There is a wide range of options for lodging in the Maldives, so you should be able to find something that suits your needs.

Travelers are starting to return to the Maldives, where they can enjoy the country’s famous beaches, blue lagoons, and reefs. We have included some of the best five-star hotels in the Maldives below.

Reethi Faru

As one would expect from a place whose name means “beautiful reef” in English, Reethi Faru is framed by pristine white beaches, coconut palms, and verdant jungle. The four-star resort has a gorgeous house reef for visitors to explore, along with a soothing ambience, helpful staff, an abundance of facilities, and a delectable menu from which to choose.

The resort on the small island of Filaidhoo in Raa Atoll, Maldives, will include 150 fully equipped individual or semi-individual villas. All of them will be located among tropical greenery or on stilts above the lagoon and designed in a traditional manner to blend well with the natural beauty of the location.

Coco Body Hithi

Coco Bodu Hithi is one of the smaller, but no less luxurious, islands in the Maldives, and it’s located in the North Male Atoll, just 29 kilometers (18 miles) from the capital. The resort, which is owned by four brothers from the area and is part of the Coco Collection, first welcomed guests in 2006.

Whether you’re on the treadmill in the fitness center, relaxing in your villa, or eating at one of the resort’s six restaurants, you’ll always feel like you’re only steps away from the sea at Coco Bodu Hithi. The hotel participates in a monthly coastal cleanup of the island to remove trash from the ocean and protect the reef from further environmental harm.
