The Residence Maldives at Falhumaafushi is a world away from reality. This private island resort is anchored in one of the planet’s widest and deepest atolls, its sugary white sands lapped by sapphire blue waters, its pristine reefs the exclusive playground of its privileged guests. All 94 luxury villas lie on the beach or over the water, their traditional Maldivian architecture enhanced by anything from dedicated butlers to private pools. Dining is an international affair overlooking the Indian Ocean, The Spa by Clarins the only one you’ll find in the entire Maldives archipelago...

Visited this place with my friend and totally recommend it to single friends who want to travel together, not just couples. The place is incredibly beautiful, cycled to our breakfast every morning, crossing the bridge between the two islands and stopping to see baby sharks and pretty fish along the way. The freshly baked cookies delivered to your room every afternoon literally melt your heat. Staff was very friendly and the facilities were great, including the best massage I had in ages. My back was very grateful for all the care. I personally really appreciated al the help from the sports center who took us to see amazing corals, raced us on the jet ski and told us about local culture ( and climate change!). DJ Sanjeeva got us moving on the dance floor and played our favorite songs every night, I cannot express how happy I was to dance again after so long. Thank you all, will be back!

It is quite a long journey to reach there but once you are welcomed by very hospitable ever smiling and friendly crew we have forgot the long journey. The Residence staff were incredibly friendly, kind and attentive to giving guest a relaxed and memorable time. Chaiti, Chef balram, Hafiz and few others. We had sun rise water villas with pool in each room. From our bed we could see the sun rise and ocean together. The rooms were clean and big compared to other hotels. The sea was clean we saw baby shark, stingray and many more fishes from our room jetty. The food was a good spread they made good vegetation food also wen we asked for it. The massage in the spa was the icing on the cake of the trip. I can't recommend this resort enough. THE RESIDENCE fulfilled all of our expectations and more.

The Residence of Maldives far outweighed our expectations. Ambiance and hospitality was beyond our expectation. We stayed 8days and all 8days was great. the staff treated us as royalties. My hubby and I fell inlove over again. Maldives is filled with love, peace and serenity.

Visiting the Maldives has never really been on our radar, simply because we didn't think there would be enough to do. How wrong we were! Yes, it is a slightly longer journey to get to The Residence Al Dhigurah but we were looked after from the second we were met at Male airport by a company representative. Hand on heart, I don't think any resort or hotel in the world has made us feel this welcome or special before now. This is all down to the wonderfully warm, genuinely kind staff on the island. Every single waiter/ waitress/ bartender, Xaviar at the dive centre, Adam at the water sports centre, DJ San on the decks, housekeeping, front of house , gardeners. Basically the WHOLE TEAM. We stayed in a deluxe sunset villa and loved it. You can choose to be as active/chilled as you wish. If you practice yoga, bring your mat and take it out onto your private poolside deck, in addition to the onsite yoga sessions. Complimentary SUPs & kayaks, a really decent gym. Incredibly quiet Jet skis, beautiful snorkelling. Each villa comes with bikes to make getting around the island easier and more fun. It was a bonus that the restaurants/ beach bars on the sister island were open too! We stayed for 5 nights in mid March and truly did not want to leave. Already planning our return visit.

Stayed at this resort for four nights, two nights in beach villa and two nights in sunrise water villa, Dhigurah...enjoyed each and every corner, every moment and every fasciitis... number one hospitality... staff serves smile with every order.. well appointed rooms with huge bathroom and private pool. Amazing view of sea and sky from every room... fast service... immaculate.... food ok ... some dishes superb...but very good spread... lots of variety of Indian cuisine... twice had food in beach bar, Falhumaafushi... Italian food, Biryani and deserts were superb... fantastic view of sea... no word can describe the beauty... My son in law and grand son went for scuba diving, they found it just out of the world. Went for sunset cruise, spotted so many dolphins. Ambiance at Beach Club was superb... great infinity pool, very happening place. Lush green to rejuvenate you..Actually it’s difficult to describe what my eyes saw and heart felt ... taking all precautions against pandemic...Carrying so many beautiful cherish able memories with me. Would love to come again and again. Only one suggestion.. should have more buggies... sometimes they take time to come.
