We really enjoyed this resort! The hotel had been opened in June 2019 and everything was perfect, the staff was really friendly and the tropical greenery had been greatly preserved. We loved the bicycles provided to all hotel guests, which allowed us to visit all parts of the resort. There is a lovely little deserted island in the middle of a 1 km bridge connecting two islands of the resort - a great place to celebrate a wedding or another important event of your life. In addition, there is a fantastic Spa by Clarins with highly professional staff providing beatiful treatments such as massage, detox and contouring, facials, yoga and meditation - our family of four tried many of the services and can highly recommend them! Your holiday destination in the Maldives could not get any better than this if you enjoy quality, nature and great services. Furthermore, the atmosphere at the resort was really tranquil!

Very Happy considering we went to the sister residence across the bridge that they built to get direct access. by the way the bridge is a kilometer long and very nice in crossing it as you are above shallow water and can spot fish and see bats crossing

The Residence is truly a 5-star resort and lived up to the hype! We stayed for 5 nights. The time flew by. I would stay for a week next time.

On the Standard AI Plan and F&B were very generous in quality and quantity. Christmas Eve Dinner was epic! Overwater restaurant was outstanding and Li Bai was excellent. We are vegetarian, and there were MANY choices, including a special menu at Li Bai! If you like to drink well (and we do) the alcohol is top-shelf. The wines were just average. The menu at Cafe Del Sol was meh -- we were surprised that even on AI they charge extra for tapas? The breakfast buffet at Falhumaafushi is much better than Dhigurah. Wait staff need additional training. They would get the order right 2/3 of the time, because they try to remember, rather than write orders down.

Bicycles, snorkeling and water sports were so much fun, but coral bleaching depleted a once colorful reef. Sunset Yoga doesn't face sunset (?) but Couples Spa Massage (overwater) may have been the best massage of my life!

Getting in/out of the Maldives is VERY frustrating. Plan to lose half a day in both directions so plan accordingly.

Buggy transport system needs a serious rethink. Resort wants you to take their (larger) shuttle bus, but waiting times were 15+ minutes and the schedule requires a PhD to decipher. Buses only travel in one direction and can easily take 20+ minutes (not including waiting).

I spent months researching where to stay and am VERY glad we chose here! Just book it!

Ii just returned from spending 6 days at the Residence Dhigurah with my family and I have to say that paradise really exists and it is there!
We stayed at 3 sunset villas and I have to say that the rooms were absolutely amazing! Huge and with all types of details. The bathrooms were luxurious and so big I have never seen anything alike, and beleive me, I have travelled a lot and visited great resorts!
The villas, all with their private pools, overlooked the most beautiful beach I have ever seen, with a great sense of privacy, it was really like a post card!
All villas had their own bikes which we used yo move around the resort or to visit the other Residence hotel separated by a stunning 1km bridge over the water.
It is definetily one of the best and most beautiful resorts I have ever visited.
On the down side, and I think probably due to the fact that the hotel is quite new, the service in some parts was extremely slow although the staff was mostly very nice. A special mention to Ifham at the main dining room and to all the staff at the sports center.
After a very long and tiring trip, the check in was extremely slow and frustrating.
At the restaurants, if you did not do the buffet plan , service was desperately slow (except for the Cantonese restaurant). I guess this is something that some more experience will be able to solve.
One suggestion: some sunbeds on the beach for each room would be very convenient, there are two sunbeds on each villa porch and none on the beach so if you want to use one on the beach, you have to move one and they are very heavy.
