“november dream”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

my wife and i stayed at moofushi for 2 weeks early november,it was to celebrate my wifes birthday and was a surprise for her, although she did guess it was the maldives when she asked about shoes and i said you will not need any. a few family members knew we were off to the maldives but not the resort, i texted from airport to let them know it was moofushi. i booked with monarch in the uk [ they were by far the cheapest ] we flew to dubai from gatwick for a couple of hours stop off. the flight was with emirates and we found them very very good,even the food was excellant [ i think monarch are starting a direct flight with ba later this year ] the moofushi private lounge on arrival is a joy.the seaplane transfer was unreal, but due to the maldives catching the tailend of the hurricane in the phillipenes we were unable to land in the resort and had to land offshore and we were taken in by speedboat,this was not a problem at all,but as this was a surprise for my wife i had read all the reviews seen all of the photos and i knew what was coming and would have liked to see the look of delight on her face as we flew above moofushi,as we flew above resorts before moofushi she would ask is that one ours. met by management and staff at the jetty as is everyone [this is an excellent touch] it was windy and raining on arrival so the island looked dark and dull,but i knew what it looked like when the sun was shining,kay said how beautiful it was and i said wait till sun comes out. we stayed in a water villa[101] which is at the begining of the water villas i had emailed the hotel months in advance to ask for a sunset villa and mentioning this was a belated birthday[5 days] for kay, when shown to our room the bed was covered in beautiful flowers etc spelling out happy birthday to kay,a bottle of sparkling wine on ice and a beautiful deep chocolate birthday cake that tasted as good as it looked[thank you eugiene].the weather for november was unusual due to reason above but on the third day the sun shone and did so till departure. as others have mentioned the resort is small,never seems full,sand is as white as it gets,and indian ocean is as clear as it gets. in most resorts you tend to take a few days to settle in[not here you just fill so comfortable from the start and this is due to the staff and management] we were greeted at breakfast,dinner,even for drinks as mr and mrs w, even later into holiday by first names[when we got off of speedboat kay was even greeted with welcome mrs w this must have been in regards to her birthday as she was the only one greeted like this] a beautiful touch. we have been to some lovely places in the past[we are not loaded] but i do lots of overtime,kay works lots of hours but i think enjoy now. the food,the settings etc are excellant,we ate in the allize twice but did prefer the manta.feeding the rays on jetty is a must, as is wine tasting in the sea,avi the sommelier even had me tasting and drinking wine and i dont like wine an achievement believe me. the back of house tour is excellant,as is the free dolphin boat trip[we didnt see any but the staff on the boat lost a large fish and then caught a 40 kilo sailfish,which was brought aboard. this was taken to the kitchens to be cooked for that night. we had booked to go to allize that night, but when walking to allize we saw a large fish on the grill and we asked if this was the fish caught on dolphin exursion, when we mentioned this to chef steven he said you must have a taste we did[lovely] i secretly booked the sandbank breakfast [cost approx 85 pounds] i wont comment about as i will spoil it for you but its mindblowing and it will be the best 85 quid you spend.[special thanks to nassee for our sandbank trip and your service to us in manta. there are so many staff to thank[you do tend to pick favourites maybe some will serve you more than others so you tend to strike up a friendly relationship] but they are all better than i have ever had the privelage to meet. the snorkling is amazing i am not a great waterman but i saw things that were unbelievable,i fed maybe 60 fish at arms length whilst snorkling under the water villas,lots of large fish feet away also a 6 foot shark i did panic as it was only 20 feet away but i now know i should have carried on.as per dress code you dress as you like shorts and shirt,trousers longsleeved shirt nice dress or something more basic up to you we preffered dressing up but we always do.i would love to return to moofushi but this is unlikely to be soon.can i please thank avi[sommelier] adam[manta] rifkahn[manta rest manager] guarav[manta bar]mathu[manta bar]rithath[manta bar] nassee[manta and sandbank] dj sanjeewa[yes i was up dancing to the sugarhill gang and eminem] george[manta bar] and last but not least [firaas] and [rifkahn] for our last night on the beach, we were asked 4 or 5 days previously what our room number was i thought it maybe something to do with kays birthday but it wasnt i think we were lucky enough to be chosen to have dinner on the beach in the moonlight thanks so much for this.firaas thank you so much for your service and especially for our last night the palm yacht with our room number 101 on it has pride of place at home, also big thanks go to ahmed our superb room boy spotless room replaced things in mini fridge without hesitation[and i really enjoyed our dance on the maldivian night] if you are lucky enough to be able to go to this resort more than once you are lucky i am hoping to return one day but it is doubtful.i check tripadvisor reviews almost daily to see the latest.,if you are thinking of somewhere to go extra special or special you will not beat moofushi .thank you all at constance moofushi kind regards mr and mrs w

It's true, Moofushi is everything people said it was.
The senior villas are fantastic, I could snorkel from our villa onto a fantastic reef just 15 meters from our sun deck.
The food is fantastic, fresh fish everyday and wonderful salads. The sommeliers and wine selection is great as our the cocktails in the lounge or at the bar.
Staff are friendly and service is good, this is the place to chill and unwind.

Room Tip: senior villas are worth the extra.

It was our first and really fantastic trip in the Maledives,
Nothing to say except really totally perfect for the room, the restaurant, the spa and the diving center ... A very nice experience

Only one recommendation for European guests, (we came from Belgium ), take care of the air conditioning in the room, the temperature was really nice and very high outside and the fresh air in the room was too low ... So what happen , we got a cold ... Next time we will take care ...

Thanks a again,
See you soon

My husband and I have just returned from our 10 night honeymoon at Moofushi and are still struggling to find the words to describe how wonderful our experience at this resort was. From the personal greeting at Male airport, to the luxurious seaplane departure lounge and the warm welcome from staff as we alighted the seaplane, our first experience of the Maldives was that of being treated like royalty, which did not change for the entire stay.

The island is compact yet beautifully laid out, with an upper guest limit of around 220 people. We discovered several days in that the resort was at capacity for our entire stay, but you would never have guessed this from the extensive seating/sunbeds/staff etc always available and the tranquillity which takes precedence 24 hours a day.

The food is incredible and vegetarians are extremely well catered for. If something on a live cooking station on the buffet appears to be not vegetarian, the chefs will happily make you something that will suit your diet. The A La Carte restaurant is the same - you will not see any vegetarian/vegan dishes on the menu, but ask at reception and within 5 minutes you will be speaking to the restaurant manager who will cook your a special meal to order. Back to the Manta buffet - The extent of the mouthwatering salads, vegetables and fruits has to be seen to be believed. 6 flavours of home-made ice-cream every night and a dessert table groaning with options - don't even try to resist the dessert chefs; they will not let you go away empty handed! The food highlight for me was the Indian/Sri Lankan themed buffet night - I don't think I'll ever enjoy a British curry quite the same again.

Nash the Sommelier provided us with limitless amounts of phenomenal wine - the biggest decision each night was selecting which of the 120 bottles included in the Cristal package to start with. If you are interested in wine, you may also be lucky enough to be taken on a tour of the cellars and wine storage, and find out a little more about how they manage the wine on the island. The wine-tasting in the water at sunset is not to be missed.

Our Senior water villa was faultless and looked after twice a day by Azim. I worried that we might hear our neighbours out on their terrace, but the only sounds we heard was lapping water and fish jumping. Sunsets and star watching at the end of the jetty was a highlight - the beautiful clear skies and amazing stars make you feel very far from home.

There seemed to be no dominant nationality at the resort - it is a truly international island, with couples from UK, USA, Japan, China, SE Asia, S. America, Australia and NZ. The British school holidays started during our stay and what had been previously a child-free island became home to a reasonable amount of families over the course of a weekend, but again due to the amount of space available we did not feel our holiday was disturbed by stray kids at all (or perhaps they were just well-behaved?).

Tips
- take the 'Back Of The House' tour and find out how the island ticks - it is utterly fascinating, especially the kitchen and water desalination plant. The staff/guest ratio is more than 1:1 and there are 48 chefs in the kitchen!
- If you are fair skinned, take a rash-guard or long-sleeved white t-shirt to protect from the sun whilst snorkelling in the water between 10am - 4pm. The sun is so strong and sunscreen just doesn't work in the water after a while. Ladies; consider shorts too, as burnt bottom cheeks are not good. There were a lot of very burnt people at the resort every day - the sun was certainly a lot stronger than I ever expected and next time I will be using higher than SPF30 in the first week.
- Look out for the nameless resort cat who lurks near buildings at night. He arrived on the island as a kitten on a boat one day and has never left. He has no other cat-friends and is very affectionate!

It was a total wrench to leave, and writing this from the relative comfort of our home in Scotland is very depressing! I look forward to going back in the future - it is a very special place.

Everything you could possibly imagine from a 5 star hotel.
The food was outstanding lots of choice each day for a week (May get slightly repetitive if you were there for 2 weeks)
Wine was fantastic with help from the wine sommelier(different bottle every night),with each one being delicious.
The island is surprisingly small compared to Cocoa Palm but plenty of space for everyone !!
We had a beautiful time on moo fushi it is just gorgeous!!!
We even managed to find the island cat !! Mr moo fushi we liked to call him.(very sweet and loves cuddles)
If I could be so rude to make any bad points ??
We were quite unlucky with tides so a lot of rubbish was dragged up on to the beach,outside our beach villa. We made it known to reception and it was sorted but I think is definitely something that needs to be checked at several times during the day. We had a beautiful beach villa number 10 which was perfect for us we sunbathed on beach during the morning then hung-out on the
Decking and hammock in the hottest times.
If anyone is looking into constance moo fushi, you have my recommendation. By far the best all inclusive package ever! Please check out the boat house for the hire of a kayak we managed to go around the island twice and get great tans !! Please send my love to all the staff and mr moofushi !!!!!
