What an experience!!
Reviewed 24 hours ago

Had a fantastic time. Our Jacuzzi Water Villa had a private beach at low tide. The villa is the old type but hey, that's the original Maldivian experience. Some of the installations in the villa needs a revamp, especially the bathroom and toilet. But nevertheless, the stay was great. But the best thing about this resort is the people. I met so many wonderful staffs from all over the world. I must say that they made a difference to the whole stay. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and truly a simple but meaningful getaway. Will back!

Lousy service
Reviewed 2 days ago

First impression; 47mins late check in without proper explanation (staffs said due to other customers checked out late)
So why have to compensate that on our waiting time!
Staffs at front desk was not handled this in the way it supposed to do : told us to “seat” “seat down” we wait for so long already and why we have to listen to you guys and seat there like pets?
Water villa is so old...
room 110 water pipe broken
Room 111 lamp, wifi is weak! Lost signal most of the time!
Anyway, we’re not happy here! Never come back

We just had a really nice stay at Olhuveli. Lucky enough to enjoy good wind for kitesurfing. Friendly staff. The kids club is really nice and our daughter enjoyed a lot there with Kanchan, Abi and Zuna. A really good place for family.

GREAT HONEYMOON!
Reviewed 3 days ago

My husband always wanted to visit Maldives, so for our honeymoon, we made it happen. Olhuveli was an amazing resort. Lots of water activities and very relaxing atmosphere. I personally wouldn't recommend coming here with kids, as there isn't a whole lot for them to do (if they're really young). I feel it's more for adults/honeymooners who want to enjoy a quiet, relaxing getaway. We stayed in one of the water villas with a Jacuzzi and was able to enjoy the sunsets. Our AC wasn't working very well so it was pretty hot in our room. We did let staff know who said they fixed it, but we ended up have to move our bed under the AC in order to not wake up sweating to death. The Wifi did not work either, we had to walk by the restaurants in order to use it which we didn't really mind doing because we would check in with our family during breakfast and didn't use our phones anymore the rest of the time we were there. Naail, at the Plankton Grill, was AWESOME! He made our honeymoon dinner a great experience and we loved talking with him. He's very funny and our favorite employee. The staff at the Dhoni Bar are very nice as well and we loved getting some sun by the pool. I loved that this pool had a "no kids" rule, but unfortunately, this family who brought their kids there were loud and obnoxious and the staff repeatedly asked them to leave, but the family wouldn't listen and continued to let their kids be loud, run around and splash people. You could tell the adults were very annoyed by this but I feel like the staff should be more assertive next time and take care of the issue so the adults can enjoy their peace and quiet by the pool. (They do have a kids pool by the Sunset Bar, which is by another restaurant and tennis courts/playgrounds). We enjoyed walking around on the beaches, going out on the jet skis and snorkeling in the reefs. It was a beautiful place. The weather was good for us most of the time, but the last 3 days were very cloudy, rainy and stormed on and off which sucked because we weren't able to do a lot of activities we wanted to do, but you can't control the weather. We were there during the rainy season, so I would recommend going in the dry season. We got a couple of paintings by the local artist Shinaz. He's very talented and I definitely recommend grabbing one of his paintings, or other crafts to take home as a memory. If you don't have an all inclusive package, be prepare to spend $1,000+ on food and drinks if you're staying at least a week. You get 2 liters of free water a day in your room, but other than that, you pay for the water. Me and my husband only really drink water so $2 a bottle added up. One thing that did upset me was when we were checking out, it was obviously hot and we were sweating, so I asked for water and they told me to go to the bar and pay for one. I doubt it would have hurt them to grab a bottle for us to enjoy while we were checking out. They also have an amazing Spa! The ladies were really nice. We got a couples massage and enjoyed the sauna. I got a pedicure as well (which was a little pricey) and an hour foot massage. I enjoyed the foot massage but felt like I didn't get my moneys worth, as she kept stopping and focused on my legs more and shorted me by 10 minutes. Other than that, we would definitely come back to the Maldives again! Thank you so much Olhuveli for a wonderful experience! :)

A beautiful Maldivian island and just big enough for a 7 day holiday. The food is amazing considering it is all shipped in. The best restaurant is the Plankton Grill although on an AI package you do need to pay extra. We stayed at a Deluxe Water Villa and it was worth the extra to have direct access to the water, which by the way is so warm, it's wonderful. Our room (104) had an extra bed tucked into a bay which meant our 14 year old son didn't need a camp bed. It worked very well for him and didn't clutter the room.
The Sunset Restaurant is the main buffet restaurant and caters for all tastes with an extensive buffet menu. We were on an all-inclusive package and this allowed us to eat and drink freely at this restaurant. This restaurant is very busy though and may not suit everybody. I would recommend the Lagoon Restaurant which provides a fixed 5 course menu and we actually preferred this as the buffet was too busy for us.
The Water Sports and Diving centre have very helpful staff and the paddle boarding and jet ski rides were very good. The water on this side of the island is quite choppy as it is open sea as opposed to a lagoon on the other side where the water villas were so paddle boarding was a bit of a challenge for us.
Snorkelling is only accessible from the diving centre and I would suggest you wait for low tide in order to reach the snorkelling area more easily. Lots of lovely fish. No turtles or sharks. I would recommend this island for families and couples alike.
