Lily Beach Resort & Spa Offers Free PCR Testing for Guests

Lily Beach Resort & Spa is offering free PCR testing for their guests. The resort will offer testing for 2 adults and 1 child per booking and any additional person will be charged USD 200.

This service is especially timely since travelers returning to UAE are required to carry a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from August 1, 2020. The test must be taken a maximum of 96 hours before departure. Maldives welcome 3rd most number of tourists from UAE in since the border reopening in July.


In addition to this, World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has called upon governments to implement globally recognized testing standards for both inbound and outbound passengers at all airports to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

A 25-minute scenic seaplane journey from the airport and you’ll discover a luxury resort ranked as the Best All Inclusive Resort in Asia at the 2020 TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Awards. One of the most popular family resorts in Maldives, Lily Beach is making sure that your vacation to this idyllic paradise is safe, with the promise that returning here would be the best decision you’ll ever make.

The safety procedures have been implemented in-line with the updates issued by the Maldives Health Protection Agency (HPA), and will be reviewed over the coming weeks and months. Your temperature will be checked upon arrival and regularly during your stay. While hand sanitizers are available at the reception and all public areas, the team at lily beach will be wearing face masks for your comfort at all times.

All the villas undergo additional deep cleaning during your stay, with an extra level of care taken on air conditioning filters and private swimming pools. The rooms are cleaned only when guests are out of the villa. Laundry, linen, and swimming pool towels are washed at high temperature and the laundry is sanitized daily.

At all restaurants, ala carte service with digital menus will be available and buffet services are eliminated along with shisha service for the safety of guests. There will be at least 2 meters between each table. Sun loungers at the public swimming pools have been placed with a minimum distance of two meters between them.

All public areas, including the reception, restaurants, bars, fitness centre, spa, swimming pools, are regularly disinfected during the day. At the gym, healthy distance is maintained between each machine and new health and safety protocol are established at the spa so you can still experience wellness at the luxury resort without compromising your safety.
