My wife and I stayed at Vakarufalhi in September this year. This was our seventh Maldivian resort and our prime focus is a dive vacation. Vakaru, as it is affectionately called, delivered a solid four star performance. As with all resorts there are good and bad points and always room for improvement. I will try cover as much as possible... More

Extraordinary hotel that exudes both class and luxury while maintaing a down to earth atmosphere. The beach was an endless stretch of white powder sand and the water was crystal clear... the purest and most turquoise i've ever seen! The house reef is excellent with a large variety of healthy corals and an array of marine life like turtles, rays... More

The reasonable price, delicate service and the very perfect sea world! You can enjoy the absolute tranquility in this resort! The beach villa which we stayed in has great view of white beach and crystal-clear ocean. Especially scuba diving was very impressive and the guide(Poe?!) was so nice and perfect kind. I really appreciate for giving us this unforgettable memory!... More

Every maldivian island is unique but from the other perspective it's the same. So what can make your holiday special if you travel a lot and see many beautiful places? If... More

It is a very small,private island -takes you 12 min to walk from one side to another but we loved it. Staff was very friendly, they quickly learned what we prefer to drink so was... More
