We stumbled upon The Residence slightly by accident when we were planning our Maldives vacation but it was truly an incredible find! the resort is the only thing on the island so the place is well and truly yours!!! Staff is incredibly helpful especially Saameh our butler and Sajee the general manager who really helped us out when our travel plans were altered. we had a pool villa and it was amazing to wake up in the morning and jump into the pool or just walk into the crystal clear waters of the sea! it was great place to stay whether you are travelling with family or friends!! Also try out the complimentary yoga twice a day (6am and 6pm) for that extra relaxation.

the spa is managed by Clarins and has enticing massages on offer. the body massage doesnt leave an inch unmassaged while there are other offers to target specific areas like neck and shoulders, feet etc.

helpful tip: Please note that the resort is about an hour's domestic flight away and things can change so you dont want to book a too early a flight. you might have to leave the hotel in the dead of night!

Each villa comes with a bicycle so if you ride you can zip all over the resort with no problems and if you dont (like me) everything is an easy walk away or else call a buggy and it will come to collect you in a couple of minutes!

Room Tip: upgrade to the pool villa it is well worth it!!!

The Residence Maldives is just the top quality residence you would like to find for your holidays. Everythig was just perfect. I would make a very little remark on the dining room buffet, it was just a little bit under the top for this quality hotel.

My honeymoon trip to Maldives was made memorable by the staff and facilities at The Residence with their very professional and welcoming nature. Their hospitality was really very good. Being a vegetarian they arranged for desired food for us which was really appreciable.

First things first. This isn’t an easy place to get to. Is it worth the hassle? YES YES YES!

Traveling from London, connecting in Dubai and finally a 1 hour domestic flight to the southerly Atolls was a slog I must say. Residence were amazing at booking the domestic flights and we were greeted at Malè but friendly hotel staff who took us to a lounge to wait for our domestic flight. We then had a short speed boat ride to the hotel itself. All told LGW - Hotel room took 21 hours.

As soon as we arrived I knew we were somewhere special. On the buggy from the boat to the check in we saw a huge moray eel swimming in the shallow crystal clear water, flanked by two baby black tip reef sharks. Magical.

Check in was quick but I was just astounded at the beauty of what laid before me looking out over a shallow reef to a breakwater. Turquoise water and crystal white sand.

Room was amazing we had an overwater villa with pool. Proper sized infinity pool not a plunge pool. Stunning. Views out to the house reef where we regularly saw dolphins playing in the mornings.

FRANCIS! What a guy. Our personal butler for our stay, was a great character and could not do more to help. I really hope I get to see him again some day, a good man.

Food in room service and the a la Carte was lovely.

Ladder from the terrace straight into the water and straight away the fun began. Amazing assortment of sea creatures and fish right under your room! When you got out to the main reef the fish are huge and there are turtles, rays, sharks. The views down at the drop off were something I will never forget, thousands of fish and some fairly large reef sharks, one of which took a liking to my wife and followed her for a moment. She was not impressed!

There were WiFi issues when we visited but staff were very helpful and gave me a local SIM card with data so I could get my emails.

Absolutely stunning 5 star facility and I am already working on returning next January with the kids!

Well we are writing this review with mixed feelings because we would really like to keep this wonderful place to ourselves but because this may have been one of the most amazing places we have visited we felt it only fair to praise the fantastic staff for making our stay one that will stay in our minds forever. From the time we arrived in Male The Residence staff were there waiting for our arrival making the transfer by plane and speed boat very smooth. On arrival to paradise we were greeted at the jetty by smiling friendly faces. This continued throughout our stay with all staff being very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We cannot single out any members of staff as everyone we encountered maintained the same high standards.The resort it’s self is truly paradise with white sandy beaches,crystal clear sea and stunning views over the coral reef. We snorkelled daily and saw an abundance of colourful fish. The island is idyllic the grounds maintained throughout the day. The restaurants and food are world class with a variety for any ones taste. The water villa we stayed in was unbelievable with views over the reef to die for, the sunsets of an evening breathtaking. We really cannot praise this resort enough or thank the staff for making our stay so special. We went all inclusive which on reflection seemed a good choice as this included high quality varied choice of food and good variety of branded drinks. Just so sad it ended.
