Myself and my partner went to Olhuveli at the beginning of October and we picked the perfect week, as apparently for the whole month of Sept there had been showers there. We chose Maldives as we wanted a relaxing tranqil holiday after a hectic year and that's exactly what we got - total relaxation. From the moment we got on...

We spent two glorious weeks in Olhuveli for a belated honeymoon. It excelled our expectations in every way and I honestly can't think of anything negative to say about the island or the staff.

We thought the Hotel Olhuveli was a wonderful hotel. The food was great, the staff extremely friendly and our room was lovely (we went for one of the cheaper villas and didn't regret it). We went on one of the snorkling trips but, in all honesty, the house reef was as good if not better.
