Vakarufalhi Island Resort, tucked away in the remote corner of South Ari atoll, 90km away from the airport, Vakarufalhi is among the pearls that make up the amazing Maldives Islands. Vakarufalhi, better known as Vakaru, is a tropical island enhanced by swaying coconut palms and white sandy beaches. Surrounding the island is a pristine lagoon enriched by a stunningly beautiful living house reef. These features combined with traditional Maldivian building concepts, makes Vakarufalhi a haven of nature and tranquility. Almost a quarter of a square kilometer of land area with 50 sea front Beach Villas spread evenly around the island and 25 Water Villas creates an atmosphere which rejuvenates your body and mind.

This place is a heaven for anyone who wants to visit Maldives. Me & my wife stayed here in jan 2020 for my honeymoon for 6 nights at water villa and it was just spectacular. the weather was amazing all 6 days. the beach, sun, moon, water, and lounge & many more things was just surreal. the people working there are super nice and fulfill all your demands. i would like to say thanks to these 3 people who took care of us immensely - " Kingston ( manager), chef - Shravankumar pujari and server - Sohel " these 3 are beautiful souls & a real jem. about the island - they have snorkeling & canoeing. you can play badminton, ping pong, dart, volleyball etc. for food - it was just delicious. if you are vegetarian like us even then chef pujari takes great care of you. We also did romantic

A small well managed island ( around 150 guests and the same number of staff ) where you find comfortable accommodation with excellent food and a determination on the part of the staff to ensure that your every need is catered for. Luca, the General Manager, was very much in evidence greeting and talking with his guests to ensure that the felt welcome and the Executive Chef Pushpah was frequently in the restaurant to see that what he provided was what was wanted and was being enjoyed. Snorkelling from the beach or from the end of the jetty (good steps provided) was good and equipment included . We have returned home with the happiest of memories. If you like small islands this one is reasonably priced and highly recommended.

This was our third visit to the Maldives and this island and the holiday was amazing and it was relaxing in paradise. The members of staff were brilliant and very attentive in all aspects, Although all staff were good there are far too many to mention however there are some that deserve a mention. Housekeeping came in twice a day sorry didn't your name but who ever looked after villa 142 thank you. Dining area and bar Subin and Lalaine in the bar made sure your glass was never empty and Kingston, Dewa and Faruk in the dining area especially Kingston he would ask nearly everyday do you need anything is everything ok. The head chef would visit your table each evening and check if everything was OK, the food was amazing every night and the New. Years Eve Gala dinner was out of

The big decision when visiting the Maldives is whether to stay on a large island or a small island. Would you get bored on a tiny island you could walk round in 10 minutes? Do you really need 9 restaurants and 5 bars to choose from each day? Having done the latter, we were unsure about spending 10 days on a one restaurant/ one bar island with only 100 guests. Now we know. Small Island Maldives are Paradise personified. We didn’t wear shoes the entire time- shoes are practically discouraged as being almost against the spirit of the island.........! Personal service and personal touches abound and continually surprise you. Can’t wait to return.....

My husband and I just got back from the most beautiful holiday we ever had at Vakarufalhi. Everything was just perfect. The water vila is huge, super clean, incredible view. The food is great, didn't have one single meal that wasn't delicious. The drinks are really good too. The service is unbelievably good there. Everyone is super kind and we really enjoyed getting to know them. Can't praise them enough! We did a lot of snorkeling in the lagoon inside the reef and saw small blacktip sharks, stingrays, needlefish, lots of different fish, especially just outside our vila. It was amazing, we loved it. We also went on an excursion to see mantas and saw one, but there was a lot of people there from other resorts and the place was packed. We spent almost 2 hours to get there and
