My husband and I stayed for 10 nights from 6th March. This was our 7th visit to The Maldives, but first to Makunudu. Overall we had a great time and plan to return in the future. We could not fault the bar, waiting and reception staff. We did not use dive centre or spa so cannot comment on those. As...

This was a visit to celebrate a special birthday for my Wife. From the point of booking I was in contact with the Island. I am glad to say that all my requests were met. We arrived in Male in bad weather so if you are on a planned boat trip make sure you have sea sick pills. Fortunately we...

Amazing house reef. Amazing food. Great variety on the buffet. The room has a nice sunny back yard. No swimming pool (means no kids, just peace and quiet) The only big minus is the toilet.

5th time in Makunudu. Even the rain could not spoil our enjoyment. Friendly, cosy, informal. A place to come back to. 50 minutes from Male Airport and a world apart where you can feel a unique human being.

Overall, this island is beautiful. The opportunities for snorkelling and diving are great. We understand that this island is remote, but for the prices charged to stay here should mean high quality across the board. Food is amazing and staff friendly. Island very quiet - most of the time, but that depends on who the other guests are. Some areas...

“We were in 23 and 22 which was great for us and had great snorkelling outside”

“Villas differ only in location. The south side has sun all day, less shallow lagoon at low tide and softer sand than we found on the north.”
 of 5 bubbles ssxguy, 4 Dec 2016 | Read review
“4,5,6 or 7. Leftward side and more private.”

“Rooms 18-37 on the south side, most overlook the lagoon and arrivals jetty. The other side is quieter, 1-17.”
