Best All-Inclusive Resorts
CNN has recently featured Lily Beach Resort & Spa in the 11th position among the ‘Best All-Inclusive’ resorts in the world.

CNN has recently featured Lily Beach Resort & Spa among the ‘Best All-Inclusive’ resorts in the world, which further cements their position as a leader of luxury All-Inclusive resort experience in the Maldives. The list is derived from TripAdvisor’s Top 25 All-Inclusive Resorts in the World 2020, which places the 5-star resort in the 11th position.

In the list, CNN regarded Lily Beach Resort & Spa as the perfect option for a ‘quintessential Maldives experience’. Likewise, the list highlighted that the luxury all-inclusive resort provides access to more than 50 diving sites as its located in a prime location in South Ari Atoll in the Maldives.

Lily Beach Resort & Spa has always had a good reputation when it came to providing a great all-inclusive experience based on the all-inclusive meal plan that was made popular in the world by Club Med. It consists of all meals being accounted for, great lodging, no surprise overcharged invoice at the end of the stay, some activities and excursions included in the plan, and most importantly having great tasting food and drinks. It’s not rocket science but Lily Beach has got their all-inclusive offering and experience down to a T- all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor stand as a testament to this.

Lily Beach secured 1st place in TripAdvisor’s Best All-Inclusive Resorts in Asia for 3 constructive years. The Traveler’s Choice Awards are based on the millions of reviews and opinions collected from TripAdvisor travellers worldwide.

The island retreat pioneered Maldives’ all-inclusive concept in 1994. Afterwards, the resort underwent an extensive renovation and reopened in 2009 as a luxury resort. Hence, the unique, pioneering concept of “Affordable Luxury”, the first 5-star All-Inclusive Platinum Plan Resort in the Maldives was born.

With the overall concept of ‘Affordable Luxury’ in mind, Lily Beach’s ‘Platinum Plan’ is a Premium All-Inclusive Plan, offering tourists an absolute value-for-money and a hassle-free vacation. In addition to that, the platinum plan offers a fantastic array of exclusive experiences from fine dining, dreamy excursions, and sports activities, to high-quality products like premium wines and spirits- this puts their plan apart from other contenders. Moreover, the only meal plan available at the resort is the Platinum plan, which shows that the resort management is all-in with the all-inclusive concept.

This has allowed Lily Beach Resort & Spa to succeed the likes of international brands (such as Club Med in the Maldives) and other local brands in the Maldives offering similar all-inclusive plans.

Consistently reinventing itself and pushing ahead further than the competition gained the local owner-operator, Lily Hotels an upper hand. Moreover, as a winner of multiple awards and recognitions throughout the years, Lily Beach Resort & Spa continuously proved itself as the best all-inclusive resort in the region and among the best in the world.

The two practitioners, Mr Sandeep Dhamada and Ms Krishna Karki, are some of Ananda’s most accomplished and expert holistic therapists. As a follow-up to these speciality treatments, The Nautilus guests will also benefit from an online consultation with an Ayurvedic physician. This will further enhance the holistic benefits of the treatments in addition to the overall experience. Ananda’s gourmet Ayurvedic cuisine is available to consume anywhere on the island, incorporating anti-inflammatory properties, with fundamental food tastes carefully combined with macronutrients.

Ananda in the Himalayas is one of the world’s leading luxury wellness retreats, aligning with the rejuvenating spirit of The Nautilus. Nestled in the Himalayan foothills, the birthplace of Ayurveda, Yoga and meditation, Ananda integrates these ancient practices with therapy. The partnership first launched in 2022 and this year’s iteration enhances the already extensive wellness offering with a series of curated experiences for guests looking to rebalance their body, soul and mind.

Specialty Treatments Offered by Ananda at The Nautilus:

  • Ananda Touch with Reflexology (90 Mins)- A rhythmic flowing massage with rose-scented oils. The treatment releases tension and stress combined with the stimulation of reflex points. This practice aims to restore energy flow throughout the entire body and foster balance within the body and mind.
  • Indian Head Massage with Reflexology (90 Mins)– This ancient experience relaxes, tones, and eases muscle tension. It also aids in eliminating toxins by stimulating circulation. Following this, a massage is administered to the feet, applying pressure on the soles to restore healthy energy flow throughout the body.

We massage pure organic honey harvested from the Himalayas into the skin and apply a mask of cooling cucumber. As the mask hydrates your skin, indulge in a soothing foot massage that stimulates reflex points.
