We were met at the airport straight off the flight and within 15 minutes we were on the boat for the roughest crossing to an island we have ever had (8 visits). On arrival we were met by some of the... More

This was our second time on this beautiful island and I'm so glad we returned. It was every bit as perfect as the last time we were there in 2012. It was lovely to see some of the same staff still there! As we were returning customers we were treated to several surprises through the week which made us feel... More

When you arrive by boat on Makunudu, a beautiful perfectly shaped beach is the first impression you get..We (a family with two teenagers) had 2 weeks to look forward to in February. We were assigned to bungalows 7 and 8. A curious first glance at the beach right in front of the rooms reveals a much different situation. They put... More

First time returning to an Ashland and so glad we chose Makunudu. After a bumpy ride on the speed boat (nothing anyone can do about the sea conditions) was glad to reach the island for a welcome drink and quickly filled out the normal forms and was shown to our room. What a great surprise to find the room number... More

We have been fortunate to have been to the Maldives for the last 12 years and stayed at many resorts. We have just returned from 2 weeks at Makunudu. Our two weeks were great, good weather, excellent staff both in restaurant, bar and room boy. We had requested a large double bed but got room 33 which had a double.... More

Our holiday experience was amazing all thanks to the staff who are friendly and attentive and made our anniversary day special.

First week in November (2014), first time in the Maldives, so we'd researched carefully... What we hoped for: A Robinson Crusoe island, a lack of crowds, a lack of water villas, good food, relaxed atmosphere, and an uninterrupted view of the Indian ocean. What we got: All the above and so much more - a paradise that exceeds the best... More
