    Located at the south, a bit far from male. Near equator, usually have unexpected weather. The island is quite,beautiful , very clean, rich sea life, nice staff. Must join the dolphin search, there are so many dolphin around that area. The food is only average, not as expected. The hotel is very considerate. Our domestic flight depart at 1900 and they allow us to extend check out hour to 4:30.

    Thank you The Residence Maldives for generous hosting ”
    I would say this is the place you should celebrate your honeymoon for many reasons. The most important one is they treat you as “ king “. The second thing that I like is my wife forgot her lenses and she could not see without it, I contacted with reception and I told them about what happened. They said don’t worry we will solve it for you, and you have to spend your honeymoon in the way you planned. Ten hours later, They brought the lenses for my wife.

    Truly the absolute best vacation experience of my life! It met and exceeded every expectation I had. I wanted to take a trip alone that would provide me with peace and quiet, as well as a once in a lifetime experience. This was it:) Loved The Residence, the room, the ocean, the staff, the restaurants, everything.

    Really just perfect ”
    Pros: -3 separate rooms in each overwater villa (living room, bedroom, bathroom with 2 huge showers) -Best service quality I have ever experienced, far better than Bora Bora 5 star resorts. They have 200-300 employees relative to less than 100 rooms. -Lots of activities to choose from including paid excursions, diving, watersports etc. and also complimentary activities hosted every day by the resort such as movie night, adventures, yoga classes, etc. -Falhumma is almost a Michelin star restaurant in my opinion -Great pool -No mosquitos -Every minute of every day was fantastic, time went by too fast Cons -Takes a 1 hour domestic flight from Male to get there follows by a speedboat, probably a little longer than most other resorts - we landed in Male at 12pm and was at our bungalow by 4pm. Probably takes about an hour longer to get to than most other resorts. Was planning to try another resort next time in Maldives but not sure how we can not come back here after this.

    Best Beach Holiday Ever”
    We had a wonderful visit to The Residence Maldives where we spent four peaceful days snorkeling along the superb house reef. The reef is healthy with many varieties of fish, sea turtles, rays, and the occasional reef shark. As my daughter said, "We met the entire cast and extras of Finding Nemo and Finding Dory." The resort staff are wonderful people - so helpful and friendly. The facilities are absolutely perfect. Our two bedroom villa was great for our family of four offering us some quiet time alone and our two teenagers space. We were beach side on the lagoon where we were able to watch the sun rise each morning and watch baby reef sharks swim right past our feet. We highly recommend The Residence Maldives.

    Not Recommended”
    The large pool, the reefs
    It was fairly ok. The large pool was the only plus in the hotel. The staff were friendly. The room service was excellent. However i seriously do ot recommend the hotel to anyone. It is soooo far! You have to pay for a domestic flight which is one hour and then you have to hop on a 10 min boat. After a long flight from home to male airport, the last thing you want is to do is pay for an additonal flighr and wait 3 hours in male airport and then another hour flight! By that time the whole day is wasted. I found out the hotel give complimentary half board and full boards and transportation fees covered but we didnt get anything. It is waaay over priced. This is our second time in maldives. Our first stay at the W retreat was excellent! I recommend the W hotel for sure!

    Experiencia positiva”
    El hotel está bien, la comida fabulosa y el personal fantástico, son muy atentos y amables. En comparación con otras Islas en las maldivas, esta isla tiene poca área de playa y la zona que se encuentra en frente de las villas de playa es bastante rocosa. Por otro lado, las villas que se encuentran sobre el agua, tienen poca privacidad en comparación con otros hoteles. Aun así, nuestra experiencia en general fue positiva.
