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.

Ranveli Village is a Fantastic Hotel and has one of the best beaches that you can possibility get. I stayed in a few Island and found the beach in Ranveli Village the best. I am still not sure why their prices are so low and I expect they will raise them very soon. So take advantage of it before they... More

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
