Very bad support n insufficient info to cistomers. You will incir loss for nothing as i did of 700$”
I booked 2 nights for the r sort and it was paid in full, no refund policy communicated. When i reach male, i got to know onlu sea plane can go there if seats available. Charges 460$ / person. We were 4 so we cant afford to give 1700$. We have to forgo our booking and no refund was made.
Romantic and peaceful paradise”
Ideal for couple, nice environment, valuable for money for all inclusive water villa, friendly and attentive staffs. Still room to improve such as no wifi connection in rooms, some over-promised information on the leaflets and expensive sea plane transportation.
Felt like home, probably time for a facelift”
My group was on the Beach Villa half board package, which provides for breakfast and dinner. Upon touching down the seaplane, we were given cooling towels, a welcome drink and briefing at the bar. This was great for us, as the seaplane journey was hot and uncomfortable. A glass bottle of water was complimentary for the room, other than that was chargeable (same goes for the Internet - but I believe a proper holiday in Maldives should be Internet-free). No issues boiling water from the tap, we were totally fine for the five days spent in the resort. The meals at the restaurant were done buffet style, with a good focus on local food-fare. We made good use of the complimentary snorkeling trips, and equally enjoyed the sunset fishing and island hopping ones (these were chargeable). If you do plan to snorkel, the best would be the morning slots, as the waters are less choppy. Divers (and those keen for a guided dive) would be glad that Werner Lau is in the resort, however it can be a little pricey. We were satisfied with the guided dive, where a professional instructor took two of us down a reef for 30 minutes. In my opinion, the resort should invest in refurbishing the rooms as they are probably looking a little tired. Being first time visitors to Maldives and what mother nature and the resort could offer, we are very satisfied.
Awesome place. I loved every minute.”
Awesome honeymoon at Medhufushi. We were lucky enough to get the sunset water villa at the end of the line(134). There is a fish that lives beneath it named Charlie. He loves beef jerky. Saw turtles, an octopus, so many fish. The water is unbelievably clear at Medhufushi. The buffet was awesome! Amazing!
Great resort in the most beautiful place”
Maldives are superb, no doubt about it. The concept of separate resorts on private island is amazing. And this place is simply stunning. We had an ocean villa, and it was simply stunning. This was a wedding weekend for us, the guys were professional, organized everything very nicely, it was smooth and beautiful experience. I could recommend this place anytime, for any type of relaxing beach holidays, with wildlife swimming around you very second - baby white sharks, stingrays, turtles.... You'll love it.
Booked half board water villa for 2 night with Agoda. It could be upgrade to All inclusive when check in, only 2 meal per day we took. Buffet was great and serve different each day, any drinks consume on buffet was chargeable even a bottle of water. They upgraded us to Lagoon villa which been informed that fully booked of water villa when we arrive hotel. We are not understand as we had already book water villa in advanced before trip. Lagoon villa was located isolated from the beach, only reach by small boat. Not really convenient for us. Room serve with bottle of water for each day, and welcome fruit. Facility is well equipped and clean as well as sports equipment. For Seaplane transfer, it is to advise to confirm schedule of transfer example seaplane time before. When we came out from airport, we did not seen any representative hotel, hence we proceed to purchase sim card. After it, went to medhufushi hotel counter 38 , they asked us proceed to seaplane transfer counter. However, we been told by seaplane staff that our seaplane already departed, they have to move us to next seaplane, which delayed from 1.30pm to 3pm, then delayed to 4.30pm. We realised that Hotel did not informed us about seaplane time after they help us booked the seat of seaplane according to our flight details. As first time travel to Maldives, we did not notice about this issue. Hotel staff were nothing to do on our issue beside asking us to wait for next seaplane. It could be doubted that our hotel room upgraded isn't it happened upon this seaplane issue.
Gd stay but no house reef ”
They gave free upgrade for water villa. They provide alternative internet options which is to buy a sim card fof $35 usd instead of using their wifi which is costly. no free wifi, if you want to use, its only at their central area. $100 usd for 7 days. nice diving school. nice buffet spread. allow you to bring your own drinks to the buffet.no strict rules on where the food should be eaten. Pity that there is no house reef. the snokeling boat trips are all going to the same area everyday, which is abit boring.Island hopping is to only 2 islands nearby and its costly $50usd per pax, not worth the price.Lobster meal was good !
Nice resort surrouded with Indian Ocean. ”
It's the most romantic resort I have ever been. Nice and clean room facing the Indian Ocean. The balcony is the best part of the whole resort, I have never been so close to the ocean, and had the most chillaxing and romantic moment in my life. Btw, warm reminder, be careful of the crows, they may steal your food and drinks from your balcony.
fantacsic hotel though the coral is just fine. seawater is amazing. mango juice is great. but no free drink available at dinner time. booked deep sea fishing but didn't harvest any fish; booked dolphin watch but didnt find dolphin as well. free snorkling is good though worse than in Great barrier reef. good and cheap place for leisure.
paradise in an over water bungalow”
This resort was just stunning. The sunset over water bungalows are just perfect. Huge balcony, abundant sea life swimming below you, bungalows are far enough apart that you dint hear your neighbors. And the food was superb! Buffet changed nightly and was fresh and the staff were friendly!~ Overall a wonderful place to stay!
everything's great. nothing to pick. it was a very nice honeymoon trip staying in a water villa! i particularly like looking at the night view sitting on the swing in the water villa. it was so amazing. you can see different colours of blue and white at night. it was so peaceful. definitely a pleasure to stay at medhufushi. we're already planning to go there again! well perhaps the only concern that i have is the long seaplane ride. it took us about 40 mins to go there by seaplane. so the seaplane fee was quite a lot well but at the same time you got more time to enjoy the view of maldives islands on the plane.
Recommend to spend more and stay at the water bungalow. Nicer view and can snorkel right below the room. Good food by the restaurant . Would recommend to book with half board as food is not cheap. Water is available on the island at us3 for a bottle (1l) So don't really need to worry about that.
Great Hotel Ideal for a good relax.”
After reading previous reviews about this hotel i was a bit concerned, but it turned out to be great the staff are fantastic, we were on half board breakfast and dinner incl all meals were perfect even after 7 nights the selection was still fantastic. Two nights of storms washed up a huge amount of litter onto the beach but staff had it all cleaned up just after breakfast. We stayed in the water villa would really recommend it, a great view awaits you every morning, and plenty of fish to watch with a morning coffee. Will deffinetly go back in the future. A great hotel with a fantastic staff and perfect location.
Paradise with Infinity Aquarium”
The best honeymoon destination, if it's possible, you must book the last water villa on sunset side (farest from the island, nr134). Transfers on Maldivian Air Taxis is 50min. Don't forgot at home your diving license and in the water the strong sea drifting:) You can snorkel near from your villa with turtles, sharks and spotted eagle rays (your balcony have steps). Honeymoon "package" includes 50min spa massage. Every weather forecast was wrong, we had a great sunshine week. We would recommend Medhufushi to our friends. - WIFI is too expensive and slow.
upon arrival in male, seaplane company insisted that our luggage could only travel on the next flight to medhufushi due to space requirements on the aircraft. they assured us that this would be on the next flight to medhufushi an hour later. arriving at medhfushi, we had to wait two hours as our room was still occupied by a couple checking out that same day. had we known, we could have arranged a later arrival into maldives to better match the check in time of the hotel. finally got our room (water villa) which was amazing and everything we had expected. great lagoon off the sun deck, clean, and comfortable. pity though we had nothing with us as our luggage was delayed. our luggage arrived 5hours later with little explanation or assistance from the hotel, who seemed to pawn the blame off to the seaplane transfer company, of which they in fact have contracted to provide transfers to the resort. management not helpful at all! all in all the hotel was amazing and provided us a fantastic stay for four days. great beaches, nice lagoon, amazing food, friendly staff. spa is nice and has a good selection of treatments. lots of water activities and excursions to choose from. free snorkelling trips provided by the resort on certain days! the water villa was amazing and we enjoyed every last minute of it! would definitely recommend medhufushi to any first time travellers to maldives, you wont be disappointed! just make sure your luggage travels on the sam seaplane as you!
Oh my GOD!”
I stayed for 6 nights for my honeymoon in a water villa in Medhufushi, and I was really blessed to do that booking. Everything was just perfect, from the day we arrived until we left everything was just perfect for us, highly recommended for honeymooners.
Want to escape from it all? This is the place to go ”
From the start at the airport their staff in the office were very helpful and explained all about the transfer via the sea plane which of course they made the booking for a return trip that was in timing with my main flight, answered most of my questions, on arrival had a great reception with a cold towel and a complimentary drink, settled well in the water villa, room service was prompt and the breakfast was great - best regards to the chef yasin who remembered my choice of breakfast during my stay didn't have to wait at all , the rest of the staff were really helpful and pleasant to deal with , on check out had all the details sent to my room didn't have any trouble , thanks to everyone who made it hassle free I enjoyed my stay
Wonderful Paradise experience a truly magical place”
Before I start the review it's important to explain that once you've booked your stay the hotel will contact you explaining that you require a seaplane transfer to reach the Medhufushi Resort. Therefore please bare in mind that the seaplane per person is $399 rtn. And also you'll need to ensure that your inbound flight arrival time is no later than 4pm as seaplane aren't permitted to night flights. Now the resort pros...magical place. We arrived and received a lovely welcome drink. We stayed in the over water bungalow room 113 and it was awsome. Half board basis was perfect and the staff were superb especially Mohammad Jewel and Yaseen in the restaurant. The buffet was delicious and everyday was a different themed buffet. The resort is small but is a gem. All you need is snorkelling gear and that's all you need. The cons..don't book the jet ski as the guide Mashik is extremely impatient and rude. The shower needed to be on 10mins to get warm. Overall 8/10
GOOD FOR CALM STAY”
Stayed for 3 nights, Tried scuba which was good , Snorkelling safari was good, Food in Dinner Buffet was ok, some of the items like lamb ,reef fish were half cooked, They don't give even water for free which is bad ,having own distilled water brand and not giving guest free water is not good. Water villas are beautifull and well located , however maintenance issue in resort , we had to get Fan and AC repaired of our water villa. No Events and entertainment , DJ was organized after 9.30 pm which is very late and no croud was interested in that. Although the view is serene and very calm place.
Fabulous stay ”
I went to Maldives ( Medhufushi island resort) for honeymoon . It is heaven on earth. Simply loved the place. The ambience is picturesque , rooms are spacious and beautiful , good variety of food for both veg and non veg, all facilities are available though it is far from the Male city. Very friendly staffs and hospitality is excellent. Its our second home. It is a must stay resort. We will visit again soon.
