I've been blessed to have visited some of the most wonderful islands in the world. Maldives is up right up there with Tahiti and Fiji in terms of water quality and tranquility. However, Olhuveli in particular is far behind in service and relative value of your money. Starting from the $300/per person charge for the one hour ride to the... More

On the whole it's a good hotel but not a 5 star. Also - hotel needs a refurbishment to update itself to 2015. We paid good money for a water villa, room was ok but bathroom was something out of the 1980s. This is our fifth visit to the Maldives and we had much much better for the price we... More

Absolute paradise. We went here on our honeymoon and it was amazing. When we went for breakfast, honestly I do not know where everybody was on the island. There was always space on the beach. The room was very clean and the view was lovely. We had a beach view room, it was a great view in the mornings. My... More

We visited Maldives the first time. We stayed at the Olhuveli for 11 nights. The resort is very beautiful and all the staff are amazing. We were a bit worried as we are vegetarians. When we got there we met with the chef who reassured us he would look after us and make sure we have vegetarian food. He made... More

We stayed there for 7 nights, this is not my first time in the Maldives and for Maldivian standards this hotel sucks by all means, rooms were old and rusty water, beaches were unclear and dirty for example you would have better visibility and more marine life if you snorkel by the airport than their house reef in the suckerveli....

My wife and I visited Olhuveli Beach & spa resort at the beginning of April 2015. The place is stunning, the people are so polite and friendly and really made us feel welcome. I had decided to do my SCUBA course with their PADI instructors and must say the diving is second to none, however due to unforseen curcumstanses I... More

it's the worst hotel in Maldives in terms of food and service and even hygiene. And We found company in our room which are a couple of cockroaches and a nice little rat. I GAVE THIS HOTEL ONLY ONE STAR because that's what it deserves.
