One of these still magic places. I have visited 90+ nations during the years, seen and experienced plenty. What we found on this quaint island is truely extraordinary. The transfer from Male takes appr. 30 - 50 minutes by boat, depending on the boat type. Staff from all the various departements are very dedicated and always helpful. The rooms in... More

We went there for our honeymoon. Boat from male airport to the hotel arrived on time. There was a heavy rain at that time,but they made sure that we had a safe journey. It was midnight when we arrived there, but the staff provided a warm welcome. The water bunglow was really comfortable and the view was beautiful. It's a... More

Embudu is a perfect honeymoon getaway in the Maldives for the budget traveler who is seeking comfort and privacy and can do without the opulent luxuries of the Maldivian 5* resorts. The resort is well maintained but not unnecessarily manicured, the beach rooms where we stayed were cottage type.They were air conditioned and spacious. The food spread was primarily European....

A lovely little island on which to enjoy the Maldives. The beach is lovely and the hotel is a great place for a day visit. The buffet lunch was quite good though there wasn't much variety in the seafood on offer. The hotel is clean, the service good and the staff friendly and helpful.

This was our first experience of the Maldives and I can't praise it enough. It was everything we expected and more, friendly, clean, hot and great food. The beaches are mainly little coves and you get the feeling that you are the only ones on the island. Snorkelling was amazing, swimming with black tip sharks, turtles, eagle rays and an... More

My wife and I chose Embudu resort at a last-minute deal of packaged travel. And we concluded that Embudu was a wise and most appropriate place for us to stay and go diving in several dive sites. Employees are so courtycieous and dive masters, especially, Lisies who attended us all the way, were very welcoming all the guests on the... More
