i spent 5 nights here with my boyfriend for a short escape and the overall experience was amazing. White sand like flour, great food with an Italian chef, beautiful overwater villa with dedicated beach, simply perfect island. The room was clean, near the beach and the restaurant, but also very quiet. The staff was very friendly, though the waiters did... More

We spent a week at Vakaru for our Honeymoon in the middle of Feb. After a short, but noisy, seaplane flight of approx 30 mins and a 10 min boat ride we arrived at the island. We received a warm welcome and were taken to reception to complete all the necessary paperwork and check in. We were greeted in reception... More

We stayed in a water villa for 6 nights between Christmas and New Years, 2014. The privacy, size and luxury of the water villas makes it very much worth the extra money compared to the beach villas. Although I heard people complaining about mosquitoes, they were not a problem in the water villas, just on the island among the trees.... More

It has been a while since we went on our last holiday with my husband so we were choosing very carefully. We need a week off, a total relax time at the sea side. So the Maldives were one of the main destinations of our interest.We found different offers online, but after reading the review of Vakarufalhi decided to try... More

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

I would say it's a lucky bonus night for my honeymoon trip to Maldives. I were staying in the neighbor resort that offer us an Island hopping trip to Vakarufalhi Island Resprt for a night. 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
