Hotel Reviews

The first stroke of awe hits you the moment you set eyes on Raffles Maldives. Nestled in the exotic charm of the Indian Ocean, Raffles is accessible through a domestic flight followed by a quick speedboat transfer from Male International Airport. It's not just the destination, but the journey that adds to the thrill of the escape. And what an awe-inspiring journey it is, perfectly setting the stage for what's to come!


The moment I arrived at Raffles, I was greeted with warm smiles, a refreshing drink, and a panoramic view of the Indian Ocean that could steal anyone's heart. Check-in was smooth and swift, leaving no room for fatigue. This first impression alone speaks volumes about the hospitality and the bespoke service Raffles promises its guests.


My living experience at Raffles Maldives was a fantastic blend of luxury and comfort. I spent my days in two exquisite settings - the Beach Villa and the Overwater Villa. The Beach Villa, surrounded by lush vegetation, opened up to the mesmerizing white beach, offering an exclusive slice of paradise. On the other hand, the Overwater Villa was a floating haven with a breathtaking view of the expansive ocean. Waking up to the sight of the shimmering turquoise water was an experience to cherish.


The resort is a treasure trove when it comes to entertainment options. The culinary delights at Raffles Maldives left me spellbound. From a mouthwatering BBQ under the stars at The Firepit, to a fine fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisines at Yuzu, Nikkei Cuisine - every meal was a celebration. Let's not forget the breakfast spread at Thari that never failed to kick start my day on a high note!

For the adrenaline junkie in me, the house reef was a major highlight. Teeming with vibrant marine life, this was the perfect spot for an unforgettable snorkeling adventure. The assistance of the enthusiastic marine biologist, Amandine, only enhanced this immersive experience.


As for the facilities, Raffles outdid itself. The infinity pool, with its mesmerizing ocean views, became my favorite spot for relaxation. After a day of exploration, the Raffles Spa was the sanctuary I turned to, a place where I could unwind and soak in the tranquility while enjoying a splendid view of the resort.

So there you have it - a sneak peek into my unforgettable journey at Raffles Maldives! From the jaw-dropping location to the world-class facilities, everything about Raffles screamed perfection. If you're seeking a luxurious getaway that offers a bit of everything, look no further!
