We went there in first week of March 2021 and spent 5 nights and six days
three of us with our 8 year old daughter.

We have been to Maldives before and this time we selected Emerald after a lot of research amongst the luxury resorts of similar kind and we are glad that it was worth it.

we stayed in water villas with pool as well as beach villas with pool .

An excellent resort with great service. The all inclusive package seriously enhances the experience.

Srikanth and his staff are great. Our special thanks to mr Rao from front office who made special efforts to make the holiday even more special for us. Really nice and welcoming staff everywhere.

the property is great and quite new. the size of both the ocean villas as well beach villas is good. The restaurants are very nice.

The sea life under the water villas is bit depleted ... don't expect to see fishes as you go down into water from your pool villas. but there are areas on the resort where u can snorkel and see some corals and fishes.

Our daughter Amayra had a great time and wanted to write her own review.
Review as written by her

" I had an amazing time. The Infinity pool was very good and the ocean slightly away from the water villas was awesome for snorkeling. .

Food was great, especially in Aqua.

But the underwater view near the water villas was not so good.

I want to go there again. "

Where do I begin? I could write hours and hours about this beautiful resort and the wonderful staff that we met during our stay at Emerald. Let me start with Igga our house butler who took care of everything during our stay. He was just one message away and did everything to make sure we have everything we needed.

The villas are so beautiful, clean and spacious. We were blown away! We stayed at a beach villa and a water villa with pool, they were both breathtaking.

Each of the restaurants have their own special wonderful atmosphere. We loved the restaurant at the beach. But the food was great in all of the restaurants.

We loved riding our beach bikes around the island. Even our daughter (7) had her own kids beach cruiser. She loved going to the kids club.

All in all we have nothing negative to say about Emerald. It's our new favorite place and we hope to be back very soon!!

Special thanks goes to Mushla, Rishmee and Shakira from Dolphins Club. My daughter misses your fun activities :-)

Asir, Bishara, Rifaz, Reyes, Shahid, Aux, Borhan, Jully, Rappe, Satho from the restaurants
Peter from the fruit buffet
Sibin, Allwyn from the buffet restaurant
Lee and Erica, the someliers and of course Igga.

Thank you all so much!! You made our holiday even more special.

I chose Emerald Resort because of the amazing reviews and it didn't disappoint! Now there are two categories of travellers who come to this resort (1) money no object and (2) an extravagant treat that you perhaps couldn't afford every year, I am the latter! I travelled solo for the first time and it was definitely a type of resort you could do so without feeling uncomfortable.

Now the seaplane experience....I would allow yourself an extra couple days for travel because there can be delays because of bad weather and schedules. I arrived at Male airport at 8am and arrived at the resort at 3.30 pm, but bear in mind the resort is one hour ahead of Male. This is completely out of the hotel's control. I was a little frustrated at a 4 hour wait after overnight travel but it's all worth it in the end!

The staff are all trained to an exceptionally high standard and went above and beyond.

I stayed in a water villa and intended on swapping for a beach villa half way through the trip. However the staff kindly allowed me to stay in the water villa for the trip duration (6 nights) which was wonderful.

I was allocated my own butler (Kumar) who was available upon request by wattsapp, he had already booked me into the resorts various restaurants throughout the trip so I didn't miss out which was great. He was extremely informative and responsive within minutes.

The water villa with pool was just amazing and luxurious. I found the sea to be a little too choppy for me so didn't venture into the sea very much, the plunge pool was just perfect for me. Don't expect to look down and see lots of seaside in the crystal clear sea from the villa, you have to swim out a little for this.

The food was made to a very high standard and was served by the staff. I do like a buffet to help myself occasionally but this perhaps was because of the pandemic.

Once in the resort, having taken a covid test on arrival, no more masks which is wonderful!

The staff are all friendly and will have a chat with you. I was treated like royalty the whole time. There is a buggy service and the drivers are extremely caring and often stopped to see if I wanted to hop on when I lost my way a couple times! The wind is very deceiving and I burnt on day one pretty badly. The buggy driver took me to buy remedies from the local shop and waited for me which was lovely. Sorry I didn't get his name but all the drivers were wonderful.

If you are on the all inclusive package which in was please prepare yourself for little extras which are not cheap. The excursions, nessessities from the shop, experiences. The Emerald have an app which is very useful and you can take a look at menus and prices on there.

I booked directly on the website and I was given a 250 USD voucher for the spa and also a complimentary dolphin spotting trip. Unfortunately we didn't spot dolphins but maybe next time! I used my spa voucher and had a facial which was wonderful thank you!

I attended a cocktail hour and was made to feel very welcome by the General Manager Mr Devarapalli who I had a very pleasant conversation with.

The whole experience for me was just wonderful and what I needed after the crazy pandemic. Upon departure the staff lined up and waved you off from the seaplane. The staff couldn't see but I waved until you were out of sight with a couple of tears of gratitude.

I hope to return within the next 12 months with my Partner to experience the wonderful Island with me. Thank you very much 😊

My husband, my 3 month old and I just returned from 5 nights at Emerald and I’m already planning my next trip back.

The resort is stunning for so many reasons!

1. Accommodation- we had an over water villa with pool and it was gorgeous. So spacious and great huge bathroom and bathtub. We had villa 308 so it wasn’t too far in from the beach and quick walk to most places. Next time I think we will go for beach villa (as the little one will be able to run around by then so it’s safer!) and they are absolutely beach front and beautiful also.

2. Service. I cannot say enough amazing things about the staff there- they were so attentive and amazing. From our butler Kumar to the Sommeliers Nash and Lee, every single staff member we encountered went out of their way to make our stay so special.

3. All inclusive dine around- this meant we never got bored. The food at all the restaurants is such high quality, I was so pleasantly surprised. They have sommeliers at every restaurant for lunch and dinner and all the wines they recommended to us were great. I even took pictures of the bottles so I can try to find it in Dubai!

4. The experience end to end. We were picked up right after coming through the arrival gate and taken in air con mini van to the Emerald lounge for the short wait for sea plane. It was so comfortable and after reaching the resort we were taken on a quick tour of the island and then straight to our villa. Check in was done via their app - so easy and hassle free. They even had chilled champagne waiting for us in the villa. Our butler Kumar made all reservations for us to ensure we got to try all the restaurants and kept us informed of all changes etc. (there was a few as we had really stormy weather for 3 of the 5 days we were there.)

I literally can’t say enough about how wonderful this resort and the people there are. Hands down the best holiday I’ve ever been on and that’s saying something especially as we traveled overseas first time after having our baby!

Thanks Emerald for an unforgettable stay!

The resort is big enough and a lot of activities to do !!

Nice and friendly stuff and really nice food in all restaurants (especially - asian rest & aqua)
I want to thank Pawan Singh, for amazing food that he prepared for me ! And strongly recommend you to find him and ask to make you beaked beans for the breakfast! It is delicious!!

In general, i had 11 days of paradise and did really enjoy the Maldives !

Strongly recommend you to take water villa with pool rather than sunset view! (For couples) and beach villas for families with kids!

Best of luck!
