Just returned from Holiday island few days back and would want to say that it is really a honeymooners paradise. Got a bit late due to the location but once we reached the spot it was absolute bliss. Empty Beaches, light music, white sand, what else can one ask for. Advantage is you can always hop in another resort called... More

We stayed at Holiday Island for a week and it was so relaxing. After reading all the trip advisor reviews I was totally surprised with the rooms as some people had said they were a bit tired (yes they are) but they were still very clean, comfortable and spacious. The bungalows are situated directly on the beach and the beach... More

We chose this resort for the first week of our honeymoon. It is one of the smaller, more unspoilt and under developed islands in the Maldives and it is for this reason it owes a lot of it's charm. You can walk around the whole thing in about 40 minutes. There is one tiny ugly industrial dock part of it... More

We stayed for two weeks half board and didn't regret the decision at all. The room we stayed in (116) was ideal if you are there to dive - halfway between dive centre and restaurant on the jetty side of the island (not facing Maamgili airport which was not busy). The room was a little tired and could do with... More

Excellent value for money, helpful and friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Rooms were a little basic but still fantastic value for money. Recommend for a good relaxing break that does not cost the earth. Also recommended is the dive centre on the island - very professional and lots to see. We will definately be coming back.

Booked a holiday here based on location& time only i.e it was the South Ari Atoll and April and therefore almost guaranteed chance of whalesharks and manta rays and good diving. Our expectations overall of the entire island were generally low. We were very pleasantly surprised with the island in general. The internal flight & transfer from Male to Maagimli... More

Holiday Island is the place to be if you prefer relaxing on white sand beaches, discovering the sea and enjoying life in slow motion instead of shopping and the buzz of the city. The staff is going further than in most places to make your stay easy and enjoyable. We were met with uttermost friendlyness and humor by everyone, but... More

The transfers from Male airport to the island were scheduled well and ran smoothly, when we arrived at Holiday Island it was beautiful and we were really happy. That faded quickly when we tried to upgrade to all inclusive and were told it was going to cost a further $300 more for the week than we were advised in previous... More

We've been there because we knew the area already and we wanted to do great dives...and we did! Many whale-sharks, mantas and just amazing dive spots! So we were completely satisfy! Concerning the rooms, be aware to have one from nr. 140 to 169! This is the best side of the island. If you land on the back side, you... More
