Reviewed 28 July 2014

We spent 5 days a the Lily Beach with our 10 family members and had the best vacation ever at a beach property, probably ever. We were with our 80 year old mothers and she also had a blast. The resort has been designed and built to take care of our every need. We chose two types of villas both Family and Water villas. The family Villas were 10/15 meters from the white sandy beaches and the snorkelling above the coral reefs were exciting and rewarding. jThe water villas were very well designed and appointed. You walk in to a glass bottom foyer and a very comfortable and large bed room with an extra bed , Nesspresso coffee machine and well stocked bar, on the other side is a very large bath room with twin sinks, jacuzzi tub with separate showers and WC. The deck outside has a Jacuzzi to lounge in and enjoy the beautiful sun set. You can step down to the waters and snorkel and get to see the most amazing underwater life. The AQUA bar with attached infinity pool is a cool place ot relax during the day and have a cocktail and lazy lunch. The second Pool and bar called VIBES had Pool and TT tables. They also had a tennis court and a kids entertainment centre along with a well equipped Gym. The dive center offered Scuba Diving for the beginner as well as the seasoned divers. The two speciality restaurants Tamarind and the Tepankyaki live cooking table are a must do experience. The food and liquor served are first rate and well prepared and served. The lilly Maa dining area also had a large spread for the most discerning guests. They also have a great water sports centre where you can rent snorkelling equipment, kayaks and also Jet skis and wind surfing equipment. The resort organises fishing and sun set cruises and a visit to the closes village to give you a feel of the local live styles.
The Tamara Spa is one of the best we have ever been to and has the most wonderful services by very well experienced therapists.
I recommend the Platinum all inclusive plan for a most wonderful experience at the resort. they also organised a born fire by the beach for us to celebrate our mothers birthday with cake and cocktails on the sandy water front at night ager dinner were we roasted marsh mellows.
We will surely go back to enjoy all the resort has to offer.

Room Tip: Choose the water villas as they offer the best experience how ever the family and lagoon villas are...

Fantastic place with good service, good food and high quality drinks, wonderful spa, good for snorkeling and diving. It's very relaxing place and specially if you stay in water villa you feel like you are the only one in the resort. Everything is arranged in the way that families with children and couples do not disturb each other.

July: monsoon season, but only a couple of windy days and a few showers, otherwise fine and hot. The resort reflects the high standards and hard work of the staff. Lily Maa, the buffet restaurant, had a huge selection of very high quality and delicious food, with themed evening buffets - Asian, seafood, Italian etc. As most of the guests are - or were during our stay - Chinese, there is a particularly good Chinese cuisine element. With a water villa, we had direct access to the sea, with good snorkelling amongst the corals, but be careful not to damage any, particularly at low tide. The dive centre was efficiently run and provided a variety of dive options, including a wreck, whalesharks and manta rays (which you may or may not see). All are boat dives, except for the house reef which is directly outside the dive centre and handy for training and review dives.
The all-inclusive plan is a great idea - nothing to sign for except the chargeable extras (spa, diving etc.). Lily Beach staff are efficient and friendly and deserve a large tip at the end of your stay.

Room Tip: Water villas on sunset side give you both sunrise and sunset, at least in July.

I'm from China and I visited Lily with my cousin brother from July 13th-17th. Although it was a very short time, I did really enjoy myself there. The beautiful sea and beach are beyond words. The service and hotel are excellent too. Most of the Blacks are enthusiastic. But I feel a little embarrassed because most people came for a honey moon while I came with my brother just because I haven't found a girl but I really want to dive myself in a total holiday after the college entrance examination. I will miss everything on Lily beach. Maybe I said farewell to Lily forever but I'm always keeping a good memory of u! Thanks for giving me such a perfect week! Sorry for my poor English which can not express all of my good feelings.

Room Tip: all room of the same type are similar:)

We just came back from 2 weeks at Lily Beach with our 3 children aged 4-8. Based on all the good reviews we expected it to be good, and it exceeded our expectations. Our kids were looked after all day by fantastic staff at the turtles club which offers a wide range of activities for children. We spent most of our time on the beach and the pool next to the kids club, while there are quiet zones other places of the island so I can't see any reason to complain about nuisance from families at this place. Staff were in general very friendly. We will certainly start saving for a return trip to this heaven on earth place. Thanks for 2 fantastic weeks we will never forget.
