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.

Absolutely loved it!!! The turquoise waters are a great place to snorkel to look at the beautiful fishes. Staff were brilliant and helpful. Very calm atmosphere. Went there for honeymoon. They have excursions such as snorkeling with turtles, swimming with whale sharks, diving with mantas etc. Definitely recommend!!!

We stayed in early December, we expected when we pulled open our curtains early the next morning we were greeted with turquoise sea, blue sky and loads of not so little marine visitors greeting us outside! All the staff here try very hard, from waiting staff, room cleaners, diving staff, or reception they staff go out of their way to genuinely look after their guests. Each evening the management introduced themselves at dinner and Kingston in particular was very thoughtful and welcoming in his approach to guests.The Diving crew were all very good. I have dived all over the world and these guys were the best, very helpful who went the extra mile to cater for needs. In particular Timea & Franck whose organisation of dive sites via a tablet outside the dive shop, briefings and

Have had the Maldives on my bucket list for years and the problem with that is that having travelled the world, the chance of disappointment is high. Not so ! Am still here about to leave and booking my return. It’s beyond amazing. The accommodation, the food, the staff, the sand, sea.... everything perfect. Staff can’t do enough. Kingston the restaurant manager works very hard. sunheil our waiter was fabulous ... the bar staff equally so..... nothing to much trouble. Expect to come and do very little. I was worried I would be bored but actually discovered for the first time ever, how to relax. Spent 7 days and that was probably enough. Snorkelled every day. Planned to dive but the snorkelling was so goo there was no need. Stayed in water villa, the odd numbers are more private

This is a little piece of heaven, I just came back yesterday and was very sad to leave. We stayed at a water vila and it was great to have direct access to great snorkeling riffs. I also got my scuba diving certificate there and the Scuba Center was excellent, my instructor, Timea, was excellent and made the experience fantastic. The room was very comfortable, spacious, and quiet at night, very comfy bed, you only hear the ocean waves. The only unpleasant thing about the room is the permanent sewage smell that emanates from the toilet, I'm not sure it's something they can fix but it was quite unpleasant. WIFI was free in the reception area but you have to pay extra if you want it in the room. The buffet meals were great and varied, and you can get as many Pina Coladas as you

Just back from 10 days on this exceptional Island staying in one of the Water Villa's. I have visited the Maldives several times previously and wanted my partner to experience the beauty that only the Maldives provides, this resort has the unique skill of providing a relaxed environement combined with exceptional customer service. I was a little concerned that my partner would be bored having never spending holidays on such small Islands but he loved it and declared it his best ever holiday.
