A verdant and lush tropical island resort, Lily Beach offers up an idyllic retreat. Located on the picturesque Huvahendhoo Island in the Ari Atoll accessed by seaplane transfer, its setting is ideal for those looking to unwind in gorgeous surroundings. The resort has more than its fair share of activities on offer and there are some excellent diving sites in the vicinity. Guests staying here benefit from a five-star, all-inclusive experience with top notch amenities and services.

All of the 131 villas and suites at Lily Beach are designed with relatively affordable luxury in mind. They offer plenty of space, privacy and creature comforts. Some of the accommodation is located on the island, whilst the rest is set over the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Common to all types of accommodation are coffee and tea making facilities, a flat-screen satellite TV with DVD player, air conditioning, a ceiling fan and plenty of private outdoor space.

Dining options are plentiful, with four restaurants serving a variety of fresh cuisine. Enjoy Asian dishes at Tamarind, Japanese cuisine with live demonstrations at Teppanyaki, or visit Les Turquoises d’Aqua for the resort’s most elegant dining experience. Lily Maa is the resort’s main restaurant and offers international buffets with special themed nights held regularly. There are also three bars offering a range of refreshing drinks, including cocktails, mocktails and premium brands.

There’s a wide variety of all-inclusive activities, entertainment offerings, services, excursions and products on offer. All guests receive a cooling box for use on the beach and snorkelling equipment. There’s also the opportunity to try out a range of non-motorised water sports along with access to the sports centre. Last but not least, there’s a good selection of excursions including trips to local fishing villages and sunset cruises.

Lily Beach welcomes children of all ages and has lots to offer them. At Turtle Kids Club, there’s a broad range of exciting activities available for children ages 3-12, with an outdoor playground offering a number of play facilities such as swings, a slide and a basketball court. Families are advised to book the Family Beach Villas, each of which are set conveniently close to the resort’s main amenities and comprise two interconnecting villas offering plenty of space. There’s also a shallow children’s pool and a special seating area just for younger ones at the Lily Mac restaurant. Parents are reminded to supervise their young ones at all times.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • Driver-guide: Very punctual, except for pick up for airport when he was delayed by >30 mins due to road closures. Vehicle very clean and well maintained- plenty of water and supplies of clothing for religious sites, tissues, postcards etc. Very good at understanding what level of conversation we wanted. Happy to stop for paracetamol, supermarket etc. Took us to signal box at railway since we were early (which was very interesting)

    The Walawwa: Lovely place to arrive at and get a bit of rest. Great pool, lovely rooms and food etc. Peaceful oasis so close to town.

    Wilpattu Camp: Wonderful food- really enjoyed trying lots of new things in excellent surroundings.Felt like the place had not been visited much recently (which I don’t think it had due to the terrorist attacks) so our safari guide had been brought up from another park and did not know the park too well- it worked out well though and we saw all the animals we hoped to see so no complaints on that front. We did feel that we should have been told about extra things we could have done- when we commented on the great food on final day we were told that they could have done a cookery demo for us, but it was too late at that point. It worked well for us but clients should probably know that they are likely to have multiple wildlife in their tents (eg frogs)- didn’t bother us at all, but others it might do. We were given a questionnaire to fill in at the end whilst all the staff were standing around, which wasn’t ideal as you felt a bit of pressure! Felt really well looked after here!

    Water Gardens Sigiriya: Beautiful suites with plunge pools- quiet and peaceful with lovely big swimming pool. Food good

    Jungle Beach: Beautiful location on beach. Rooms good. Food a bit limited I would have liked a bit more variety ideally.

    Camellia House: Lovely location- beautiful views. Food OK but service below average- our food orders were wrong a couple of times and even pre-ordered food was delayed. Tea factory tour was only an hour and that was the main reason to be here. It was interesting but quite brief seeing it was the main attraction according to our itinerary. Also, we were taken there in a minibus which didn’t have seatbelts on all seats and was quite smelly- not up to the standard of the usual transportation. Rooms were described as having panoramic views- one did have amazing views but the other one definitely didn’t.

    Galle Face: Lovely old hotel- but it did have some problems (leaking ceiling and ‘smuts’ coming out of air conditioning.) Weather very bad (spectacular storms). It was a shame the street food tour couldn’t take place but totally understandable given the weather, however we enjoyed our dinner here and free drinks/canopes!). Good choice at breakfast.
