        Wonderfull stay in paradise”

        The resort is well kept and the fitting the island atmosphere. Each bungalow has its separate, sandy entrance to the shower (out door! Really nice touch). Twice a day, house keeping ckeans and prepare the moscito nets for the night. Food is just amazing, with all you can whish for. In 8 days, every night a new selection was offered. Dive centre is really nice and staff just as you expect them, professionel and happy. Transfer by seaplane us well organized, the location remote and the only resort in the Atoll, so no crowd while diving. The house reef for snorkling is just amazing, actually almost better than the diving sites.

        Nice 2nd stay”

        Lovely island, with wonderful house reef. No concrete stabilizers around the island like in other rssorts, so you can enjoy its natural beauty. Villas and facilities need some re-do, but they are kept very clean. Food is good, breakfast a but repetitive though. Godd price-value ration for the Maldives, I am ready to return.

        Many positivs but need renovations”

        For the price we gave a year in advance with 80% discount was nice. We stayed in watervilla on all incl basis. The good is the staff and the reef. The bad was noicy at night in the watervillas. And the very low water and corals that did make the bathing from terrass not so pleasant. And many days scorching hot on the terrass midday. Food was good and everything very clean. Take note that crows are sometimes to friendly and seems to enter bathroom and ”steal” shiny stuff or things they think is food. We have been to 3 other islands and at the right price it can be recommended but sadly the former glorydays are gone. Would say 3,5 stars no more. But we enjoyed the stay very much.

        Fabulous house reef”

        excellent house reef, friendly staff, delicious food

        Arrival and departure details were very finely tuned. We arrived in Male at 10:00 pm and stayed at a simple hotel on the airport island. Filitheyo Island Resort informed us that someone would pick us up early the following morning. A car picked us up at 6:00 am and brought us to the main airport to drop off our luggage. We were then taken to the Maldivian Air Taxi terminal where we were told of our departing seaplane flight to the resort (7:30 am). They have a large open terminal facing the water. We were escorted onto the seaplane and enjoyed a breathtaking 30 minute flight at 2,500 feet to the resort. A boat met us at a nearly raft to take us to the resort. Although we arrived by shortly after 8:00 am, our water villa was clean and ready for check in. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and courteous. The water villa was a special treat for us. Upon entering the villa, the foyer is part of the large bathroom which is open at the top of the walls where you can hear the water and have good air circulation. A door open into the main room which is closed off to the elements. The entire west facing wall is shuttered windows and doors that can be opened. The large king size bed had mosquito netting for sleeping with the doors open. It was equipped with a TV that had a few english channels. The room also had a desk and love seat with coffee table. Upon returning from breakfast, the room was made up. Also, upon returning from dinner, the room was also tidied - a nice treat. The room opened onto a large deck of which have was covered. The covered half (with one side featuring a courtesy barrier) had a table with two chairs, a swing, and a clothes drying rack. The uncovered portion had two lounge chairs. My wife and I are avid snorkelers and loved being able to walk down our own steps to enter the water from our own villa. The house reef was amazing. We stayed for a week and snorkeled daily for 3-5 hours daily.
