A Perfect Day in Paradise

Boutique Beach is a luxury, contemporary diving hotel located on the beautiful Maldivian island of Dhigurah in the South Ari Atoll. Set against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean’s azure waters and our own 2.5km stretch of white sandy beach and magical sunsets, we offer our guests a truly all-inclusive accommodation and diving package. After a glorious night’s sleep, wake up to a freshly prepared breakfast by our chef, Buddhika. Spend your days diving, snorkelling, relaxing or exploring – making memories, before returning ‘home’ where the Boutique Beach guest support team will welcome you to our rooftop terrace for sundowners and a fine dinner. A perfect day in Paradise!

Our aim is to exceed our guests’ expectations

What you can expect

Boutique Beach is located on Dhigurah which is in the famous whale shark area in South Ari Atoll.
Flights from Male take 20 minutes; the speedboat option takes 1.5 hours and the ferry from Male takes 6 hours. We are happy to recommend and book the best option for your international flight times.

Our rooms are ’boutique style’ with balconies, open-air showers, comfortable beds with luxurious cotton sheets and feather pillows. Every guest bedroom has a camera workstation and there is a projector and screen in the communal lounge area where divers can show what they have filmed each day.

Accommodation is stylish and contemporary with a rooftop restaurant – watch the sunset or have your dinner under the stars. We can even arrange for you to sleep open air up there too, weather permitting!

Small and perfectly formed!  At Boutique Beach we aim to do everything in our power to deliver the most wonderful holiday ever for all our guests. Our staff take a personal pride giving the best guest service anywhere in the Maldives! 


Our diving instructors were born on our island and know our wildlife and reefs better than anyone else! Our dive boat carries small groups of divers making sure their experience is intimate and special. Our dive boat Captain has over 20 years spotting whale sharks and will always drop divers in the best place to observe them at close quarters. He can find each one of the 15 thilas, (pinnacles) without GPS and knows how to drop divers so they can drift slowly and calmly towards them. No fast and negative entry descents for our guests.

We carry out many dive courses each year, including open water, advanced and we are the only dive base on Dhigurah who can teach enriched air courses as we have the only NITROX compressor on the island. We give a personal service dedicated to each divers requirements and skill base. No safari boat can offer such a personal diving experience!
