Staff were very cordial to us. Excellent house reef for snorkeling and they take very good care of it. Every day spent there was an amazing experience for us. Thank you Vilamendhoo.

Superb overwater bungalow. Great snorkeling in house reef, and right off back deck. Good quality dining options and all the activities and services you would expect. Priced at level expected.

Wonderful, romantic, beautiful resort

Posted 04-Jun-2019 on Hotels
Loved our stay at this resort. We had the all inclusive overwater villa with Jacuzzi. General feedback: - We stayed in Male the night before and didn't get our early morning (8.15am) seaplane transfer timing until 8.00pm. We were exhausted and wanted to sleep so it was frustrating. - On our first morning we ate breakfast in the family restaurant and was abruptly told by a waiter that we can only eat in the adults only restaurant. We misunderstood and it was our misunderstanding but felt the waiter was telling us off instead of politely correcting us. - The house spirits are all locally produced spirits. I wasn't expecting top shelf brands but also wasn't expecting the cheap local brands. I only drink vodka and it did not taste good. I ended up switching to cocktails to mask the taste and I must say the cocktails are delicious! Now for the amazing stuff this resort has to offer: - The staff. All of them (except waiter from first day). Our housekeeper, guest relations staff, bar staff, waiters, resort photographers were all so lovely. - The Duniye Spa. If you only do one thing. Get the his and hers couple massage. It was so romantice and so beautiful. The best spa experience I have ever had. The ladies that did our massage were so good. - The photoshoot. We had so much fun doing it and had such a laugh. - The rooms, the infinity pool, the restaurants, food etc. All perfect. Highly recommend this resort to everyone.

Just needs a ceiling fan or a door of some sorts for the bathroom and back decks on the over water bungalows other than that it was perfect

I don’t usually do reviews but have to say this resort is nothing short of fantastic. Yes there are other resorts that will offer you an ultra premium experience at multiples of the price. So why is it soooo good? One of the best house reefs in the Maldives no doubt about it. Straight off the beach and importantly the reef is close to the surface so you are fully immersed in the sea life. We saw turtles baby sharks moral eels and a dazzling array of reef fish in crystal clear water no more than 30 meters from the beach....stunning. Food is of an excellent standard and so is the service if you have been to maturitius it’s a similar excellent standard. I am not a diver but spoke to many guests who had a supreme experience. The different shades of aqua have to be seen to be believed. The only possible negative is the beach is relatively narrow but tbh we are beach lovers and managed to get a daily spot right outside our beach villa that was stunning. In short fantastic!

Very quite and peaceful, a real paradise. It’s not worth paying for the beach villa since you might get a very little space with just some shadow
