Best for: Diverse dining options
Just like its name, Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa is a shining gem in the Indian Ocean. This five-star deluxe all-inclusive resort is a proud member of The Leading Hotels of the World and offers guests exclusive access to its private 20 hectares of island including 1.5km of soft white sandy beach. Lining the beach are a collection of villas designed for couples and families – some with private hot tubs and swimming pools. Stretching into the ocean, the accommodation moves from sand to stilts and popular Water Villas with personal pools take centre stage. All villas offer modern amenities with large bathrooms boasting a shower and stand-alone tub as well as ‘sink-into’ beds and spacious living areas.
But let’s talk about its deluxe all-inclusive offering. Emerald Maldives benefits from six restaurants and cafés, all of which are included within the dining plan. Aqua Restaurant is the heart of the resort and provides worldwide cuisine in a buffet style complete with live cooking stations. For beachside lunch and dinner, Beach Club Grill is where you want to be. Expect a menu of fresh seafood and meat that’s grilled to perfection or try the pizza and pasta station for quick bites on the sand. Amazónico provides the sensual flavours of Central and South America in an open-air setting while Le Asiatique serves an Asian feast and even has a Teppanyaki grill and live cooking shows.
Located in the Raa Atoll, in the northern part of the Maldives archipelago, getting here is via a 40-minute seaplane flight from Malé Airport or a domestic flight to Ifuru Domestic Airport followed by a 15-minute speedboat transfer.
Best for: All-round all-inclusive
If you’re on the hunt for an all-inclusive Maldives resort that extends further than just food and beverage inclusions, then call off the search. Lily Beach Resort at Huvahendhoo Maldives is exactly what you have been looking for. The five-star hotel’s Platinum Plan provides a hassle-free way to holiday in the Maldives… and it’s exceptional value for money. Upon arrival you’ll enjoy complimentary meet and assist at the airport followed by VIP lounge access at the Trans Maldivian Airways seaplane terminal. Next up, it’s dining.

Á la carte lunches are also available at AQVA and Vibes bar and all beverages are included within your stay, from soft drinks and coffees through to premium spirits and French Champagne.
Of course, the usual free WiFi and complimentary access to the Kids’ Club is available throughout, but what makes Lily Beach Resort stand out is its complimentary excursions. You receive a whopping three trips included with your stay! Choose between a coral garden snorkelling adventure, a fishing trip, sunset cruise and a day to the local fishing village in Dangethi.
Best for: Affordable Maldives
Striking sunsets, silky soft sands and a serene spa… paradise awaits at OBLU by Atmosphere at Helengeli Maldives. This four-star all-inclusive resort provides an affordable way to enjoy paradise. Choose between a beach or overwater villa, and for families who want additional space and privacy, there’s a two-bedroom beach option complete with private pool.

Best for: A remote island getaway
What do you get when you mix barefoot luxury with hassle-free all-inclusive and sprinkle it on two remote islands in the Maldives? OBLU SELECT at Sangeli. Here you have a wealth of activities, excursions, food and beverage options at your fingertips. And the best part? It’s all complimentary!
Just like sister resort OBLU by Atmosphere at Helengeli Maldives, the all-inclusive plan includes meals, non-motorised water sports and one of two experiences. Plus, depending on the length of your stay, at least one spa treatment for all aged 15-years-old and above. But what makes this hotel stand out is its access to a totally private adults-only island; One Banyan Island. Home to a large swimming pool and edged by a gorgeous white sand beach, it’s the perfect spot for honeymooning couples to enjoy some serenity or for parents to relax knowing their children are having a ball under professional supervision at the kid’s club.
Best for: Underwater Restaurant
We hope you’re hungry! Ozen Life Madhoo is a five-star luxury resort that boasts a whopping six restaurants, all included in your stay. All-day dining is available in The Palms where live cooking stations and traditional entertainment will make sure every meal is one to remember. Joie De Virve is the resort’s poolside kitchen, open from 11am until 9pm and offers a menu of refreshing salads and pizzas that are made to order. For sushi platters, smoothies and healthy cuisine, try R.A.W or opt for South Asian dishes at Traditions Indoceylon and authentic Chinese fare at Traditions Peking. However, for a dining experience that is native to this corner of the world, visit Minus Six Metres an underwater restaurant. Dine on caviar and champagne while shoals of colourful fish glide past and if you’re lucky, you may even spot a ray or turtle. Trust us, date night doesn’t get more special than this.
Alongside the never-ending list of exciting dining options, Ozen Life Maadhoo also boasts 94 private villas across 5 different categories. From Beach Villas to those propped up on stilts overlooking the turquoise lagoon, whichever villa you book promises serene island views and all the facilities you could possibly need.

Featuring six overwater treatment rooms, all with glass bottom floors, you can gaze at the underwater world while a skilled therapist tends to any knots and tensions in your back – bliss! Also at your service is a fully equipped gymnasium, a salt alongside steam and sauna facilities.
Best for: Summer all year round
Hello paradise! Finolhu lies in the Baa Atoll, one of 26 natural atolls in the Indian Ocean and thanks to its fantastic geographical location it claims to enjoy summer all year round. Surrounded by reefs, submerged cliffs and ‘thilas’ – small round underwater hills – the calm waters provide the ideal habitat for an estimated 1200 reef species. It’s obvious why the Baa Atoll has been declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. But what isn’t so clear is that due to its location, the island benefits from a tropical climate. The average temperate is 29 degrees while the waters stay warm at 24 degrees all year round. So don’t forget to pack your SPF or your swimwear.
Finolhu has bundles of personality – where else can you sleep under the stars in a bubble tent mere steps from the ocean? And this individuality stretches to its dining options. With four restaurants to choose from your biggest dilemma on this trip is where to visit first. We recommend a gourmet lunch at Crab Shack followed by bubbles at the Beach Club and then dinner at Asian fine dining restaurant Kanusan. Be sure to nab a spot on the veranda to watch the sun set and then under the twinkling sky you can stare at the stars reflecting off the still water.
Best for: Large families
Also within the tranquil Baa Atoll is Vakkaru Maldives, a secluded reef island blessed with timeless ocean views, powder-soft sandy beach and an expansive collection of villas and residences. The 113 accommodation options include Beach Villa with Plunge Pool, Over Water Pool Villa and Over Water Family Pool Villa to name just a few of the deluxe options. Each offers fresh white linens, a calming colour palette and immense privacy. However, for the ultimate accommodation choice, be sure to check-in to one of the residences. Designed to accommodate a variety of family sizes up to eight adults or four adults and four children, expect space by the bucket load and every home comfort you could possibly desire. Vakkaru’s all-inclusive option is similar to many other resorts. It encompasses all meals and beverages throughout your stay across the five restaurants, two bars and famous wine cellar… so be sure to pack your appetite.
Best for: Adults-Only
Komandoo Maldives is where adults can truly unwind. Honeymooning couples looking for an all-inclusive slice of paradise, parents enjoying some much-needed time away from the little ones… we’re looking at you! All guests at Komandoo Maldives must be strictly over-18, so you can rest assured that your holiday will be without cries of “mum” and “dad!”. Your private villa is either located on the island’s private beach or perched on stilts above the turquoise lagoon and many options offer the benefit of a personal Jacuzzi. For the foodies among you, there are two restaurants, one á la carte and one buffet-style, as well as two scenic bars for you to indulge in. This island resort is also well placed for waterbabies; there are more than 50 dive sites nearby that are awaiting you to explore, so don your fins and delve into the deep.
