We've just spent 10 nights at Makunudu - our fourth trip to the Maldives but the first trip to this island. The villas are fine - many reviews had mentioned ants on the bed, dust on the bed from termites in the roof, but we didn't experience either in the ten days we were there. They are comfortable, kept immaculately... More

Our adventure started with Angelfish Travel , who were most helpful advising us of which holiday destination would best suit our need . The description of our resort and what it offered was spot on , and also most importantly , the diving centre would meet our needs . Angelfish sorted out seamless travel arrangements and flying with Emirates was... More

Makunudu is a small and intimate island of great beauty, about a 50 minute speedboat trip from Male airport. The airport is well organized and efficient. Upon exiting the arrivals hall there are a number of kiosks where you arrange your onward travel, whether it be by seaplane or speedboat. Everyone is friendly and helpful, directing you to the right... More

My Wife and I stayed on Makunudu in September 2014 it was our second trip to the maldives and it was absolutely amazing from the booking process with Angelfish Travel to the actual 10 days stay on the island. Many thanks to all at Angelfish who arranged every thing and nothing was too much trouble. The island is small but... More

2nd Visit to Makunudu after our honeymoon 10 years ago. Delighted to find that very little had changed. If you want marble floors, infinity pools, late night entertainment, music and water bungalows there are plenty of other options. If you want a true Maldivian paradise then just get on and book it. It is a quiet, beautiful place with wonderful... More

Spent a week in Makunudu in end of July/ early August. This was our 3rd visit to the Maldives and the 4th resort that we have been to - and overall probably the best. The Island is smallish, white sand, blue-greenish water and a lot of vegetation - a typical Maldives Island. The beach in front of some of the... More

We spent 5 days here in December and came home with mixed feelings. The island itself is relatively easy to get to - a 50 minute speedboat ride from Male but we went over on a windy day and the ride was very choppy so it was a good job I'd taken seasick tablets! ;) The positives: The island itself...

We returned home a few days ago from our 2nd visit to Makunudu Island to celebrate our 5th Wedding anniversary. We thought our first visit 3 years ago was amazing but the staff made our return visit out of this world. Thankfully nothing had changed and it was still the same untouched beautiful paradise with amazing reefs for snorkelling as... More
