The property has everything even the most demanding traveler would require. Once you are there you don't have time to get bored. The reef is 100 yards from the shore with plenty of wildlife - even turtles and manta rays. Diving is a must. The food was exceptionally good, dare say awesome. The villas are clean and perfectly located.

This was our first visit to Maldives. Royal Island is a perfect hotel with excellent service and food. My advices to visitors: 1. Stay min 9 days. 7 are not enough. 2. Don't take a lot of clothes. No any shoes. 3. Dive. It's amazing experience. 4. Do at least one massage in the spa centre.

Maldives are a dream for everybody and now I know why! The resort is the only resort in this small beautiful island. It has everything you need for the best relaxing time you could imagine. People staff are friendly at the right distance to keep your privacy safe. Sea water is clear with a variety of tropical fishes all around.... More

my first trip to Maldives. I think i was somewhat lucky with the choice. In the 7 days I spent in the resort the weather was exceptionally good. The beach villa was perfectly located in the South side of the Island. Very functional, well kept and absolutely clean. Ideal for nice sleep. With few steps outside the villa I was... More

I and my wife were guests in this wonderful resort in the last week of December 2014. The Christmas Eve dinner was fantastic. Otherwise also right from day 1 we were treated very nicely. The villa was superb, right on the beach. Lots of privacy, especially for a couple. The waiter assigned to our table was courteous all the time.... More

Royal Island is the perfect destination for a detox, relaxing and sportive vacation. We spent there 7 nights. The food is fresh and delicious, the excursions are well organized and the beach is just in front of the bungalow. We were in room number 118 e the sun was there from 9 am to 14.30 pm. I really recomend this... More

In most evaluation people speak about Maldive, not about the resort, it doesn't help other travelers. I tried to be more detailed. My wife and I have spent a week in the resort between January 4th and 11th 2015 . The coral reef is very damaged, still full of sand, few fish perhaps from the tsunami of 2004. Bungalow was... More

I visited Royal Islands Resort & Spa in December 2014 and i must say that it has been one of my most enjoyable trips. The food is of top class and the staff are very kind and well spoken. The back door of the villa opens directly towards the beach which was cool. Everyday there was a different theme for... More

Very nice resort and kind staff! Wonderful spa! But I need to mention some irregularities for AI: be carefoul at minibar because they will find ways to charge some things even if you don't consume them or you think they are included!!! All the prices are going to be with fees applied, so be careful for everything you order or... More

Royal Island Resorts is owned by Villa Hotels, one of the largest companies in Maldives. So while it is a 5* hotel, it doesn’t really have an international chain backing it up (for example like – Intercontinental or Best Western), and hence there is a very tiny bit of falling short of expectations, but there are many positives from this...
