Best vacation I have ever been on. By the end of our stay the staff felt more like family. I was left in tears when it was time to leave. The most beautiful place I have ever visited. The house reef is amazing with plenty of wild life- sharks, turtles, manta rays, sting rays, thousand of tropical fish. Hands down best vacation ever. Thank you to everyone at Ellaidhoo ❤️❤️❤️

We chose Ellaidhoo Maldives for several reasons, including proximity to Male, amenities, value for the money, and because the “house reef” is one of the best in the Maldives. The resort didn’t disappoint. The diving is amazing and facilities are terrific, but we were also most impressed by the staff. Andrea made sure our transportation was all set and also helped us throughout the week. Nirmala led a most wonderful sunrise yoga class that was truly special. Kamul made sure our waterfront bungalow was kept beautiful but also helped us with our laundry and other needs. I could go on and on but we are truly happy we came here and highly recommend this resort. I’ll add that Haran made us a terrific custom salad daily for lunch and Darshika helped with special food made for my wife and Vigula helped with special gluten free food.

Hello. This is Shakira & Natalie. We stayed at Ellaidhoo for about 5 days and it was an amazing experience. We were welcomed from the start of our trip until the very end. The staff was the highlight of the trip. They were phenomenal. To mention a few: Ms. Jacky at the reception, Mr. Marlon, (chef) Mr. Suneth, (chef) Mr. Singh, Osandal, Priyantha, Naufel, Iqubal, Samel and many others that I can’t recall their names at this time. I apologize. They celebrated Natalie’s birthday. They accommodated her needs unexpectedly and made the occasion quite memorable. To this I say, thank you. I am also glad they adhered to Covid restrictions as well and made us feel safe at all times. Thank you all. We will be back. 😊

Our bungalow was a dream, everything you would hope for when you think about a vacation to the Maldives. Outdoor rain shower, beautiful ocean views, and more. However, if you are looking for a full relaxation trip this is for you, if you want more water sports and thrills you may be disappointed. Many of the excursions are dependent on other guests signing with you. The poolside is very quiet, my friend and I thought there would be some music playing, but there wasn't and we felt like if we played some we would be disrupting others/the ambiance. We also were confused as to why, as VIP members why we weren't allowed to dine in the general dining hall. Our hope was to get to meet and interact with more people, but we were only allowed to eat on the water bungalow side. Make sure to read and inquire about all COVID protocols, I did not see any information from the hotel or from the country's health protocols that you could not island-hop without staying the night at a property.
