This island is one of those ‘less heard of’ places. Moreso because it only has 36 villas and it is often full and hard to get a room at unless you book early. Weâ€™ve not been yet ourselves but would jump at the chance to see this legendary island with its sensational house reef. Also, it has been near the top of the reviews for years. Note that Mirihi is not all inclusive and if price or budget is an issue, it might be another island you are looking for. You are paying in part to be one of the few that get to enjoy this slice of paradise. BUT – this desirable island is worthy of every penny.
Mirihi Island Resort is located on a secluded tropical island in the South Ari Atoll, approximately 85 kilometres south of the capital Male. A picturesque and breathtaking 30 minute seaplane ride from Male will bring you here.
Mirihi has just 36 villas on the island each with air conditioning, ceiling fan, sitting area with CD stereo system and fully stocked minibar, Coffee and Espresso maker, IDD telephone, personal safe and free WiFi
Beach Villas (53sqm) are spread over the island and there are just 6 of them. All Villas are equally designed, featuring designer furnishing, polished wooden floors, king size or twin beds. The Beach Villas offer an oversized open-air bathroom with a luxurious fresh water shower as well as direct access to the beach.
Water Villas (53sqm) Mirihi has 30 tastefully appointed Water Villas that are built on stilts over the blue lagoon, each featuring designer furnishing, polished wooden floors, king size or twin beds.
