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

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...

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
