My wife and I recently (May 3rd - 17th 2015) had our 2nd stay at Makunudu Island having previously stayed there for a week in May last year.

This was our fifth visit to Makunudu Island. It fits nearly all of what we want from the Maldives. "No News No Shoes" as they say in the guide books. We love the quietness of the island. There are only 37 villas, all are identical but situated in different surroundings. Jan and I prefer the south side, and enjoy being... More

This was our third visit to Makunudu and as such, knew what the island is like: unspoilt, quiet, very natural and a tropical paradise. Everything was the same, apart from repeat guests used to be invited to a small gathering where cocktails and nibbles were enjoyed as a gesture of thanks for returning - this did not happen and neither...

We had an amazing holiday at this resort to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Makunudu is a really lovely unspoilt island, its natural beauty needs no dressing up with fancy resort facilities.

This was our fifth visit to beautiful Makunudu, and once again we could not fault in any way or any respect the quality of our holiday. This is a beautiful completely unspoilt island with no artificial trappings, you therefore always feel you truly are in the Maldives. We are always given the warmest of welcomes, the standard of service from... More

My wife and I thought that this was the perfect place to start our first ever trip to Maldives and India. There is no pressure to do things and the staff are attentive without being intrusive. After an extraordinarily hectic time at home in New Zealand right up to the time we left, we could not have started our holiday... More

This was our fifth visit to Makunudu which pretty well says it all. As always staff most friendly and attentive without being over familiar and returning guests made to feel especially appreciated. We certaainly hope to visit again. A no news no shoes paradise although free wi-fi to top up kindles etc would be appreciated.
