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.

We have just returned from our amazing visit to Ozen. A truly memorable 8 days in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The speedboat from Male takes approx 45mins and you will be greeted by a welcoming committee and given a tour of the island before being dropped off at your room. Your butler will have prepared your itinerary which will include restaurant visits for your stay along with booking you onto a sunset cruise and fishing trip. You can change any element if you wish but it takes all the stress away. Snorkelling trips are twice per day if you want. They are very good, so good in fact that I didn’t bother with a dive! We had an Earth Villa with Pool and it was just what we wanted. Travelling around the island is either on foot, by bicycle or golf buggy. The Indulgence package is excellent and the standard of food offerings at the various restaurants is exceptional. However, what makes Ozen is the friendliness and efficiency of the entire team. Our standout people were: Baarri, our butler and nothing was too much trouble for him to sort. Padmesh, who looked after our villa and produced plenty of towel sculptures. Jenifer looked after us in the Gin Bar with her expert knowledge on all things Gin! Nancy and Nisha kept us laughing as they served us in m6m. We have had a wonderful time and will surely return in future. Thanks all at Ozen! Read less

You have to pinch yourself to believe it and for us it was FAULTLESS. The staff are all incredibly knowledgable, passionate and friendly delivering exceptional standards in all venues. It would be unfair to single any one person out and I can't remember their names! We have never gone back to a resort in all our years of holidaying but we will be going back. Read less

I’m not even sure where to start with this review. All I can say is a big thank you to all the Staff at Ozen for making our honeymoon a memorable one. We landed about 2pm - The speedboat to the hotel from the airport was a pleasant 45 min boat ride away. There was a group of butlers waiting for us on the pier when we arrived. All with big warm smiles, waving us in and welcoming us with handmade necklaces. It truly was a great start to our stay. Check in was fast and easy with our butler Forty introducing himself along with welcoming drinks. We were swiftly taken for a tour of the island in one of the buggies, with Forty explaining where everything was along the way. Our room wasn’t quite ready by the time we arrived, so we were taken to have lunch in the Palms which was more than fine with us. Lunch was buffet accompanied by some rather strong Margarita’s! What a way to start the holiday. Forty then collected us and took us to our wind villa room. He gave us a tour and explained everything we needed to know. The room was stunning, very spacious, with balcony doors opening up from both the bed section and bathroom! The deck has two sun loungers and also a netted area which is very comfortable to lay down on and watch the world go by. Forty had drawn up an itinerary of evening excursions which were lovely. We had pre-booked our restaurant choices in advance except for the two nights, Forty planned in our honeymoon dinner on the beach for our last night which was very nice. I must say at this point I am very impressed at how the staff all knew our names and continued to address us by name throughout our stay. It was a nice touch and we quickly became to learn of theirs in return. All the staff were outstanding with their warmth and service but of course there will always be a few that you befriend along the way. Neyaz who worked in Palms at lunch, and Indochine at Dinner was one of the first who really stood out to us. His friendly and chatty personality made us feel at ease the moment we met him on day one. Armica at LDV was also very Lovely. It was nice to see her when we went in to chat about what we had been up to. Santosh at the Raw sushi bar did an incredible job every day at preparing delicious sushi. Not to mention seeing Neyaaz’s friendly face during these lunches too. The food and drinks across the island were outstanding. The flavours and presentation were mouthwatering good in all of the restaurants even the buffet. Even the snack food at JDV was very good, there’s so much choice to choose from for lunch every day there’s not enough hours in the day to go round eating it all! M6M was definitely an experience we’ll never forget. Nancy our waitress was a delight to talk to, so very knowledgable about the food and wine pairings too. The view just didn’t feel real. We went for lunch as we thought we could see more and we weren’t disappointed. There were lots of colourful fish and coral, however no shark sightings. Would have been nice to see it at night but we were told that you can come in just before the lunch service to take photos if you would like, so might be worth doing that and going for dinner. The hotel grounds were kept looking immaculate at all times. It was nice to stroll round the island every now and then, even to check out the what the other villas looked like. I liked that you could borrow snorkelling gear from the hotel too. Saved you bringing your own mask and fins. Great to use on the snorkelling excursions too which were great fun. We saw more fish on the morning snorkelling trip, even some turtles. The morning and afternoon trips go to two different locations. There’s also life jackets in your room if you wanted to use them to snorkel outside of your room too. Although the sea was always about waist deep, depending on the tide, so probably not that necessary but it’s nice that there was the option. We did see a lot of baby sharks swimming around the island and a few sting rays, however none seemed to approach when in the water, if anything they went the other way. Amazing to see the amount of different fish swimming around under the villa and in the corals near the villas. It was also great that along with the usual toiletries you get in a hotel, that they also supplied and stocked up on their own sunscreen. Again saves you having to pack anyway. I thought it was such a nice touch. The rooms were kept spotless at all times too. Naseer did an amazing job keeping our room tidy and well stocked throughout our stay. We loved the bed decoration he would do, the time and attention it must have taken is just something special. But what I really appreciated above all is the thoughtfulness. The weather sometimes turned when we were out for dinner, which worried me as it was high winds and rain and we usually left our things outside to dry. I would be sitting at dinner thinking we’d go back to the room and our stuff had blown over the deck into the sea, but Neseer had always kindly brought in our things, even moved our snorkelling bag for us so it was out of the rain. Thank you so much Naseer! Minibar drinks and food were restocked twice a day, one about mid day ish and then again in the evening. One thing I would like to ask of the fellow guests is to please respect the islands beauty and natural wild life. I saw people had thrown in their honeymoon cakes into the sea (what a waste!) presumably to try and lure the fish. But worst of all seeing coke cans and glass bottles floating by, quite clearly the contents of someone’s mini bar. I even fished out a champagne bottle that looked like it’d been dropped in a while ago that had sunk just outside the room. It’s heart breaking to think people just don’t care. Especially when the island and sea is so beautiful you should want to keep it that way, not come for a holiday to such a beautiful place and destroy what they have worked so hard to build up and maintain. Lastly, it’s clear to see how well looked after and cared for the staff are. So hats off to the management and family community they have built for their staff. During our stay they gave us a newsletter booklet called Champs. It showcased their staff, and how they get to benefit from the same excursions and experiences guests do to really get a feel for their jobs. The fact they built them a football pitch after listening to what their staff would like, really shows how much they care for them. They really have built such a loving community amongst their staff which is clear to see as a guest as you can see how much they all love their jobs. Well done Ozen for not only being amazing to your guests but also to your staff. Read less
