Spent only three nights at The Residence and it exceeded all expectations. We were greeted at the airport where we were taken to the domestic terminal, given our boarding passes and got onto the next flight. Once arrived we were greeted again and taken to a speed boat. Cold refreshing towels and fresh watermelon drinks were provided as a welcome....

We stayed here for 10 nights in March 2017. Our water villa (#315) faced west so every night around 6pm we were treated to a fantastic sunset. I won't describe the villa since this can be seen on the website but it was large, very comfortable and very clean. In spite of the remote location the free wifi worked perfectly....

We had a good time at the Residence. This is one of the best locations in the Maldives and snorkelling with 4 turtles in view was a once in a life time experience. Having said that, this is an expensive experience and if you don't need the snorkelling I wouldn't necessarily recommend the Maldives or islands in general.

I planned this many months ago, when I was in desperate need of a complete break as a carer for two family members. The expectations helped me through the long difficult months before I actually travelled. This could have been a problem, as high expectations can sometimes lead to disappointment. Not so! I was not disappointed in any respect of...
