Embudu offers cozy, very relaxed feeling. It's tiny island, it takes about 20 minutes to circle it walking. Just the right size never to feel crowded. It has a superb house reef and coral garden for snorkling on the south-west side and a nice current along the beach on the north-east side for some drift snorkling. The staff is very... More

The Embudu island offers a very good combination of everything you expect from the Maldives - crystal clear Indian ocean water around stunning beaches & cosy beach corners, excellent snorkeling in the very big 'house reef' - at a reasonable price, which is not obvious in this island group... But not top luxury and rooms not very recently renovated, but... More

Embudu is a nice place to spent on a nice holiday. The food is colorful, but I missed more vegetables for breakfast. Rooms are kept clean and tidy. Cleaner 2x daily walks and is very helpful. Unpleasant is that it is much hear everything from the other rooms. It's almost as if there was a wall. This is really annoying.... More

The staff are extremely friendly and the food was 10/10 throughout the day with a wide range of dishes and desserts (buffet). What I loved about this place was that they have a different themed cuisine everyday (barbecue night was my favourite). Staff clean your room everyday and are really friendly. I recommend booking a villa on this island and... More

Flight: Had to change at Doha, which was fine as there was a short overlay of 55min and a good excuse to walk about and stretch the legs. Bags were given a rapid transfer tag and arrived safely in both directions. Boat transfer: Easy - 25 min transfer. Accommodation: We upgraded to a water bungalow for the week. Everything was...

We have travelled to Maldives as a family a few times and this year could not afford to spend our usual amount. We had 2 weeks for 3,200 with travel bag at full board, which for 2015 I thought was very good. The island is beautiful and while it isn't anywhere near as amazing as Bandos or Meeru it does...

Embudu is most of the time the most economic Island to travel to Maldives. But dont think that makes it low class. The island has a relaxed athmosphere. The food is great, also the variation. The bungalows are basic but suficient and good value for price. Its also great for snorkelers and divers. Some months it has a sandy beach... More

Embudu Village is a budget Maldives island. Provided you're aware of this in advance you should have a great stay. My family of 4 stayed in a superior room , which appeared to be recently refurbished. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom very spacious. The room was serviced and swept twice a day. Air-con worked perfectly. All meals are... More

We spent 5 days 4 nights at Embudu Village, full board (just as a heads up this does include coffee in the morning and juice but does NOT include any other beverages, not even water). What a beautiful island and wonderful gateway for relaxation and snorkeling. We had initially booked a superior room but after one night we were told... More
