Like no place on earth
This review is short as there is little to say apart from 'out of this world' We spent two weeks in a Beach Bungalow 211. Everything was perfect. The facilities, the location but especially the staff. Everyone single one was friendly, genuine and could not do enough to make our holiday truly memorable, which it was in every way possible. Best recommendation I can give it go experience it for yourself you will not be disappointed.
Best honeymoon location in the world
We were so impressed by not only the location and the villa, but also the hospitality of the staff! We spent a great deal of time choosing our honeymoon destination and honestly couldn't have picked a better place. Every detail was fantastic, from a free bottle of Ruinart champagne on arrival (yes Ruinart, which is usually around 200 USD in hotels) to these special "honeymoon touches", free beach towels to bring home as souvenirs, free "name your star", free romantic dinner on the patio where they covered the bath with roses and truffles and again another bottle of free champagne! I mean you were really pampered to the max and no extra costs, just wonderful hospitality. Also, I love the option of half-board where you don't have a ridiculous wasteful buffet for dinner, but you get to choose from the menu what meals you want and they're all included in the price, you can even have more if you are hungry, but it means no food shortage which is fantastic. We stayed in room 108 which was right on the edge, I would definitely recommend this - a beautiful sunset at the end of August. Also part of the honeymoon package was a free massage at the spa and I honestly can't recommend it more. I love massages and have had quite a few to know a good one from a bad one, sometimes spas in hotels just charge a lot because it's in a hotel and they need to make a profit, but this was honestly the best massage I have ever had, we even ended up paying for another massage 2 days later because it was just fantastic! We had never heard of this hotel and were inclined to spend our honeymoon at a more popular name such as One and Only or Four Seasons but they just don't have the same hospitality and care as Milaidahoo - seriously this was 5 star on all levels and you don't feel ripped off at any point as you would with the other more known brands where you would pay x2 more for a smaller room and less care. Couldn't recommend this enough! Oh and no kids allowed :) Heaven!
We've just returned from our amazing honeymoon adventure where we finished off our trip on this most stunning of islands. From the minute you arrive on Milaidhoo you are truly blown away by its beauty. When Ahmed our personal Island Host greeted us with cold towels and ice cold champagne we knew we were somewhere special. Milaidhoo Island is quintessential understated luxury. The rooms are absolutely huge and our water bungalow had the most spectaular sunset view. The snorkling is outstanding and the hotel provide you with all the equipement you need. We were staying on half board and can't speak highly enough of the food. The choice is almost limitless and the sevice exceptional. For our last night Ahmed recommended dining in the award winning fine dining restaurant Ba'theli Restaurant. It was the perfect end to our honeymoon watching the sunset in the most beautiful of steeings. We opted for the tasting menu and thought it was superb! Would definitely recommend it for a special treat. We were entertained by the huge stingrays and reef sharks too during the evening. Watching the most amazing fish swim next to us was magical. The attention to detail really made our honeymoon a trip of a lifetime and we can't thank Ahmed enough for his special touches to our room. The decorations, Champagne and honeymoon cake were very much appricated and made us feel incredibly special. Thank You so much Milaidhoo! Will will definiatly return x
4th visit ..... its just magic
Even though this is our fourth visit we still write honest reviews. Before visiting check what the wind direction is and the lie of the land for the beach and lagoon condition. The weather determines the best position for selecting a beach villa and also the best side for water villas. At the moment the best side for beach villas is the Ba'Thelli side of the island. it was my wife 50th birthday and also I saved my 100th dive for this trip. The celebrations for both were outstanding. Eulogising is very easy. You could be reading a long time and I would be writing for even longer. That said you will not be disappointed by any aspect of a visit from the rooms to the butler to the food service and the bar everything is spot on. I take my shoes off and Male airport and do not put them back on until I am back at Male airport on my way home, That's 20 days with no shoes at all at any time. Our island host was Hussy who was as usual quite outstanding anticipating our needs and making sure every day went as smoothly as possible. On the catering front be warned about the measures at the bar. Sarj is quite heavy handed and a "Sarj Single" is a UK treble, Ask for a chocolate martini they are superb. Special gins made to SARJ's recipe are also very good. Dimu will take care of your every food need. We prefer eating family style everywhere and it works for us. Not on the menu but worth asking for are the ribs with fries - marvellous!!! Diving at Ocean Stories is exceptional. Marc, Nazym and Michi are superb guides and CR on the boat is a great aide when you are getting in and out of the water. We saw some amazing sea life especially the red frog fish, turtles, shark, rays and the huge ornate eagle ray. Marc is exceptional at spotting the small stuff. What else can we say, 4th visit and not the last. Shuhan the GM runs a great team. He quite rightly has massive respect from all the island colleagues and makes himself available to guests on-demand. The formula works beyond expectations, the quality of the experience is personal, the whole holiday, all 20 days of it, were just magic.
