“We stayed in Arthuruga for our Honeymoon break and had...”

Written on: 10/07/2009 by nomim (1 review written)

We stayed in Arthuruga for our Honeymoon break and had a fantastic time. It is picture perfect paradise and we have never seen or experienced anything like it. The accomodation is spacious with a fee drinks fridge which gets stocked up every day. The room was cleaned twice a day with fresh linen at least once a day. The bathroom was half outside half inside but had everything you need and was very big.
The snorkelling is excellent. We saw turtles and other huge fish we really didn't expect to… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/07/2008 by ollie666 (1 review written)

At many maldivian resorts, the staff will be falling over you and helping you all of the time, if that is your thing, then go to another island. On Athuruga the balance is perfect. All Maldivian waiters and room boys are excellent, the bar staff are also brilliant. The island is not over populated or crowded with only 100 guests. If you love your water sports and activities then the animation staff on the island are brilliant. They help so much, they will take you out sailing or snorkelling… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/01/2007 by johnfranca (3 reviews written)

We've visited a number of islands in the past but at last we've found the one we'll stick to. To an Anglo/Italian couple the prospect of a good Italian restaurant on a Maldivian island sounded like paradise and it was.

Bungalows, single or semi, are large, well air conditioned and equipped with a fridge and a safe. Outside shower and loo is shared with (non-biting) ants from time to time. Nothing extravagant but all very comfortable and we slept well. Good line in freebie sun creams supplied… Read Full Review

“Having chosen a honeymoon to Sri Lanka and then...”

Written on: 21/11/2006 by Miler (1 review written)

Having chosen a honeymoon to Sri Lanka and then Athuruga I can honestly say that a week on this island was a perfect end to a great holiday.

The island is small, which limits guest numbers to about a maximum of 90, there were no children and few English.

The food was top rate and the service was good (certainly not as good as in Sri Lanka though). The rooms were spacious and clean but I would recommend ensuring you get a detached bungalow to ensure total privacy.

Plenty to do, as the staff… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/04/2006 by Jonathan Hardwick (1 review written)

Athuruga in the Maldives is excellent for an informal, relaxing holiday. There are no airs and graces, and the staff have a positive can do approach to their guests. Relatively few English, but lots of vibrant Italians and Germans who are willing to try out their English language skills. A few babies and toddlers, but no teenagers. It is so good, we have been back six times… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/01/2006 by abisj (1 review written)

Athuruga is a very peaceful island, excellent for a romantic getaway. Truly idyllic beach with warm, sparklingly clear water. Only 46 rooms on the whole island (you can walk right round it in 15 minutes) so it's very peaceful. Food a great mix, lots of freshly-caught fish but my fish-phobic partner also found plenty to eat. Nearly everything inclusive - cocktails, spirits, choice of wines - only very top brands were extra. Large, well-equipped rooms with outdoor bathrooms - all felt very… Read Full Review

“Visited Athuruga during the Iraq invasion so there...”

Written on: 15/08/2005 by johnlangley (1 review written)

Visited Athuruga during the Iraq invasion so there was only 37 guests to over a hundred staff. The beach is fanastic, with the island in the centre of the Atol the sea was always calm and snokelling great. The resort is the ideal size and shape, unlike many other islands. The food was really good, especially the pizza. Rooms are situated on directly on the beach. The resort is 4 star by Maldivian standards and so the rooms can be a little basic. The entertinment was a little cheesy but great… Read Full Review

“I Cannot understand Miles revue. We went to Athuruga...”

Written on: 14/06/2004 by Linda Davies (1 review written)

I Cannot understand Miles revue. We went to Athuruga in March 2004 - our sixth trip to the Maldives, the earlier trips being Thudufushi, sister island to Athuruga, Fesdue plus cruise, Kuredu plus cruise, Ari Beach and Reethi Beach. Certainly 'all-inclusive' seems to diminish as years go by. Reethi Beach was only all-inclusive at the main bar and Athuruga was only all-inclusive at main bar at lunch times and evenings. Despite what brochures say at Athuruga they only supplied wine, beer and… Read Full Review

Hi my fiance and I are thinking about booking our honeymoon to the Maldives but are struggling to choose the best island to go to. Which would you recommend as your favourite that is not touristy and you can feel like you're on a deserted island?

All four of us enjoyed our time on Athuruga immensely. We met several other groups on repeat visits. The staff were delightful, the food was an excellent mix of international, Italian and Asian. We have no criticisms and will go back… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/02/2004 by mileswalters (2 reviews written)

The only thing maldivian about Athuruga island is the location. 99% italian occupancy. Poor service all round don't even believe the brochure descriptions. If you are English give this and any other planhotel resort a wide berth. Totally rubbish and a rip off. rated 4 star plus in reality we have had far superior service and food at 3 star in the maldives… Read Full Review
