Casa Mia

One of the few resorts in the Maldives offering a genuinely authentic experience.

Casa Mia is a 'boutique' resort with just 10 rooms along the beach on the local island of Mathiveri in the north of Ari Atoll and only a speedboat or seaplane ride away from Male. The island is well laid out with track roads and local stone houses, it has a small school, a simple clinic, a traditional coral stone Mosque and unlike other areas in the Maldives, Mathiveri still remains untouched giving you the opportunity to really explore the Maldivian way of life and get a genuine and educational experience.

The resort’s rooms are modern and spacious with the option of getting a beach villa on the ground floor or a sea view villa on the 1st floor where you can enjoy the stunning blue water views after a great day exploring the underwater world. Each room has air conditioning as standard and can be arranged with double or twin beds. Casa Mia’s beach front location makes this intimate resort the perfect choice for single travellers, groups or couples looking to experience the renowned Maldivian pelagic action around Ari Atoll.

Casa Mia also has its own perfectly private and tiny island just a few strokes away where you can just laze around and indulge in a true paradise looking over to your chosen home away from home from a very tropical and different perspective.

To continue enhancing your true dream of paradise, Casa Mia’s SSI diving school will inspire you to explore the incredibly panoramic underwater world. For the already certified divers, Casa Mia is located directly in the heart of the world famous diving mecca of North Ari Atoll with several of Maldives best dive sites easily on hand. Maaya Thila, Fish Head, Hafsa and Rasdhoo are all within a ride away.
