Resort Description

Hurawalhi Island Resort is located within the stunning Lhaviyani Atoll in the Maldives. Providing an idyllic mix of excitement, romance and luxury, a vacation to Hurawalhi Island will take your breath away. You can spend days poring over beautiful images of Maldivian islands online, but nothing will truly prepare you for the wondrous blend of barefoot bliss and contemporary design found at Hurawalhi. With 90 villas offering 7 crisp and stylish accommodation types, you are sure to find the perfect setting to bring your dreams to life!

The island is home to 3 marvellous restaurants and bars, including the 5.8 Undersea Restaurant offering fine dining amongst schools of reef fish. If a pre-dinner drink is what you desire, then the Champagne Pavilion offers a flawless setting to watch dolphins and mantas leap from the ocean as the sun sets. While you are forever welcome to spend your days and nights doing nothing but enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and tropical scenery, there is a plethora of land and water activities available to suit all preferences and experience levels. The diving around the house reef and nearby dive sites is next to none when it comes to large marine life. When you’re not diving, eating or relaxing, the games room, sports ground, spa, marine biology center, fitness center, photography sessions and diversity of excursions will no doubt leave you informed, inspired and entertained.

Explore diving around the Hurawalhi Island Resort

What to see

Amongst the caves and overhangs you’ll see different species of moray eel, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, and orange, nocturnal soldier fish with big, black eyes. They can be seen swimming upside down in the dark overhangs.

The soft corals are colorful, and some of the hard corals look like a French horn's bell. Expect reef sharks, turtles and rays, but the wet season is more favorable for manta sightings.

As with most of the Maldives – the variety of marine life in Lhaviyani will keep you busy. Add a shipwreck to your experience, and you might need a spare pencil to complete your dive logs.
