We have just returned from a 1 week stay at Jumeirah Vitaveli, and we loved it.
We appreciated the short transfer time by speed boat from Male Airport to the Vittaveli Island. After a long flight, it only took us 20 more minutes to our final arrival.
Having arrived at this breathtaking place, we were warmly welcomed by the general manager in person and a bottle of champagne in our villa. Mr. Huemer, the GM, was very keen in our well-being during our whole stay, he is a real gentleman and a genial host.
We decided to stay at the beach villa on purpose. Its giant private pool and direct beach access convinced us.
Service and Staff is very farseeing, always wearing a smile on their face. Special thanks to Adam, Firag and Sheyam.
The Watersport Center is excellent.. Free canoeing, windsurfing and snorkeling facilities. We enjoyed snorkeling at the House Reef and also took windsurfing lessons. One day, as the weather was unsatisfying, we visited the Gym. It is opened 24 hours, has all kind of cardio machines and weightlifting facilities.
We mostly dined at MU- Beach Bar and Grill. Nice ambience and staff, excellent grilled fish and steak.
There is still work going on. The Presidental Villa is not finished yet. We only found out by accident, during a walk around the island. But the construction didn't affect us at all, no noise, no machines.
Conclusion: Warm, brilliant hosts focus on very few guests, making them feel as if they are staying with good friends, providing a state-of-mind that opens them to new discoveries and new levels of peace.
We'll definitely come back!
