About Diamonds Athuruga

Diamonds Athuruga is an island paradise; your arrival by seaplane delivers you to a beautiful resort where you’re greeted with swaying palm trees by the white sand and azure blue ocean waters lapping gently at the shore.

Set in the middle of the Ari Atoll, the resort offers stylish and well equipped bungalows and villas, a spa, fantastic diving and snorkelling opportunities and an all inclusive concept with great food and drinks on offer. This is an ideal destination for a romantic or relaxing break.

Although you can choose your days relaxing and taking in the stunning views, there’s plenty to do if you want to at Diamonds Athuruga. Of course, the crystal clear waters and reefs make this a superb location for diving and snorkelling with the IDive Diving Centre on hand to provide courses and tuition should you need it. There are regular guided tours of the reef and complimentary excursions to the local fishermans island.

Water activities include sailing (hobie cat and laser), windsurfing, canoeing, deep sea fishing and you can rent a boat to explore further afield if you wish. Other activities include beach volley, table tennis, pilates, yoga, water gymnastics and stretching. There’s regular in-resort entertainment including live music and themed evenings.

Head to the tranquil Serena Spa for the ultimate experience in relaxation and pampering. Experienced staff offer face and body massages plus beauty treatments.
