Beautiful location, well appointed water villa with stunning views and lots of interesting sea-life below makes it ideal for snorkelling (equipment provided free of charge). The Dining Room was the general restaurant producing very good food with excellent attentive staff, fine dining is in the Falhumaa restaurant, we dined outside under the stars and overlooking the sea, the menu has an excellent choice. There is the beach bar available.

A range of watersports is available which we considered to be quite pricey! The complimentary Spa treatment was so good we booked many others - highly recommended.

Overall an excellent stay.

Dear audreyg843,

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your stay experience at The Residence Maldives!

We are most delighted to read that you had enjoyed your time in our sunny island paradise taking in the panoramic views of the Indian Ocean from your villa, discovering the marine life outside of your water villa, seeking pampering treatments at the Spa by Clarins as well as the dining options around the resort.

We have also noted your feedback with regards to the pricing of the water sports activities and have shared this with the operator of the Dive Centre to review the price point for activities.

Once again, thank you for your review and feedback. We hope to welcome you back to our resort soon!


Warm regards,

M Sundaram
General Manager

Whilst the Maldives is unsurprisingly expensive it is made up for by the levels of quality, especially food and service. I had a special birthday whilst there and they really surprised me with a couple of treats that were really pleasing. 11/10 for that!
The bikes to get around the villas is an excellent aspect but we did have difficulty finding an appropriate size for my wife.
Complementary Snorkelling equipment is available and again the staff were fantastically helpful. The water area , which I believe is a concession, was good with kayaks available free but my major issue here was the cost of the jet skis - £150 ( no misprint) for 20 MINUTES is unacceptable- I did not see them being used much!!
Such was the level of service it was difficult to pick anyone out for special mention- excellence pretty well came as standard. The Falhumaa fine dining restaurant was a lovely experience in the moonlight

Have to admit it - in all the 18 Countries I have visited in the last 3-4 years, the Maldives tops the list of my all time favourites. The Residence is a perfect get away for couples. It is quiet and there is lots to do during the day. If you love snorkling be sure to check the tide times as there can be some moderate currents if its too high. All rooms come with life jackets, so please use them.

Prices can be a bit on the high side too but hey this is a premium holiday you are looking at - so try to plan your budget well. The water villas are spot on. No need for an additional swimming pool though a lot of them have this option. It's much more fun to slide down and swim in the waters underneath! Also be sure to check out the range of water sports that is on the offer. We had our own butler, the people were ultra friendly, and they'll bens the rules to live up to your satisfaction. The food is of really good quality so will suggest at least half board. You'll get staff to assist you all the way from Male airport and back if that's where you are coming from

This was the perfect place to honeymoon - it was literally heaven on earth. I highly recommend The Residences - we loved it!! The staff was super friendly, the service was first-class, and obviously the location/scenery/atmosphere was UNREAL!
