In the Indian Ocean, its like a small emerald diamond. Only 36 villas are available at the property, 30 of which are water residences and the remaining 6 are beach properties. Seaplane travel to this lovely islands takes 30 minutes. Mirihi is the best property for snorkeling.

This is another massive house reef that stretches for 6 kilometres. On the eastern point of the reef is a 350-meter-long little island. The Aqua Residences are located on the shallow side of the reef, with a very short drop over. From whatever point on the island, the reef is only a short distance away.

A 35-minute seaplane voyage or a 20-minute scheduled flight to Dharavandhoo based on the short speedboat trip to Reethi Beach are the only ways to get there. The island is surrounded by beautiful white beaches, and the word itself means “good beach” in the native tongue. On the island, there are 120 rooms, 30 of which are on the ocean.

The reef is widely obtainable from a variety of beach locations; there have been some small parts of the reef, but there is always a deeper region nearby to swim across to reach that cliff off.
