I've read the other reviews on here and everyone sums it up perfectly. The island and the resort is just stunning. Even more beautiful than the pictures (#nofilter !!) We stayed in a water villa and the rooms were massive. We had very comfortable nights of sleep, and loved the privacy of the decks overlooking the ocean. My only gripe...

Just returned from our holidays on Vakaru, it was the 4th island we visited but first time here. We had a lovely holiday in spite of the transportation issues. Having read the reviews and tips on the room location I requested specific rooms but none were available upon our arrival. The manager, though, offered us a Beach Villa 124 facing...

We visited Vakaru for a week and could easily have stayed longer. This was our second trip to the Maldives and didn't disappoint. This is a small island that takes a little over 10 minutes to stroll around, there is one bar and one restaurant. We prefer a more relaxed island so this suited us perfectly, though I understand why...

Vakarufalhi is stunning. The island's white sand and bright blue waters are like nothing I have ever experienced. The only thing better than the stunning scenery were the staff. Everyone on this island was perfect, they all remembered my daughters name and spoke to her everywhere and went out of there way to make our stay. I am just so...

It was our first ever trip to the Maldives- tagged at the end of a family holiday in Kerala. We knew it was going to be beautiful from the pictures on the Internet search but O.M.G !!! The moment we got off the sea plane and on board a boat for the 5 mins trip to the island we were...

The Island is stunning! Everything was simply perfect, the Staff is very friendly, the food is more than tasty. We enjoyed our stay to the maximum. We had both, a watervilla and a beach bungalow. I recommend the beach bungalow simply for the reason of feeling the beach, having sand under the feet when you wake up, this is more...

Spacious indoor space, comfortable bed, huge outdoor deck, and large bathroom with expansive views of the water.

We stayed here for 10 nights. Being friends and two girls we did get some funny looks but why should only couples stay here. The water villa is amazing and everything you would want from staying in the maldives, bed is comfy and huge, air con worked well. The bathroom is just amazing and has a bath overlooking your deck...

From start to finish I could not find fault in this Island. I like high standards, and it did not disappoint. The staff were all very attentive and polite. The water villas size and location were fantastic. I hope to return next year.
