The Maldives desert island experience – Mirihi Island Resort

Nature in all her glory - no motorised water sports, TVs in villas


In the warm waters of the azure Indian Ocean lies a tropical dream island – Mirihi Island Resort. This emerald gem is just 350 metres in length and 50 metres wide, with its pristine nature, fringed-palm beaches and powdery sand, authentic hospitality and celestial quietness invites guests to leave their shoes behind and enjoy the ‘art of doing nothing’.

A 30-minute seaplane flight over the stunning reef formations, virgin islets, endless lagoons of every shade of blue, will have your guests in Paradise. While they wait to board the seaplane, they will be invited to the Mirihi Lounge at the seaplane terminal, where they can refresh and complete the check-in formalities before arriving at the island. Seaplanes transport guests to the island during daylight hours.

Mirihi invites guests to relax in its 38 villas, conveniently spread across the beach and over the water, giving the feeling of being on a private island with direct access to the beach or lagoon. Whether from a private deck or private beach, each villa is the perfect escape from the rest of the world.

Mirihi Island abounds with fun and intriguing things to do and see. Guests can turn their holiday into a fascinating experience of discovery amidst the sheer beauty of nature. Get close to the sea with a fishing trip on the resort’s traditional vessels, the Dhoni, and explore the best spots in Mirihi’s house reef for diving and undersea sights. Or wander the waves together on a yacht, with dinner and sparkling wine. Follow the colours of the sunset, accompanied by leaping dolphins. Back on the island, enjoy a cooking or cocktail class and share some chill-out time with a movie on the beach or stargazing with the Mirihi telescope.

Alternatively, choose from the many excursions, a Sunset Cruise, Snorkelling Safaris, or let the resort’s staff tailor a trip to suit their wishes.
