Five star resort comforts for the ultimate Maldives getaway.
Explore the lagoon together while relaxing in your water villa. Set sail with your very own captain and find a deserted tropical island. Challenge each other to beach games on some of the world’s most beautiful sands. Anantara Dhigu Maldives five star resort invites you to write your own chapter of world class adventure.
Step into the air-conditioned comfort of our fitness centre, and exercise alone or with a personal trainer. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide an inspiring view as you run, step or lift.
Water Skiing, Wake & Kneeboarding
Rip through the waves with some help from our twins, WET and WILD. This pair of Gulfcraft Swan 20 speedboats will propel you swiftly across the lagoon with their powerful 150-horsepower engines.
Windsurfing & Kitesurfing
Windsurfing combines elements of surfing and sailing for the perfect match of energy and tranquillity, while kitesurfing provides the opportunity for daredevil jumps and turns.
Paddleboarding & Kayaking
Stand-up paddleboards and glass-bottomed kayaks provide the perfect way to explore our calm lagoon. No experience is required, and these easy workouts are great for muscle tone and core strength.
Cruise alongside majestic dolphins as they leap into the mist-filled air. We are lucky enough to have a large pod of spinner dolphins – the most acrobatic variety – living right on our doorstep.
With the help of our guides – and a little luck – the bounty of the Indian Ocean can be yours. Go to battle with a magnificent sailfish, wahoo, tuna, mahi mahi or giant trevally. Try your hand at traditional Maldivian line-fishing, heading out at sunset on a dhoni. Choose from a variety of techniques, such as jigging, popping, trolling or casting.
Gulhifushi Picnic and Snorkelling Island
Kayak or take a boat to our private picnic island, Gulhifushi. If you wish, your family can spend the whole day swimming, snorkelling, kite flying, playing beach games and finishing up with a barbecue on the beach.
Enjoy refreshing cocktails and light snacks at Tiki Bar 10.00 am – 5.30 pm.
Explore the turquoise lagoon and the colourful reef life surrounding the resort. From August to December, seize the opportunity to dance with manta rays. Whale sharks play year-round near Ari Atoll, and come very close to the surface.

For enthusiasts with no prior diving experience, Discover scuba diving (DSD) entails a basic introduction to diving, with theory, shallow water training in the lagoon, and a dive of up to 12 m around our dive site.
