We are frequent travellers and this is far the best trip of our life!
Everything has been perfectly organized and the coordination between the different services (airplane, water plane,...) is just perfect, without too much transit time.
Everybody takes care for you and is very communicative: the people at the reception desk (special greetings to Anastasia), the guy who was taking care of our room, personnel in restaurants, even the people working in the garden provided us with some explanations about plants and animals!
We will always remember the arrival in Halaveli, while getting down from the water plane, and how we have been welcomed. Everything is pure luxury over there!
We enjoyed the comfort of a water villa and were certainly not disappointed: during 11 days, we really felt alone on earth...: the villa is really huge, big bedroom, big bathroom with 2 dressing rooms and a separate toilet, great terrace deck with private pool and direct access to the lagoon..., lots of beautiful species swimming under your villa so you make a unique experience of it! It is clean everywhere, not only in the rooms but also on the island itself. It is a very quiet place, you can spend a whole day without seeing anybody walking around (and they told us the hotel was fully booked) so it gives the impression that the island is yours!
A positive point is also the food: we went twice to the Jing restaurant, the best Asian restaurant we did so far! The view on the ocean is really amazing, the service is perfect, and the food/wines… incredible! Eating with sharks and manta rays swimming under your feet is like in a dream! We went the other days to the main restaurant called Jahaz which was perfect for extended breakfast and buffet dinner. They organize each day dinner with different themes and make you discover the food and flavours coming from the Maldives but also from all the countries around… despite we are not used to eat such spicy food, we loved it!
We also tried the spa treatments, having been granted special honeymoon conditions, and decided to go back for a second time because it was so relaxing and we felt so much better! While lying on your massage bed, you can also enjoy a beautiful view while looking down at the fishes through a hole in the ground!
We went several times on excursions, mainly to snorkel, and were hit by a mix of emotions when looking for the first time in the water: you will never see such diversity anywhere else on earth! We saw turtles, sharks,... thanks also to the kindness, patience and professionalism of the personnel of the diving center!
We went there at the beginning of June, which is per definition not a good period for a stay in the Maldives. If you are also travelling at this period, be reassured: we had 11 days of beautiful weather! We only had one heavy rain during 1 or 2 hours in the night, but that's all. The wind can sometimes be strong, but it is not a problem at all since it can also be very hot there!
We had chosen for a half board formula so had to pay additional costs at the end of the journey for drinks, Jing restaurant, excursions and spa treatments, but nothing overpriced compared to the quality and standard of this resort. We have also well been informed as from the beginning of what we could expect, so it was not a surprise.
Some people said to us before leaving that a stay of 11 days in the Maldives was much too long and that we would get bored after 4 days… but we didn’t even have the time to do everything we wanted to!
This is the best excuse we could find to get back to Halaveli as soon as we can!

We chose Constance Halaveli for our honeymoon destination and stayed there between 16-23rd of july. First of all, we're so happy for finding the right resort for our holiday. From the very first moments till the last hours of our stay, we're completely satisfied with the service that we have.
The island is great even it's so small, but you have everything you wish for. The quality of the beach, restaurants, the main pool are quite well, while the staff and waiters are so polite and really happy to serve you as good as they can. If you like the nature, you can find many different tropic plants & trees, where as great living creatures like lizards, birds, crabs and most importantly tons of different fish in the sea. I highly recommend to join excursions like snorkelling, night fishing, visiting to a local island etc for all the guests but most importantly diving under the water is a must to do !! It's a life time experience.
Regarding the water villa that we stayed (room 77), you get more than you dreamed of. The bedroom & living room, the bathroom, the entrance, and of course a large terrace with a beautiful infinity pool are ready for your comfort. You have a plenty of space in your villa. While the accessories, products, furnitures used in the room are so wonderful, the butler service and "great in villa dining" are superb and really make you feel, you're in somewhere much better than a 5* hotel/resort. By the way, the foods and drinks are really world class. You want to try everything in the menu's.
Finally, I highly recommend this paradise island to everyone especially for the couples. (I also have to mention that there're many surprises and benefits for guests on their honeymoon.) Many thanks to the management team at the hotel for their great hospitality and wish to come to visit Halaveli in the future.

Room Tip: You may prefer to stay at odd numbered villas for having better snorkelling areas where as the villa...

My wife and I upgraded from Moofushi about 7 days into our honeymoon, and were able to spend the last 3 nights at the Halaveli resort. We were pleasantly surprised that the experience at the Constance resorts in the Maldives could get even better! Halaveli has the longest jetty in the Maldives and is a sight to see, both during the day and at night. The front desk staff, specifically Angelica, made us feel like VIPs as we arrived at the resort from the hot (yet exciting) speedboat ride from Moofushi.

While Moofushi had more of a social atmosphere, Halaveli is a super-premium resort where the guests more or less stay in their villas for most of the day - for a good reason.

The water villas at Halaveli offer spacious accommodations, have their own infinity swimming pools, and a very comprehensive in-villa dining service to top it all off. It is a very private experience where you do not need to leave your hut, unless you want to mix it up and grab a bite to eat or drink at the facilities on the island. We are a pretty social couple, so we took advantage of the meals in the villa, and also had the opportunity to experience some of the fine dining experiences around the island and jetty.

The snorkeling behind our water villa was very impressive. We had the opportunity to see Eagle Rays swimming in a pack, along the edge of the reef. The abundance of clown fish (Nemo), black tip reef sharks, skates, and other large fish make for a very exciting snorkeling experience.

We made reservations at both Meeru (the beach grill) along with Jing. The experience at Meeru was a very romantic one, and our waiter Hassan did an amazing job of catering to all of our needs. On our last night, we made a reservation at Jing, the fining dining establishment located on the best part of the jetty. Jing faces west, so the sunset views are spectacular. The bartender Faycal mixed up some delicious cocktails for us to enjoy as we were waiting for our table. Our suggestion is to arrive early and grab a few drinks while the sun sets. Faycal did a great job capturing some of the best photos from our entire trip on the deck of Jing.

Once our table was ready, our favorite sommelier came over and helped us pick a special bottle of champagne and red wine for our meal. Mathieu really knows his wines and picked excellent bottles within budget that made our dining experience unforgettable. The seven course tasting meal was out of this world.

Throughout our stay, we were approached by the Resident Manager, Bertrand. One of the nicest gentlemen we've ever met! He made our stay extra special, always asking if there was anything that could make our exceptional stay even better. Thank you Bertrand for your attention to detail and making us feel like VIPs on the island!

This was an unforgettable honeymoon, the only downside is that these resorts are 8600 miles away from us. We are used to vacationing in Mexico and the Caribbean... The Constance resorts in the Maldives blow those destinations out of the water!

Cheers,

Tomas and Courtney

Amazing place and amazing people, my wife and i stayed in a water villa at Halaveli two years ago and were recently reviewing our photos and remembering what a magical place it is.
We live in Durban, South Africa and are on the beach most weekends here so would consider ourselves beach people - this resort takes the beach experience to a whole new level!
Personally i think this is achieved by getting all the basics right all the time and although a 5 star resort allows the guests to wear what ever they feel comfortable in at any time.
The fact that I could spend the entire holiday barefoot even during meal times and at the bar, although not important to some, was what allowed me to truly relax and enjoy!
So in a nutshell, a sophisticated and service orientated hotel with laid back charm - highly recommended!

Visited Moofushi and Halaveli in March this year, and have been meaning to review Halaveli for a while now, so here it is...
We stayed in a beach villa and a water villa. The beach villa was amazing, huge bedroom, outside bathroom, plunge pool, little sandy path leading to the beach - lovely. The pool villa wins it for us though, incredible rooms beautifully designed with a horseshoe style layout. One side of the horseshoe is the fabulous bathroom with walk in closets (his and hers!) full size free standing bath, double vanity basins and separate walk in shower and toilet. The other half is the bedroom, with a fabulous bed, windows all round and french doors onto the deck....the deck, WOW!! Sunbeds, infinity plunge pool , table and chairs (room service here is great, especially lunchtimes) and steps into the lagoon. We opted for a beach villa near the beach at the beginning of the boardwalk and we think this was the best location (sorry can't remember numbers) but it was near the reception area. The rooms in Halaveli are some of the best we have ever stayed in, and we have travelled extensively to some of the best hotels in the world.
During our stay the hotel manager and the head chef were both absent and this has probably marred our opinion of Halaveli. We were constantly comparing to Moofushi, and the food was better at Moo! This was very surprising considering the rating of the Halaveli. As I said though this was probably due to the fact that senior management was absent. The drinks at Halaveli were very expensive, as was the lunch, but this can only be expected when staying at a leading hotel of the world. Also the clientele was better at Moo, a broad range of 'middle class' europeans, a lovely atmosphere, where Halaveli attracted the ultra wealthy and this also means lots of Russian clients who I found quite rude, but that's my personal opinion.
The main difference between Halaveli and Moofushi is the lagoon. At Moofushi we snorkelled just off from the water villa and saw a huge number of fish and even a turtle. At Halaveli we snorkelled right out where the 'best snorkelling area' was and hardly saw anything, the coral seemed to be a dead. At Moofushi there was the most spectacular lagoon waste deep as far as the eye could see, it was incredible. At Halaveli there was a lagoon but much smaller, nothing like Moofushi.
In closing both hotels are fabulous, but as you can tell our hearts are in Moofushi and we will definitely return soon....

Room Tip: Room at the start of the boardwalk closer to the reception so you can swim or wade easily across to...
