It was a great destination for those who want to be away from it all. A true connection with nature and yourself. The food was excellent and the staff were extremely friendly, courteous and obliging. They were very well versed with life and experiences in the Maldives.

I went to Makunudu for a friends 40th and it was my first time in the Maldives. The Maldives looks ever better in real life than it does in photos and Makunundu did not disappoint. From the moment we were picked up by boat from the airport it was just a dream. The boat stopped half way as a pod... More

They refurnished the bungalows, the bar and the restaurant. Also the beach chairs are brand new. Everything looks nice. The food is delicious and the staff very... More

Several disclaimers here for the sake of justice and fairness. The natural beauty of the island and the ecosystem around the island are amazing. Makunudu house reefs offer the best snorkeling experience that we have ever had with my wife anywhere, and there are many great diving sites around the island with a great dive shop and crew on premise....

Just returned from a three week visit for the 5th time and Makunudu didn't disappoint. The rooms have been refurbished with luxurious bedding, lots more storage and new furniture which is still in keeping with the rustic charm of the island which keeps us returning year after year. The bar, reception and dining room all have new furniture and give... More

We visited in early October. This was our 3rd visit to the Maldives, but our first to Makunudu. A relaxing and peaceful island with good snorkeling. Stunning underwater scenery with beautiful corals and fish, including turtles and reef sharks. Beware of currents- quite strong at times. Good quality food, well presented and enjoyable. All staff exceptionally friendly and very helpful... More

This was our fifth time in the Maldives and we were looking for a simple island without water bungalows and without the over-the-top trendy/loungy design being done in so many of the resorts here. All in all we were really happy with Makunudu: -The resort has been tastefully designed, low key, unpretentious but with nicely thought out spaces. The furnishings... More
