Hi Mei Yun,
Thank you soooo much for the recommendation! We LOVE Maalifushi by Como! Had a wonderful time and enjoyed ourselves. It was a perfect honeymoon!
We stayed in room 404 for the first 3 nights and 410 for next 5 nights. They had low occupany and upgraded us from the beach suites to the watervillas. 404 is slightly bigger and I like the layout better but there are quite alot of stones and corals in the water. 410 is smaller but walking in the water was easier with the sandbed and there is a small coral with fishes just outside the room. Thus we did spend more time in the waters in 410 villa. Oh! And they are on the sunset side… thank you!
The staff provided attentive service and never say “No” to any request. They will always try and work something out for us. We especially like to mention a few of the staff. Boji happen to be attending to our table during meals most of the days and he is very attentive! He took note of our meal habits and also engaging in conversation with interesting knowledge of Maldives without being intrusive. Same goes for EZ at the dive centre and another guy at the bar! Apologies I forgot his name. It starts with D! Andrew’s effort to speak to the guests to see if everything is in order appreciated too.
Our schedule was very sparse though as our main purpose was to relax. We usually have one activity a day. Dolphin Cruise and the coral garden snorkeling highly recommended! We even managed to catch turtles and a baby shark at the coral garden snorkel session. The complimentary yoga sessions are great! Only managed to catch the afternoon classes and they were relaxing and gives a good scretch. We wanted to go for a few others like sunset bottom fishing, late night snorkel and local cultural expedition but the lazy bone got the better of us.
The food was brilliant! Every meal was satisfying and delicious. Our favourite had to go to the seafood buffet on Friday!
All in all… a very very nice resort and brilliant stay for our first Maldives visit! Thanks for helping with all the arrangements! Looking forward to more trips and will be in touch with you!
