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

We could not have been welcomed more warmly when we arrived at 11pm after our flight had been delayed. Sandwiches had been made for us and the bar kept open even though everyone else had gone to bed. Everything was explained in detail even at that hour. Makunudu is a tiny island of just 2.5 hectares. Guests are mainly European... More

We have just spend 10 days of sheer bliss being pampered by the lovely friendly team at Makunudu. The island is a touch of paradise surrounded by clear warm water with amazing tropical fish and coral. We spent hours each day snorkeling, and loved walking everywhere barefoot Despite its beautiful simplicity, every detail has been thought of. The rooms are... More

This was our fifth visit to the Maldives, and our fourth different resort over the last nine years. Makunudu is the best resort that we have stayed at so far, we could not fault the management, service and staff in any way. The speedboat ride to the island from Male Airport was fast and exciting, which cleared our minds following... More

This was our 10th trip to Maldives over 22 years, but our first in the month of November. Usually we have visited during either late Dec/January but predominantly April. Due to costs (we're from South Africa and our currency is pretty rocky) we decided to chance the weather/winds for the last 2 weeks of November. We expected a mixed bag... More

Extremely chilled vibe, brilliant snorkelling (the boat snorkelling trip is definitely worth it), excellent food and a rustic charm (we don't like hotels which try to be overly fancy so this really was the ideal balance between good quality and an understated feel) made this the perfect honeymoon destination for us. Highly recommend if you're looking for a very relaxed... More
