We took the first flight after the blocked down for 10 days. From the first minutes we understood, that our vacation would be great! We were provided with the complementary pool villa instead of beach villa as well as lots of presents, like welcome massage and try dive. All staff are very, very attentive. Kudafushi diving center is one of the five best in the Maldives, the guys arranged for me an unforgettable dive with sharks and turtles. As for the restaurant and kitchen, it is a separate pleasure. Even if you didn’t find something on the menu, you have a food allergy, or you simply would like to add something - you will always be satisfied. The waiters remember your preferences and already anticipate your desires (special thanks to Danielle). The reef deserves a special attention, it is really fabulous, as it stretches around the entire island. Even if you don't like diving, you won't lose anything if you just go snorkeling around the island. Cleaning of the rooms is also fast and unnoticeable, they always choose the time when you went to breakfast or lunch. With regard to measures to protect against COVID-19, everything is also at an high level. The menu in restaurants opens with a QR code, doors and handles are constantly processed and disinfected, tables are at a good distance. If necessary, you can also pass Covid-19 test at the hotel, in case you need it to return home. I can talk for a long time about this amazing vacation, but I will say one thing, I just want to return as soon as possible, as it turned out that a vacation at the Maldives may not be boring at all (if you want it of course). I want to thank Didi, Jameel, Matteo, Nasru, Angi and all amazing Kudafushi team who became a real family for us. Hope to see you soon!!!

My husband and I chose Kudafushi as our honeymoon destination and it truly was the perfect choice! This little paradise island offers everything you need for complete relaxation. The food, staff and services were excellent, even for my husband's picky taste. We stayed in a stunning overwater villa with pool that was really spacious and had a beautiful sundeck overlooking the turquoise sea. The island was very tidy and well maintained and the reef just outside the main beach had plenty of colorful fish, we even saw a sea turtle there.

From the moment we arrived at this charming island we felt very welcome and taken care of. Especially our ”hero” Alba always made sure we had everything we needed and was such a fun host at the lovely snorkeling trip we took to a nearby desert island.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Kudafushi and would warmly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience paradise. We definitely hope to come back again!

We had a great time - the staff and their services are amazing, very keen to details and especially to our comfort.

Very easy to communicate with the hotel manager Angi, particularly when it comes to reserving your spot in water activities, dinings, and spa treatments. Via WhatsApp or email, it's your choice. They are quick to respond to any inquiry.

Room service is impressive, they clean once per day when you're not around and you come to your room as if it's the first time you enter. The hygiene is great.

The island itself is unique - from it's natural vegetation to it's lagune.

You can find huge Football and tennis courts to play anytime.

The spa treatment rooms are spacious and very nice.

The colors of the rooms have natural tones.

I recommend Kudafushi as a romantic hideaway or even as a family trip. A lot of things to enjoy whether with/for your kids or partner.

WE HAD AN AMAZING TIME!! We chose this resort for our honeymoon and do not regret it. We picked the over the water villa with the pool which benefited us well when not wanting to go to the beach. The staff was friendly and absolutely enjoyed getting to know some of them, like Lis and Oru. They did a great job with trying to keep themselves and guest safe; example being they served the food at the buffet style restaurant. I appreciate them being environmentally conscious with decreasing their plastic use (filtered and supplied their own drinking water) and no plastic bags in the trash. They also did clean your room, but not everyday. That I thought was very smart and great for the environment. Food was good, drinks were good and the staff kept the grounds impeccable. One thing to note: on Priceline (which is where we booked) it did not state it was an All Inclusive and Soft All Inclusive. So when we booked, it was for the Soft All Inclusive which we weren't aware of until we arrived. So be mindful if booking on a third party site. All in all, definitely recommend this resort. Cannot wait to return.

I have just spent the most amazing time in this little resort, so cozy, very delightful, and the hospitality level is amazing. The food is on another level and service is phenomenal.

Just grab your goggles and start snorkiling directly in any direction from the beach, and you'll be amazed by the beauty of the corals, the colorful fish and the occasional turtles. It was a sight not to be missed. Make sure you grab a water resistant phone cover and you'll be able to take National Geography type photos with your phone under water, no exaggeration.

The staff members are awesome and they make you feel like your visiting your families island, not once we felt distant or unattended. They are always looking after your needs and making sure your having a blast, specially with their Hero system, where a team member from the resort is dedicated to your stay and follows up with you to make sure your having the utmost fun and comfort during your stay.

I highly recommend the All Inclusive package as it would keep your hunger and thirst sated with top quality and an amazing variety of food, over the last 9 days I spent there almost never had repeated cuisine, always changing, always different, and always very tasteful. Not to forget the deserts are also out of this world with high level of creativity.

The facilities are super clean and the resorts really takes safety precautions and covid-19 measures seriously but not in an invasive way, their measures are subtle yet very firm and assuring. The rooms and facilities are always cleaned and sanitized on regular basis.

The Spa is another story, by far one of the best experiences you can ask for, their level of professionalism is very high and their skills in massage therapy is exceptional. Absolutely recommend to try it.

Lastly I'd like to thank the management team and all the staff members of Kudafushi Resort & Spa for their great establishment and environment they have created. And especially I would like to thank Suresh, Roopam, Ann, Sahan, Angi, Samir, and Milan for making our stay really magical.

PS. Don't let the weather fool you, even if it rains its part of it and also very enjoyable

Dear Kuda Fushi Resort & SPA,

My wife and I had best romantic vacation of our life at your beautiful tiny paradise! Everything was excellent for us from day 1! Sea Plane flight from Male was very good organized, comfortable and quick with amazing views through the windows! You have fantastic friendly people working at this island! We had great service, delicious food and unbelievable beautiful nature! Ocean was warm, weather was sunny, we saw smiles everywhere at Kuda Fushi that we wanted to smile too! ))) Massages were relaxing (our bodies recovered) at SPA, therapists girls are professionals, we liked coconut oil so much that we took some of that to our home! Our Beach Villa # 210 was kept clean whole stay, room boys Anwar & Mukhamed did their job very good. Guides and Personal Senior Assistants Cathy and Eva were very helpful for us many times! Leath cooked very tasty Tuna, there was also great pasta with seafood every day!!! Abou served us during lunches and dinners at the high level, we very appreciated his attention. Having dinners at the sea edge under the stars and light breeze - things that we never forget in our life. Jet Ski ride to the desert island was also memorable, thanks to Alsin who helped us with this drive. Mocktails “BananaCoco” & ”Kuda Fushi Lagoon” were something especial at Ju-Ju Bar! 👍 New 2020 Year Dinner was unforgettable - so many different food types to try! We liked very much live music and songs from the Maestro with skirt, New Year celebration (concert and show) and Maldivian national dances! We loved Kuda Fushi at Maldives from first step on and enjoyed our vacation so much that when our time at Kuda Fushi has come to an end, we did not want to leave! 😊

This trip was an amazing experience for our family. Thank you for presenting people the pleasure of resting at the top level and helping to achieve their dreams which become truth. There is always hard work going on behind this.

We hope to be back one day to you, dear Kuda Fushi!

Thank you again.

Best Regards,
Sergey & Svetlana

We were recommended Kudafushi by a reputable Maldives specialist after asking for a beautiful island with good food and a true Maldivian feel but not dated rooms.

Kudafushi ticked all our boxes and we were not disappointed! The island is so well maintained and the staff work hard to keep it looking immaculate at all times. The vegetation adds to the islands beauty and the sand is the powder white soft sand you expect, shoes are not required to walk around the island

One of my favourite things was management were always present and working along with their team, something I’ve not seen before in the Maldives. This is probably why the island runs so smoothly, the restaurant service was always top standard and the team are like a family. They were all friendly and provided amazing service with a friendly hello and smile

The main restaurant was the best buffet food we have experienced; fresh, variety and well cooked. I am a vegetarian and never struggled to find something I liked. My husband loved the fresh fish and the different themes each night. Pastries and dessert were very good!

We had a meal at Olive me which was exceptional, the beach set up added to the special occasion but the food was amazing

A must when staying at the island is the “Lucky Dolphin” excursion. The crew were friendly and the guide extremely knowledgeable. We were lucky to see plenty of dolphins, but even if we hadn’t the trip would of been enjoyable thanks to the team

Our room was always cleaned well and the location & view from our beach bungalow was perfect

The Sea Edge huts to watch the sunset are a great idea. Cocktails included on the all inclusive were very nice and the DJ night on a Thursday provided a great atmosphere to enjoy them

Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and definitely would return. Constructive criticism is helpful but I honestly can’t think of any thing I would change. Thank you Kudafushi for a perfect holiday

We had the expectations of this being a once in a life time experience and it totally lived up to it.

The resort is beautiful the accommodation was excellent, well set out and very private. Oh! In the resort sockets are uk spec.

What did we do:
Relax, the main point of this holiday and we were 100% successful 😎
Snorkelling, take your own gear as it’s expensive. The island is surrounded by coral which is teaming with life. I saw stingrays, black tip reef sharks as well as many other fish.
Sea kayaking is free for 1 hr, we went around the island several times it’s not long, easy to do in calm conditions.

We are a firm believers in customer service really makes your experience and the staff were exceptional, from our stay manger, gardeners, water activity staff and the room cleaning staff. All had made you feel so welcome and made the experience so special.
I cannot not praise enough the staff and the location.

We left by sea plane, which was about £80 each, it was well worth it. This is because we could leave later for our early flight and the experience.

The island is pro conservation which is fantastic.

We have just returned from a fantastic, relaxing 12 days on the island. Having researched many other resorts before hand, we were so pleased with our choice of Kudafushi. The other reviews and photos totally sum up the wonderful experience. Before booking we looked at the different types of accommodation available on the island and were so pleased with our choice of a beach villa with pool. To be able to walk out of the very spacious villa to your own pool and then literally a couple more metres to your own private part of the beach was a delight. The staff were all so attentive and our room cleaner made the most wonderful anniversary display with flowers, palms and towel arrangements on our bed which was a highlight. The food was delicious in all the restaurants, plentiful in choice and freshly cooked. We booked a couple of nights, at no additional cost, at the Mediterranean restaurant and loved sitting at a table on the beach overlooking the water to eat. We had a few spa treatments and were impressed with them all- very relaxing and attentive. We used the gym which was of a good size and well equipped, but found it quite warm even with the AC, so we tended to prefer to walk around the perimeter of the island a few times after each meal as part of our daily exercise. This was a lovely way to walk off the delicious food. We also went out on the morning snorkelling trip to a nearby reef which was great. From our part of the island we saw so many different fish, corals plus eagle rays and a turtle just snorkelling in the reef right by our villa. Do bring your own snorkelling equipment if you have it otherwise you will need to rent from the dive centre at an extra cost each day. We choose the seaplane option to get from the main international airport to the island and this was a lovely way to see the other islands from above and took about 45 minutes. All in all we would highly recommend this resort for families, couples and all different ages.

We had a wonderful time a this resort. Staff are lovely and helpful Main dining is buffet service but with assistance from staff to avoid touching tongs etc. ,This I assume will change when all the covid rules are relaxed. Food was very much to our liking and lots of choice. We booked the 2 waiter service restaurants which were both great, particularly the one on the beach where we had a fillet steak that was delicious! We didn't need to wear our masks other than on the seaplane and speedboat journeys. All staff wore theirs though. We were soft inclusive so all soft drinks included, coffees etc but we chose to pay for alcohol as we aren't big drinkers. You get 2 free beers in your mini fridge every day anyway. We found the alcohol very reasonable prices eg a cocktail was $10 or $12 and a vodka was about $4 (and that was Smirnoff). Entertainment in the evening is very low key in the evenings so if you want something more lively then maybe consider anther resort but it suited us down to the ground!. The beaches are stunning, the infinity pool is fab & the service around the pool & in the bar were excellent....try the iced coffees! We visited the spa and had an excellent massage there. There were tennis courts & pool tables, a gym etc with air conditioning in the gym & leisure centre area. We had a water villa which we would recommend but the beach villas looked equally as good and had their own little area outside the villas. Our villa was traditionally decorated which we loved as it felt like we were experiencing the style & culture of the Maldives. It had a huge bathroom & a dressing room type area. It was kept extremely clean by our room cleaner & mini fridge topped up daily.

Ladies note- with the sandy tracks to and from restaurants etc, there is no need for your high heels in the evenings, just flip flops or sandals and in fact a good 50% or more guests went barefoot all the time! We used watsapp to book meals and ask any questions which were always answered promptly. Sea is crystal clear & snorkelling is superb. I must have seen about 60 different fish literally 5 or 6m from the beach or from our water villa steps. Also, saw a pod of dolphins literally swimming by us! Some people say wifi isn't great but in general we found it to be perfectly fine. There are 2 English film channels running 24/7 just in case you wake at 3am when your body clock is adjusting with the tine difference. LOL. All in all a totally relaxing chill holiday, thank you Kudafushi!!
