We chose this island because of the lack of water bungalows, big spas, & swimming pool, so a much more low key relaxed atmosphere. The island is small with a lot of green jungley planting through the interior along the walkways which provide good shade. The house reef is good - some bleaching, but still a good number of fish...

This was our 4th trip to the Maldives, which we love for its marine life, reefs and diving opportunities and quiet beach life. Makanudu was meant to be a 4 star resort with a good house reef (according to Tropic Breeze, who we booked with). In fact it is barely a 3 star and the coral in the house reef...

Peaceful dessert island feeling with good house reef & food. Lots of different fish remain despite last year's coral whitening that affected the Maldives. Who wants a pool with the Indian Ocean! All staff are so helpful. I hope they keep their island retreat & don't go pool with extra restaurants option.

Wonderful time with wonderful people. It was our 23th trip to Makunudu. All the time we can see changes. In the meantime we meet friends which like the island also to see again. It is a paradise for long snorkeling trips.
