We would like to thank everyone on the island for making our holiday so enjoyable. The boat staff, reception, catering, bar, cleaning and everyone we did see was amazing. Our kids enjoyed playing football and badminton with the staff. We were a large group and were looked after so well. The food and selction was truly brilluant, i hoped it would be good and and it was better than expected. The island is clean, great beeches and just so relaxing. The dive centre and all their staff were brilliant and thank you to them for their professional and fun set. Grest times, memories and laughter. Small island with a massive kind heart. Thank you Embudu.

I have always been slightly weary of an all inclusive resort but not anymore. What an incredible location with incredible staff and incredible food. We took our 3 year old and our 10 month old, the water was so shallow on our side of the island that I felt much more relaxed about our eldest playing in the water for hours. He had the absolute time of his life. Our youngest got very poorly shortly after we arrived which required a hospital trip and the staff were so helpful and supportive, we had someone from the hotel with us at all times throughout the hospital process and until we got back to the island. I would like to give a special mention so some key staff at Embudu, Santosh, Kamal & Karthick (I hope I have spelt their names correctly!) between them they took such great care of us. These are only a few names amongst many who made our holiday truly memorable. I would highly recommend this resort and hope to one day be able to go back there.

We last went to Embudu as a couple back in 2012 and had a lovely time. This time we returned with all the family to celebrate Christmas and New Year together. Everything was perfect. Everyone who works there was lovely, kind, helpful and friendly. The food was amazing - there were 30 in our group and every single one of them raved about the food - so many choices and all of it yummy. The island is very green which keep the rooms cool but the beaches are bathed in sunshine and just a few steps from the villas. The hotel does not have a swimming pool but is surrounded by a huge shallow natural pool inside the house reef, where all ages can swim safely. The snorkelling is some of the best for seeing fish that i've seen anywhere in the world although there is very little living coral in the region. Several of the group took their SSI open water course while we were there and loved it - huge thanks to Victoria and the team for looking after them all so well. The only bad thing was having to go home at then end. It may not be the fanciest resort in the Maldives but it is probably the happiest. I can't wait to go back.

Perfect snorkeling - the best reef is near the water villas and the boats. Delicious food - even though I don't like chill, there was alsways something to choose from. The service was excellent by our waiter MD Hossain - he was really very proffesional, quick and friendly. The villa was good and near the beach.

Our first visit to this Island, we stayed in one of the beach bungalows and found it to be perfectly nice as it was on the south side. The restaurant serves a good selection of local and western food , the bar is very nice. Staff are all friendly and helpful . We came here for the diving and found the house reef good for both snorkeling and diving, The dive school is well run, friendly and efficient. The only drawback is that the island is close to Male, only around 15 to 20 minute boat ride , thus losing some of the magic of the remoteness of the Maldives. You can hear and see passenger planes leaving or arriving at the airport and also float planes regularly flying close to the island

My husband and I had a wonderful week long stay at this beautiful resort. All went smoothly from the second we landed at the airport and took the boat ride to the resort. Staff is friendly and attentive and ready to help in any way. The food served at mealtime was great and I was very pleased at the wide selection available. -We stayed in a beach bungalow. I loved that the room was so close to beach and I could fall asleep to the ocean sounds. Room was clean and housekeeping came everyday to keep it clean. -Dive center offers very cool excursions and the opportunity to rent snorkeling gear if you didn’t bring any. -Wonderful spa as well if you decide to visit! Outstanding stay and I look forward to a return visit.
