Riu atoll review We were met in arrivals lounge by rep and taken for complimentary breakfast at one of the airport dining facilities. Afterwards, accompanied to check-in for departure to Kudahuvadhoo. Very smooth and efficiently executed. Bravo Riu Atoll! Flew on time and arrived at the small Dhaalu airport. We checked in two bags because the hand luggage allowance is 5kg only. There was no delay in getting our checked bags and we were directed to a bus for a short journey to the jetty. From the jetty, we boarded a large boat (50 pax capacity) - with plenty of space and comfort. The journey across the sea took around 20 minutes and the mesmerising Riu resort comes into view. There was a brief presentation about the resort and the facilities and activities as well as mention of the need to be mindful of COVID-19 and follow protocols. A lovely refreshing drink awaits you as the check in process gets underway. Alberto, the resort manager himself, accompanied us part way to our beach villa. The holiday begins as soon as the door opens and the beautiful white sandy beach and glittering blue sea come into view from your veranda/balcony window. Excellent first impression Riu. You had us looked after from the moment we got through immigration!

Riu has a hotel app from which you can arrange just about anything, order/change/check just about anything and find out what activities/events are happening on the day. You are encouraged to download it at check-in, I wish I had downloaded it even before then. It is probably the way forward for most hotels nowadays. So convenient - no need to be waiting on unanswered calls at front desk. Pretty much everything you need to know and more is there on the app!

The room is modern, clean and practical. Let’s face it, we don’t come to the Maldives to stay cooped up in a hotel room. The beach, the warm blue ocean, the snorkelling, diving and other water sports will soak up a lot of your time. Then there is the pool and Sunshine Bar were the cocktails just keep coming. There is always a huge and delicious selection of food at the Dhona restarurant as well as a couple of restaurants you can pre book to enjoy a more refined a-la-carte experience. The sports bar and boraberdu bar ensure nightlife entertainment with various activities/events to wind up each day. It doesn’t have to be all hectic of course. Personally, I enjoyed some delightful sunrise walks along the island and I’d recommend the Renova spa at least once. If you want to maintain your fitness routine, the gym offers enough equipment to see you through.

This resort creates a special mood and a special memory. During our stay here, we were totally relaxed, we felt protected (from corona) and looked after. Our mood was easy and free which allowed us to open up to other guests and make some great holiday companions from the US and from Spain. However, even more than this, the staff who work here are just the best. I must mention some names because they truly made the holiday special - moments by the pool or antics in the evenings at the Bodaberu bar - Ruki (so energetic and funny), Sandina (fun and cheeky with her disarming smile), Chandana (a super competent and attentive barman - who just knows what you want), Samee (another great guy working at the bar), Fanny the entertainment manager who puts such energy into her shows for the kids and Shammy who works at Caribe dive centre and tries her best to give you an unforgettable marine experience. The staff at the restaurants work tirelessly as do the room service staff. These are especially difficult times due to the pandemic and they worked so hard under the circumstances.

All in all, we had a wonderful experience at Riu Atoll Maldives. All credit to you for your perseverance, energy, organisation and hospitality. We loved it here and we hope we will come back!

Best holiday experience we've ever had! There is so much to see and so much to do on the island. The resort felt very exclusive and we loved every day of our stay. The bonus for us was the entertainment team, they were so welcoming, fun and helpful! They did an amazing job at keeping the good vibe! We loved Sadani her daily watergym and her yoga. We also loved the paddle yoga with Prasad on the water! During the day there was volleyball, Bingo and darts games. Also every evening there was either a party or live music organized by Rukii and Laka. And Prasad gave us advise how to get most of our coral snorkel experience. (Thanks guys!) Water has both coral reef and sand beach (mostly), so nice to choose from. We stayed both in a beach room and (later)in a water villa. The rooms were very clean with a modern design. We selected this resort for that, and definitely met our expectations. We had a couples massages from Bali team and a trip to open waters to see dolphins - it was all really good! Food was great, great variety and friendly kitchen staff! We definitely recommend this hotel!

We spent our honeymoon in RIU Atoll maldives, and it was PERFECT! We booked a 5 night stay (3 nights in the over water superior suite and 2 in the beach room). The overwater villa experience is a must! The room is very spacious, very clean, the view is mesmerizing, the water is crystal clear !! You can even enjoy watching the fishes from your villa. Very private and very romantic ! I highly recommend it !!!! The beach room was also clean and beautiful. We suggest to add a shower outside the room to get rid of the sand before entering the room. It s a different experience. Concerning the activities we highly recommend the snorkling excursion! The food at the buffet is great! So many activities and program during the day, and live music shows during the night. You never get bored We enjoyed every moment! Finally, all the staff in the resort are adorable! They take care of you since the very 1st minute you land in Malé airport. All the covid 19 precautions are taken! Great value for money!! Everything in RIU ATOLL exceeded our expectations.

We stayed at Riu Atoll in mid July and we had a great time. All the workers are so friendly and the hotel itself is beautiful. There were a few workers who really stood out to me though. Those workers were Prashan and Isuru. They were more than amazing the whole time and really took good care of us. They also made amazing drinks and they really helped make our experience here amazing. Thank you Prashan and Isuru for being so nice and helpful at the bars.
