Hotel's Favourite
Finding the right luxury resort in the Maldives can be challenging. After extensive research to find a resort that met our needs: small island, sand all the way around the island, good value, easily accessible by seaplane, good diving facilities and varied dining options, we opted for Amilla. The systematically excellent Trip Advisor reviews helped to sway us in the direction of Amilla as well – we figured any GM that takes the time to respond to every single review reflects someone who genuinely cares about his guests. This was not our first Maldives trip but our beloved resort from year’s past was recently bought out by a chain and was closed for renovation. The Amilla seemed like a good alternative and proved to be so. The Amilla experience begins before arriving in the Maldives. The customer service is outstanding. The reservation staff is reactive and solutions-oriented. Before arriving, the team already knew a lot, ranging from our dietary preferences to our preferred bed linen options. The airport staff is friendly and efficient. The lounge at the new seaplane terminal is comfortable and welcoming. Upon arrival at the island, you are met by the team and the person who is assigned to taking care of you throughout your stay. In our case, it was Jupiter. She was incredible, catering to our every need and often anticipating our needs. The first room we had booked turned out to be on the windy side of the island (Reef Villa) so we could not take advantage of the pool on our terrace. It was a shame because the inside of the villa was wonderful and spacious with tons of closet space. We were lucky that a couple of days later a sunset villa freed up and we moved. That was a real treat. The Amilla has an excellent choice of dining options: Japanese, Indian, Italian and a themed buffet. The food was consistently excellent and the service outstanding. The diving center is well staffed – all professional, friendly and highly qualified. The tennis pro, Marcus, is fully dedicated and is kind enough to play on the sunny side of the court while the other side is under the shade (before 11am!). The spa team is also great. We booked three 90-minute massages during our 12 day stay – that’s how good they were. The rooms are very comfortable, the AC is quiet and effective, the TV connects to your device and the bathroom products (Aesop) are fantastic. The room also includes a number of adapters for electronic devices as well sun screen. Induction charging for phones is also available by each bedside. The WiFi throughout the resort is outstanding. It’s hard not to continue gushing about Amilla. The combination of excellent management and the beauty of the island really stand out. And the most valuable asset of the Amilla is the staff. A special shout-out to Jupiter, Jambe, Lisa, Ahmad (best beach manager ever), Victoria, Marcus, the dive center crew and the spa team. And of course to Jason who leads by example and sets the tone from the top. Thank you all for making our stay memorable. We hope to be back soon.

On our honeymoon in French Polynesia, my husband and I made a goal to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary in the Maldives – and made that dream a reality this year when we stayed at Amilla for 10 days this year. We've been fortunate to travel to many incredible places in our years together, but this was the farthest either of us have ever been from our home in the USA: our biggest adventure yet. After reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor and on Google, we had high expectations of Amilla, and were amazed when the team there exceeded every. single. one. After a lot of thought and research, we chose to stay at Amilla because of the house reef (snorkeling was a big priority for us), the options for excursions, the gorgeous over water villas, the wildlife and jungle feel of the island, and the many food options. We worked with a travel agent to book our trip, who I found here on TripAdvisor and who has visited Amilla several times, so we were thrilled to get the inside scoop from someone who had first-hand experience (check out Laura Husson of Totally Laura Travels – she is amazing and SO knowledgable about the Maldives and Amilla!) I can't stress enough that Amilla's staff don't miss a beat, and you'll experience their over-the-top and personalized service from the minute you arrive at Male airport. We landed in Male and were immediately blown away by the resort's airport lounge and the kindness of the staff from the first interaction. The lounge itself was absolutely stunning and had all the amenities we could dream of after our long journey, including coffee, tea, snacks, and a shower, along with gorgeous views of the seaplanes and beyond. When we arrived at the resort after our seaplane and boat ride, we were greeted with an incredible welcome from the staff, and whisked away in a personalized buggy by our Katheeb, Bella, for a tour of the island, signature Amilla coconuts in-hand. This was a true pinch-me moment. The views were stunning and we immediately felt at home. During our 10 day stay at Amilla, we were in a super luxurious reef villa. We chose the villa so we would have easy access to the house reef whenever we wanted to explore the underwater life. The space was massive and even more beautiful than the photos! We were welcomed with champagne, fresh fruit, and some treats upon arrival, and every day, our villa seemed to be immediately stocked and freshened up magically by our attentive room manager, Mehedi. Not only that, but we came back to our villa on several evenings to sweet surprises, including gorgeous artwork outside our door and over-the-top bed decorations that we are still talking about! We spent a lot of time exploring Amilla's island and taking advantage of all of the amenities the resort has to offer. We opted for the highest level all inclusive package, and enjoyed that as much as we could. The restaurants on the island are all delicious, but we especially enjoyed the cuisine at East, Feeling Koi, and of course the never-ending breakfast buffet at Fresh. Don't miss Maldivian Night – the food and entertainment is exceptional! We wish we had access to the fresh fish, produce, and delicious curries that Amilla had to offer here at home. They grow much of their produce on-site, which was a huge perk! We thoroughly enjoyed several trips to the gorgeous Javuu Spa during our stay, trying several different types of massage and even a manicure! Javuu's team are very skilled. My husband's work takes a toll on his body, and after his first massage at Javuu, he looked like a completely new person – and he looked like a new person by the time our vacation ended thanks to the care of the Javuu team! Most memorably, we enjoyed many excursions at Amilla – and each was quite life changing. We were fortunate enough to snorkel with the mantas in Hanifaru Bay (a bucket list experience for us!) and also swim alongside colorful tropical fish, several sea turtles, reef sharks, and more. It sounds dramatic, but if you're a wildlife lover you may understand – I cried into my snorkel mask pretty much every day I was at Amilla, because the underwater views were so breathtaking and unlike anything I've ever experienced, including on our honeymoon in French Polynesia. If you love to snorkel, you absolutely have to visit Amilla. These are memories that I will truly treasure for the rest of my life, and made the entire trip absolutely unforgettable. We did experience some rainy moments while we were at Amilla, but I wouldn't allow that to discourage you from booking in late September or early October. The resort does a fantastic job of ensuring that their guests can still enjoy all the island has to offer on rainy days, and it also makes for better conditions to see the mantas! It was an exceptional time to be at Amilla because the resort wasn't full, so we often had the entire beach to ourselves and never had to worry about an excursion being full. We would book in the low season again for all of these reasons. With all of that being said, my husband Ryan and I want to extend a personal and heartfelt thank you to the many people who made our stay absolute magic, especially: - Bella, our Katheeb – you went above and beyond for us every single day, and we left Amilla feeling like we'd made a new friend in you. Thank you for the unforgettable experience you gave us and for making our anniversary beyond special. We will never forget your kindness! - Mehedi – you are creative and so detail-oriented, and your thoughtfulness made us immediately feel right at home in our Amilla villa. You anticipated our every need and made us feel really comfortable throughout our stay. Thank you so much for your hospitality! - Kauser – our BFF at Amilla! We looked forward to seeing you every day at the beach and sharing stories with you. Your positive attitude and disposition are unmatched. Thank you for making us feel so comfortable, for making us laugh, and for all the treats and goodies you shared with us throughout our stay. - Haseef – you were such an important part of our stay at Amilla, and we were blown away by how much you did to make us feel at home. Thank you for each and every meal you served us during our stay – your dedication and hard work did not go unnoticed. - Anth – we looked forward to seeing you every day at breakfast! Thank you for introducing us to banana mangoes...I'm still dreaming of them. We appreciate you so much. - Jambe and Murray – thank you for all the laughs and fun during our stay! - Lisa – we really enjoyed seeing you at the EBC most days for lunch. Thank you for being so kind and welcoming, and for going above and beyond for us! - Shamaan – you absolutely made our stay at Amilla and we will never forget you. Thank you for guiding us through incredible experiences with underwater life at Amilla and beyond, and for fulfilling my lifelong dream of snorkeling with sea turtles. You were beyond amazing and words cannot express the gratitude we feel for you and everything you did to make our Amilla stay unforgettable. I truly hope that this isn't our first and last visit to Amilla. We are dreaming of the day we can return to the island to not only have more adventures, but also to reunite with the staff who are now our dear friends. If you're considering a trip to the Maldives, we cannot recommend Amilla enough.

We have recently returned from a 11 night stay at Amilla Maldives staying in one of the Lagoon water villas. On arrival in Male we were met and escorted very promptly and efficiently to the check in for seaplane and onwards to the Amilla lounge in the new, and much improved, seaplane terminal. The Amilla lounge was comfortable and really well appointed for the short (45 minute) wait for our seaplane transfer. Showers are available for anyone with a bit more time waiting etc. For anyone who has previously the experienced the old seaplane terminal the new one really is a game changer. After a short seaplane transfer followed by an even shorter speedboat we arrived at Amilla and were met by the resort team on the jetty and our Katheeb Nappe. We were given some coconuts and cold towels, a really nice touch, and given a lift on a golf cart to our villa via a brief tour of the island and amenities. We arrived at our villa (310) which was towards the end of the jetty which was as we had requested to maximise the morning/afternoon sun and to avoid being overlooked by sunset villas. As we entered the villa our first impression was of the space available, the villas truly are massive. We have stayed in the Maldives before and whilst space could never be described as being at a premium, this villa was much bigger than we have had previously. Nice to have a whole separate ‘sitting’ room side with separate air conditioning etc. Loads of storage and wardrobe space. Handy provision of bedside lamps with wireless charging pads and also USB in the back for the obligatory go pro and gadget charging. Pool was much bigger than we had previously also, and importantly, because of its aspect, much warmer. We found that leaving the AC on in the sitting room side, was actually sufficient for the whole villa and a little quieter. A small thing on the room if really being really critical, whilst the room had a very elaborate sound system, it felt a little dated, we found it difficult (and failed to) connect our phones, a more modern, portable Sonos/B&O system would be preferrable rather than all the ceiling mounted speakers and a cupboard full of AV kit, As I say, it clearly was a decent set up, but its just that tech has moved on so much in the last ten years. Not a game changer on any front but just maybe something that could be looked at if any room investments are planned. All the villas are provided with bikes which we actually found a really fun way to navigate the island and we used them for all of our visits to the restaurants and for getting about the place, some people chose to walk, and guess if we were in a sunset villa (closer to resort) we might have but zipping about on the little bikes was fun. Nappe (our Katheeb) looked after us politely, efficiently and proactively. I don’t think we perhaps we asked quite as much of him as some guests might but any requests for dinner reservations or activities were always met. I like the whatsapp system as well, far easier than having to call reception to make arrangements and whole resort pretty much had WIFI coverage. Yousef our housekeeper was lovely and friendly, and after a few days of syncing our routines where he realised that we didn’t go for breakfast but that I was often diving in the morning and my wife was at the gym, he would clean and replenish room amenities whilst we were away and we would often return to find a new palm leaf creation on the bed. Same in the evenings where we would generally eat a little later than most people I think. We would meet him coming up the boardwalk with a smile. Villa was always immaculate and he clearly took pride in his work without being obtrusive to our routine, the perfect balance, congratulations. All the service staff were always friendly and approachable. The nature of the island is pretty laid back, it’s what we personally want in an island, but maybe sometimes, some of the staff were a little too far on the laid back scale, and you had to make just that little bit too much effort to get their attention. We would never want fussy service and someone sat on our shoulder, and having worked in service industry for a long time, I recognise it’s a fine balance to get right, but given that the island was relatively quiet, I would have thought they might have just been a little more ‘on’ it. I would have my concerns if the resort was at capacity, but maybe once they are it almost becomes easier. I went diving with the team at Dive Butler on 5 mornings. Sadly the Manta’s had departed early this year so no sightings of them but the diving was still nice. Nice small groups on the days I went out, well appointed boat and decent kit. I was well looked after by Alex my DM. We went snorkelling quite a bit on the reef by the blue hole near our villa, but we actually found the best spot was off the jetty near the spa, saw lots of black tips there and occasional ray swimming past. Quite nice in the morning to see the small sharks herding the fish into the shallow. We specifically chose Amilla as the restaurants are all a la carte (evening) as we are definitely not fans of buffets. We were also not seeking gimmicky things like underwater dining etc, each to their own, but in our experience they have lacked some substance beyond the theatre of the venue. Lunchtime our preference was probably for Emperor Beach Club (EBC) we liked the lobster wraps, bao buns and taco’s, though Pizzas at Feeling chilled were also good, I particularly liked the Maldivian my wife the truffle one, she is Gluten free and it was nice that they were able to deliver GF base without issue. Only thing we found was that the menu was perhaps a little too similar fundamentally between the 2 lunch offerings. Maybe could introduce few more oriental dishes to EBC to differentiate it somewhat. Worst thing with EBC was the fly’s, as humidity was high, with the rain we had (out of Amilla’s control obviously) there were always lots of fly’s and Mosi’s. Staff were keen for us to sit inside to avoid this, but on the occasion we did sit inside, we were only ones doing so and found the room a little lifeless and felt a bit empty, also when you spend your life eating indoors, its nice to be outside on your holidays. Maybe a bit more pest fogging is needed? Appreciate the environmental trade-offs that go with that procedure however and that in trying to be as sustainable as possible it maybe doesn’t sit right. We ate at Feeling Koi on probably 4 or even 5 of our nights as we really enjoy sashimi/sushi and it is difficult to access where we live in the country. The sushi was of a very high standard with lots of choice which was a real treat. We had the sea bass and black cod for main course, but beyond these were a little uninspired further with mains so ended up having more sushi/sashimi on return visits. Its fine with us as we are fans of sushi, but maybe worth considering if you aren’t. We were also told in the downstairs restaurant that they were out of anything but house sake (which I’m afraid to say wasn’t the best) but later found out from another guest that they had the better grade cold sake upstairs in the sunset bar and that they had been brought down some on request and among their AI budget. Barolo was nice – good Tuna steak and pasta dishes. Not necessarily our favourite as cuisine easily accessible at home but each to their own. East was very good – we enjoyed a couple of meals there had great curries and tandoor food. We also went to the Maldivian night and sampled the buffet which was good with plenty of choice, avoid the red chutney however, its ferocious! We enjoyed the dancers at Maldivian night, was at least some link up to the local area which sometimes you can become a little unconnected with on these islands, it was also nice that Amilla arranged excursions to nearby inhabited islands (we didn’t participate so can’t comment). Had pre and post dinner cocktails most evenings. By end of our trip the guys in Baa Bar had our drinks order nailed on. Good cocktails in the sunset bar above feeling Koi also. The fire dancer was good – only thing we found a bit strange was the scheduling and then in following on from that the positioning of the act. The act was always outside the BAA bar but was normally on when most people were eating/finishing dinner so was seen very few people, if he moved along the beach a little, to say beach side of pool, more people would have seen the act whilst having dinner, or maybe schedule it for after dinner, say 9 or 9.30 and then may encourage people to the bar after dinner for a drink, it often felt a little lifeless post dinner. On the whole we enjoyed the food at Amilla but were perhaps not blown away by it. We have been fortunate enough to stay in a number of excellent resorts around the world and sample some amazing food, Amilla was really good but maybe not world class. Sadly – we did have one major negative with Amilla and I guess in particular our villa, though anyone renting a sunset or lagoon should be aware of it. On our penultimate full day we spotted resort staff moving a platform to nearby the blue hole on the edge of the house reef and end of snorkelling zone. I assumed that it was some sort of snorkelling or diving platform for the blue hole so I swam out to it. To my alarm when I got there I realised that it was not a snorkel platform but they had moved the seaplane jetty. This jetty was now within 3/400 metres of our villa. I fully appreciate that the seaplanes need to land somewhere, but this should not have been placed right in front of the lagoon/sunset villas, every other resort we have stayed in the jetty was on the opposite side of island to villas, or much further out to sea. Every time a plane landed (circa 4 a day) the people standing on the jetty were looking straight into our villa and then obviously on take off the associated plane noise was pretty obtrusive. Worse still was that this jetty seemed to service every other island in the vicinity for those few days so once the plane landed you had speedboats arriving and departing with guests. I messaged Fappe our butler about it and he said he would speak to the managers, they did offer to move us to one of the reef villas on the opposite side of the jetty, but we had specifically chosen the lagoon villa because of its aspect and we only had 2 nights and 1 full day left so we stayed where we were. A number of other guests who we had met during our stay were commenting on the jetty position for those last few nights, yet everyone had been told something different about why it was moved (airline request due to choppy seas, seasonal schedule) which seems suspicious. The map we looked at on booking didn’t show the jetty being located there (we wouldn’t have booked it), a subsequent map we have been shown does show ‘seaplane landing strip’ but no jetty pictured and the scale is definitely incorrect, the strip and jetty are much closer to the villas than map shows. No pictures on the resort gallery show the jetty in that position either. Far too close in my opinion for $1000 a night room. If this is important to you, I would certainly suggest that you check with the resort where the jetty is going to be at time of your stay, it now seems that it’s a seasonal change and that it will remain in that position now for some time. We landed on the old jetty at the opposite side of the island and for the majority of the week when it was there never even heard a seaplane, when it moved it was liking being in the seaplane terminal at Male. We certainly wouldn’t have booked a sunset or lagoon villa had we known that the jetty was going to be in that position, fortunately it was only for the last few days of our stay but had it been there the whole time we would have been really disappointed. On our return to Male, the service was equally slick, met at seaplane terminal, taken to lounge as we were too early for international terminal, bags kept in vehicle, then escorted right through to check in desk by ground staff. A really good top notch service from Amilla groundcrew on both arrival and departure. On the whole we had a really lovely time at Amilla, we have come back fully charged and refreshed after a lovely break on a tropical island. The seaplane jetty just took the shine off the holiday for us, which was shame.

Everything was incredible-excellent service and exceptional organization from the moment we arrived until our departure. The staff was so warm and thoughtful. The water villa was perfect decorated (thank you for lovely decorations and sweets for our anniversary). We were able to step off our deck into the water to snorkel on that stunning reef - so wonderful! Restaurants dishes were fabulous, too. Thank you for our great stay!

We thought the whole week was magical, the staff were really attentive, our katheeb Buddy was just the right balance of supportive without being intrusive. The reef villa was huge and comfortable, and the access to the reef was unbelievable. We spent way more time in the water snorkelling than we thought we would, sometimes getting in three snorkelling sessions in a day from various points around the island. (Our first time at Amilla, and our first time in the Maldives - so take this from a Maldives newbie perspective, but from someone with a decent amount of high-end accommodation in Asia and elsewhere.) ARRIVAL The Amilla experience starts the moment you land at Malé Airport, where an Amilla rep is waiting for you the moment you exit Customs, and in our case the seaplane was departing imminently so he rushed us through the seaplane checkin and got us in the Amilla van straightaway over to the seaplane terminal, where in short order we were boarding the Manta Air seaplane that delivered us after 35 mins or so to the Amilla pontoon, from there we boarded the Amilla speedboat to take us around to the harbour. Even from the start we could see how lush and unspoiled the island was. When we got to the pier, Narelle the GM and several staff were there to welcome us. We were given some coconut drinks, shown to our golf cart (with our names on) and introduced to our katheeb (butler/fixer) named Buddy, who gave us a quick tour of the island before heading out over the jetty towards the reef villas on the northwest tip of the island. We arrived at our villa 126 at the very end that we had requested in advance (for reasons that will be explained) and Buddy let us in and showed us around. It was huge! GENERAL VIBE Jungly, not too built-up. Laidback. Not bling. Lazy bike rides everywhere. Bats flying through the trees. Largely felt uninhabited except at mealtimes. Elegantly classy without being stuffy. Maybe slightly disjointed in terms of guest interactions, but maybe that's just the Maldives for you. THE ROOM Everything you could ask for. So much space in a reef villa. Separate living and sleeping quarters. Unimaginable amounts of cupboard and storage space everywhere. Power sockets everywhere you would want them. Big comfortable bed. Individual AC in each section. Total privacy - especially being at the end, we were mostly completely unaware of any other guests in the vicinity. A couple of loose floorboards here and there, but nothing more troubling than that. THE DECK A decent-sized deck with table, sunbeds, a larger daybed, an umbrella, a shower, the infinity pool and of course with the steps down to the reef and only 20-30m to the reef dropoff, we knew we'd be doing some epic snorkelling. Because we had requested room 126 at the end, we had an uninterrupted view of the sea to the west of us, which we took full advantage of over a number of gorgeous Maldivian sunsets. THE STAFF Overall a great experience. Bearing in mind that I don't think we asked as much of our Katheeb Buddy as much as other guests might do, he was very responsive when we did need him and very chilled out and friendly. He proactively booked stuff for us, and gave us guidance on snorkelling spots - even took us out snorkelling with him on the last day. He was unobtrusive, not obsequious but available when required and interested in our happiness and welfare. From the other staff: Raya was always very sweet to us when we dined down by the pool, always a happy interaction. Aditya too always radiated positivity and helpfulness. Naf was amazing doing her descriptions of the Maldivian food and taking her time with us. Lesley was always up for a good chat and making sure to look after us. I can't recall the name of the Indian chap at the Baa Bar but he was invariably friendly as well. Waxy and Ahmed in the snorkel excursions were really helpful guides. Housekeeping: Unobtrusive but magical in the sense that anytime we popped out for more than an hour or two, something new seemed to get done to the room. Loved the little treats in the evenings when we returned from dinner. THE WEATHER We were fairly lucky it seems, with a shower on the first day, one on the last day, and a whole lot of sunshine in between. I have seen others complain that the weather was too rough for them to snorkel, but we mostly could go in whenever we wanted. THE SNORKELLING The reef was great. We had great visibility on the northwest side of the island. Saw reef sharks, nurse sharks, eagle rays, green and hawksbill turtles, morays, and lots of "fish soup" schools. Lots of parrotfish and the odd titan triggerfish. We loved it so much and being able to just nip in for a quick half hour from the back deck of the villa was sensationally good. We loved our expeditions too - the Blue Hole trip showed us that actually we could snorkel over to it from our villa, which we did repeatedly, and the one that went out on the boat to the islands and reefs south of us was great too. The coral and fish life on the submerged atoll to the south was outstanding. THE FOOD Overall trending to positive, but maybe not amazing. Breakfast buffet was great - lots of variety to suit your mood. The pastries were top-class and the coconut ones as well as the chocolate passionfruit were stellar. Decent enough hot options including waffles, eggs cooked to order etc. Lunch options: Mostly decent enough without being outstanding. I would say Chill'd just edges Emperor Beach Club in quality, but there is not much in it. Highlights were tuna poke bowl, the ethical burger, the club sandwich, the pad thai. The "Maldivian fried chicken" at the EBC was a bit stodgy. The maki rolls at Chill'd slightly reminded me of supermarket sushi compared to the great ones at Feeling Koi. Generally across both places I thought the fries were undercooked on multiple occasions. Dinners: Standouts for us were the Maldivian night - some great curries - and East especially the tikka dishes. Found Barolo fine but not excellent. Mixed feelings about Feeling Koi as the sushi/sashimi standard was very good, but I felt the mains lacked imagination and had a slightly basic interpretation of Japanese food. Where are the ramens, the soba, the udon, okonomiyaki, tonkatsu, katsu curry etc? I love a bit of chicken teriyaki but it seems sort of 1990s version of Japanese food. Even a Wagamama in the UK would have a more advanced vision of Japanese food than FK. As longtime fans of Japanese food, I think this could have been a lot better. IMPROVEMENTS: Whilst we were very happy with our stay overall, we had a couple points of improvement: - Not sure what can be done about it, but the general ambience around the pool at dinner time lacked something. It seemed quite dead even at 60% occupancy. Same with the bars. - I would have thought that some of the evening entertainment e.g. the fire show would have made more sense to position where the diners were rather than in front of an empty bar - One of the reasons we picked Amilla was because of the food choice and the general quality of the food. We were expecting to be blown away and I don't think we had more than 1 or 2 "OMG" moments. We might be expecting too much of a menu catering for such a wide customer base II guess, but I kind of expected more. - Our villa 126 was fabulous, maybe needed a few touches of rejuvenation here and there. There were a number of loose / wobbly floorboards in the bar area, and the decking outside had begun to come apart a bit, only just avoided splinters a few times. These were minor niggles though in light of an overall really happy time!

This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Everyone from the Butler to the diving instructors to the yoga instructor was extremely friendly, kind, and patient. The food is definitely a hidden gem. Everything was top-notch from the arrival experience to the Internet to the dive. Although the island was “busy “, I never once had issues with a busy restaurant or a busy bar. It was very peaceful thank you everyone

Excellent service - especially with the daily house keeping, Mehdi in particular was super attentive and a real ‘value add’ to our stay. Very professional and thorough whilst taking the time to put a personal touch on things, like folding towels into animals and leaving arrangements on the bed.
