I'm not one, be it business or family vacations to require a lot of service. I need just a few things, nice clean bed, coffee in the morning, beach, pool... to call it a great stay and HIR managed to provide those things quite well. I agree, it's expensive, but you should know that going into a stay in Maldives.... More

We stayed in this resort for 9 days. It felt like we got stranded on this island resort and I could not wait to get out. The room (called a sunset villa) was shabby, the furniture were old, the wi-fi was so slow, it was like going back 10 years. The beach was rocky, pebbly, nothing like the torquoise, white... More

Dear Sudarao. Thank you for choosing Herathera Island Resort, Maldives as your preferred destination for your holiday and taking time off your busy schedule to pen down these thoughts. Indeed, Herathera Island Resort is unlike the typical island resort in Maldives. It is an indigenous resort to spend time strolling or pedaling through rustic roads under swaying coconut palms and...

This island is absolute paradise! I couldn't stop taking photographs because I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. The sunrise and sunset every day was also incredibly spectacular. However, the resort is too big. The hotel does cover the entire island but it means to get anywhere you have to use the golf buggies and these are difficult to find!... More

We had a great week long stay. Sharon and Eeba(sorry about the spelling if it's wrong) from the Dive Shop were great. We saw a ton of really cool wild life, Turtles, Manta Rays Dolphins etc.. Overall the resort was great with great staff in every facet. The only improvement I would recommend would be faster internet.

We traveled to the Maldives for my birthday celebration in late January and early February. Overall, the resort is absolutely lovely. Our first impressions were favorable. All of the attendants and staff were pleasant, with the exception of one manager in the reception area. I assume that his inexperience and age were a factor with him being so off putting.... More
