Beautiful place and nature. That Is the only thing about this resort. Service is awful, cleanliness is bad. Bed sheets were not changed for few days, bug mites were biting us. Called housekeeping few times in order to get things from them and had to wait ages until they brought what we needed. We mentioned all to the manager, she...

We booked Olhuveli last minute for a 10 day break over Christmas. We were delighted when we arrived. The room was simple but very nice and had great views over the lagoon. The food in the main restaurant was very good and with a great variety, as it was the Christmas period they had a different themed menu every day,...

This resort defines what Maldives is. We stayed in Maafushi Island first for 3 nights before we go here but the beauty of Olhuveli resort is really amazing. I will do 2 reviews of their water villa coz we stayed in 2 different rooms to experience it. Check in process: Terrible. Paying for over $XXXX for the type of service...

Note for the reader: my partner and I are experienced travelers and having plenty of benchmarks we know what qualifies for luxury both in terms of infrastructure and services Olhuveli regretfully is not as so far the worse of several other Maldivian escapes. 1. Location. The location has great potential, nice beaches and lots of overwater bungalows. An exceptional diving...

We booked the all inclusive package for our water villa sunset jacuzzi room. Worth every penny! Pretty lucky that our rooms are far at the end and facing the sunset. Thus we had a private beach all to ourselves where we spotted baby sharks while taking a swim there! We didnt go for any activities but we rented snorkeling gear...

Olhuveli is a place like the one you see on the pictures in the internet, and the only one that was "what you see is what you get" ( unfortunately I can not say the same thing for all the other places we visited for the 10 days we spent in Maldives! Special thanks to Katia from the front desk...

Our experience with Olhuveli did not start well, and we almost cancelled. When we got our booking confirmation, we saw in the fine print that there was a mandatory Christmas Eve gala dinner that would cost $300 USD/person. We were annoyed it wasn't disclosed before the confirmation, so chose to modify our reservation and check-in the following day instead. To...

This beach is 1 hour ahead of Male. So while booking need to be done based on that. We are not informed about the timezone while booking. Upon reaching the airport we were told to wait for the boat 1 hour. Thats really bad for the price we paid. Food is very expensive though there are no great dishes. Experienced...

The resort is situated on a house reef and is a delight for snorkellers and scuba divers. You'll see lots of sea turtles, black tip sharks, stingrays etc We spent 6 nights in the 'Water villa with Jacuzzi' at the resort. The villa was beautiful but it was not well maintained. We spent the first 2 days getting basic amenties...

“My suggestion: splurge on room with overwater bungalow and ditch full board meal options. We usually eat light/skip dinner. If I go again, I'll pack my own food as I don't really enjoy theirs or get boring after 3 days. ”
