We cannot rate our time spent at Constance Halaveli highly enough. It was our first first trip to the Maldives and it surpassed our expectations in every way. From the moment we got on to the island via seaplane we felt totally spoilt. A warm welcome from Silvia before being shown around the island - we knew instantly that we had chosen the right resort. The small details included - little luxuries left in our room, iced fruit served to on your sun longer, the most beautiful sushi and fruit platter for our anniversary- all went towards making this feel far more than a holiday. The restaurants were each unique and the food quality excellent. Jing provided superb quality food beautifully presented. The lamb dish was superb! Meeru provided a more relaxed beach feel with an exceptional menu and meat perfectly cooked. The Jahaz buffet had such variety whether it was breakfast, lunch or evening meal we were constantly amazed at the choice and quality. Again, the little extras really making the difference between your average hotel buffet. The sommeliers couldn’t do enough to provide the perfect accompaniment to your meal. All inclusive really did mean all inclusive! The drinks/ cocktail menu was vast and the staff couldn’t do enough to accommodate individual tastes. The gym is well equipped and staff very friendly. We enjoyed massages in the spa and use of the facilities…sauna, steam and hot tub. Again the staff made us feel very special and couldn’t do enough to help. Throughout our stay the staff were a real highlight…attentive, keen to provide the best possible experience and a pleasure to chat to. We felt regularly as if we were the only guests on the island! Despite the resort being full there was always sunlougers available by the pool and on the beach, all positioned in a way to give you privacy and beautiful views. Our room was cleaned to a high standard with a very well stocked mini bar, the bathroom felt very luxurious and the bed was very comfortable. Our outside terrace felt incredibly private and being able to snorkelling straight from our water villa was wonderful. There was a host of sealift right on our doorstep. Excursions by boat, snorkelling, diving were all available and many offered within our all inclusive package. If you are looking for a holiday that gives you a real chance to experience exceptional quality service and accommodation in the most beautiful setting then Constance Halaveli is a must! We can’t wait to return!
In terms of facilities I definitely prefer newer and more luxurious resorts as well as larger islands that provide more variety in settings. Since we’re not at all fans of buffet lunches or dinners, the food situation left a lot to be desired. Jing restaurant is excellent but the resort could use more a’la carte options for both lunch and dinner. Staff was wonderful however from the reception to the restaurants and the dive centre. Quality of SPA treatments was excellent and we had an amazing experience swimming with manta rays. An extra special shoutout goes to the resident yoga instructor- I found myself looking forward to my hour with him every morning even though I’m by no means a morning person. And I feel like I progressed a lot in the space of a week.
Making repeated visits to an islet of almost unreal and supremely crafted solace does pose a degree of risk. Will the resort be as magical as it has been on the last five occasions we visited? Will Gigi, the dynamo of the kids' club, still be there to smile the hours away with the grandchildren? Will Mr Rashid, the unflappabale and indefatigable generalissimo of the restaurants so crucial to the appeal of the resort have decided to quit for a quieter life elsewhere far off in his Maldivian home? Because this is part of the unique appeal of Constance Halaveli: it manages to be an fall-encompassing amily engaged in catering to a series of mini-families, in our case three generations who find it deifficult to resist the lure of the Maldives. The key ingredient that Constance captures is managing to combine friendly attentiveness combined with professionalism. Everyone from an engaging CEO to the smiling garden boy manages this combination. Which is one reason that our six times at Halaveli is easily outginned by a number of visitors whose journeys here run into double figures. And that is as telling a recommendation as you can find. Don't take my word for it. Give this mini-paradise a try and be enchanted.
