This is a great resort to visit if you are traveling on a budget trip to the Maldives. It is located on the South Ari Atoll, a small island. The rooms are big, with double bed, bathtub and everything else you need. There is only one restaurant here, located above the sea. You can watch baby sharks and other fish... More

Beautiful Island. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday, this is the island to go to in Maldives as you do not feel crowded even when all rooms are occupied. We enjoyed the 45 min sea plane ride + 10 min boat ride to arrive from Male. The staff were so friendly to take care of all our... More

Stayed here in June, the place wasn't fully booked which made it feel really private and peaceful. Seriously one of the most beautiful paces I've every been. The staff can't do enough for you. I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to the Maldives, the prices are half what others are charging but nothing is scarifised. Amazng holiday!!

The island had beautiful gardens, rooms were clean and the staff great. Bathrooms have a bath with shower in it. No TV in the room (which we prefer) aircon and ceiling fan.The snorkelling was good but not fantastic (we have been to other islands where there are many more fish). We did see plenty of eels, sharks and a variety... More

As you would expect, the resort is beautiful location, very small location, about 45 mins flight out of Male, the capital. The island is small, huge white, sandy beaches on one side and coral snorkelling area on the other side. Rooms are clean, but comfortable, on a one up, one down orientation, but all face the sea. There is decent... More

I have recently stayed one week at Ranveli village. It is great value for money comparing the cost on other islands, yet the standard is still above satisfactory. I heard some couples complaining about the stay but I am sorry you can't expect water bangalow full board for 300£ a week. The food was a bit boring but the service... More

Wasn't sure what to expect of Ranvelli village, having read mixed reviews on trip advisor, I would love to bring all the family here, it's absolute paradise. Excellent views, staff are friendly, food is good, especially the fish! Defo Reccomend!

I stayed at Ranveli with my husband for our honeymoon for 5days. The property is lush green with excellent housekeeping. The property has private beach which provide complete privacy. Staff is friendly & polite. The biggest concern I faced was meal. We had opted for a 3 meal a day buffet plan while booking. But soon realized that buffet has... More

2 of my friends and I spent a very relaxing 5 days in Ranveli. All the Staff were friendly and accommodating. It so happened that our 2nd day was my birthday and Ranveli was generous enough to prepare a small surprise for me - a creative table set-up and a birthday cake and even an unexpected greeting from a few...
