For me this is "heaven on Earth" All inclusive is a must in my opinion, and it is expensive especially with the drop against the Dollar - but worth it. Had a sunset villa - perfect! soft sand within 5 metres and the sea within 25 metres! Your own private loungers and beach umbrella! Safe bathing and snorkelling! Buffet meals...

This was my third holiday in the Maldives, and my third resort. I’ve always chosen water villas, so can make a fair comparison with all – at least regarding accommodation. The villa at Vakarufalhi was definitely the largest I have stayed in so far – very roomy. The general condition of the room was good, but sadly let down a...

The seaplane from Male to Vakarufalhi is a real highlight and the views over the various islands delightful. The resort is definitely a "no shoes" location which is gorgeous. It is small (12 minutes) but if you want relaxation and complete privacy it is great. We do not scuba but we do snorkel and that is great. The beach villas...

The island is very small. You walk round it in 12 minutes. There is nothing to do except sunbathing and relax. There is so many fish especially over the reef. I recommend you go on all inclusive package, the food is very very good and the bar is from 10am - 11pm. There is entertainment at least 5 nights per...

The rooms were luxurious, large and elegant; it was immaculate. We stayed in the beach villa, ocean villa and private pool villa to experience it all under the All Inclusive package. I would definitely recommend staying in the beach villa first and then the ocean villa to get that “upgraded” feeling and to experience true Maldivian accommodation. The beach villa...

Great service, awesome food, nice staff and full of wild life! I recommend the day trips to see manta rays or whale sharks. We were not lucky with the whale sharks though, the island is a delight for snorkeling. Walking during the sunset or just watching the stars lying in the sand after a lovely dinner are things that make...

The island is beautiful, like living in a screensaver. It never felt crowded. Definitely stay in an overwater villa to get the typical Maldives experience, and I would recommend the all inclusive package. The staff were so lovely and the chef kept personally ensuring I had enough vegetarian meals to eat! We are both fussy eaters and there was plenty...

We stayed in Vakaru for 5 days at the beginning of the month and loved every minute of it! Although Maldives is considered a relatively exy holiday spot for us Aussies, we felt our stay was worth every cent. We booked the all inclusive option which covered buffet brekkie, lunch, dinner and drinks - including alcoholic bevvy from 10.30am til...
