We chose Maafushivaru for our honeymoon and it was the best holiday we have ever had! The island is very small, just as we wanted. The excursions are very well planned and thanks to Niv and the rest of the staff we got to see whale sharks, mantas ans dolphins! We also took the diving course and Chiara was fantastic,...

This is one of the smaller Maldivian islands and we found it to be intimate and luxurious. The beach villas are stunning with huge bedrooms and vaulted ceilings together with all the little luxuries you would hope for. Large private decked area off the bedroom accessed by double doors with sun loungers, comfy chairs and table and chairs. Direct access...

Choosing a hotel in the Maldives was no easy task, luckily Maafushivaru was recommended to us. Its one of the smaller hotels and yes, only one bar and one restaurant... the benefit being that you dont have to choose where you are going to eat! The food was amazing, varied and gorgeous... by the end of our time there, all...

Well what can I say! We returned from two weeks in Maaf just over a week ago and we had the most amazing holiday! This is our third time to the Maldives, firstly staying in Kuedu and last year in Olhivelhi but this place is by far the best, but we knew it would be from all the reviews. We...

If you are interested in seeing marine life at its best , then this is the place to go. There are so many different excursions to go on and they are really good value for money, they go out of their way to make sure the day is successful, we saw whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, turtles and much more....

We have chose Maafushivaru because it's size. We wanted to go somewhere to relax and unwind from a year long planning of our wedding. And also away from all the crowd.

My partner and I have just return from a 10 night holiday at Maafushivaru after having a wonderful time. This is our 8th resort and it suited us perfectly - small, relaxed, great house reef and excellent service. The seaplane transfer from Male was seemless with virtually no wait which meant we arrived at the resort mid morning. A swift...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Reached by a picturesque flight over the mysterious atolls of the Maldives, Maafushivaru is a quiet island knitted with lush flora surrounded by pure white sandy beaches and incredible turquoise lagoon. Next to the resort is the tiny desert island of Lonubo, exclusive to Maafushivaru guests. A visit to this beautiful island is a must. You can choose from daily visits for basking in the sun and snorkeling the beautiful reef, or ultimately book to stay overnight, an island just for you and your beloved, even if only for a night. Slumber at your choice of three distinct villas. Beach Villas are sited on postcard perfect beaches whilst the Water Villas are built on stilts over the Indian Ocean providing sunset and sunrise vistas that will be forever etched in your memory. For a fun filled holiday, the Pool Villa is the right pick for families or friends travelling together, featuring two separate villas with a shared pool. Summon the bon vivant inside of you with the delectable fare. Cuisine Gallery showcases a potpourri of dishes from all over the world. While 135° East is your key for an authentic Japanese cuisine displaying the art of teppanyaki and the hibachi steakhouse. Sip favourite sunset cocktails at Water Bar with eclectic evening entertainment ranging from Maldivian evenings, to laser shows and disco nights under the starlit sky. Located on the water’s edge, instill a sense of calm and quietude at the Spa with signature product line Voya focusing on healing therapies and rituals. Explore rich underwater life on the house reefs of Maafushivaru and Lonubo, where fish teem and corals bloom colourfully. Dive with whale sharks and mantas in famed spots down south. Discover the epitome of Maldives – Maafushivaru. ... more   less
