The place is wonderful, small and romantic. It would have been a perfect honeymoon had it not been for the construction work going on in the beach villa next to us everyday. Loud power-tools made it impossible to relaxe outside the room. The staff is very friendly and the bathroom in the deluxe beach villa was outstanding. I would definitely... More

Paradise really does await you. From the moment we stepped off the boat, our honeymoon was made just perfect by the welcoming Maldivian staff; so friendly, so warm and keen to address your every need. As a gay couple, we were a bit nervous about visiting a strict Muslim country (albeit in the confines of a resort) but we needn't... More

Vilu Reef Beach & Spa Resort Stayed there end of January 2015 for one week. Loved every second. We stayed in two different rooms (thanks for the upgrade!). Both were beach villas - one with a pool. I'd definitely recommend paying the extra for the pool. House reef is excellent. The best thing that Iiked was the service for whichi... More

After a long flight we were greeted at the airport by one of their representatives and they informed us they hadn't taken payment yet and they needed it there which was not a problem but we... More

We stayed in the overwater bungalow (bungalow nr 416) for 10 nights in the end of July. It was mostly cloudy and sunny weather with some minor rainfalls. Bungalow was cozy but we were really disappointed over the poor selection in the minibar. No snacks! No chocolate! We were given morning robes, but no slippers (odd). There were no pens... More

Fish and coral of every colour and size in abundance. Plenty of baby sharks, a couple of big ones too! Also we saw a turtle... More
