From the moment we stepped off the seaplane till the time we had to leave, Constance Moofushi impressed us every day.Wine tasting in the sea as fish swim between your legs, kayaking on the blue waters, sunsets melting into the ocean, waves lapping at the legs of our water villa as the tide changes, sunset fishing off a boat. The wine selection alone (over 140 wines and champagnes) was enough to win us both over but then the knowledge and professionalism shown by each of the sommeliers every day was just as impressive.Nothing was ever a problem, everything was made very easy for us. We ate an array of delicious food every day in the buffet and in the Alizee restaurant, always accompanied by a bottle of wine better than the last. The staff at Moofushi really make you feel like you're a world away from home. They are generous and always smiling and we'd like to pay particular attention to our waiter Adam, who knew what we wanted before we'd even asked for it, Piyal and Nash for their excellent wine choices, their knowledge, and last but not least, Ella from the dive centre. I was scared of diving, never thought I'd ever get past snorkelling but after a session in the pool for confidence after an initial dive to see if I liked it I opted to get past my fear. Without her clear instruction, thorough attentiveness to me, calm supportiveness and expertise, I don't think it would have been so easy and definitely as much fun. Thanks to Ella, I have my open water PADI and enriched air certificate and can't wait to dive again! Its something to be said though, that learning to dive in one of the most beautiful reefs full of so many fish in a one on one teacher/student experience is much more motivating and enjoyable than learning in a group environment in an indoor pool. I'm so grateful I had such a wonderful teacher as Ella to make something I was fearful of an exciting and enjoyable experience. The whole stay at Moofushi was amazing, with the staff service being second to none. One other thing to add that we learnt as soon as we arrived and were extremely surprised at, was that having the all inclusive package, that also included the doctor and any meds (in my case antibiotics for a wisdom tooth deciding not to heal well) were included as well. Five days of meds, all included. Every day staff asked me how I was showing genuine concern, even the kitchen giving me my own bowl of cloves to keep to help with pain relief with everyone being extremely attentive. Moofushi is a place where you can meet other couples and have long lunches in the sun with them or have your own intimate dinners if wanting that quiet time alone. Meeting others as you go for dives off the boat or simply walking down the steps of your water villa straight into some of the most brilliant snorkelling we had ever seen in the mornings. The villas are not large but are accommodating and the two things we probably missed were a bath and a Nespresso machine. But every day our room was tended to and the fridge restocked. They even changed our Chardonnay to Sauvignon Blanc for our stay due to our preference. Sometimes in the bar after dinner, I think they could have benefit from another staff member as it sometimes seemed as if they were understaffed. But little things like that don't matter so much when overall our stay was relaxing and stress free and we forgot about everything else for 10 days ( except the World Cup which was played on a screen every night there was a game=happy hubby ). I would easily go back to Moofushi and recommend it to anyone as we were recommended it by our friends as well.
