We have been here twice. It is a good hotel on a beautiful island. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing even though sometimes kids can be annoying.

Medhufushi Island Resort trip

4 out of 5
by from California
Posted Oct 24, 2014
Pros: The resort was beatiful and staffs were friendly.
Cons: Food may need to be more creative. Sushi bar was not that great. Need to cut shashimie better.
Location: Go snorkle and scuba dive because you are in Maldive. Beautiful marine life every where.
This was our first time staying at Medhufushi Island Resort . We stayed there for 5 nights in the Over Water Bungalow. The resort is beatiful and food was good. We did the haft board deal which includ breakfast and dinner. The resort provided free snokling tour which was a bonus and nightly entertainment at one of the bar restaurant. We were here in October so the weather was kind of raining on and off. But, over all we had the best time here. The staffs here are wonderful people.

Perfect Honeymoon Spot.

5 out of 5
by from Perth, Western Australia
Posted Jun 28, 2014
Pros: Great staff, very focused on high service standards. Water villa was fantastic, I was glad we spent the extra to get one.
Cons: Not enough free water provided - 1L per day for 2 adults is not enough. 7.30pm dinner service was too late, we eat at 6 usually.
Location: Snorkelling is a must, don't bother with the groups, go by yourself. We saw turtles and sting rays and all kinds of fish. Also the 'fun sports'!
We stayed here for 10 days on our honeymoon. The staff were generally very friendly and helpful. We spent our days snorkelling, swimming, relaxing, and simply staring off our deck at the beautiful surrounds. It was a 40 minute seaplane ride to and from Male Airport, but I think that the seaplane ride was an experience in itself (bring earplugs, the engines can be a bit too noisy for some people.) We had a Water Villa, sunrise side, which in our opinion was much better, no glaring sun in the afternoon heat meant we could spent our afternoons comfortable on the deck. I would have been kicking myself if we'd gone all the way to paradise and not spent a little extra on the room. The buffet had a good selection, with some staples and always a new dish to try each night - Sri Lankan Egg Hoppers are my new favourite thing! We were half board, originally we thought we could get away with it but with dinner starting so late (730pm) and breakfast finishing at 945am, it was just too long a time to go without eating. All the same it was much nicer to order room service or stroll to the restaurant adjoining the Vilu Bar. Also cheaper than to pay to sit in the buffet for a 3rd time in a day. Read the information sheets they give you, there are some great free activities but the staff don't verbally advertise them, and if no one shows up they cancel. We very nearly missed out on crab racing because there was not enough people signed up - we went and grabbed people to join!

Beach villa

4 out of 5
Posted May 26, 2014
Pros: Tranquil beach setting. Grounds well maintained. Pleasant room.
Cons: The bathroom had a problem with ants. Sometimes the toilet was covered in them. No wifi in the room. Speed was terrible.
Nice beach cottage. The hotel staff was not as well trained as we expected. When we checked in, they apologized for no Wifi in the room but we were offered the option to purchase wifi in the public are which we did. It was agonizingly slow - .3 MB/sec. After almost a week, one of the employees offered us a SIM card for purchase. We did that and it was great. We felt like this should have been offered by the hotel but wasn't. We told the food and beverage manager about our dissatisfaction with the internet offered and then he told us about buying a SIM card. Why did they not offer this until we complained? We intended to kiteboard but when we inquired about it they said the person who does that was away for a month. Very disappointed about that. With limited activities, they should have that covered so it is available always. Price for diving was about three times what I usually pay at other dive resorts around the world. Prices for staples in the gift shop were very expensive. In one case, 5 times what we pay at home in the drug store for basics.

Excellent hotel for our first trip to Maldives

5 out of 5
by from Melbourne, Australia
Posted Apr 29, 2014
Pros: Staff were always helpful and very friendly, food at the dinner buffet was amazing. For the 5 nights we stayed it never failed to disappoint us.
Cons: Facilities at the resort could be improved, activities etc.
Staying in an over water bungalow we really loved our stay at Medhufushi and it proved to be an excellent choice for our first stay in the Maldives. The staff for breakfast and lunch were always very friendly and welcoming. We also had a chance meeting with Kevin the resort manager who was extremely friendly and chatted to me and my wife for around 30 minutes on random topics, turned out to be one of the most interesting people I have ever met.
