Lily Beach was the first resort in the Maldives to offer a Premium All Inclusive Plan where high standards and variety of food, drinks and activities are included in the price. Add to that great snorkelling on the house reef, fine beaches, stylish accommodation and you have an impressive package. Excellent facilities for children make this a perfect choice for families.
Lily Beach Resort & Spa enjoys a great worldwide reputation for its pristine beaches, lush tropical vegetation and the exotic house-reef just few metres away from the shore.

Peace, serenity and beautiful natural surroundings combined with excellent resort facilities and services makes Lily Beach Resort a perfect place for a restful holiday, fun family gathering or a romantic getaway. There are separate child friendly areas and quiet zones for adults, including an adults only pool.
