This island is truly beautiful. White sand, turquoise water, and panoramic views of the stunning Indian Ocean. We stayed for 10 nights in July 2014 in a sunset water villa which at this time of year are on the lagoon side (I believe at other times of the year they are on the reef side). We had sun all day,...

We had booked the Diamonds Athuruga with Kuoni and were staying for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The seaplane transfer was very smooth, and when we landed at the resort, a boat picked us up and we were welcomed by the resort manager Stephen. We had booked two nights in the beach villa and 5 nights in the water villa. Beach... More

On arrival on the sea plane we were greeted by Tammy who showed us to our room. Transfer was very slick with no hanging around after a 11 hour flight. Our beach villa No 48 was stunning and approximately two metres from the waters edge. It was very spacious, brilliant air con and very clean. The restaurant was superb with... More

This is the second time that we have visited the Maldives and the first time was amazing so we did have very high expectations. I am pleased to say they were exceeded. Athuruga isn't one of the biggest islands in the Maldives but it has everything that you need. The Reef is great and if you have never snorkelled before... More

This is the most perfect location for a honeymoon. From the moment we arrived it was total heaven. The sea plane to the island, the greeting by the friendly staff, the sophisticated design of the water villas, the turquoise perfect ocean, the lovely food, the brilliant cocktails plus the shop at the hotel where surprisingly I brought the best pair...

Trying to keep our spirits up, we finally arrived to the warmest welcome in Athuruga by one of the service managers Tammy. Shown to our first room of... More

We visited this island for the second time in the beginning May. We again stayed in a beach villa for 7 nights and water villa for the last two nights. We were disappointed again that inspite of giving a room range of eight rooms and recommending this island to 6 of our friends we again didn't get our request. We... More
