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, and pizzeria 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.

Two weeks ago we returned from this magical island, our third visit. Being on holiday here there was still the excitement as the speedboat reached the jetty. Lovely to see so many familiar faces waiting to greet us, including our butler Shark. This truly was like meeting old friends. We had requested the same room if possible and we were not disappointed . It really did feel like coming home. Shark had made all our dining reservations for us. Two weeks of sheer luxury was about to start. As always everywhere we went we were met with a smile and a greeting. Food as always was superb in all the restaurants. The spa was lovely with a lovely touch of a welcome back decorating the beds. Moosa in the Indoceylon looked after us so well along with chef Hari. Niyaz in the Peking again was on hand along with the chef to cook us some special meals. The chef at the cooking station at breakfast new my husband loved eggs Benedict and saw us walking over the bridge and a huge smile and a thumbs up every morning as it was prepared without having to ask. Girls in the M6 served us beautiful meals along with wine pairing. After the first week Shark went on holiday and Areef took his place. Visiting us everyday making sure we were happy and well looked after. The guy who cleaned our room every day (sorry forgot his name) was an absolute star, decorating our bed with flowers, beautiful swans and a heart and finally a turtle. So clever and what lovely touches. I cannot thank all the staff in the restaurants, bar, gin bar enough. I had a back problem and every single place we went they always made sure I had plenty of cushions at my back, such a caring thoughtful touch. Our mini bar guy was always smiling . So quickly our magical holiday was over. Photos taken and smiles as we said goodbye with a lovely gesture of a Bon Voyage cake. I have now had my spinal operation and these wonderful memories and treatment we received from you all gave me the relaxation I needed. All being well we hope to come back next year for our Fourth time. How can you change perfection , it was an amazing two weeks. Thank you Ann & Ray Read less

First time visit to the Maldives and stayed for 9 nights, 4 in a Wind Villa and 5 in an Earth Villa, both without a pool but with the Indian Ocean at your disposal who wants a pool. Difficult to choose which one we preferred more but for the time of year we would say the sunrise side of the island is better than the sunset due to the calm lagoon. No house reef but plenty of fish available to make friends with whilst snorkelling around and twice daily reef trips make up for those that want more. We spent a lot of time deliberating over which island to visit but the whole package and true to published ‘All Inclusive’ made this the place for us, and we were not wrong. We can’t add to the superlatives that have already been said about this Paradise Island, everything written is absolutely spot on, and some. The only thing we can add is a special thanks to certain members of staff for making our truly magical holiday extra special. Moosa, Erika, Niyaz, Baari, Ibbe, Nazeem, Robert and many many more, you guys are a credit to Ozen as are all other members of staff from the guys clearing the beaches in the morning and doing the gardening to the staff working in the Palms, Indian, Peeking, M6M, Raw Bar and JDV up to the management not forgetting the girls at the SPA. The quality of food is Micheline star worthy in all the establishments (even the JDV lunchtime snacks) and we have eaten in some of the best places around. Forget the cocktail list as the guys will make you whatever you want and even surprise you with a special if requested. We were a bit sceptical about the weather but for us the last 9 days in June were paradise on earth although we did have to endure the odd fluffy cloud and 5 minutes of rain one day. Not sure about the night time weather as we were fast asleep in our heavenly accommodation. Point to note is smart casual for the evening wear is nice to see but not a must, shoes or sandals are definitely not required unless you are walking on the bridges during the afternoon or off on one of the boat trips. Having travelled all over the world I am not sure how we can top this so looks like we will be back!! Ms W & Mr S xx Read less

My wife and I spent 9 days at Ozen in March, my delay in reviewing our trip has basically been down to not knowing how to add any further value to the typical comments and reviews it is a pleasure to read. I am only commenting now as I feel they strongly deserve another 5 star rating and, I am exploring re-booking a trip there later this year or early 2020, which I guess is proof itself. I have had the fortune to have many fantastic holidays with my wife for many different reasons and this is probably one of the best. It certainly was the best food, best service, probably the best place and, great weather. And, its a pleasure to say I will be going back. Read less
