Although only one time in Maldives and only at this resort, i have to admit that the place is amazing! Filitheyo has a reef on it's own, so you don't need to dive or to snorkel elsewhere... just by the sea directly in front, you will clearly see also the entrance points from/to the reef. Many fishes, clown fishes and...

The service was excellent and we were treated like VIP guests. The villas are clean and well maintained and faced the sea.There were water bungalows as well. It is 115 km from Male and you have no choice but to take seaplane that cost 350 USD per person. But the beach is 1 km long and is white and soft....

The holiday starts when moving to the hydroplane harbour on Hulule airport. Flight schedule was organized super smooth; less then 1 hour waiting after landing at Hulule from Dubai. Nice reception upon landing on the island; all the staff, from reception, gardeners, room service, restaurant and bar waiters, are super-friendly. Some reviews mention that the infrastructure(the rooms) need a make-over....

We've been to many Maldivian hotels, including Meeru, One and Only, Maalifushi, Niyama, Olhuvelli and many more. Well, we can compare based on our experience. What we (a family of a daddy, a mummy and a little 7 years old princess) value in such trips: 1) nature/beach/views/tropical forest 2) food (choice and quality) 3) kids stuff - pool/restaurants/activities/clubs 3) snorkeling...

Stayed here for 8 nights in mid February. The whole experience was wonderful, from the professionalism of the resort staff, starting at Male and the seaplane transfer, to the Reception staff, restaraunt and room service and of course not least the stunning waters of the Maldives. We were lucky enough to have a Water Bungalow situated right on the house...
