"ISLAND Always spotless, people raking the beaches early in the morning so you awaken to perfect white sand. I, personally, loved sitting on the jetty/pier and watching the sea planes fly in - always a great photo op. Also the peninsula at the end of the island was lovely to walk down to and when we went there were loads of baby black tipped reef sharks swimming around the island and they seemed to like it there the best! (harmless sharks - i checked.) ROOM Kept clean and tidy, beds folded down in the evening into shapes as on other islands but you felt closer to the room boys as ours even left us a message! (which was probably quite hard to write as it was in English!) We still have it. STAFF All the staff are wonderfully helpful and make the visit all the more enjoyable. Always someone there to help and they are all very approachable. By far the bar staff stand out the most as they are so lovely and you feel very close to them by the end as they have told you all about their lives and families. ENTERTAINMENT Although at first we found it a bit "cheesy" it definitely grew on you, compared to other islands the entertainment was very enthusiastically done by the staff and provoked lots of laughter throughout the evening. Even if you didn't go and watch it was nice to know that it was there. Dads birthday happened whilst we were on holiday and they made a cake as on other islands but it was made very special as the lights in the whole dining room are dimmed as the waiters sing and play the drums and circle the dining room before coming to your table with the cake. SWIMMING/SNORKELLING/DIVING Swimming is OK but only in certain parts as there is some shallow areas (as on all islands) and some areas too corally for you to stand on the sand which is a shame. The snorkelling was average in most areas, although around the pier was exceptional. BUT to see the bulk of the wildlife, going on the snorkelling outings is OUTSTANDING. We saw huge sea turtles and manta rays which seemed to glide past about 1m from us! Its was brilliant. Although I myself did not personally scuba dive, my dad did, and this island is well known for being close to loads of great diving spots and the dive centre is amazingly equipped and the staff are very professional. FACILITIES Spa was lovely, go and make a booking and have a luxury massage as I did! The girls who do them are lovely and the whole atmosphere in the spa is great. As said before the diving centre is awesome and the people there are really nice, along with the canoe/catamaran hut down by the peninsula. The gift shop is cute and there is always someone at the bar to assist you. Also the is afternoon tea/morning biscuits in a separate little hut which is free and in the morning you get biscuits and croissants (left from brekkie) and at about 3 there is pizza and sandwiches - all with a nice cup of tea was perfect. OVERALL The holiday was great, its just such a shame that all UK tour operators have pulled out of the island for some reason. We had already booked as well! "

"This holiday was truly paradise. I have nothing to complain about; the only thing that upset me had to return home. The island was so clean and the workers work hard every minute of the day to keep it spotless. The food was delicious, a huge variety every lunch time and evening, such a healthy choice to choose from. The restaurant staff and bar staff were brilliant, they made the holiday fantastic, so friendly and a pleasure to be around (Benny, Idris, shura, shazam, moosa and Ali the best room keeper ever). I would recommend this island to everyone and am planning (dreaming, a ha ha) to go back Christmas time or early next year. 100% FAB. "

"The Island itself was absolutely beautiful and has possibly one of the best diving experiences available at a very reasonable price. It is one of the smaller Islands in the Maldives so was ideal for relaxation. The Maldivian staff were brilliant, very polite and friendly. The accommodation we stayed in was a beach bungalow which was basic but all you needed and very clean. A room boy came round to clean daily and then every night your bed sheets were laid out in a different design. The evening entertainment was the downside to the holiday, the hotel was Italian run and very much geared towards the Italians entertainment wise. I guess if you liked sketches like those you would expect in Benny Hill you were alright. However the bar area was such that you mingled and it gave you the chance to meet people and if you got in with the right crowd the entertainment became just a noise in the background. It does have to be said that the Maldivian staff did the entertainment on one night which was a traditional night and very interesting to watch. The food was fantastic, and plenty of choice even for a fussy vegetarian like me. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for relaxation and who really doesn't care about evening entertainment."

"The island and the local staff could not be faulted nevertheless after having visited the Maldives on four previous occasions this sadly was VERY dissapointing. The personal service in the dining room was disgracful if you wanted coffee it was self service, if you required a glass of wine again self service out of a box! There were too many ridiculous rules and regulations I felt I was at school! There were many times that I had to make do with pizza from the coffee shop because EVERYTHING being served had meat or fish in it! Although one of the island staff (Neva) did her best to try to arrange a vegetarian meal this was just not followed up and I gave up in the end. The 'entertainment' staff were all over you IF you were either Italian, German, or French it was so embarrassingly obvious as they could flout the rules and do whatever they liked. I have never had cause to make a compaint before about a holiday as i accept things sometimes go wrong but i will NEVER return to this island again even if it was free!!"

"Arrived on the 26 November '06, to a warm but wet Maayafushi. The welcome meeting occured well before our baggage arrived. From the very beginning most of us had great difficulty grasping what was being told us. The main language spoken by our host is Italian with a splattering of German and some broken English. But, ofcourse, that wasn't going to cause any problems? No that would be the food situation. The meals were predominantly self-service made up of pasta dishes and curries with fish and meat courses. The food was at best mediocre and always the same. Dinning was a gas. You quickly learnt how to 'jump' the queue, or you'd be stood there for ages. The island can be walked around in about 15 minutes, and this is quite leisurely. You could also swim round it in about half an hour. The water although warm, wasn't as clear as we'd been lead to believe. The beaches a mix of sand and fine coral can make for sore feet! Just off the landing jetty, there is a large bore pipe raised from the water, and every so often sand and broken coral spews from it. There is a team of staff pre-occupied in barrowing sand and coral from one place to another, there being a continuous loss of beach. During the day, if not on a diving or snorkling trip, there' very little to do. Evening meals are served between 2030 and 2200hrs, and the entertainment, which is dreadful, begins at 2230hrs. Oh yes, the animation team uses mealtimes to pester holiday makers to sign up for trips off! just what you need when you're stuffing ones face. Over-all the island is very pretty. The staff are polite but not overly friendly and the islands only shop sells goods at greatly inflated prices + 5%. And finally, its an Italian island for Italians with some Germans and even less Brits. Go back, not to this Island but the Maldives some-where else, that might be a possibility?"

Honeymoon Heaven

"We chose Maayafushi for our September honeymoon because it seemed to be such a simple resort. We didn't want to travel half way across the world to see entertainment arcades, or sports complexes, or discos etc that we could have found much closer to home. We wanted to go somewhere that would allow us to relax and enjoy each others company -and Maayafushi totally lived up to our expectations. We enjoyed the food, and even though I'm vegetarian I ate a different meal each evening. We spent our days lazing on the beach, with the odd stint of snorkelling or kayakking when we could muster up enough energy. But if you want to do more, there are planty of diving options and day trips (though you have to pay extra for those). There is a simple little sand-floored coffee shop for snacks and drinks between meals, and the bar is at its busiest (though never crowded) just before dinner, with people watching the sunset and sipping cocktails. We chose to stay in a deluxe villa, which at first sight we were a little disappointed with as they're all set in the middle of the island, and not on the beach. However, you have far more privacy and space in the deluxe villas than the villas located facing onto the beach, and you have your own private walled garden, which offers a nice retreat. Also the shower area (outdoor showering only!) is much larger and feels more decadent than in the smaller villas! In any case, the island is so tiny that the beach is never more than a few metres away. I have to say that despite the size of the island, it never felt crowded when we were there. We had hoped to be able to upgrade to a water bungalow once we arrived at the island, but in fact we decided that we preferred the deluxe garden villas, as they're more secluded and spacious. The water bungalows are also located on the windier side of the island, and the water is quite rough around them (at the time of year we were there, in any case), so we couldn't imagine swimming around the bunaglows. The island is as beautful as you'd hope it would be - and the view from every angle is simple and stunning - the vast ocean dotted with tiny palm fringed islands. The only slight drawbacks with the resort are that you have to sit with the same people for your entire holiday at every mealtime (this is fine if you get on well with your chosen co-diners, but you might be unlucky and have to spend the rest of the holiday trying to time your meals to avoid them!), and if you want a quiet drink in the bar after dinner you'll have to endure the "entertainment". We actually found it so bad that it became an unintentional highlight of the holiday! The international cabaret is a real treat - the mind boggles at how they invented some of their acts...! Look out for Luca playing Manuel like a guitar. All of the staff are friendly and helpful, yet unobtrusive. Everyone gets to know Idris, the bartender, who will delight you with his cynical humour and "barman's special" cocktails. All in all Maayafushi a very simple, laid back, chilled out island with its own character - we loved it and would love to return!"

"We went to Maayafushi on our honeymoon booked through Thomas Cook (for honeymooners they arrange for a fruit basket and wine to be in your room and a romantic candlelit meal on the beach). I researched other islands before making the booking and found Maayafushi to fit the type of place we were looking for to go on our honeymoon and we were not disappointed. The flight out there with Monarch Airlines was a little strange going from Gatwick via Manchester and then to Malé airport (and via Manchester again on our return). But flying into Malé was fabulous and the runway is literally a runway in the sea. From the airport we got the seaplane to Maayafushi and it was a great trip, took about 20 mins (I think?!) and have your camcorder and cameras ready for some great shots of other islands as you fly over and of the runway at Malé airport. When we landed at Maayafushi we were greeted by Enrico (a member of the islands 'Animation Team') and we were amazed at how beautiful the island looked and how clear and turquoise the sea was. Our bags were loaded off the plane and taken to the reception area and we went into the bar/lounge area for an induction chat about what the island had to offer and rules of the island (e.g. swimwear is not to be worn in the bar area or restaurant etc). We had a beach bungalow, which was great and had the essentials you needed (wardrobe with hangers, a safe – $2 a day hire for the key for it, dressing table, mini bar, hairdryer, telephone etc). Remember to have some change for a tip to the guys who take your suitcases to the rooms and at the end of your stay another tip when they take your bags back to the reception area. We had a part open bathroom with an enormous palm tree in it and open shower area. Watch out though as on our trip a branch fell off the tree and came crashing down into the shower area - it gave us some excitement for a while and luckily we weren't showering at that time. However I think this was rare as generally the staff did go round cutting branches off the trees that looked like they would fall (you can watch them climbing barefooted up the trees with a machete!). We counted 18 steps from our front door and right into the sea. You are allocated two sun loungers, which you can drag anywhere you like but we stayed mostly near our bungalow as it was quite isolated there anyway. Also, you are given free beach towels at the reception, which you can change regularly for clean ones during your stay. The beach was swept regularly of any fallen leaves etc and the whole island was very clean and tidy. Our room was tidied and cleaned twice a day and our bed sheets were folded into a different pattern each day. On our last night our bed sheets were folded into a fancy design with lots of flower petals all over. It was beautiful and we didn’t want to ruin it and would have quite gladly slept on the floor that night! Our table in the restaurant was dressed with flowers on the last night of our leaving too. The bungalows seemed to be on the outskirts of the island, amongst trees, and the centre of the island was a kind of garden area with a pond and trees, plants etc. It was really pretty. The beach bungalows have a little patio with table and chairs. The food was fantastic and so delicious. Breakfast was from 8 till 10am and consisted of pastries, toast, sausages, fruit, omelettes (made right in front of you with a choice of toppings), cereal, fruit juice etc. Lunch was from 1 till 2.30pm and was quite varied with a buffet or a sort of buffet just to get your starters and then your waiter (who is allocated to your table) will bring you out a main course of fish or lamb/chicken and vegetables etc. We leant not too eat too much for the starter to leave room for the main course!! And dinner was from 8.30 till 10pm and this was the same structure as the lunch. It would either be a full buffet, or a sort of buffet for the starters and then the waiter would bring out a main course. The island was of an Italian influence and therefore the food did tend to follow an Italian theme, with risottos, pizzas, pastas etc, but they did have curry each night, soup and vegetables. One night a week there is an Italian night, which had a buffet of Italian food (yum!), a Maldivian night, with only Maldivian food (currys, samosas etc was delicious!) and also a BBQ night of fresh fish and chicken (with a buffet). In between the above times at the restaurant you could get food from the café, such as pizzas, cake etc too. At the restaurant you are seated with others on their holiday. We were seated with some fantastic people (“hi” to you too entry "The Perfect Honeymoon" 22 Aug 2006: A TripAdvisor Member, Leicester) and you have the same table for your entire stay. Our waiter was Suroor and he was brilliant, friendly, good fun and taught us various origami techniques with our table napkins! The island has various facilities. They have a dive centre, which was great. My husband did his PADI discovery dive with them and he had an amazing time and said they were really professional and thorough. My husband did a one to one dive with an instructor and saw sharks and whole host of different fish that can be seen just out of the drop in the reef area. They have a night (I think it is on Mondays) were the dive team present you your diving certificate. There is a shop on Maayafushi, which isn’t very cheap, but you can get all your souvenirs from here, buy sarongs, essentials like shampoo and sun tan lotions, some chocolate bars and crisps, also postcards and stamps (there is a little post box outside the shop). They have an internet area, but we didn’t use this as it was expensive to use – but actually didn’t want to as we liked the isolation from the hustle and bustle back home. Although the staff will send an email for you (if you write it out) for a lesser fee. There is also a little library of books for you to read during your stay. They do massages (I had one and it was wonderful), with oils and relaxation music. There is also a resident GP should you have any problems (his opening times are on his door – adjacent to the bar area). I did pay him a visit after getting really bad prickly heat, which was getting worse and spreading by the day despite any creams I was putting on it. He was an Italian doctor and had fun trying to tell him what was wrong, but we got there in the end and he gave me some different cream and tablets for it (at no charge), which cleared it all up within a couple of days. I noticed the GP generally patches up any cuts people have incurred from snorkelling over the coral. There is a bar/lounge area (floor covered in sand – so little need for shoes) where the staff are great and learn your ‘usual’ and bring it over to you when you haven’t even ordered it yet! Each morning my husband and I would go to the lounge and after only a day or two Benny the waiter would bring us over a cup of tea and pineapple juice without us even asking! In the evening, Idrish the waiter would bring us a mango juice or a cup of tea (there is alcohol, but we don’t drink). The staff were brilliant, happy, eager to help and so friendly. You can get water for free as part of the all inclusive deal (on a per glass basis), however if you want to buy a 1.5 litre bottle to take to your room or have with you on the beach you need to buy it for $3 per bottle. There is a café area where you can go into with your swimwear on and have snacks and drinks. Jay (another waiter) was good fun. There is a tv and video in the café area, but due to the Italian influence the tv is always set to a Italian news channel. Behind the café is a table tennis, which we did play on and had some fun with. There are two volleyball courts. The one behind the café is mostly used by the staff (usually the waiters) who play a game from 6pm until 7.30pm) and its really great to watch. They are REALLY good! Once a week there is a staff versus holidaymakers game in the other volleyball court on the beach. They can arrange for anyone to have a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach. If you want extra food that is aside from the food provided in the restaurants buffet, such as a BBQ main course, or lobster and fish etc, they do this at an extra fee. We had the BBQ and it was delicious and worth the extra money. It was beautiful though. We were alone on the beach with the waves around us, the clear star lit sky with the moon shining and just us two, and Suroor our waiter (who did leave us alone but checked on us now and then) was on hand to bring us our food and anything we needed. There is a Beach Point where you can do canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing etc. We did the canoeing, and went round the island which was really good fun. There was an ‘Animation Team’ allocated to the island who would oversee any events, the islands facilities, trips and entertainment. For a fee, there are snorkelling trips, diving trips, morning and night fishing and trips to inhabited islands. We went on the latter – remember to take your money with you as they like to take you to the souvenir shops and you do a lot of haggling in them. As a rule we were told that they automatically mark up the price of the items by 50% so to haggle them down as much as possible, although you can only do this on the inhabited islands so don’t start haggling in Maayafushi’s shop! On the island we were met by the villagers who gave us coconut milk to drink out of fresh coconuts and given a tour of the island. It was a fishing island and we got to see the dhoni’s, the mosques, the schools, and taken around the shops. Maayafushi island, the inhabitied islands and Male all trade in US Dollars so take this as your currency. The evening entertainment was often a little bizarre, although I think due to the language and culture differences, the humour was a little lost on us at times. But we enjoyed it for what it was. There would be quiz nights, raffles, and games and cabarets, and Luca on the guitar (he was fantastic on the guitar) with his mispronunciation of English words when singing. On a Monday night the guests have an opportunity to go on the stage with Luca and sing and play the guitar with him, which my husband and one of our friends did. You need to arrange this a day or two before, to have rehearsals with Luca. We even bought one of Luca’s CD’s! Each evening my husband and I would go and watch the sunset and it was beautiful. And once we also woke early to catch the sunrise too. There are fruit bats on the island and are amazing to see flying about and hanging upside down in trees. There are crows, lots of crabs, a family of herons, and lizards etc. The sea is so clear that you can see the fish really well and lots of little black tip reef sharks swim in the shallows too. Near to our section of the beach of the reef there was an anemone with a family of clown fish in. The sea is alive with an abundance of sea life and it is really worth doing lots of snorkelling – you get to see all sorts. We also took disposable underwater cameras with us and we got some really good pictures (the camera’s are also sold in the Maayafushi’s shop). The only tips we gave were for the guys who carried our luggage and the waiters and the guys who cleaned our room, so make sure you have some change with you. You don’t need to actually pay for anything at the resort as you go along, but will need to sign for it and you pay the bill at the end of your stay (the accept cash and credit cards). We were so sad to leave. In fact, really emotional! The staff were great, the friends we made were great, the facilities were really good, the island was beautiful. We couldn’t cope with the thought of leaving and never going back again, so we decided that for an anniversary we shall definitely be making a return visit!"

"Our stay at Maayafushi was amazing, the perfect honeymoon. We stayed in a beach bungalow which was comfortable and really clean (cleaned everyday and we had our sheet turned down (and folded into nice patterns) every night. The palm tree in the bathroom was interesting, though watch out for those ants at night! There weren't any mosquitoes whatsoever, but I did get a couple of ant bites - but after that we were on to them! The bungalow was 10 feet from the sea, which was so clear! The room comes with 2 sun loungers which we were able to drag to other areas of the island if we wanted. Our stretch of beach was used by us and 4 other couples, so there was loads of room and often felt like our own private paradise. All the staff were really friendly,polite and helpful, especially bar waiter Idrish, Jay in coffee shop (would help you out if you were losing at a game of cards!) and Suroor our waiter. At meal times we sat at a table with 3 other British couples, which we found to be great as we were with really nice people (hi all). Personally, we thought the food was brilliant - there was lots of choice: curry, pasta, risotto, soup, all as buffet starters, and then meat and fish and vegetables followed by buffet desserts (profiteroles were the best!). There was also a barbecue night, Italian night and Maldivian night once a week (we saved ourselves for this all day as the curries and samosas etc were lovely). Breakfast is fruit, pastries, sandwiches, sausages, toast and omelettes made to order in front of you. We found the entertainment to be great - admittedly we didn't go on any trips, but the watersports centre had lots of good activities for you to use. There are regular snorkelling trips, nightfishing trips, and a trip to a local fisherman island - women need clothes that will cover shoulders to below knees for this. Nightly there was Luca on electric guitar and singing - really entertaining, after the first week you get over the mispronunciation of all the English words! The shows/activities in the evening were still entertaining, as it gave us something to have a laugh about if nothing else! Look out for 'The Hoff' as Enrico, head of the animation team, who looks a lot like a certain Baywatch star. Our Advice: Don't be put off by the prospect of a seaplane - it was fun, and much better than a normal flight! You don't need travel adapters. Make sure you have enough cash for tips (bags being carried, cleaner etc), everything else you can put on your room - watch out in the shop as there is a service charge on everything. The massages are great! If you're going to snorkel (which is great as the water is soooo clear and you can see lots of pretty fishes), I'd take your own rather than hire - $45 for 12 days. Don't be lazy like us and take drinks out of mini - bar and pay , you're only ever a 30 second walk away from the bar/coffeeshop where it's free! Make sure you see the staff playing their nightly volleyball game (around 6pm behind coffee shop) - it will blow you away, and if you feel game enough, play them at the weekly staff v. guests match. Drinks after midnight you have to pay for. You don't need long trousers etc as it says in many brochures, we didn't wear shoes for 2 weeks, it's quite informal (though make sure you don't go into bar/restaurant in just your swimwear). After the best 2 weeks, we would definitely return to Maayafushi."

"Have just returned from two weeks at the Maayafushi Resort, first day back at work today!! The holiday was perfect, just what we wanted. The Island is small, takes about 10-15 mins to walk round and is surrounded by white sand and turquoise sea. The marine life is plentiful and very varied and although the diving and snorkelling is absolutely fantastic, you don't have to get your feet wet to see some of this .... fish, sharks, rays etc could be seen regularly, just from the shore!!! We found the food to be very good, there was fresh fish on offer every day and as the Island is Italian owned, there was also an abundance of Italian dishes, different pasta and pizza etc, also fantastic deserts!! They also hold BBQ's once a week, and have Maldivian night with traditional dishes to try out. There is also plenty of salad and fresh fruit too. The island is kept meticulously clean, leaves and debris are swept up daily and the room staff are very efficient and come into your room twice a day. I was also pleased to read on previous reviews, that people noted the lack of mosquito's and can now confirm that we have returned without a single bite!! In fact, we did not see any of these flying devil's whilst we were there at all!! All the staff are very friendly and helpful and the entertainment team make sure you are well looked after. There are plenty of trips on offer, diving, snorkelling, fishing, shopping etc but these are not pushed onto you and if all you want to do is chill out and lie on your sunbed, that is fine with them. All in all, I would definately say this is the best holiday we have been on so far, though it probably not to be reccommended to those with children or for those who are easily bored as there is not really much to do there, but for people like us who have mega-busy lives back at home, two weeks of doing nothing much, was absolute bliss!!! I would reccomend this Island to couples and romantics and would definately consider a return visit!! Thanks for a great holiday Maayafushi ..... Hi to Corrinna, Erica, Luca, Aldo, Uli, Naz, Zaheen & Suhoor.... keep up the good work guys!! Jan & Paul."
