We have been for the second time to asdu with our 4 children The rooms are not nice the restaurant has plastic chairs but the food is excellent and if you want to be in paradase at a reasonable price this is where you should go

Summarise all the other reviews and you get Asdu. Yes ants, birds occasionally, cold showers but actually very refreshing, basic simple food and owners who lord over things at times, witness the family with a young daughter who lost their high chair a couple of mealtimes. Little things they could do better like serve you coffee at 6 am when...

The real problem were not the out of proportion ants in the room, the lack of sun chairs, the taste-killed food, the extra paid for wifi illusion, the doubtful hygienic circumstances, the Hitchcock like screaming birds at 4 am. Or the ever returning fish meal, the relatively costly and mildly engaging diving experience, the Guantanamo-like quality of the extra bed....

Got to know about Asdu through Tripadvisor. Was circumspect initially however wrote to Ahmed (owner) from Asdu. It was the best ever decision. Since this is my first trip to Maldives, I dont have any benchmarks to compare it with. But I was always looking for a no-frills natural place to stay and zeroed upon Asdu. It is a paradise...

this was our 5th visit to the Maldives (Fihalhohi, Full Moon, Vilu Reef, Ellaidhoo). We specifically look for a simple, small island because all we want to do is dive. No need for a pool or spa. This is getting to be a big challenge, it seems. We were glad, when we found Asdu. This is truly a 'no frills'...

I stayed on Asdu for 16 days starting May 1st, 2012. Above water: We had 2 rooms, 114 & 115 : they were spacious, clean and simple and it is honestly all that I care for when I travel. If you require luxury, dancing and dozens of activities, Asdu is not an island for you, it is quiet and simple,...

We were seeking a resort in the Maldives which did not have motorised water sport, did not have a pool, did not have bar fridges, air conditioning or over water bungalows. All those features seemed to be at odds with the ethos of Maldives - a nation that is already so much at risk with climate change. Asdu Sun Island,...

Without going into the usual superlatives bestowed upon the lovely Maldives, I will just say that Asdu is a good resort for a first trip to the Maldives. The whole island has a very 'village' atmosphere, laid-back and informal. Time seems to pass by slowly, and that actually isn't a bad thing if you want to take a break from...

This island is a simple place with no cars, no motorbikes only transportation your feet. Acceptable food and outstanding service. Diving and fishing great. But bring your hardhat to avoid the coconuts :-)

On my first visit to the Maldives, my girlfriend and I visited Asdu. The resort offers a laid-back atmosphere with good service and rustic accommodation and is in my opinion perfect for a simple beach holiday. There is no aircon and no hot water, but in hindsight, I would not have wanted it any other way. The manager told me...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Asdu is probably the smallest resort in the Maldives with an affordable price, apart from just one other more luxurious resort. This is by no means the cheapest resort. You may find other larger resorts of equal standard or of even better facilities with lower prices. We believe the small size of the Island ensures a certain degree of exclusivity, well worth the price we quote to our prospective guests. But we assure you that we have maintained a very consistent price structure over the last 10 years.This Island is especially ideal for those who love to be in a natural setting and prefer simplicity and informality on their vacation. Although the facilities are not deluxe, they are more than adequate and comfortable. ... more   less
