Ranveli Village was our honeymoon destination & I must say it was an awesome place to stay. The first sight of Ranveli left me awestuck. The island is small but very pleasant. The weather was just perfect with sunny mornings & sold evenings. Staff is very friendly & attentive. They made every possible effort to make our honeymoon experience exotic.... More

We (couple) went to Ranveli, Maldives in July 2014. For all the people who are looking to spend some quiet, relaxing and cozy time by the beachside, this place deserves a serious consideration. The island is comparatively small w.r.t other islands in Maldives, yet it has that charm in all aspects of a beach side resort. It has a amazing... More

Trip to Ranvelli: After half an hour flying with the seaplane, you have to take a boat for 10 minutes to the island. It's not a realy stunning boat, but it's charming. The spa: Don't go there: scary and arrogant women! The service: We REALY liked the service and the kindness of the staff!! They were really friendly!! Talk to... More

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
