It was first time for my wife and me visiting Maldives and what I know for sure that we are going to come again. Everything was just perfect starting from the room, restaurant and reception services and ending the atmosphere around, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, incredible snorkeling every single day, also house reef has huge abundance of fish swimming around. If you would love to go to Maldives at you first time then this hotel is the best choice. We were staying at Water Villa then moved to Water Villa with pool, both types of Villa are great enough to get over satisfied, they are really huge and contemporary. The hotel staff is very friendly and ready to help you anytime. I would like to mention and say big thanks to: Sheena May for assisting us in any inquiry, Ashraf and Esan for that perfect restaurant service, Safa for explaining about the hotel and its activities. Also the Duty and F&B managers for their help with arrangement of my proposal to my wife! And by the end I would love to tell everyone that the food in all of the restaurant including buffet too was juts delicious, fresh and it has a very big choice of dishes Thank you LTI Maafushivaru, looking forward to come again 🙏😍❤️

Hotel's Favourite
“Welcome home, you can take off your mask…” How sweet it is to hear those words upon arrival at Maafushivaru after a 20+ hours journey to get there. I feel Maafushivaru need an extensive review so if you do not have time to read, just bear in mind that : 1-The island is a true paradise, offering everything you dream of when thinking about the Maldives 2-The hotel has been totally refurbished less than a year ago with taste and high quality materials and furniture 3-The team works hard (and succeed) in delivering a wonderful experience that we would rate above expectations Having said that, if you want more details, her they are : Considering the relatively wide spread of atolls and big choice of hotels we have found it hard to choose the perfect atoll and the perfect hotel to experience the full potential of the Maldives. We all expect clear blue waters, a large lagoon, white sand beaches, good food and for me being a certified scuba diver I needed the hotel to be close to manta rays and whale shark spots. Let’s make it clear Maafushivaru ticks all those boxes and more… The Hotel : Located on a small atoll, it offers a small number of rooms compared to other resorts (75 from my understanding) in 4 categories : beach villas, beach villas with pool, over water villa and over water villa with pool (the one we chose). Our villa was spacious, very well designed, the view to the lagoon and a small island was to die for, the infinity pool very pretty. It is clean, brand new as I said, the king size bed is and pillows are very comfy. Nothing to say except that the toilet is located in the bathroom separated only with a glass door where you can see through. It may be a detail but I have never liked this setting 😊 The bar/restaurants : The bar/dining area is furnished with Italian designers pieces, it gives a view on the infinity pool overseeing the white sand beach and clear blue water from the lagoon. The drink menu is extensive, you will get all cocktails you can think of, the wine and champagne menu is large enough to make you happy ! You have a choice of 3 or 4 restaurants (a grill, an Italian inspired restaurant and a teppanyaki) besides the buffet which is really impressive. A large choice of freshly cooked meals, from Indian cuisine, to grilled meat and fish, pastas, dim sum, sushi…more than you need. We were on a half board package so we dined every evening at the restaurant, it was never boring. My wife was even very very happy to get ready for diner every night ! The staff is well trained, smiling and polite. They are always around to serve you when you need something but they are not pushy at all which I personally appreciate. Christian the F&B manager is always on the floor making sure you are enjoying at any time. Him and his team truly deliver a top quality service; I want to emphasize that my wife and I are really picky on the details and honestly there is nothing negative we could spot during our stay. It is rare enough (even for 5 stars hotels…) to highlight. The dive center : Once again, top quality. Franck the dive center manager and Timea the instructor are making a perfect team (they are a lovely couple) working together as one to make sure you’re having fun and being safe. You are being taken care of by them and the boat crew from the moment you step foot on the boat, they always choose the best dives and locations depending on the currents. I dove every day (approx. 10 dives in total) and never at the same spot ! Maafushivaru atoll is located close to a large number of Thilas (underwater islands), and 1 hour away only from manta point and south ari atoll where you can spot a whale shark if you are lucky. You have high chances to spot both of them in a week time, which I did 😊. I have been diving all over the world (Polynesia, carribean, meditteranean, Thailand…) and I am confident to say it is the best diving center and the best crew I ever had. Thanks again guys you are great professionals ! Overall, you can tell and feel that Pierre the General Manager is a very good human being doing a tremendous job at spreading a good energy to his team. He is a very good professional managing his resort as his own home where you feel welcomed and get this cocoon like feeling during the length of your stay. My wife and I have been travelling intensively over the last decade to 5 stars hotels only all over the world. We have very high expectations and a high level of attention to details and during the 8 days of our stay, never were we left down by the amazing people of Maafushivaru. For us, it greatly deserve a “way above expectations” mention. Planning our next trip to the Maldives, no way we would even think about looking for another place and team to stay with. Just BRAVO and THANK YOU guys ! See you again soon. Best regards, David and Anastasia.

We as a couple stayed one week at Water Villa “all inclusive”. It was perfect holiday. The food is super delicious, the service, the rooms are stylish and modern. The staff always very friendly and helpful! Starting from the beginning the greeting was very warm and thank you to Safa for showing us the resort and explaining everything. There are 3 restaurants with different choice of food which is amazing, the food is exceptional, 11 out of 10! Big thank to all the restaurant service, and special thank to Ashraf, the person who showed what the excellent service is! The resort provides snorkeling equipment for the whole stay for free, as well as with “all inclusive” package we enjoyed free trip to snorkeling Safari, kayaking and paddle board. It was unforgettable experience and it will be pleasure to come back again!

A dream hotel in paradise in the Maldives. We visited this resort in May and were completely surprised that such a perfect hotel exists on this island. Starting with the hotel management - i.e. manager, restaurant, service, diving school .. (you can't even list everything) it is a perfect hotel. We didn't find anything that could have been improved in the 3 weeks we were there. I used to be to companies and I have to say - congratulations to everyone for this masterpiece! I've had a lot to do in the Maldives myself, so I know a lot of places. But this hotel in this square is perfect The gastronomic concept is amazing. Every wish is fulfilled. The entire staff is highly motivated and genuinely friendly. You can feel how happy they are to be able to work there. The diving school deserves special praise as well. I was a diving instructor myself and I know what I'm talking about. The dive sites, which you already knew from before, are a piece of sugar on the outer reef for every diver and snorkeler. We saw a whale shark 4 times and were in good hands with the diving instructors Frank and Timmy. This vacation was a dream for us. We can only recommend this hotel. It was reopened in August last year We'll be back 😊 Personal thank you. Resort manager: Pierre Leif Restaunt: Manage - Christian Eggert Reception: Constantia Bar service: Paulina, Vívian diving school: Timi and Frank Marketing: Sheena May And everyone else who works in this hotel and some made the stay so beautiful.

'Welcome home, you can take off your mask…” Those were the first words I heard when I arrived home at the resort. Visiting the Maldives has always been a big dream. With zero expectations my friend and I flew to paradise which was located somewhere in the middle of the Arabian sea. From the moment we arrived on the island we immediately felt at home. Not because we just arrived at paradise, but because everyone was so open and welcoming. A small remote island with turquoise water, powdery sand, palm trees, and exceptional service. This was more than just a resort. This was a dream come true! In particular, I would like to say a huge thank you to all people for making this trip unforgettable. Lots of love for all the staff. Thank you for your friendly smile, kindness, and good care. Your good deeds and generosity have inspired me. You have shown that we need to unite more and be less divided 🧡👏🏽 Thank you all for contributing to one of the best days of my life!🧡😁 Until we meet again...😉
