We have just got back from the most amazing holiday! Couldn't fault the location, accommodation, travel, staff or food. As a vegetarian I often find myself with little options but here the staff made sure I always had a good choice often making me special dishes, thanks to chef Ali!

We had a very nice week here, staying in an over-water suite. I was surprised by the humidity - my swimming trunks just didn't dry out! The people are lovely and friendly, always saying hello or good morning when they see you. We were also personally cooked for by the best pasta chef in the Maldives, in the Rehendi restaurant,...

We stayed at Chaaya Island Dhonveli for two weeks in March, our accommodation was in a water suite, which was excellent, with sun all day especially the rooms from 718 - 724. It would be very nice if umbrellas were available on the decking giving some shade, like other resorts do. The food is great, lots of choice, delicious, and... More

Absolutely fantastic place to spend a holiday. Staff, great. Location, fantastic. Accomodation, for us was excellent although another couple we spoke to complained of, paper thin walls in the beach bungalows. The food was very good with lots of variety, and although it was buffet style, a great deal of the dishes were cooked to order. A big thank you... More

Just back from dhonveli and was delighted by the experience and value for money. We stayed in the beach bungalows which were a bit dark and tired but was ideal for the quick access to the beach pool tennis court and reception.
