Why you'll love this resort...

Whether you're looking for a sanctuary for a romantic escape or a base for family adventures, this all-villa resort offers all the luxury and superb facilities you could desire.

When it comes to a Maldives holiday, you want a peaceful island, pristine beaches, exquisite food, plenty of activities, swimmable waves and amazing service. At The Residence Dhigurah, you get all this and more.

The resort comprises 173 luxe villas, either overwater or on the oceanfront, each with its own terrace and private pool. Inside, a cool colour palette is complemented by deluxe bathroom facilities like indoor and outdoor showers and oversized tubs, plus large windows all the better for surveying your photogenic surrounds through. 

Youngsters from 3 to 12 can spend their holiday adventuring every day at Turtle Kids' Club or in the expert hands of the resort's babysitters, while the grown-ups take to the Spa by Clarins or spend afternoons of leisure at The Beach Club bar or lounging by the pool. While you're poolside, you'll be served complimentary ice lollies and fruit - perfect for cooling off from that Maldivian sun. 

There are bikes and a buggy service available for you to explore the island and a selection of activities to take part in - including complimentary yoga, nature trails, island hopping, parasailing, kayaking and more. We particularly recommend the Castaway Island picnic experience for a proper taste of this Indian Ocean paradise.
