This place is heaven on earth, save that extra bit of cash and go for a water villa, and definitely a sunset villa. My tip is try avoid villa 1, we thought it was a bit open and lacked privacy as can be seen from beach and walkway. Most of the villas have a little reef just off the deck... More

The island is tiny but very beautiful, the colors of the sea, sand, sky and palm trees were a pleasure to the eyes, we also enjoy views of the sunset and sunrise. Our villa was large and bright, and we could see the sea, sand, and sky from our bed. We went to snorkeling and we could do and see... More

We were fortunate enough to spend the second part of our Honeymoon at Athuruga, and it met and surpassed our expectations in every single way. Being on the seaplane from Male as it comes into land in the lagoon builds up your excitement, which is amplified on the boat ride back to the island - Athuruga may be tiny, but... More

We visit Diamonds Athuruga for the second time. Last year, we went for a week and it was beyond our dream destination and so we decided to go back this year, but this time for 10 days. Who knows, maybe we should aim for 2 weeks next year. What makes this resort perfect for us are the following: 1) it... More

We traveled here the end of June for our honeymoon and spent 10 days on the island. The staff here manage to get the most perfect balance of privacy to helpfulness that I have experienced anywhere.

Absolutely the most amazing experience we ever had! Coming from the US we took a big risk not knowing what to expect on our honeymoon. This resort truly lives up to its standards. I’ve never been to a place where the pictures online don’t do justice. It’s true paradise. We heard the house reef was amazing and picked Athuruga as... More

This is a third consecutive visit . We visited in May and took our chance with the weather. I am not going to go into depth as I have reviewed this resort twice before, I have given this island 5 stars as it is such a beautiful island with no ugly bits, and a perfect lagoon on one side good...

Stayed at Athuruga for 11 nights in July. Arrived by seaplane and met on the jetty by Stephen the Manager (who left while we were there!). We had booked a Water villa and had contacted the resort with requests for reef side, sunset view and a sunny deck - almost impossible to get all these in July. However, we were... More

Warning, lengthy review ahead.... We recently travelled for a two week stay for our honeymoon. This was our secondary choice due to a limited budget after having to change due to construction works taking place at Kuramathi - I say having to change, we opted too because of the tranquility.
