Having been to several other 5 star resorts in the Maldives, we had high expectations of the Viceroy. The questionnaire sent from the resort prior to arrival showed great promise, they asked for our favourite fruit and what size we needed for snorkelling equipment, so they could have it ready waiting for us in the room. I was thrilled as... More

Wow, what a breathtakingly beautiful resort. Even though this was not my first visit to the Maldives, this resort still managed to blow me away. We found all of the staff to be extremely friendly and genuinely eager to please, whether it was reception, room service, the restaurant and even the maintenance staff. The rooms are extremely large and luxurious,... More

Everything about this resort is top notch. We stayed here for a week at a beach villa. It's large, clean, and has more bathrooms than you will probably need. The bonus was having a pool just outside the back door with plenty of shady lounging for total relaxation where you can hear the surf. Our son enjoyed chasing hermit crabs... More

My family and I (wife, two children - 10 and 14) came to the Island to celebrate my wife's birthday. We couldn't have found a more special place - beautiful island, top quality rooms (really high end + comms) - with the fabulous sand and sea on our doorstep. Sailing, unbelievable snorkeling on coral at the shore. The staff are... More

We spent five nights here in March with some friends and it was amazing. Stayed in the beach villa which was gorgous. From the decor to the cleanliness it was faultless. The food was fantastic too. We had one night in the wine cellar with a special menu created for us and it blew our minds, everything was perfect. On... More

Dear Noggie 1970 DXB, Thank you so much for such a fantastic review! I’ve said it before but being such a young resort, there is always room for improvement, however we learn as much from a negative review as we do a positive, as we are told what our guests likes and dislikes are, but hearing such amazing things said...

It was an unforgettable 6 days island paradise vacation at the Viceroy Maldives. As an expat family with a six year-old daughter living in Beijing, we've had opportunities to visit resorts and hotels such as Six Senses, Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental in place like Phuket and Vietnam amongst others, so our expectations of Viceroy was relatively high as we took...

We recently spent four fantastic nights at the Viceroy Resort. The seaplane trip there and back is an adventure in itself. On arrival at the hotel jetty we were welcomed by the hotel manager Andreas who made our stay there very personal and special.

My husband and I just spent a week at this idyllic resort on our 30th wedding anniversary.

"Tropical resort with huts over water" can sometimes play out as somewhat generic. Viceroy Maldives is anything but generic. The resort is a very modern take on the typical tropical, secluded resort category with very fresh and clean decor/overall look and feel. The combination of crystal blue waters in an array of shades with the aforementioned styling resulted in an... More

Had a fantastic stay in the Viceroy Maldives. We have stayed at other 5 star resorts in the Maldives but decided to splash out and try this one. Result! Diving great. Big game fishing was expensive, but with our catch of tuna and mahi mahi served up for dinner it was an excellent experience. Also having 5 dolphins circle the... More
