We went to Diamonds Thudufushi for our honeymoon. If you're doing the same - SPEND THE MONEY ON A WATER VILLA. The extra privacy and peace/quiet is worth it. We were WV16 and it (for us) was perfectly placed... we were far away enough from the noise in the evening but close enough to walk if we fancied the walk.... More

We stayed at a water villa for 4 nights and it was terrific. Crystal blue waters as far as the eye can see - nothing quite like stepping right out of the steps of the villa for a morning snorkel in the clear waters, seeing all kinds of colourful fish and coral, then having breakfast out by the verandah.

We spent 3 great nights here at the end of an excellent, but rather breathless, tour of Sri Lanka. It rounded off a great holiday perfectly. From the moment that we arrived in Male, everything worked like clockwork. The flying boat transfer was a real thrill, and we were greeted at the island by friendly, smiling staff who could not...

When a resort describes itself as being luxury, there is usually an expectation that there will be a certain amount of pretentiousness as well. However, as far as Thudufushi is concerned, this could not be further from the truth. This is a laid-back and down-to-earth, yet completely luxury resort set in an idyllic location in the middle of the Indian... More

Thudufushi is every bit as beautiful as the brochures promise - better in fact! A tiny paradise where smiling gardeners offer to chop freshly picked coconuts for you. All the staff were excellent; the golf buggy guys, the bar staff, the dhoni men and the waiters. Our waiter in the Over Water restaurant, Suja, was fabulous. So kind to our... More

If I could, I'd give this resort 6 out of 5 - even though I rarely even hand out a five. Diamonds Thudufushi touches perfection. The island itself is a magnificent jewel in the atol, very small (you walk around it in less than ten minutes, and across it in less than a few), but with white sand, healthy plants... More

The staff are friendly and exceptionally helpful. Food is fantastic, the diving to see various fish is unbelievable!! So much to do or nothing, whatever takes your fancy. Ensure to book onto things quickly as places soon go. If you get the opportunity you must eat at the teppanyaki bar, the chef is brilliant.
