I am going to try and keep this as factual as possible so as to help you make a decision about whether to book but before that I should say that we had an AMAZING time. The Maldives is truly breath taking and is a real experience.
So a little about us, we are thirty something professionals living in London. This is out first trip to the Maldives. We would definitely come back to the Maldives and to Bodu Hithi again.
Rooms - We stayed in the island villas (as this was the last room left for our dates) and was blown away. The rooms look exactly as they do on their website. If you can, do a couple of nights in the water villas. We had a quick look at an escape villa and the views were incredible. 50% of the villas are on stilts. We stayed in room 317. In our view this was a great room as your beach front was well secluded and had nice sandy area.
Food - we stayed on a half board basis (breakfast and dinner). The main buffet restaurant is called AIR and was the best quality buffet food we have had. Lots of choice. There is a massive Chinese contingent so there is a lot of Asian food. We loved that but something to bear in mind if not a fan.
Gym - the most breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean.
Spa - we didn't leave the island until 8.30pm so we chilled out by the spa and again the views were epic.
Snorkelling - I think you see more fish if you are in the water villas but we nonetheless got to see reef sharks and sting rays.
Excursions - they are a bit too expensive and put us off taking any on. Maybe if they were better priced we would have done some excursions.
Drinks - drinks can be pricey but we spent £150 at the end of the week which included 3 bottles of wine etc. not bad for the week.
All in all we LOVED this place. It's hard to imagine a resort better. The island is very small and picture perfect. We would not hesitate in coming back.
