"I had the utmost pleasure recently to visit the Maldives for the first time. I am a Hilton Diamond member and have had my eye on the Waldorf Astoria Maldives since they opened in 2019. Hilton points are easy to earn and this property is the highest value you can get for those points at a standard room rate of 120k points per night. You have to be patient to find the availability but it does happen. And a “standard” room here is nothing short of luxurious. My experience at the Waldorf did not disappoint in any way and absolutely exceeded my expectations. I want to give special mention to my concierge during my stay, Camille. There was nothing I asked of her that couldn’t be accomplished, and always with the kindest of smiles. She is genuine and warm. Honestly, all of the staff members I encountered were just as happy to help me out, greeting me by name most of the time. I travel solo a lot, and I do enjoy the solitude of it. But there are also instances when I am eager to have a chat, in which case, it was always a joy to visit Peacock Alley for a Happy Hour or post-dinner cocktail. My two favorite bartenders, Zedd and Sudheep, couldn’t have been nicer. The cocktails were well crafted and it was fun to just give them a flavor profile, to see what delicious concept they could design for me. Vanilla Margaritas are my new favorite. I also appreciated visiting with Sofie from Guest Relations on a couple of occasions. It started out as a professional business gesture, making sure all my needs were being met, asking for feedback, which is nice to get asked about. Then the conversation turned to Waldorf properties around the world, and favorite destinations to visit next time. That is my favorite type of conversation to have and I learned a lot of good ideas from Sofie about that. It wasn’t a rushed thing, I felt it was genuine and sincere. I appreciate that so much. One more thing I would like to share with trip advisor readers, if you are interested in snorkeling. Maybe you have read some past reviews or opinions about the house reef at the Waldorf being perhaps not quite up to par. Let me tell you, that is not the case anymore. I was a bit skeptical after having read similar comments. I have snorkeled at the Great Barrier Reef, which I didn’t think could be topped. I was wrong. I’ve never seen so many different varieties of fish before. I had asked several staff members where they thought the best spots to snorkel the house reef from would be, and was told to go near the dive shop and in front of Yasmeen (a Lebanese restaurant on the resort). The water was so clear, I could see for a very long distance. I was thrilled with the experience, and if fish are what you want to see, this is an amazing place to see them. I just wanted to say again to all the wonderful and warm staff members at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives, you made my visit there an experience I will never forget. Thank you for making me feel so very w"
"Being rated the fifth best hotel in the world by one the leading global travel magazines, I wonder what the top four do better than the WA? Everything here is near perfect, only thing to be unhappy about is the bill at check-out (tip - pay with Hilton points). The island and villas are beautiful. Food is superb. You know you're going somewhere special when you board the yacht for transportation to the island, and it just gets better. Unfortunately Hilton did not send me a departure survey and I'd like to recognize a handful of gentlemen who made our stay over the top better, all working in food and beverage. In the kitchen Asian chef Mr Fatt and pastry chef Mr Saurabh made custom dishes for us at breakfast that were outstanding, and both gentlemen were great to talk with. Server at Tasting Table Mr Saif became my 'best friend' on property with his attentive service and great personality. Bar staff at Peacock Alley, especially Mr Sudeep and Mr Zedd, kept us entertained and well lubricated during Diamond happy hour. Loved every minute, we'll be back."
"Overall, our experience at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives was amazing. It was truly the best vacation destination and resort we have experienced. The entire staff was extremely accommodating and proved to be very sweet individuals. Our personal concierge, Shawki, was THE BEST, and never skipped a beat. We understand that occupancy was a bit higher than usual when we visited, yet we never felt like that was the case because Shawki was supportive every step of the way. The entire resort including our Water Villa was absolutely breathtaking. Every detail and design was thoughtfully curated with utility. I will be highly recommending this resort to friends and family."

"Breakfast is good, I personally feel that the experience is very good, especially the service... The hotel has been in business for 8 years, so if you have strict requirements on hardware facilities, then consider it clearly, I think the hotel opened for 8 years is still quite good... water The house is superb, the room layout, design, are very good, much better than many other water houses I saw when I went out to sea... The service is another one that I am very satisfied with, the butler is very professional, consider very thoughtful... Next time I go to Madai, I should still choose here..."
"Girlfriends travel awesome Six Star Island! The butler Chelsea is professional and intimate and meticulous, arranged to impeccable! Thank you Chelsea for having you on the island one by one. We will come back for vacation next year! Thanks to Ctrip's professional services, we stayed for three nights at the beach house and three nights at the water house. Beach houses are also good, compared to recommended water houses. Excellent service, great view, great breakfast and dinner included!"
"Very perfect holiday, the sand house actually upgraded to the duplex villa 907, the coral at the door is less than ten meters from the beach, the fish is a lot, the snorkeling level is great~, in contrast, the water house is slightly monotonous, the wind is rushing, affecting Snorkeling, of course, the scenery is still first-class, and the service of the hotel is very good. The steward Salmen is very friendly. It is always far away that Eric warmly greets us."

"The environment is no problem, living in the water house villa on the sea. I feel that the facilities are general, the grades are not high, the most want to spit is that the meals are too bad, I feel that every meal is not enough!"
"The hotel is very good, it will be greasy to eat the same breakfast every day."

Emboodhu Finolhu, South Male’ Atoll, Maldives, Maldives

"The old 5 star island, the equipment feels a bit old, the most unfortunate thing is that there is only one Chinese employee on the island or dive center, it is with my parents, they are not good English, they are both on the island Nothing to say. There are many Japanese people on the island, and Japan Go is very enthusiastic about talking with Japanese guests and making people look envious. The service is just like the general, just a lot of professional smirk. At the end of the day, when the island was arranged in a mess, the housekeeper did not know when we left, and the night before, someone called to confirm the time of the island. After sitting on the speed boat, I waited for another half of the day, and a European who had a child was angry. Just... it’s gone. In addition, the fish you can see is a bit monotonous and a bit boring. Finally, at the airport, the hotel staff directly handed us over to the black tour guide? ? ?"
"This resort is simply luxuriously awsome ! My booking was for 2 nights and I extended one more night. Water Villa and Lagoon Villa, exotic ocean views with surprises by nature, Sharks and Sting rays around you, i would highly recommend to everyone. Gorgeous lagoons"
"It was a shame that the weather was not good, but there were some Japanese staff members who were very kind. The children were very happy to see ray and fish nearby by feeding ray and fish."

Dhigufinolhu Island, PO Box 2014, South Male Atoll, Maldives, Maldives
24.2km from Ibrahim Nasir International Airport
"The hotel is approximately 30 minutes from the Male International Airport and costs a charge. The airport has a special person to pick up, very convenient. The environment on the island is beautiful, the sea is blue-green, and the beach is white and delicate. The rooms are large and well equipped with a reasonable layout. There are several restaurants, especially Thai restaurants. But take a boat for 5 minutes to go to another island. Special thanks to Ctrip's service. When I booked the hotel, I encountered a little episode. Ctrip had an unreasonable communication and coordination, and finally solved the problem. I am very touched! Praise"
"The cost of the island is very high, and any service will charge a service fee. Breakfast is free, dinner is free, but there will be an additional service charge. Evening water is also charged, and a glass bottle of water costs $12. Plus service charge, accommodation is a sea water house, the environment is good. There is only a piece of glass in front of the toilet to look directly at the sea, and no other rooms. There are still many fish species on the snorkeling island. There are opportunities to see turtles and devil fish, but there are basically no living coral reefs around the island. All of them are dead."
"This hotel is worthy of praise in any aspect! First of all, the water room is very large, there is a children's bed, and the floor-to-ceiling windows face the sea, perfect. The sand house is also very good, the layout is reasonable, the small courtyard in the middle of the road, the leisure garden directly to the beach, is also perfect! It is recommended to have breakfast and dinner at the time of booking, which will save a lot of money. The service is also in place, warm and thoughtful. Highly recommended!"

"The water house is really good, the room facilities and services are top-notch. There is a piece of glass on the floor inside the room to see the sea below. Each water house has a small pool of infinity, perfect for taking pictures. The sea is also very clear, there are many coral reefs, and there are many fish. You can see a lot from the room, and the snorkeling equipment hotel is free. The beach here seems to be very good, but it is a pity that I only stayed for one night and didn't go. There are two restaurants on the island, one Japanese restaurant needs an appointment, the other western restaurant does not need to make an appointment, and the production is not bad, but it is relatively simple, basically a main course of 20-30 dollars. Reservations are available as early as possible, and other meals can be ordered at the restaurant. Breakfast must be praised, the butler can be sent to the room, sitting on the terrace looking at the beautiful sea, leisurely to eat. There are many stars in the evening, very beautiful. Overall, an island with good value for money, not far from Male, the airport transportation fee of 130 dollars a room is slightly more expensive. The island is relatively small. After walking for 15 minutes, it is recommended to play for 2-3 days. It is boring to live again. The island is beautiful."
"Beautiful coral reef! Sea Villa .. Every morning sunrise and dusk make us unforgettable! Breakfast is rich: butler service and guidance in all aspects give full marks"
"The island is not big, it’s not gone yet."

"The weather is too bad and the hotel water house is good. The sand house is generally very rusty and not delicate. The hotel environment is not recommended because there are too many boats nearby and you can see the city of Male without the feeling of a water island and the land is too close at night Looking around, the lighting of the building in the distance is very poor. If the hotel on the four islands of Madai is the worst environment"

K-North Male' atoll, Maldives, Maldives

"Moving here from Banyan Tree has a completely different style. The island is relatively large, with more than one hundred villas, built in 2017, so it is very modern and completely different from the quaint style of Banyan Tree. The bathrooms and appliances are very modern, comparable to hotels in the city, but the furniture has a primitive style. Children play a lot, such as rock climbing, table football, chess, etc. The activity area is semi-outdoor (airy), very cool and comfortable. The breakfast is very rich, you can eat freshly fried dishes, as well as Cantonese-style soup. Reminder that in general, I feel that the hotels in Madai are more likely to make mistakes. The three I have stayed in have errors. I don't know why, so there is no harm in watching the bill carefully:)"
"About 20 minutes by speed from Malé, our order does not include the cost of the island. It costs an additional 180 dollars per person. This island is not big but the facilities have a good breakfast. There is a small surprise in the water. Chinese food and dinner are all served in the bar, sour and sweet chicken rice, Thai fried rice, roasted chicken, children, and the amount is enough. The island has more water in the Middle East. There is a Taiwanese sister who has a Chinese and foreign company. The overall service is very nice. We know that we are ten at night. The flight to the point gave us a delay until 7:00 in the evening."
"Ordered a beach house and a water house. The number of beach houses is relatively small and expensive. If children in the water house are required to sign an additional exemption clause, the truth is a bit scared, but it is very unique and worth the experience. The room design is very user-friendly, there are many sockets, it is very convenient to use, and the air conditioner is very new. The island with fewer people than others will be more lively here, depending on whether your personal interests are lively or quiet."

"It is a fate that guides us to choose Full Moon Island as our first destination to the beautiful Maldives. It’s really beautiful here, the crystal clear sea, the white sand beach, let people leave and leave. . . Full Moon Island is very small. It takes less time to walk through the whole island. The rooms here are mainly divided into sand houses and water houses. For safety reasons, children are not allowed in all water houses. We took the baby to the deluxe room, just beside the beach. We were very late when we boarded the island. The staff warmly welcomed us at the welcome pier. Just take out the passport and the blacks will For the check-in, there will be someone who drives a battery car and pulls it to the room and carries the luggage. The service is very warm. We were placed in the most in the middle of the room, the disadvantage is that it is a little far from the restaurant, the advantage is very quiet. The geckos here are really a lot. They come out at night and make people feel cute and scared. [尴尬] Batman is also the biggest bat I have ever seen so much. I often see small lizards on the island. Some are afraid, but still very friendly. Regarding the additional events, we only participated in an capital city tour and it is really not recommended. . . If you can, go to Male and turn around. The whole family is not big, the focus is on heating up, and there are some routines, such as taking you to the designated households to buy things (fortunately not forced). If you have enough money, you can take a deep dive and see the most beautiful coral reefs in the world. Regarding the meal, I really strongly recommend going to Madai regardless of which island, with a little instant noodles, don't ask me why. Hahahahahaha"
"The Full Moon Island Sheraton stay experience is still very good. Compared with other islands, there are fewer mosquitoes in the room that will not affect the rest. The breakfast is more local and the staple food is too rich. If you stay for two nights or more, you can get one free A snorkeling experience voucher. Each person will experience it once per stay. Go to a nearby fish aquarium island. The white coach is very handsome. Another coach called mango teaches snorkeling is the best. Equipment, make an appointment one day in advance, and change your swimsuit before you go. Generally, the first snorkeling training is started at 9:10 am. The boat is pulled at 10 o'clock to attract tourists. Snorkeling is very addictive. It ’s not expensive to go for 40 dollars at a time. It ’s about 45 minutes at a time. The price of a steak is pretty good. The gym facilities are outdated but can still be used. You can go with your card 24 hours, and you can go to the water house Be sure to take a look at the notes at the bottom of the balcony table in Chinese. It is not recommended to snorkel by yourself, because corals are relatively hard. Of course, there are snorkeling equipment, except for beach shoes. My socks are not scratched in the water, but there are sharks in shallow waters, but it is a baby shark. I asked the hotel staff and said that they do n’t bite. If you have scratches, do n’t worry about it. Go to the island ’s clinic. The eye doctor compares nice."
"Because the whole trip is 4 nights at Jumeirah, 2 nights at Sheraton, and 5 nights at four seasons, I can only speak for one penny, and I have never seen a Chinese-speaking guide throughout the island. So do n’t choose this one if you do n’t speak English. In addition, because of the penny and the goods, there is only a 10-minute round-trip car on the island. It can be said that there is no service during the whole journey. The facilities are relatively old, the children's playground has slides and places to play in the water, but it is not large. The seaside villa is not right on the beach, can not swim, and has a lot of noise. It is noisy to sleep at night. Feeding sharks at 5:30 every day, there are still many dining options. The advantage is that the price is very affordable, and the service and room are not high. You can choose to live here and go to the beach to swim."
