We stayed at the Constance Moofushi for 12 nights from November 3rd 2013, and we could not have imagined a better destination to celebrate or marriage. We had read the many excellent reviews and had been recommended also by our travel agent, but the reality was beyond our expectations. You are greeted at Male airport as soon as you get through customs, and whisked off to the Constance waiting room, where cold towels, drinks, coffee and refreshments are available in first class surroundings. The sea plane ride to the Island was a great experience in itself, very smooth take off and landing, stopping at two other resorts en route. When we arrived at the resort, we were greeted by the Manager, with check in already done at the airport. We had requested a Senior Water Villa at the far end of the jetty as we had read these were very private and quiet, and were delighted to be shown to number 78, right at the end of the jetty. The villa was simply stunning, with flower petals on the bed, towels made into swans, bubbly chilling in the ice bucket, and views to die for across the reef.
The holiday followed this dream world theme, with amazing food and service, particularly at the Alizee restaurant, where we had lunch most days (the mini burgers and Caesar salad are fabulous), and dinner on two evenings, feet in the sand listening to the waves. We want to thank in particular Shane Barry, the Alizee restaurant manager, who went beyond the call of duty by lending us his personal camera and putting our photographs onto CD, after we had forgotten to pack our own camera charger. Shane looked after us the whole holiday, along with his fabulous team, including Vijay the Alizee chef (get his Caesar dressing recipe!!!). Other 'make the difference' people to mention are the whole Sommelier team, who really know their stuff, and took us on a journey around the World trying different white and Rose wines with our meals, but Avi in particular provided the 'knowledge' of the grape on this trip. Our room was kept spotless by Raoof, who ensured our mini bar was always well stocked with snacks and drinks, which are all included in the package. Risham, one of the Manta restaurant waiters, actually travelled out with us on the sea plane, and always looked after us with a huge smile when we dined there, but to be honest, every member of staff always had a huge smile and a warm hello any time you met or passed them by.
Overall, we could not recommend this resort enough, come rain or shine (we had two very wet days), with the most amazing snorkelling, diving (we did the try dive, loved it). We didn't want to come home, as this resort has everything you would want from an all inclusive package, premium everything all the way, friendly and attentive staff, to die for views and surroundings. We will be back.
