We actually booked in 2020, but it got cancelled. We rebooked through the website and got good deals in September 2021. They added the seaplane transfer on the website, but you only pay a deposit first. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your arrival date. Regarding COVID, masks are worn by staff only. Guests are not required to wear masks. Hand sanitizer is available everywhere. Shoes are almost never worn by anyone! They offer PCR tests for $50pp and results come back in a day. Everything was amazing - the convenience of the phone app, scenery, cleanliness, snorkeling, staff, restaurants. I was a huge fan of all the fresh fruits available at Canneli breakfast - lychee, grapefruit, mangosteen, watermelon, dragon fruit, kiwi, mango. The main reason I came here was to visit 5.8 Undersea Restaurant. It was absolutely magical. The views were so great - it doesn’t really matter where you sit. The dinner food was tasty and aesthetically pleasing. Lastly, I highly recommend handline fishing. Nabeel was great! Yoga with Nhandini was amazing!! I brought travel adapters, but it wasn’t necessary in the rooms. I would want to book a photography package next time!

The Maldives was a bucket list place. One I dreamed about but never thought we would actually get to. However, for the big 5-0 my husband made my dreams come true! A surprise trip to Hurawalhi!! However, from the moment of arrival, Hurawalhi surpassed my dreams!! Mariia, our local host, was beyond amazing!! She was always one step ahead of us, ready to meet our needs - before we even knew we "needed" anything! She was beyond helpful and always there but not at all intrusive. We truly loved her and wish we had a "Mariia" back at home!!! Mariia made sure we enjoyed everything the resort had to offer: 5.8, the undersea restaurant....we truly have no words. Just do it!!!!! You won't be disappointed and it truly is an experience like no other!! The spa. Uh-may-zing! Our over the water hut....which could never be described as a hut!!!!!!! (We have actually tried finding the mattress and bedding in the states!!!!!!) The food. The bars. Dream Island. The snorkeling. Just....everything! Surrounded by beauty, and longing for nothing, Hurawalhi certainly was beyond our wildest dreams!! The resort and people are beyond amazing!! After, you will be like us...beyond grateful for the memories and longing to go back!!!!!

Went to Hurawalhi with my husband for our honeymoon. The whole experience was so zen full and amazing. The staff was so kind. The villa was luxurious, we loved the private pool (especially for night swims). They had nice activities. The food was good in general, nice and big breakfast buffet. However, most of the Italian dishes needed more seasoning. Would absolutely recommend this place.

There were no weak points to this entire experience. Literally full of once in a lifetime experiences. Great food, people and wildlife every step (swim) of the way. Sharks, rays, bats and turtles oh my! Recommend that everyone does this at least once as I hope to get to enjoy it again. PS, bring a hat to protect your face from the sun.
