Hotel's Favourite
We have been coming here every year since 2014, with the exception of last year. It really is our idea of paradise and never fails to deliver. The entire Noku team, led by the superbly professional yet friendly, resort manager, Basil, go out of their way to make sure every aspect of your stay is perfect. We always stay in a sunset water villa, which offers privacy and stunning views of the ocean……at the same time as having your very own infinity pool. The villas are enormous and the standard of housekeeping is first class. The cuisine on offer is nothing short of superb! All cultures and nationalities are catered for and nothing is too much trouble for the chefs. I celebrated a ‘big birthday’ here this year and the team worked very hard with my husband to surprise me with a candlelit dinner on the beach……..lobster, langoustines and scallops all accompanied by a Maldivian group of drummers………a magical experience. The gardeners work extremely hard every day…….. not a leaf to be seen on the sandy walkways or beaches. The house reef offers a great daily snorkelling treat……..colourful fish, turtles, rays and sharks are plentiful…….it’s just like a Disney movie! The biggest attraction for us is the tranquility of Noku. The staff are calm and cheerful, ensuring that your holiday is everything you hoped. Thank you to our ‘Noku family’………we look forward to seeing you next year.

Where to begin? Our stay at Noku Maldives (8 nights) was in one word amazing. It's a 45min flight by seaplane, but once you get there you will get into a full relaxation mode. The island is not very big (aprox. 50 villas) and gives you a piece of mind holidays. Everyday they have 2 to 3 complimentary activities. Besides the daily fish feeding, they had a cooking class, yoga at sunset sessions, high tea, sunset cocktails and beachvolley. You can also go kayaking or peddleboarding everyday for 1 hour. The watersport center also offers paid excursions. We did a dolphin cruise, which was absolutely amazing!! Another good thing about this resort is the staff, they are super firendly and accomodating. If they can't a fullfill your request, they offer to go out of their ways to fullfill it. The staff are very attentive and do a good job. Especially the beaches and pathways get cleaned up on a daily basis. Foodwise we enjoyed it a lot (recommend Shrimp dymamic at Palms restaurants): they have 2 restaurants which is enough to have a variety of food a week long. Regarding our villa, we had a sunset watervilla with pool and it was so so good. It was huge and had everything we needed. Besides comfortable beds, the bathroom was huge and well equiped, the sundeck was perfect for tanning and the pool super relaxing. I have also seen (walked past) the other villa, but I think the one we had was perfect (try to get the villas 20-30). This was a special trip for our since we got engaged and celebrated a birthday, so thank you Noku Maldives for accomodating everything. We will make sure to return one day!

We have been to this resort in December for honeymoon. We enjoyed our stay a lot. Rooms are very spacious, well positioned. It would be better if they give some alcoholic beverages and some snacks items in mini bar like other resorts. The resort is not known for various activities actually, but you can enjoy peace, privacy, serenity. Food was good, but they could introduce more Indian food variety. Being vegetarian, my wife found very limited Indian veg food options. However, chefs were very accommodative to cook special dishes for us as per our choice. Talking about our operator Omayma, she was one of the best person we met on the island. She was always ready to help, very enthusiastic. She even helped us to take take photos in various poses and background. Resort has buggy facility available for 24*7 to roam around the island, that was the most convenient feature. Overall it was a nice experience !!!

We went to NOKU Resort for our honeymoon!!! It was a delayed trip due to COVID-19, but it was fully compensated! Everything seemed to exist for us. It was the perfect place for us who loved nature and wanted to rest. I want to recommend it to everyone. ps. I'd like to thank our room manager Omyma and waitress SUZATA from india.

A very late review - apologies! We stayed at this beautiful resort in December 2021. It was very quiet as the resort had only recently opened after COVID. Nevertheless, the staff were amazing!! So friendly and accommodating each time. Quality of food at all restaurants was 5*! Nothing negative to say - we honestly had a fabulous time and were treated so well! Although not really presented as a family resort, my sons (aged 13 and 10) were able to entertain themselves with the pool and sea! They got involved with the water sports and the staff looked after them so well. Thank you for a memorable and wonderful stay!

Too good. Staff were very courteous. Rooms are very big and so private. We stayed in private pool water and beach villas. They are amazingly good for the size and views. Food is okay. Could be better. Small and cute island. We are able to witness Bioluminescent planktons too.
