What the reviews say

The Kuda-Funafaru Maldives Resort has amassed a string of almost universally glowing reviews in the short time it’s been open. Guests are especially impressed by the size of the water villas, which are indeed among the largest in the Maldives, as well as the great distance between each one. The configuration of the resort and its premium on solitude and privacy make it one of the best honeymoon options for those who can afford it.

The food also receives glowing reviews, which is not typical of private-island resorts of this size. Even the 50-minute seaplane ride and the reception on both ends gets high marks, so it seems the Kuda-Funafaru Maldives pays extraordinary attention to detail.

Getting there

To reach the Kuda-Funafaru Maldives you’ll need to fly to the main Malé International Airport in the Maldives. From there you’ll board a seaplane for the 50-minute flight to the small island where the resort lies.
