Honeymoon in paradise
We stayed at Dhigali as part of our honeymoon in January 2020. It was our first time visiting the Maldives and we were not dissapointed. I imagine most of the resorts are just ast beautiful and offer similar accomodation. We chose Dhigali as it was a relatively new resort and had lots of restaurant options which were inlcuded in the all inclusive package. The transfer from the airport to the island was seamless and stress free and we loved our experience of a seaplane. Dhigali was everything we wanted from a resort; beautiful, stylish, good food and friendly staff. It had a nice laid back feel and our over water villa offered a good amount of privacy.
This was a once in a lifetime trip for us since we took a long haul flight from the NYC and it was well worth the long journey. The island is simply stunning. I couldn't get enough of the beautiful clear water and views. The hotel rooms were modern and spacious. We stayed in bungalow over the water which was great because we saw the beautiful fish each morning off our balcony or on our way to breakfast. While there aren't many restaurant, which was a nice thing not to be at a mega resort, they offered enough diversity to keep us happy. The food is delicious, an international mix with emphasis on the local culture, and the service excellent with a smile. We enjoyed walks around the island, snorkeling multiple times a day, beautiful lagoon swims, gorgeous sunsets, romantic sets by musicians, a lovely spa day and so much more! This hotel is perfect for honeymooners and even trips with young children. It is a quiet resort with not a lot of action which is perfect to get away and unwind.
My husband and I spent 5 nights in Dhigali following a trip travelling around Sri Lanka. We booked through Luxtripper and it was a special holiday to celebrate my 60th birthday. This was our first trip to the Maldives and I had always longed to go. It was a complete dream come true and we were so lucky to enjoy a blissful stay before travel became impossible. I absolutely loved the quick journey by sea plane from Male to Dhigali with fabulous views over the ocean and islands. There was a warm greeting at the gorgeous jetty and we were transported to our water villa, close to the main amenities, in one of the golf style carts which circle the island. Villa was perfect, spacious, comfortable, light and airy with a stunning view of the ocean. Great shower in the bathroom. Stylish bath too but we never got to use it. At night time the walk way to the villas was lit up with tiny lights, very atmospheric. The island was quiet whilst we were there in early April, probably due to the concerns about Coronavirus and we had absolutely no trouble booking to eat in the restaurants which were all very stylish. Staff were a delight and there was a good selection of food. We were dining on the premium all inclusive and were delighted to find that the excellent Babic Sauvignon Blanc, Forbidden Vines, was included in the offer. There was a great choice of cocktails and drinks, you really couldn’t wish for more. We loved the modern design of the resort, cool and elegant. I wouldn’t fault a single thing. The sunsets were so romantic, sitting on the beach and serenaded by saxophone as the sun went down and we sipped our cocktails. Staff were an absolute delight, always smiling and happy to please. I will always remember Dhigali and our trip to the Maldives as a really blissful experience and I wish all of the staff who were working there the very best for the future. I know the resort is currently closed but hope all will be resolved and holiday makers can once again enjoy this sublime resort.
We have made this beautiful island our yearly family holiday now after just two visits. The staff and ALL amazing and go out of their way to make it as special as possible. We stay for 2 weeks and there is enough to do if you want to be active too. The food is some of the best I we have ever eaten. Battuta is our all time favourite place to eat. A real gem. Recommended for couples or families, we have a 20 year old son who loves it just as much as us.
