Resort Description

TME Retreats Dhigurah is a luxury beach hotel complete with all modern conveniences.

Designed for privacy and comfort, the hotel is located a little bit away from the village, yet close enough to walk and enjoy the authentic island lifestyle of the Maldives. There's a white sandy beach - more than 3km long - just a few metres from the room

Located on the island of Dhigurah in South Ari Atoll, the resort sits in a popular area of the Maldives for swimming with whale sharks and manta rays and is one of the rare locations where whale shark encounters are possible almost throughout the year.

Explore diving around the TME Retreats Dhigurah

What to see

The Ari Atoll is famous among divers for its volume of pelagic species. It is not uncommon to see manta rays, whale sharks, hammerheads, guitar sharks, turtles, grey reef sharks and eagle rays all within a week’s diving.

While the Ari Atoll may be heaven for big species, it features a good deal of macro life as well. Frogfish, zebra morays, nudibranchs, blueline snappers and hundreds of other colorful fish species reside here.

Wherever you dive in the Ari Atoll, you are sure to be slack-jawed at least once a day by the sheer number of pelagic species you will encounter.
