A small sized Island resort with 25 water villas and 50 beach villas. Booking through the Qatar airways bubble pack is definitely a good deal. Room is neat with all basic facilities and services twice daily with clean bed linen. Rooms 23 to 32 enjoy good sandy beach right at their for step.Our room cleaner, Yaseen made sure we had fresh bath and beach towels daily. When the air conditioning read not effective, he reported and for it fixed immediately. He also managed to get us a table fan too manage in the mean time. The restaurant has different menu daily prevents monotony. Chef.Thushita makes sure everyone is served according to their preferences. We also had the opportunity to taste a few Asian dishes prepared by him, which were outside of the menu and they were all great. Dessert chef. Michelle is good too. The resort's ice-creams taste really awesome. The bar tenders Ilam, Khalil, Anil and Aakash also make different cocktails to our preferences. Mimo from water sports is good and encourages everyone to try out snorkeling and kayaking. There were excursions for diving, turtle, mantel ray which we didn't try out. On the whole, a great, relaxed and well deserved and a great value for money break at Diamond Thudufushi during COVID times under the Qatar airways bubble pack. However, the services could me improved a bit more. I saw a young couple had ? paid for dinner near the sea hoping it will be romantic! But, just a meter away, guests were playing beach volleyball and the ambience was noisy, which I felt was ill managed by the managers. The 1.5 hours speed boat journey to and fro to the resort from Male seemed very long. I would have preferred a shorter sea plane travel.

Dear nangaiazhahan, Thank you for taking the time to share some feedback with us. I will certainly share the compliments with the team and those specially mentioned. For the dinner on the beach, the couple were advised that the earlier time they selected would clash with our sunset volleyball, but they still selected the time as they wanted to be there for sunset and then dinner once the match were finished. We understand your point about the boat ride, however this sadly was so selected to keep the cost low for the package, but mainly actually to keep the bubble so that you do not mix with other resorts guest when on the sea plane transfers as they are shared flights. Looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Riaan

Not enough stars to actually rate the resort & team. They deserve 10 stars. This will be in our hearts forever and will be the best memory of 2020. We took the Qatar Airways travel bubble and spent 10 days at Thudufushi. The resort is not only stunningly beautiful, but the staff are the real gems of the resort. It’s quite rare that you get to know almost every staff member so well, and at most places I have been to you don’t get to know senior management, unless there is a problem. At Thudufushi, you meet management on arrival, and you see them throughout your stay. The personal touches, the thoughtfulness and care by management and staff really made them stand out. They go beyond the call of duty and you are made to feel like more than just another guest. Riaan, Natassia and Hashim, you are the greatest management team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. We took note of how you treat your team, and your management style runs through the entire resort and makes the island very special. After two days on the island the staff anticipated our needs before we even asked. Mauveen, Hasham and Sheefan really were so attentive and knew exactly what we liked and had it ready for us on arrival in the restaurant each day. We really enjoyed Mauveen’s sense of humor. The bar staff Anil and Khalil were fun to be around and made our stay even more enjoyable. The Christmas Eve dinner on the beach was so beautiful and they really put in a huge amount of effort. To give each child on the island a small Christmas gift was very touching, but it really sums up how amazing and caring the staff are. The island is so beautiful, and the clarity of the water is incredible and its great to be able to snorkel around the island. The Excursion team is great, and everything is well organized. Eleanora, Mimmo, Thomas and the boat crew are great and we thoroughly enjoyed our trips with them. The whale shark, aquarium trip and even the house reef and the sunset fishing were well worth the visit. I was particularly impressed by their Coral Conservation project that was great to see and very interesting. We loved the fruit bats, the beautiful orchids, the agama’s and even the insects. The variety and quality of the food in all the restaurants is superb. 10 days and we never got bored or tired of the amazing cuisine and the presentation and care on each dish is clearly evident. The set Menu was a welcome change from the usual Buffets that you regularly get at resorts. The Head Chef is always around and has an incredible team who are very dedicated. Aqua over The Water’s Michelin Star food is well worth it. The Maldivian Night was a great touch and Christmas Eve dinner on the beach was beautifully done. Water Villas surpassed our expectations. Not only is the room spacious and comfortable,the patio area is massive and very comfortable and a great place to spend your day overlooking the clear water. We had amazing sightings from our balcony: dolphins, manta ray, spotted eagle ray, black tip reef sharks and so many beautiful fish. Faiz was our room attendant, and he takes great pride in his work and ensures that you want for nothing and your room is always beautifully kept. My daughter was not well and we took her to the island doctor. He arranged Covid testing and we were isolated for a day while waiting for the results. Riaan (the GM) was incredible during this, handled the situation with great sensitivity and care. It was a little scary, but he never made us feel like we had the plague. He and his team ensured that we were well taken care of during our isolation and menus, food, drinks and every need was seen too. At no point during this did we feel uncomfortable. Riaan even called us late at night to give us the results of our tests as he knew we were a little worried. Natassia went beyond the call of duty and ensured that if we needed anything that she was available for us and easy to contact. My only feedback from this experience was that it would have been nice if the doctor had followed up on my daughter and how she was feeling or if we needed anything. It was almost as if Covid was his main concern (which I do understand) but it would have been appreciated if he had offered a little help in terms of treatment or even just concern. Fortunately I travelled with medication, otherwise I would have been left dealing with a child who was ill and nothing to treat her with. A bonus on the island is the tailor, and he is amazing and well worth visiting. Natassia is a true Gem, and is just a wonderful caring person. Riaan you rock, and thank you for being so kind and caring and for the amazing family photos you took for us. The photo frame was a very special touch, and we will always remember you fondly. Mauveen, Hasham, Anil, Khalil, Levan, Faiz, Eleonora, Thomas, Mimmo - thank you for making our stay so amazing. This is possibly the best vacation we have ever had and will be happy memories forever. 2020 sucked, but Christmas with my Gnomies at Thudufushi was the highlight of the year. With love - Gassy, Bossy, Bitchy and Chirpy Gnomies.

My husband and I visited Thudufushi and stayed for 10 days in the beginning of December 2020. We stayed in a water villa and had a 360 degree view of the ocean. During the day we went snorkeling in the turquoise blue waters, in the afternoon we went diving with the amazing Govinda from the Padi diving school :) It felt like we were on a little slice of paradise - and all the staff there were so welcoming and took such good care of us. We went as part of Qatar's travel bubble with the Maldives - but will definitely visit again when we get a chance in the future. I strongly recommend Thudufushi for those who's looking to explore marine life carefree with heart-warming hospitality from all the staff we met there. Love it and thank you so much for giving us an unforgettable honeymoon!
