We loved our stay here. The place is amazing and the staff is very friendly. The houses are very close to the beach and you have easy access to the beach, beach bar, adventure sports etc. We would love to go back.

This is the first time my friends and I visited Maldives and I would say that we had a good time staying in Holiday Island Resort. The waiters at the coffee house and restaurant are all very friendly... In the restaurant whereby we were assigned to a table with our own waiter Pandi... He was very attentive and remember our...

Having only just returned back to the UK after a holiday at this resort in May, I have to say that I was blown-away by my stay. I was a bit un-sure what the weather would be like as May is supposed to be the start of one of the monsoon seasons. We had one day of rain, it rained... More

For us it was our first Maldivian experience, therefore you will find in this review a lot of details, just as I would have needed prior to making our choice. So: there are two islands, belonging to the same company: Holiday Island (smaller, cheaper) and Sun Island (bigger, more expensive). For instance, the same bottle of 1,5 L of water... More

The waters are lovely and clean, very warm. But please note that there is not a pool at this resort - but then you have a lovely ocean to swim in. Take reef shoes with you as the coral just on the first part of entry can be very hard on your feet. We found that communication was hard as... More
