The villas of the Anantara Dhigu Resort Hotel & Spa in the heart of the Maldives archipelago are spread out along the beaches of the small island of Dhigufinolhu. This luxury establishment is daringly minimalist, plunging guests into a wonderfully intimate universe. The 110 sober, elegant and spacious rooms decorated with precious wood, possess every possible modern comfort. Connected by a private access to the beach or mounted on stilts above the waters of the lagoon, the villas celebrate the beauty of the landscape, casting a veil of romance over this gentle Maldive island. From the spa salons to the restaurant, the Anantara Dhigu Resort & Spa pays tribute to the curative and culinary virtues of Maldivian culture. To prolong this gentle journey, a cruise on the crystalline waters of the Indian Ocean is highly recommended.


The Maldives, in the heart of the Indian Ocean, is one of those tourist destinations people dream about and with good reason too. Its landscapes are the stuff of which picture postcards are made. Consisting of several thousand small islands, the Maldives archipelago welcomes a huge number of tourists who come to enjoy its luxury hotels and its idyllic beaches. However, for those who are more curious and want to learn about Maldivian history and culture, Malé, the archipelago’s capital is the place to go. Located on the island of the same name, it’s the country’s most populated city and its economic center. Strolling through it enables visitors to discover the city’s typical Maldivian architecture, so different from that of the hotel complexes that one finds on the surrounding islands, and other very interesting sites, culturally speaking, like Sultan’s Park, which serves as a botanic garden, and which contains the National Museum and the Islamic Center with its superb golden dome. A visit to the fish market is a perfect opportunity to become involved in local life. The majority of seaplanes leave from Malé, taking tourists to their hotels and allowing them to see some of the country as soon as they arrive. It all begins with Malé.

Forget about your clothing!

Located on the island of Dhigufinolhu in the South Malé, atoll of the Anantra Dhigu Resort & Spa will delight both families seeking to spend a few days of peace and tranquility, and couples or newlyweds in search of relaxation and total privacy. The hotel’s 110 villas and suites are all worthy of the complex’s five-star status. They are all in wood and decorated with simplicity and gaiety, so that each guest feels at home and is assured of every possible modern comfort. The bathrooms are spacious with outdoor bathtubs and showers. The villas in the west of the island have a panoramic and romantic view of the sunrises and sunsets, while the others have a private pool for swimming and sunbathing in total tranquility. They also have direct access to the beach, although the most fortunate guests will opt for a villa on stilts with direct access to the warm, crystalline waters of the lagoon.

Those interested in discovering the local marine depths can procure scuba or deep-sea diving equipment in order to pierce the mysteries of underwater life. Jet skiing, kayaking, tennis and yoga sessions are available for more active guests. Others can take advantage of the spa for relaxing massages and treatments while enjoying the view of the ocean.

For the romantically minded, a cruise on a private boat with its own captain makes for an unforgettable moment, especially if you’re lucky enough to come across dolphins. Children receive high quality care, enabling them to discover the island’s treasures and have fun at the same time. Several restaurants are available to guests, who can also go the neighboring island easily, and take advantage of the facilities of the Anantara Veli Resort which belongs to the same hotel group.

It’s fascinating to watch the hotel employees in charge of gathering the coconuts off the palm trees. Using a simple cord tied to their feet, they climb to the top of a tree at a height of ten meters in a matter of seconds.
