In the past few years, a new style of holiday has opened up in the Maldives - local island resorts offer value for money in prime locations throughout the Maldives. Casa Mia is situated on the tip of Mathiveri island in North Ari and aims to give guests and authentic Maldivian experience from start to finish. A short seaplane ride from Male and you are there! Feel the warmth of the white sands between your toes or listen to the wave gently lap the shores of island. Escape the modern world and experience island living the way it should be.
Casa Mia is an intimate resort with only 24 rooms. All are modern, stylish and spacious with the option of either a beach room (ground floor), sea view or garden view rooms spread across 2 wings. Each room has air con as standard and can be arranged with either double or twin beds. None of the rooms have a TV. The beach front and sea view rooms are arranged in 2 storey blocks, with 1 room of each in each block. The standard rooms are in the new resort wing, whilst the deluxe rooms are in the original wing - please confirm at the time of booking if you have a preference. Surrounded by lush gardens and right on the beach front, Casa Mia is ideal for single travellers, groups or couples looking for the big fish action that makes the Maldives so famous.
The stunning blue waters around Casa Mia are impossible to resist! A short swim from the beach is a tiny private island where you can soak up the rays or snorkel. Or join one of the optional local excursions for a tour of the town, water skiing, wake boarding or sailing. If you are celebrating, make sure you try the sunset champagne dinner (local charges apply to all excursions). There is even a floating bar for your even sundowners! If you are love action packed diving, lazing in the sun or want to spend you time exploring the local island life, Casa Mia makes the Maldives more affordable than ever. Please be aware: as Casa Mia is located on a local island, there is no alcohol permitted in the resort itself. There is "boozy boat" with a fully stocked bar moored close to the resort and transfers run throughout the day so you can enjoy a tipple at any point in your holiday.

You get to see the most beautiful sunsets and enjoy quiet time on the beach every evening. Special thanks to Adam, Ivan and Rowan, awesome bunch of people, Violetta V
The resort is a nice small one located on one of the local islands, only 10 double rooms (thought they are expanding.) this makes it a really cozy resort. There are few guests because of the small size of the resort and the staff is friendly and helpful. As I don't like big hotels with lots of tourists, this makes Casa Mia perfect for my taste. After a week with liveaboard diving we had a week on Casa Mia with diving day trips (2-3 dives a day). The guides knew the dive sites and where to find the good stuff and they were fun and friendly. Night dive at Maaya Thila is highly recommended :) Jonas C
Thanks Ivan, one of the best dive instructors that I have ever met in my life. Really. The dives are awesome. Although I could not see mantas or whalesharks, such oceanic giants, I could still see lots of big sharks, big rays (eagle, sting, marble)... lots of fishes, corals... beautiful. The staff of Casa Mia were friendly and provided good service, starting from the airport greeting staff up to the restaurant waiters. They were so nice. I was well-blessed as during my short stay, the weather was very good, the sun was burning and everywhere was bright blue!!! Really lucky. I feel I'm well-blessed. Susy Lay
