        One of the best resorts in Maldives”

        Very satisfied with the hotel in every respects, ie location, quality of services, kindness of the staff members, interior and exterior of the water villa. Must visit place if anyone plans to visit Maldives. I chose to stay at The Residence at falhumaafushi, but you can enjoy and experience the same service at The Residence at Dhigurah, which is an island lacated right next to Falhumaafushi. Those two islands are connected with an 1 Km bridge, which would be a nice ride. I am very satisfied with The Residence at Maldives overall. Highly recommend to anyone who plans to visit Maldives.

        Everything was great! Staff were friendly and welcoming, very smooth check in and check out. Staff also tried to fulfill all our requests! The only draw back was the very lengthy time the buggies would take to come pick you up from the villa to take you to the restaurant or the beach bar.

        The resort is not big, it gives people a quiet n peaceful environment... It’s location required to fly a domestic flight for 55 mins n additional charges of around USD350 The whole place is well maintained The staff r very helpful, esp the executive chef.. he came to greet the guests every meal n asked for comments... The best is our comment is taken n see improvements next day or on our request Highly recommended if u like snorkelling, there r plenty to see just by jumping into the water from the water villa After this June, a bridge will be opened to link two islands together, there will be more spaces n choices of restaurants n hopefullly more activities

        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.

        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.

        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.
