise blue water , many pelagics ie manta rays, sharks , great service ranging from the greeting staff (Chandi/Rahul) to the restarant staff (Ang). Also lost my iphone in restaurant but the staff found it and kept it until i was looking for it - very safe place . Got a free upgrade from standard water villa to one with indoor pool Cons- none
Very family friendly. The beach villa with pool was perfect for our 10month and 2 year old. The baby slept while our son was playing in the pool and running into the beach back and forth. The kids club and babysitting service was excellent. Food at the buffet was great as well with many options. We will be returning again with a few other families next year.
We stayed in a Lagoon Villa with Pool for 6 nights and everything was perfect. The island is really beautiful, and so was the sea. The room was very comfortable and the staff was very friendly and caring.
The resort is fantastic - all the facilities are new and clean, and the service is very good. Our teenagers were impressed that WiFi worked well all over the island (except in far stretches of the beaches).
Total Relaxation ... Amazing Place”
We have spent 7 days on the Island, on a full board package and we did anything extra to that standard (for reference). It was our first time in Maldives and for us, it was amazing. The hotel is stunning, with awesome facilities, staff and service. Highlights : New facilities, 24h service, amazing buffet, several restaurantes in 1 small island, top staff, main pool/beach area perfect. Snorkel was great and we had sharks everyday to swim with. "Downside" : While every extra as a considerable cost, it is normal on a 5 star hotel and on a isolated island that is even more understandable. But $150/massage for a spa that appear to be empty looked more a wasted opportunity to exceed expectations and blow away the guests. Suggestions : 5 days is "enough" but we manage 7 with no issues. Just being at the main beach snorkeling and resting is awesome. Use the hydroplane as a option to get to the island, as the saving with the commercial plane + speed boat is not worth it. Enjoy !
Excellent hotel. We’ve stayed in Dhigali during low season, but the weather was perfect and the hotel was booked only for 1/3. All facilities are new, water clean with many fishes at the reef, the food at the restaurants delicious (but pricey), staff was friendly, especially Bibi at the restaurant and Jin at the reception. Overall a very pleasent stay.
Wow wow this is paradise”
I’ve travelled a lot and many high end resorts and this is simply the best. So relaxed, well run, fantastic facilities and the food was awesome. Highly recommend if your going to any of the 4 restaurants to simply ask the chef to decide. That’s all we did and the food. My birthday occurred during the stay and they went way out of their way. Catching the sea plane is a must. Thanks to Terry and Gena.
Best Honeymoon Place”
My husband and I stayed here last July for our late honeymoon and they made it extra special and took really good care of us. I was already pregnant when we were able to get a chance to have our honeymoon and I wasn't feeling well with the traveling and all. Regardless of my illness due to pregnancy, they were able to make it special for us. They even made sure that all the food I consumed during my stay there are safe for me as well. They even surprised us with a special cake and wine in our room. Before they gave the wine, they asked if we would prefer wine or juice due to my pregnancy. We just chose the wine to make it romantic and my husband drank my share of the wine. I would and has been recommending this place to my friends and families as well and they are considering staying here too when they get a chance to go to the Maldives. Working in the hospitality industry, we were so particular with service and they were able to provide excellent service like a five-star hotel service.
The most wonderful experience possible - would highly recommend the water villa!”
Wonderful and friendly staff, brand new facilities and breathtaking views!
Simply amazing. Everything you could dream for in the Maldives and more ”
This hotel was the best by far in the Maldives. It exceeded our expectations in everysingle way. I truly know what it's like to feel pampered and have staff go above and beyond. This is how the 1% holiday without question. I felt part of the club even if only for a few days before going back to real life.
A Dream Come True”
My husband and I decided to go to Dhigali for our honeymoon. We loved everything about our stay there! All the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. We stayed in a water villa which was gorgeous as was the rest of the resort's facilities. There was an abundance of fish we could see on our deck without even snorkeling! We opted for the breakfast and dinner package which I recommend. Not only was the food delicious, but they varied it each day so we didn't get bored. We participated in a couple excursions. We were lucky to see a lot of dolphins on our dolphin cruise. We also caught a couple big fish on our deep sea fishing adventure, which the kitchen prepared to perfection that evening. The spa was divine. We were only a little disappointed with the spa prices because they vary slightly from what is advertised online. Overall, we couldn't imagine having a better experience. We give it our highest recommendation!
Great house keeping staff, but reception staff needs work & update guests about cancelled classes!”
Pros: - Airport transfer tho long, was so comfy - Water Villa is very clean, kudos to the amazing housekeepers who come twice a day and go above and beyond their jobs (we lost our keycard during night snorkelling and they came running in the rain within 3 mins! + once he saw us waiting forever for the full buggy, he personally called for one!) - Superb food at the buffets! :D - Free snorkelling gear, except life vests Cons: - Lots of mosquitoes! - The worst experience TRYING to go for the art painting class! :( Even after informing the reception that WE'LL BE THERE and checking if it's still on, ALL 3 times it was cancelled w/o informing us. We woke up at 7AM on a HOLIDAY to prepare, only to find an empty area with NO ONE or notice! - Bad plumbing at Water Villas' toilets; there was a sewage smell every time we enter the shower - Stairs down the water at Water Villas are super slippery from algae - Even on half-board, beverages like water are actually chargeable at the dinner buffet
Bad communication and unpleasant waiting for room error to be settled.”
We are a family of 5 adults who stayed for 1night in Deluxe Beach Bungalow room and 3nights in Water Villas. This was communicated to Mr Shamaan a whole month before arrival, however upon arrival we found out that we were in two completely different rooms (Beach Villa vs Deluxe Beach Bungalow) PLUS our booking was mixed up as 2 nights in land villas instead of 1. Turns out, our room for 3 pax (the kids) was upgraded without informing us and we were placed on the other side of the island from our parents' room - then the hotel asks if we would like to pay to upgrade our parents' room. :O We chose to keep to our booking and it became a wait of 5 wasted hours in the rooms, doing nothing but waiting for their call. When we were finally moved back to the rooms we booked, the 3 pax room only had its basic double bed. We had to call reception AGAIN and Mr Abrahim insisted that Agoda's "+1 extra bed" charges are only for an extra pax in the room, not the bed. -.-" It was not a good first day!
Magnificent honeymoon ”
Dhigali Maldives exceeded our expectations and more! Our experience from arrival to departure was nothing short of amazing. All the staff were wonderful and made us feel so special and welcomed from the start. We greatly appreciate the thoughtful touches that were added to make our honeymoon unforgettable. The food was also delicious from all the restaurants we tried (capers, jade, faru). Would definitely recommend the water villa with pool rooms! We would like to especially thank the staff who serviced our room for their impeccable service. All the facilities were clean and well kept. We were truly sad to leave paradise but hoping to return in the future!
The hotel is absolutely beautiful! Highly recommend the water and lagoon villas. Friendly staff, great food, amazing views, crystal clear water - will definitely go back!
