Travellers' Choice
Among resorts in Maldives, Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort is the typical island epitomizing all that one dreams of when thinking of the Maldives. Located in a private island in the pristine South Ari Atoll region, approximately 25-minute seaplane flight away from Malé International Airport. With its small island charm, lush vegetation surrounded by powder-white soft sand, and a house reef that a myriad of tropical fish call home, the island is just over 350 metres in length and can be walked in just 10 minutes and a bit! Thatch-roofed villas inspired by local architecture are set amidst verdant gardens or are poised over the turquoise lagoon. Deceivingly modest exteriors hide worldly comforts and indulgences and all villas offer direct access to the beach or to the sea. Designed for couples seeking to rekindle their romance or for families looking to spend quality time together, Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort offers an experience that elegantly combines a Maldives from times-gone-by with the contemporary luxuries of the present, distinguishing it from other Maldives all inclusive resorts. At Maafushivaru, let us help you make memories that will be forever cherished.

Hotel's Favourite
Paradise in every sense of the word. We have recently returned from maafushivaru celebrating our 10 year anniversary, having visited for our honeymoon. Initially we wondered if the island could live up to our first experience 10 years ago. I have to say that it far surpassed it. The recent refurb is stunning. The aesthetics and detail of this island are perfect and the island is immaculately kept, to the point where grounds staff trimmed the grass with scissors to ensure accuracy. If the aesthetic isn’t enough, what really makes this such a magical place are the staff! Each and every one of the staff were amazing. This is true first class service. Nothing was too much trouble and always done with a genuine smile. Even the resort manager is present and takes the time to ask how your stay is. Having stayed in a water villa previously we decided to upgrade to a pool water villa with a sunset view (any odd number villa) and have to say that this really added to our experience, it is definitely worth the extra. The food…. Wow the food is just first class, something for everyone with 3 a la carte restaurants (Italian, Japanese and grill) and a buffet restaurant, there is something for everyone. I had a fillet steak at the grill that was just beautiful. You do need to book the restaurant’s though. The quality of the food is beautiful and we enjoyed every meal. We opted for the dine around all inclusive that includes all meals and drinks (branded drinks) and I would say this is a must as it would be extremely expensive to pay for your meals individually. Our average food bill was around $180-200. A beer and a cocktail was approximately $30. The island is a small island but does not, in any way feel crowded. Almost the opposite in fact. Each day there were only two or three couples on the beach. We used the spa twice during our stay. It is not cheap (approx $300-$400 for a couple massage) but well worth it to truly help you to relax in the most perfect setting. Again this needs to be pre booked. I also used the gym. It is very well equipped with new state of the art life fitness machines. The best compliment I could give this resort is that we really didn’t want to leave, to the point, like other reviews, it was emotional boarding the sea plane to leave! We will definitely return in the near future.

My husband and I spent two weeks at Maafushivaru from 26.07-09.08. Having originally booked in 2019, this visit was well overdue! We knew from reading the reviews that we wouldn’t be disappointed, however the only way you can fully understand what this island is like is by visiting. Words and pictures don’t do it justice! As many people have written, it really is the staff who make this island what it is. Their friendliness, helpful manner and good humour make you feel extremely welcome and nothing is too much for them. The time they take to chat to you, finding out about you and in turn telling their stories, is lovely. The service is faultless whilst at the same time the atmosphere is lovely and relaxed. After a long journey with a couple of hiccups along the way from the UK, we couldn’t have been met by more friendly staff. The resort manager is extremely visible and friendly each day and met us off the boat. We were then introduced to Vivi who I cannot speak more highly of. She was brilliant throughout our stay, looking after us, making dinner bookings and doing anything she could - all with a genuine smile on her face. We spent the first five nights in a beach pool villa (number 110) which was absolutely perfect, with stunning views and plenty of outside space around the pool as well as loungers to use on the beach. It felt like the beach was a private one! The villa is beautifully finished, with everything that you could possibly require and the housekeeping team work tirelessly, coming in twice a day. We then spent the remainder of our stay in a sunset water pool villa (number 307) which was also amazing! These villas really do have the ‘wow’ factor when you walk in. The sunset views - which you get from any odd number water villa- are fantastic. Again, the outside space is more than ample and they are extremely private. We felt that the split between the two villa types was a good choice as part of a two week stay as they offered different experiences. The food here is undoubtedly 5*. Each of the restaurants are lovely, offering real variety. Our favourite was Moodhu Grill. Again, service was fantastic. We really enjoyed lunchtimes and the extensive menu on offer, with daily specials. The Cuisine Gallery is also great with a huge selection at breakfast and for dinner. The whole island is immaculate with gardeners even using scissors to tidy borders! Any member of staff who you meet shows the utmost friendliness. They really are a credit to the island. This trip was a delayed honeymoon, which in turn meant we were actually celebrating our first anniversary as well as my 30th birthday. The ways in which these events were celebrated by staff with decorations in the villas, candle lit beach dinner with birthday cake and an anniversary dessert at Moodhu was unexpected and added to our stay. It definitely is the little touches that make a big difference. We enjoyed a sunset cruise, snorkelling trip, paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkelling. There is certainly plenty to do, or equally, nothing at all if you wish to! We couldn’t recommend Maafushivaru enough. Thank you for a perfect two weeks. Katey and Chris

Honestly, the attention of all the resort workers is super good. They have had a lot of details with us, the views of the hotel are incredible and they have everything well taken care of. Super good food, super fun and diverse activities. But above all, it is worth mentioning the two boys who personally attended us. Hasan was with us for a short time but he treated us great at all times. and Navaz spent almost the entire stay with us and we had more contact with him, unbeatable attention, super attentive and dedicated to his work. of all the staff we stayed with the attention of Navaz and if one day we return it will be for him Unbeatable our entire stay there.

This is for everyone at Maafushivaru island. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This beautiful island. It's beautiful people, our family.

We have to say we have never tasted such exquisite food. I loved coming to Cuisine Gallery every morning and to be overwhelmed with happiness by your sensational chefs! All the smiles!

We booked our honeymoon to Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort back in September 2019 for July 2021, however due to covid we had to delay our honeymoon to July 2022 but it was worth the wait. Upon arrival to Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort you are greeted with a warm welcome by all members of staff, including the general manager who greets you off the boat. You are then welcomed to check in, we had Kim who gave us a tour of the island, got us all checked in and was our main point of contact throughout the week. All of the food at Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort was absolutely amazing. I am a vegetarian so was a bit worried I would be stuck for choice, but that was absolutely not the case. We dined at all 3 restaurants twice during our stay and also the buffet restaurant. The food at all restaurants was absolutely outstanding. The breakfast buffet was also fantastic, there was so much choice. The lunch menu at the water bar was also fantastic, there was so much choice and also a daily specials menu. We went all-inclusive which was definitely worth the money. The staff at Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort are definitely what sets it apart from other resorts. Each member of staff always stops to speaks to you, greets you with a smile and genuinely wants to know how you are, where you are from and how your holiday is going. The staff genuinely treat each person as royalty and will go out of their way to ensure you are having the best time. Kim who booked us in and who was our main point of contact throughout the holiday was fantastic, always checking if we were okay and if there was anything she could do. Every single one of the servers at all of the dining places were fantastic; some names which we came to know were Chara and Muflih who served us multiple times throughout our stay. We were genuinely sad to leave the resort due to all the amazing staff. We booked one of the beach villas with a pool and it was amazing. The room was absolutely spotless and the staff did an excellent job of cleaning inside the villa each day and the pool. The room is very fresh and clean. The room felt spacious and the aircon was much appreciated on hot days. We absolutely loved having the privacy of our own pool with just a couple footsteps to the beach. Due to covid delaying our honeymoon, it meant that we were away for our first anniversary. The hotel take a note of your wedding date upon arrival, but we weren’t expecting them to acknowledge our anniversary at all. On the day of our anniversary when we went for our tea that night, we were told that there was a bottle of sparkling wine for us due to it being our anniversary and there was also a lovely heart dessert with “Happy Anniversary” written on it. When we returned to our room there was a lovely card and also “Happy Anniversary” written on the bed. We felt so spoilt and can’t thank the staff enough for making it so special. I would not hesitate to recommend Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort – it is paradise. Many Thanks Mr and Mrs Sim (Villa 105) 18.07.22 – 27.07.22

My husband and I had booked this in 2019 and finally made it, post Covid, for our Honeymoon this month and it was well worth the wait! Words can't describe how beautiful this place is. If you are in any doubt whether to book or not, do it! We decided to stay 5 nights in a Duplex Pool Villa and 5 nights in an Over Water Villa - both were beautiful! Spacious, clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed. The island itself is beautiful and kept in immaculate condition. Teams of staff work hard to maintain this and do a wonderful job. We ate at all the restaurants several times. Our wonderful host Kim, had very helpfully pre-booked us for the first 4 nights of our break after which we could choose what we liked and re-book to suit ourselves. The food in all three restaurants, plus the extensive buffet, was of a very high standard and absolutely delicious! We really enjoyed all the restaurants and can't agree on a favourite - try them all and see. Don't forget to try the teppanyaki experience - great fun and lovely food! The Waterside Bar is also fab for food during the day. There is something for everyone with appetising daily specials for added variety. Snorkeling is a must - give it a go. The sea life is stunning and we never tired seeing such am incredible variety of fish and sea creatures. We managed to see dolphins on the sunset cruise and had a go at kayaking too. All equipment provided and the staff at the diving centre were all very knowledgeable and helpful. We are not divers but spoke to other couples who were, and they spoke exceptionally highly about their diving experience. The Spa is out of this world. We booked a couples treatment for a few days after we arrived. It was so good we booked a second massage for later in our honeymoon! The best massages I've ever had! Again, all the staff were so lovely and genuinely want you to have a really good experience. The main asset to this island is the wonderful staff. I've honestly never experienced friendliness, helpfulness and an atmosphere like it. Every single person greets you with a smile. From the minute you step foot off the boat you are welcomed home - and it really feels like it. Mahesh and his bar staff are amazing. Their cocktail creations are out of this world! Chamila, Dipendra, Kalana, Gihan and all the guys were always so welcoming and we were more than happy to try out all and any of the cocktails they made for us! Chara looked after us in the bar (and restaurants) always with a beautiful smile and ensured we had everything we needed. Our host, Kim, was always on hand if we needed anything (not that we had one single problem!) and would check in that everything was it should be and Chef Chris ensured we were always well fed! I could go on forever but I won't - just go and see for yourself. It was a perfect honeymoon and the trip of a lifetime.

Stop looking and just book here! I spent so much time researching where to go in The Maldives and so glad we chose to come to Maafushivaru. This place is beyond perfect in absolutely every way. First of all the staff are absolutely amazing - every single one of them - the service is beyond exceptional and smiles and the highest level of service awaits you wherever you go! We booked the all inclusive ++ and would highly recommend it. The over the water bungalow with a pool is magnificent - amazing bathroom, comfortable bed, beautiful pool and deck and easy access to go swimming in the lagoon. Everything about this boutique resort is of the highest quality. I'm not quite sure where to really start - there is so much to do if you want - the water sports center is brilliant - Lynn, who is a marine biologist and so knowledgable and fun took us out multiple times and I had the dream of a lifetime, swimming with wild dolphins which is very rare here, then manta rays, turtles and finally the elusive Whale shark. Go on the bigger excursions - they are worth every cent! The food was exceptional - fabulous buffet breakfast and then the other 3 restaurants Cielo, Umi and Moodhu - all mind blowing -I felt like each night we were dining in top end restaurants with such varied and exquisite food. The bar staff and service is also superb - greeted with smiles and the most amazing array of cocktails. To be honest, leaving was the hardest thing of the 9 day stay and I am already missing the smiling, amazingly attentive staff, spectacular food and drinks as well as the white sandy beaches which are kept immaculately clean, the beautiful lush gardens and the aqua blue water. Treat yourself to a cake or ice cream at the library lounge - so delicious - I went to celebrate my 50th Birthday with a friend and was spoilt rotten and everything from beginning to end was more than i could have ever dreamt of. I apologize that I can't remember everyone's names to thank properly, so wrong as I left feeling like you were all friends. I am dreaming of when I can go back next time and will definitely be going for 2 weeks. Phenomenal! I've run out of effusive words to use - I have travelled all over the world and this was without question the best vacation I have ever had. Book it, go for as long as you can and do the all inclusive++ Things to take with you - Really good hair conditioner/ hair masks if you have long locks - the sea will annihilate your hair! I am so glad we took some pool floaties for the pool and lagoon. Great to have with you. Don't stress about the weight limit of your bags for the seaplane - you are able to pay $5 per kg and well worth it!
