We had come to this island from another resort on the Maldives and it took us a day to stop comparing the 2 and to start enjoying the island. The water villas were great but just need a small bit of TLC to make them truly amazing. The staff were all fantastic and made us feel very welcome, the islands...

We celebrated our 50th Birthday's at this beautiful island in the Maldives. What a fantastic time we had! The island is so lovely and quiet and is exactly what you would expect when you read about 'deserted' islands in the Indian Ocean. If your looking for a small, quiet island of which a maximum of 100 people can stay there...

We stayed at this beautiful resort end of February beginning of March 2017 for 12 nights in an over the water sunset villa. The main island and the smaller sister island Lonubo are delightful.

We stayed at Maafushivaru for 10 nights in mid-February in a water villa and had a really lovely holiday. The resort is small, even by Maldivian standards, but is generally well arranged so that it feels more spacious than it actually is. The main buildings – reception, lounge (called the coffee shop), restaurant and bar – are together and adjacent...

We were on Maafushivaru the past 10 days and it was amazing! The staff was so friendly, the food was great (every day something new to discover), the reef was fantastic for snorkeling and/or diving.

Just back from a 10-night stay at Maafushivaru. The island is beautiful (as is the sister island Lonubo which we went to once). Lots of snorkeling at the island - the coral was quite bleached, but there were lots of fish plus we saw clams, starfish, a turtle and a ray. We also went on a manta ray excursion -...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Reached by a picturesque flight over the mysterious atolls of the Maldives, Maafushivaru is a quiet island knitted with lush flora surrounded by pure white sandy beaches and incredible turquoise lagoon. Next to the resort is the tiny desert island of Lonubo, exclusive to Maafushivaru guests. A visit to this beautiful island is a must. You can choose from daily visits for basking in the sun and snorkeling the beautiful reef, or ultimately book to stay overnight, an island just for you and your beloved, even if only for a night. Slumber at your choice of three distinct villas. Beach Villas are sited on postcard perfect beaches whilst the Water Villas are built on stilts over the Indian Ocean providing sunset and sunrise vistas that will be forever etched in your memory. For a fun filled holiday, the Pool Villa is the right pick for families or friends travelling together, featuring two separate villas with a shared pool. Summon the bon vivant inside of you with the delectable fare. Cuisine Gallery showcases a potpourri of dishes from all over the world. While 135° East is your key for an authentic Japanese cuisine displaying the art of teppanyaki and the hibachi steakhouse. Sip favourite sunset cocktails at Water Bar with eclectic evening entertainment ranging from Maldivian evenings, to laser shows and disco nights under the starlit sky. Located on the water’s edge, instill a sense of calm and quietude at the Spa with signature product line Voya focusing on healing therapies and rituals. Explore rich underwater life on the house reefs of Maafushivaru and Lonubo, where fish teem and corals bloom colourfully. Dive with whale sharks and mantas in famed spots down south. Discover the epitome of Maldives – Maafushivaru. ... more   less
