The hotel

This is no ordinary Maldivian island. Sure it has the turquoise lagoon, powdery sands, and overwater and beachfront villas (all with sunrise or sunset views and some with butler service or lap pools) but, OZEN LIFE MAADHOO, Maldives brings something new to the beach: their Indulgence All Inclusive plan. Everything you need is covered. There are champagne breakfasts, scrumptious lunches, and dinners at its international, IndoCeylon, Peking, R.A.W, M6m and Joie de Vivre 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 daily - even the champagne. There are unlimited snorkelling excursions and non-motorised water sports. And, the longer you stay, the more complimentary diving or spa treats you get.

As a picky eater myself, all I can remember is how delicious their food and beverages we had at the resort were. The ocean was beautiful thanks to the sunny weather but I'm sure this wouldn't be too much different from other resorts in maldives. But the food... always very fresh and exceptional quality with a massive variety. I'm not a fan of Indian food but I found myself falling in love with Indian food at the Indoceylon. Welcoming staff and great service to make our stay smooth and relaxing (kudos to our butler Mujey!) but I wanted to emphasize how this resort can feed you well. For 4/5 cleanness, the pool in our wind villa did not seem to be cleaned when we arrived as there was some hair in the pool. Read less

It was an amazing experience that we didn't make so far. Starting from the warm welcome, the continuous high service level from all the staff up to the top management during the whole stay until leaving this wonderful place was incredible. All our respect to all employes of the island which ensured these very relaxing days which we needed so much.

We had a wonderful five-day stay at Ozen Maadhoo. The island is incredibly beautiful, tranquil, and offers breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The food was truly fantastic, and the attentive staff made us feel exceptionally welcome throughout our visit.

It was our honeymoon trip to maldive. We are so amazed by the beautiful sea and deliscious foods. We got heavier than we arrive here. Our butler, Ayush made reservation for all our request. So we had wonderful time spent here. We expect visiting here again with my family.
