We wanted to spend half a day out so decided to go to Embudu Village. The beaches were very nice and we saw some sharks and reef fish while snorkelling. The coral however was brown & not very attractive. We were treated like second class citizens for lunch and told to wait half an hour after it started until residential... More

We booked with Travelbag, which was excellent value for 'all inclusive'. Our room (32) was in a perfect location, directly onto the beach, which was a large sandbank. The room was a decent size and the bathroom large and modern, with spacious shower. The room service was superb, with rooms done twice a day. The island is small and you... More

The beaches on the island are amazing and the reef is one of the best I have seen. The food is very good for a 3* resort and better than some 5* resorts. I prefer the beaches and snorkelling on Embudu village over places such as Thailand, however there is not a great deal of day trips so if you... More

From the very beginning until we got on the boat for the return trip all Embudu personnel were absolutely friendly and helpful. The villa on the island was spacious, clean (really clean - they cleaned 2 times per day), cozy and simply had everything one may need. The food selection was astonishing, tasty, various and we terribly miss it now.... More

Our decision to head to the Maldives was a last minute thing, something we had on the 'back burner' while we were traveling in Sri Lanka and noticed flights were quite cheap from there. As independent travelers, it was out first resort experience, it felt weird to us be it was very comfortable. We chose this place mainly because it... More

We arrived at Gatwick for our departure with Thomson's....one of the last to Embudu with Thomson, I believe....only to be in the baggage drop que with the new girl behind the counter on her first...

All in all this place is great however, it could get a little boring after a week. The island is nice, tranquil and pretty, however the rooms are average and the food is not brilliant. It's lovely to get the Indian Ocean sunshine but when the rain showers come there's not a great deal to do. Sometimes you can hear... More

The Embudu village is a magnificent island, if you like a calm and relaxing atmosphere. The staff were very pleasant and courteous; they couldn’t do enough for us. You can walk around the whole island in approximately 20 minutes, you’ll never need to wear shoes all the time you are there, even the reception area is like a sandy beach.... More

Embudu is the best in simple words. If what you have in mind is a real resort experience, do not hesitate to book Embudu. Plus Points- Cosy rooms, Closed bathroom unlike some open bathroom concepts(always check your bathroom concept prior to booking and don't complain later), Beach Villas spread around the long island, a lovely all sandy beach towards the...

This place is still the Maldives as it should be, no news no shoes with happy smiling staff not hanging around for a tip for... More
