5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very beautiful island without all the unnecessary things like swimming pool, flat screen TVs etc. It’s a real retreat from the stress of life. Great food. Rustic accommodation, understated elegance theme throughout, no plastic chairs in sight! You relax from the moment you arrive due to the chilled atmosphere the staff create. So much sea life sharks, turtles, eagle ray, sting ray etc. I will be back someday to lovely Makunudu.

Peaceful, Beautiful Manunudu

We love Makunudu and have returned there 3 times for its peacefulness and tranquility. A beautifully simple quiet hotel island, with just beach rooms, a single restaurant and bar. Snorkelling a plenty, good dive centre, some other water sports, no gym or pool.

Beautiful Natural Island

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff were so helpful and friendly. Couldnt do enough to ensure our holiday was pretty much perfect. The resort management, Ali and Sunil, were always on hand for any questions. The island is so beautiful and unspoilt ... the chef is brilliant and the food amazing. I know there are some renovations planned especially to the bathrooms which are now a little tired but overall the standard of the bungalows are very good. The bars/restaurant are lovely and the views over the island/water are breath taking ... the sunset cocktail bar is a must to visit as the sunsets are spectacular to see. There is no need for towels on sunbeds at 4am! Each bungalow has its own designated beds which are comfortable with mattresses and sit on the beautiful beach outside your bungalow. I would definitely visit again ... 2 weeks flew by! My only suggestion would be to perhaps make the island adults only .... there were very few children when we were there ... but they did make themselves heard. Overall, a holiday at Makunudu Island is definitely a must

amazing island resort, but disappointing coral

Everything is great in this island. The staff, the food, the activities on the island. The only problem is: we were very disappointed with the corals. plenty of them are already dying. There are often miscommunication with the staff about time, but they are very professional in general. There are two snorkeling activities: 1) Turtle Point Discovery: don't waste our money. You can do it on your own. 2) Snorkeling Discovery: nice Two ways to make this place better: 1) don't make fake sushi 2) get a new table tennis bat please
