We stayed in a beach pool villa and it was amazing! The marine life around the island is unreal, tiny baby sharks along the beach (too small to harm you don’t worry!) we seen so many fish rays etc. The staff are A1 and treat you like royalty - what an experience!!! Highly recommend

We researched for a long time before finding this property and we are so glad we did! We did a family trip during Christmas and it was an experience unlike anything else. Right from the time we landed in Male to the time we returned to Male, their service was impeccable.
You have to take a flight from Male to Kudoo island and then 10 minutes fast boat to reach this island. The remoteness of the island makes it absolutely gorgeous with 1000 shades of blue, in each direction you look. The property is spread beautifully throughout the island and the water villas are to die for! We took the sunset villa and witnessed gorgeous sunsets from our room. The water everywhere is crystal clear and not very deep either.
The food is worth a mention as its honestly the best food I have had till date! The Christmas Eve dinner had the widest spread you could imagine, with each item cooked to perfection. There was an entire mini room for desserts! The fire shows and other dances provided plenty of entertainment too.
One thing to note is that if you want to go diving, you need to book one day in advance, with the dive centre.
Whether you want to cycle through the island or just chill by the swimming pool overlooking the ocean or go snorkelling or kayaking, this is the place for you. We have stayed in many 5 star properties but this was hands down the best pampering we have received. Would definitely go back again!

My husband found this resort by chance, and it is easily one of our favorite properties we have ever stayed at -- even compared to high-name properties like the Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, etc. The service cannot be beat. All of the staff members here truly make you feel like family, and they go above and beyond to accommodate all of your requests. Very much enjoyed our time here. Well done, Residence!

The rooms were spacious, clean and tidy. Resort staff were friendly and they greet you whenever there’s eye contact made. They try their best to make you feel welcomed and were helpful to requests. However the bicycles are too high for Asian/petite ladies but front desk staff refuse to exchange a smaller bicycle for me, quoting small size bicycle for kids. Front desk manager was prompt to rectify my request to change my domestic flight time as their new staff made a mistake with my preferred booking.
