What a dream!
Constance Moofushi was everything we hoped for and more! My mother and I visited during the month of March and it was beautiful. The weather was hot but amazing throughout the week of our stay. We couldn't have asked for better service from the staff. They were very attentive and made us feel welcome throughout our stay on the island. The Senior Villas over water are even dreamer in person and provided a much needed and private escape. And the diving experience was no less than spectacular (close-up experiences with many manta rays and reef sharks.) We have already recommended the resort and it's all-inclusive package to close friends and we would soon return given the chance. Thanks for a lovely stay, Constance Moofushi!
THE CROWN JEWEL!
Let me preface this review that this was our third visit to Moofushi and with reason! They don’t call this the jewel island for nothing, and in my experience -is the crown jewel of the Maldives. There is simply no resort like Moofushi. Every single vista is breathtaking, and if like our family, you live to live in the water- then this is the place for you! I’m going to wax eloquent about the waters and beaches in this paragraph so feel free to skip ahead if this is not a particular area of interest. There are three particular places that I absolutely love- right by villas 78/79 is a wade able “water walk” where the cerulean sky meets the glorious blue of the Maldivian waters and this is an experience to die for. (We were lucky to score both villas 78/79 this stay- which was a dream come true. ) There is a similar area near the water villas close to the dock which is equally beautiful and shallower- a huge advantage if you are traveling with children, like we were.There’s also a little ocean pool, to the left of the reception- nice and shallow for young kids to happily splash in. I can forever talk about the waters of the Maldives- from every shade of blue near the dock, to the stunning sapphire of the lagoon( this is a dreamy duo- not all properties have lagoons), every setting is idyllic and soul uplifting. I live for the ocean- so if water is your thing- then I can tell you that every second in Constance is pure bliss. My second favorite thing about Constance is the spa! We splurged this trip and got 4 massages each. I cannot thank the therapists enough- my right knee that had been plaguing me for months, was instantly cured. These masseuses have magic hands!!!! Shout out to Jayanta, Maria, Demma for being particularly brilliant. My husband and I are sending you a huge virtual hug and we miss you something crazy! Let’s talk drinks- they have an incredible wine selection and Joseph, their sommelier is a superstar. So passionate, and so sweet, he got me to abandon my staple passion fruit margarita and sample wines! Their cocktails are perfect, and were my preferred choice of beverage. I have to mention here, that there has been a supply issue in regards to certain liquors( and this seems to be the case with all of Maldives) due to the pandemic, as a result of which, the Macallan that my father in law wanted was unavailable. However the staff goes above and beyond to make sure that substitutes are available. I love the Manta restaurant- the food has really improved- and it was perfect for my son, the picky eater. The staff in the restaurant is exceptional! So obliging and they remember little details like the tea you like, or that the kids always ask for mango juice and always had them handy. Binu, Sam and yabi ( I’m sure I have his spelling wrong) were so attentive- and made us feel so welcome everyday. Thank you for your graciousness towards our children in particular! Mani, the best chef on the island, went out of his way to make sure my son had everything he needed, and even made us a couple of dishes to suit our palate( I’ll never forget the best egg fried rice!!!) much love to you mani and may you always soar! I do wish they had more of a seafood selection though. The reef fish was abundantly available- but not always flaky, and sometimes rather hard and overdone. We forgot to make a reservation to Alizee, which is the fine dining restaurant! I’ve eaten there in prior stays and it’s always been good. Totem bar is perfect as well. Great food, great drinks in short:) Henri is running a beautiful island and always finds time to talk to all the patrons- it’s always a pleasure! The resort has been renovated, and looks bright and fresh. The relative lack of human interference in 2020 has made the hermit crab population explode- they are the cutest! The beaches look more pristine, and the fish seem to have returned somewhat. We snorkeled several times and could definitely observe the difference in how nature has rejuvenated with the closure during the pandemic. It’s beyond beautiful! I could get lost in these waters and their beauty! Ask for Lal at the dive center- he’s the nicest person in the world, and he will ensure whatever experience you choose will be top notch! Lastly I cannot emphasize how safe we felt during our stay here. We could pretend for a week that the pandemic didn’t exist. The resort is doing a brilliant job organizing testing and Checks and ensuring safety. We are a family of physicians and have never felt safer- so that says a ton. All in all- let me end by saying I will forever return to Moofushi. There will always be a special place for this resort in my heart- and every time I leave, I leave my soul behind. Thank you to everyone that made our visit perfect! We cannot wait to see you in 2022:))
Great all-inclusive and perfect getaway
This was our third stay in Maledives, and also this resort exceeded all our expectations. We chose the Moofushi island because of the good ratings of the Constance resorts and the closeness to one of the worlds few whale shark sites. The Constance Moofushi provided a wonderful and safe heaven right from the start. We had to do a PCR test immediately after arrival for our own and other guests security. The results were communicated to us only half a day afterwards. After that, we felt very much in paradise, not needing to use masks and able to serve ourselves from the excellent buffets in the main restaurant. Henri the GM and Louana, his deputy, were present around the premises all the time, and extremely attentive to help with anything we needed. We found it great to hear from them that by the end of this month almost all their employees on the island had already received their first Covid vaccination! The island is small and very naturally arranged. It feels luxurious and private, with little spots all around that seem to have naturally evolved and not artificially installed. We liked the clientele very much, it was a good mix of Europeans and other cultures, many couples and some small families. The Moofushi employees were incredibly kind and helpful all the time. The Moofushi has a not only a great wine selection, but a most amazing specialty restaurant, which is included for free once during a 7 night stay: the Alizee has definitely star level. Indunil, the cook and his dedicated sommelier had great recommendations for us to taste. A big thank you to the incredible Gopan from the main bar who makes wonderful cocktails and every night tried his German skills with us. He always took care of our wishes with a wonderful smile and happy face. Priyantha manages the desserts and many other things in the main restaurant. He is not only extremely dedicated (57 homemade ice cream brands!!!), but caters to personal needs like my wish for a gluten-free chocolate cake. The best I have ever eaten! We enjoyed very much the themed buffets in the main restaurant, which range from authentic maledivean flavors to Asian, Indian and international specialties. Accomodation: We had a beautiful water villa and loved to see the baby sharks all around us at the beach. The water sports team is super helpful, whether you want to go snorkeling amongst colorful fish and healthy corals, windsurfing or standup- paddling. Great gym with new and high end machines, where we enjoyed to have short daily workouts. Our best experience definitely was the day trip with the speedboat to see the whale sharks. The dive center, especially our guide Mauro went great lengths to find “our” whale shark before all other boats arrived. Thank you Mauro for an unforgettable experience snorkeling along this beautiful animal, and special thanks for taking the time to video us and send all the little snippets of this excursion, including our four turtle sightings, via WhatsApp!! The Constance Moofushi is worth a travel if you like a private and well- managed island with beautiful settings, rustic and authentic accommodations, and great snorkeling/ diving. We very much enjoyed the service, food and wine, and are tempted to go back soon. Thank you, Henri and team!
Our 8th time Moofushi - the best ever
We came to Moofushi with mixed feelings, how will it be in these strange times - our doubts were wiped away from the first minute, we are still totally overwhelmed. The Moofushi Spirit can be felt everywhere, welcome to the Family. We had so much fun with all the staff and of course with so many Guest. Nobody can escape this good mood. Hey Guys you want extraordinary barefoot Luxury paired with a casual way of life, then come to Moofushi. Thank you so much to spend such wonderful 14 days with all of you. Yesterday we booked Moofushi for February 2022. Anticipation is the greatest joy. Lots of Love, Bigi & Franz
My Best holiday to date !
What can I say but wow ! This island is unique. The snorkelling is amazing and the Blue tribe team are fantastic! The food is super fresh with lots of variety. Nothing is to much trouble for the chefs and staff . We stayed in a senior villa for 11 weeks ! We loved it that much we didn’t want to leave . The manger Henri and his assistant manager Roula are unbelievable! We have booked again for September and January. I can’t wait !
