We had such an amazing weeks holiday with you last week. We were well taken care of extremely well, in particular by Saeed who thoroughly cleaned our room every day and created different models of animals for our 5 y/o daughter; Elaan and his colleagues at the bar who took care of us with all of our requests; Russel who gave us lifts every day to and from our water villa and delivered and served us breakfast; Anil who always replenished our drinks at dinner; Ismail who took excellent care of us during mealtimes and was extremely accommodating for our picky 5y/o eater! We will definitely be retuning soon with friends too. My only suggestion would be to have more activities for the children who visit :)

This place is paradise. From the beautiful accommodation to the exceptional food, the luxury is only exceeded by friendliness of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The water villas are worth the cost and are incredible. Luxurious and spacious and Romantic. It is a trip you will remember for many years.

My first island holiday and it exceeded all our expectations! From the reception with staff welcoming us on the dock, to the effortless check in, to our beautiful white watervilla to the crystal ocean all around us! The staff went out of their way to be friendly and accomodating. There were daily excursions to sign up for and free watersports. The cocktail menu of 5 pages was just the thing to chill with after a dip in the 29 deg ocean! And then the food... both the over water restaurant and main restaurant served delicious 4 course meals with many options to choose from. But the best for me was the snorkeling right off the enormous patio of our watervilla! I swam with sea turtles, twice saw manta rays and the most colourful fish too numerous to name. A special snorkeling excursion (3 hours) was an absolute highlight. So, to Elise the general manager, and your staff - well done for making this our best trip ever. A special mention to our waiter Ismail who was more of a personal butler, taking care of us at meal times, Rasil who acted as our chauffeur with the golf cart and Saieed our villa manager who made sure all beverages were replaced and who tidied up the villa twice a day, not to mention the turn down service every night we came back from dinner. We wish you all well in these crazy times of covid. Thudufushi stole a tiny piece of our hearts!

I have read now several of the former reviews and I am kind of surprised what people write. Therefor I want to take it up on some of the points mentioned. At very first - people should read carefully the description of the place they travel to and not complain afterwards about things not being there which were never said to be there in the first place! Then traveling in the wet season has the chance to have “wet” weather! And in these days you can experience everywhere in the world heavy weather - it’s called global warming! Please be aware that you are in the middle of the Indian Ocean and it’s very common to be exposed to the weather! And when you decide to travel to remote destinations like here - you should be aware of these challenges tresorts like this are facing! And last but not least - COVID! We are living ourselves in an African country and I must say - we have never felt so safe and cared for than here! The airport, the boat ride, the resort - really everyone is very careful and following the National procedures to protect guests from being exposed. We are deeply impressed by that! Now about our stay: Our flight landed too late - so we could not take a plane anymore but the resort arranged a transfer by speed boat. We had a meet&greet, we’re escorted to our private speed boat which was crewed with 2 captains and 2 deckhands! The Captain explained that the ride will be choppy and it was very choppy. But having 2 captains on board which changed every 30 minutes made us feel very safe despite being shaken and not stirred :)) We stayed in a Jacuzzi Villa and we had really the time of our life’s. The room was cleaned twice per day! I had birthday here and it was amazing what the team arranged for my special day … they really look after you here and make you enjoy and having fun. We did Manta safari but based on the weather the team told us that it’s possible that we won’t see Mantas but we would go instead to 2 snorkeling sides in case of no Mantas. We didn’t feel it was a rip off because maybe some people are not aware but this is the Indian Ocean and not a zoo! We saw thousands of fishes, 5 turtles and even white tip reef sharks. What more you want? We did the dolphin tour with fishing afterwards. Same here - dolphins were on holiday but the fishing in the dark was sooooo much fun! A must do - even for me thinking fishing is boring - I had sooo soo much fun! Then we did the whale shark tour - it’s a 45 min ride to the south of the atoll with the speed boat. The briefing was excellent as they told us to be ready at any time because the captain will always hurry to the site where the sharks were seen! We managed to see 2 big ones under us - patrolling the reef and then we saw 2 others near the surface. As my partner and me stayed for the second time on board we were even so lucky and shot photos of them from the boat! But again - we were lucky - this is the Indian Ocean and not a zoo! Food - yes it’s a la carte however the chef is happy to do something else when u don’t find something u like on the menu! I had one evening a fish I didn’t like much! I didn’t say anything but the waiter saw that I didn’t eat much. He asked me and I said it’s fine - I just didn’t like it! The next day the chef came already for lunch and said he made different fish - if I don’t want to try that one! It was delicious! The staff is very attentive everywhere … in the restaurant - in the bar - at reception - in the room! Maybe it’s just the way one talks to them - as we say in German how u shout in the forest the echo will be! Just be nice and friendly - you are on holiday here - and if there is something you don’t like - tell them - you can be rest assured they will do all in their power to make it better. We were not sooo excited to come here at first because as mentioned we live ourselves on an island in the Indian Ocean! However - Maldives and Thudufushi did the best job - we are in - you can count us into the club of Maldives lovers! We will be back - there is no doubt! So if you are looking for a small island where it is more like a family than a anonymous hotel - this here is the place you should come! 5 Star from us ⭐️
