Dhigali brings a modern minimalist design to a wonderfully remote part of the Maldives.

One of the Maldives' newest resorts (opened in June 2017), Dhigali sits in the remote Raa Atoll but can be reached by a short domestic flight and boat ride from Malé airport or, for a supplement, a scenic seaplane journey of just 45 minutes. Excellent hospitality and cool modern design features are highlights here, but in this less-developed atoll you can also gain a real sense of local culture.

There’s a house reef in swimming distance on one side of the island and a lagoon on the other side for watersports, plus a stunning sandbank at the tip of the island. Dining is innovative and authentic, with the style and atmosphere of each restaurant reflecting the cuisine. There’s a particular focus on fresh Asian dishes, including the specialist Asian restaurant, Battuta. Capers is the main restaurant, and there's also the upscale Deli, all-day dining at Jade, and freshly grilled meats and fish at Faru. At sunset, make your way to the upper level of Haali (the sunset bar) with a cocktail in hand.

Rooms have a minimalist and neutral décor, with warm tones of browns and creams, modern furnishings and plush natural fabrics. The vast choice here includes Beach Bungalows that are just steps from the shore, Beach Villas with Pool, overwater Water Villas that sit on stilts close to the colourful house reef, and Lagoon Villas with Pool that have views across the calm lagoon.
