Great resort, great balance between luxury and casual atmosphere.
Diving was extraordinary and the dive team at the resort is exceptional.
An excellent experience overall - although one area to improve is to offer all inclusive packages to visitors - which is not currently offered for Europeans so additional expenses can run quite high.

Room Tip: Wonderful water villas - well worth the cost with private swimming pools ++++

The moment we set our foot on the island, all our needs were been taken off. Thanks to Mae from Alpha Maldives for the recommendations and assistance. We were escorted to the bus park and board on a very comfortable bus to the Halaveli Lounge. We were greeted by smiling staffs and cold towels which is very refreshing after our 5 hrs flight.
When reaching the island we were then greeted by multi racial staffs at the jetty and were brought to the villa in a buggy by friendly Marie. We were allocated at villa 86 which was at the far end of the jetty and it was just amazing. Sun set was awesome and surrounding was very peaceful with only sounds of seawaves and definitely no noise pollution. While writing this I am still in Halaveli and everyday are full of surprises be it by the staffs here or by the "guest" from the sea. We sighted sharks, manta rays and school of colourful reef fishes at the villa. The feel was beyond any description of words and it was just BEAUTIFUL. I will definitely come back to Halaveli if I plan any trip to Maldives in future.
Special mention to staffs at Jahaz Lounge, Jamal and Rasheed for their warm welcome everytime we dine in.
Also to our room service guy which always help to service our room twice daily with effort of surprise us with different setting each day.
Thumbs up to everyone mentioned in my write up and this what I called "Service with a Class".

Room Tip: Villa with even numbers are great as it has sunset view.

it was a lifetime experinece, which I could never forget.
The hotel rooms were great, the staff was really helpful, the sea was perfect.
Even though it was a low season I enjoyed it a lot with a wonderful weather (luckily)
The rains only stayed really short.

Room Tip: water villas are the lowest prices category and I think the best category with private rooms.

We chose Halaveli based on comments of several websites and blogs, and it didn't disappoint me. There's lots of information about restaurants menu, excursions, spa available online, so we could be well prepared beforehand.
Constance lounge at the airport was very cozy. We boarded the island on May 5th, 2014, and greeted by Mike, who is the guest relations supervisor and adept at Chinese. She showed us around the facilities and our water villa No. 75, located near the distal end of longest jetty of Maldives.
Our water villa is a good place for beginners of snorkeling. Sea level was between knees and waist. Abundant coral reef and marine life were just less than 20 meters of our villa.
We enjoyed our breakfast and dinner in Jahaz restaurant. The only disadvantage is that the breakfast is too monotonous. I recommended Jing restaurant for dinner, and every customer of Halaveli should try at least once. Great atmosphere, delicious Asian food, and considerate service could all be found there. A great variety of cocktails in Jing bar are also amazing, but smoking area should be separated. We spent out last afternoon in Jahaz bar, and were astonished by its famous Halaveli burger.
We booked excursions at the TGI diving center. Snorkeling with the turtles was just in front of water villas of Kandolhu island. We saw lots of fish, and two kinds of turtles. We also participated in traditional night fishing. Unfortunately, no one caught any fish in that night. We asked one of crews about fishing skills, but he seemed not good at speaking English.
We booked Ayurvedic massage at the spa center, and that was a great experience. We enjoyed the authentic massage skills and watched fishes swimming just beneath the floor.
There was a party in the Jahaz bar on Tuesday night. We were greeted by Raj and decent cocktails. We talked about the brand concept of Constance group and Halaveli.
We were told that our seaplane schedule was 17:50, and we should be at main reception one our before our flight. Actually, when we showed up, the staff just said that we could stay in the hospitality lounge. We could have enjoyed the beach more!
After all, we would plan another stay after next renovation.

Ever wondered what paradise would be like? Well in that case you should definetely visit Constance Halaveli :)

My wife and I just spend our honeymoon at Halaveli and we have no regrets what so ever. We stayed for 8 nights in a water villa (number 86) and during our stay we felt very well taken care off. The water villas are exactly as luxurious as they look on the pictures.

The dining in Constance Halaveli is fantastic. Every evening there is a new theme at the Jahaz restaurant (which is the main restaurant on the resort) and there is therefore something for everyone. We used the Jahaz restaurant almost every day while we stayed on the resort and we only have nice things to say about the food and the staff at that place.

We also tried the two other restaurants at the resort (Jing & Meeru) and the food and service at those places are also very good.

Also the In Villa Dining is an experience one should try. Excellent food (there is a great variety to choose from) brought to your villa and nothing to do but enjoy while looking at the amazing surroundings :)

While we stayed at Constance Halaveli we were on 4 Excursions trips (2 Snorkeling, 1 Fishing and 1 Dolphin Adventure). The people at TGI, like every one else on the resort, is very serviceminded and we were very well threated. My wife being 3 months pregnant during our stay sometimes didn't feel well, but the guys on the boats were very helpful and nice to her during those periods.

The Spa we also had to try and again we have nothing but good things to say. It was a very relaxing and joyful experience.

A small mistake made on our bill the second day of our stay (some drinks that had been ordered by another villa) was quickly resolved by Mr Mohamed Rasheed (the restaurant manager at Jahaz) but since this was actually the only small glitch we experienced and the problem was solved quickly and professionally, we have nothing bad to say about Constance Halaveli.

In conclusion - if you ever wondered what paradise would be like, if you like good weather, sand under your feet, service from the moment you step on to the resort and in generel just want to spoil yourself - then go to Constance Halaveli, do not wait - just go :)

Brought to you by Mr and Mrs Olsen - just you people at Halaveli wait, we will be back someday :)

We came to Maldives for 10 days, we started the vacation from another resort in North atoll and it's a wise decision to come to Constance Halaveli as a second destination! The spacious villa is great with high privacy and stunning view, the resort is less crowded so it's quiet and allow you to relax, all venues are clean and tidy, the housekeeping team did a very good job. They refilled the minibar twice a day, keeping all the refreshment ready without calling to the operator. All staff are friendly with smile all the time. We had 10 dives in Halaveli, escorted by a team of wonderful diving guides (Rei, Julia, Esther), their diving briefings were the most professional and cheerful ones we have ever had, they are extremely friendly, passionate, professional, and most importantly they paid high attention to guests' safety, it's enjoyable seeing them everyday when we go diving to different dive sites, even the boat boys are very sincere and helpful. Besides diving centre, all staff from Housekeeping, guest relations (Miki and Annastasia) and restaurant (Flarion & Mathieu) are extremely helpful and passionate, the meals are wonderful (thanks to Chef Lai for the best omelet i have ever tried), the grilled steak and tiger prawns at Meeru are wonderful, there are wide variety of food for the breakfast at the same restaurant (Jahaz) so that you won'tt feel bored, the environment at Jing restaurant is also stunning and cannot be missed! The management is very sweet that we had arranged the rose bubble bath on the last night we stayed there, complemented by bedtime snacks. There are a lot of programs arranged by the management team, e.g. Sunset cocktail party, the management team and the representatives from different department greeted the guests at the beach, mingling with the guests during sunset were highly appreciated. They had a fish feeding activity so that you can see sharks, stingrays and lots of fishes easily, the starry night at Halaveli was amazing, it's the most memorable moment I had in my honeymoon. In general, this is the best resort we have ever stayed and we would recommend to all honeymooners for their once-in-a-life-time experience.
