Host Nicole was very kind and it was nice to make our Maldives trip more enjoyable and safe. It was nice to see Joseph very kind and friendly to Somulier. The condition of the villa was great and the cleaning service was very satisfactory. If you visit the Maldives again, it's a resort you really want to come back to. I strongly recommend it.

Apart from the sheer natural beauty, crystal clear water and abundant marine life, our lasting impression will be the incredible attentive staff and surprisingly, the quality of the food. Hasyn was our assigned point of contact or “Villa host”. Hasyn really was a star and made our stay so smooth and relaxing. We also took full advantage of the spa and had some incredible massages. Emerald Faarufushi very much exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend it to everyone. Read less
