I was very excited to visit Olhuveli and experience it for myself as it is one of our best value islands in the Maldives. I'm pleased to report that I was incredibly impressed with the quality of standards and service throughout and couldn't fault my stay!
The restaurant choices were great and I particularly enjoyed dining barefoot in the Lagoon Restaurant - it certainly made for a very relaxing lunch. My favourite rooms were the Grand Beach Villas as these spacious detached rooms were located on the sunrise side of the island overlooking the tranquil, turquoise lagoon that surrounds the island - a stunning setting. With a great kids club, a lovely relaxing spa and a great selection of water sports there really is something to keep everyone happy - highly recommended!
