Myself and new husband spent 10 days at the Riu Atoll staying in a superior watervilla… wow is all I can say this island is far from boring with lots going on all the time. The staff are an amazing asset to Riu front the room cleaners, to restaurant and bar staff to the fantastic entertainment team. It was great to see some of the staff that we had met at the Riu Sri Lanka back in 2019 and equally was an amazing holiday… this island is really a picture from a brochure and we had no faults at all. They only thing I wish is that we were back there right now… btw watervilla msg on the sunset side are the best you get to listen to the sunset dj on the beach with a drink in hand on the Bali bed on you villa, just amazing

My wife and I have just spent 11 nights at Riu Atoll, and it did not disappoint. Besides being in an idilic location, the staff were incredibly friendly, working so hard to meet your every need. Members of staff who really stood were Shihaam and Udara, who were absolutely amazing and are a real credit to the hotel. Our room, the facilities, food, drinks and everything on offer made for an incredible honeymoon and holiday experience. Would recommend this hotel highly to anyone who is looking to visit the Maldives!
