September 2012 we returned to Hudhuranfushi for the fifth time since our first trip in 2006!
We have seen a few changes over the years, water bungalows, change in management, refurbished rooms, but come Xmas every year when we plan our next holiday, one place always stands out as a great location for tropical luxury and great surf! Now that Thomson no longer feature this hotel, the price has rocketed and I guess will continue to do so and it's not 4*, more like 3.5* with the beautiful Indian ocean, great surf and peaceful beaches rated 10*!
The surf is perfect for the mature surfer (52) and son (14) to enjoy relatively safe and fun world class waves, without being dragged over fire coral reefs and delaing with violent locals!
Our waiter, Abdullah has been looking after us each year for 4 years, as indeed have Rich and Amy, the surf guides! Rich has a passing resemblance to Kelly Slater and probably would give him a run for his money in those waves!
Ignore the negative reviews on here, chill out in paradise, enjoy the relaxed vibe, tip the guys working in the bar area and don't go taking photos of the grouting and plumbing!More
