Ultimate guide (September 2019)
is a private island in the South Ari atoll being quite large by the Maldivian standards. Everywhere there is a beautiful and varied beach, giving a complete picture of what the Maldives can be. The bottom is sandy with a comfortable water depth, and there are no breakwaters. To the north there is a long sandspit, so you can walk at low tide to the local Dhigurah island
. Shore and seabed: sand, coral chips.  Find hotels in Dhidhoofinolhu

Hotels  LUX* South Ari Atoll
is a magnificent 5-star resort with rooms' fares starting from US$600 per night. This is a very good price for the true five-star in the Maldives, but all additional services are very expensive - be it food, drinks or tours.
Luxury water bungalows are cleverly located, so that they can rarely be seen from the island, not spoiling great views from the beach. Water villas itself have more privacy, as no one will be looking at you from the coast or accidentally swimming over. Find hotels in Dhidhoofinolhu
