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.

First time in Maldives n never regretted choosing Residence Falhumaafushi. Service was impeccable, food is top tier fine dining style for the full board inclusive meals. Celebrated my birthday there with my partner and they arranged a special celebration just for me. Whole resort was clean, well maintained and every single staff is helpful too. Huge thanks to Bar manager - Lashmer, F&B manager - Ibrahim, Ops manager - Nisha and executive chef - Erwan - who helped to arrange all the celebrations. The team is passionate about their job and is constantly willing to improve by asking for customer feedback and most importantly, puts a personal touch when serving customers. Thank you for such a wonderful experience, we will be back for sure!

Hotel's Favorite
We’ve been to some great hotels over the years and the Residence Maldives is certainly up there so much so that this is the first review I’ve written whilst still on vacation. The internal flight and speedboat was straight forward with residence staff on hand all the way. Check in was a breeze. Travelling around both islands is fun on the bikes and buggies always available when you don’t fancy the cycle. Availability of restaurants is good and the fine dining options are a class above. Quality of food is great. The beach bar is our favourite haunt and the cocktails on offer is extensive and good quality. Mounesh, Deepak, Raja etc. are always on hand and nothing is too much trouble. We also enjoyed the ‘Just the two of us’ package at the spa which was excellent. Mia and Sungay were so professional and we walked out of there so relaxed. Highly recommended. Snorkelling from the beach is great too. Within our first few days we seen turtles, black tip sharks and also a leopard shark (very lucky). We will be sad to leave this gem of a place.

We just enjoyed our vacation in the Residence Maldives in early August. Initially it was a bumpy trip to the island as check in system in the Males International Airport was down, however the hotel staff had been helpful ever since we stepped in the airport: helped us with the luggages, queued for us in front of the counter, arranged lounge for us to rest during the few hours wait. Things just got better and better after we had reached the resort. There were multiple staff waiting for us (even we ended up reaching the resort at 3am), room was well prepared, spacious and they even prepared wine, snacks and fruit platter for us to enjoy after the long journey. The bedding was clean, pillow and mattress were so comfy that we had a good rest and got ready for the countless activities waiting for us. The room was facing the beautiful ocean that is so clear and we were able to see many wildlife (stingray, sharks tortoise.. you name it). The surrounding was so peaceful and quiet and we could truly relax. I also want to highlight how amazing their service is. All the staff are all cheerful and helpful, they will always smile and say hello to us, chat with us and share about local life in Maldives. It was a monsoon season and they even helped us to change room when the wind was too strong. Special thanks to Shanyz (and many others sorry if I cannot name them one by one) who took care of us when we moved around and always text to check on us. Food is also amazing with multiple dining options, the dining room serves buffet with a wide variety, FALHUMAA and LONG ISLAND are my favourite which the former served French food and latter served Italian food. Long Island is also known as Li Bai which was serving Cantonese food but not now (but I heard you can reserve Cantonese food if needed) but the western food is really good. Fresh ingredients and nice representation. We went for full board so don’t need to worry about eating too much haha. We also signed up for different free activities. The most popular one would be the house reef orientation, which the instructor showed us where the reef and there we can see the most biodiversity. We also went for sunset yoga which made us feel so detoxed afterwards. There are also other paid activities that I wanted to join but I couldn’t coz im pregnant (ps the staff took special care of me and I really appreciate it) like jet skiing, aqua yoga, Scuba diving..etc Another highlight was the Spa by Clarins, we went three times coz it was sooo good that I fell asleep (remember to get the triple relaxation package $200 for three massages, worth it) I also tried the facial which my face radiated afterwards hah There is a mother to be treatment which I highly recommend as the therapist was so skilful and gentle and I can tell my baby was enjoying it too. They also hosted a management cocktail session with free drinks, live performance in the beautiful castaway island, we witnessed the sunset in the island. It was so romantic!! All the guests were enjoying themselves with laughters and dance. Highly recommend !!

We had an amazing vacation at the Residence Maldives Falhumaafusi. Can't even start to describe how heavenly it was. Starting from the rooms: The rooms are huge and very spacious. We stayed both on a beach pool villa and over water pool villa. Both villas were huge, had a living room, bed room, bathroom including outdoor shower, indoor shower, and a bath, a large sundeck, and a nice pool. The rooms are well maintained, and include any amenity you may require. Free mineral water is available throughout the resort. The WIFI service was working smoothly and high speed. The service: The service of the hotel staff was impeccable, any request that we had was immediately fulfilled always with a smile and always with a can do approach. The staff always remembered us and our preferences and they really made our stay memorable. We had the best time at the resort and we highly recommend it. We specially would like to thank Mr. Amit, the housekeeping manager, Sasha from the front desk, Joynal from housekeeping, Gracia from the Dining room, and Yanis. You guys really made our visit extra special

I thought pictures of the Maldives were photoshopped but I was wrong. The water is picturesque blue and it is as beautiful as it seems. The Residence was fantastic. Great staff, beautiful food, spacious rooms with picturesque views. We had an all inclusive package with all your food and drink (including top shelf alcohol) included.

This was a flawless holiday, everything was perfect. The service was great, our every need was accommodated. The villas were gorgeous with beautiful views. There were fantastic amenities and the food in all the restaurants was delicious. Scuba diving is a must! (My only suggestion is that if the weather is stormy perhaps consider an inland villa.)

If you are looking for a romantic escape to start married life, the Residence is perfect. We stayed 10 nights and it was so beautiful and relaxing. All of the staff sensational and the food and beverage outlets are all amazing. Highly recommend the all inclusive package, Jet ski safari and dolphin sunset cruise. The over water rooms a must. Thank you to the whole team at the Residence for making our honeymoon so memorable.

We have selected The Residence Maldives after looking at 100 properties in Maldives. The main reason to select this place is the client's review and the scenery. The Residence Maldives is absolutely the best place for honeymoon couples. We have 0 complaints about them since they are the best in everything. They should be awarded for their hospitality. The food was yummy, the staffs were very approachable, Bhagi facilities to explore the place is the best part, great ambience in all 3 restaurants. Pool villa and water villa both the experiences are amazing. Special thanks to Manish and Lakshman for your great service, you guys are the nicest people. Will again definitely plan our trip to The Residence Maldives soon❤️

Had my honeymoon here and I wish I was there significantly longer than I had booked initially! This place is amazing from location and aesthetic, to the staff and their EXTREMELY high level of service! This place and its staff will make you feel like both royalty and a friend at the same time, in a simply stunning setting with good food and fun activities to do! Laxman and his staff were masterful at navigating a food allergy as well, which was much appreciated! All the little snacks by the pool bar were incredible, the Castaway Island is a dream, and the amenities are so nice! We absolutely loved our overwater villa with pool. The Residence did so much to help make our trip smooth, including taking care of the airport transfers and etc. The service level is so high that even with the transport BACK to Male airport they had a representative there to see everyone off and ensure they got to the proper destination within the airport!!! I dream to come back here one day. Not one person will regret a stay here.
