Welcome to Biyadhoo Island Resort
There’s no pretence about Biyadhoo – if you’re looking for a simple escape at a good value, established resort with a wonderful natural environment, this is it. It’s why many of the guests here return year after year. This year, the resort has improved many of its facilities, with changes including free Wi-Fi in the lobby and bar area and twice-weekly snorkelling trips, as well as a refreshment of the rooms, reception, restaurant (where there’s also a new chef) and bar.
Biyadhoo is a haven for divers, with a wealth of top dive sites nearby. The renowned PADI dive school is particularly popular, with the excellent instructors on-hand to advise which of the varied dive sites are best suited to your ability. For snorkellers, the fabulous house reef has seven different passages and offers the opportunity to get up-close with reef sharks, rays and turtles. And for relaxation, there’s a main stretch of beach plus several smaller beaches around the island.
At Biyadhoo, Palm is the resort’s air-conditioned restaurant, offering buffets and set menus with international cuisine. In the evening, the al fresco Coconut Bar becomes the island’s hub as the place for drinks in a relaxed atmosphere, often with entertainment. Rooms are housed in two-storey blocks, just a few steps back from the water’s edge. They are fairly basic but perfectly adequate, as most guests here tend to focus on the outdoors. Each has a balcony or terrace leading to the beach.
