Boutique Beach Club

Boutique Beach is a simple 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 its own 2.5 km stretch of white sandy beach and magical sunsets, the resort offers guests a truly all-inclusive accommodation and diving package. After a glorious night's sleep, wake up to a freshly prepared breakfast by chef, Buddhika. Spend your days diving, snorkeling, relaxing or exploring. Accommodations are stylish and contemporary. There’s a roof top restaurant to watch the sunset or have your dinner under the stars. You can even arrange to sleep open air up there too, weather permitting!

Boutique Beach is a stylish hotel designed with all the diver's needs in mind. Six large 'boutique style' rooms with open air bathrooms and balconies or private gardens will provide a comfortable base.

Every bedroom features a camera work station with a charging area with USB ports and a spotlight for cleaning and camera maintenance. Large comfortable beds with deep back support mattresses and luxurious cotton sheets and feather or fiber pillows guarantee a good night’s sleep. The bathroom features Habitat towels and free Molton Brown bathroom accessories.


Diving & Snorkeling!
Boutique Beach is located on the beautiful Maldivian island of Dhigurah which is in the famous whale shark area in South Ari Atoll. The diving is unique in the Maldives as this area is the only place with year round whale shark sightings. There are 15 deep reefs or thilas or pinnacles in between Dhigurah and the next island...the famous Kudarah thila is just 15 minutes away. The PADI trained instructors at our dive base BB DIVE, will be happy to show you the best diving in the Maldives! Whether safari days looking for whale sharks, dolphins and mantas or exciting pinnacle dives with fantastic marine life and soft coral in amazing colors…

BB DIVE has it all!!!
The British Whale Shark conservation group, who are also based on Dhigurah, have recorded 301 whale sharks in our area, of which only 8 are female. Average length is 5.92m, which makes them 'teenagers'. The whale sharks are there all year round, but some weather conditions make them harder to spot. Mantas regularly feed in our lagoon as well as at the cleaning station at Rangali, which is within easy reach.

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.

Dhigurah island is located in the south part of Ari Atoll, only 20 minutes away by plane from Male. The island is one of the longest in Maldives and indeed that is what Dhigurah means in Dheveli, (Maldivian local language)....long island. The beach is 2 and 1/2 KM long and leads to a sand bank which is perfect for sunset watching wildlife watching and walks. There are two schools, a medical centre with a Doctor and 630 local people who are happy to share their beautiful island with all our guests.

With respect to local religion there is no alcohol available on Dhigurah, however guests who would like a drink can visit a nearby resort only 10 minutes away. Guests are reminded to wear shorts and tee shirts as a minimum when walking into the village but bikini sunbathing can be enjoyed right in front of Boutique Beach, minutes away.

Boutique Beach supports local initiatives aimed at improving the lives of our villagers and often sponsors school prizes and projects. We have worked to help reduce the plastic bag use on the island by providing all families with cotton carrier bags and carried out beach cleaning projects. Guests can learn to cook Maldivian style, play Bodu Beru drums, see local crafts and watch or play one of the many sports taking place on Dhigurah, volleyball, badminton, bashi...a ladies game where the ball is hit backwards.
