We have a fantasic stay at Embudu.
We have stayed at two other Maldives resorts (Filitheyo and Biyadhoo) and our visit to Embudu was our summer 2012 treat. We chose this Island mainly due to price, run through Thomson and it was recommended as having a house reef.
We stayed in a superior room and they all seemed to have sea views, they were recently refurbished and the room had everything we needed. The walls were a little thin so if you had noisy neighbours it would have been annoying but luckily we didn’t.
This island is smaller than the other islands we stayed on and seemed to be more populated. Although this wasn’t a big issue.
With the food, I think you get what you pay for. There was certainly lots of choice and some days were better than others. Overall I think the food was good and certainly better than our stay at Biyadhoo.
Dive centre was good although lacked trips to interesting dive sites, the house reef was fantastic and probably better than Fithitheyo and Biyadhoo. We saw sharks, rays, turtles, morays, napoleon all from snorkelling.
Boat trip from the airport was short as it is the second closest island to Male, this meant there was quite a bit of air and sea traffic past the island but again not a big issue.
Population on the island were older than other islands and less honeymoon couples. There was very little evening entertainment and the whole vibe was very quiet (which we quite enjoyed) although could have been improved with a live band occasionally.
We were full board basis and I think the upgrade to all inclusive was $35 pppn. We were not big drinkers so managed to stay well within this but the drinks were relatively expensive. Beers were 65Mr for 400ml spirits were Mr58 and spites 40Mr all before 6% tax and 10% service charge.
