The Resort is newly built with a great taste and design oriented in every detail. Nothing here is short of luxurious. THE STAFF HERE IS EVERYTHING and will most likely be the reason why you will want to come back. In all the departments they went over and beyond to meet and anticipate our needs while establishing a real human connection with us while working tirelessly. Special mentions: Tihanshu who is actually in Sales but our temporary welcoming guide to the island. Pauline, who tended to our needs at the Water Bar, alwas remembering what we liked and indulged us in every request. She is super professional and we missed her on her day off. Smitha at the Spa whose hands are a godsent. She made it a personal mission to successfully take care of my back pain. Rinku, our fitness and yoga teacher. I could dedicate some time to mindfulness and destressing. He even gave me excercises to do at home and I'm sure that's not part of his work requirements. Reesham checked on us during our meals and entertained us with great conversation on the local life. We loved Pippa, marine biologist and extremely skilled other than a very caring person. This is really hard because one review could not possibly cover how much we appreciated our stay and the staff's hard work.A special thank you to Pierre who is doing an exceptional work as a general manager and who we witnessed supporting his staff everyday, especially during this covid transition to being fully staffed.

Hotel's Favourite
A reopened, stylish gem for an unforgettable intake of ocean, marinelife, good food, a great diversity of guests, philippa‘s manta ray programme. Is the reef dull at the first glimpse- yes it is. Is it dead- good news, no, it comes back to life!! The abundance of reef fish is overwhelming! So is the hospitality of a very inspired team. We will come back! Thomas from Switzerland

My husband and I recently spent a week at Lti Maafushivaru. We unfortunately arrived during a day of horrendous weather and delays with the seaplane. When we finally arrived at the island, Pierre and the staff at the front desk could not have done more for us to make us feel comfortable, and try to forget the days travel! From then we knew we'd picked a great hotel! We were staying in a water pool villa which was divine. The villas have recently been re-built and were superb; spacious, clean and modern. The restaurant and facilities were all 5* with the service exceptional. A big shout out and thanks to Chara in the Water Bar and Umi, and Maaiz in Cielo. Both were so kind and attentive during our frequent visits to these parts of the island! The island itself is immaculate and situated on a beautiful reef. The grounds and maintenance staff are constantly working on the upkeep to ensure the island is preserved and do a wonderful job. Thanks to all for an amazing holiday. We can't wait to come back!

Where do I start? Our time at Maafushivaru felt less like a holiday and more like a dream. From the moment we stepped foot on the arrival Jetty we were welcomed by friendly faces, eagerly waiting to greet us. We were taken to reception by Pierre, the resort manager who introduced himself to us and passed us over to Constanza who helped get us checked in and showed us around the resort and our rooms. From there on, our holiday (or dream should I say) really started! Even during Covid the resort had a wide array of food options including an international dinner buffet, a Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant an indian grill and a large selection of Tapas to choose from! For a coffee lover like myself, Anmul at Library lounge was there to make the best coffees you've had to this day. I have to take this moment to call out a few people who made this trip extra special for my family and I. First and foremost, Pippa! The marine biologist at Maafushivaru. Yes you heard that right, they have their own!! Pippa took us on a series of excursions including a trip to swim with whale sharks, a snorkelling safari and much more! Secondly Sheena - who helped my family capture long lasting memories on this beautiful island. Photos we will treasure for years to come. Finally Tihanshu who helped us with the entire process of booking and actually made this trip happen. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't calling him everyday before I arrived to check on the weather and covid cases in the country. These are just a handful of people that made this trip memorable - there were so many more who made it such a pleasant and unforgettable trip - Vivi, Doris, Dipesh and the rest of the gang at Water Bar that made me countless Pina Coladas. I will never forget you guys! Considering we had no idea what to expect from this island it's safe to say we were stunned and are already planning a trip back! Highly recommend this place to anyone considering it, and i can promise YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!
