I have been there a while ago...the Island is ok but not as you imagine maledives. Food was ok...the rooms a bit old but what really made me sad was that there was trash coming from the ocean all over the beach and nobody from the staff cares about. The beach is nice but the water at many parts not... More

We spent 6 days at the spectacular Ranveli Village. The food was delicious beyond words, even from a very picky eater's point of view. There was always something for everyone in the buffet, and everything tasted and looked excellent. The room was comfortable, and room attendants always surprised us with our bedding made up in artistic shapes. They kept the... More

Last week we came back from a 20 day visit in the Maldives, 10 days on Ranveli. This is our 2nd visit to this beautiful little island. We just had to go back. On our previous visit, 2 years ago, the food was not so good, now it is excellent! They have a new chef. It is only the red... More

Bad points: Terrible MAF (Mosquito Air Force) and other insects in this island Lack of diversity choice in breakfast and lunch, and lack of quality of some ingredients Complaints about the manager (some employees don´t like him, and there are many good reasons for that ...) Some chinese (women) tourists, because they don´t respect other guests Some water pressure problems... More

I have nothing but great things to say about Ranveli Village. Everything went smoothly, from making our booking until we left the island. We spent 10 nights 11 days at the hotel. We felt privileged to be in such a magical place. The beauty of the surroundings is wonderful – the tranquil, romantic, paradise-like setting that is second to none.... More

Spent two weeks at Ranveli village and loved every second, best snorkelling I've ever experienced and service is top class. We were greeted at the airport and everything was taken care of. For a budget Maldives island it blows some of the bigger boys out the water. Rooms are simple but clean. Will hopefully be back soon.
