        Nice property”

        Their seaplane arrangement was not perfect for us. Had to wait long hours at Male airport on both way, felt they waste our time. Explation about property was not enough. looks they want avoid providing option as free (snorkeling equipment and snorkeling tour). But resort itself was very nice. we can recommend to others.

This resort is very beautiful, big nurse sharks, big mantas, baby sharks, coral fish, nice corals in front of our water villa, delicious food and good services.

        PARADISE IN MALDIVES”

        We were a group of 14 pax. 10 of us are all Scuba Divers. We stayed from from a different dive resort for 3 days just to dive and our 3 days here at Safari Island to relax. When the first time we saw this paradise island from our boat, We were like, "WOW! We wished we just stay here all the way for 6 days straight" that was just the first glimpse of the resort. When we experienced the resort, We really wanted to extend our vacation but it can't be done because of our businesses back home. I would highly recommend this resort. Very clean, Fine sand, Great food, Fabulous Island Experience with Great marine life. (We saw a lot of Black Tip Sharks and Sting Rays by just walking by the shore and at night, 4 huge Nurse Sharks and 5 Huge Marble Rays.. Crazy isn't?)

        resort in such a beautiful island we love so much”

        the resort is located in such a beautiful island where make your Maldives experience of snorkelling and diving set on the higher level of standard. The underwater is so awesome with beautiful house reef around the island which literally spoilt you and you will never get enough of it.. Near by Diving location like Fish Head is fantastic where you could literally experience marine aquarium feels like there. no fanciful design, water & semi water villa works for us. With the glass bottom coffee table too !! and by the way, we love the crab race and we miss Amed from the restaurant , who always serve us with his humble smile. Will be back someday !!

        My best vacation”

        Safari Island is a beautiful island with white sandy beach and clear water. Views are breathtaking from all angle. Very quite and peaceful. Feels like we were alone. Staff were very friendly.

        The best vacation ever. The island was beautiful and staff were friendly. We felt welcomed all the time and really felt like home. We didn't want to go back. Food was scrumptious be it breakfast or dinner, with variety of international cuisine. Went for snorkeling at the nearby reef. it was a great experience. Went for dolphin watch the next day but unfortunately we didn't see any. it was 50% chances according to the staff. But we enjoyed the sunset immensely. The ride with seaplane from Male was our 1st but it was very enjoyable to watch other island and coral reef along the way. maldives is the best.

        I thought that Maldives is an overrated hyped place for instagram-girls. I thought this blue-ish water is photoshoped. Nope it's not! Take the full package, the food is great, unlimited high-quality alcohol cocktails will saturate sundown's colors :D Also, take the boat trip, it is romantic, exciting, and yeah, snorkeling place is the best in my life. My English is not advanced enough to explain how excited we were. This is one of my "must repeat" places

        Perfect holidays! ”

        I had the best time in Safari Island! Everything was just perfect from the beginning. I was traveling alone so they made me feel very welcome the whole time. The room was great and had someone coming and cleaning twice a day. 2 bottles of water was offered daily. The food was delicious, the chef was great and kind coming to ask the guests if they were satisfied almost daily. Even on a day that the food was mostly Asian, he would offer to cook you something else if the food wasn’t for you. The Island is pure beauty, the house reef is perfect and only snorkeling you have the perfect experience of Maldives nature. The Safari boat trip offered to guests that stayed more than 7 nights was something else. I had a boat only for myself and the crew made everything to make my experience unique. The lunch at the sand bank was something that I’ll never forget. If you are considering this place, don’t think twice, I’m so glad I made this choice!

        Silver Wedding Anniversary.”

        We visited Safari Island from 11-19 August 2018 to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary!! The island was tranquil and peaceful. We had a water bungalow (158) . The room was clean, bright and airy. We had a can of insect spray so expected the worst but only one bug in our 8 days. This could be helped by the fogging that happens regular to keep them at bay. The team on the island are all fantastic, greeted us personally, always had a smile and a wave, nothing was too much trouble. The food was great and a good variety each day. Cocktail list as long as your arm too! We loved all the marine life from morning to night, sharks, rays, colourful fish, crabs and more! We had a cruise on our anniversary and a romantic table for two for dinner... sadly the sea was rough as we hit storms and couldn’t eat on the beach. Sadly can’t help the weather but wish we’d been rescheduled to enjoy it. Overall 5 stars from us both!!! We will recommend you to others. Well done Safari Island Team!

        Employees are so unfriendly. The resort doesn't have a bugica, so it's a long way to go to get there. If you ask for something, you will hear one of two things. Say no, take it yourself. Other than the underwater environment, not recommended..

        This place is just pure beauty. We came for an 8 night trip to end our travels in Thailand and we had the most amazing time ever. We went all inc. the private safari boat trip and lunch on the sandbank was something we will never ever forget. We also paid for a private dinner on the beach with a four course meal, that was also amazing. The food every night was outstanding and there was something different every single day of the week. The only small issue was the rooms weren’t properly cleaned every day but that’s ok, as we always had fresh towels at all times. We stayed in a water bungalow. We had the time of our lives

        Waterbungalow was decorated so nicely. Amazing view of the ocean and sunset was stunning. Food was amazing I had all inclusive option and the buffet had a great selection plus I am vegan and I ate like a champ. Island is small but I was only there for 3 days and was in paradise :) I rented a paddle board and had an amazing time on the water and watched an incredible sunset :) Staff was incredibly friendly :) My third time in Maldives and this was the best vacation yet!

        Crystal clear water. Amazing view. MAGNIFICENT!”

        The semi-water villa was the best choice as the location near the restaurant & pool area where the wifi & beach are. Perfect too for the first timer Snorkeler like us as the water at the back of villa is less than 1m deep but still there are lots of Coral Reef & pretty fishes. Even though breakfast menu was the same but food was excellent & many choices. Christmas Eve Gala Dinner was a top notch! Arranged beautifully, tasted amazing with huge varieties like a 5* hotel Needs to pay for wifi in the room & receptionist area but not a problem. The beautiful view & fish have entertained us. Our friendly butler gave us a basket of old breads everyday to feed the fish,totally loving it! Down sides: *No water provided during breakfast/dinner buffet.Costs US$4.5 for 1.5L of water. Boiled the tap water,drank the next day & its alright. *The middle of bathroom of room 136 is lower than the drain for the Rain Shower Head area. Had to stop the shower every minute & pulled the water into the drain to stop it from flooding the bathroom. *Shampoo & shower gel were given when check in only, no top-up. No tooth brush/shaver. Better bring ur own *Seaplane transfer were delayed for 2 hours for both ways. Try not to have a connecting flight at the end of ur stay

        Privacy, Outstanding Views, Water Villa

        Firstly, Maldives is generally a bloody expensive place! So having said that, the price my husband and I paid for a water villa with full board was a steal in comparison to other resorts. The staff generally rendered good service. I did not think too highly of the restaurant staff service. Majority looked like they were forced to give smiles and such. Which brings me to a sore point: Drinks are not free considering it was full board. I understand if payment was needed for beer, liqour and even coffee or tea. BUT WATER? Wifi is only accessible at the lobby and restaurant area. Having said that we primarily had an outstanding time at Safari Island because of the privacy and the choice of activities to choose from. When going to Maldives, I would highly recommend the experience of travelling by seaplane instead of choosing islands nearer to the city.
