We had a great stay! The staff was wonderful, always friendly and available to satisfy every request. Specially since our luggage never arrived so they did everything possible to make our stay more pleasant. I can honestly say that with the all-inclusive plan you don't need anything else. The drinks and the food are great. The buffet at the main restaurant is very good and always varying. If you have any special request the chefs will happily prepare it for you. We stayed at an over-water villa, which was like having your private island, it was always clean and the view is breath-taking.
Thank you for making our holidays so special and memorable!!

We had an unbelieveable stay here for our honeymoon. From the minute we arrived to the day we left we just loved every minute if it. Fabulous location and absolutely amazing staff who could not do enough for us. Room was perfect and the food was of a very high quality. Thank you so much for everything!!

We visited at the beginning of May for 10 nights, six nights in a beach villa and four in a water villa. This resort is exceptional in many respects, beautiful white sandy beach, crystal clear waters, very well maintained gardens, great food and great staff.

The rooms are spacious and spotless, the room boys came twice a day and during their evening visit always left a floral display and models of sea creatures made out of towels on the bed, very clever!
Our beach villa was 310 and had thick, lush greenery surrounding it within a few steps of the beautiful beach and sea. Due to the seasonal sea currents, the beach in front of some of the sunset pool and sunset beach villas had been washed away which is a shame as they are more expensive. The water villas are the same set up as the beach just on water, it was lovely to be able to get in to the sea straight from the deck, we would probably stick to a beach villa if we went back as the beach was so nice.

The House reef was good but like so many of the islands in recent years has deteriorated so whilst its possible to see lots of different sea life, much of the coral is dead. We have been to the Maldives many times and have noticed this over the last 3-4 years.

The food served in the main restaurant was excellent, lots of different cuisines served daily, the staff and chefs in the restaurant work really hard to please every guest and are really helpful, didn't have a bad dish the whole time we were there. All the staff across the island were great, many thanks to the guys who work at the Thari bar, great cocktails!
Special thanks go to Ihsan Saeed for being on hand throughout our stay and for the football chats :) and also to Mr Ashook, the Housekeeping and Gardens manager for taking the time out of his busy day to take us on a tour of the staff facilities (I'd asked about towel drying in such a hot place during a conversation at the drinks reception with staff....) - really interesting to see how the Island operates behind the scenes.

The only slight downside to this resort is that there is a lot of travelling.... an hour long internal flight when you land in Male and then 10-15 minutes speedboat to the island after the internal flight, there was a lot of hanging around for the internal flight and then waiting for the speedboat, although it is worth it when you get there!

Overall, an amazing island with amazing staff - would highly recommend.

Room Tip: If travelling April - May, beaches villlas are better as the beach for sunset villas had washed away.

Dear Beefyfox,

Marhaba! Greetings from Amari Havodda Maldives!

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a detailed review of your holiday with us. It is indeed a pleasure to read that we have been able to make your holiday memorable in every aspect especially with the array of food we offer, the location in itself, and not failing to mention the service of our team members which is no doubt our main asset.

Your kind sentiments have been passed on to Ihsan - Our Team Leader, the Team at the Thari Bar and the rest of the team members who were thrilled of having been able to serve you at their best.

While thanking you for sharing your holiday experience, we look forward to welcome you as our return guests in the near future.

Warm Regards,

Staffs are very nice, food is good and it is a great snorkeling place around the island. Dolphin tour is recommended and we saw them at the very last moment when our boat was getting back to hotel! So lucky we are.

For any request you place before the trip, you better tell the front desk when you check-in again.

Room Tip: Dental kit and slippers are available upon request, plenty of space for drying the clothes (by sunshine!)

This was our 14th visit to the Maldives and we had a wonderful 10 days. We stayed in a standard beach villa room 326 located on the sunrise side, beautiful beach, easy access to the sea, close to the water sports and service jetty, but not too close to intrude on your tranquility. 5 minute walk to pool, bar and restaurant. Good food for most meals and a special thank you to my doughnut chef who was kind enough to bring me a special treat each morning for breakfast, he also made good chilli omelettes. Exceptional surf and turf mixed grill for 2 at the Ember Grill.
All the staff, including chefs, waiters, barmen, guest relations and Christophe are a credit to the resort. Thank you for making our time with you special and memorable, we hope to return sometime.
