I agree with the positive reviews about Fuvahmulah and Viluxer Retreat. My husband and I spent 9 days at the Viluxer and I can sum up the experience for the both of us as being "a very memorable and unique experience". The welcome from the staff from the pick up at the airport to when you get to the retreat is first class. You are made to fell at home and treated so special that you want to stay longer. It is very unique to the commercialised resort experience. If you are going for a honeymoon to spend quality time with each other, need some lazy quite time and get first class treatment while in the Maldives Viluxer Retreat in Fvuvahmulah is a place I would recommend. The chef is great you don't have to look at the clock and worry about the kitchen closing before you have your breakfast, Lunch or dinner. You can come down at your leisure for your meals. Thank you to all the staff members at the Viluxer for making our trip memorable. Hope to see you again sometime in the future Insha-Allah. Enjoy Fau & Moh

In line with the other reviews, I can't agree more. Fuvamulah is an amazingly diverse island with stunning scenery and the most friendly people in the Maldives. And the best part is that you can stay in style at Viluxer Retreat. This is a beautiful, well-appointed guest house with a great chef and all the personal attention you can wish for. This is a very afforable holiday with a difference.

Living and working more than 25years in Maldives, we have been overwhelmed by the visit of Fuvamulah! The island -as an atoll- with the different beaches, the fresh water lakes and its friendly people is gorgeous. Our guest house, the Villuxer retreat, was a big surprise: the warm welcome, the high standard and tasteful interior of the rooms, the very friendly, highly motivated staff made our 5 days stay unforgettable. We highly recommend sharing our experience on this local island away from main tourism to everybody. Thanks again to the Villuxer team and all the people we met!! Dagmar and Paul, Thulhagiri the 13th of August

Fuvahmulah200 contributions11 helpful votes
I am reluctant to write a review.. I want to keep the place secret so no one goes and they will never be full and I can go whenever I please. I was told to delete everything I saw before in Maldives and for the two days I was there.. I did. Having lived in the country a while, I have seen resorts from 3* to 5*+, I have seen local islands, guest houses, Male’ and its surrounding islands and I cannot compare Fuvahmulah to anything I have seen here in Maldives. It is, as they say ‘Uniquely Different’. I traveled alone and felt perfectly safe, I can’t agree with the comment that the staff are more focused on Honeymooners and couples. Flights are now twice daily, some via Gan, I flew with Flyme and as always cannot fault the service. The flight was approximately 1hr and as you approach Fuvahmulah you understand the one island, one atoll concept. There is literally nothing around. You can’t see other resorts, local islands with communication masts, it’s completely isolated and in the middle of nowhere. I think this explains the community feel on the island. They have to rely on each other and be self sufficient. The welcome I received was ‘Welcome Home’ and I am already planning to be welcomed back home before the end of the year. The staff are a strong team, they are all from 5 star resort backgrounds so are keen to give the best service and a luxury feel what is in fact a local island. They have their heads screwed on and are focused on giving the best service and are genuinely proud of their island. Sadly some aspects of Maldives for me now feel greedy. Viluxer was a refreshing change, they are all so driven to showcase their island. The emails prior to my visit were handled by Thasneef and my ‘host’ during the stay was Zafar with Lonu as my designated driver, I think without these people, my stay would not have been the same. I was treated to a tour around the island… shown every beach, lake, heritage site possible.. I think two days were nowhere near enough. They are trying at the moment to get an area of beach to be used for their guests, this would be an advantage but I also like that the island is not ‘touristy’ at all. Viluxer Retreat is one of three properties there so far, two opening very soon. They are similar, good quality décor and such a strong team working together that I cannot imagine how these guys will not make a success of it. The room was better than many resorts I have stayed, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. There was AC, a safe, TV, small mini bar fridge, tea & coffee, rain shower and free wifi. The room was serviced twice a day. There were fresh local fruits in the room. Fuvahmulah is growing a lot of its own produce any almost every house had it’s own mango tree. For the active, the guys love surfing and diving so would be happy to keep you entertained. They have excursions and dining options too. I was very well looked after by their chef, Luthufee. On a local island you start to expect the same kind of food but they are really lucky to have him on-board and he made every meal a banquet! Overall, the stay was unforgettable. After being here a while, I didn’t think I could still be wow’ed. The people make this place stand out and the effortless service makes you feel like you are in a 5* resort on local island prices. I urge anyone thinking to visit to just go and see for yourselves. Anyone with questions about this new destination just ask!

Spent 10 days at Viluxer in March and April 2014 and had a great stay. I have been traveling in the Maldives for a few years now and can say without hesitation that Fuvahmulah and Viluxer are my absolute favorites. Viluxer is a small 4 room guest house situated directly across the street from the ocean and just a few hundred meters from several restaurants and shops. The entire house has been redecorated and renovated in a very hip modern style that still maintains its warmth and cozy atmosphere. All rooms are spacious with King beds, great A/C, minibar, and huge bathrooms with rainwater showers. Very clean and comfortable. The hotel has a small cafe on the back patio that serves breakfast in the morning. Coffee and tea are served all day long and special dinners can be prepared upon request. The grilled fish dinner that Yasir and his staff prepare is delicious and is not to be missed. Fuvahmulah is easily the most beautiful island in the Maldives with lush greenery, two large inland lakes, and a sandy beach on the North end with unique pebble sand. People are friendly and you should not be surprised if a local randomly offers to take you on a scooter tour of the island free of charge. Added bonus for Viluxer is the incredible local knowledge and connections the staff has throughout the island. Many of the staff surf and can act as guides to the many spots available on the island. Great place to surf, dive, fish, or just disconnect for a while. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

My friend and I came here in February for a diving trip. The Hotel was great and the staff was amazing and very helpful. However they are really focused on couples and honeymooners so as fanatic divers we felt a bit out of place. The Hotel has a good fibe and the staff have a lot of plans and ideas for future development. The island itself is wonderful in many ways. It's very green, has good and calm beaches, friendly locals and great dining. The diving on the other hand is still in its early stage of development. There are supposed to be great dive sites on Fuvahmulah and in time with a proper dive school I believe Fuvahmulah can become a great place for divers. Fuvahmulah will become an unique place to visit If they keep the island like it is and develop tourism in another way than all the resort islands.

My wife & I as well as my daughter and two colleagues from my institution had a one night stay in this small hotel in this beautiful and far flung island of the Maldives. Although a small hotel with only four rooms, it is certaintly well managed by a very friendly manager and his staff of 3 people. Being new, the rooms are really clean and well kept and comfortable and the wifi connection is certainly great. Across the road, one can walk to a beautiful and scenic beach. And such a beach is really common Fuvahmulah. The manager himself was amongst those who welcomed us at the airport, which is only 5 minutes drive from the hotel, drove us around the island on the day of our arrival and the following day. He and another staff of his cooked our sumptuous local breakfast. We all wished we can stay longer in the beautiful island of Fuvahmulah but unfortunately we had to return to another holiday resort near Male, the capital of Maldives.

arrived on fuvahmulah island on the 27th January to be greeted by Yasir and his beautiful six year old daughter.I was then taken the five minute drive to viluxer retreat.On arrival I received the first of many fresh coconut drinks that I really enjoyed on this island thanks to the wonderful staff.The rooms are fabulous with the most comfortable beds.Each day your room is supplied with fresh fruit and everything is spotless.I stayed at the viluxer for 13 nights and had a wonderful time this is a beautiful island with amazing people.The staff here can not do enough for you so I would say to anyone if you want to see the real Maldives come to viluxer you are in for a real treat.
