Our first trip to the Maldives for our honeymoon. Stayed at Constance Moofushi between April 7th - 13th, in Senior Water Villa number 76 - which was second last from the end of the jetty. We also had the Cristal all-inclusive package - highly recommended!
Transfer from Male - we had to stay the night in Male, and the next day EVERYTHING regarding our transfer to the resort was taken care of. We took the first seaplane out of Male, and that's an awesome experience in itself! We didn't see our bags until we were in our room, which was fantastic. We waited in the Moofushi airport lounge until the seaplane was ready for departure - they had a good selection of sandwiches, pastries and drinks.
Arrival into Moofushi - we were met by some of the staff, who took us to reception. As our room wasn't ready, we were free to look around, use the resort lounge (usually for those waiting to leave) or even have a refreshing drink at the bar. Check-in was simple and efficient.
Room - we had senior water villa no. 76. When I close my eyes I try and imagine myself there! it was such a nice room - great size, large shower area, 2 washbasins (his n hers), mini-bar (all free), aircon, fan, free Wi-Fi (good speed!) and awesome entertainment system. the bed was huge, and very comfy. We had 2 outdoor showers, and an outdoor bath. PERFECT! The access to the house reef from here is great at all times, even low tide. The walk to the island is the longest from this point, but that's irrelevant because this place is paradise.
Food and Service - faultless service, and AMAZING food. Everything is so fresh and tasty. my faves were the lunch burger station run by Supun and the egg station, run by my new friend Neeraj. Each night had a specific theme, and the standout was the Asian night. the chefs do a wonderful job in creating tasty dishes everynight. And if you have something they don't have, just ask and they'll make it for you!! Two restaurants: Manta and Alizee. Manta does the buffet every night, and Alize is the a la carte. The food at both was so good.
Bars - there are two bars - Totem and Manta. The totem bar has a relaxed feel moreso than the Manta, because it is totally outdoors. it's great sitting there having a cocktail or 3!
Spa: we visited the spa 3 times. Rose, and Gladys were our amazing therapists. I recommend the Moofushi signature massage (can't remember the name), but it's an experience in itself! the staff are very professional, and you'll be definitely relaxed after a visit there.
Gym: The equipment is excellent. Cardio equipment and free-weights were more than enough.
People to thank: I would personally like to thank the following people at the resort because you did an amazing job that made our honeymoon unforgettable: Neeraj, Supun, Madusha, Rahul (amazing guy), Rifkan, Rifu (we hope your dad is better), Aduray (at reception - lovely guy, so well spoken).
We met some lovely people, so if you read this, hello to Anna and Thomas; Yuji and Hana; and Andrea, Barry, Neve (such a character! we loved your Aussie accent; and we forgot your sisters name!).
We spoke to a few people who have been to the Maldives several times, and stayed at other resorts too. All of the said that Constance Moofushi was the best - the fact that there are no 'snooty' or arrogant guests gives it a massive advantage over other big name resorts.
We would return in a heartbeat, and we're already planning another visit next year!!
