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

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...

We, a family of three, bought a Hotelplan package for this Island in the Maldives. Word of mouth was our reason of choice. We spent 8 days in Heaven. The resort is casual enough to make you feel totally in peace with oneself. The staff is wonderful from the Chef Riccardo to Alice the marine biologist. Diving is 5 stars... More

Travelling as honey moon and spending 4 nights living in water villa. Staffs are nice and cheerful. The resort is quiet and the water is so clear! Can't stop to jump into the sea every day. Absolutely worth the price. There are 3 meals plus one tea time per day. Plenty of food choice that you won't feel bored. The... More

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
