Dhawa Ihuru

5* out of 5 stars

Set like a glittering jewel in the deep-blue Indian Ocean, Ihuru, meaning ‘old palm trees’ in the Maldives language, bursts with lush, green vegetation that positively glows in the tropical sun. Fringing the Island like a gleaming halo are broad, shining stretches of picture-perfect, white sand, so soft that you won’t be able to wait to sink your toes into its warm, velvet surface.

With some of the Maldives very finest house reefs, Dhawa Ihuru is the ultimate scuba and snorkelling destination. Gaze wide-eyed into another world as spectacular tropical marine life plays and flutters around the radiant blooms of coral that lie just yards from the shore. Truly luxurious villas, a sensational spa and a fantastic array of leisure and sports activities make this a genuinely special destination. With a great selection of international flavours available at the resort’s delightful restaurant, along with a stunning and unique range of special dining options to be had, a stay at Dhawa Ihuru is beyond doubt an experience to be savoured.

In preparation for welcoming guests back for a healthy and happy stay at their resorts, the Banyan Tree Group has launched the Safe Sanctuary Programme in partnership with world-renowned health & safety organisation, Bureau Veritas. This thorough and expertly advised programme includes over 40 areas of increased measures and enhanced protocols. Highlights include: rigorous cleaning and distancing focusing on high-traffic areas and touchpoints; reduced capacity quotas in enclosed spaces; contactless options provided as much as possible; and continuous education and training for staff.
