From the moment we arrived at Male airport to the very last moment we were checked back into our return flight, the service has been exceptional. Truly the trip of a lifetime for us. A big shout out to Yvonne, the best butler at Vakkaru (in our humble opinion 😜) who anticipated our every desire and took such good care of us. From arranging all our reservations to waiting for us at the jetty with the buggy at ready when we got back from our dives (because she noticed we did not bring our bikes). If only we could kidnap her and take her back to London with us. The resort itself is as beautiful as the pictures. All the facilities are either brand new or extremely well maintained. From the games room at coconut club to the spa facilities, we always had something to keep us busy. A shoutout to OC, the best photographer in Maldives and our pingpong, fussball and pool buddy who kept us entertained in the evenings. Many of our highlights were organised by the team at Splash. Thank you to Seb for the refresher course and Aslam the best dive guide who kept us safe on all our dives and generously shared all his underwater pictures. Snorkelling at Hanifaru bay, another experience of a lifetime. Ahmed at watersports, thank you for generously sharing all your diving knowledge of Maldives. The food. AMAZING!!! We will miss being greeted each morning at Amaany by Gie and Angel. The kindest and warmest souls you will ever meet. The breakfast spread is generous and top quality. As are the all the fine dining dinners. From the freshest fish to steak that could rival goodmans in London, we have definitely put on a few kgs. 😅 Finally thank you to Rose, Ghina (the most talented lady who hand made our rings!) and all the team who planned and organised the best day of our lives yet and one we will remember forever. Vakkaru, you have been a dream. Beyond exceptional service, amenities, food, our favourite aspect of the resort is the people. Warm and genuine. I’m sure there are a few names we’ve missed, thank you for taking such good care of us. We felt truly at home and now leave with many new friends! It is expensive no doubt. But you get what you pay for. Lot of love, Kheyee and tom

Vakkaru Resort highly exceeded our expectations! What a stunning Resort with very authentic Staff and lots of activities and plenty of food options. My wife and I stayed at Vakkaru Resort for 7 nights / Half-Board in an Overwater-Villa. The Overwater-Villa is beautifully designed, has all possible amenities that you can think of, is over >140qm with enough privacy to the neighbouring Villas. The Service is coming twice a day and is cleaning the room always leaving a little sweet treat on the table. Every Villa has their own Butler - I can't think of a more hospital person than our Butler Yvonne. Yvonne is a shinny star at Vakkaru - she took care of everything, anticipated wishes and helped me a lot with an injury (jumped on a coral) arranging everything with the Doctor. We can't Thank Yvonne enough for the great work she has done. But also the entire staff of Vakkaru is amazing - the waiters, cleaning staff. The whole crew is authentic and love what they do - this makes the special Charme of Vakkaru. The Underwater Experience is great - just a few meters away from the Villas you can already experience lots of colourful fish. Vakkaru offers great Diving facilities and Water-Activities (Thanks to Sebastien, Flo, Kama, Tanya). Last but not least - the Food: We have booked Half-Board which is highly recommended. Five Restaurants offer great Dinner. Beside Breakfast everything is served at the table. We enjoyed the amazing Japanese Kitchen at Lagoon Bar. At Restaurant Vakku Grill you have Maldives Feeling at it's best with tables in the Sand. I can fully recommend Vakkaru resort - the Hotel is expensive but offers the highest possible Quality. We will come again and Thank Vakkaru and the Team for this wonderful holiday.

We had an unforgettable experience at Vakkaru. The island itself is beautiful, extremely lush and the amenities have been built around the existing coconut trees thus preserving a very Robinson-like feeling. The beach is wide and made of beautiful white sand, and the complex is blessed with a house reef and a blue hole easily accessible as well as a sandbank. We stayed 3 nights in a Beach Villa with pool and 4 nights in an Overwater Villa with pool. Both accommodations were simply amazing, spacious, well furnished with a great attention to details and overall, above our expectations (the website does not do them justice). The days were blessed with fantastic weather, early morning swims, great breakfast on the beach, walks around the island with the local heron, snorkeling on the local reef/blue hole (which is surprisingly active and plentiful) and excursions, water sport activities, spa treatments, great food and drinks at the many restaurants and bars…7 days went by in the blink of an eye, we would have happily stayed longer. However, what made Vakkaru truly amazing is their fantastic team of friendly, positive and helpful staff, it simply would not have been the same without them. A special thank you to: Luba - our amazing butler Ahmed - ass. director of F&B Didier - guest experience manager Ibrahim - Vakkaru restaurant manager Gee - Amaany restaurant Highly recommend!
