Dhiggiri is an island of about three hectares located in the quiet and fascinating Vaavu atoll, which is 20 minutes by seaplane and 90 minutes by speed boat north of Male.

It can be considered a “niche” atoll that only the great enthusiasts of the Maldives know well for the splendid points of immersion and for its distinctive naturalistic note.

Its low population density and the consequent small number of human settlements, make its astounding natural landscapes, able to conquer the eyes and the heart of those who cross it.
The Dhiggiri Resort offers its guests 34 Over Water, 27 Beach Bungalows and 1 splendid Garden Villa with private garden.

  • Watching nurse sharks, black tipped reef sharks and rays swimming right past the villas and around the shores of the island each day was fantastic. We were even lucky enough to spot a turtle surfacing in the water whilst snorkelling just metres from our room and swim with 10's of nurse sharks on our first shore dive. Overall a wonderful experience

  • Wonderful island!!! Fine white sand, sun, sharks and much more.. My best congratulations to Mahesh for this masterpiece in my fantastic room. I suggest everyone to go there at least once in their life. The resort rooms are very clean, and comfortable. The over water bungalows have two bathrooms (one with shower and one with WC).
