We flew out at the end of March. The weather was perfect the whole stay, with only 2 rain showers at night and were a welcome relief. The boat was kept company by dolphins and flying fish on the journey to and from the island. Our arrival was pain free, greeted with a cocktail and luggage taken to the room....

We returned from Embudu yesterday and I decided to get this info on straight away. I was checking tripadvisor daily before I went and you get a very good overview of the Island. This was my 3rd trip to the maldives having previously visited Meeru and Summer Island. This is by far my favourite and if I had to choose...

I stayed at embudu from 26/11/07 - 03/12/07. On arrival at male airport we were whisked away on a traditional maldivian dhoni boat by members of the staff waiting for us. The transfer takes about 45 mins to 1 hour to reach the island. On our way there we were accompanied by several different groups of dolphins swimming and jumping...

The first time we went to the Maldives, we went to Embudu Village. It's a perfect place to enjoy the wonderful world of the Maldives without spending too much money. The hotel is a more basic island but it was great! We stayed in the beach bungalows with airconditioning. Loved to walk straight out of our room and onto the...

“Rooms from 10 to 30 are the best. Rooms 1-10 tend to be a bit noisier. Larger numbers bungalows and hotel rooms I would not reccomend.”
