Finally getting around to writing this review. Stayed in Ellaidhoo 29 sep - 13 oct 2013, on honeymoon. Never been to the Maldives before, so can't compare islands, but have been many other tropical places in the world, and Ellaidhoo was a paradise on earth. Was apprehensive about the wall, but it is necessary and didn't detract from the beautiful... More

We chose this island based on the reviews from Tripadvisor and it fully met our expectations. We wanted a really good house reef that we could access easily from our accommodation. This was definitely the best bit of the holiday for us. We spent many hours each day exploring the reef. Strongly recommend the night snorkelling excursion run from the... More

We spent our honeymoon on the island at chaaya reef ellaidhoo, and have to say we loved it. The staff were all very friendly and couldn't be more helpfull. We stayed in room 217 and we're surprised by how big it was, we overlooked the Sea and the view we had was amazing. Food was unbelievable so much to choose... More

Just back from great trip to Ellaidhoo, I am sure my thoughts echo many previous reviews- The Island- Not the prettiest, so maybe not the ideal choice if its your one and only trip, the interior is rather abandoned , empty greenhouse , gloomy 1960s comprehensive block leisure complex, pretty good book swap though, ghastly, but vital, crumbling sea defences...

We holidayed from 14th march and it was our first time to the Maldives. We were overwhelmed by every aspect of our holiday. The flight with Emirates was superb the service second to none. The views of the islands when approaching the Maldives was breathtaking. Glad we transferred by seaplane as that too was an exciting experience. In my view... More

We have just returned from two weeks in Ellaidhoo. We have previously been to Reethi and Vilamendhoo twice (pre and post refurb). My wife emailed the island before departure asking for a room in a specific part of the island. Although we got a response we didn't get what we asked for but hey, that's life. We actually got room... More

Our first trip to the Maldives. As MrDavid has said I picked the island because of the house reef and the very favourable reviews. We weren't disappointed with anything. There's so much that's great about Ellaidhoo. I can't get over how quiet it was - so peaceful. It was lovely not to be inundated with other people. Favourite time of... More

I cannot rate this holiday enough, it was simply superb. We stayed for one week in a water bungalow (422) and from touching down on the sea plane to transfer to the Dhoni to arriving on the island it was simply breath-taking. Blue, clear ocean, white sand, smiling staff, beautiful palm trees and a refreshing welcome drink.....this just set the... More
