Fantastic place! Staff is very helpful, rooms - clean, charming, enough space. Meal - is fantastic: catch of day, salads, sushi and sashimi with local reef fish and mango juice, so delicious;) In addition- good place for snorkeling. We met barracudas, small reef shark, nudibranchs, unicorns and many other during the snorkeling on house reef.

Whilst the Maldives is unsurprisingly expensive it is made up for by the levels of quality, especially food and service. I had a special birthday whilst there and they really surprised me with a couple of treats that were really pleasing. 11/10 for that! The bikes to get around the villas is an excellent aspect but we did have difficulty...

Have to admit it - in all the 18 Countries I have visited in the last 3-4 years, the Maldives tops the list of my all time favourites. The Residence is a perfect get away for couples. It is quiet and there is lots to do during the day. If you love snorkling be sure to check the tide times...

This was the perfect place to honeymoon - it was literally heaven on earth. I highly recommend The Residences - we loved it!! The staff was super friendly, the service was first-class, and obviously the location/scenery/atmosphere was UNREAL!

Beautiful property, Amazing Staff. Were courteous and always had a genuine warmth in their interaction. Lovely Beach side views. The Chef Harpreet and the restaurant in charge, Mr. Hafez were courteous and made it extra special to make us feel comfortable with some Indian delicacies. Great Swimming pool and loved the privacy that the beach bungalows had to offer.

Staff are very courteous and work hard to make your stay memorable. However the price of alcohol is unbelievable. Small beer is $11 in UK prices that's £22 for a pint of beer. Resort is beautiful if your tea total.

There can surely be no doubt this is an excellent luxury resort - just read the 500+ reviews on here! However, I suggest there are a few things to consider before you finalise the details of your booking. Time Your Arrival Carefully: Staff from The Residence will meet and greet you at Malé and arrange your onward transfer to the...
