This was my sixth stay in the Maldives but the first time I've felt tearful when leaving. From the moment we arrived at the Viceroy's transit lounge at Male airport at the start of our stay to the moment the staff lined up on the quay at dawn to wave our seaplane off, this was the most special of all...

Dear BellsDubai, Thank you for sharing such a warm review on TripAdvisor. Knowing the Maldives so well, your criticism is that much more valuable, considering you have a number of other resorts you can compare us to. I have said it before, but we really are very proud of our villa options, and considering most of the team and I... More

Feeling of half cup filled. intimate resort and interesting seaplane experience. The resort is not crowded and resort manager will try to remember and address u by name. Great personal touch. However the wet weather was a real dampener and careful using the steps if u are staying in water villa. U won't wanna slip and fall like me. Avoid... More

So after reviewing over 2 dozen hotel resorts in the Maldives for my finance's surprise 40th birthday holiday I finally selected the Viceroy and have not regretted the decision at all. It has just met and exceeded all our expectations and has been a wonderful trip. Checking in at the seaport lounge made the actual hotel checkin process so simple... More

This was my third time visiting Maldives. I would say that Viceroy overall was not a bad experience.

We recently stayed at the Viceroy with our 5 year old daughter in an over water bungalow. The resort, rooms, and staff are amazing. The resort and rooms are quite modern and contemporary, with very generous living space in the rooms. We can't fault the staff, and they were very tentative to the our daughter - who had a great...

The experience in Viceroy has no complaint at all, in fact it is much better than our expectation. When we first arrive the resorts, Anna's warm smile refreshed from the 50 mins seaplane noisy journey (she was also the one farewell us at the dock). We will not forget your beautiful smile.

We have been to about half a dozen islands in the Maldives before and we looked at quite a few this time, but we really liked the look of the Viceroy from their website. We booked quite late and because it was offseason we managed to get a reasonable deal, they also upgraded us to a duplex villa on arrival.... More

The complete experience was just brilliant. My wife, who was 4 months pregnant, and myself chose the Maldives as a destination for a baby-moon, of sorts, weren't disappointed in the least with our 4-night stay at the Viceroy.

My husband and I had traveled from Boston. It was a long journey and we were tired, hot and a little impatient when we arrived in Male. After a breathtaking flight, the seaplane landed right outside the dock at the Viceroy. The excellent and heartfelt service started right there and it never ended. It never even blinked.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A constellation of islands lay in the shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean, where the last true vision of paradise can be found. Less than a one hour flight from Male, up to the Maldives' uncharted northern edge, beckons an island of singular beauty. Over 17 acres of palm-edged, pristine sand rises Viceroy Maldives, where only 60 villas encircle a lagoon of startling blue.No detail remains unanswered, with Viceroy's unparalleled service enriching the resort's soaring interiors and elemental lounge areas. Five diverse dining venues, including the Treehouse, offer everything from casual beachside cuisine to elegant fare while incorporating Middle Eastern, Asian and European influences. Treatments and yoga at the Ayurvedic spa are balanced by the island's wealth of outdoor activities accessible from the Dive & Water sports Center. ... more   less
