We spent a day stayed at this resort, the beach is nice & good for snuggling. There are rooms on the beach side, also have water villa. The water villa seems to have beautiful view. I totally agree that their staff are not friendly & helpful at all. Lunch buffet is fine with reasonable price USD45.

This resort really is more like a three star deal than anything else. Do not expect good service, safe and clean rooms, cool excursions or a smooth stay. They have very unloyal staff. The waitors offered us to buy stolen drinks for half the price. They would not register what we had to drink and eat, and instead steal it... More

I had been in Olhuveli Resort in Feb 2013 for my Honeymoon. It was a wonderful stay. Nice clean beaches. For a vegetarian they have a lot of option in Salads, Pasta, Fruits, Juices, Vegetables, etc. Indian dishes available on request but thats not their speciality. Villas are awesome. I had stayed both Beach Villa for 2 days and Water... More

This was my second visit to maldives and the speed boat transfer took 45 minutes to reach the island. Did not feel so long as I thought it would feel like.

If you are exhausted, and fed up with modern life, you should relax and enjoy in Olhuveli Resort in Maldives. A very small, but beautiful place, suitable for diving, swimming and relaxing in one of the water villas could give you a new energy and positive approach.
