Vakarufalhi did not disappoint!

honeymoon water villa, food and scenery
Vakarufalhi was a good break from the city. we stayed in the honeymoon water villa and it was perfect! the villa was spacious, clean and modern. room service was efficient and our room was cleaned twice a day. however, there were occasions where we called for some assistance in our room and no one turned up. the staff there were pleasant, and the food buffet spread for all meals was good! the place is lovely and well maintained. clear blue waters and soft sand, it was a perfect getaway!

A great resort for family

Food was good, Friendly staffs and good mix of sandy beach for kids and reasonable house reef for adults.
It's a top notch 4 stars resort with great food and friendly staffs & guests. Both my wife & my 6 year old daughter are very happy with our stay there. The staffs are so engaging with my daughter especially that makes all the difference. All in all Vakarufalhi is a resort with excellent 'software' and good 'hardware'.

a high price raises high expectations

food, sharks in the bay, privacy of water villa
The hotel offers excellent food and service. It shows quite a bit of wear, and the bed sheets have seen many customers before. The air condition in the water villa was not able to cool it down during the afternoon. The arrangements of the water villas is great and offers a lot of privacy. The dive center and its staff are excellent.

overall is very good

water villa is very clean and access to sea from room deck is good
the cleanliness of the water villa is very good. just the bed is a bit old and not so comfortable. the snorkeling equipment are clean. Life jackets can only be rented at $8, but I think they should consider renting for free as there were no life guards around the island. The waiters at the dining are for water villa room guest are not alert as the beach villa side. We need to order the same drinks few times from different waiters and waited for so long even until we finished our food. the location is good, baby sharks and stingray can be seen especially in the morning hours.

Location, rooms and staff
Absolutely wonderful place. It was our first visit to the Maldives and we booked a water villa for our honeymoon and it was amazing. You are able to snorkel directly from the room in crystal clear waters and see turtles, rays and baby sharks which was the highlight for me. Staff were attentive and friendly, accommodation excellent, food great, snorkelling and diving brilliant. Thankyou!

Like a paradise

good location, attentive service and great activities
Our stay was fantastic! Not to mention the location and design of the hotel water villas, the restaurant, the bar are perfect for ocean lovers. No matter where you are, the ocean is right in front of your eyes! The water villa is very spacious and clean. Just jump off the balcony, you are already swimming with black tip shark, eagle ray, puffy fish, and other schools of fish. You don't really need to go far for snorkelling and diving. Perfect place for divers.
