We had a wonderful time at Ozen Maadhoo. 6 nights was too short! The staff are friendly and go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. We would like to thank Sajesh for the warm welcome; Shristi, Rahul, Aya and Alpoom for the outstanding hospitality at Palms and Shuhaad and Anu, our butlers who were so helpful. Chef Karamji made us feel at home with his bunny chow. Chef Lateesh prepared the most delicious Alaskan Crab at M6M. Chef Sunny at Indoceylon was fantastic - he asked what our favourite food is and prepared a superb butter chicken which wasn't on the menu - this was truly divine! It was the personal touch that made us feel so special. Nida, Baja, Josef and Udo at Dolphin Diving centre were amazing. I'd recommend taking along a waterproof sleeve for your phone or an underwater camera/go Pro as the marine life is beautiful. We didn't - Nida was so kind as to lend us one so we could capture swimming with the Nurse sharks and turtles on video. This is a highly recommended excursion available from the centre! We did the Discover Scuba with Josef who was very experienced and took us to a remarkable dive site where we saw sharks, rays, turtles and thousands of colourful tropical fish. We stayed in the wind villa and then the wind villa with the pool for our last two nights. The wind villas are stunning and have areas with glass bottoms so you can watch the marine life swim. It is also tranquil waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Jugushan serviced our room and ran bubble baths for us in the evening, not forgetting his beautiful towel art! We can't wait to return to the Maldives and visit Maadhoo again in the future. Read less

This was my first trip to Maldives. I must say, it was an unforgettable experience. Everything was just excellent in the Ozen Life Maadhoo resort. I would like to thank Mr. Jerome for extending the best rates while booking my stay, and Mr. Himanshu for the pre-booking of meals. Many thanks to our butler Mr. Anu who helped us seamlessly throughout our visit, we didn’t have to bother about anything. The service was very professional right from Airport pickup, speedboat transfer, villa amenities, meals, excursions, water-sports, spa etc. There are 6 restaurants each with unique cuisine. The best part is that you get a chance to dine at all restaurants, need to pre-book though. Difficult to pick one, as all of them had delicious food. M6M underwater restaurant was icing on the cake, and we got floating breakfast arranged as well. We enjoyed Snorkelling as well as some water-sports (JetSki and Kayak). All in all, it was an exhilarating experience, we would love to visit Maldives and Ozen resort again. Read less
