Well, we read the reviews before we went, so we expected an amazing holiday. But it was a holiday of constant surprises - all of them good. So I'm not going to tell you about the amazing service, the extraordinary staff, the outstanding food or the beautiful environment. I'm going to tell you about the amazing extras...… - If the staff are playing a football tournament while you are there, make sure you catch some of the matches - the standard is amazing and the intensity of the ambition is extraordinary. You will be an honoured guest. - And then, play the footballers at Volleyball. They turn up, sweaty from the football pitch, because the guests want to play. - Go to every one of the Marine Biologist's talks (Jasmine) and ask her lots of questions. She is knowledgeable and full of joy about the environment you will be living in - especially if you snorkel or dive. - Be adventurous in your snorkelling. Don't just stay on the house reef (lovely though it is) - we saw our best things (rays, turtles, a swimming eel) off the house reef, at the drop off, on the sandy flats or in the bay. Even if you're not a confident swimmer. why miss out on the amazing sealife just below the surface. Ask the beach staff, Jasmine or at the dive centre and they will tell you where to avoid the currents and where to see the best things. - Be part of the coral regeneration programme. The hotel is trying to increase the reef in the area and we are proud to have sponsored a coral frame. Pay back a little bit for the special times you have. - Introduce yourself to the Executive Chef (Sven). He hovers in the restaurant at every meal, without being intrusive, but just to make sure that everything is perfect. His staff don't seem intimidated - he seems to get on very well with them. - Mention any tiny niggle to the staff at the first possibility. They really will try to make your holiday perfect. Another guest told us that they had replaced his mattress because it wasn't right for him - just because he'd mentioned it in passing to a spa therapist. We had a problem with our safe - which they sorted within minutes, by just replacing the safe. - Go on the back of house tour. Satisfy yourself that they are doing all they can for the environment. Understand the dynamics of catering on a small island, miles from the nearest food processing plant. - Revel in the fact that, by the end of the holiday, you really will fell part of the family. They greet you like friends at every meal, you know your housekeeping hero (Naswan) very well and you know the management team by name (Hi Sasha!!). We feel seriously homesick now that we're home. - And finally, expect the unexpected. For us, it was being involved in relocating a turtle nest with Jasmine. 89 ping pong sized eggs, still tender and slightly pink. For you - who knows...... Read less

When we arrived in the Maldives, nothing could have prepared us for how we felt on arrival. We had literally arrived in paradise. Just a short hop on the sea plane (amazing experience with stunning views!) to reach Constance Moofushi and we were greeted with handshakes by some of the staff on arrival. One of the staff, Eve then took us to reception where we had a welcome drink and flip flops waiting for us. Eve showed us around the island and then to our water villa and we just couldn’t believe how incredible it all was. In our first 24 hours, we couldn’t believe just how much marine life we had seen! The resort was immaculate, the staff were extremely helpful and we got to know a few faces quite quickly. Somehow some staff knew who we were even though we had never met them! The service we received was incredible but we never felt like it was too much, it was all very relaxed and the atmosphere was perfect. Although the resort was fully booked when we were there, we never thought it was really busy which helped with the relaxed days. It was all very chilled. The food on the island was just divine. The team in the kitchen worked so hard to produce a wide variety of dishes that were all exemplary. We dined one night at the A La Carte restaurant – the food there was even more delicious. Read less

Our second trip to Moofushi proved to be just as amazing as we remembered - and the bar was set pretty high! Everyone without exception made us feel so welcome and practically treasured! Particular thanks go to Reefkhan in the Manta restaurant who went above and beyond especially in arranging a trip to the sandbank complete with champagne, a cool box and sunbeds - our own desert island for a few hours - we will never forget this fabulous experience. Thanks Reefkhan! Also Sam in the Manta restaurant who helped get us to the sandbank on his morning off! Gopan at the Totem bar was always so smiley and provided wonderful Totem Collins cocktails regularly! This is a truly special place and from our fabulous water villa no. 72 - we were even granted our wish to have the same villa we had the first time! - to the amazing food and wine - you could not ask for more. We miss you Moofushi - hope to see you again soon! Read less

We have not been to this resort for three years but the place and people continue to provide a wonderful experience. The island of course is still stunningly beautiful but it is the people that really make this holiday. Alll guests are treated with great courtesy and the staff cannot do enough for them. KD, Rifkhan and Hassan in the restaurant are always attentive and making sure that you have all that you want. There is a new head chef at the resort, Sven, and he is very keen to promote the fantastic array of food that is on offer. I am sure he will add his own twist to the menus over time. The beach is kept immaculate, as are the gardens. The rooms are kept very well, it we only use these to sleep in as most of the day is spent on the beach or in the water. Both of the bars on the small island have great staff and many thanks to Gopan and Ramu in the Totem bar and Anthony with his amazing cocktails in the Manta bar for keeping us supplied during the fortnight we were there. Water sports are great with snorkelling, swimming, kayaking, paddle boards etc. Henri the resident manager is always on hand to talk to guests and make sure they are having the time of their lives. Anything you need from the reception staff is amazingly handled by Azu. We can’t fault this place and anybody that goes there will have a once in a lifetime experience. Being our fifth visit we count ourselves as being very fortunate to have found this gem. Once again many thanks to all of the staff there who are the real key to this holiday. Read less

Having stayed in a Constance before we chose Moofushi as we trust the Constance brand and we're not disappointed. From the moment we were greeted at Male airport we were made to feel uniquely individual and this remained throughout the holiday. The staff are Moofushi's significant strength and go out of their way to ensure you have a luxurious and relaxed holiday. Sasha has developed a great team and is a very visible and friendly leader. Our water villa was gorgeous, kept spotlessly clean and we could snorkel from the steps. The colours of the sand and sea are stunning and etched in the memory. The bare foot idea is lovely and even works when you go for dinner. The tour of the back of house is really interesting especially seeing how Sven manages the food ordering when you can't just pop to the shops! The staff in the spa are amazing, we went three times during our holiday that's how good it was. Sunrise yoga on the deck was very enjoyable while watching sunset from the couples deck after a treatment, celebrating 30 years of marriage is rather special. Jasmine, the marine biologist gives interesting talks and her trip around the reef is a good way to start snorkelling here. Sponsoring a coral frame will help ensure we protect our oceans. We saw so many fish, manta rays, reef sharks and dolphins. We also took advantage of the complimentary photo shoot and purchased a photo book so have wonderful memories of our trip to Moofushi. We met several people who were returning guests and the whole experience of the resort made it clear to see why. We shall be back, not something we usually do. Thank you to every member of Moofushi for their commitment to the resort. Read less
