One of the Maldives’ newest resorts (opened in June 2017), Dhigali Maldives – Raa Atoll sits in the remote Raa Atoll but can be reached by a scenic seaplane journey of just 45 minutes. Excellent hospitality and cool modern design features are highlights here, but in this less-developed atoll you can also gain a real sense of local culture.

With a minimalist, modern vibe, Dhigali has done away with the traditional Maldivian thatched style of architecture and has instead introduced contemporary, box-like villas with flat white roofs and pared-down interiors. Around the resort, the décor is simple and comfortable, with bright splashes of colour in everything from the multicoloured cushions in the restaurant to the orange towels by the pool, and quirky additions including curved chandeliers that swing in the breeze and a collection of Instagram-perfect swings.

There’s a house reef in swimming distance on one side of the island and a lagoon on the other side for watersports, plus a stunning sandbank at the tip of the island.

Dining is innovative and authentic, with the style and atmosphere of each restaurant reflecting the cuisine. There’s a particular focus on fresh Asian dishes, including the specialist Asian restaurant, BattutaCapers is the main restaurant, and there’s also the upscale Deli, all-day dining at Jade, and freshly grilled meats and fish at Faru. At sunset, make your way to the upper level of Haali (the sunset bar) with a cocktail in hand.


Dhigali Maldives is a perfect blend of simplicity and luxurious comforts. A wide range of villas and suites set between lush gardens and turquoise sea views at this Maldives beach resort provide absolute tranquillity.

Rooms have a minimalist and neutral décor, with warm tones of browns and creams, modern furnishings and plush natural fabrics.
