We chose Vakaru for our 6D5N honeymoon and are very glad to have made this choice. To reach this place it took us abt 25 mins via sea plane from the male airport. At the transmaldivian airways counter they were expecting us and had our boarding cards ready. This made getting to the sea planes very easy. On reaching Vakarufalhi,... More

My one and only issue (and it will prevent me returning) is that I was savaged by mosquitos/gnats (not sure what they were) the moment I left the villa even as I showered, i was getting bitten. We ran between the villas to the restaurant to try to avoid them and couldn't sit outside in the evening to have a... More

We stayed in Nov 2014 at Vakarufalhi for our honeymoon and loved it very much. The island is like a little paradise, the staff is really lovely and the food is delicious. Beyond, there is a really lively house reef. We went snorkeling very often and saw so many beautiful fishes, a turtle, rays etc...

My wife had selected this island for a holiday in late January from reviews in Trip Advisor. It turned out to be a resort marvellously administered by one of the most delightful and elegant hotels in the world, the legendary Mount Lavinia in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The island is reached by seaplane which lands at a tiny pontoon in the... More

We were greeted and welcomed by the friendly staffs upon arrived in the jetty with fresh towel. I love their welcome dessert (handmade coconut ice-cream)... More

My wife and myself decided to stay at Vakarufalhi Island Resort for our 5 years Wedding Anniversay. Though the price for the water villa was quite expensive, we decided to pamper ourselves. And upon checking into our room, WOW!! It was fantastic. The room was clean, spacious and cosy. We have direct access into the sea from our water villa... More

Very nice stay. Small and intimacy island. Fantastic service. Absolutely polite staff. Nice beach. Perfect kitchen with very delicious food. I was there for 9 nights - 5 in a beach and 4 in a water villa in September. In my opinion beach villas are better although they are smaller then the water villas and there is no bath. But... More

Although the below list could give a quite negative impression we want to say that altogether we had a pleasant stay in Vakaru. Unfortunately we were not so lucky with the weather it rained every day and for several hours. What we liked: -the small size of the island - the beautiful coral reef only a few meters from the...
