“Great little island.”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

Lovely little island, it is the maldives afterall. I would recommend it here, it is all inc so you know there will be constant amounts of food (it is italian run so always pizza, well worth it after a dive). The food is otherwise OK, lots of fish, curries or italian. Diving is good too, white tips, black tips, mantas, nurse sharks, eagle rays... the lot!

Do a night dive also, it is wicked.

It is just such a chilled location, if small but you come to the maldives for the island feel and you definitiely get that. Will we be back? Maybe, but it is a great benchmark to compare some of the other islands.

You will have to get the seaplane, which although expensive is a great experience!

Dhiggiri is well worth a visit if you're looking for a small all inclusive setup resort.
The island isn't big and the setup is luxurious, basic and yet comfortable.
We did 2 snorkeling trips to manta point. They can't guarantee that you will actually see the animals. We were lucky enough to see 4 on the first trip and about 14 on the second trip.
This trip is well worth going. It's just 20 dollars per person and only 20 to 30 minutes by boat. The local guide knows how to spot the manta's when you're in the water. Just pay attention to him.

Cons:
Our mattress felt kinda stiff and hard, but you get used to it.
The friendly staff can't always speak English since it is owned and ran by Italians. There are mainly Italian guest. Even the local personnel speaks better Italian then English.

Writing this review from the Maldives airport after such a wonderful honeymoon. Spent 5 days at Dhiggiri and pretty much same feedback as everyone else.

Snorkelling is wonderful as you dont have to swim very far out to see the sealife. Saw turtles, mantas, stingray, sharks and so many kinds of colorful fish. The fishfeeding was really interesting seeing 3 meter jackfish...

The staff was great.. always smiling and willing to help. It is pretty much an italian resort but most staff (including the local staff) speak English.

Don't expect a 5star buffet spread but the food was on the good side. Always a meat and fish main with curries, pasta, salads and soup available. The alcohol though was on the "cheap" side - not very good so don't get your hopes high on maximiznig the all-inclusive. There is only so much cheap wine/bear/liquor one can drink.

We stayed in the water bungalows giving us direct access to the sea to snorkel. Would recommend those staying in the water bungalows to get rooms 1-5 as this are over water where as the rest are not during low-tide.

Italian animation, my wife speaks Italian and I don't care much about animation. My wife loved Erika's aquagym, legs, abs and buttock exercises, etc. Most staff speak good English and Neva also speaks excellent German, so it is not a problem for non-Italian speakers, provided you dont expect to be the center of social life, which of course is mainly Italian. The food is excellent, if simple, home style curries, fish and meat dishes.

Arranging the transfer from Male airport was difficult and took ten emails and numerous phone calls. I would recomment skipping the Italian travel agency that owns Dhiggiri and booking the airport transfer directly with Maldivian Air Taxi, or alternatively booking the Italian package directly (just search Dhiggiri in google) and flying from Rome.

The bungalows are beautiful and cleaned twice a day - there might be the occasional ant, but nothing major. Snorkling is good, we saw numerous rays, sharks, seaturtles every kind of colourful fish imaginable, an awesome experience, not further away than thehouse reef. Staff is jovial, but will leave you alone if you just want to relax. "Local staff" always smiling and friendly. Check out the photos on tripadvisor, it really is that nice! We did not regret booking here and would definitely come again.

Internet 7 USD per 14 minutes
There is cell phone reception, so you can send sms or make a phone call from your own phone
Water 4.50 USD per 1.5 liter bottle (we only bought one bottle in 8 days, as water is for free in the restaurant and at the bar)
Snorkling equipment for rent for 30 USD per week
Snorkling trips: 90 USD for 6 trips. Don't miss the night snorkling with sharks and rays, its fantastic!
Decent cocktails all inclusive. White wine is atrocious, but they serve mineral water to shpritz it .Do not come here for the free wine or you will be disappoint...Free beer is OK

We stayed at this resort in May2006 for our Honeymoon and it was fantastic.
The service was impeccable and the activities were just right(Diving, snorkelling, catermarans).
We would go back in a heartbeat when we have the chance and we would recommend this island to any couple wanting a relaxing holiday away from everything.
A real Robinson Crusoe experience.
