We were greeted by the manager Hassan as soon as we arrived & given a water villa room. We stayed here for 4 nights before transferring to Medhufushi island resort. Every single member of staff works incredibly hard & put in a lot of effort, everyone on the island treated us like VIP's, every single request was met fully, efficiently... More

Recently returned from an 11-night break at Filitheyo, and am already making plans to return! The photos you'll see on TA, on the aaaResorts site and everywhere on the internet make the place look idyllic, and there's a reason for that; It is idyllic! We stayed on the north shore in semi-detached bungalows (low 40s) close to reef exit no.5.... More

A short 3 day break in Filitheyo Island resort whilst touring Asia. The resort is everything you expect from the Maldives. Staff are great and accommodating. The food is fantastic, and what a place to relax.

We were here because it was near the atoll to where we were designated to campaign for. We made trips to local Island and I have to say the atmosphere the genuineness of the people in the local islands were amazing. 😃 the campaign trip was also great.

We largely picked this place based on the amount of favourable reviews it had for diving and snorkelling. People were not wrong!! This is by far the best Maldivian diving + snorkelling holiday we have had so far. People seem to rave about places like Cinnamon Ellaidhoo for snorkelling. Whilst it's not bad there for that, this place is massively... More

The best off-beach snorkelling I've ever experienced. The variety & quantity of fish is unbelievable. The only off-putting thing is that sometimes the current can be quite strong, so you need to be an experienced snorkeller & swimmer. An excellent hotel resort offering an execptionally high quality of service. Excellent & varied food. The spa is totally wonderful. Would recommend... More

Although only one time in Maldives and only at this resort, i have to admit that the place is amazing! Filitheyo has a reef on it's own, so you don't need to dive or to snorkel elsewhere... just by the sea directly in front, you will clearly see also the entrance points from/to the reef. Many fishes, clown fishes and... More
