Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great facilities. Super friendly staff. Excellent diving. Great food. Spa and gym both excellent. Expensive and all the published prices on the app do not include taxes which make a big difference to the bill!

Hotel's Favourite
The island is small, intimate, and gorgeous: exactly what we were looking for! The lagoon and the house reef are breathtaking! The Water Villas and Water villas with private pool are exceptional! Whether you are on the lagoon side or the ocean side, it is just so beautiful. One benefit of the ocean side is that you can go down directly from your terrace and go snorkeling at the house reef. If you want to see the sunset from your villa, only the last 2 villas with private pool will have the right view (that was the case in March). Nova is our first in the Maldives so we don’t have any comparable, but we heard some guests that went to different islands in the Maldives, and they said Nova is one of the most beautiful they have visited, so it should be true ;) The staff is lovely, helpful, and always smiling! Sometimes service can be slow but who cares, you’re in vacations on a paradise island so I guess it's not a big deal! The weather is totally unpredictable believe me! We started to follow weather forecast a week before our arrival. According to Apple Weather and the Maldives meteorological website, we should have had a majority of rain. And guess what! We had 90% sunshine with blue sky, some clouds 10% of the time and it rained only 2 times for 7 days (one time for maybe 1-2 hours and the other time for only 30 minutes, that’s it)! It is a tropical weather, so it changes quickly. During dry season, I guess you will have lot of sun most of the time anyhow. But we have lots of wind at the end of our stay. This can be awesome if you intend to do wakeboard or other water sports, but it is quite annoying for snorkeling as the current becomes stronger with lots of waves. At night, there are sometimes bioluminescent planktons on the beach between the SPA and the Jetty as soon as it gets dark. We didn’t see a lot of them but enough to be amazed by this phenomenon. We ate at Soul Kitchen every day and it was great! Congratulations to Nova for the variety of dishes! For lunch and dinner, we had Maldivian food, Arabic food, Latino food, European food, and much more. There is a Wok stand always available if you like it! There is fresh fish regularly (tuna and grilled octopus are delicious)! There are delicious tropical fruits such as dragon fruit and papaya! For breakfast: French toasts, crepes, pancakes, pastries, eggs (omelet, sunny side, scramble), meat, porridge, yoghurt, fruits... Ok, I can understand some people criticizing the food if it is something that you have a very high expectation. But even if it is not a Michelin-star cuisine, everything is still very tasty! The activities are just EXCEPTIONAL! For Manta and Whale Shark Quests, it is not guaranteed to see them as they are wild creatures, and it depends on the weather and on luck! I recommend you book your activities the day you arrive at the hotel to be sure to have a seat. There are planning of activities you can check on the website or on the Nova app. Whale Shark Quest: The activity is 3 hour-long. But it takes 1h15 to get to the search area by boat and 1h15 to get back to Nova. So, we only had 30/40 minutes on site to try to find a whale shark and go snorkeling nearby. There are many boats and people from different locations that come to see it too so it is crowded. However, I need to say that it is really a pure magic moment to see a whale shark in real life! Manta Quest: The activity is also 3 hour-long. But the search areas are much closer (25/30 min from Nova) which leaves you much more time for snorkeling. We were very lucky to come across 4 manta rays. Be aware that you will have to swim a lot and quickly in open ocean, and sometimes against the current so it can be exhausting! If you’re not a good swimmer or if you’re not very comfortable, feel free to ask for a life jacket! It would be much easier to snorkel, and you will have much more fun focusing on the mantas! Discover Scuba Diving: First time diving for me! The experience was fabulous with a very educational and very attentive instructor. The activity is composed of 3 phases: 1/ the instructor will explain you how to dive and how to use the equipment 2/ You will go into the lagoon to practice some exercises until you are comfortable with the equipment 3/ you will dive at about 10 meter-depth and enjoy the marine life for about 45 minutes. The snorkeling is already exceptional at Nova’s house reef, but diving brings the experience to a next level! I saw a nurse shark, 2 big tunas, tons of different fishes and beautiful colorful corals. House reef and snorkeling at Nova: I had high expectations for snorkeling. And I have not been disappointed ! The house reef is amazing and went beyond my expectations. The most active part is close to the jetty but there are also a lot to see near the water villas! There are an incredible number of fishes and some blacktip sharks around. There are also resident turtles, but it can be difficult to spot them. It will depend on your luck. After trying couple of times, we finally saw one at the jetty and it was awesome! Some people managed to see many turtles many times during their stay. Try at different times of the day between the Jetty and the SPA to maximize your chance! There are also stingrays and if you’re lucky enough, you can watch them swimming along the house reef while eating at the same time which is a spectacular show! In conclusion: Nova is a marvelous island, a gorgeous lagoon, a breathtaking house reef, very nice staff, amazing activities, and great food. I guess we can call it a paradise! One last tip: take a GoPro or alike to take videos or pictures in the water :)

Dear Soul Family ! Thanks again for the great stay and the satisfactory solution of the accommodation problem for both sides. Thank you Mari and Evi !!! We've been to some Maldives Islands before, but we haven't had that kindness and courtesy, as well as such fantastic service. The beach villas are just as beautiful. The cuisine and the meals offered are excellent. The food at Flames great ! The All Inclusive Package also great ! I don't know how to spell the names correctly, but the restaurant team (Sheistag, Naasi and everyone else) as well as the team of the Soul Bar and the Wink Bar - just great ! We hope that it is possible for us to come back next year ! All the best and hope to see you soon ! Bernhard und Gabriele from Austria, Vienna

We visited Nova in February 2024; our family used three beach bungalows next to each other. The bungalows were nice with outdoor daybed and chairs and perfect privacy. Nice house reef, friendly staff, good variety of restaurants and excellent food; selection of wine by the glass could be better, live music at the bars in the evening as well. We can recommend the resort with its good relationship value for money.

The accommodation was immaculately clean, comfortable and spacious (we are a family of 5 with 3 kids under 10 and shared a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom beach villa). The vegetation is beautifully maintained, lush and dense and offered great privacy between villas. There were always plenty of available sun loungers and bean bags despite the hotel being ‘full’ - in fact it seemed almost empty. From senior management to general maintenance, the staff are the most attentive and friendly folk you will ever likely meet. They always go above and beyond - Evi is actually worth his weight in gold! Our children kept commenting “everyone is so nice” ☺️ Having read mixed reviews about the catering before departing, I can confidently confirm the food variety and quality is nothing short of excellent. We were on a full board basis and enjoyed every single meal in Soul Kitchen. Ali and his skilled team of chefs - including ‘Stir Fry King’ Hilka - had time to fulfil all our children’s special requests in addition to cooking for the other hotel guests. They even invited the kids to cook with them on three occasions. We have visited the Maldives 5 times and Nova/the South Ari Atoll offers the most varied and abundant marine life we have encountered. We swam with a whale shark, about 20 manta rays cyclone feeding, reef sharks, sting rays, dolphins, turtles and thousands of fish - some in very large shoals. The hotel offers a stunning and easily accessible house reef, pristine water clarity and serene turquoise lagoon. Special mention to Eddie, Ismail, Wande and the team at Aquaholics who gave us memories we will never forget 🙏🏼 thank you 🙏🏼 and resident marine biologist Toby whose extensive knowledge of the majestic sea giants has totally captivated and inspired our 3 budding marine biologists! A highlight for us was the illuminated jetty where we spent hours watching huge rays and nurse sharks after supper. We would also recommend the sunset fishing trip and private speedboat charter to swim with the larger marine life. We have never returned to a hotel but without doubt, will start saving our pennies to return to Nova as soon as we can, it is an absolute gem of a place. Beyond grateful to you all 🙏🏼 see you on the jetty next year🤞🏼x

We decided to have a four night stay at Nova Maldives for our honeymoon. This was one of the best decisions we have made. The staff were all super friendly and amazing. As soon as we reached the island, we felt like we had left the real world and could completely go into vacation mode. We stayed in the beach and the water villa for 2 nights each and both were awesome experiences. We 100% recommend Nova Maldives to anyone planning to a resort-like vacation.

We are prolific Maldives travellers, and our first visit to Nova was a lovely experience made all the more special by the wonderful service we received here. Every encounter with any member of staff was always pleasant and they are all a credit to the team. It is a gem of an island with beautiful beaches (not always the case with every island) and lovely vegetation. We stayed in a jacuzzi beach villa on the sunset side of the island. We particularly liked the fact that they were set back with vegetation in between each one affording a large degree of privacy. The outdoor daybed was great, and the sheltered patio area meant we could sit outside even if it rained. The buffet food is pretty good, and the opportunity to choose to eat at the a la carte restaurant some evenings made a very nice change. The wine choice is limited, but there is a decent Prosecco available. Both of the bars are great, and the whole island never seems crowded, even though it was over 80% occupied. Pros: Amazing staff. Lush vegetation. Good food and a choice of restaurants. Modern beach villas with pretty decor and great privacy. Very few mosquitoes. Excellent honeymoon treats. Diving pretty good. Cons: Limited wine choice. Although the reef is close, there is only one small area worth snorkelling. It seems to be the norm to take food waste out under cover of darkness, and dump it in the ocean. Occasionally, whilst star gazing at night, there was a pungent smell of burning plastic. I would definitely recommend this island, but not sure I would return before exploring other islands.
