The resort is great! The beaches are absolutely beautiful and have an amazing house reef, in which you can see many fish just by snorkeling. The rooms and other buildings are clean and well kept. The food tastes great and the staff is very nice.

A breathtaking island with incredible wildlife on land and on the local reef. The snorkelling is second to none and there are good opportunities for diving. Nothing is too much for the staff who are friendly and polite, and keep the island in pristine condition. There are many options in the main buffet restaurant so suitable for everyone and you have to try the Sunset Bar because the food there is amazing! A fantastic place to unwind and relax. Would definitely recommend and would love to visit again!

Just returned from a wonderful 7 nights at this resort. We stayed in a water villa and the it was clean, comfortable and great position. The food was amazing especially as my partner was a vegetarian. Staff were so friendly and went out of their way to help you. Great for snorkelling and we saw some beautiful coral and fish. Make sure you have beach shoes or flippers and can be quite sharp. Definitely would recommend this beautiful place, we were sad to leave and hope to return.

We just spent two weeks in the Maldives of which one week was at Filitheyo. What a great hotel! Truly a beautiful hidden gem. If you want a real island experience, this is the place to go. Food is excellent, staff polite and ready to fulfil every request. Weather was great, a bit of wind but not enough to spoil the holiday. Snorkeling is great around the island and safe snorkel areas are clearly marked. There are “resident” Nurse sharks visiting at the jetty every night. The ideal place to relax, unwind and sip cocktails all day. The only way to get there is by seaplane which in itself is a bucket list experience. Will we visit again - DEFINATELY YES!
