Vakarufalhi Maldives

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Tucked away in the South Ari Atoll, it's a 25-minute seaplane journey and 10-minute boat ride from Malé
  • While it is a smaller island, its location "is among the best for whale shark and Manta ray excursions or dives, and the house reef is worth a snorkel," says Oyster
  • Strong online reviews


The 4-star Vakarufalhi Maldives in the South Ari Atoll is small and intimate when compared to many other resorts in the Maldives, and boasts beautiful white-sand beaches, a turquoise lagoon and house reef that's home to schools of snappers, soldier fish and batfish.

Beach Villas are set within tropical gardens, facing the lagoon, and have direct access to the beach. All villas come with air conditioning, a ceiling fan, a sofa, a flat-screen TV, minibar and and a semi-open-air bathroom.

The hotel has an on-site dive centre that has PADI courses with shipwreck and night dives (supplements apply). The majority of dive sites are around 20 minutes' boat ride from the resort.

Other facilities includes an over-water spa, a large restaurant with retractable windows and beach views, a bar and lounge, and a gym.

Guests will be met on arrival to Malé airport by a representative of Trans Maldivian Airways and taken to the sea plane terminal. The resort will inform you of the pickup time for your return transfer the day before you leave. Please contact +96 07784587 in case of emergency.
