Lovely island resort that has kept it’s quaintness through the years”
This was our 2nd time to visit Biyadhoo and will not be our last. We love the islands quaintness and tranquility. We enjoy the simplicity and peacefulness of your Island culture and the fantastic snorkeling around the house reef. Thank you Biyadhoo for your superb service and keeping the island naturally beautiful.
Amazing Island with house reef”
The hotel and island is amazing. hotel dated but charming. beaches and marine life incredible. Reef very damaged in most parts but sharks, turtles, octopus every time you get in the water. full board doesnt include water but not too bad, $3 a bottle and could be worse. staff in the restaurant adorable, polite and very relaxed. Lovely place.
Room for Improvement”
We were delayed at the airport because they wanted to wait for the next flight and squeeze more passengers into the boat which we already paid $400 for. As a result we missed lunch despite paying Full Board. we received no apology, alternative, or compensation. The Sandbar is like an opium den; even self-respecting flies and mosquitoes would not venture into the thick smoke. Why not declare a non-smoking area so we non-smoking guests can drink and enjoy the music. The twice-daily mosquito fogging is abominable as it always coincides with mealtimes and the unavoidable paths are inundated with lingering insecticide. Nevertheless, it is an otherwise well-managed lush island with reasonable snorkelling.
Biyadhoo - A Maldivian gem!”
What a wonderful find!! Biyadhoo exceeded our expectations in so many ways. A natural lush island setting with century old Banyan trees, an abundance of birds, cats, crabs, and sealife to feast your senses on. Every day was an adventure! I've never felt more relaxed whilst on holidays - and boy have been on a few over the years. We stayed in rooms 82 & 89 on the West side of the island lower level, walked out onto the sand. Despite Guest Relations Oksana's lack of interest 🙃 we were greeted by so many beautiful people: 😁Reception Staff - Zakir, Zihunee, Zayan, Hassan, Nishana & Reema, Housekeeper Hussein, Chefs & our Superb Waiter Jobe.. (who worked tirelessly and efficiently in pressures of high season capacity)& many many other smiling faces throughout the island. What phenomenal meals they came up with on the extensive buffets/fruit/desserts. Cocktails were served cold and were not alcohol shy in the balmy Maldivian heat. A true gem of a place - We will be back! Biyadhoo we ❤️ you!
Ecological environment ”
Beautiful small island with very good ecological environment. Small sharks and groups of small fish swimming along the beach. The children love snorkeling there. The facilities are a little old, but valued of money. Food is goo. It would be better if there is a swimming pool.
Very happy stay, will come back!”
We celebrate our honeymoon holiday in Biyadhoo. Must say had a lovely experience staying there. We were very well looked after. We had a memorable & comfortable stay. The staff was very warm and friendly. We had lots of fun here exploring the island around, the house reef and underwater at the island is the best part, we enjoyed it so much! Rooms were a bit outdated, but we don't mind at all as it's very comfortable and absolutely clean. Food quality was excellent. Enjoyed all our meals out, and great services from our waiter. All in all it is good value for money... Would definitely want to come back!!
We had wonderful time at Biyadhoo. The scenery is absolutele wonderful with crystal clear water and dense greenery. When the sun gets too hot you can enjoy the sea while sitting under the shades of trees. There are many sea creatures in the region and every time you go snorkeling and swimming you'll spot something new. The rooms are old but I personally think they look better in reality than in pictures. The staff are friendly. Food is good and they have special treatment for honeymooners. The guests here are regular visitors I think, they mostly come from Europe and Japan and want quiet relaxing time, which is totally different from noisy Chinesr guests. We would want come back to Biyadhoo again for its beautiful natural scenery.
Unbeaten value hotel in Maldives”
This was my first time visiting to Maldives.i was very impressive with the island. Biyadhoo island was beautiful .There were full of tress shaded all the island so the weather was not too hot.You can snorkel as many time as you wish. On the time of my booking, Agoda offers 50% discount with complimentary transfer which made the hotel very value for money.
Poor management, unreasonable charge for the transportation. Poor safety vest also need to charges.”
Please be careful for this hotel. Low room rate but have many unreasonable hidden charges. Return transportation Airport - Male - Airport (around 45 min) USD 200 per person Return transportation Maafushi - Male - Maafushi (Less than 10 min per trip) they charges USD 150 per person (As local transport only USD 40 for 2 person return transport) We have rent a saty vest but they give the low quality vest. The rates is USD 7 include tax. Snorkeling equipment USD 6 include tax. No drink provided. 1 bottle charge USD4 in Biyadhoo, MVR 10 (USD 0.67) in Maafushi. Room old fashion & less maintain. The best things in Biyadhoo is the staff friendly & the food nice. As my advice, go for 1 day trip is more than enough, no next time to stay there anymore.
Very green and lush island. Fab Snorkelling. Food Good, Attentive staff. Only few minor complaints, such as there cocktails are poor if you go AI ( which I reccomend for the best deal) Rooms need updating but you know this before you go and they are currently renovating this year!
Great island with amazing reef”
A great resort in a wonderful and colorful island with an amazing reef! Great value for money. We had a room on the sunset side of the island, in a perfect position and clean. The room and restaurant staff was very helpful and nice. The transfer cost is probably too high and the reception staff could be a little more flexible, but apart from that it was a perfect vacation. Everything you need is right there and the food was good and a bit different every day. We will surely go back there!
The staff were very friendly and accommodating nothing was too much trouble!”
The rooms do require updating but were clean. We went for our honeymoon and the staff couldn’t do enough; we were greeted with a bottle of wine, fruit basket and a letter of congratulations. The food selection was great and accommodated for all tastes!
A place that give me love and joy always - Biyadhoo (Love always)”
Been to Biyadhoo is my 3rd trip, never try other resorts coz Biyadhoo is a beautiful resort, the staffs are friendly, food is great, best of all cleanliness is superb except for the drainage smell, Chef still the same person, after 8 years I yet to drop by Biyadhoo which I should make a habit of doing 2 years once. But this time around was fantastic ... my friends love it and we plan to come back again yearly to visit the people and fishes.... Thank you for not raining these few days ...
biyadhoo is an excellent choice for an economical facility in the expensive maldive islands
Amazing Resort - friendly staff, beautiful beach and incredible marine lifein the house reef.”
Great value for money. Rooms were simple but clean. Buffet food much better than expected. Snorkelling was out-of-this-world amazing - Blacktip sharks galore, a couple of white tip sharks; hawksbill sea turtles; eagle and devil rays; anemonefish (several kinds); octopus; moray eels and all the usual reef fish.
The best aspect of Biyadhoo is the island, the staff and the food. Very intimate, you can fully enjoy your stay. The rooms are a bit old, but very clean. Important details for future visitors: - local island time is +6GMT ( 1 hour difference from Male; useful for meals schedule) - boat transfer hours ( for departing from Biyadhoo) are variable, you need to check at the reception: usually there is a boat leaving in the morning ( 6 or 9 or even 11 am) and one in the evening (4:30, 6 pm). Important note: these hours were observed during our stay, they may vary. - clean beach towels are provided daily, no need to bring your own. - for full board drinks are not included, but don’t worry, the prices are reasonable for a resort: 1.5l water 3$, beer 4$, cocktails around 8$. The conclusion is that you get plenty for the money you spend and I would recommend this experience to everyone.
Beautiful Island for a Perfect Honeymoon!”
We chose this island for our Honeymoon and it was a perfect decision of no regrets. This Island is very well maintained with no pollution or garbage. It is a wonderful island for people to have a relaxing, calm and private time on the island. With the full board meal on the booking of this island, it is a complete value for money. You can also find water sport activities like scuba diving, snorkeling and others. Water is clean and clear, good for snorkeling. Perfect place for all type of people. Couples can have a good time here without any disturbance. We can have direct access to the beach from our room with chairs everywhere to sit and relax. No complaints. Everything were good. Will return in future.
The best value for money”
I stood 7 nights in Biyadoo and found it a wonderful stay, with great relation value/money. Don't expect luxury but you will have the necessary confort, a beautiful beach, a very nice coral reef for snorkeling and all that you need for a relaxing and unforgettable week. Food may not be very varied but it is quite good. Wi-fi is only available in the Reception but we bought a chip in Maldives Airport which assured us good internet for the week at a reasonable cost. I particularly appreciated the kind services. The Supervisor helped me a lot when I needed glass frames to be repaired in Male. The Guest Relations Officer is a nice, efficient lady. In short, I found it a bargain for all that we experienced.
Heaven on earth ...is the reef around ”
We had booked It for the reef around and let me tell you we were not disappointed at all.. Once we reached there check in was smooth and manager was good to tell us about the facilities available.. Had done snorkeling for 2 days...every minute was worth it... Night time DJ was also worth it in an area with limited night life entertainment.. DO REMEMBER TO BOOK ALL INCLUSIVE DEAL AS WATER IS CHARGABLE IN FULL BOARD DEAL..
Beautiful little island”
Wonderful vacation on a beautiful island with everyone trying their best to please you. The only annoyance is the poor quality of internet and telephone calls from the island are rediculously expensive if you have to use them.
