Dream Island on Olhuveli
Reviewed 23 hours ago

After a smooth jet boat ride we arrived at Olhuveli Beach Resort and Spa. Check in was smooth and we were very fortunate to be one of three couples to be the first to stay at the new “dream island” development of the island. The accommodation was amazing. It was a little disappointing that all the facilities were not finished but the staff bent over backwards to make up for this. Special thanks to managers, Mohamed Afeef, Nahjah and Ahmed Rifau who made our stay just amazing. We stayed in an over water villa with a plunge pool. I’d highly recommend staying here and look forward to coming back next year.

Loved it.

My husband I just spent 5 nights at Olhuveli Resort and Spa.
A good first impression does make a difference. So from the pick up from Male airport by friendly, welcoming staff was great. Nice boat ride to the resort(about 45 minutes) was very swift.
Welcome to the island and check in was well organised as was transport to our unbelievable room.
We had a brand new Grand water Delux room on Dream Island with stunning views of the ocean.
Our room was modern, very clean and private with great air conditioning. Our own infinity pool was great where we spent hours apart from jumping into the crystal clear water to snorkel and see so many beautiful reef fish.
Being our 25th Wedding Anniversary they do special momentous add ons.
Decorations on the bed and towel animals are sweet. The only gripe about the room was the bar fridge was not cold, so drinking anything out of it especially in a place so warm was not good.
The food was well prepared and fresh, but by the end of our stay, the variety and style was not in our favour. More western style would be a welcoming change. Eg. More steaks, grilled chicken, roast meats maybe at night and more cold meats at lunches.
Activities were plentiful, but if all you want to do is chill, then this is the place to be.
Staff were so friendly and would attend to you very promptly. Room cleaners, buggy drivers and bar staff all very professional. Sumith in the Dream Island bar was a lovely fellow.
Would love to return in years to come.

Wonderful family holiday!

We stayed at Olhuveli for 8 nights in April, in a Deluxe Room. We’re a family of 4 with kids aged 4 and 9.

We had a wonderful stay. The resort is laid We stayed in April in a Deluxe Room, as a family of four (kids aged 4 and 9). We loved the resort - laid back, friendly, and beautiful. We loved watching the Manta Rays (go down to the end of the pontoon after 8pm) and spotting reef sharks in the bay.

Excellent kids club - our children enjoyed being able to go for an hour here and there. Lots of activities, great facilities and lovely staff.

Our room was newly decorated, so lighter and brighter than we’d anticipated from the photos. It was just big enough for the four of us, but would feel a bit cramped with older children. Simple, but clean and perfectly adequate.

Having seen the reviews, we were a bit worried about the building works. When we arrived, I was disappointed to find our room faced onto the island where the building is taking place. We didn’t have any problems with noise, but you can see diggers, cranes and workmen. After a while, it didn’t bother me so much - but I’d recommend requesting a room on the Sunset side of the island if you can - both the view and beach are nicer, and the sun sets are amazing. You can take a walk over to Dream Island. The beach there is lovely.

The food was good, but the buffet restaurant got very busy (and hot) at around 8pm. Not a huge amount of variety to appeal to the children, they ate a lot of pasta. Amazing deserts, which they loved! Service at Island Pizza was incredibly slow - we waited almost an hour for drinks add two hours for our food.

We heard that Lagoon Restaurant was very good. You can eat here from a set menu as part of the AI plan. Book table as soon as you arrive - we didn’t manage to get a reservation during our stay, which was a shame.

Could do with more sun loungers on the beach and at the pool.

Trips were fab. We did great Dolphin Cruise, Fishing, Snorkel Safari. We also enjoyed crab racing!

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, as would definitely recommend. An amazing place for families and lots of wonderful memories for our children.

We spent wonderful days here.
Sea,sand,restaurants,paths,rooms... everything was beautiful.
Staffs always smile,and they were kind & polite even they are very busy.
Luckily we had a chance to talk with the director.
We were really impressed his high hospitality and its spilits.
Every staff smiles at him like a friend whenever they see him.
So we felt their good relationship.
Must go!

Review - olhuveli

This has been one of the best holidays of my life. The hotel and food has been excellent.

We stayed in a beach villa and it was quite dark inside. I would upgrade to a grand beach villa next time or just go for a superior room which still has beach access. The outdoor bathroom was a big hit with the kids!

The food was excellent! Drinks were good- there was limited choice of cocktails but we ordered the fruit mocktails and added a shot of vodka! Beer was Carlsberg and Lion (Made in Sri Lanka)

Snorkelling was fantastic!! The manta rays at night were out of this world! The viewing platform was excellent and it was a lovely sight. The low tide meant it wasn’t intimidating for younger kids when heading out to the reef.

The service was really slow when we went, It felt like they needed an extra 5 staff at the pool and ten staff at the restaurant. We had to wave them over if we wanted a drink, which I don’t like doing, and the wait for the food at the beach pizza place was far too long. People looked annoyed at times. It didn’t impact massively on my holiday as I was so relaxed - and we found out you could order food from your sunbed round the pool.

Kids club was excellent! I had to stop my two going all the time!!! It’s open 9-6pm and lots of activities - the girls who ran it were excellent. There were lots of kids there and it was brilliant for them all to play in the pool together.

The free excursions were brilliant!! The dolphin watching cruise was lovely and my husband went fishing as well.

Practical stuff - Don’t bother taking towels there is loads and always readily available. Snorkels are free to use so don’t worry about taking your own, ask for life jackets at reception to be taken to room for free or pay $4 from the dive centre. We didn’t get bitten until the last night when it rained so if the weather is telling you it might be a bit wet take plenty of mossy spray.

We had a holiday of a lifetime here at Olhuveli and can’t wait to go back next year. (Kirkham’s room 405)
