We stayed for 10 nights on Moofushi in December 2019 to celebrate our wedding anniversary and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Prior to booking we’d extensively researched and for many reasons, Constance Moofushi seemed to be the perfect island for us. Our holiday started as soon as we touched down in Male with the staff of Constance Moofushi escorting us to the TMA sea plane check in where our bags were taken care of and we were transferred by minibus to the comfortable sea plane lounge to await our flight to the island. As soon as we were welcomed off the seaplane, we knew that we’d made the right choice in choosing Constance Moofushi. The inner part of the island is green and lush with well-tended gardens, palm trees, bushes and beautiful flowers. We couldn’t believe that the island was at 75% occupancy as we didn’t see many other guests during our stay and there was no part of it that was even faintly crowded. Whilst children are allowed, from our experience this doesn’t affect your enjoyment. We chose a beach villa and it was perfect for us. It was nestled in the heart of the trees right on the beach, giving us privacy and the added bonus of the visiting birds who it turned out were also very funny and quite tame. In the evening we only had a short stroll to and from dinner to our room. The air conditioning in the room was very welcome and worked perfectly. We loved waking up and walking onto the beach and then into the sea. The open air rain shower had a lovely view up to the swaying palm trees beneath the blue sky. Our room was kept wonderfully clean by Sirjit and Lubaan who provided meticulous, speedy and unobtrusive housekeeping. The snorkelling around the island house reef is excellent and easily accessible. I would recommend that you start with an introduction to the Moofushi reef with Estrella – the island’s passionate and knowledgeable resident marine biologist who taught me so much about the corals and the fish I saw. I also paid to go on a snorkelling trip to two coral reefs. The sea was quite choppy and the current was quite strong, so you need to be a proficient swimmer. The free snorkelling equipment loaned to you for the duration of your stay is basic, so you may wish to consider taking your own. If you’re not a fan of snorkelling you can still see fish from the dry seat of a pedalo! My husband did the behind the scenes tour accompanied by the executive chef and chief engineer. He came back with so many facts and figures and was totally blown away by the mechanics, cleanliness, organisation and dedication of a really passionate and professional team. We found everyone (and I mean everyone – including the gardener and back of house maintenance staff) to be so helpful, friendly, interesting and genuinely happy to be working on Moofushi. No review can be complete without mentioning the food and drink! Both were superb. Sven, the executive chef and his team produce the most wonderful international menus offering masses of choice. Everything is made on the island including the breads and the puddings. A special thank you to Mod who looked after us night after night, welcoming us to the Manta restaurant and showing us to our favourite tables where we watched the reef sharks swim and the crabs dance under the lights. I also have to mention the lovely chef who dexterously sliced up a fresh mango for me each evening - always smiling, always happy. We were a bit sceptical that the quality, quantity and choice of wines would be limited (beig on an island) but this was not the case. There’s an extensive range of really super wines. The sommelier team are friendly and happy to advise you on wine pairing but if you know what you like or want to stay with what you’ve had the previous night; they don’t push you to try something different. We can thoroughly recommend the Totem bar. Aside from being relaxed and having a great view of the sea planes coming in to land, it has an excellent lunch menu as well as some great tasting snacks in the afternoon. It’s also a super spot for watching the sun set into the Indian ocean. Whether we were having lunch (a scrumptious wagu beef burger), a cocktail before dinner or a glass or two of Prosecco during the afternoon by the pool, we were always wonderfully served by the attentive and engaging staff at the Totem bar. We have such fond memories of our chats with Pincher who made the most amazing palm leaf origami, Jon on his career, and Shysaan for his wonderful sense of humour and captivating laughter. We can also thoroughly recommend the Alizee a la carte restaurant. The menu choices are varied, and the setting is amazing. Our table was on the beach just yards from the water’s edge under the trees, lanterns and moonlight. The food tasted amazing and was beautifully presented. Thank you everyone at Moofushi for making our holiday so amazing and just perfect. We hope to see you again. Read less

I really do not know where to start to describe how amazing our experience at Moofushi was. It was just great and perfect! The place is a paradise but the services and the attention to details of Constance is what makes the difference. The staff is always there to assist you with everything you need, great and lovely people always smiling and very sensitive. The food is of very high level in both restaurants and totem bar has the perfect and healthy solution for those who want to grab a quick but tasty bite before going back to the beach at the sea. Good wine selection and cocktails offer in the two bars as well. Fresh ingredients always available. Rooms are spacious both in the beach and water villas. Spa offer is various and the staff is descrete, gentle and again very attentive. I am already missing everything of it and I hope we’ll manage to go back soon and taking our family with us. We 100% recommend Constance and Constance Moofoshi for Maldives. Read less

We spent 1 week at Constance Moofushi (from the 15 to 22 of December) and our only regret is that we did not stay longer. Everything was just perfect from time we landed in Male international airport to our emotional departure on the 22th. The arrival: At our arrival a staff of the hotel (I am very sorry I do not remember her name) welcomed us and took care of our bags and the check-in for the Seaplane. As soon as we stepped out of the Seaplane Sasha, Henry and their team welcomed us in this paradise on heart: white sands, crystal clear water with small and friendly sharks swimming. The resort is luxurious and it is beautifully embedded in the nature of the island. The check is was very smooth thanks to Arun and Selene. The room: We stayed in a beautiful over the water villa (118) that was cleaned twice a day by Mohamed that really did an amazing job. The room is spacious and with all the comfort you need. The minibar was full of soft drinks, wine, beer and snacks and it was fill every day. Food and Drinks: the all inclusive in this island is a serous thing and it is taken to the next level. In the island you will find a buffet restaurant (Manta), the Totem Bar by the pool, the Alizee a la carte Restaurant and the main bar. The head chef, Sven and his Team make an amazing job. I really have to thank Mani ( he took great care of me and all my food intollerances), Dulip and Moe. All the food was great (Pizza is one of the highlight and being Italian I am really picky) and the staff at the restaurant was always smiling and accommodating every requests. We really have to thank Sam and all his team especially Mary and Rasheed. During our lunches and dinners Joseph and Vishal helped us choosing the best paring wines and made sure that our glasses were never empty. In the 2 bars you will find very good quality champagne and spirits. Their selection of signature cocktail is great and Gopan, Dinesh e Praveen were really amazing Activities: we tried to do as many activities as possible, I really recommend the wine tasting done by the water, the cocktail class, the coconut show ( I am very sorry I do not remember the name of the guy that was cutting the coconuts for us), the back of the house tour were Sunil showed us how the entire island and resort work ( it is truly impressive, from the water desalination and purification to the garbage waste used as fertilisers) and the snorkelling done with Estrella ( the in-island biologist). A special thanks also to Miles and his team at the diving center We really hope to have the chance to come back soon. Read less

We are very fortunate to have travelled very widely (this was our 6th holiday in 2019) especially now as we work our way through the "Bucket List". My wife and I booked to stay 7 days at Constance Moofushi through BA holidays - though we flew there and back with Qatar Airways, which was simply outstanding. The BA booking gave us complimentary seaplane flights to and from Moofushi and an excellent discount. We stayed in a Beach Villa, very close to the Totem Bar and restaurant. The main restaurant is a massive buffet and had the widest choice of the tastiest food you could wish for. If you have specific dietary requirements - just ask and the chef's staff will satisfy. The wine stock is huge; I asked one of the Sommeliers if they had Riesling and the response was "we have several different Riesling wines - would you like to taste some of them before choosing?", which we thought was just amazing on such a remote location! The well-groomed gardens, foliage and crystal- clear water and (daily-raked) white sand go to make up a fantastic island environment. The only noise was that of the seaplanes landing and taking off several times a day – always fascinating to watch. Our comfortable room was spacious and well supplied with everything you need, with a well-stocked fridge and lots of wardrobe and shelf space. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and high-end toiletries were replenished daily. We booked the "Back of Office" tour and would highly recommend this fascinating insight at how the staff produce fresh water, power, prepare food and so much more. There were several re-supply boats docking and unloading during our stay, one of which delivered over 600 bottles of wine. There are no handling aids on the island and ALL the staff, (including the General manager down), take it in turn to carry supplies from the jetty to the central technical complex - what excellent leadership! Some 240 staff look after around 200 guests. There were so many staff we would like to thank by name but our memories (we are elderly) have failed us so we apologise to all of you wonderful people. ALL the staff who looked after us, including everyone else behind the scenes deserve our highest commendation. This was, without doubt, the most relaxing and memorable holiday we have ever taken. We go on holiday to relax and have fun and Constance Moofushi did just that and more. We tried hard to find fault and failed. The service was simply outstanding, the food and beverages served were nothing short of World Class excellence, together with a charming Island environment, all of which is nothing short of Paradise on Earth.
