This was our second trip to the Maldives and it took us a long time to decide where to go.
We read every review and finally decided to at book the Jumeirah Dhevanafushi.
It was a tough choice since we had an amazing experience last year at the One and only Rethi Rah and we feared it wouldn't meet our expectations but I must say it definitely did.
From the moment you arrive you can feel everyone's effort to make your stay as memorable as possible.
We have to thank Marc, the GM as he was always interested to know whether there was anything he or his team could do to make us feel at home as well as Aswad, our butler, as he was the most attent polite and friendly companion.
To make this review easier I'll score the hotel in a "maldives fashion" (reef, beach etc..)
Reef: 10 (expect some of the most amazing and untoched corals in the world)
Marine life: 10 even snorkling you can see eagle rays, turtles, sharks etc...
Rooms: 10 One of the best in Maldives (we tried both, ocean and beach and we prefered beach)
Gym/spa: 10 What a view!! I even saw a turtle while I was having a massage. Thank you Som for your magical hands and for fixing my back!
I hope this helps. And I hope to be back some day with our families so they can too experience what has to be one of the most incredible places on earth.
