The island is small but very well organized; the sun deck one side, with few steps from a wonderful and very close to the resort house reef. A splendid beach on the other side giving the name to the resort (Ranveli means White Sands). From my point of view, the best way to live the Maldives; comfortable, clean but no...

Let me apologize in adv for the long review, but you will find helpful tips within so keep reading. This island has only 54 rooms which at high season still felt like we had the entire beach to ourself. There is plenty of space and you will feel the tranquility believe me. If you are on honeymoon, birthday, couples visit...

its location allows for a number of diving and snorkelling adventures and hosts a well informed and well trained diving team to help you with it. Other than for the wifi - which is available only in the common areas; the services provided are of high standards with a very helpful and accommodating staff. Lovely for relaxation and getaways!

When you read reviews on Ranveli there is a range of opinions. Here's my take on why: When we first arrived there were 10 people vacationing on the island. We loved it, We had our own island all to ourselves. I believe the island can hold just over 150 guests. However, it does change the experience: The first 2 days...
