We stayed at this hotel for two weeks during February on an all inclusive basis. We have been to a number of beach resorts around the world and this is the worst. We choose this hotel because of the good reports on Trip Advisor. From landing at Male it took us 6 hours to get to the hotel . Leaving...

Equator village resort is such a lovely hotel. All the staff are so friendly and helpful, the whole atmosphere is brilliant. The food is delicious, and the chefs are so proud of their food. The hotel is really clean, with everything you need. The hotel is right on the beach, which isn't huge but it's quiet and just beautiful. We...

I was based at the Equator Village in 2001 for a year while working for the airline Ocean Air. Even in those days the hotel was great, nice gardens surrounding the chalets , and large swimming pool with bar service. The food was typically Asian and very tasty. The hotel and rooms were very clean and well kept and the...

We've spend 10 days in a total relax, including a lot of activities - swimming, diving, snorkeling, do bicycles, islands hopping tour, had a BBQ on a small island, visited a local village. The village is great, nice gardens, amazing ocean views, big pool, nice restaurant, small but cozy bar. The...

The best hotel in Maldives! I had amazing experiences to be a guest there. The best service- every one was so nice, smiley and polite, so lovely people. The food was incredible and diverse.

Beside it is named a resort, we enjoyed the private character of the hotel. It doesn’t take long to feel home even so...

I last visited Equator Village in 2009 (there is no option for pre-2106, so I selected August 2016, although I was there in August of 2009). It was one of several places I stayed. The advantage to staying on Gan is that it is one of the few places in the Maldives, outside the crowded capital city of Male, where...

Equator Village is best hotel in town for a B2B meeting. The Manager is very experienced and exceptionally helpful and the staff are friendly and always ready to help. Very happy with the service of the most experienced hospitality brand in Addu City.
