Suggest trying their beach villa and water villa. As the island isn't too big, it wouldn't be too far for you to move but the atmosphere is very different. The beach villa area on the south east end is very tranquil, surrounded by a wide open quiet sea (due to the stone curds blocking the sea wave). The water villa... More

If you are looking for a small piece of paradise, look no further. Vakaru is heaven on earth with beautiful beaches and an amazing house reef with an abundance of coral, fish and turtles. Snorkelling around the island was something special - the house reef is in top condition and the water crystal clear. Both my wife and myself are... More

My husband and I picked this resort due to the raving reviews here on Tripadvisor. The reviews definitely guided us in the right direction. We were pampered from the time we set foot on the island, up to the time they said goodbye when we boarded our seaplane to leave. The overwater villa was amazing. The food was abundant and... More

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

Dear Sandizzzz, thank you for your comment on Tripadvisor. We are happy to note, that generally, you have had a very enjoyable vacation with us. With regards to your alert about mosquitos, I can only agree, that in tropical environment, an effective and regular conduction of fumigation is vital, to protect humans from insect of any nature.

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.
