Hondaafushi is located in the Northern Haa Dhaalu Atoll. The island measures about 500m at its widest point and has an approximately 2km long sandy beach. The lagoon in front of the beach is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Water sports enthusiasts will feel like a fish in water at Hondaafushi. Within a walking distance, the jetty on the west side of the island allows an easy entry to the house reef. A shuttle service of a special kind will be our boat shuttle to the approximately 25 different dive spots besides the house reef. This service is available for a small service fee. Night dives and early morning dives at the house reef are daily possible.

Excellent service, extremely helpful and kind staff that really do the outmost to make you feel satisfied and taken care of. Natural island with beautiful white sand beach that allows you to take a walk around the whole island never leaving the beach. Fresh, tasty and varying food with excellent choice of exotic fruits. Clean and tidy villas with direct access to the beach. Well organised transfer from Malé to the resort by Hondaafushi team. We already plan our next visit back to Hondaafushi!

Three weeks at this most scenic of Maldivian islands. The transfer from and to Male was very well organised. We fully appreciated the use of the airport lounge at Male. We have been to the Maldives on six previous occasions, but this was the most beautiful island of them all .Clear, azure blue seas and 'miles' of white powder beaches. An island about a mile long and a quarter of a mile wide, with only 50 bungalows (of which, at any time, less than two thirds were occupied), you felt like Robinson Crusoe. If you want quiet and relaxing, then this is the place. It did liven up with a disco once a week and Heyment (manager) always took part......mmmmm, but that dancing!! All staff, from management to gardeners, were extremely friendly. Always greeted you with a smile. Special thanks go to Rashid (our room 'boy'), Dhieran (our waiter) and Sobuz and Baten at the Thila Bar. All gave great, friendly service. Just a few points on the downside (hence the 4 stars):- 1. Jet skis should be limited to the south side of the main beach, away from the bungalows. When swimming, it is extremely worrying to have untrained 'idiots' whizzing up and down within just a few meters. This is an accident waiting to happen. 2.Food could have been better. Quality was inconsistent and it was often barely warm. Having said that, there was good variety and we never went hungry. 3. The price of diving was extortionate and far above what I have paid on other islands. To do 10 boat dives, with own equipment, cost $110 per dive. Add another $45 if you were renting the equipment (i.e. $155 per dive). I go to the Maldives to dive; but not at those prices. Our thanks to everyone for making our holiday so enjoyable. We had a great time and would love to return but, because of 3. above, we doubt that we will.

Looking back at our time at Hondaafushi... We asked ourselves what made our stay so incredible? Was it the incredible beaches that the resort has? Was it the location and the size of the island? Was it the great food? Was it the Thila bar's amazing drinks and cocktails? The room and outside shower or Was it the wonderful team? The answer is... it was all of the above and more! Let's start with the team. Wow! Never in our lives have we come across people so genuine and caring to assist guests and make your stay so memorable. They really go above and beyond for people. From fetching you at the airport and ushering you to your next departure gate, to making sure you are checked in, always in the loop and taken care of the entire time. On arrival at Hanimadhoo Airport we were greeted by the amazing Adhurey. who got us safely to our speedboat and to a very well prepared and swift check-in at the resort by the welcoming reception team and Hemant from the management team. We were in awe from the moment we arrived! Hasim was our waiter during our stay and gave us the most incredible service and quickly became a friend of ours. And the list goes on... The guys at the Thila Bar, The Housekeeping team, The Buggie Drivers and Rajith the Marketing Manager who honestly went out of his way for us and treated us like royalty!! I could go on for days about the wonderful team! Thank you again guys!! The location of the island is really great, the rooms all face east so you are greeted by the most incredible morning sunrise. We highly recommend a morning swim as the sun is coming up on the beach outside your room. The beaches are quite something and are really difficult to explain, words will not do it justice. Spend your time really exploring the different options you have available including the quiet south corner and north west of the island. They all have a different reason why they are great. You might be as lucky as we were and spot some Dolphins, some Tuna or a Manta ray on your adventures. One of the things that make Hondaafushi great is the size of the island. It's a lot bigger than most islands which means you aren't really on top of other guests and you have more space to explore. The walks in the jungle are great at any time of the day or night. Be sure to check out the gym - The equipment is well maintained and there is a great variety so you are easily able to keep your training schedule whether you are into cardio or weights. For weights you are all sorted for Back, Chest, Legs, Shoulders push and pull days. The Thila bar and pool area was probably one of our favourite places on the island. The barmen can whip you up your favourite cocktail - try out the Orange Blossom, Pina Colada, Caipirinha... actually just try them all! The Thila Bar area and swing in the ocean is also the best place to catch a jaw dropping sunset! We had the all inclusive option so breakfast, lunch and dinner was included. All meals are buffet style and are changed up everyday. From great roasts to salad options, curries, seafood, pasta's, breads, freshly whipped up dosa's and desserts - there is something for everyone and it is all delicious! Be sure to try some of the unique things like Umali for dessert or a fruit platter from Sukunthala, the sweetest lady! We absolutely loved everything about the island and the experience and can't wait to plan our next visit!
