We went in January and we enjoyed every minute at Villa Stella. Excellent value for money! Ali and his sons took great care of us and Kumar, the chef, was very nice and cooked delicious food every day. We stayed in the biggest room at Villa Stella, just next to the area where the meals were served. We would have... More

We stayed one week at Villa Stella and I can´t imagine any other holiday as perfect as this one. Everything was just great, starting from the always delicous food (thank you again Kumaar!) to the daily trips with Ali to different desert islands ... we felt like being in paradise! "Let´s go snorkeling" became to an important part of the... More

The island has a private beach, but we didn't spend a lot of time there. Everyday Areef took us to excellent snorkeling spots. We saw... More

We loved every single minute we spent on Rinbudhoo, from the moment we stepped out of the boat and realised we really were in a special place to the moment we packed to go home and felt as if we were leaving a bit of our heart on the island. Ali and all of his family/personnel are more than welcoming,... More

We spent one week in Villa Stella at the end of January 2013 and we really enjoyed our stay over there. All the staff was really nice and make everything to make us spend good holidays. The room (room #1) was big and very comfortable with an outside shower (which is practical to wash snorkeling materials). Areef brought us each... More

... back from Maldives with a big, big piece of Rinbudhoo island in my soul. I couldn't believe that such places ware really existing. I am not only talking about the coral beaches and the marvelous landscapes you can admire all around... I am talking about Rinbudhoo and its people, its school, its children, its life that we were so... More
