Spectacular location, wonderful staff
Maafushivaru exceeded our expectations in terms of location & grounds. It is relatively quiet & private--not a rowdy party resort. The waters, reefs, adjacent island, excursions, staff and ambiance were a dream. We will never forget the amazing snorkeling or gorgeous sunrises viewed from our overwater bungalow. The areas for improvement are: 1)Dining entrees became a bit repetitive. We could tell when last nights fish/beef/lamb was redone for lunch next day, which is fine in itself--why waste?--but it needed better cooking as a leftover. The pastries were always lovely & had good variety. And the grill station was nice. 2) our bungalow did have some issues and wouldn't flush on first night. It was quickly remedied. But toilet also leaky, slow to fill on subsequent night. Cracks in wall paint & drywall around plumbing fixtures. Again, remedied quickly and not huge issues except that for the amount of money paid for the room, we expected such easy-to-fix things would not be present. We would absolutely stay at Maafuahivaru again, you will be very happy there, and will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful, peaceful resort in the Maldives. Yes, the overwater bungalows are more expensive but it is worth the experience. The staff was consistently attentive, warm & prompt. Thank you all!

Whale shark
It was a long journey due to the transfer of sea plane, the waiting at the lounge etc. Plus the fact that the sea plane needs to fill to its maximum capacity, so we had to wait around for other passengers. about 3 hours wait at the lounge which is a waste of time, considering our trip is short, only 3 nights. Also, the sea plane has to alight other guests in another resort, thus, more waiting. By the time we reach the resort, we were tired and many precious hours lost.. Nice resort marred by some oversight as management doesn't pay attention to details. - Staff at restaurants are not so friendly, you have to greet them before they greet you. - It is a pity to see such a beautiful swimming pool over looking the stunning Maldivian sea with a few of the lounge chairs' cushion very visibly torn. You can even see the styrofoam coming off. - The staffs kept all the cushions under plastic wraps even after the rain, and we have to ask for cushions for our deck chair. - Room was not properly cleaned. However, the whole trip was saved by the most endearing whale shark named Stephan, we saw during the snorkeling excursion, the only reason why we travelled all the way to South Ari Atoll. nothing else really matters. Thanks to Amanda, the Marine Biologist and her team, who have made an exception for us to go for whale shark excursion, even though there was no schedule of whale shark excursion during those 3 days while we were there.

Honeymoon
We stayed 5 nights at Water Villa for our honeymoon. Maafushivaru is a small resort, walking around the island takes 20-25 mins. Hits: 1. It was a beautiful and clean resort with amazing house reefs and clear turquoise water. 2. There was a complimentary trip to its sister island - Lonubu which is very peaceful and secluded. 3. The connecting seaplane was prepared seamlessly for us. Maafushivaru helped with the booking and informed us the timing for our return seaplane. Misses: 1. We did not see any turtles, reef sharks or stingrays. After checking with one of the staff, she directed us to an area with strong current. As we are not proficient in swimming, we skipped the chance. Our friends who stayed in other resorts in Maldives were able to catch a glimpse of these animals at shoreline without snorkelling. 2. The daily buffets were usually similar without much surprises, likely to get bored if you stay more than 3 days. 3. The night activities had low participation rate, eg. only 1 couple at the movie night. 4. Every Water Villa is directly connected to the sea through a suntanning deck from its bathroom but both the door and window of the bathroom can't be locked. We felt insecured as anyone could enter the room although chances might be low. If you are looking for a secluded & quiet resort, or excursions to Manta Point or see whale sharks, this might be the right place for you.
