MADOOGALI unspoilt and "Natural Chic"

48 miles west of Male lies the magic atoll of Ari.
A uniquely untouched paradise, available to those few special people who look for nature in all her richest glory.

Beautiful Madoogali is almost entirely wrapped in lush tropical vegetation; coconut palm, Banyan trees and Bougainvillaeas colour and perfume the islands interior, whilst clear turquoise seas kiss the soft white coral sand beaches. A few meters from the waters edge is another of nature wonderlands; an underwater garden of living coral, where colour has texture, fresh from the artists palette.

And for people preferring to stay on the island, they can relax on the beautiful white sandy beaches, make a walk through the exuberant palm grove or enjoy a ping-pong match, badminton, beach-volley and bowling.

If fishing is your passion, then Madoogali will really excite you with the possibility of catching marlin, barracuda, sail fish and kingfish; while lovers of snorkelling will find in the warm clear waters a kaleidoscope of fishes and coral gardens to enthral them. Once a week a dhooni will bring you to a fisherman Island to discover the local way of live, hospitality and courtesy of local poeple. And for who desire a more intensive contact with nature, the desert island of Vihamaafaru could be reserved for exclusive use for a full day.


The most refined Italian management typifies the island restaurant, like the rest of the resort.

Our chef prepares grilled local fish and a lavish variety of pasta and pizza dishes as well as traditional Maldivian recipes for you to savour.

After dinner, warm tropical evenings can be shared with friends, beneath diamond studded skies, or enlivened by the rhythm of local music and dancing.

Residence on the island is limited to 56 exclusive palm thatched chalets, designed to blend in unobtrusively with the natural environment and vegetation.
