About Maafushivaru, Maafushivaru

Free breakfast is available daily. Then, you might eat sushi over the water at 135 Degrees East, a Japanese restaurant, or enjoy the international buffet at the Cuisine Gallery. The beachside infinity pool has a bar for sundowner cocktails, and you can work up an appetite at the fitness center. For some nighttime reading, book lovers can pick something up at the library.

The resort's 48 spacious villas have flat-screen TVs and iPod® docks, along with minibars and espresso machines so you can enjoy a drink on your private terrace or deck. You can pick from beachside, poolside, and over-water villas, all with rainfall showers.

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.
