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.

Right from the time we were received at the airport till our drop back.. everything was so perfect and couldn’t find a single reason to complain about. We had stayed at the over water pool villa and the endless views of the blue ocean with lagoon access was the highlight.… you pay for luxury and luxury treatment is what you get… the indulgence package is such a cool option.. every expense including the excursions is already taken care of … the staff are so friendly and so ready to go that extra mile to keep the guests pampered.. Hats off to the Ozen Maadhoo team.. at this point I would like to specifically thank our Personal Butler Baari, housekeeping staff Saiful who made sure our stay was super comfy- from the F&B Dept-Ayoshi, Carol, Latheesh who came by everyday and personally made sure we didn’t lack in any thing at the restaurant, Prajwal at Joie De Vivre who served up the great margaritas / cocktails. The snorkeling and fishing trip guides… Not to forget Sini who assisted with the reservation process. Thank you for giving us a memorable stay and we hope to be back again .. at Ozen Maadhoo.

This was simply the most amazing trip we have ever done: from the amazing water villa with pool, to the genuine friendly staff, outstanding food and amazing views all around. We had a private butler who organized everything we did (reservations, trips, covid tests, etc...), experienced the many restaurants available including an under water one, tried the incredible SPA, dolphin watching, jet skying, snorkeling, fishing, you name it. Great weather (not too hot, lovely sea breeze) with no rain, warm sea and pool water, clear blue sea, white sandy beaches. Another great plus is the fact that you get picked up by boar straight from the airport and it is just a 40 min ride. No local planes! Read less

Spent a blissful and wonderful 8 days in this paradise! The location/view/beach/ocean were perfect as expected. What put this over the top for me as such a great honeymoon/vacation were the people/staff and service to go along with the food and drinks. The staff was excellent. Baari was our personal butler who made sure that everything we wanted was taken care of, without us even thinking about it. Aayushi - restaurant manager and Anoop at the joie de vivre lounge were so welcoming and polite and so personable. I am forgetting all of the wonderful people that we met, but the entire Ozen staff made this a trip of a lifetime that my fiancé and I will never forget, Read less
