About Amari Havodda

Amari Havodda opened in 2016 and is an island hideaway set in Thinadhoo in the Gaafu Atoll region. Offering 120 contemporary beach. pool and water villas plus several restaurants, an outdoor pool and a watersports centre, this beautiful resort has all you need for a relaxing stay in the Maldivian sunshine.

The most beautiful sights await when you arrive at Amari Havodda – powder soft sand, swaying palms and the turquoise lagoon studded with overwater villas.

You can do as little or as much as you like at this island retreat, simply unwind by the pool, keep up your fitness regime at the gym, relax with a good book in the library or explore the stunning clear waters…it’s up to you. The Watersports and Dive Centre offers a good range of motorised and non-motorised activities including waterskiing, jet skiing, guided catamaran sailing and windsurfing. The Dhoni excursions are a great choice too with a highlight being, in our opinion, a sunset cruise with dolphin search.

Of course, the Maldives is an excellent place to scuba dive and explore the coral reefs. If you don’t know how to scuba dive, you can book onto a course and learn how at the PADI dive centre.

There’s also a beach volleyball court, tennis court, spa centre, choice of dining venues and kids club which is fantastic fun for young guests.
