My wife and I discovered the Maldives 6 years ago and have been going there ever since, sometimes 2 or 3 times each year.
We usually like to try different islands but found Fihalhohi has everything we want from a holiday.
The first time we went to Fihalhohi was 4 years ago and can say it was just about average compared to the other islands we had been to.
We went back to Fihalhohi in May and August/September this year and as per my previous review last year and could not believe the difference.
There are a couple of things that would be nice to see changed/upgraded, mattresses and pillows as they are very hard, the bathrooms are still looking a little old and tired. It would also be nice to have some recognition by the island managers for returning guests, this was felt by many returning guests I spoke with from Germany, Italy and France.
If you like to get out and about there are many boat trips to inhabited islands, holiday islands, fishing trips, sunset trips etc.
If you are a scuba diver like my wife and I you will not be disappointed, the house reef is great by day and amazing at night and the dive sites are wonderful. At the moment a 2m Lemon shark has setup home on the south reef and is very comfortable with divers and snorklers. If you snorkel there is lots to see, if you don’t snorkel this is great place to start. For those who are not very good in water the dive centre have floatation vest you can hire, you can also hire snorkelling equipment if you don’t have your own (the dive centre staff are fantastic, they are always happy to help and give advice, to divers and non-divers). There are also lots of water sports activities and a spa centre.
We have been to 9 islands of various ratings and can honestly say Fihalhohi is by far the best and we will be returning.
I would also like to mention Zita the island holiday Rep for First Choice/Thomson as she is fantastic and very helpful.
