Our stay at The Residence Maldives was beyond any expectations! All service was excellent, food was delicious and Covid precautions were taken seriously enough, including the possibility to take a pre-departure test. The Residence offers amazing treatments and massages. I can recommend the Clarins Serenity ritual. Me and partner tried this ritual and we were super happy with it - very relaxing massage and facial. We also recommend having a dinner at the Falhuma restaurant, which is situated at a deck which is lays over the ocean and you can watch waves in the distance while enjoying great food and service. Villas were clean and had all we needed. We were moved from Falhuma island to Dhigurah due to less guests during covid. By being moved, we got a villa with a nice pool, where originaly we had booked a villa without a pool. This was a great bonus which we appreciated very much. Also try complimentary yoga class in the evening, if you fancy a stretch, the yoga master could recognize our limits very well and adjusted the exercise so that we won't die at the end :-) (we're complete beginners, so don't worry about your level, anyone can enjoy this class). We also saw many turtles during our snorchling and scuba diving trips, amazing marine life! We could also see some trouble making guests around and the staff was dealing with all situations in a great way. Big thank you to all staff that was taking care of us during our stay, they were all super sweet and professional.
