What a wonderful place
Had a family Christmas holiday. It was unforgettable! The pampering starts from the moment you land in Male. The staff are super ! Friendly , courteous, helpful, to serve all needs. Food exceptional. The sea is great. Suggest the night dives . Great fun. And the villas amazing . Strongly recommended!
A very special place
We stayed for a couple of weeks beginning of March and were amongst the last to enjoy a stress-free holiday before the coronavirus restrictions kicked in. We stayed in a beach villa that faced east and gave us both stunning sun and moon rises. The wind was more prevalent on our side but was no more than a gentle breeze which made the heat more comfortable. The villa was incredibly spacious and we spent the whole time lounging around without once feeling restricted. It felt like our own resort within a resort. The deck was enormous with a variety of seats and loungers and the private pool was large enough for several strokes in any direction. There was plenty of shade and apart from the very occasional, distant guest wondering past along the beach (and it's the kind of place where most wave apologetically for the intrusion) we had total and utter privacy and peace. The food was exceptional. For variation we did try the Shoreline and Ba’theli restaurants but never tired of the Ocean, it took on a different identity every time we sat down to eat. Those who looked after us there were brilliant and gave us suggestions for unlisted dishes and variations on a menu which in the end we barely looked at. Like many hotels the Milaidhoo operates a “butler” service. Request go through your personal butler. They are available any time, day or night. There is constant communication between them and all departments. It seems even the smallest of requests and comments of any significance are passed on. It was a genuine pleasure to have met everyone at Milaidhoo, I’d mention names but wouldn’t want to leave anyone out. That said I have to say thank you to the wonderful Akoo. His kindness, patience and incredible efficiency made our stay beyond exceptional. In short, Milaidhoo is a small and very quiet resort which protects your peace and privacy. It gave us a level of contentment we have not felt anywhere else. From the General Manager down, there was a genuine kindness, concern and a total commitment to make our stay the very best it could be. It was. Next year we will once again be spending a couple of weeks at the Milaidhoo and hopefully in the care of Akoo. Prior to booking our holiday, I read in Trip Advisor a review which said "if you want anything then ask for it", trust me that is true.
Milaidhoo was the best tropical resort we have ever been to. Sun, sea, wonderful food and accommodation. There is a resident marine biologist whose enthusiasm is a real highlight. Went on tours to see dolphins and turtles. In the end though what made Milaidhoo stand out for us was the service; the staff are efficient and knowledgeable but more than that you feel that they are your friends which is a very pleasant experience. We cannot imagine a better Maldives/tropical experience and will return.
Top notch resort
If you're looking at these places you will want somewhere that can deliver the special remote island feeling - this place certainly can. It is quite small and seems to have a relatively small number of guests at a time. You won't see many other people in one place except for breakfast time. We stayed in an overwater villa which is just as it shows on the pictures - really special and of high quality. The deck area is superb with your own pool - which is a really good size. You cannot see the neighbours and they can't see you. Your steps lead down to the turqouise water and parts of the reef offer excellent snorkelling (no charge for lending you good snorkel gear). The exact location of the villa can make a difference - when we got there we were in a windward villa and there was wind which meant spray coming over the deck and the sea being too choppy to swim or snorkel. We were moved to a leeward villa which was much better in this respect. Water activities are available, some at five star prices, but there are some reasonable ones too. We were given the honey moon package (although it was slightly more than 6 months since our wedding). The prices of food and drink are high - to be fair probably what you would expect. There may be a little room for a special deal here and there - we were given a special deal on the mediterranean buffet on one night which was really good - my favourite meal there. The staff are really nice and helpful - they obviously work hard for every guest that comes along. I'm not sure if you need four or five people to ask you if you are enjoying your breakfast though! I do wonder if the resort could be a bit more eco- friendly with more local food? Do guests really need butter from France? Overall this place can give you that special island holiday -and it must be one of the best honeymoon locations in the world.
We spent 10 days on the island of milaidhoo, picked after much looking and we wanted a good reef! Well it certainly didn’t disappoint.. often when snorkelling you see the same few types of fish, etc but we saw everything! Sharks, turtles, eels, fish of all colours of the rainbow from tiny to super big! It was a pure delight! From the moment we stepped of the plane in male we were looked after superbly by the milaidhoo family , in particular Hussain. He was very kind and made sure we were able to do all that we wanted to do during our stay. All the staff go above and beyond their service and are happy to spend time just having a chat , we enjoyed getting to know Siraaz a little ! Our beach villa was better than the pictures and so big! The food was brilliant too. I would 100% recommend this island if you want a complete chilled paradise. In short, PERFECT!🏝
