            They gave our two days room to someone, therefore they had no rooms for us. The alternative way they gave us is to give us a room for each day(it mean we had to move from one room to another the next day) The manarger however was nice and kind and trying to solve the issue. We are appreciated.

            I was travelling to maldives for my honeymoon and this was our first stop. We are very glad we chose Thuloosdu island which is a local island to be our first stop. The staff and guests at canopus made our stay all the more special. Loved how this warm and welcoming retreat made us feel so loved! The cosy atmosphere of the hotel which is literally on the beach, gave us perfect access to the water, restaurants and a surf centre which is right next to the hotel. The management made our stay all the more special. Thank you canopus, would love to visit you again!

            Manager Rusiru and staff all great. After arriving during a storm, Rusiru was in constant contact to arrange alternative accommodation at an airport hotel for one night. Then arranged alternative transport the next day to Canopus. Although the weather was variable it was still a great holiday largely due to the great staff as well as the great location and the high standard and cleanliness of the rooms. Breakfast and dinner served at a table in a sand, one step from the water"s edge - Fantastic!

            Canopus has great big and comfortable rooms... However the showers are salt water (not the case with else where on the Island) No toiletries provided and the restaurant was shocking (no menu, and only open at certain times) No room service and the beach is not very "swim friendly"

            Dear Shaun Thank you for your candid review.We are surprised to hear the Salt water issue as we have not come across such a complaint .May be it was due to a technical fault and we apologize if this minor error has caused you any inconvenience.Toiletries are not provided and we have mentioned this in our website in order for guests to come prepared.Menus are available but will review with the staff why you have not been offered the Menu.All restaurants in the island have specific opening and closing times due to operational procedures but we do our best to keep our Restaurant open at all times for our valued guest. However we look forward to seeing you once again and will make every effort to make your next trip a pleasant memorable one.

            We were at Canopus for two nights. The hotel is very clean and staff nice and helpful. The rooms are big and we had super nice views of the sunrise. however, the beach in front is not a bikini beach, and it's not possible to swim or sunbath there. They offer day trips (snorkeling, dolphin) at a reasonable price... Food quality is very low and there are not many alternatives in the island. In general, the island is dirty and have no services. I would only recommend if you are looking for adventure and don't care about services.

            My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Canopus and both agree that staying here and on Thulusdhoo island was our favourite part of our holiday across the Maldives.Friendly enviroment,great location with the beach at your doorstep and bikini beach right around the corner for snorkelling and excursions at your feet.The staff were very friendly,humble people who were always looking to help you with anything and everything when possible.I believe that photos dont do this place justice and that this leg of our journey was well worth its money.If you want to be immersed with friendly locals and a variety of affordable food and excursion options left right and centre then we HIGHLY recommend this place and island.Big thanks to the Resort Manager Sanjay and Staff for a wonderful trip.Hopefully well get the opportunity to return sometime in the near future.

            Nice little gem in Thulusdhoo ”

            In an idyllic island in Thulusdhoo, we found a hidden gem in Canopus Retreat Thulusdhoo. The rooms are modern and new. We were blown away by the hospitality rendered to us by the hotel manager, Naem and the Sales Executive, Ahmed who never fails to impress us. Good restaurants could be hard to come by at Thulusdhoo, but the hotel chef managed to dish out wonderful buffet dinner for a group of 11of us. Make sure that you try their Maldivian buffet dinner that is absolutely splendid! Just minor improvement needed though on the bathroom sewerage system to get rid of the heavy stench. Other than that, this is a perfect accommodation at Thulusdhoo. We will definitely stay here again when we come back

            Ubicación ideal, buen restaurante”

            El hotel está delante de la playa, en la que te puedes banyar en bikini. No és la mejor zona, pues la arena és escasa. Los desayunos y comidas son super buenos, y los puedes tomar a pie de playa. Cuenta con zona de hamacas y relajo ideales en frente del mar. Las habitaciones correctas, muy limipas. Dificultat para conectarnos al wifi, pero creo que es un problema en general de la Isla entera Los que llevan el hotel no són locales. Ofrecen cada dia excursiones a todos los clientes, aunque el precio es un poco mas elevado que los tours parecidos en otras islas. Muy atentos a la hora de ayudarnos a reservar trasnfers a otras islas.

            Unsere schlechteste Erfahrung während unserer vierwöchigen Rundreise”

            Der Besuch im Canopus Retreat war eine reine Enttäuschung und hat uns unseren Urlaub ruiniert. Was auch immer die Antwort vom Hotel sein wird, sie werden sich rausreden, wie bei jeder schlechteren Bewertung. Fakt ist, dass wir gegen 22Uhr gelandet sind und aus diesem Grund bereits Monate vorher über das Hotel einen privaten Transfer auf die Insel gebucht hatten, dieser wurde uns mehrmals bestätigt. In Male angekommen, war niemand zu finden und nach einem Anruf im Hotel wurde die Schuld auf uns geschoben und man hat uns noch unfreundlich angefahren. Wie sich herausstellte, wurde der Transfer für uns nicht gebucht! Wir mussten dann in der Nähe des Flughafens übernachten. Im Hotel angekommen, kam nicht einmal eine Entschuldigung. Im Zimmer war schwarzbrauner Schimmel an der Klimaanlage und das Frühstück war unter Durchschnitt. Keine Auflagen auf den Plastikliegen und meist abweisende Mitarbeiter. Die Lage war okay, wenige Meter zum überlaufenen Bikini Beach. Lieber ein anderes Wählen.

            Gastvrijheid met een hoofdletter H. We werden onwijs in de watten gelegd. Het personeel kwam zelf met initiatieven, we hoefden nergens om te vragen. Eten was ook heerlijk!

            Canopus heeft onze Malediven reis tot een onvergetelijke ervaring gemaakt. En de service in het hotel was heel fijn en persoonlijk. Onze kamer was bij aankomst bezet (lekkage in een andere kamer, en dit stel zat er al een week en werd dus naar onze kamer verplaatst). Ter compensatie kregen we het diner gratis (niet om gevraagd, gewoon gekregen). De eigenaar heeft ons meegenomen voor het snorkelen en gaf ons zwemvliezen te leen (gratis). 'S Avonds wilden we graag buiten op het strand eten, maar het personeel was ons al voor en had al een romantisch diner voor ons gepland. Dat noem ik nog eens gastvrijheid en meedenken! De kamers waren trouwens ook erg prettig met alle gemakken voorzien. Een kamer had alleen geen warm water, kan een minpuntje zijn. Het ontbijt was elke dag anders, maar altijd erg lekker (ook lokale specialiteiten).
