Featuring 30 water villas and only 6 beach villas, the Mirihi Island Resort is one of the smallest private-island resorts in the Maldives. The rooms are smaller than most, and there are no TVs, but everything is of high 4-star standards, and its intimate setting makes it perfect for a honeymoon or other romantic getaway. Considering the quality and service here, this affordable resort is one of the best values in the Maldives.
The diving and snorkeling opportunities here are magnificent, and the setting is gorgeous. The fact that there are almost no family facilities here means that it's more or less an adults-only hotel, which should appeal to many romantic couples on a tropical island retreat.
The Mirihi Island Resort is located on a private tropical island in the South Ari Atoll, approximately 85 kilometres south of the capital Male

To reach the Mirihi Island Resort 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 30-minute flight to Mirihi Island and the hotel itself.
Reviews for the Mirihi Island Resort are amazingly positive, which is all the more impressive since this is one of the more affordable overwater villa resorts in the Maldives. The small private-island setting and the diving and snorkeling at the house reef receive great praise, as does the quality of the rooms and the service and the food.
This resort is certainly not for everybody, as it’s quite small, there is basically no nightlife, and almost no facilities for children. But those things also make it perfect for a honeymoon or anniversary trip, especially those without unlimited financial resources.
