After much researching of resorts in the Maldives, my husband and I decided to spend our honeymoon at Constance Halaveli. The island is not too far from Male (about a 20 minute seaplane ride) and while waiting for the seaplane we were able to use the Halaveli lounge which was a nice way to start our holiday. Arriving at the island we were greeted by friendly staff and were given early check in as soon as our villa was ready.
We stayed in a water villa and found it to be spacious and comfortable. We had a couple of days of rain and found the movies on demand to be handy, as there is not much to do if the weather is poor. We loved having a plunge pool on the deck and many an afternoon was spent lazing in the sun by it.
There were three restaurants, aswell as room service available for dining options. Our best meal was at Jing restaurant on our last night, a big thank you to our waiter Sameera who we found to be very knowledgeable, friendly and personable throughout our stay (he was often at Jahaz restaurant when we went for lunch also). The restaurant options did get a little bit repetitive towards the end of our 12 day stay, however I think that would happen on any island!
The only thing that marred an otherwise perfect stay was some misleading information in their daily newsletter 'The Halaveli Daily Sun' for their 'Dinner of Dreams' destination dining experience. The newsletter offered 30% off the Dinner of Dreams (US$190 per person instead of US$265 per person), which in their room service booklet it notes that this package includes: 1 bottle house champagne, a deluxe 5 course menu-customised to your liking, romantic beach setting, private chef and butler.
When we arrived at the dinner we were asked by the waiter if we would like some wine with our meal, so we queried whether champagne was included and after checking for us, we were told not it was not. When my husband phoned to query again with guest relations the following day, he was told that the reason why the dinner is discounted was because it didn't include everything. Well if you're not going to include everything in the package, then it isn't really a discount, is it?
Other than that little hiccup, everything was perfect, a good balance of ensuring your every whim is catered to but without being too intrusive.
