It is 90 minutes ride with speed boat from Male. We stayed there 4 nights, it was just enough as this is small island and it might become boring for more active persons. The reef was nice with many colourful fishes. There could be rented snorkelling and diving equipment. What was disappointing for us were the concrete barriers that surrounded...

I cannot sing the praises for this hotel enough. Okay, it's not 5 star but the staff are friendly, they work extremely hard to keep the place clean and tidy and the guests happy.

What’s there not to like about Ellaidhoo? This was by far the best holidays we have had. We were home away from home! We arrived at the resort by seaplane at 2pm. We were supposed to be given lunch on arrival day but the restaurant was closed upon our arrival. So we were given lunch at the bar while waiting...

What's not to like about ELlaidhoo? The island is stunning. The service from staff is impeccable. The buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner provides such a variety. Snorkelling is fantastic and is to die for. The surf shop hires out hand held water scooters which was very reasonably priced and a lot of fun. The water is crystal clear and a...
