Amazing place, Amazing Staff everything was a dream and perfect. This hotel is brand new, the food is amazing, this hotel is kids and infant friendly (they provid us and high chair and a special trash for baby diaper), they prepared the best mash potatoes for my baby. The diving center staff is amazing, they have trip and the respect animal, special thanks to Pippa, Hassan and Sato. If you are looking for a home away from home in « Paradise » go ahead. Thank to Pierre, Nikulu, Fatih, Vivi and all the staff.

Hotel's Favorite
My daughter and I decided to go there after an incredibly awful year and we were so positively surprised by this lovely boutique resort....the water pool villa was just what we needed: modern spacious, neat and clean...the outdoor furniture is tasteful... the buffet was very generous and offered a lot of variety everyday..the team is friendly and welcoming ...the therapists at the spa are excellent! The sunrise and sunsets were mesmerizing ...well organized trips...rich marine life...and last but not least we ate the best bread ever special compliments to the bakery chef... We were so kindly upgraded by Emma the marketing manager who made sure our stay was unique and we felt taken care of, which naturally made us extend our stay! We could not have made a better choice as a first trip following this horrifying year it was worth the wait and reconnected us to hope and beauty! Thank you maafushivaru!!!

From the moment we arrived at the airport, we were greeted with the smiling face of the Lti Maafushivaru representative who escorted us to the sea plane terminal. After a short wait in the lounge and a 25 minute flight later, we arrived at this stunning resort. The very first thing you hear upon arrival from the wonderful staff is “Welcome Home” and that is how you feel for the entirety of your stay, relaxed like you are at home and nothing is too much trouble. The island is of course breathtaking and the accommodation stylish and clean with incredible attention to detail and beautiful views from all the villa but the most special part for us was the team for sure. From the smiling faces of Vivi and the girls in the bar area, to the Maldivian fact of the day from Irfan at lunch and the infectious enthusiasm of Pippa and the dive team during our Whale Shark trip, you have all been outstanding. Of course we must mention Pierre and his wonderful management team, who even waved us off from the jetty at 6am the morning we left! We appreciate everything you have done for us, you made our first trip to the Maldives so special and we can’t thank you enough. This truly was the most genuine 5 star experience we have ever been lucky enough to experience. We will be back for sure! 🥰

This resort ticks ALL the boxes: perfect management, laid-back luxury, fantastic modern and upscale interior design, yet functional and comfy. Lovely landscaping by almost invisible gardeners who seem to be working around the clock to keep everything neat. Very attentive top-class service, polite but never stuffy. Well mixed, international clientele, no nationality is overwhelmingly represented. The staff is just wonderful: professional, cheerful, welcoming. Nothing is ever too much trouble. A very special thanks goes to the super professional, hard working but always smiling ladies of the Water Bar: Pauline, Chara, Deana and all the others, sorry for not getting all names or misspelling them! To Niluka, who is a fantastic manager and enthusiastic host. He lives for his job! To the amazing lady executive chef: she does an incredible job, the food was simply divine, in all the outlets. We have no idea how she and her fantastic team do it, on an island where literally nothing grows! To the lovely Maldivian waitstaff, who were all highly professional and well-trained, and also even knowledgeable with wine, considering they do not drink any alcohol! Special thanks there to Irfan, who took very good care of us on many nights in Moodhu and Umi! To Franck and the whole dive center staff, to Pippa for her enthusiastic lead of the (successful!) whale shark safari, and all her tireless efforts for sustaining marine life! And last but not least to our discreet and efficient room steward Imnan: When he noticed after the first day that we used up a lot of those tiny milk containers for our morning coffee, he put a pack of fresh milk in the minibar! This is what makes this resort so special: you always get more than you had expected. And that is remarkable and makes you feel special. The island even has its own resident DJ, we loved his afternoon chillout sets by the pool! All the live musicians were great, too. Overall, it is the people who make this resort truly unforgettable: over the last 20 years, we have been to many other islands, but never before felt so personally pampered! Board options: The all-inclusive dine-around is highly recommended if you plan to eat 3 times a day, and drink alcohol. Just trying all their signature cocktails makes it worthwhile! What we liked: As all-incl guests you are never treated as „second class“ guests, quite the opposite really: there is a very very generous and cheerful feel overall. I never had the impression that anyone was judging my indulgent a** 😂! It is really hard to think of anything missing, but since there are always some small things that can be improved, even in Maafushivaru, here‘s a few little suggestions: - Maybe add a tasteful rack/ clothes line for hanging wet swimwear outside (in the sun!). - Everything in the Villa-minibar should be included in the DA-all-inclusive package. Or at least 1 or 2 wines and a beer... - Make Sunset a Thing! Maybe by adding a few lounging chairs around UMI, and creating a little cocktail hour every day for sunset watching? Maybe through a window at UMI, or via a little pop-up bar wagon/station? (We have seen this on other islands). Or maybe even build a terrasse- deck around UMI to hide the (sorry) ugly concrete walls? We missed the sundowner option a little bit, as the main (and only) bar faces north... - add a draft beer (local beer ok!) to the bar options. Maybe served Japanese-style, in frozen mugs? ;-) Anyway: We are already planning to come back next year, hopefully we will meet many friendly faces again! If you are a food & drink person and love on-fleek interior design, look no further, this is the island for you! Cheers to all, Kathrin, David & Tyson
