Constance Halaveli is absolute paradise.
We stayed there from 8Sep to 13 Sep.
The location is just soo beautiful. Clear blue waters, pure white sands will just blow your mind.
One of the main positives about Constance Halaveli are its people over there. Each and every staff in Constance Halaveli are just so wonderful. They greeted us with a smile every time they saw us which is just awesomely pleasing.
We stayed in the water villa with private pool and the villa was 5 star. It was so beautiful.
After having a wonderful experience with Constance Halaveli I personally
was very eager to write the review.
It’s just toooo good. Everything is soo good about Constance Halaveli. We would definitely visit again.
We personally would like to thank the management, staff and everybody related to Constance Halaveli for giving us a wonderful, unforgettable & a beautiful experience.

Most of the islands you will find in the Maldives have a minimal numbers of resorts, some two or three and yet many with just one. This is an island with a single and small resort, so the whole feel of the place is amazingly intimate. At breakfast, you would generally see the same 15 or so faces, so the buffet isn’t packed with people and it generally feels extremely relaxed. Dinners at one of the three restaurants are also calm and leisurely. This all makes this place a perfect couples destination, honeymoon or romantic break away - this is definitely not a family resort, so exactly as marketed and what we were seeking in a holiday.

Our water villa with pool was beautiful. The room is well positioned in size and has fantastic wardrobe space, which we really appreciated - neither of us carries light! The deck is small, but pool spacious - this suited us fine as Maldives weather is consistently hot, so very happy to remain in the water!

The massive positive about this resort was the all inclusive package and how this was set up. Having investigated other packages in the Maldives - don’t underestimate how important this is and the impact it can have to your overall costs, plus the quality of what you receive. Some key things to note here: 1. you are not limited to the number of times you can eat at any one restaurant (which can happen at other resorts) 2. an extremely decent wine list is provided to you at dinner where you can select a whole bottle in your package, just like you would as a guest paying for each meal (again, other resorts may offer wine by the glass and often limited options) 3. mini bar drinks are included on a daily allowance basis.

The food experienced here was consistently delicious at every single meal. Again, the all inclusive menus are extensive and include most higher ticket price items, so there really leaves no need to go off menu given the options available. Waiters in both al la carte restaurants remembered our wine choices and did not mind if we sat in the bar after dinner until late.

On the surface when costing up a week here in comparison to other resorts, this appears on the higher side. Yet the the levels of choice / quality you receive, coupled with the lack of needing to spend anything more, actually gives you a better value trip in the Maldives.

For all of these reasons combined, we felt like we could truly relax, throw away our wallets for a week and relax in our beautiful water villa - totally uninterrupted, no stress and with everything we needed. What more could you want for?

Room Tip: Beautiful water villas with pools

This is our second visit to Constance Halaveli and even knowing the level the team manage to exceed by far our high expectations. Being a family Kids club was very important for us and the fab three Marie, Mua and Gigit didn't let us down. Our kids could not wait for the club to open. The day is full of activities therefore the kids never get bored. The food is outstanding in every single outlet providing the local freshed fish combined with an Italian, Asian and International twist. During our second stay we where also suprised by the level of the cocktails, amazing mixologist Gupta every day was able to surprise us with something exciting and unique. The resort is in an immaculate condition, the landscaping team manage to keep the resort in pristine condition in a very discrete way. Unfortunately we only stayed for 4 nights.

Date of stay: 05-20 August
weather conditions:
Wonderful weather for rainy season, only 1 day of rain, 10 days of beautiful weather and 5 days of alternating sun and clouds.

Arrival Male airport:
When we entered the departure hall, we were immediately taken care of by a representative of the hotel who arranged for the check-in at TMA (seaplane) and then transferred to the Lodge of Constance at the airport. This lodge was very comfortable (air conditioning) and snacks and drinks were provided. After 45 minutes we were taken to the seaplane.

Transfert seaplane:
It went very smoothly and was comfortable despite the limited space and lack of air conditioning. We had one stopover and the flight took about 35 minutes. With the return flight the hotel ensures that everything is perfect again, one can wait again in the airport lodge until the departure of the international flight and the hotel staff ensures a smooth check-in

Arrival Halaveli:
On arrival we were taken care of by Laila and her reception staff who ensured a smooth check-in with a refreshing drink. Despite an early arrival the room was already available and after a guided tour with the necessary explanation on the island we were brought to our room by Rachel (guest relation). There was a bottle of champagne with canapes waiting for us.

Rooms:
I traveled with my wife and our 19-year-old son and we had chosen to stay the first 5 days in a water villa and the rest of the stay in a beach villa.
Water villa:
Located on an 800 meter long jetty. Entrance hall with left bedroom, right bathroom in front terrace. The bedroom is spacious enough with a large bed (very comfortable) and a salon whose seat was furnished as a bed for our son (also comfortable). Despite this extra bed, there was still enough room. Large flat screen TV with plenty of channels, PC and movies on demand and a well stocked minibar and wine cooler. The bathroom is very spacious with double sinks, large bath, separate shower and toilet and 2 dressings. Terrace with small private pool and quality furniture. Stairs to the sea where you can find wonderful places to snorkel in a few meters (depth of sea to villa +/- 2 meters).
Beach villa:
We stayed in a double storey beach villa. This is very spacious with private garden and swimming pool. Ground floor with very spacious bedroom (with the same comfort as in a water villa), large dressing room. The bathroom is open air with a large bath, double sink and separate toilet and shower. On the upper floor there is a large bedroom with 2 beds, flat screen TV and own minibar. There is also an additional bathroom with sink, shower and toilet. The garden offers plenty of privacy and has loungers in the front, at the back and on the beach.
Both villas are very comfortable and beautifully decorated, they are cleaned twice a day and all necessary is provided.

Beach:
Beautiful white sand beach that is perfectly maintained. Very calm sea and little coral waste. Wonderful for snorkeling with a lot of marine life in the immediate vicinity. Beach villas have their own sunbeds and for the residents of the water villas there are plenty of extra sunbeds in the vicinity of the pool. There are also plenty of sun loungers at the large swimming pool. Towels on the beach are regularly replaced.

Restaurants / Bars:
There are 3 restaurants, a sushi bar and 2 bars on the island. Sameera Karunaratne, which is present in all restaurants from breakfast to dinner, ensures that the restaurants bring the level of the island to a 5 * +. The chefs and the service are of absolute top level.

Jahaz:
Buffet restaurant with theme changed every evening (Italian, European, Asian, Japanese, Indian Ocean, Middle East, Seafood). Breakfast buffet with very wide choice and lunch a la carte or buffet. Everything is very well maintained and always fresh. Quality is top and restaurant level and certainly not comparable with the classic hotel buffets. Mohamed Rasheed and his team, Aleksandra, Dewi, Irene, Nadia, Rika, Yui and top sommelier Nora provide the excelent service. The Jahaz bar is located at the swimming pool and open all day until 1 am. the cocktails from Dilya and her colleagues are delicious

Meeru:
Gril restaurant on the beach with, Dewi as the perfect hostess, where you can eat a la carte, plenty of choice and delicious food in a beautiful setting.

Jing:
Restaurant on the jetty in a very beautiful setting. Choice of a la carte or a number of menus. Quality and presentation where many star restaurants may be jealous. In this restaurant, Irene, together with Nadia, Hassan, Shadid and sommelier Medu, ensures perfection.. Jing has his own bar with a very wide range, just like in the Jahaz bar.

Surroundings:
Beautifully maintained island and little or no problems with insects. Breakwaters are certainly not disturbing and do their job perfectly. A lot of marine life in the immediate vicinity of the beach.

Sport:
Very good diving club with very good operation. Well-equipped fitness with Alyona as the perfect (tennis) coach.

Staff members
This is the absolute asset of the hotel. All employees are absolutely top-notch from the gardeners to the general manager. Everyone clearly knows their job and there is always someone approachable. If a problem does arise somewhere (and that happens very rarely) this is immediately resolved.
The island is beautiful but the staff make it exceptional and are the main reason to return. Thanks everyone!!

My wife and I are so glad we chose Constance Halaveli as our resort for our holiday in the Maldives. The island is a beautiful paradise in the middle of the ocean. A great amount of white sand beach stretches on multiple sides of the island and you're surrounded by amazing crystal clear (pool like) water all around. Not too many heavy waves so you can have a good time bathing in the sea. The resort offered plenty of amenities (pool, spa, dive center, water sports, boutique shop, kids area, etc...).

There were a total of 3 restaurants on the resort. 1 was buffet style available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The other 2 were dinner only and required reservations and more a la carte style. The all-inclusive package (which was well worth it) allows you to eat at all of the restaurants (some dishes not included however there are plenty of good options). The food was fresh and delicious. The all inclusive package also allowed you to enjoy a wide variety of cocktails and items from your in room mini bar.

Non-motorized vehicles for water sports were free of charge. You were also allowed to pick up snorkeling gear from the dive center throughout your stay. If you're into snorkeling, an abundance of sea life awaits you all around (baby reef sharks, barracudas, rays, turtles, etc...). There are also scheduled excursions daily via the dive center (some are included in your all-inclusive package and others you can pay to go on).

Above everything else, the SERVICE WAS SPECTACULAR. Both my wife and I agreed, we've never had such great service anywhere else around the globe. The staff will go above and beyond to make your stay perfect and treat you with nothing but smiles and kindness. The hotel also offers buggy (golf cart) service all around the resort if you don't feel like walking from place to place.

If you're planning on going to The Maldives, I would highly recommend you stay at Constance Halaveli!
