A wonderful time had by my family at this beautiful resort over Easter. Everything from the trip to the resort on arrival by luxury catamarn to the rooms, restaurants and surroundings are amazing and combine to make for a truly exceptional break. Easter shows and experiences were put on for kids and lots of fun and the resort is not short of ways to entertain the whole family with water sports, a half submarine, ray fish feeding and lots more. The departure experience is also outstanding where check out happens in room and the hotel staff remain by your side providing great service all the way to passport control at Male airport! It's a luxury all inclusive and when our one minor criticism was made that this didn't include room service as we have young children, the problem was immediately resolved with the highest professionalism and a highly personal approach from the GM Luisa, front office manager, Jaufer and other staff who all took time to introduce themselves personally and swiftly make our family's experience the best it could be throughout our time there. Anas, provided us a dedicated butler service throughout and made himself available at all times via Whats App and always responded within minutes! Overall, I couldn't recommend it more and we are certainly aiming to make a return. Thank you very much to Luisa, Jaufer, Anas and the rest of the team for your wonderful hospitality at the Ozen Bolifushi!

Hotel's Favourite
…A Michelin guide expert being sent to paradise to inspect a kitchen, a bar, service and a lifestyle there? I cannot say for that paradise mentioned in new and old testaments – in both cases virtual with real sucrifice, but for Ozen Reserve Bolifushi I feel relaxed. Charming Mrs. Luise, the GM of the resort, and her team must be proud of their operation. GM is brave as admiral Nelson coming every morning into open and rough sea, i.e., having breakfast and a word with clients from all over the world. A complaint – no, a wish… will be heard and satisfied; some will get free speaking English classes. Human bodies are designed for this sort of inspections, do not you know? So, let’s start with backs, i.e., villas, beds, seats, sunbeds and pools. My family enjoyed Villa #216. No lawyer, even from UK, can challenge that title. Many other resorts may call “villa” any shelter which has a roof and a toilet - walls upon separate request. Villas in Ozen are spacious both inside and outside. Special applauds for the pool design which curves two walls and thus provides good distance for swimmers. High external walls along the site perimeter provide for excellent shadow and unprecedented – I’ve been to five different resorts in Maldives – privacy. A/C has two zones which have separate management, which I found extremely comfortable. My personal recommendation is to book villas on this side (##201-221) as it is less windy. Service is regular (bed dress and towels), and timely and helpful (minibar). So, once back is alright, let’s listen to stomach. Ozen has 4 restaurants, i.e., Arabic Sangu, Indian Safran, haut cousine OriginE and regular Vista Del Mar. The latter is for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Thought of Turkish or Swedish buffet? Forget those thrillers. Despite its regularity you will continue to enjoy true and top service: waiters are quick and attentive, pouring drinks and wine when a glass is half-empty, they can accommodate your special requests though it’s not in the menu. Menu is large and cooked for you – you can take few things from displays too. Sushi chef is great and everyday selection is always fresh. I enjoyed working with Santosh and his team there. I cannot recall all the names whose hands kindly filled my glass, brought meals and changed plates – big “thank u” to all. Safran and Sangu are the other two restaurants, which you can try free of charge (sorry, included into the price of your stay). At either location you will continue enjoying top service and excellent food. Shish Tauk and falafel at Sangu were one of the best I ever tried, including my authentic Middle East and London experience. Safran will amaze you with its gentle introduction to Indian cousine from all regions at one plate. Mind its size and spices. OriginE (for extra fee, but one or two quasi-free attendances are allowed) will stand out even in such a company. A4 class Wagyu marble beef will say a lot and will melt down in your mouth as quickly as an ice-cream – an experience compared with my first ever, after the graduation from the University, visit to Angus Steakhouse near Coventry Garden of London – note that my mortgage was unsettled yet. Reservations are highly advisable. Now one may think that it’s time to… Yes, I know that some people hate diets and need bites to survive between breakfast and lunch, between lunch and dinner. To continue non dietic non-stop food voyage one must occupy a strategic position, like Gibraltar, Suez, Bosfor or Panama, i.e., here the narrow area between the pool and the bar. I could not imagine that Indian street food would ideally match with “Veuve Clicquot” , but thanks to two magicians: chef Nanin and waiter Cherry, my stomach enjoyed the journey despite the prescriptions from my doctor who stupidly blessed that my trip. Sea here is deep enough to survive low tides and quiet to allow long swims. Now when and if your stomach survived, it is time to give a word to suppressed by wives and moms-in-law minority, i.e., to the liver. To be true and objective there is a shocking wine list, which may look so deep into your pocket, but relax… There is a sommelier whose name is unfortunately unknown to me and who set a decent free-of-charge lists both for minibars and restaurants. You will forget being thirsty. Quality of “free” (ales inclusive) drinks is top – my liver remembers all hotels I stayed in. Well, at the stage where your liver reached foie gras nirvana, you should not forget about eyes and brains and therefore must bring your body to the bar, which has comfortable sofas upfronting the ocean, and order old ruby Tawny. You must look at the sky conscientiously and determine scientifically whether Milky Way leads to or from the paradise. Be careful when smoking shisha – clouds might be misleading and covering true stars. I omitted welcome and farewell for a reason as many hotels now got this know-how mixing tam-tams with champagne, but… Not all hotels change, clean and dry mattresses on the beaches leaving this function to sun. Ozen does this daily. And a prefinal touch: napkins for sunglasses at the pool… A-ah! A reason to come back? As well as stylish a-la Rolls-Royce buggies… Now final-final touch. I called my lawyer, told him this story and asked if there was, in his opinion, anything I could complain about. Of course, Safran misses excellent Merlo and Cabernet from Bangalore and Sura regions to make it truly Indian restaurant. Another reason to return to see if Mrs. Luise read this review. With big thanks for the stay, Igor Angler P.S. Of course, butler is key to your stay, I was happy with Houssaine.

We visited this place and we absolutely loved it!!! Thank you for an amazing experience! From the hustle and bustle lifestyle in Dubai and London...this was a well deserved vacation, relaxing, great for the mental and physical health! It was our first time at the Maldives and the resort didn't fail to deliver a wonderful experience! The daily activities for families and kids was awesome from feeding fish, painting, cycling to spa treatment 😀 Santosh, restaurant manager, was extremely friendly, making sure everyone was happy and provided a homely feeling. Vicky, our butler, she was amazing, so kind and very helpful, dealt with everything in a very kind and polite manner. Nothing was too much for her. Staff in each restaurant and bar were absolutely amazing, they all carry a beautiful smile and kind attitude, very warm hearted. Housekeeping was upto great standard, always so happy and friendly. The drinks...oh my...veuve clicquot on the list, can't go wrong!!! Food was fantastic, the service was great, they have a wonderful team supporting each other. Loved the resort!! Keep up the great work!!! Oh and I finally managed to learn how to ride a bike...in the maldives at the Ozen Bolifushi Resort!!! Sounds awesome right?! We will definitely visit again!

We spent wonderful 10 days at Bolifushi and enjoyed every moment of it. The Villas are spacious (we are a family of 4 and stayed in a one-bedroom Villa), spotless clean and equipped with all you need. All staff we came across were super friendly and always happy to go the extra mile and make our stay even more perfect. Vicky our butler was at hand for whatever question we had, Santosh made sure my husband gets his beloved Maledivian breakfast every morning, Cherry welcomed us by name from day 1 on, Khaled surprised our daughter with an early birthday cake and Viviane from the dive center was the best instructor to introduce our daughters to the joy of diving. We were amazed by the quality and variety of the food. All 4 restaurants have their own charme and speciality and even after 10 days we found plenty of dishes we hadn’t tried yet. The Indian restaurant was our favourite, their vegetarian curry selection was extraordinary. The selection of wines and champagne all included in the all-inclusive package was outstanding. A true luxury holiday and we can’t wait to be back one day.
