I am shocked with amount of negative reviews on Ranveli Village, but I suppose it`s even better if those who can not appreciate it will stay away off it. My wife and I spent about 10 days in Ranveli Village. It was the best vacation ever. Even Hawaii (Maui) and Turks and Ciacos could not beat it. Ranveli Village have... More

I love the resort - its not too modern and not too luxury - but I choose a "tropical-island-design" resort and I get what I want: calm place in a small paradise. I love that it was not so big and only few people was there. The room was clean 2 times a day, the food was fine - especially... More

We stayed four nights at ranveli and loved it. The beach is stunning and the snorkeling is great just off the beach. Everyone is very friendly and the service was great. The rooms were very clean and cleaned twice per day. They also try to keep the Mosquitos away. My only complaint is with the full day snorkeling tour we... More

We spent the newyear's week at Ranveli island. The island is small, quiet and really nice. The rooms at groundfloor are on the beach or with seaview, but I think that the first floor room are better with better view and more refreshing in the evenings. The quality of food is good, nor bad nor good, there are always meat,... More

Our experience in Ranveli is memorable. We had so much fun and the place was really relaxing. The foods served were delicious, the staffs were approachable, nice and friendly especially Appu, the resort coordinator. The price and everything is worth it and no regrets at all. Highly recommended and I am surely gonna come back :)

My sister & i stayed here after out tour of Srl Lanka. It was very relaxing with the sea 2 minutes walk in either direction. The reef is spectacular & being able to eat & watch the fish at the same time was very special. The rooms were cleaned twice a day & all the bedding & towels changed every... More

The best thing about this place is the beach and the house reef. The beach is just outside your door and it is all white sand, azure water and a long stretch of reef with lots of different fish to see. Beware of the current though, it can be quite strong and better to use fins. The island itself is... More

Two friends and I went to the Maldives on our February break. It was a great week. The accommodations, while sparse, were comfortable. No TVs and wifi could be patchy. The food was great...no repeats the entire week. However, the limited I times made it seem a little like camp. The water was beautiful, and the weather was awesome. Overall,... More
