The resort was amazing. It was better than we expected. The staff, room, and the accommodations were spectacular. The staff was very helpful and tended to every need. They help me plan my surprise proposal to my now fiancé. MAHSIL was amazing and very helpful. Without him I don't think my proposal would've been as memorable.
The room we had was better in person than the pictures. It was so clean and comfortable. Every night after a relaxing day we'd have no troubles falling asleep and staying asleep.
The food, drinks, everything about the resort was top notch. I'd like to visit again when I have time and I highly recommend this resort 👌
Let me just start with this... I can only make one complaint... that I have 0 complaints! I love to be neutral in a review, but with this place, I truly cannot! Everything from stepping off the seaplane when we arrived to getting on the seaplane to go home. When you arrive at the island, the managers and your butlers are there to greet you and give you a tour of the island. Before they do that, you are tested for coivd, and let me just say their doctor is the sweetest woman in the whole world! My husband hates getting the tests because they're uncomfortable, but she had the most gentlest hand, and he barely felt it at all. After your test shows negative, you continue onto your tour and then to your room. During our stay, our butler Kumar was on top of everything and extremely helpful! He made our stay perfect, one night, we wanted to change our restaurant last minute, and Kumar made it work for us. The man was a gem! On the resort, they had multiple restaurants, and let me tell you, the head chef Aldo and his partner Alessio... HATS OFF TO THEM!!! My husband and I are picky eaters; no matter what meal or restaurant, they made sure we enjoyed our meals and ate the food we liked. Ps- they're from Italy and were Italian, so this was the cherry on top! WIthin their restaurants, the employees really make everything come together. They are caring, gentle, and extremely generous. They made sure that every dining experience exceeded our expectations. To talk about the other staff..... WOW, just WOW! Every manager, bellhop, butler, bartender, etc., gave you their all every day! I swear the people in the Maldives do not know what an attitude is or have a bad day ever! I truly cannot recommend this resort enough. The way my husband and I were able to bond with the staff, learn about the island from them, and so much more is something we are forever grateful for. The rooms were cleaned 3 times a day and restocked twice a day. Their cleanliness is above par! Also, the resort preserves the island in its natural state, so on your adventure, you will see all the different animals and water creatures. During your stay, the staff invites you to a cocktail party on the beach, and they really outdid themselves. They all walk around, get to know you ask if you want anything changed. To sum this all up, because you can clearly see this was the perfect trip and this is the perfect resort, everything about the Emerald is 5 star and lives up to its name and more. Thank you for the amazing experience, Emerald! We will be back in the future for sure!!!

Amazing Maldives vibes
We really enjoy stay in Emerald Maldives
Food , service, Room , staff
everything is amazing
This island has its own super energy that fills you ! Clean rooms and fresh food for all tastes
if your vacation takes 2 weeks, I recommend 7 days to live in a villa on the beach and 7 days on the water, so your vacation will acquire a separate charm

KD - Director of F&B
Asir - My one and only friend in Emerald

Beach Grill Restaurant one of my favorite in the world 🌎

Excellent band and DJ music
We will back soon
It’s new and amazing hotel!
Architects and builders managed to preserve the original appearance of the island, skillfully building in the necessary infrastructure.
The placement of family bungalows is well planned in relation to the children's club and the main restaurant Aqua.
I liked the cozy small restaurants with wonderful cuisine! even if something was not on the menu, the chefs happily agreed to cook. there is a children's menu and fresh fruits / berries everywhere.
Separately, I would like to talk about the check-in process: there is no need to go to the reception, sit in the waiting area - you will be met at the arrival pier by a personal butler who has already prepared a room in advance for the arrival of guests.
Also, this butler is assigned to the guest throughout the rest:
Thank you to all the hotel staff for a completely carefree and magical vacation! Separately, I would like to thank the administrator of the beach grill restaurant - KD, our Butler Kumar and the sommelier team - the guys are 100% devoted to their work! a successful business is built on such employees as they are!
Hi All! My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon at Emerald Maldives and can't even explain to you the AMAZING time we had with them! To start with- from the moment you get there you feel like you are in PARADISE... It was HEAVEN. It is luxurious, beautiful, VERY CLEAN, and the room was spotless and service was the best we have ever had. I want to say I truly think a part of the reason this trip was so BEYOND WORDS was because we had such A+++++ 4 STARS AND ABOVE excellent service. From the staff who greeted us upon arrival, the kind staff who drove us around in the buggy all week and our butler- Malik. Malik was so welcoming from the second we met him. He treated us like family, showed us around and was there for us whenever we needed him. He was always responsive, communicative and immediately there for us. He arranged our schedule/ travel and went ABOVE AND BEYOND. We truly owe him a HUGE THANK YOU for the wonderful time. He was always there for us and helped guide us and navigate our trip. From the second we got there he helped arrange our schedule/ set up activities and made sure we were OK. What a wonderful asset he is to Emerald. He really made a trip that could be potentially stressful very simple and careful and FUN. I also wanted to say- the facilities are gorgeous and well taken care of. Very clean and everyone who works there is so helpful and kind. If I had to choose a perfect honeymoon or vacation this is where I would go. The best of everything here. Best Place. Place Staff. Best Facilities. Not to mention- traveling during COVID couldn't have been easier and more seamless. PCR tests and all. Best Food and the Best Help. I don't have one negative thing to say except that I wish I LIVED THERE. This trip I will always remember and I just wanted to personally -Thank you Malik and to the staff at Emerald Maldives. You made our MALDIVES VACATION DREAM COME TRUE. So much love and gratitude to you all.
With Thanks and Much Appreciation,
Elisa and Gaetano Ilardo
