Hello. This is Shakira & Natalie. We stayed at Ellaidhoo for about 5 days and it was an amazing experience. We were welcomed from the start of our trip until the very end. The staff was the highlight of the trip. They were phenomenal. To mention a few: Ms. Jacky at the reception, Mr. Marlon, (chef) Mr. Suneth, (chef) Mr. Singh, Osandal, Priyantha, Naufel, Iqubal, Samel and many others that I can’t recall their names at this time. I apologize. They celebrated Natalie’s birthday. They accommodated her needs unexpectedly and made the occasion quite memorable. To this I say, thank you. I am also glad they adhered to Covid restrictions as well and made us feel safe at all times. Thank you all. We will be back. 😊

Our bungalow was a dream, everything you would hope for when you think about a vacation to the Maldives. Outdoor rain shower, beautiful ocean views, and more. However, if you are looking for a full relaxation trip this is for you, if you want more water sports and thrills you may be disappointed. Many of the excursions are dependent on other guests signing with you. The poolside is very quiet, my friend and I thought there would be some music playing, but there wasn't and we felt like if we played some we would be disrupting others/the ambiance. We also were confused as to why, as VIP members why we weren't allowed to dine in the general dining hall. Our hope was to get to meet and interact with more people, but we were only allowed to eat on the water bungalow side. Make sure to read and inquire about all COVID protocols, I did not see any information from the hotel or from the country's health protocols that you could not island-hop without staying the night at a property.
