Best experience ever ! LONG REVIEW ! We won’t write about the one of the most beautiful destination in the world, which Maldives are and a beautiful resort but, we would like to highlight the whole team which work here and they are a key to your success. People who work there are honestly the greatest „workers” we ever met and we are travelling all around the world. Always kind, with the smile on a face, each time you meet anyone of them they are greeting you, but on top of that they are highly qualified, experienced and professional. We would like to thanks to the particilar ones, which we took a note of them names and which make our holidays great: Nandana - BEST HOMEMADE ICE CREAMS !! Sinha Aips Sameera Rukii lakaa lali Fazlur Ayshika Prashan Dasun Chameera Sameera Lakshan Thiki Sharu Ahu Riley Azzam Minnie Bakey Haisham Rahman Fasy Jody Cristiano Please note the above are only the onces we had a chance to write down, however literally everyone who works there gave us a TOP service !! Whole housekeeping team were amazing, the man who clean our room did that with a perfection. Whenever we did not need to clean our room , someone always reconfirm with us if for sure we dont need anything. Minibar team always on point ! Whole restaurant and bar team,pool bar team - waitresses, bartenders, cheefs all were great , taking a care for all of the details , once we finished to drink or eat, we been always asked if we want something else. Food was fresh and tasty with a decent choice, coffee and coctails was done very well ! Entertaintment team - My God, this people are never tired and always happy !!! Giving such a great atmosphere and relax so much needed in this weird time, puts our mind in ease ! To begin with volleyball, auqafun & aqua gym to the night entertaintment and even kids attractions (even we dont have a kids) was a great fun ! Watersports team - polite, with a top knowledge and experience giving a great choice of activities. You wont be bored here ! Big Thank you to Ahu and our diving instructor ( Russian lady, sorry but forgot the name), a pool pre diving experience is something which should be a must and which many resorts does not offer, where here it allows me to fight with a fear and continue by the reef ! Amazing experience ! Reception team are also very kind and professional. Spa & Gym - gym have everything you need to do a holiday workout, and I am glad your resort have it as for us „gymholics” was a key resort feature, which must be in a hotel where we want to travel. We also need to especially highlight massage therapists from your spa. We experience „Couple relaxing massage” and OMG cant describe how good it was !!! That was till now best massage ever we had . Those therapists are WORLD TOP !! Them skills should have everyone who works in this field, which we told them afterwards. We have goose bumps during the whole procedure. We would like to also thanks to all mamagement team and supervisors as without you probanly the resort will not work how it works on that high level. Everything in this resort is well organised, you wont be bored coming here, even we thought we will be while staying almost 2 weeks and the amount of attractions and bars which are almost 24hrs giving the best experience ever. Snack bar with amazing coctails and sports chanells well needed after a dinner once we get hungry again haha. Only one thing we would change - in a snack bar there should be different choice of food for each day. We were also impressed by the maintanance team and of the workes who took care of plants or beach cleaning from the stones - this was so appreciate it as it allows to enter the ocean without a struggle. Also thank you to our TUI rep Franziska, which located our luggage lost by the London airport team, and luckily she solved the problem withing an hours, and without that our holidays would be ruined. I (Sandra) used to work in hospitality and travel industry as a tour operator, many years in many positions, so I know exactly how everytning should looks like, and from the bottom of my heart I can’t say even one negative comment in regards to this place. Usually I am not bodered to leave the review as I always forgetting about that, but I had to do this , this time. The funny thing is to say , when we saw most of the Rui Palace hotel guests coming to us ! They enjoyed the time in Rui Atoll. :) If, I would be an employer of those people I would give them a pay rise or a bonus as they are a key to the success of your company and believe me - you dont want them to loose it !! Great staff ! I wish in all of the places people who work will be like here, as all they do , they do it with PASSION ! Sandra Janicka & Kacper Rutecki - Room 3020

Stay was alright but the management by the staff was the worst, I haven't ever seen such kind of irresponsible behavior. Some staff give you some information and other say something else and when you ask what's the solution they just say sorry and apologies. I am very dissatisfied with the services.

I just returns from my stay of 5 days, rejuvinating to say the least. Beautiful place, excellent service, really clean place, good food, lots of activities especially if one loves water activity or else just relax in front of turquoise water. I am thinking of going back next year again. Few issues, v are vegetarian so in buffet food labels can mention if food item contained egg or meat or sea food so that one doesn't have to go chef everytime to clear it. Room decor is average, couldn't find moisturizer as I was depending on hotel to provide it. Bit too much walking at times in afternoon heat, can have option of golfkart sometimes. Otherwise a very pleasant stay, enjoyed every bit of it, very co-operative staff in Dhoni(malisha, vedant, abdul n others everyone was helpful), Sports bar(Aysika/fazlur), pool bar n water sports center(shami/yana), unfortunately couldn't get speciality restaurant bookings. Worth it, enjoyed it
