Hotel's Favorite
We just came back from our holiday and already miss the leisure days in the Indian ocean. As “Maldives addicted” we have stayed in so many hotels since 2005 that we just stopped counting at some point. I don’t write a review every time but this time it’s a must. First of all, I want to say a big thank you to the GM Mr Srikanth Devarapalli, a very kind man and true professional! Thanks to him we had the chance to visit this beautiful island and to experience one of our greatest holidays. What makes the resort so special: 1. All the island is with such a lush greenery, it’s like a jungle. At the moment you arrive you are captured by its beauty. 2. Fantastic house coral reef. It starts from the main restaurant and you can enjoy right up to the end of the water villas. Full of fishes, sharks, two times we saw a turtle and lobsters hiding under a big coral. Exceptional! 3. Restaurants! Every day different options but still we were every day having lunch in our favourite Beach grill! You have the shadow in the sunny days but in the evening all tables are out on the sand for a dinner under the stars/palms :) There are two restaurants which are nestled in the “jungle”, surrounded by bushes and trees - Le Asiatique and Amazonico. In the Asian we witnessed a great show at the Teppanyaki- the cook was juggling with a raw egg, then threw it into his hat and pulled out a chicken instead. The kids were watching with their mouths open all the time. The South American restaurant is Amazonico, delicious food accompanied by the sounds of latin music and guitars. I have to say that everywhere we had so so delicious meals, very beautifully arranged. Nearly most of the evenings there were organised special private dinners on the beach. The preparation starts from the afternoon when the staff are carving the shapes of mantas or hearts in the sand, then light them up and it looks really majestic in the night. The cinema under the stars was also booked almost every night. A big sofa bed is moved on the beach and the screen is put in front so only the ocean is behind. They also organise once per week a Gala dinner at the main restaurant. We were very surprised as trust me not in every hotel they put so much efforts. All the tables from the restaurant were put outside on the beach, decorated, there was a live music too, kids running around, it felt like a New Year’s Eve party. Grill stations were also settled and there was a big choice of fish and meats and whatever you may wish. 4. We had an outstanding accommodation. The villas are large, comfortable, always clean. The designers have made a very clever decision about the roofs of the houses, also there are flowers on the walls even of the water villas. We enjoyed so much riding on the bicycle around. 5.The Spa is absolutely fantastic. All massage rooms are actually very exotic cabanas with names of flowers, I even had the feeling that I am somewhere in Malaysia... 6. Kids club fortunately is open all day, no closures at all. They were full with activities. Our younger child was so happy every time I took him there. The kids enjoyed movies with popcorn, making bracelets, feeding the fish on the jetty, making cocktails and pizzas and so many other games. 7. Something that impressed me very much was the hotel application on the phone. Once on your phone, you can actually do everything from here - book and cancel reservations, view the menus of the restaurants ( even the kids menus are different ) , get all the info you need. I remember something similar, this high quality, on brand new cruise ship two years ago, so much things, so easy to work with. I look at my review now and I understand it is probably the longest “speechless” opinion but I really wanted to share all this stuff. I highly recommend this property because it is new, modern, with a very good management in all departments, great food, rich wine and drinks selection. All in all the hotel combines everything that I have ever seen in the other hotels, they didn’t miss anything. Before I finish I would like to thank the people who took a good care after us- Latheef, KD, Borhan and our butler Dave. We were very happy to meet the head sommelier Nash and his team from Zimbabwe, such nice people. All waiters in the Grill were perfect too. Thank you and can’t wait to come back!

I don’t often post reviews, but after my visit to this resort I felt compelled to. The 7 days my family and 2 friends and I spent here exceeded our expectations. From transfer from Male to the resort in a seaplane to our welcome on the island the friendliness blew us away. Sooike greeted us on arrival and she was as our vacation coordinator who organized everything from dinner reservations to excursions. Our family was placed in a water villa and garden villas. The quality of the accommodation is superb. Moving around the island is so easy , either by foot , bicycle or golf buggy. Beach is amazing. The various themed restaurants served up incredibly tasty dishes. Special thanks to Suhail and Samah , who went above and beyond to serve and advise us on all dishes and interacted with my family on a level I have not encountered before. To Brian, Lee and Erica who are Sommeliers at the resort a huge thank you for educating and enriching our experience and introducing us to various wines from around the world. Snorkeling was fun. It’s not the best reef I have ever snorkeled but my family and friends thoroughly enjoyed it. A final thank you to all the other staff on the island who always greeted everyone with a smile and a warm greeting. We have already booked to return in December and can’t wait to return. Superb.

I will be subjective and fare, this is my second visit to Maldives, my first time was in a small boutique island resort where the hotel was acceptable but the beach and sea were amazing. My visit this time in Emerald Maldives Resort and Spa was amazing, we stayed at the Royal Beach Villa, a really spacious vill with 3 bedrooms, 4 toilets, 2 living areas and private pool. I’ll summarize my review in the following points: - I prefer a calm sea and large sandy beaches in front of my villa, the beach and water was not the clearest or calmest (maybe because it’s July), but still it was more than great. - Room and hotel facilities are amazing, clean, elegant and has many options (for example the public beach and pool has many seating options like sofas, swings, beds.. etc.). - Restaurants and food were very very good, many options for all tastes. However, you need to manage your reservations for dinner (my villa host took care of it), and the menus does not explain the dishes very well (but the staff were more than happy to explain and recommend dishes). - Drinks in bars and cafes were awesome (I don’t drink alcohol). - Spa I didn’t not try it my self, but my family said there experiences were exceptional. - Kids club A+, my 4 years old daughter can vouch for that. - Water sports and activities were awesome and fun, still you need to arrange reservations in advance. - The best thing about the hotel was the staff, I truly felt that they were trying their best to make our experience as wonderful as possible, not a single person made us feel like they are doing their job just to do their job. - Internet coverage was not the fastest or most stable. - Even thought it doesn’t matter to me personally, but I didn’t see enough events or shows in the evening time beside the talented singer. - I strongly recommend this hotel specially for families.
