OZEN by Atmosphere at Maadhoo, Maldives

Maldives, Indian Ocean

The hotel

This is no ordinary Maldivian island.

Everything you need is covered. There are champagne breakfasts, scrumptious lunches, and dinners at its international, IndoCeylon, Peking, R.A.W and Joie de Vivre restaurants. There are bottomless drinks with Champagne, whiskies, international beers, premium spirits, and more than 80 wines. There’s your complimentary mini-bar, topped up twice a day. There are unlimited snorkelling excursions and non-motorised water sports. And, the longer you stay, the more complimentary diving or spa treats you get.

I booked a stay here several months back with the option of free cancellation. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic I had to cancel my trip unfortunately and was promised the money would be returned within 14 days from the date of cancellation. Here we are 2 months later and I still haven’t received my refund or one telephone call back from any member of this poorly run establishment. I have had to contact my booking agent to assist me as they do not answer telephone calls and when you do connect someone says they cannot help and they will get someone to call back but they never do. They have made excuse after excuse and the latest one is that I provided the wrong Iban number (I didn’t) however I had to call my booking agent for them to tell me this. Why can’t they just refund the money back to the credit card I paid the FULL balance with like most respectable organisations? First they blamed COVID 19, then the bank and now it’s my error. As it stands at the moment I am the victim of theft as they have stolen thousands of pounds and not fulfilled the terms and conditions of the booking. I am now seeking legal advice as I am not any closer to getting this resolved and they have no interest in returning my money! DISGUSTING behaviour from a so called 5 star resort! I have been to the Maldives many times and never experienced anything like this. Book elsewhere guys and be aware they will quite literally take your money and disappear if given the chance!

I’ve waited a long time to write this review because I really wanted to reflect on our holiday and experience here. It was almost completely perfect aside from a few things. I must mention that we are not accustomed to expensive holidays so it isn’t a case of high standards. We saved very hard for a luxury honeymoon and would probably never be able to spend that sort of money again! There are so many amazing things about this place, we loved the staff, restaurants, location, villa. The few things that let it down for us:- We had a wind Villa with pool, the pool could have been cleaned/better more often. There wasn’t much atmosphere... no pun intended... I felt sorry for the DJ playing to an empty bar every night. After dinner we’d always go for a drink or two and it was practically empty. There was nothing ‘fun’ happening. I know this is a honeymoon hotspot so I’m sure couples are having private time in their rooms but it made the evenings a bit dull. I have to say the worst thing of all is how after a lovely week of top service you are literally no longer a guest the second you step back on the boat. On the way to the island they provide fresh/cold water, hot/cold flannels etc.. but once you’re on that boat back home all those little touches are nowhere to be seen. It makes the whole experience really sad- we were already sad about leaving but felt almost let down after an amazing and very expensive week to be discarded the second we stepped on that boat home. If they could extend the little touches up until you reach the airport it would make the whole thing so much more personal. So on the whole nothing major, but that’s what made it 4* from me Read less

Where to start.... My wife and I and our two boys 8 and 13 arrived for a 7 day holiday mid March. Having read and heard so many great reports about Ozen we were excited to arrive and enjoy a family break. We were greeted at Male airport straight after clearing customs then transferred to our speedboat. A short 45 mins to resort where we were greeted by Lisa (resort manager) and her team. Over the next few days we enjoyed M6M the marvelous under water restaurant, Palms restaurant, JDV pool bar (possibly the best pool bar and pool anywhere),swimming with dolphins and reef fishing. I have grouped these together as all deserve a separate review in their own right. However all can be classed as exceptional, memorable and a joy to experience. They all share similar qualities - outstanding staff, highest quality cuisine, attention to detail across all areas. From the team ensuring the beaches are clean (seagrass) every morning (they work so early we have not seen them). House keeping from first day to last was exceptional. Fine Dining ...... In addition to M6M/Palms and JDV we also ate in IndoCeylon and Peking, both were very good. Its not often we have an opportunity to enjoy seamless service. My family and I experienced this daily from breakfast to sundown. The quality of cuisines provided is only equaled by the fabulous staff, whom I cannot compliment enough. My oldest son and I started and completed our open water PADI courses, enjoying 6 dives in different locations. The dive team took two complete novices and built our confidence and we have well and truly caught the scuba diving bug, fabulous team. There is a little more to this story as we have covered a lot in 6 days. The world changed soon after our arrival and COVID19 stopped all travel. The Ozen resort went from busy to ..... just us (we have no way home). We spent 50 days in Ozen Atmosphere making many friends and memories which we will remember fondly forever. What makes me write this review is most people when looking at Maldivian resorts will struggle to see the difference between one beautiful resort to another. At Ozen the service, daily smiles and the genuine people we had the pleasure of spending time with did not change from our arrival to departure. Impeccably professional and a truly wonderful resort.

Professional, kind, courteous and went out of their way to make our time memorable. They met us at the boat dock, walked us to the reception area, and we were checked in and given a tour of the property. The food was amazing, housekeeping came 2x/day and the butler helped us plan our week of activities! Thank you Ozen for a week I will never forget!
