This is our 2 nd visit and dare I say better than the first! Our butler was shark who was massively attentive. All of the staff are wonderful happy and cannot do enough for you. All of the restaurants are amazing and even pull out the stops for a fussy eater. The staff at the spa are great and treatments are so relaxing I did go to the gym which is lovely the view whilst working out is a welcome distraction and the staff again are great. The meal at M6 was sensational and again the staff just make the place. Finally the manager at the gin bar gave us the most amazing champagne tasting session (yes fussy eater also fussy drinker) his knowledge was great. If the Maldives is on your bucket list then you really won’t be disappointed if you come here. Thank you everyone at ozen for being the best hosts. We will be back Read less

Our experience of Ozen was excellent. I was travelling with my wife and 1 year old daughter. This is our first visit to any resort after the pandemic, so we naturally had some fears before we travelled. But our fears were overcome within minutes of reaching ozen. The staff just manage to smile and keep you relaxed throughout your stay. You are assigned a personal butler to help you through your needs 24/7. Our experience, exceeded expectations. To begin with the hotel is only 45 minutes away from the airport by boat, so there is no need to taking any seaplane or domestic flight. The hotel boat works around your travel plans and ensures you are picked up and dropped off in time. I found the rooms to be as good as every top 5 star hotel. Thier bathrooms were open air and exotic. We had a personal pool that was cleaned immaculately everyday. In the earth villa we get a private beach as well which is clear, smooth and just serene. the restaurants (all 5) had good food and the pool bar was open from 10am to 1am, making it one of the most relaxed atmosphere ever. The hotel has many activities that can be done such as massages (excellent), diving, waters ports. The lack of a house reef is probably the only thing missing out. The best thing about this report is it'd staff. I'd repeat the the butler assigned to you OS there for you 24/7 via WhatsApp and is responsive within minutes. The catering staff was so adjusting to our needs (small child, different food timings) that we were speechless. The best part is that they do all of this without any expectations of tips and rewards as is seen in most nation's. Here high quality service was the culture and it was what is the best thing about this resort. If anyone is looking for a few days of a break to just relax, there is no better place to be than ozen @ Maldives. A major shout out to our butler forty, the shefs Pankaj, Rishab, their catering staff lead by Ayushi, the pool bar manager, Manak, with Arjun and Hussain. You guys made our trip the most. Thank you.

What an incredible once in a lifetime vacation at Ozen Life Maadhoo! This luxury lifestyle hotel has everything- water activities, a high end beverage list, gourmet culinary offerings with tons of variety… all included with your stay! In my visit I tried the complimentary Gin tasting where you try multiple gins and learn the history of Indian Tonic water- Manak the Beverage Director was very knowledgeable and shared stories even I as a gin lover had never heard before he was very knowledgeable and fun during the tasting, mention the Gins were fabulous for anyone who appreciates Gin! Additional activities we participated in during the week included swimming with Nurse sharks (a must!), snorkling the robust coral reef (minutes from the resort) and we saw dolphins swim freely during a beautiful sunset cruise. Accommodations are very comfortable with options both on the island side with direct beach access as well as over water villas that are so famous for the Maldives. I was never bored- even during a 14 day stay. The best part though of my stay was the staff and team who made my trip so memorable. Starting from the top- the leadership and care of both Henar and Sajesh, the GM and Hotel Manager, through all departments, everyone made me feel like a princess during my stay, they even coordinated a really special day of recognition during my 40th birthday. If you are celebrating any events during your stay, please make sure your butler knows- I have no doubt they would organize special touches for you as well! While the staff overall was incredible, personally I would love to thank a few key players: Yani, the spa manager who looked after my 6 treatment series that spanned during the stay. She thoughtfully curated a spa journey starting with a jet lag massage and then highlighted all signature services the spa offers. Each therapist was friendly and very skilled at their craft. With each treatment, I felt tension and stress melting away. Thank you Elena spa team!! The Palms team- led by Tyagi in service was flawless. The staff is warm and friendly, always fast to fill a wine glass or clear a plate to make room for another round to the beautifully appointed buffet, everyone was incredible. If you visit, make sure to say hello to Affan, he was definitely my favorite server- tons of personality and care- he is a true gem. The quality of culinary throughout the resort from Traditions, M6M to Palms was truly top notch. Great variety, plating was beautiful, and there truly is something for everyone. Special thanks to both Chef Varun and Chef Pankag, they were actively checking in on me and all guests during each meal. It is clear they really care of how people enjoy their dining experience- I was very impressed with how genuine and engaged they are! Saying this birthday trip was a once in a lifetime experience is an understatement. The team at Ozen Life Maadhoo exceeded every expectation and dream I had about spending my special birthday in the Maldives. I would recommend this resort without hesitation for a future special stay. Suffice it to say, the worst part of my stay was when I had to say good bye and yet even then they sent me off with a kind wave from the pier as my boat started the return journey home. Read less
