It was a very nice holiday on a beautiful island with great rooms and fantastic staff! The only thing we did not like were loud and quick jetski running over the water near the beach and the reef. We did not like these jetski, Fortunately they were only used in a few minutes every day, but nonetheless we would suggest to forbid this! It disturbs the character of the beautiful island!

Response from Shihalini Rajaratnam, Guest Services / Front Office at Amari Havodda Maldives
Responded yesterday
Dear jenspriedel, Marhaba, Greetings from Amari Havodda Maldives, Thank you for your review. We are glad that you had an amazing time in our little paradise island. We understand that some of our guests love to engage in watersports activities while in the Maldives and try our best to maintain the distance from the lagoon which in turn may not affect the tranquil atmosphere of our resort. Nevertheless, your comment has been duly noted and shared with our Management for further consideration. Thank you again for choosing us as your destination of choice and giving us the opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to hospitality with a heart in our Maldivian paradise. We look forward to welcoming you back to our home very soon! With kindest regards, Shihalini Rajaratnam Manager, Front Office Amari Havodda Maldives

The vacation was very nice. The island is beautiful. The hotel leave nothing to be desired. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are very delicious and varied. All persons off the staff are very friendly and helpful! The watervillas are modernly equiped and on a very nice place of the island.

This is a beautiful place to chill and relax. But Not only this. The under watter live here is amazing. Big wonderfull rief with a lot of suprises - also Sharks. But don't worry they are here not agressive. Not grey sharks. This is simple amazing to meet them face to face. You don't need to be profi diver - with simple equipment you can enjoy everything. In the evening in the Bar ask for FUNDI - the best service guy and sing with him "Hakuna Matata". A lot of fun !. Service+Rooms = simple the best. Food also not to complain.

Perfect Honeymoon We had the best time at Amari on our honeymoon, staying for 12 nights (all inclusive) in October 2021. Transfer - total travel time from the UK was 24 hours. On arrival into Male, we were led to a lounge to wait 3 hours for our internal flight to Amari (including speedboat to the island itself). This wait was longer than we would like but we were well looked after, there’s a representative who makes sure you’re OK. Arrival to the island was great, we were greeted by the staff & check in was very quick and seamless. Host - we were greeted by our host Murooj who explained the island in detail and took us to our room. Murooj was fantastic and ensured everything was perfect - even making sure we could get our favourite cocktails from the bar! He checked in on us throughout our stay and was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you Murooj! Room - we stayed in an overwater villa (160) - the room was absolutely perfect with turquoise water leading into the coral which we could snorkel around. The room is clean and has good facilities (coffee machine etc) and the bathroom was breath taking, with the outdoor shower a highlight. Couldn’t recommend this room enough. Food&Drink - amazing! Although buffet style, the variety and quality is amazing! The Asian food in particular was a stand out. Drinks are all international brands and the wine was great too - check out the Iru Bar for amazing sunset cocktails. We received a complimentary beach bbq which was nice but we probably wouldn’t have paid for it. However, the stand out was our meal at Ember grill. We got the tasting menu (around $85 each) - the food was sensational and the steak we had was the best we’ve ever tasted! Amazing. Entertainment - snorkelling is a must. You get free snorkelling gear for your stay. We went out moist days and seen hawksbill turtles, reef tip sharks and feather tail rays amongst all the colourful fish. Live music twice a week was a welcome addition. Summary - perfect resort, hard to find any fault & we would love to return someday! Special thanks to Murooj for making us feel so comfortable!

This is a slice of paradise. The whole experience of Amari Havooda is sublime. The staff cannot be more professional or attentive to your needs. The service is second to none, nothing was ever needed or wanted by us as the staff were absolutely in tune with our requirements. The food was excellent, multiple dishes served each day with no repetition. I cannot recommend the chef dining experience at Ember Grill 1 on 1 dining with a personal chef is pure indulgence. The photos show the island is a very positive light but to fully. appreciate this heavenly place you must see it for yourself. A very special mention to our host Murooj, a consummate professional available 24/7 he was the icing on this most fabulous cake. 5 star luxury heaven.
