Water Bungalow

Walk along a wooden jetty out to your Water Bungallow ,in a sheltered lagoon, water about waist high, clear and full of exotic fish and a few Sharks (small and young,no danger)And only appear at nightime. Room clean,airy with mini fridge BUT? you have to pay for the contents (they are double if not more than shop prices,so beware)

Beautifull view, balcony with steps leading down to the water for you early morning swim! Your own sun loungers, large bathroom, Room always kept clean and tidy. And air conditioning,a must.

I have only been to the Banyan Tree in Vabbinfaru.

This is a five star hotel. The most unique thing is that the whole Island, though small, is occupied by this hotel, and hotel residents can walk round the Island on its beautiful beaches, or kayak in the shallow waters surrounding the Island. The seashore is neatly prepared such that you can even order a sunset dinner under the shelter by the seaside.

Kanuhura Sun Resort & Spa in Maldives, opened in February 2000, is a luxurious five star hotel, offering the highest standard of accommodation, service and culinary experience.

A well planned nationality mix gives the resort a truly international feel and brings together interesting people from diverse cultural backgrounds and various walks of life.

Every effort has been made to retain the natural beauty of the island, and wherever possible natural materials have been used. Only one third of the island surface has been used for buildings, leaving a feel of spaciousness and tropical splendour.

Complimented by its size and layout, Kanuhura offers a choice of pure relaxation, or for the more sports oriented, an active holiday experience.

On all but the main island a hotel is an island resort that occupies all of the island ( afew islands have 2 or 3 resorts). Most islands are small enough to walk round in 20-40 minutes. Most are expensive and need booking before you arrive.

Bandos is good, but there are so many....

Paradise Island Resort: A Good hotel for all

We stayed at this 5 star property for 3 N/4 D, we were on our honeymoon, they gave us a complimentary fruit basket and a bottle of champange, we stayed in a deluxe beach bungalow, the location of the beach bungalow is just 20 meters from the beach, the bathroom has a bath tub and also an outdoor shower.

There are also beach beds provided for each room to carry along with you when you lie on the beach, overall the rooms were quite spacious had most of the modern ammenities like any 5 star hotel, spacious bath room with a decent outdoor shower and a small balcony a few meters from the beach.

The island is relatively large in size, about 1 km in length and 250 m in width, so if your bungalow is located at towards the ends of the island then expect to do some walking to get to the main restraunt and swimming pool, lobby etc.

The distance from the airport is 9.6 kms, they offer speed boat transfers. The island has a huge beach, one swimming pool, gym, indoor sports and offered numerous excurisons, had a dive center too, they excursions were costly and so was everything else on the island including the gift shop and restraunts but i guess this is the same in other islands as well

Sangu Resort

The level of service in the Sangu Resort was excellent as was the selection of food. There was a buffet style breakfast with various hot and cold selections as well as a cooking station where the chefs would prepare omlettes, fried eggs, scrambled eggs etc.

We chose to stay in a Jacuzzi Beach Villa because in order to use the facilities of the Sangu Resort your accommodation had to be either a Jacuzzi Beach Villa or a Water Villa. Our personnal thoughts were that the Water Villas were possibly at the wrong side of the Island whereas the Beach Villas had a fantastic uncrowded beach and the sun virtually all day.

Laguna Beach Resort.: A return journey here is on the cards.

Beautiful surroundings is standard fare in the Maldives, so you shouldn't be disappointed in that respect if you choose Laguna Beach.

We stayed at the Laguna Beach resort which is only a 40 minute boat trip south from the airport and we were very impressed with this island. You will certainly have the choice of water bungalows or opt for land villas only a short distance from the water's edge. The resort has its own dive centre and has 5 restaurants including Chinese, Italian, BBQ and a la carte.

You will be able to walk round the complete island in approx 15 mins and the capital Male is within easy reach for a day trip.

The Laguna resort is part of the Universal Group and is equipped with modern facilities, good choice of dining options and has a small number of small shops which sell local hand made crafts and hire snorkelling gear. There is also a spa for those who want to pamper themselves and a tennis court for those who feel energetic.

There is a small pool area. However, when there is beautiful clear crystal waters and white sands only a few strides awy, it is unlikely that you will be spending much time here.

You will also be able to hire a speedboat or paddle a kayak round the island. I went round our island twice and wondered why I had stiff shoulders the next day!

In common with the majority of the islands, Laguna has its own coral reef and it is possible to snorkel out 150m and still be in only 2 feet of water. There is an abundance of fish in the area so make sure you take an underater camera. Even the cheap disposable cameras produce surprisingly good results.

In summary Laguna is an excellent resort and one which I will be visiting again in the future.

Meeru: Meeru island

Had the most fantastic stay on the island of Meeru.We stayed in a Jacuzzi land villa and it was out of this world! There are four types of accomodation on the island-standard rooms,land villas,jacuzzi land villas and jacuzzi water villas.You can stay Half board,full board or all-inclusive,i would recommend half board unless you are a big drinker! On the island you have various things to keep you occupied including tennis courts a badminton court,football pitch,table tennis and french boules.I loved the snorkelling it was simply superb with an abundance of fish.There are also various excursions as well.There are four restaurants one for those staying in standard rooms and land villas and for everyone else.There is also a boat tied up along a jetty where anyone can enjoy the fine seafood on offer and also there is an asian style restaurant.The food is amazing wherever you eat and there is a great choice.There are two bars on the island both of which have lovely views overlooking the ocean and they prove very popular during sunset.

Our jacuzzi land villa was super-a four poster bed,cd player tv,tea and coffee facilities and your own private back garden complete with jacuzzi.

HULHULE ISLAND HOTEL ( AIRPORT HOTEL): Overwhelmingly Beautiful, but expensive.

Hotel is a bit older but rooms are clean. Maldives is a vacation spot tucked away for more travelers. Hotel resorts are very expensive and there are no real budget places to stay with the exception of on the island of Male, which is very overcrowded. Everything is imported, so hang on to your wallet. A soda or even a bottle of water will run you 5-6 USD. Not a place to go, unless your rich and money is no object.

Pool and food were a outstanding.

Diamonds resort: Ari atoll - Athuruga island

We choosed this island out of many others, as they offered an all-inclusive which suited our needs... Well, at the end we were more than enthusiast, even if we had almost 7/7 rainy days... Maldives are really wonderful, Athuruga is simply the typical island people see on brochures. We had a beach bungalow as we thought that overwater ones would be too loud, but it wasn't true. Over water there are very big, modern and you can enjoy the holiday at best. But anyway, also beach ones were good, with the particularity (?) of the outdoor shower, very beautiful.
The sand is white, the water is trasparent, what do u want more? :-)

Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi Ocean Villas: The Sun, the sand, the OCEAN

Having made Ocean Villa our Choice of Stay together with an Full-board (All inclusive meal package), We have our assigned Butler whom is always a call away, whenever you need him.

Butler Services
Being Ocean Villa guests, you are fully-pampered with little gestures such as reserved meal tables, buggy ride services e.t.c. Leaving a little tip on your table after meals helps to leave an impression with the servers and rest assured, they do remember you and will pay full attention to your needs when you return for your subsequent meals, ensuring that your cups are always filled, your empty plates are cleared when you leave for your 2nd servings at the buffet spread, and engage you with those little talks to make you feel 'important and noticed'.

Make up rooms
Rooms are make-up twice per day;- i.e one in the morning when you are out for breakfast and another in the evening when you leave for your dinner. Towels are replaced and 2 bottles of complimentary mineral waters are delivered to your villa daily.

Sunset Restaurant
The Sunset restaurant located at the arrival jetty is about 10 minutes walk from the ocean villa. With a hitch-ride on the buggy by our butler, it takes less than 5 minutes. This is where ocean villa guests are ushered to have our lunch and dinner.

Pool Bar
Having opted for the all inclusive package, the pool bar is just a stone throw from the main reception and next to the swimming pool. You can simply walk up and order your choice of soft drinks, alcoholic, non-alcoholic, cocktails, all featured on the menu.

Breeze Restaurant
This is a stone throw from our ocean villa, which i never fail to visit daily and especially after dinner. You can sit down, have your beverages served and at the same time, enjoy the silence of the night, accompanied by the sound of waves, stars above your head, and the cool breeze. At night, the lights reflected on the seabed attracts sting rays, variety of coral fishes and occasional black tips. This is a must, and strongly recommended for pure relaxation.

Coconut Spa
The spa provides a wide range of skin care and massage services which i personally did not try as that was not on my agenda.

Souvenir Shops
There are a few outlets located near the main reception as well as close to the Sunset Restaurant with staggered opening hours, clearly stated at the entrance of the shop. USD$ is accepted for purchases.
