Experience contemporary luxury whilst engaging with the magnificent underwater medley of the Maldives. Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort elevates its standing as a sought-after tropical hideaway with the unveiling of the newly re-imagined Over Water Suites.


Set across 20,000 square metres of tropical paradise encompassed by Maldivian blue lagoons, Anantara Dhigu comprises 110 deluxe villas and suites on a secluded island in the South Male Atoll. The island is reached from the airport by either a picturesque 35-minute speedboat ride or a memorable seaplane journey over the crystal-clear waters.


Enhanced Luxury in a Tropical Paradise

Boutique interior design firm, The Beaumont Partnership, has redesigned the 132 square metre Over Water Suites to enhance the space available whilst complementing local tradition and heritage. From the natural rattan decorative panels and Italian ceramic tiling to the custom outdoor lanterns, every detail has been considered for the pleasure and convenience of Anantara guests. Travellers are offered the opportunity to choose between Sunset Over Water Suites, Sunrise Over Water Suites or Over Water Pool Suites to tailor their holiday escape to their preference.


Inspiring Light by Day or Night

Natural light abounds in each of the suite types, with floor-to-ceiling windows allowing the vast expanse of dazzling turquoise sea to be admired from the comfort of the plush king-size beds. The warm ocean breeze can be enjoyed on private sun terraces or refreshment sought by a dip in the deep lagoon directly from the wooden deck.

The three differing types of suites contain a variety of distinctive touches added in the renovation including free standing bathtubs, Grohe rain showers and wood shingle roofing along with extra indulgences such as an outdoor rinse shower, iPod docking stations and Nespresso coffee machines.


Discerning guests can choose their inspiration, whether it be waking up to a dazzling vista of endless ocean in a Sunrise Suite or soaking up the colours at sundown in a Sunset suite.  Alternatively, visitors can select one of the six Over Water Pool Suites where they can bathe in the serenity of their own 15 square metre infinity pool.

The work of international artist Christopher Hogan, Former Artist-in-Residence, decorates each private sanctuary accentuating the elegant aesthetics of the suites with abstractions of the reef and its shimmering palette.
