This has been one of the most memorable experiences of our lives, and we are so sad it’s coming to an end. The resort is beautiful and modern, the views and the water around the island is surreal. The amazing staff really made the stay feel so much more than we imagined. They went above and beyond to make us feel at home. We were a big group with little kids, so we were not easy guests. I’m so grateful to the team for their patience and help :). Shahaau was a wonderful host, and every detail was taken care of. The resort is small and feels very private; despite it being a busy season we feel like we are alone here. I would describe it as minimalistic luxury; it’s not flashy like some 5 star resorts, but has so much charm, class and taste. The design is beautiful and contemporary, with a warm and welcoming feel. Our kids loved the week we spent here, and there is so much to do as a family. I was worried that it’s more of a couples resort, but it turned out to be heaven for our family - peace and serenity to make beautiful memories. Thank you so much to the team for a dream vacation.
My partner and I were very lucky to stay at Outrigger Maafushi Sth Ari for three nights. We loved our over water bungalow and the resort itself was also excellent. We had the pleasure of being looked after by Shahaau and lots of other warm and kind staff. The food was of very high quality and the variety was excellent. We swam with whale sharks and mantas on resort excursions, and we also were amazed by snorkelling around the island’s reef. My partner and I highly recommend this resort, and we rate this holiday experience as one of the best of our lives :)
We had the most fantastic holiday. Can’t really describe only how Breathtaking and extremely beautiful this place was. We had a special relationship with Dmitrii who was out of this world, nothing was too much trouble, he went above and beyond to make our holiday so much more than we ever could have hoped for. All the staff were just outstanding, nothing was difficult, the food was just amazing. Everyone came across so happy, they all have time to talk to every guest and seem to enjoyed there work making it the most friendliest, warming island. My husband is disabled and at no point did anyone make us feel anything was to difficult, it helps that the island is small with very little steps making it easy to get around, because the island is small, gives it family atmosphere. We also went on on a excursion to see manta rays and a whale shark which was just the most incredible experience, Our fantastic guide ‘Sata’ was so patient, kind and extremely knowledgable. As you can imagine All animals are free and wild so we didn’t expect to see anything however we left with no expectation and was saw and swam with (small) sharks, Manta rays, a whale shark, sting rays, a multitude of all kinds of fish, turtles and dolphins. I could go on about the amount of marine life we saw but just to explain how fantastic the entire experience. The overall holiday was just incredible and we can not express how much we would definitely recommend outrigger Maafushivaru. We went to Kuramathi last year which was amazing however, and this island does not compare and We will be going back next February and can wait. If I had one negative about the entire experience it would be Male Airport but that has no bearing on the island. This is one holiday we would describe as a ‘No but’ holiday.
