I was here for honeymoon early June. I am pleased to say the resort (just 45 min away from airport by speedboat) is indeed as good as the previous reviews that I have read in tripadvisors. Food: ( I am writing more on this as I found the information was pretty lacking on previous reviews) Just choose half board unless... More

My wife and I have just returned from a glorious 2 week stay on Makunudu. As with any resort there are a few things that I would probably look to improve, but my impressions are overwhelmingly positive. The Island has a very natural feel to it, they have done a remarkably good job of hiding any signs of civilization, with... More

This is our sixth visit to the Maldives. We come for snorkelling (4-6 hours a day!), rest in the form of reading and sunbathing on a beautiful beach, relaxation and a bit of a pamper. We don't go for swimming pools, loud bars, discos and canteen like dinners. Makunudu one of the very few remaining, truly peaceful natural islands in... More

We've visited the island two times. For our second visit, they replaced the number of our villa with the wooden board with our names, and arranged a free romantic dinner. That was so sweet! I really liked the decor inside the villas. We have visited other islands with polished tables and glass chairs, but they all lack that wonderful rustic... More

We visited Makunudu in August 2014 (I kept 2015 because I didn't have the option of "August 2014") and it was our first time in Maldives. Makunudu is where we fell in love with this country and its beauty.
