We have visited Vilu Reef back in 2010 and this time this was a surprise trip to celebrate my birthday. What an amazing choice! The design of the resort has slightly changed but the services and friendless of all staff didn't changed at all. On arrival we were welcome back by our "old" friend Upol (sorry if the spelling is...

It's really quite good and unforgettable. The beautiful sky, the ocean and the colourful underworld. We stayed there 8 days, so it's really good for us to make friends. We have several friends there, they very good. We still keep in touch with each other. They are Madhoodh and Hamdhoon.

This was our third visit to the Maldives and we would highly recommend Vilu Reef. We stayed in a Water Villa which was very nice with an awesome view, although the villa is starting to show its age this didn't really matter as you don't go to the Maldives to sit in your room! The island its self its beautiful... More

We booked an amazing water bungalow which was beautiful and I'm glad I've done it. Wouldn't bother again. Furthest away from everything & the beach villas looked so nice with private pools etc. We arrived and was looked after well, the restaurant was nice and the staff lovely. Seemed strange seeing the same staff breakfast, lunch & dinner but they... More

We were a bit unlucky with the weather. It was very windy and rained for one whole day non stop as well as being dull and rainy on a few other days. When the sun came out it was beautiful. It's a small island and it was very quiet when we were there. The staff were all lovely and very... More

Our holiday was at the end of April beginning of May for two weeks, the weather was good to us and only had two overcast days during our stay. When we arrived in Male we were taken straight to the seaplane departures to be told that they weren't expecting us until a later flight, so we would have to wait... More

I don't know where to start, we have travelled all round the World and stayed in some lovely places but we are always drawn back to Vilu Reef for so many reasons. The welcome you get on arrival is awesome with a short boat ride after leaving the Sea Plane you are greeted on the jetty and then to the... More

We have just returned from a two week stay at Vilu Reef. This was our 9th visit to this wonderful island and again we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived the entire team at the resort made us so welcome. Yes there is renovation work going on to improve facilities on the island. However there was no disruption... More

We just returned from a 5 night stay at Vilu Reef. In general we had a wonderful time-- the island was beautiful and the staff were friendly. Here are the highlights: - Seaplane transfer: Our luggage was collected and we were taken to the seaplane terminal by bus approximately 20-30 minutes after finishing immigration & customs. There is nothing fancy... More
