We spent a fantastic 10 day holiday at this resort and would thoroughly recommend it. The sea plane journey to Filitheyo was an amazing way to start the holiday and to reach the island in time for sun set was a great way to see the island for the first time. We stayed in a water villa which was large,...

Here, it is not about luxury. Of course, you will adore the water villas and the daily wake-up where eyes meet the shades of blue of the atoll. Of course you will enjoy the variety of menus, the tastes of India, China, Europe, Thailand etc. and the kindness and efficiency of the staff. For sure you will appreciate the sunset...

A magical arrival by seaplane (a 45 min flight from Malé) on this beautiful little island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The disconnection from the urban life is immediate. Bungalows are all perfectly integrated into the landscape and they disappear into vegetation. We were immediately conquered by the beauty and the tranquillity of the place. A flaw :...

This place is not a luxury 5 star Hotel but it definitely does not make you miss home. The location is stunning and the food is delicious. We lived in one of the water villas. The staff is so kind, warm and accommodating. The servers make you feel so special by surprising you with little things - they made me...

Just returned from Filitheyo Island Resort. We stayed for ten nights in a water villa which was very comfortable, with its own deck looking out to sea. These villas are close together so if you are sitting out there is not much privacy from your neighbours. Also, be aware that the water noise around the villa is not always a...

Absolute paradise. We stayed in a water bungalow for 10 days and we will be booking again. Excellent value for money. Amazing snorkelling straight out from our water bungalow. On our first snorkling trip we saw a turtle! The house reef is just amazing. Excellent service from very helpful staff who made our stay so memorable, nothing was too much...

Visited this amazing island in the first week of December. We were there for 8 days. Staff is very generous and help you out all the time. The island is surrounded by an house reef, which is fabulous. We spent endless hours snorkelling. You can see various fishes, turtles, Sting rays, mantas nd reef sharks which are friendly and never...
