What the reviews say

Reviews of the Lily Beach Resort And Spa are generally very positive, especially for those who stayed in the water villas. Those who stayed in the lagoon villas seem a bit less impressed, and those who stayed in the beach villas even less so, though relatively speaking this is still a very popular resort with many return visitors. The key, it seems, is to spring for a water villa for the best impression.

Considering this is an all-inclusive resort with several different restaurants and bars, the reviews for the food are quite good, even though the selection is large. Generally speaking, when there is a large amount of dish choices available, there tends to be a few guests who feel that each dish is lacking, but not here. The house reef and water sports get very high grades as well, so this appears to be an ideal resort for those looking for an all-inclusive in particular.

Getting there

To reach the Lily Beach Resort and Spa you’ll first fly to Malé International Airport. From there you’ll be greeted by resort staff and helped aboard a sea plane for the 25-minute flight to Fesdu Island and the hotel itself.
