This restort/island is really a true little paradise on earth. We had our honeymoon at Constance Halaveli and had an amazing stay. Everything is really from exceptional level. This place really thought every little detail through.

The bar had a wide variety of drinks (cocktails to liquors) and tasty and surprising snacks. The restaurant had great dishes available and has a romantic setting. All staff from cleaning ladies to waiters over managers were really helpful and going the extra mile for their guests. The service at Halaveli is really one of a kind.
The over-water villa's are very recommended for honeymoons. They were very spacious and offer a king size bed with nice linen. Next to a cosy sitting area with comfortable sofa's, it had a very nice entertainment system: a Mac Mini with big flat screen loaded with lot's (really a lot) of international movies (Hollywood, European, Bollywood, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, ...). Next to the usual Nespresso machine they had a mini bar had a great choice of drinks and candy. And off course an airco which kept the villa cool. Room service came as a default option and was really fast.
The large patio was stunning too. Nice wooden floors with quality lounge chairs and a set for outdoor dining. It also had a spacious infinity private pool on deck. And with a little chair into the Indian Ocean, you could just jump into the water. Other things like an umbrella, towels, bath robes, ... were also thought of. The arrangement of the villas is done precisely so that it provides the privacy one would search on this kind of holiday.

And then the bathroom ... which was almost half of the villa. A very nice bath tub with Ocean-view. The glass panels just slide away, so you could have the feeling you are bathing right in the middle of the ocean. Both shower and toilet also have a water view to see fishes passing by.

Everything on the island from villas to bar was very clean and well maintained.

Needless to say ... I would book this place instantly for my honeymoon again!

Room tip: For a honeymoon go for an over-water-villa!

Don't hesitate, just book. This property will exceed your expectations.

PROS
- Staff were amazingly attentive and delivered personalised service (from day one they knew your names at all outlets across the property!)
- Over water villas with plunge pool are just sublime - modern Island vibes, spotlessly clean, spacious, super comfortable
- Private plunge pools are essential not only for privacy but convenience as the main pool is over 1km away (15 minute casual walk) or you can call ahead for a buggy
- We had the all inclusive package and were not disappointed. Fantastic wine lists, spirits and overall beverage options. Sunset drinks at Jing Bar is arguably one of the best places in the world for sundowners. Jing, the fine dining outlet was inventive fusion done impeccably well. For feet in the sand, waves crashing soundscape head to beach side restaurant Meeru, the grill house. Everything we had was amazingly fresh, delicious and had laid back luxury vibes. Jahaz was fantastic for breakfast and lunch. Highly recommend the freshly caught seared Tuna steaks for lunch as they were
- The island itself is picture perfect - just like a postcard!

CONS
- There was some fairly intensive construction happening during our stay however we could not hear any of it in our villa, at any of the outlets or on the mainland. It did not have any negative impact on our stay. They were doing renovations indoors and repairing pools. The only downside was when you walked by that stretch of villas you could loud hear jack hammering.
- There are quite a lot of black tip reef sharks that are rather larger in size. This species typically attains a length of 1.6 m (5.2 ft). They generally harmless however they can give you quite a fright when you are snorkeling around the reef. Also there are large stingrays swimming around the reef. Important to note that we had no issues with either the shark or the stingrays as they would swim the opposite direction whenever we spotted them

SUMMARY
We have now stayed at Constance Moofushi and Constance Halaveli - while both stays were amazing, Halaveli is on a completely different level. Couldn't recommend it more highly and we will definitely be back!

After hours and hours of research and travel agent recommendations for our first trip to Maldives, we settled on Constance Halaveli. We could not have been more satisfied. The bungalows were immaculate, and each with an infinity pool. The beds were very soft, comfortable and very clean. We also liked how the bathroom area was like you own little spa, and on the opposite side and separated from the bedroom. You could go snorkeling next to your bungalow or swimming in the pool, then enter the villa directly to the bathroom.

The food was delicious and everyday there was a different theme for the buffet. Or if you aren't in the mood for a buffet, they do have a separate "upscale" restaurant, although it was a little overpriced in my opinion.

The spa was amazing. My wife and I tried a couples massage and it was one of the best massages I've ever had. Definitely would recommend it.

Although it technically is the rainy season, there is plenty of sunshine and activities to do.
Everyday there is a list of excursions for the guests to take part in. My wife and I tried scuba for the first time, and we absolutely loved it because our instructor was really friendly and passionate about it. We also did snorkeling with several other couples at the hotel. The water was not super clear, but the temperature was very comfortable.

Room tip: Water Villa views are better as the room number increases

We spend 8 nights here as a couple and it is paradise, just like you imagine Maldives to be.

Service - There is always different personalities among the employees, but in general the service level is top here.

The island - Perfect and just like you imagine Maldives

The over water Villa - This is the only reason we cant give this 5 stars. The resort although well maintained is not new anymore and it shows a little inside and outside the villa. Not a big deal, but still if you give this 5 star what would you give the brand new resorts with the same service level.

Value for money - Believe no matter where you go in the the maldives its gonna cost you and this place is no exception. Everything not included in the package cost a small fortune, at least when it comes to the activities (example: 1 hr jetski is USD 260)

Overall a fantastic stay and good value for money when comparing prices to others.

Highly recommendable!

Thank you everyone at Constance Halaveli

Unique and unforgettable experience for us. Everything was perfect, wonderful. Every where you look is beautiful : on earth and in the sea.
Service was perfect also : from the warm welcome of Helena, to the best food ever from the chef (he is not only a really good indian cooker but also a really nice person, so sad if you do not taste his cooking:) and the perfect cleaning made by Ali twice a day. Our dive master was a real pro, with whom we dived only two of us with a great and huge boat, discovering the wonderful diversity of fishes in Maldives. Sebastien is the best dive master I met since I dive (1999).
I recommend this hotel best ever for all its luxurious comfort and services. We were in a water villa with our private swimming pool, enjoying the sun rising and sun set, and also by night our bath illuminated with a blue light!
All the staff is more than helpful and I wish I can come back next year.
Thank you for this unforgettable experience
