Travelers' Choice
Nestled on the unspoilt island of Falhumaafushi in Gaafu Alifu atoll, one of the largest and deepest atolls in the world, this 94 beach-front and over-water villa resort is an intimate retreat. The beauty of the island’s house reef and its resident sharks and turtles is accessible right from the over-water villa deck. Designed to complement its tropical surroundings and provide a sense of place, the villas have been created using natural materials and are decorated with local artefacts. The Spa by Clarins on both Falhumaafushi and sister resort on adjacent Dhigurah island is exclusive to The Residence in the Maldives and offers a range of treatments created exclusively for the resort – an ideal place to escape as it sits directly on the lagoon. The resort boasts three restaurants and four bars, water sports, a fitness centre, kids club and excursions to nearby islands. The romantic Falhumaa restaurant is located at the end of a 230m jetty, right on the reef facing the Indian Ocean. The diving surrounding the hotel is exceptional and the hotel’s PADI 5* Dive Centre offers all level of snorkellers and scuba-divers the opportunity to discover the un-spoilt coral reefs and rich marine life.

Ended up visiting this island with my family for a week and wow - what a holiday. Clear blue waters, lovely staff, a bit pricy but granted it is the Maldives. There’s a couple of restaurants though we mostly stuck to the buffet but a different variety ensures it caters to everyone. They also offer different water sports - I got my beginner diving licence (OW) here as well so definitely lots to do if you get bored tanning in the sun! Would recommend.

It is quite a long journey to reach there but once you are welcomed by very hospitable ever smiling and friendly crew we have forgot the long journey. The Residence staff were incredibly friendly, kind and attentive to giving guest a relaxed and memorable time. Chaiti, Chef balram, Hafiz and few others. We had sun rise water villas with pool in each room. From our bed we could see the sun rise and ocean together. The rooms were clean and big compared to other hotels. The sea was clean we saw baby shark, stingray and many more fishes from our room jetty. The food was a good spread they made good vegetation food also wen we asked for it. The massage in the spa was the icing on the cake of the trip. I can't recommend this resort enough. THE RESIDENCE fulfilled all of our expectations and more.

The hotel was excellent. The only thing we would change is the Chinese restaurant for a Japanese one maybe. The views from our room were amazing and the staff members were really kind. Especially, we would like to highlight three people: Laura at the reception, Dhiyam at the dining room and Shafik in charge of cleaning our room.

I spent 5 days in a 2 bedroom over water villa with my wife and 2 children. The villa had a private pool with direct ocean access. We were on the Falhumaafushi side of the island. There are actually 2 resorts that are connected by a bridge, Falhumaafushi and Dhigurah. You can go to the restaurants and use the facilities on either island regardless of which one you are staying on. Bicycles are provided for your entire family to get around. The villa had more than enough space to accommodate our family of four. There is a sitting room in the center with a bedroom on each side. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The kid’s bedroom had 2 twin beds. Each room has large sliding glass doors that open to the balcony. Waking up to ocean views every morning was a wonderful experience. Even the bathrooms have beautiful ocean views. In addition to the gorgeous views the service at the resort was top notch. All staff are extremely friendly and always smiling. There are multiple restaurants to go to including a buffet, beach bar, fancy upscale and ala carte dining hall. My kids are picky eaters so we chose to stick with the ala carte so they can order what they want. There are water sports such as snorkeling, kayak rentals, stand up paddle boarding and jet skis. The spa has daily yoga classes. Overall, I had a wonderful vacation. It was worth the long flight from Los Angeles. It was nice that the resort took care of my airport transfers. They had someone at Male airport waiting for us. He assisted with the baggage transfers and checking into the local flight from Male to Kooddoo. COVID testing was done by a doctor at the resort. The results were available within 24 hours. I couldn’t have asked for a better vacation. The staff go above and beyond to make sure you have a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend The Residence to anyone wanting to go to the Maldives.
