Exclusive customer experience
A very qualitative and exclusive customer's experience. Small island with a beautiful venue design, brand new, quiet and luxurious. Water pool villas are incredible. A specific mention to the food on the 3 restaurants, whatever the style, gastronomic quality from the lady Chef operating beautifully here. Deserts, salads, main courses, nothing is deceiving. All the crew is so kind and attentive to anticipate, answer positively our requests, you think everything's possible. I mention that we just spent 9 days there, during Covid crisis, and all the actions taken to respect social distantiation on the island does not make the stay painful. Dive center team also delivering high quality services. I warmly recommend this resort.
A smile cost´s nothing, but creates, much
Something about Maafushivaru…just can't describe with words.. After an exhausting long journey upon arrival, we were greeted on the jetty by some of the staffs and everyone whispered with A smile welcome home…(if I'm not wrong) Also, we would like to thank the people at the front line as well as behind doors, and to the entire team.. We both loved everything about the hotel, the rooms were huge and clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, often our bed was decorated with coconut palms… food & Beverages was excellent with a variety of color choice. Most importantly the staff was amazing, greeting & smiling ..its like everyone had such a passion for their jobs, Well done Lta Maafushivaru for employing such remarkable staff. Loved our 10-night stay and we will come back. Highly recommended. Deen
Pure paradise - TOTALLY RECOMMEND! Beyond 5*!
My girlfriend & I took our first ever trip to the Maldives in early December and it did not disappoint! Maafushivaru truly is an exceptional resort, a place out of this world which was perfection from start to finish & we will do our best to summarise the best bits because you simply must visit this beautiful island... For starters, the whole resort was completely refurbished recently, opening again in late summer of 2020 and literally everything was gutted out and replaced with brand new buildings, products, services...everything! So the place is spotless, everything in it place, the rooms immaculate and with all the added mod-cons you could ever dream of. I mean they even dug up palm trees and moved them to different spots on the island in order to achieve the best look - so trust us when we say, they have thought of absolutely everything to make this island a paradise. We stayed for 8/9 days in a 'Water Pool Villa' and we cannot recommend this choice enough. We did pretty extensive research into a number of resorts before choosing Maffushivaru and the rooms here blew the others out of the water! The beautiful high ceilings and expansive space in the villa is amazing. The bed is huge and the most comfy we have ever slept in and the bathrooms are INSANE (especially the bath with a view!). The finishings in the room are exquisite and you have everything you need for your stay. Your bedroom (& bathroom) doors fully open up on to your large decking area that soaks up the sun all day long and literally allows you to step right into the ocean and snorkel away... Food and Drink! If you enjoy good food and you like a tipple or two whilst you're away then you must choose the all inclusive package (dine all around) - such good value! Unlike many other resorts, the AI package includes access to ALL restaurants on the island and the range & quality of the food at all restaurants was incredible! We stayed for 9 days and still didn't manage to try everything and trust us, we ate a lot! And the cocktail list is ridiculous! Anything you could dream of is there and if it isn't, just ask! The other thing that made this trip for us was the staff. From the greeting when you first arrive at the jetty, with them all standing with their yellow umbrellas, to the moment you leave in exactly the same way, they can literally not do enough for you - you get treated like royalty! Every member of staff was fantastic but we do have some special mentions: Unais, Joy, Chara, Jamie, Pauline, Ashraf were a few of the amazing waiting staff. The timing of their service was perfection and they literally never let our drinks run dry! Lakshan, Niluka & Jiakn were the best barmen ever! They soon knew what we liked to drink and Lakshan would make us a new drink for us to try each day, without us needing to even ask for it! Salaah was our housekeeper and every day, without fail, our room was spotless and he even ran us the most gorgeous bath one evening - the most bubbles and rose petals you can imagine. Frankie, the housekeeping manager, is so smily and loves to get his dance moves out in the bar whilst Pippa, the marine biologist on the island, not only has one of the best jobs in the world but took us on the most informative snorkel trip! Then there is Pierre - the resort manager. He ensures he knows every single one of his guests, always works with a smile on his face and he ensured we had everything we needed for the most amazing week! Yoonan from guest relations was also super helpful. Despite there being over 1000 different island resorts to choose from in the Maldives, our experience here at Maafushivaru means we will definitely be coming back as soon as we can!! We made friends, we loved every moment, and it is truly recommended!
The best vacation of our life!

Thanks to everyone at Maafushivaru for making our stay a special one and making us feel like home. This was the vacation of a lifetime that I and my girlfriend will always remember and cherish the memories.
This resort is truly paradise. My boyfriend and I did a short start in a water pool villa, and I could not recommend it more. The staff were welcoming from the moment we stepped off the boat, and our villa was everything we'd hoped for and more. I did two spa treatments, both of which were wonderful and detail-oriented, not to mention the beautiful spa facilities. We also did the all inclusive package, which was great because there are so many dishes to try and a very extensive drinks list. I cannot recommend this resort more highly and hope to return one day.
