My stay covered the first week of June 2012. Firstly the weather, as it was my first time outside of the 'high season'. I was pleasantly surprised, I went with the idea that it would rain and that any sunshine would be a bonus. We had hazy sunshine, full sunshine, partial cloud and even a couple of showers during the...

My wife and I spent 10 nights here in January 2012. Was a brilliant holiday with fantastic service in an amazing location. Tips: - Sign up for as many of the snorkelling expeditions as possible, particularly the night snorkelling! - Bring a long-sleeved t-shirt and long shorts for the snorkelling - protects you from the very strong sun. - Hire...

Firstly I want to say we had a fantastic Holiday and if I were to rate our experience overall I would give it 5 stars. However, in an attempt to be impartial and making comparisons to other islands we have visited the resort was slightly lacking in some areas. If you have already booked to go to Maaf, or it...

What a great little island. This was our 14th trip to the Maldives and we think we have finally found the best all round destination. Whilst some islands have slightly better food, some better AI, some better house reef diving and some with bigger rooms we felt that Maaf was best overall. The beach villas were spacious with enough storage...

I have always dreamt of going on holiday to the Maldives and this year we decided to treat ourselves and booked a stay at Maafushivaru based on the reviews here.

Having never been to the Maldives before I'm not surprised we were almost speechless as we arrived for our honeymoon but that shouldn't take away from what was a quite wonderful vacation on a beautiful island run by a professional company with a lovely, personal set of staff. If I had one reservation on arrival, it was the food going...

We have just returned from a week on Maafushivaru. I'm not going to write a lengthy review as I have little to add to what has already been said so thought I'd keep it brief and attach lots of photos! A previous reviewer mentioned the 'polished concrete' finish in the bathroom; I can't say I was keen on that either...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Reached by a picturesque flight over the mysterious atolls of the Maldives, Maafushivaru is a quiet island knitted with lush flora surrounded by pure white sandy beaches and incredible turquoise lagoon. Next to the resort is the tiny desert island of Lonubo, exclusive to Maafushivaru guests. A visit to this beautiful island is a must. You can choose from daily visits for basking in the sun and snorkeling the beautiful reef, or ultimately book to stay overnight, an island just for you and your beloved, even if only for a night. Slumber at your choice of three distinct villas. Beach Villas are sited on postcard perfect beaches whilst the Water Villas are built on stilts over the Indian Ocean providing sunset and sunrise vistas that will be forever etched in your memory. For a fun filled holiday, the Pool Villa is the right pick for families or friends travelling together, featuring two separate villas with a shared pool. Summon the bon vivant inside of you with the delectable fare. Cuisine Gallery showcases a potpourri of dishes from all over the world. While 135° East is your key for an authentic Japanese cuisine displaying the art of teppanyaki and the hibachi steakhouse. Sip favourite sunset cocktails at Water Bar with eclectic evening entertainment ranging from Maldivian evenings, to laser shows and disco nights under the starlit sky. Located on the water’s edge, instill a sense of calm and quietude at the Spa with signature product line Voya focusing on healing therapies and rituals. Explore rich underwater life on the house reefs of Maafushivaru and Lonubo, where fish teem and corals bloom colourfully. Dive with whale sharks and mantas in famed spots down south. Discover the epitome of Maldives – Maafushivaru. ... more   less
