This is the best vacation ever!
The house reef around the island is amazing, everyday we saw sharks, turtels, stingrays and all kinds of colorfull fishes that you can amagine. We snorkeling for hours everyday.
All staff at the island is so kind and you feel so welcome. The food was so yummy, it was really made with love :) This is paradise on earth, we will come back for shore!

Visited Eriyadu for the 3rd time during early May and it was after almost 5 years since we last visited.

Pool and the bar which had been under construction when we visited last time are now in full operation and there has been a considerable face lift in the entire resort, including some room refurbishments. The bar is a nice place to enjoy the evening sunset.

Snorkeling has always been the biggest attraction at Eriyadu where one could enjoy the wonderful corals and fishes. We even saw huge nurse sharks around the jetty.

Kids loved the pool and the variety of food too has improved a lot, which is definitely a plus...... The staff was very courteous and helpful as always and overall, it was a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: All rooms have the ocean view

This island is truly amazing!!! My wife cried when we first arrived after an hour-long trip on a speedboat. The crystal clear water and the pristine white sand truly captivates our hearts. The hospitality of all the people working at the resort is really inevitable. At first, we were greeted with warm welcomes and cold refreshments at the reception area. Also, they helped us bring our luggages to our room.

Special mention to Sherlly who hepled us a lot in arranging a very romantic dinner by the beach on our anniversary night. It is one of those nights that you will truly remember for the rest of our lives. Also to Ali of the Euro Divers, he helped us take a lot photos whenever we did a water sport activity.

Now that I mention about water sports, you can arrange different water sports activity at your own convinience. You just need to go to the Euro Divers and they will happily obliged to your needs. Snorkeling is a must at this island since it is surrounded by the house reef. You just need to swim out just a little farther from the beach and you can already see the amazing corals and fishes swimming nearby. In the afternoon, you will not miss out on the nurse sharks swimming near the jetty area. It was a surreal experience to see up close and personal a shark swimming nearby.

Overall, I can say that we were very satisfied and we really enjoyed a lot of our stay at this very prestigious island. We will definitely come back with our children. This island is highly recommended for those people looking to have some relax and out of the city experience.

Never been to the Maldives before, not sure I'll go again as it's a long trip with little to do unless you like water sports as the island are quite isolated. But then I suppose that's the point of it!! Eriyadu Island Hotel offered little in the way of excursions, etc; I suppose these need to be booked through a third party. They did provide night fishing though, basic but fun.

The hotel itself is good, but was going through some sort of refurbishment. The hotel lobby was a desk and some sofas, with a sand floor. Restaurant had a sand floor too - I know, it's an atoll, but still!! - though rooms were sand floor free. Food was good but nothing extravagant, the local take on food from other countries didn't quite hit the mark, but the local food itself was great.

Rooms are clean and a good size, but really not keen on the open roof bit of the bathroom. Understand why they have it (just by the back door, hand for a hose down after the sea/pool), but not my cup of tea. Note: toiletries provided are just bars of soap.

The staff are all very helpful and friendly.

All in all a good experience (despite the torrential rain half the time!), but not sure I'd visit the Maldives again.

Stayed: February 2017
