Best vacation I have ever been on. By the end of our stay the staff felt more like family. I was left in tears when it was time to leave. The most beautiful place I have ever visited. The house reef is amazing with plenty of wild life- sharks, turtles, manta rays, sting rays, thousand of tropical fish. Hands down best vacation ever. Thank you to everyone at Ellaidhoo ❤️❤️❤️

We chose Ellaidhoo Maldives for several reasons, including proximity to Male, amenities, value for the money, and because the “house reef” is one of the best in the Maldives. The resort didn’t disappoint. The diving is amazing and facilities are terrific, but we were also most impressed by the staff. Andrea made sure our transportation was all set and also helped us throughout the week. Nirmala led a most wonderful sunrise yoga class that was truly special. Kamul made sure our waterfront bungalow was kept beautiful but also helped us with our laundry and other needs. I could go on and on but we are truly happy we came here and highly recommend this resort. I’ll add that Haran made us a terrific custom salad daily for lunch and Darshika helped with special food made for my wife and Vigula helped with special gluten free food.
