Info about the resort
As with Sun Island, Holiday Island is also located in South Ari Atoll. With the same easy access to the world-renowned whale shark sites and some of the best dive spots in the country,
All 142 rooms in Holiday Island Resort are air-conditioned beach bungalows within feet of the water’s edge. Designed with peace in mind, the classic whitewashed walls and cane furniture creates a calm environment in keeping with the island location. For those travelling with children or in larger numbers, family rooms are available consisting of two connecting rooms.
All meals are served buffet-style in the main restaurant and offer a wide variety of both Western and Asian cuisine. The bar and coffee shop are open all day and have a-la-carte refreshments available. In the evening, guests may want to gather at the bar and watch as the sun gently glides below the lilac horizon whilst sipping on their favourite drink.
When you’re not beneath the water’s surface, there’s an abundance of activities on offer topside. Banana boats, catamarans and kayaks are always ready beachside. Excursions such as bottom-line fishing and dolphin cruises are organised daily. For those not wishing to venture very far, the sports centre offers a well-equipped gym, table tennis and state of the art indoor simulated golf.
The island also features tennis and badminton courts. Our award-winning Araamu Spa is hosted by a highly qualified spa team from around the world, trained in Thai, Balinese and Swedish massage as well as Ayurvedic treatments. If you do feel like experiencing life on the bigger island, shuttle boat transfers run six times a day and offer you a chance to sample what’s on offer on the other side of the water.
