Just got back from the Maldives and I must say our stay at Filitheyo was amazing. Definitely my best holiday so far. Stayed at the resort for 3 nights and everything about it was wonderful. Staffs were warm and friendly, the room was great, food was yummy, everything was beyond our expectations. We stayed at the water bungalow and it... More

Our second visit to the Maldives, first to Filitheyo. We spent 9 nights here, everything was fabulous. Arriving at the Seaplane port we found our plane ready to depart, these must be the coolest pilots anywhere, wearing short sleeved white shirts, shorts and flip flops or barefoot and of course the obligatory shades! The views are amazing and landing on... More

Transfer from Male is by Sea Plane and it takes about 40 mins and then short boat trip to the island. On arrival we were given a short presentation and then shown to our... More

Out of the several reviews I have written here on Trip Advisor this one is proving to be the most difficult, so maybe everything will become clearer as I progress. We stayed on beautiful Filitheyo for 14 wonderful nights from the 20th June, now I know that the sceptics amongst you shy away from dates that involve travelling to the... More

Second visit to Filitheyo, this time travelling alone. Stayed in water bungalow which is just gorgeous. The sun loungers need a little repair though! Food really good, and my waiter was excellent, so polite and very attentive. Spa once again gorgeous, I had a few treatments. Dive centre. I did quite a few dives, all really good, and the instructors... More

We went for a diving holiday : the diving centre was really good with some great staff, lovely boats, and great diving experiences. We stayed in the water villas which were lovely - nice and peaceful in a beautiful setting. The island itself is also gorgeous and a really special place. Food was good if perhaps not that adventurous -... More
