My best friend and I have just returned from 5 days in this little piece of Paradise! Eriyadu Island Resort consistently exceeded our expectations throughout our entire stay!
Before this trip, I made it a point not to read the negative reviews this resort has received because I didn't want it to sway my decision and this has got to be one of the best decisions that I have ever made.
The island is not for people that would like to party every evening or for those that are used to 5 star accommodations. The rooms are basic but very clean (they cleaned our rooms twice a day, including the turn down service each night). The food at the restaurant caters to all tastes so you can rest assured that you won't leave hungry. You can spend hours at the bar on the deck. The staff are friendly and always keen to help.
Because this island is so small, it is very easy to bond with other guests. This made our stay even better as we met some lovely people who were there purely because of their love for the ocean.
The house reef is unbelievable and out of this world. For someone who is terrified of the water, snorkeling at this resort gave me the opportunity to experience the beautiful corals and sea life without having to swim too far. The people at the Dive Centre are extremely professional.
Overall, this has been one of the best vacations that I have ever had. If and when I do return to the Maldives, I will definitely be staying at the Eriyadu Island Resort again!
