About Maafushivaru Maldives Resort

Situated on an idyllic tropical island, and bathed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Maafushivaru Maldives Resort offers guests the ability to make their most extravagant tropical island dreams a reality.

There are bungalows on both the island itself, and dramatically perched over the water as well. Each features air conditioning, minnibar, iPod dock, in room safe, tea/coffee station. All have gorgeous views, and the over-water bungalows also have decks with direct water access.

The central feature is perhaps the dramatic infinity pool, seemingly a mere extension of the ocean. Reception is open 24 hors and can arrange a whole host of waterports activities, including terrific diving.

There are many dining and drinking options available, from 135 East Japanese Restaurant to private dining in an exquisite and romantic setting on the beach.

The nearest island is about 20 minutes away by boat; otherwise it is quite remote, and a great spot for diving and other watersports.

Positive Reviews

Exceptionally good coral reef

Unlike many of the other Maldivian coral reefs, the one circling Maafushivaru seems to be very beautiful indeed. Guests said that it had not experienced bleaching, and they couldn't stop raving about the amazing colours and sealife to be found there.

Public areas kept spick and span

While there were a few issues with room cleanliness, guests said that the island itself, and its public facilities, are kept in tip top shape by the cleaners and groundsmen.

Excellent marine biologist on hand

The resort has a permanent marine biologist as a member of staff. She was said to be exceptionally knowledgeable and informative and really added a lot of value for guests, who would otherwise have known very little about the sealife they were viewing.

Negative Reviews

Some questions regarding service levels

While most guests absolutely loved their visit to the island resort, there were a decent number who highlighted small shortcomings that called into question its very high end luxury status. While any individual issue was quite small, they found more than just one, and felt that the hotel did not have the obsessive attention to detail that is the hallmark of a true luxury property.

Poor English sills

While this wasn't listed as a significant issue, it was mentioned that the front desk employees did not seem to have advanced enough English skills to be manning a desk at an international luxury resort.

Concessionaires can be a little difficult

Several guests mentioned that it could be difficult setting up trips with the many concessionaires on the island. It is not clear why the reception staff could not arrange these, but since they had to be done directly it was difficult to find the responsible person in the office to discuss the options available.
