We chose Constance Moofushi after a lot of research for my hubby's special birthday this year and it couldn't have been anymore special !!!!!!
It's difficult not to repeat the superlatives that many other visitors have mentioned already.
This is a special island where from the moment you land, you are made to feel welcome.
We booked a senior water villa which was extremely clean, spacious, comfy large bed, large balcony area with seating and sun lounges and steps giving you direct access to the sea and local reefs, in fact it was just perfect! Waheed did a fantastic job of looking after our villa during our stay, he greeted us in passing every morning, with a smile and asked if there was anything extra we needed ... great service Waheed - thank you! The villa was perfect, we especially liked the shower room (with folding doors) opening onto the outside and the outdoor bath.
We pre booked several experiences prior to our arrival and added a couple more whilst we were there.
CINEFUSHI - private open area cinema under the stars!
We loved this experience, you get to choose your own movie, from a selection of about 26 ( there's something there for all tastes) they set up an area on the beach with large sofa bean bags, plants, lighting etc... You get canapés, popcorn a large selection of drinks (beer, water, coke) and a bottle of Prosecco! They even visit you half way through the movie to offer you ice cream (which I couldn't resist) We loved every minute and it was a fantastic experience.
ALIZEE WINE & DINE - private dinner on the beach
We met with the head chef Richard a couple of days before to discuss our food tastes and Nash head of the Sommelier team, to discuss the wine prior to our dinner.
The chef prepares a menu, which you get to review and agree. Then on the evening of your dinner Nash paired the wine with the food its was delicious, great food with a great choice of wines (from Nash) that complimented our meal. PERFECT!
SANDBANK BREAKFAST -the opportunity was too good to miss. We were taken by boat to a small offshore sandbank, where a table, parasol and breakfast had earlier been set up by the F&B team. Rifkhan stayed for a short time to serve some breakfast and open a bottle of prosseco, then we were passed a mobile phone and asked to ring when we were ready to return. I think we spent a couple of hours out there. In addition to breakfast we took the opportunity to do some more snorkelling in the shallower waters surrounding the sandbank. This was amazing, having your own bit of island (sandbank lol) all to our selfs.
SUNDOWN CELEBRATION. Yes you can watch the sunset anywhere on the island, but on your own little section of beach with Canapés and Champagne, sat in the blissful surroundings of Moofushi, was another fantastic experience. We did this on our last evening at Moofushi and as we thought and at the time it was the perfect ending to our holiday. Having said that, when we left sundown celebrations we made our way to Manta restaurant for dinner and to our surprise Rifkhan had set up a table for us on a private jetty away from other diners. The table had been decorated with beautiful flowers with surrounding lighting. It even brought tears to my eyes, thank you Rifkhan and KD.
A part from all these wonderful activities we also enjoyed a free snorkelling boat trip, went wine tasting with the Sharks, a free dinner at ALIZEE and snorkelled every day in different areas off the island.
Would we return to Moofushi?... without a doubt.....In fact I'm already trying to persuade my husband that every birthday is special and all our birthdays should be spent on this beautiful island.
Finally a massive thank you to Hassan Rifkhan, KD, all the F&B team. Nash, Raul, Dimitri, and the sommelier team, and a BIG thank you to all the staff at Moofushi for their fantastic service, friendliness and kindness shown during our stay.
Rifkhan we hope the Hook Riders won the tournament?
Leaving Moofushi was a wrench for us, but we will be back ...
