Not being the resort-holiday lovers, we decided to spend 10 days at Olhuveli Beach and Spa Resort nevertheless to recover from a high-stress work project. Organization and transportation was good, although at the airport in Male, it took us some time to find the right boat transfer (we had to ask around and wait for 15 min, not a big... More

Stayed in july and had a wonderful time. Beautiful, peaceful location. Pleasant well maintained accommodation. Stayed in deluxe water villa.....could have paid more to stay in a jacuzzi villa but why have a jacuzzi when youve got the crystal clear waters of the lagoon a few steps away? Food was ok.... the best thing about this resort was the friendly and... More

stayed for only 1 night at olhuveli. here are some tips. if u stay in the water villa, try to get either rooms 310 or 311. they have direct access to the sand bank. another tip is to wait at the beach near plankton grill sometime between 430-6 pm. normally, black-tip sharks swim near the beaches there. the person who...

We went for 3 nights, just for the scuba diving. But OMG, it was so much more than that! The pictures just don't do it justice, as in reality everything looks so much better.

This was a last minute decision for our honeymoon, and we were lucky enough to get the last "honeymoon villa" available. Going to the Maldives is not a cheap option, and even less when you are in the middle of nowhere. Be ready to spend whatever is in your wallet.... In any case, I highly recommend the honeymoon villa- just... More
