Best hotel ever!!!!
Me and my family went to this hotel. It was absolutely amazing! The snorkeling was the best thing there. The visibility was outstanding and the creatures were amazing. The staff was super nice and very fun. The manager was super nice and happy.
Relax in paradise
We went as a family with our daughter and 1,5 years old baby boy. It was a very last minute holidays and we were a bit worried how it will be in these “COVID” times. In summary: Absolutely fantastic holidays with perfectly executed take on the COVID situation. Highly recommend this amazing paradise where everyone from top management down to every employee is super nice, attentive and will make your holidays the best you ever had! We were to Maldives quite a few times now but this was the best experience. Having a little baby we thought it might be difficult but Chris and Silvia did everything for us to have all we needed - mind you, we are very demanding but the service was simply superb! There is sooo much to do and the food was simply delicious. As one of us is a vegan, we were nicely surprised by the variety the chefs managed to do every day to provide great meals with maintaining the high standard! All the facilities are nice and clean and the laid back, bohemian feel is pure perfection to this great bare foot island. Snorkeling, diving, yoga, water sports, volleyball and more is there for you to enjoy as you like. Every day there is a program/ excursions you can join if you wish too. Everyone is very helpful and very kind. We will definitely be coming back! We highly recommend this place - simply paradise!
Wonderful Christmas Break
My partner and I booked a very last minute trip to this fabulous island resort. We’ve visited the Maldives several times but this was our first visit to Athuruga and it exceeded our expectations. I can honestly say that the island staff proved to be the most attentive and friendliest we’ve ever encountered. Special thanks to Chris, Sylvia, Viktor, Hussein, Inga , Klaudia and our super waiter Nashid . Our 8 day stay spanned Christmas. It was truly memorable and the staff seemed to hit exactly the right note when it came to the festivities . We had a complimentary snorkelling trip and spectacular gala dinner on Christmas Eve and mulled wine and a bonfire on Christmas Day Snorkelling the house reef was good despite quite a bit of coral die back. However the fish were plentiful and we still managed to spot lots of interesting things such as moray eels and eagle rays. It was great to see Inga’s coral nurseries and hopefully her hard work will pay off in the not too distant future and help to regenerate the reef. Accommodation wise we had 6 nights in a beach bungalow and 2 in a water villa. I’d highly recommend this combination. We will definitely visit this lovely island again.
Luxury in the time of Covid
We spent a beautiful 2 weeks here in November/December 2020. We brought our 5 month old baby along and the staff was brilliant, could not have been more accommodating for our little family. The hotel was very quiet as it had only just reopened, and it was so nice and peaceful, every member of staff we dealt with was an absolute delight. Chris & Silvia were always on hand to answer any questions we had and I was so impressed on our last day, we had a really late flight and they facilitated a late checkout and getting to stay in the villa as long as possible without us even asking. We stayed in a water villa, it was absolutely beautiful and we loved having breakfast every morning just staring at the endless water! Bed was insanely comfortable, great little crib for my son, our housekeeper Hussnee was great and totally worked with our schedule of the baby napping & being out of the room to keep our room clean and tidy. Did lots of diving with Mike in the in-house dive shop, he was great and took us to some great dive sites. Loads of sharks, my fiance was even lucky enough to spot a manta on one dive. The house reef is great for snorkelling, loved the baby black tip sharks in the shallows every day, and I loved grabbing a paddle board from the water sports center in the morning for a peaceful paddle. We had such a great time we wish we stayed longer. This is one of those gorgeous locations that is exactly as you see it in photos - no filters needed, just pristine and beautiful! Thanks to all the staff for taking care of us so well!
we are not in the Maldives for the first time but if we recommend something it is that we are in Paradise. We are talking about something super small, familiar, with extremely nice people and involved to be good to us. Hello Sivia, Thanks Kris, congratulations to the chef. We kiss you and wish you the best!
