Located on one of the smallest islands in the Maldives, the 37-villa Mirihi Island Resort has a personal feel, yet is stocked full of the luxe and convenient features you'd expect from any large luxury resort. From a beach cinema to a spa, free non-motorized water sports to a teeming house reef with its own shipwreck, and tons of events, excursions, and on-island activities, there are plenty of alternatives to just lying on the soft sand beach. This small but casually luxe spot is ideal for couples and small groups looking for top-notch dishes and impressive selection of wines and over 40 dive sites in a relaxing environment. All-inclusive options are available.


Outside of your standard expected features from a luxury property, all 37 villas at Mirihi have high-quality designer decor and furniture, polished wooden floors, BOSE sound systems, Nespresso machines, fresh fruit baskets, and fully stocked minibars and snack areas. There are also nice touches like wine glasses and bottle openers, kettles, flashlights, rain umbrellas, and personalized name cards on the front doors.


More space, more light, more privacy. The brand-new 2-bedroom Overwater Suite (160sqm) has its own jetty and offers the ultimate over-water living experience on Mirihi, as it is situated directly over one of the most beautiful parts of our truly amazing house reef. The Suite consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious living area & outside deck and is therefore ideal for families or a group of friends. For its other high quality features, please look at our Water Villas.

Aside from the sprawling ocean views off Mirihi's soft-sand beaches, the resort also has a slew of ways to experience the surrounding sea. Guests can visit over 40 dive sites (including a trip to the house reef's own shipwreck site) with the multi-lingual team from the island's Ocean Pro Dive Center. Dives include drift dives, night dives, and shark dives, with a choice between air or nitrox diving, and beginners can take PADI certification courses. Day and night snorkeling tours are also available, and thanks to the island's location, snorkelers and divers have year-round possibilities to spot whale sharks. Other excursions include trips to nearby picnic islands, fishing trips, swimming with Manta Rays, or private boat charters. Mirihi also gives guests free-use of it's windsurf gear, kayaks, and snorkel equipment. There are no motorized water sports on the island in order to avoid damage to the house reef that is teeming with eagle rays, baby reef sharks, and colorful fish.


Diving is an absolute must for many of our guests and our Ocean Pro Divecenter can cater for all levels of divers, from first-timers who want to learn the basics, to the experienced diver wanting to fine-tune their technique. With over 40 diving sites and a multilingual team, every guest is assured a most personal service. Mirihi is also in the unique position of having the possibility of spotting whale sharks the whole year through and offers regular trips for divers and snorkelers.


If you yearn for relaxation, visit our Duniye Spa. Trained therapists know how to relieve the stress from your body and relax your muscles. Enter the special atmosphere of the Spa and get pampered in one of the two treatment rooms for couples.


With one of the best house reefs in the country, discovering the reef by snorkeling is simply a must on Mirihi. For years, we have been taking the snorkeling experience to a new level: Discover the house reef by night, snorkel with whale sharks and mantas and explore the Atoll. On Mirihi, you don’t have to be a diver to discover the magic of the Maldives at its very best.


Did you ever dream of escaping to a small tropical island? Here this dream can become reality when we send you to a deserted island close by. Alternatively, choose from the many excursions, such as Island Hopping, a visit to a local Cultural Island, a Sunset Cruise, Snorkeling Safaris, or let us tailor a trip to suit your wishes.
