Close to male so reachable by speed boat, so you dont have to pay high price of a sea plane We had the all inclusive pkg. and its worth it. Food is great. Pristine beach, great massage, love the butler idea. Celebrated my 67th bday and they gave us an extra nite to eat at the japanese restaurant. Decorated ouur bed and had a sumptuous choc cake. Great chef at japanese restaurant, friendly and accomodating butler, Vjendra. Overall experience is great

Excellent hotel, it is only a 20 minute boat ride to/from MALE airport. The rooms are spacious, clean and there are corals, fish, sharks, stingrays, etc constantly swimming under and around the villas, it was surreal. The food is varied. The staff is courteous and polite. Overall the best vacation to relax, recharge and enjoy the beautiful scenery and peace the property provides.

Awesome & Excellent! ”
Adaaran Prestige Vadoo was perfect! First time in Maldives for our honeymoon and we chose the right resort to stay! The staffs, the facilities, the room we stayed in (room 834), the sunset view, the foods. Everything there was perfect! I would like to say thank you to our personal butler, Vijendra. Everything we needed were done smoothly by him. Very professional in handling our queries especially on our request of changing room. He also will check on us once in a while to ensure everything was going fine with us. Thank you Vijendra! Also, to Nalake, one of the restaurant waiter. He really made our day there more happier with his work etiquette. Very professional, super efficient and hardworking! Thank you Nalake! This resort is the place to go, never regret coming here. One day we'll come here again! Thank you Adaaran Prestige Vadoo!

Check in with low expectations due to not so great reviews however I was stunned with the services provided by the resort from the airport pick up till we were sent off to the airport. Was also upgraded to honeymoon suite on our last night as our showers wasn't really working too well. Had daily fruits n sweets given during our stay. Our butler, manu was exceptionally attentive to our needs and we appreciate the restaurant staff being able to recommend good food or choices to us. They even gave us extra food and dessert! Great stay and wood love to come back!

Great stay in Adaaran Prestige Vadoo - Great staffs, food n room. ”
One of the resort nearest to airport n male. Huge room with pool n Jacuzzi. Tried the all inclusive deal and we got lots of things to eat including mini bar n tea break tapas. We had a wonderful stay and will recommend to anyone who is interested to try water villa. The only negative point is that a construction is on going with sunrise facing room. But we still get to see the lagoon n seeing the island sandy beach. As for sunset villa, you have nothing to see except the open sea. We are happy with the room and enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Where do I start? This resort took care of us from the moment we landed. I did so much research before selecting this resort, but I still wasn’t sure what to expect when we arrived. It impressed me beyond my wildest dreams. The hospitality is excellent (everybody was so lovely!). Food is excellent (gourmet, menu changes daily). Room was excellent (seriously gorgeous!!!!!). I can’t rave about this place enough. Thank you SO much for making our honeymoon a dream come true. I will cherish these memories forever. Also, our butler Sufwan was outstanding. Thank you SO MUCH for everything! Forever grateful.

Friendly and convenient ”
This is a resort I chose for my honeymoon due to its location that is closer to the airport so that we can reach here by just using speed boat instead of sea plane. The staffs were very friendly and the house keeping cleans our villa twice a day (breakfast & dinner time). This leaves the room neat as always whenever we come back from our meal. Our butler (Mr. Vijendra) was a fine man, he was very helpful in guiding us through the island and also helping my husband in planning for my birthday decoration and surprises. The food in the restaurants are very delicious and full of variety every night during dinner time. We will be served with starter, soup, main dish and dessert with the given selection of different fusion of food every night.

Worst resort ever. Uncontact resort and ignore customers email”
I booked here for 2 nights and met some problems. Sent resort over 30 emails but no one care and no reply. Can not contact at all even call or email. No one care about their customers. I will review more and more. Tell all my friends and never ever book this even Adaaran group anymore. Worst worst worst experiences!!!! Dont booking here!
Dear Nguyen, unfortunately your review does not reflect the truth as you did not stay at our hotel. There was no booking or reservation made. We also tracked all email traffic and have not found any of your supposed 30 email. Your review is being reported to agoda. Best Regards Michael Nassiri General Manager
Great resort in Maldives”
We booked with breakfast and dinner included and we recommended to do so. All staff are great and helpfull. If we want, a mini golf car works as a shuttle from the bangalos to the main island and vice-versa. Certanly, we will be back.

Worth every single cent!”
We were staying in this resort for 4 days 3 nights and from the airport to the resort, we were greeted with helpful staffs! Our butler Shiham was nice and always remember to send our high teas to our rooms and all kinds of requests that we have. Would like to mention a young waiter Samman, he served us very well and always check with us if we eat well. Overall experience was very good! We enjoyed the facilities of the room especially the outdoor jacuzzi! Go for all-inclusive package, it is super worth it!

Good hotel close to Male with limited choices”
We stayed at Adaaran Prestige Vadoo for five nights in mid May to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We liked the closeness to Male as we didn’t want to waste time with seaplane. It is only about 15 minutes away from Male airport by speed boat. You can actually see Male clearly from the island. It is a nice hotel with 50 water villa. House reef is beautiful. I did snorkeling morning and evening. Service is excellent and you even get a private Butler. Our butler, Vichendra, was nice. So is the bagi driver, Pada. Food choice is quite limited. There is also not much excursion option. Our Male tour was not that good as we were put on staff ferry which was extremely slow and not stable. Overall, quite a good hotel, particularly for those who want to be close to Male.

excellent vacation and beyond!”
after 3 weeks got home from maldives,we still unable to move on with the beauty of maldives and excellent services from adaaran prestige vadoo. at adaaran prestige vadoo you can expect to be pampered.you'll instantly feel as if you were a king and queen.every single thing will be well taken care of. we stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights.our personal butler were mr Reji and mr shiham (we booked 2 seperate rooms as we came in in a group of 4 + 1 infant).mr reji particularly was very helpful and accommodating and will attend to your needs. mr reji managed to arrange an extended stay for free for one of the rooms for us to stay in the room (since our flight was at night).so we have less thing to worry on where to wander or hang around especially when we have an infant with us.apart from that,he and mr shiham together with the cleaner team made a surprise for my dad,who was celebrating his 60th birthday. the list of can on...ahhh we felt so welcoming..deserved 5 stars!!!

Excellent and beyond our Expectation”
Maldives & the people here in Andaaran are Superb polite, nice & service was tip top. We cane here with my toddler was is 3yrs old & 1 yrs old. They will also thrilled with all the fishes , beautiful beaches, and also shark. The food here are served by portion. For big eater probably u can bring some cup noodles. They have a japanese dinning which u have to make a reservation thru ur personal butler. Our Butler, Vijiendran was awesome. He knew that us with kids, he served and set up breakfast for our entired stay in our villa.... and also booked for us the sunset fishing, photoshoot (150 usd for 45mins). I love the photoshoot. The photographer was very professional from Malé City. He handled us 4 very well... And the Spa , the cavanna treatment done by 2 therapists at one go was awesome!!! ($128usb for 80mins) Water sport was limited. If u are kind of adventurous i suggest choosing and googling other of their sister Villa. Snorkelling goggles and fins can be taken from the counter at certain timing and can return upon departure. BBQ buffet dinner was awesome!!! Everything was fresh and worth it. ($110 usd/ couple). The night sky has the most twinkling stars ever. And the sunset fishing. Its a big boat, i can ever bring my stroller on it. And they only use a simple way to fish and we got 3 and its was awesome. They will cook for u the next day and i tell u its yummy!!! Again, we really have a great time. For families with babies. It awesome to bring them here and spend the moment. Its windy and the over water villa is awesome.... Nvr regret and i tell u i will return to Maldives again.... affordable villa with excellent service by personal butler, waiter, housekeeping and the whole team.... All inclusive is recommended to all... water was sufficient. Just ask. They will give u for free... they are not the type who do things for the money. They love their job. Excellent...
Dear Shiela, thank you very much for taking the time and making the effort to review our hotel. We are pleased that you overall enjoyed your stay with us and do hope that we can welcome you back again in the future. With Best Regards Michael Nassiri General Manager
The villa is great and very clean. Location is spectacular and beautiful view. Staf is very kind. Especially Manu our butler during our stay, very helpful in many ways. The food taste in the restourant didn't match with us, but the BBQ party is awesome, love it so much. Only one thing, I think the price of the boat transfer from airport to resort is too high for such a sort way and the price for every activity is litle bit expensive. I give 9 to 10 for this place, and is very recomended. And they need to put the right picture of the room in Agoda.
Best choice near Male for water vila”
Not far away from Male City/Velena Airport. Speed boat only from hotel property. There is only water villa..with sun rise or sun set view. Surrounding very beutiful, big fish feeding attraction at sunset, snorkeling at high tide is best choice, can see octopus, sting ray, squid, colorful fish. Room very clean n tidy. Superb...sure to back again.
High Value for Money”
The island is very small yet so beautiful. The view is stunning with the clear blue water. We saw baby sharks, stingrays and varieties of beautiful fishes from the water villa. Some beautiful snorkeling spots around the island too. The service was also very good, they give you a personal butler (though personally for us it's not that necessary). When we arrived in the island the check in time is still in a few hours so we just walk around the island and relax. Staying here really worth all the money because it's not so expensive like other resorts in Maldives but you get such an excellent facilities and service. The water villa have its own private pool, jacuzzi, glass floor, etc. They also have swimming pool, spa and gym on the center of the island. Oh and they give you a welcome drink (we got a bottle of sparkling white wine when we arrived) and salty and sweet snacks in the afternoon. Very recommended place to stay in maldives. Also only around 15 minutes boat ride from the airport so it won't cost you a lot on airport transfer.
Definitely a great place for a honeymoon. Everything was too perfect, from the view, to the villa, food and their service. We were on the all inclusive package, but the staff always give us extra food/dessert. The staff are so friendly and nice, from our butler to the waiter to the security people. It is very expensive but definitely worth the money spent. Had such a memorable and amazing honeymoon here. Definitely recommended!
will surely visit again”
a very good location, just 20mins speedboat from male airport. Staff are very polite and detail minded. Big thanks to Manu my butler for all the arrangements and Moosa from the restaurant who offered great service. Staff at the bar was very nice too. Late checkout with early dinner arranged to match my flight time. Everything was perfect. Will surely visit again.
Really worth the bucks!! Booked water villa and so perfect. Water are damn crystal clear. So relaxing and calm place. Can see shark and big fishes. Food is great!! Staff was so friendly especially our butler, his service was good. What you paid is what you got!!
