I am going to keep my review very short. This is my 10th visit to Maldives. First time in The Residence. I was trying to see if I can find any faults in this particular resort. I can honestly say None... House reef, Infinity pool, Fulhama jetty, Open air cinema and Trip to desserted island excellent. As for the staff... More

This island is quite a long way from Male, but worth the journey. The staff were very helpful everywhere we went and couldn't do enough. The villa was spectacular and overlooked a secluded area of beach and the reef beyond - really stunning. The food was fab, and there was lots of effort made to offer beach barbecues and different...

The hospitality is number one. It just feels like home. We were so well looked after and taken care of during breakfast, lunch and dinner. The waiter, Fairus is so attentive. He was aware of our diet. By the second day of our stay, he knew our wants and likes. Even the chef, Maladi, ensured that guests were satisfied with... More

This is a slightly late review as we travelled to The Residence at the beginning of July. It was an amazing holiday.. We have been to the Maldives 3 times before but the service at The Residence and the attitude of all of the staff set this hotel apart from the others we have stayed in. All aspects of the... More

Super late review but an unforgettable vacation that is still fresh in my head! A first time to Maldives and was absolutely blown away by the cinematic arrival jetty. Check-in was a breeze with friendly staff and a very distracting stunning ocean view at the lobby :) The water villa was breathtaking, with a sun deck perfect for enjoying a... More

Excellent service!!! I was really truly impressed! The island is stunning; white sand beaches, tranquil waters and abundant marine life and reefs to snorkel. The accommodations are excellent; we opted for a water villa which had stairs leading to the ocean. Very private, very clean, very well equipped. We had everything we needed, and more. Every meal was a favorite... More

I literally just stepped into my home back from Maldives and my wife and I are already missing The Residence. The hospitality at this place is second to none. I have never felt more pampered. The place is great, the food is great and the service is incomparable. I would like to give a few commendations to a few of... More
