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

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

Just back from 10 days stay at this resort, and am very disappointed. I have read other reviews and seen that people revisit this island, and having visited am amazed. I am fortunate enough to have visited 5 different Maldavian Islands in the past 4 years, this ranks number 5 of those, by far the lowest. I booked all inclusive,... More

The rooms are spacious and cosy, food in restaurant is excellent (just lack of fruits compared to last year), bar entertainments are hold on daily basis,mesmerising house reef with plenty of fish and stunning beach renovated beach villas with pool. I would... More

We have stayed at the Vilu Reef from March 1st until 13th. After all it's fair to say that this has definitely been one the most relaxing and impressive holidays we've ever had. The address of welcome was very friendly and professional. A staff member showed us around the island individually and as we entered our accomodation, there were no... More

We did A LOT of research on where to go on our Honeymoon in The Maldives. We wanted clear water, a room over the water and somewhere that would accommodate my dietary needs with all inclusive. Vilu Reef was BEAUTIFUL. We stayed in a room over the water with a private plunge pool. The room was amazing, the water was... More
