Vakarufalhi Island Resort Hotel, simply the best! Location, food and overall service. We spent 12 days of pure relaxing for an unforgettable honeymoon. Selected room n°112, a very quiet and nice beach villa. Our bungalow was in front of the seaside, in the extreme left corner of this small and comfortable island. Privacy and confort are guaranteed Italian cuisine with... More

Vacarufali is perfect. We were looking for a sophisticated island, good food, not too much noise, a nice over the water not too modern - Fiametta Viaggi in Milan were perfect and gave us all the advice we needed once they understood what we were looking for. We flew with Neos and booked the extra leg room seats on the... More

The property is a classic paradise atol style hotel. All the bungalows are great, most of all the overwater ones of course. The food is very good, and the service is good, but not excellent. Goos scuba diving around, good diving facilities.

We've just returned from our honeymoon which was two glorious weeks at Vakarufahli - what an amazing place. If you want a small island that is a tropical hideaway you can't go wrong with this one. Even guests we met on the island who had been to other Maldives islands said this was definitely one of the better ones. So... More

There are many reviews of this paradise island - so I dont need to repeat that the staff are fantastic, the water villas are a rock-star experience, food is great, diving is the best that S Ari can offer and snokelling on the house reef a close second to diving. My main gripe is that some reviews focus negatively on... More

Our sixteenth visit to Vakaru and been to many other islands aswell. We pay the premium to come to the Maldives because I am a keen snorkeller, As I am usually alone, the reef needs to be safe, easy to access and interesting. Vakaru ticks all the boxes. Zebra, snowflake, and yellow-mouthed morays, snake eel, TWO stone fish (only ever... More

This is a great resort. The diving is excellent. Whale sharks and manta rays excursions enable you to see these amazing animals up close.. The Italian food is very good. The hotel is comfortable and the staff are very welcoming. The Wi-Fi is slow at times. Great stay with a desert island feel..
