Our honeymoon at Vakkaru Maldives was truly a dream! Every aspect of our stay was perfect. Our butler Iku was so incredibly nice and professional. We were greeted by his contagious smile and knew we were in great hands. We started our days with the breakfast buffet. The food selections were great — from healthy parfaits to dimsum. My favorite was the fruit section as well as the juice bar. Big shoutout to the sweet man behind the juice bar every morning! He had memorized my order and was so excited to see me every morning. Now, onto food! Everything was very fresh and delicious. Our favorite was the Asian restaurant, Onu. The flavors were truly phenomenal! Highly recommend the Laksa soup.. we were addicted to this dish! Not only was the chef at Onu unbelievably talented and really knows what he’s doing, he was such a pleasant, sweet person, who cared about your experience. We also enjoyed the beautiful sunset dinner we had at Vakku — the octopus was outstanding! One of our favorite parts to the trip was making cocktails with mixologists, Khairul and Sega. They were so much fun and made the best drinks. They taught us their techniques and special recipes. We were blown away by the sophisticated flavors! If you plan to stay at Vakkaru, make sure to find these guys and have Sega’s award winning drink! Thank you to the Vakkaru team for making our honeymoon so special!

They've maintained the original trees and built around them preserving a natural jungle vibe. Crystal clear turqouise water! So shallow when you step into the ocean from your villa. Plenty of aquatic life to appreciate from your deck & experience the minute you step into the ocean. The most stunning, breathtaking views everywhere you look. Enjoyed biking around the resort after breakfast & then going for a dip in the indian ocean every single day of our stay! The staff was absolutely amazing! Special thanks to our butler, Buddy and Jameel (food & bev mgr) for making our stay wonderful and my birthday truly unforgettable!!! Umar set up our beautiful destination dining for my birthday right at the beach & was a great host! Looking forward to revisiting this paradise again in the future!

Beautiful new hotel with amazing staff
We loved our stay at Vakkaru , from arrival to the departure we didn’t feel like a guests- we felt like a family or very close friends .. The staff doesn’t fail to smile 24/7 and the extend of pampering and care of you it’s enormous! They would never say no to anything! Especially Sam our buttler was amazing, along with Firo, Niam, italian chef and the list goes on.... The island itself is incredibly beautiful with lots of nature and lovely house reef just outside the water villas .... we loved everything about our stay there - food, wine, beaches, people, our villa etc.etc. :)
