“Wish we had picked another Island for our Honeymoon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

We went to the island for our honeymoon in August 2011. We we arrived we fought WOW. From other people going to the maldives and what they had said we where expecting to be treated like Royality. But we where far from it. We felt if you had money and where able to afford the water villas then you where treated well. We stayed in a bungalow next to the water villas and tried to get on a golf buggy when we where going to dinner at night and we where refussed and we where taken back as it was our first night there and we weren't told by our rep that we couldn't go on them. The restaurant staff where lovely. But felt the reception/management staff where not. The shops on the island where very expensive so take plenty repelant/toiletries. I was bitten from head to toe and i dont know what it was, my husband had a few bites also. Our bathroom was outside which was ok but the roof wasn't clsoed over so iv someone wanted to look over they could if they climbed up. Which made me on edge. We stayed there for 14days and a lot of them nights i was sure that there was bugs in the bed, so i slept on top of it with a jacket on top of me. The trips that you could go on where ok but very expensive again. The room/hotel was meant to be a 4star accomodation but i would say it was 3star. The rooms where very plain and basic. Overall i wish we had picked another island for our honeymoon, Another couple we know went to the maldives but on a different island for their honeymoon and they fully enjoyed it. We wouldn't got back to the maldives as soo expensive and our experience wasn't as good as what we fought it was going to be also alot of money to get us their and after 3years of saving up we wish we had gone somehwere else for our honeymoon!

Amazing place, no shoes policy and very very chilled out. We had the all inclusive deal which included all food at the main buffet and one of the restaurants, all local drinks and snacks. Perfect white beaches all around the tiny island, snorkelling was amazing in the crystal clear water, and plenty of shade from the huge palm trees when the sun was too hot. We watched the fruit bats flying around as the evening arrived, we were sat in the swim up bar! A very good value gem shop (authenticated there and verified when we went back to the UK) and we purchased a beautiful aqua marine gem stone (which we had made into my engagement ring), along with a lovely london blue sapphire (both the colours of the sea there). The staff there were very discrete and helpful, appearing whenever we needed anything.
The accommodation was very spacious and the outside shower in the bathroom of our bungalow was perfect after a sunny day. Would love to go back one day.

Room Tip: We had the bungalow facing the sea and it was amazing.

Poor management really wasted 1 1/2 days of our 4 day stay at this resort. Rooms not ready on arrival at midnight after traveling for 24 hours to get there. Adjoining room had a group of women who loudly arrived in at 3am the night we arrived moving furniture around on tiled floor - our kids were meant to be in that room but this was not sorted out prior to our arrival. Make sure you know the people in adjoining room as rooms are noisy. Front desk Manager lied with regard to boat transfer off resort. What they don't tell you is that they only want to do 2 transfers a day. One early and one late so while check out is 12noon you are expected to have your gear out of room & ready by 6am. This means you can end up spending the last day of your holiday sitting around Male Airport. The Maldivian staff only too willing to please, it's the management that really detracts from the overall service level. Having said all that, the Maldives is truly Paradise.

Room Tip: Don't have an adjoining room unless you know who is in it.

This island is all you need for an excellent holiday from the prompt efficient pickUp at the airport the staff anicipate your needs and it's there. we holidayed with thomson and we enjoyed everything all inclusive the staff were more than attentive. I would recommend this holiday to anyone wanting a total get away from it all break the. Room was excellent the beaches wonderful the beach bar service refreahments freely available each day staffed by pleasant amiable bar tenders. The rep was most helpfull during our stay and the island increased the inusibve. Benefits while we there all i'n all the best holiday ever can't wait to return. The bootees are needed for the coral debree i'n the water i'n some spots and snorkel and mask an absolute must use your ear plug to prevent swimmers ear the reef sharks ard rays are joy to watch each night at the feeding sessions i can not praise this place enough

This was my first trip to the maldives but my partner second. We where picked up by speed boat to take us to the island and what a fab way to start the holiday and the best way to wake you up after a 10 hour flight.
From the moment we arrived there we where treated like king and queen. Nothing was to much trouble. We started off our week in a beach bungalow which is just foot steps away from the beach. You can wake up to the sound of the sea.
We didnt really use the pool as it seems pointless when you have a beautiful sea in front of you and there is no way to descirbe the fish, the colours of them hurt your eyes.
The island is very clean and there is always men cleaning all day long.
Our rooms where also cleaned twice a day.
The rooms are very clean and spacious and the outside shower is lovley.
The food is nice and there is lots of it!!! Everyday has a different themed style of food. We where given on waiter called Sherife who look after us for the whole two week, he made sure our glasses where never empty and always left us little animals made out of palm leaves and one day even spend 3 hours decorationg our table with fresh hand picked flowers.
We did a fishing trip and always a day trip to the capital of Male which i highly recommend, dont be worried about feeling out of your comfort zone as you get a tour guide to take you around.
For the second week we treated ourselves and upgraded to the ocean villa's and i only have one word...... PARADISE.
We had our own servent who looked after use bringing up nibbled every eve, champagne, fruit and choclate on arrival. You can even borrow DVD's from reception to watch on the dvd player!!!
We had our own private balcony and steps to the sea which added a lovley personal touch.
The only thing i would say is that we where both bitten quite bad but you half expect it in a climate like that but just make you take plenty of bite cream.
Dont listen to the people moaning about some unclean area's, we did find them but they where in the staff quaters and no where in view or even near the main part of the island.
Overall it was the best holiday i have ever been on and i would recommed this island to anyone who wants to relax and chill our for two weeks!

Hudharanfushee Island itself is lovely especially the beaches and the gardens are well maintained.
Also the staff were friendly and helpful. Whilst we did enjoy our stay, we really felt that the facilities in general were extremely basic and run down and certainly nowhere near 4 star quality.
Our Bungalow no 217 was very basic and was badly in need of refurbishment. Some of the tiles on the floor were loose and rocked when you walked on them. The bed linen was grey, and it smelled like something had died under the bed. The bathroom was shockingly bad with cracked sink, mouldy walls and brown painted warped plywood around the bath. The outside shower was reached by a couple of stepping stones across an ugly scattering of type 1 road stone.
In the Main Hotel building, the swimming pool looked nothing like it does in the pictures on the Thompson website, it was tinged green with algae and had ugly dark patches on the bottom where the white rendering had come away and had been patched with ordinary cement. The steps into the pool were a jerry built wooden affair painted with white gloss paint and the deck around the pool was warped and uneven so that your sun lounger bounced up and down when someone walked past. There were no cushions on any of the sun loungers (even the ones around the pool) making it very uncomfortable to stay by the pool for any length of time and consequently very few people did.
This was not our first trip to the Maldives and we will surely go again but not to this resort unless the owners are prepared to bring the facilities back up to an acceptable standard.

Before we went on holiday we always check the reviews on Trip advisor ,after reading some of the comments i was quiet concerned that this was not going to be a holiday to remember for the right reasons.How wrong i was, please take my fellow travelers reviews with a pinch of salt or table spoon if you wish.We never found any of the things that we had been warned about on the reviews.It may be that the management had taken action to resolve the issues already .But what we found was a Hotel with staff that carred about you, very polite and every thing we wanted or asked for we got ,Great well done to the team at Hudhururan Fushi.
Not wanting to sound like a snob but the general moans that i did get to experience by some of my fellow holiday makers were about food ,Well if they take into account that they are in the Maldives in the middle of the Indian ocean and every thing has to be imported this does cause a slight restriction on avalibility of different dishes and products then may be they might think before commenting . May be Spain would have been a better option for them to take there holiday. I would sergest that next year they can get there English breakfast ,fish and chips and may be a kebeb on the costa del sol instead of trying to convert this wonderful Island in to Benidorm .
Beaches were great very quiet ,sea was very shallow and great for snorkeling.Went on a few of the fishing trips had a great time.You do only get beer and local spirits in the bar on the All inclusive option but the local beer is great we always found somthing to drink and eat and most of all never got disterbed by any one when we were on the beach ,just what i was looking for .The spar offered 3 massages for $200 us, best value offer both me and my wife enjoyed all of the facilities at the Hotel. I would recomend this Hotel.
