We were on Holiday Island Resort at the beginning of May for ten days. The weather was not so good how last year. From ten days was two raining, so we could not make our trip on ocean. Sun island resort and Holiday island resort are one company, but the size of Holiday is much more smaller, which is good,... More

Decided to stay here overnight just so we can experience a "Maldives Resort". The beach is amazing, the water, aquamarine. We were set on one of the rooms facing the main beach, but the beach is quite far from the room. The villa looks a bit dated, but it's decent and clean. I love the snorkeling area at the back...

My friends and I stayed for 5 days on its neighboring island, Maamigili Island, and decided to stay for a night here. One night on our beach villa was worth three nights on our guesthouse on the local island which we totally understand. The resort was the "typical" Maldives resort that you see on photos. Sun, sea and sand. It... More

Spend a day visit at the resort. The beach is nice on one side but on the other is a complete wrecked coral reef. Not pleasent to walk and no fish to see. The food is pricyvand not very tasty. Also very close to airport and harbor which ruin the island experience

We have been fortunate enough to visit Holiday Island on three occasions and that is the first point to make - we keep going back so it can't be all that bad! Holidaying in the Maldives is a very personal experience - some people want desertion and tranquillity; others want lots to do; others want 5 star luxury. You can... More

This island is a natural treasure with all the beaches and water, a real paradise!!! Travelling to Maamigili was easy and convenient, not 20kg limitation due to their own airline transport.

We have been to a number of resorts in the Maldives. This is one of the worst due to: a) The beach b) The transfers and c) The 'Private Beach' About 40% of the beach is sandy and suitable for swimming the rest is coral infested and you need coral shoes to use. The coral is very sharp and can... More
