    PERFECT PARADISE”

    Perfectly positioned beach frontage accommodation. We had street view room but you are practically on the beach, just walk through atrium area and you are on beach, you could pay more for beach view from balcony but we preferred to spend our money on Manta snorkelling trips which were AMAZING. Bed was comfy, bathroom clean, Note water can be bit smelly and definitely DO NOT DRINK TAP WATER, but you are on an amazing small island with house front reef frequented by Mantas, Turtles, Dolphins etc. We will be back :)

    Room is nice but a bit small”

    Especially the bathroom is too small that I have to first close the door in order to use the washing basin behind. Food from the in-house restaurant is not our favor. We couldn't appreciate the way the chef cook.... Comparing with local restaurants in this island, we'd prefer the locals, not only cheaper, but more tasty. Staff at reception don't have good communication, regarding my transportation to airport, different staff would give me different answers, one said yes, while on the departure day I was told no.

    Incredible location right on the beach. Aveyla Manta village is also associated with Liquid Salt Divers. They can book all your dives and snorkel trips at Aveyla. Another perk with having the dive team on site is that they will get you if there are Manta sitings and you can be on the boat heading for Hanifura Bay within 10 minutes!

    Amazing , affordable luxury ”

    I can’t recommend Aveyla highly enough! Aveyla Manta Village and their dive centre Liquid Salt Divers are both exceptional value and quality. Aveyla is modern and has a luxurious feel at an affordable price. The dive boat and all the dive equipment was A grade and very well maintained. Wether you’re a diver a not, you can’t go past Aveyla Manta Village, Just snorkelling in the house reef I saw turtles, eagle rays, octopus, so many fish and dolphins. There’s a few political issues in the capital Male, which have deterred som e tourists. There’s no impact of these issues whatsoever in the islands. Aveyla organised transfers etc so I didn’t have to spend a night in Male.

    Hotel is pretty nice, so the staff is. First 2 days of our stay, there were workers working outside our window (first floor) so we had to ask for a room change. Basically the whole first floor is a mess, the view on the street (specially when there’s workers outside) is horrible

    Cozy place, great staff, wonderful nature”

    That was definitely what I was searching for. Totally apart from a resort experience, this place in this island can let you guess true Maldives. Staff is great, rooms are cozy (choose the beach front ones) and super clean, you can go snorkeling right in front or join excursions. Corals unfortunately are beached at the moment, but there are plenty of fish, turtles, dophins and even sharks. Seen a manta even if it was not the right season. Some little improvements would let Aveyla become outstanding, like more comfortable sun beds and quite more meal choice. However I recommend it for sure, it's a place you would like to return to.

    Quick dive trip to Maldives ”

    the staff at Aveyla were so helpful. I planned my trip last minute & it all worked out perfectly. It's a great place if you are looking for a mix of beach vacation, experiencing the culture & connecting with locals. I loved walking around the village to see what life was like on this tiny island as well as relaxing at the beach. This place is perfect for a little 'life detox' to help you get re-centered. The dive shop is great - dive masters are very knowledgeable, good equipment and a great boat with plenty of room!

    False advertising on activities; bad experience ”

    New, clean, comfortable but lack proper service

    Overall disappointing. Why: 1. Failed to deliver activities advertised 2. Buffet dinner was cold & hard to swallow, plus constantly insufficient food at buffet 3. Refolded wet towel instead of changing 4. Didn't replace toiletries 5. Agoda overcharged 6. TV missing from room at check in 7. WIFI constantly dropping 8. Bad TV reception 9. Black out 10. Food & non-alcoholic drinks cost same as other 4-5 star resort but of lesser quality 11. No alcohol mentioned upfront, hidden in FAQ 12. Extra USD 190 for return domestic flight, making all the incidentals more pricey than other 4-5 star resort stay 13. Hotel isn't operationally ready, staff clearly untrained 14. Hotel went back on promise to cancel room reservation, gave misguided truth about cancellation through Agoda, hotel finally relented after much hassling from us. By then, we were feeling miserable and had to spend extra money to go to a nearby resort to have a more enjoyable time

    Very relaxing and beautiful views”

    Views, room standard, staff

    This is a new hotel on an inhabited island. It is well appointed with high ceilings and lots of wood. It sits on a gorgeous beach and the ocean view rooms have wonderful views. In the front of the hotel (the beach side) there is plenty or space to relax in a hammock and enjoy the white sand beaches. The restaurant is open during mealtimes for about two hours, and the food is very good. The menu is not expansive but it has plenty of variety and very tasty food - curries, tuna steaks and light bites as well. Prices are very reasonable. No alcohol. I came for the weekend as a solo traveler and the staff were very welcoming, as were other guests - a friendly vibe. I scuba a bit, but I am not very experienced and the divemaster took extra care with me to make sure my equipment was properly set up and to make sure I was well looked after during the dive. Both the dive and the snorkel with the mantas were well organized - and very fun outings. If you are after a 5-star resort on a deserted island, this is not the place for you - but if you would like a 3-star hotel that gives you 4-star accommodation in a serene setting for a fraction of the cost of the resorts, I highly recommend.

    Charming place with lovely staff”

    Very clean and comfortable resort, proximity to Hanifaru in Baa Atoll, great staff and service

    This is easily one of the best places I've stayed at. The resort is only 4 months old and hence very new. The building is well designed and very well built, and the room is very comfortable. The staff does a great job maintaining the room and the rest of the resort - I am very impressed with the dedication of the staff. I am also always greeted with a friendly smile - it is a great place to stay. Aveyla is only 10 minutes away by speedboat to the Hanifaru bay where you can snorkel with manta rays which is a magical experience. There are also several dive spots nearby.

    Struttura molto bella, ordinata e pulita. L'aeroporto non si sente neanche. La camera è ampia con letti king size ed i bagni sono in stile moderno. I letti vengono rifatti appena uscite dalla camera, come il cambio asciugamani e la pulizia. Si mangia bene, pollo, riso, pesce e verdure fatte sempre in modo diverso. Il personale è sempre a disposizione. La spiaggia è fantastica sia per fare un bagno che snorkeling. Nella stuttura è sempre presente il personale del Liquid Salte Divers che ogni giorno propone escursioni fantastiche. L'isola è carina e tutti molto gentili salutano. Tutto perfetto a 360°, consigliatissimo!!!

    最高のモルディブ滞在”

    大変素晴らしい滞在でした。 おすすめポイントとして ○ マレ国際空港からホテルまでの送迎手配を全てしてくれること ○ ホテル内でエクスカーションの相談・予約が可能で価格もとてもリーズナブル(大人1人につき子ども1人分がフリーなのか、家族5人で大人2人+子ども1人の料金でした) ○ 食事が美味しい ○ プライベートビーチを少し泳ぐとすぐにドロップオフ。ホテルの目の前でたくさんの生き物が見られる。 とにかくスタッフの方々のホスピタリティが高くフレンドリーで、どんなリゾートよりも充実した滞在ができたと思います。 雨季にはマンタの乱舞やジンベイザメが見られるとのことでまたぜひその季節に宿泊したいと思っています。
