        Lovely island and great water villa!”

        Island is so beautiful, and you can stroll around it in about 15 mins. The food is good but very limited seafood. The staffs are all very nice and friendly, especially Ali, he is attentive and recognises us by our names. We really enjoyed our 8 days in the water villa very much, wish it could be longer!

        An unknown but little beautiful island”

        My 6th trip to Maldives. Have been to Banyan Tree, Angsana ihuru, Adaaran prestige, W, Veligandu... This is one of the cheapest full board, water villa I can find. Very quiet and you can say boring, but the sea is the same! Nothing much to complain, food is good, room is excellent (top notch for room), but nothing much to do on the small island, which was ok for me. Don't go as a group or family, this is extremely suitable for couples. Most of the guests are Italian, so the food is mainly catered for their taste, which was ok for me too.

        Vakarufalhi, my treasure! I definitely want to go again.”

        Vakarufalhi is my treasure. I chose this island with reference to Trip adviser. I have been booking this resort for 10 months. I stayed 6 nights and enjoy snorkeling every day for 2 to 4 hours. I saw turtles and rays, plenty of tropical fish and small sharks. The daily buffet also had many kinds and it was delicious. I woke up in the morning and enjoyed the breakfast slowly, snorkeled if the weather was fine, ate lunch, slept a little and enjoy the snorkel again. We will have a luxurious dinner slowly in the adjoining restaurant. I applied for all inclusive so I could drink or eat without worrying about the price. The only bad thing about this resort is that Wi - Fi is weak. I bought SIM at Mare airport and was not troubled. I will write the good points I felt. 1. Small lovely island, quiet and beautiful 2. Beautiful sea and lots of colorful fish 3. We can access the place immediately from the coast 4. Delicious cuisine with a change supervised by an Italian chef 5. Friendly and helpfu

        Simply Paradise”

        Same comments as nearly everyone else - beautiful, small, quiet island, hardly saw anyone else except at mealtimes. Stunning snorkelling, great food, friendly staff. Spent all but one night in water villa which was fantastic. On our one night in a beach villa we were woken at 4am and kept awake for hours by a squawking bird which seemed to be right outside our room. Hardly the resort's fault and not sure if this affected all beach villas but I wouldn't have been happy if that had been every night!

        This hotel has a great price/value ratio. Very relaxing atmosphere, no loud music. Reef is fine. And the food is fantastic! The deserts! The tuna carpachio! Would highly recomment and would love t come again. Staed at water villa - very private and huge. Balcony does not have a barrier, only rope - makes you feel really united with sea.

        Paradise on earth; great house reef around the resort”

        Try and stay in an Overwater Villa that has an EVEN number, as that has sunset views. We tried to request one out of the two Overwater Villas we booked, however was not lucky. Their restuarant and bar didn't even face sunset, which was a poor design, however the food made up for it. Delicious Italian chef designed food from great pastas to pizzas to mains and desserts! The only letdown was the house red, white and rose wines (and beer) that came with the Full Board Plan. Disppointing given the food was excellent! Staff were friendly, rooms felt luxurious but the little things like good toiletries (there wasn't even body lotion!), and toilet paper put the finishing touches to make it 5 star, which Vakarufalhi tried but failed. The house reef around the resort had plenty to keep you entertained as there was a lot of fishes, with baby sharks and little rays visiting the lagoon regularly.

        Overwater villa experience is a must!”

        We stayed in an overwater villa and requested at least an even numbered villa out of our group (even numbered rooms have sunset views), they were not able to accommodate. The villas were beautiful, spacious, and felt luxurious, however the little things like toilet paper and toiletries were disappointing and not up to 5 star standard. They didn't even have body lotion in the mix! The reef around the resort was pretty great with lots of fishes, baby sharks and small rays swim underneath the villas. The resort had full facilities (gym, day spa, various sports court, dive centre), and the staff were friendly. The food was delicious and hard to just have a plate, however the wines included in the full board plan was terrible. The red, white and rose was cask wine from Sth Africa, which is disappointing given the Italian inspired food and majority of guests. Ordered cocktails instead, and the bar was facing the wrong way. They would have sold more drinks if the bar faced sunset!

Snokeling Easy see shark swim by the beach and a lot fish. Resort provide free rent of snorkeling gear but u may need to rent a life jacket at $8 per day. Staff Friendly and helpful staff. We are there to celebrate my birthday and anniversary. They surprise me with a birthday cake and beautiful flower deco on my bed!!! They arrange everything including seaplane arriving and departure timing. We had not worries abt this. They allow us to checkout at 3.30pm. Big thank you to all of you!!

        We stay in the over water villa for 4 nights. The room is very big and comfy. The island is very beautiful, snoklling is great! The food was average, but with the price you pay, can't really complain. Everything was perfect on the first two days, but from day three, there are big group of tours arrived the island, which made this peaceful small island really noisy. We would only go back again if they no longer accept large group of tours.

        Nice room great reef and delicious food!

        I chosen Vakaru because firstly the reef is fantastic. You can snorkel around the island with very closely. The staff is helpful and willing to help. The staff can remember every guest and they always know what the special thing that you might need without asking. The food is really good and change in lunch and dinner. They have pasta bar and various pizza in lunch. I love sashimi ! They also provide afternoon tea with desert free every day. Nothing better than snorkeling and break with tea for charge energy. The spa is perfect with reasonable price. The cocktail is cheap I thought, and you can buy 1get1 in happy hour before dinner. The room is nice and huge bathroom. We love this resort!

        The water villas were fantastic, well worth the upgrade from beach villa. It is huge, large balcony (2 deck chairs + a lounge bed), big bathroom wiht a bathtub that overlook the sea. Very very nice. Food and service could be better but nothing that bothers us too much. The location and view is just too good.

        Great hotel, great location”

        Staff were extremely friendly, food was quite good

        I enjoyed my trip very much and really hated it that I had to leave. All the staff were friendly, the food was good, and the water villas were simply amazing! Huge toilets and I especially love the open concept where you can jump straight into the ocean from your villa and snorkel! Saw many creatures. The hotel also prepared a cake as well as some room decorations for my birthday. Everything was great except for an incident whereby one of the staff actually told me that I could join the Manta ray seeking excursion which took place just a few hours before my flight. I was really skeptical of it initially as I was concerned with the seaplane timings etc and was afraid I would miss my flight. However, she assured me time and again that everything would go smoothly and that she would be able to change my seaplane transfer to a later timing if it was really necessary. Then on the day before the excursion she came up to me and told me that my seaplane schedule was out and that I wasn't able to join the excursion. I was really disappointed and displeased so I spoke to the manager, Sayeed, and finally he offered to let us go on the excursion at an earlier timing. I am really thankful for that because we saw 5 giant manta rays and the experience was amazing. If we had not gone for that excursion, it would have felt like the trip was wasted because for both the dolphin and whale shark seeking excursion, we saw nothing. The only thing I was still not very comfortable about was that the female staff, who attended to me previously, did not greet me as usual and pretended that she didn't see me, which I felt was very unprofessional. She made the mistakes, she should bear the responsibilities. I hope this kind of negligence would not happen again to anyone else because it really spoilt my mood quite a bit. On a happier note, our waiter Ali was fantastic. We could not have been more satisfied with him.
