    Another one of the bucket list definitely a Plus!!!
    Pros: Staff was helpful and attentive to all requests and needs the visuals were amazing. clear ocean bottom views, all types of sea life swimming around your feet. The Manager on site her name was Zully fixed our booking issues and gave us the room that we had hoped to enjoy for the celebration that we found ourselves on this beautiful island to celebrate.
    Cons: I felt, I was misled in the type of accommodations that I was to receive upon checking in. Also it was a little difficult getting reservations to enjoy the Restaurant's, however we were able to get three of the four with some assistance from the staff.

    Paradise on a budget
    Pros: Stunning space, wonderful people and a great escape.
    Cons: It’s really a 4.5*. For all inclusive it’s good, but missed a level of excellence that you would hope for. For example, coffee in the room is sachets with creamer, for the cost you’d expect good coffee!

    would come back anytime!
    Pros: I was honestly positively surprised about the whole stay and experience. First of all, basically EVERYTHING you would need during your holiday is included in the price (apart from transfer). All inclusive, even room service and floating breakfast are included! The beaches around are super nice and the water crystal clear. The rooms are huge, very clean and the bed and pillows (I am VERY picky with pillows and very rarely find them comfy in hotels) are the most comfortable I probably ever had in a hotel. Room service had a quite small choice, but the food was good and service very fast. The overwater villas with pool are absolutely gorgeous and the price also quite affordable in comparison with other resorts.
    Cons: There are also a few things that I did no like so much, however the positive general impression was not too much influenced by it: 1. house reef is quite small and does not have so many fish there like in other resorts I have been to. 2. Reception staff could work on request more efficiently. I have had to call several times for different requests and no follow up basically happened. 3. App didnt work for me, could not log in and had to reserve tables for a la carte restaurants with the reception, however for 1 restaurant the reservation was somehow not forwarded to the restaurant, so I could not have dinner there.

    ВОСТОРГ! Первый раз в жизни скажу: "Хочу вернуться!"
    Pros: Кухня выше всех похвал. Природа островов - просто дух захватывает. Стабильный WIFI (AnyDesk вполне приемлемо работал). Отличные постельное бельё, пляжные полотенца. В номерах халаты, тапочки, зонтик, спасжилеты, сейф, косметические средства, фены и т.д. Есть небольшой магазин с сувенирами и товарами первой необходимости (сигареты - по 12$ за пачку(!)). Медицинский кабинет, где можно сделать за 130$ ПЦР-тест (готовность - на следующий день). Спиртное в номерах отсутствовало, за исключением пива "Килиманджаро" (местное, хорошее), которым заполняется холодильник, насколько я понял, в неограниченном количестве. Рестораны (не все) работают 07:30-22:00, есть вечерние развлекательные программы. Круглосуточный спортбар с алкоголем. Отличный отель!

    Great peaceful and beautiful scenery as Maldives promises. Best safe but costly vacay during Covid.
    Pros: Beach side and reef snorkel side on both Atoll & Palace sides. Provided flexibility depending on day’s objectives. The separate water sports centre had different quality customer service as it is a separate company. Masks worn by all employees all the time. The shuttle service for Palace guests when needed. Room service especially the floating breakfast in the pool was awesome! The quickest room service in over 57 countries I have been. Amazing snorkelling and water villas were excellent for privacy and peace. Spa Winda is the best aesthetician at the spa and the spa value is great with packages for beach massages. Water board yoga was superb!!!
    Cons: Reception could be more warmer and friendly as the rest of the staff in all the dining and bar areas. The Japanese restaurant should have had more sushi selection. Smell of the sewage system on the island Atoll side at times when they were processing the waste but reality is they need to do that for cleaning the water. Guests who were careless and feeding wildlife human food which makes natural habitat aggressive. (They can survive without you feeding them!). Not enough garbage cans so some guests had audacity to leave trash where it could get into the waters.

    We had booked the Riu Atol side of this resort not knowing the difference between the Atol and the Palace, which are both the same hotel connected by a long board walk over the beautiful crystal clear waters. On arrival we quickly realised that the Atol was not for us and upon enquiry to reception they could move us to the Palace side the next day. By 10am on our second day we were happily settled into our room on the Palace side and noticed a distinct difference. Lack of children, quieter, service was top notch, clientele dressed more....elegantly I guess. Room service is available over here, bar is stocked with 4 spirits, mixers and beer, and ice machines every 30m or so along the pathways. The Atol side has no room service and only beer in the minibar, and no other drinks will be supplied, even if you want to pay for them (we booked all inclusive). We like sitting on our balcony having a GnT in the evening and the Palace side makes that possible. We booked a direct beach front access room as we had no intention of staying in an over water bungalow, it's just too confined for us, we like to wander around. The rooms are big, well appointed, fabulous air-conditioning and beach towels replaced as and when required. I'd highly recommend bringing your own mask and snorkel because the shallow waters go for miles and remain 1-3 foot deep with fish and hard coral a plenty. I easily spent 2 hours at a time just floating around watching the fish and crustaceans. The buffet has a good mix of food and there are 2 other restaurants you can book into on this side of the resort for 630 or 830 seating. The Japanese restaurant was especially delicious. There is also another steak restaurant over on the Atol side. The service at the pool bar is outstanding and super friendly with great music every night. It took us a couple of days to settle into the routine on the island but now we don't want to leave (tomorrow 😔). I can highly recommend the jet ski rides and we caught the seaplane from Male to the hotel which was a great way to see the beautiful islands in all their glory. We only got to spend 5 nights here (😪) as we had 2 weeks self driving around sri lanka in a 1980s jeep (that's another post) and a week in Malaysia so it's been a big trip. The Riu Palace was our wind down at the end of our long trip and fully fulfilled our expectations of this bucket list location. Thank you to the team here, we have had a wonderful stay. X we will be back some day.

    I don’t even know where to start from. Me and my husband visited this resort for our honeymoon. We’ve stayed for 10 days and struggled to leave! I’m not one to usually leave reviews but after the exceptional experience it was a MUST. We stayed in the over water villa with the swimming pool. The minibar was topped up daily and room cleaned to a very high standard. I would like to personally thank the cleaner for this. I am allergic to chlorine and the hotel manager kindly excepted my request of not adding chlorine into our pool. Therefore a massive thank you. The food was beyond our expectation. Very delicious and a huge variety of options. The bar by the pool had a choice of drinks which were all very well made. A special thank you to Aminda and Chamod for their hospitality. These boys have gone above and beyond. Sande was also very kind, welcoming and professional. Always worked with a massive smile on his face. Shathir also made sure that we left the restaurant happy. I could not have been any happier, I am very happy my husband booked this resort. Certainly recommended for all types of vacation whether it’s honeymoon or family getaway.

    The palace side has nothing to do apart from resturants, the rest of the facilities are on the maldivas side which makes it fairly pointless booking the more expensive side. On top of that its a good 20 min walk across the bridge to get to the other side in the blazing heat with no shelter. Buggy service is poor as mentioned by other reviewers so be prepared to walk. Was also aggressively confronted by a member of staff after complaining about the buggy service. The buggy driver obviously had worked out it was me that complained and upon us trying to get on the buggy, he stopped berated us continually about it in front of other guests. Awful experience, would not recommend

    Un super séjour à l’Hôtel RIU Palace. Nous avons célébré notre lune de miel du 15 au 28 décembre. Nous avons bien pu profiter des lieux et du personnel pour nous faire un avis. Cet hôtel est plutôt une destination pour se retrouver entre amis ou en famille avec enfant que pour une lune de miel. Nous remercions le personnel qui s’occupe du buffet et des restaurants qui ont toujours été d’une gentillesse et fait preuve d’une bienveillance.

    This place is Heaven on Earth. We stayed for 6 nights in an Overwater Suite w/a pool and it was nothing short of spectacular. Incredible views - Incredible furnishings - great entertainment and food! I'd like to mention Lucy at check-in, Kelvin and Arutu at the sports bar, and Aminda and his team by the bar!! The Maldives has lots of options - and if you are like me and deciding if you should stay here or not...stay. Absolutely stay. You will NOT be disappointed. And you will NOT be the same person after.

    We have just returned from a 15 night stay (11th December to 26th Dec 2022) at this marvellous hotel and had an absolutely fantastic time. We have stayed in several RIUs within the Caribbean (our last stay was in the RIU palace Negril, Jamaica) over the years so are familiar with the RIU brand. This was our first time in the Maldives and we booked the holiday through Emirates Holidays and it took over 30 hours get here (flight to Dubai, flight from Dubai to Male, then another 30 min flight from Male to another island, then a small bus journey to the harbour and then onto a boat that took about 15 mins), but once we got here it was well worth it. We selected the Palace on the proviso of the 2 additional restaurants (staying on the Palace island entailed access to 4 restaurants Japanese, Krystal, Steak house and Italian) and that it seemed to offer more tranquillity then the Atoll side (those on the Atoll side could not access the Palace side). When we arrived in reception we were greeted with a refreshing towel, drink and an introduction to the resort. We were then escorted via buggy to our room (we stopped in one of junior suites with balcony) which we found was very commodious, had plenty of storage, mirrors and plug sockets (sockets are the same as England so there was no need to bring any adapters). The shower pressure was excellent and never lost the temperature (we had heard other guests mention that their shower temperature was constantly turning cold) and the air-con was spot on. As per the previous Caribbean RIUs we have stopped in an iron, ironing board, safe, kettle, umbrella and optics (rum, whiskey, vodka and gin) were provided as standard. The fridge was restocked daily with 3 large waters, 2 tonic waters, 2 diet cokes, 2 full fat cokes, 2 sprite and 4 Estrella Galicia beers. We weren’t in the room long enough to watch the TV but there were a few English speaking channels (Sky news and comedy channel) available. Our room attendant – Ken kept the room spotless. We just want to say another thanks to him for surprisingly arranging a bottle of Cava and providing the entertaining towel art for my wife’s 40th birthday (which she celebrated during our stay). We had decorated the room ourselves with balloons and bunting etc. on the day we arrived and then the following day after returning from the beach the fizz etc. had been supplied so that was a real nice touch – thanks again Ken. During our stay we made friends with another couple who were staying in one of the water villas. They invited us in to view their room and found it very small compared to our suite, they also had two beds pushed together to make it the same size as our king-size bed. The outside decking area looked appealing however there was only a wooden panel that separated their area from the next door guest (so you could hear their music/talking which didn’t seem very private) and the access to the sea wasn’t utilised as there was stingrays and small sharks prevalent which they didn’t want to encounter. Furthermore the sun only hit their decking area for a short while so they ended up using the beach as per those guests who weren’t in the water villas. We are beach lovers so our days were spent just catching the rays and chasing the sun on the beautiful white beach. The wi-fi is excellent so were able to listen to our favourite radio stations on our phones down there. The beach and sea are both perfect and remind us of the beaches and sea in the Bahamas. It’s nice to know there isn’t any beach hawkers so you can just chill without getting disturbed. There was no issue getting a sunbed on the beach (pool area seemed to fill up quick but that area was heavily in the shade) and the beach towels are provided on the table just to the side of the bar (no towel card needed) and are replenished thoroughly throughout the day. There is a hammock that is built into the shoreline with the ‘I love RIU Palace Maldives’ sign on it that makes a good Kodak moment (there are two swings with ‘RIU Maldives' sign built into the shoreline on the Atoll side as well as a palm leaf heart). We are very itinerant travellers who have been all over the world and have never once fancied doing any snorkelling, so we thought we would give it bash during our stay. We purchased a few cheap snorkelling sets before we came away and my goodness we were pleased we did. The aquatic life we experienced was amazing. One of the other guests we got talking to recommended the snorkelling on the Atoll side; they said Villa 22 is the best area. So one morning we got up about 6am to do it, we didn’t see anything different to that on the Palace side apart from the massive deep drop in the shoreline. We were pleased the 24 hour sports bar was on the Atoll side as it gave us the incentive to get up and jog over to start our daily session (its 5 o clock somewhere). It took us about 5 mins to jog the bridge distance between the two islands (on a night time it took us about 13 mins for a casual stroll). We saw several stingrays and little sharks during our jogs between the two islands. On our first morning we stuck our heads into the gym and found it quick small with the equipment tightly close together. We stuck to running a few lengths of the bridge. The sports bar has a decent coffee machine too; the drinks brands differ slightly from the Palace side (Bombay Sapphire is provided on the Palace side). The Beer is the same on both sides which is Carlsberg. There are two decent pool tables in the bar with a book shelf that has plenty of books and board games. On a night the fridges are stocked up with burgers and hotdogs and there is a microwave provided to heat them up. We downloaded the RIU app before arrival and you will need this to make the restaurant reservations, you will also need a QR scanner app to download the menus for the restaurants. If you have any bother with restaurant reservations you just need to pop into reception and speak to one of the concierge team who will be happy to assist. It was a nice touch for the reception team to book us a table in Krystal for my wife’s 40th (which was on our 2nd day of our stay), we had dropped them an email a few weeks or so before we left just to see if they could arrange the restaurant reservation prior to arrival, they said they would look into it for us. They also arranged a cake for her in Krystal and sang happy birthday which was also a nice surprise – thanks again. We only visited the Japanese restaurant once and the rest of the time we visited the steak, Krystal and Italians multiple times. The food at all the restaurants was absolutely suburb. We dined three times in the buffet during our stay and on each occasion there was a different theme with something for everyone’s palate. The breakfast buffet was also spot on and we liked the fact that you could help yourself to the fizz and make yourself several mimosas. The sun started to set about 5ish so we would move to the bar for a few sunset drinks whilst listening to DJ Lakvinda’s chill out tracks. Bar snacks are available between 11 and 12 and 15.30 to 17.30, again you will need the QR scanner to download the menu where things like chicken nuggets, fish bites, chips and sandwiches can be ordered. Bingo is played at 15.30 every day at the bar and is a good laugh. We won the bingo twice and have 2 nice RIU caps as keepsakes. For the nights we dined on the Atoll side we would visit the sports bar and the disco/concert room. There was always a good turn on and the band were excellent. We also spent Christmas here and experienced all the hard work and preparation that the staff/team put in to making the day perfect. The team members spent a few months before hand (on their days off) making all the Christmas Eve decorations by hand and they were all fantastic, even the little decorations placed on the Christmas eve gala tables were all hand made. The Christmas Eve Gala was wonderful. The team worked extra long shifts that day to get everything set up. There were 2 dinner sittings for the gala which were held in the Buffet area. The tables were wonderfully dressed and the food on offer was delicious (turkey and all the trimmings). The main bar/pool bar on the Palace side is ran extremely efficiently where you never ever have to wait for a drink. Even whilst sunbathing the team members would come over so we didn’t have to move and could put our drinks orders in. There are more branded drinks on the Palace side too. All the team/staff members we encountered (on both islands) work so hard, they are based here 11 months of the year and we can’t believe they work away from their loved ones and families for this length of time. Despite this they are always smiling and provide a top notch service. Both islands are excellently maintained from the grounds to the toilets. The disinfectant they use smells fab. On our last day we were sent the travel times for our returning journey to Male. We had an absolutely fabulous holiday at the RIU Palace Maldives which was made even more perfect by all the team members whose hard work is massively appreciated, you will forever be in our hearts. We therefore gives thanks to them all especially – Charmara (pool bar at the Palace), Rumesh, Arminda, Fernando, Sachin, Pasi, Win, Sande, Manchee, Poonan, Sanju, Imma, Samee, Torre, Nipuna, Chamara (clean team at the Palace), Ken (our room attendant), Luis, Marshall, Lenir, Nilan, Nanhour (clean team on Atoll side), Ahlam, Prashan (24 hour bar), Maleesha (Atoll side) and all the senior management we encountered were all friendly and welcoming.

    Ever since I landed in this wonderful resort, Riu Palace Maldives, I have been greeted by people whose smiles and professionalism throughout the vacation introduced me to an atmosphere of pampering and relaxation. I have literally experienced life in paradise. I had absolutely everything I desired, landscapes, the ocean, fish, birds, white sand, palm trees, complemented by services that were outstanding. Everything was organized professionally, achieving perfection. For this, I particularly thank Zully, the resort manager, Marshall, the restaurant manager and the entire team led by him, Yusuf who served us with a smile, Annabella, the charming lady who took care of us, and at the bar, the beautiful Desy who was extremely attentive to our needs. I love you all, Gina.

    I just returned from my 1-week holiday at Riu Palace Maldives. We came to celebrate the New Year's Eve, and we had the best start of 2024. The place is beautiful, clean, with amazing views (the water, the sky) and delicious food. The New Year's Eve Gala Dinner exceeded my expectation in every sense: the richness of the menu, so full of quality options and colors. I wished I could try it all, but it was impossible. I had to stick to the delicacies such as lobster, sushi, fresh grilled fish and exotic fruits (mangosteen, lychee, rambutan, mango, etc.) I want to take this opportunity to thank the personal for making our holiday such an amazing experience, because on top of all it's the people that makes a place truly wonderful. First on my list to thank must be the beautiful and always present and professional resort manager Zully. She was always ready to improve our experience, and it was a pleasure to talk to her in Spanish every day. Then, I would like to thank Marshall, the restaurant manager and his entire team for great service, the kitchen staff for making us fat with the delicious food they cooked every day. I would like to name the people that served us with the best of smiles every day: the young intern Yusuf - so friendly and sincere in welcoming us with a smile; Annabella, the lovely lady always ready to joke with us. At the bar, I must name Desy who is so charming and beautiful, always attentive to our needs. Her smile and nature are infectious and you get a sense of peace. These are the people that I most interacted with, but everyone is friendly and helpful, so I recommend a visit. You will not regret it!

    We had booked the Riu Atol side of this resort not knowing the difference between the Atol and the Palace, which are both the same hotel connected by a long board walk over the beautiful crystal clear waters. On arrival we quickly realised that the Atol was not for us and upon enquiry to reception they could move us to the Palace side the next day. By 10am on our second day we were happily settled into our room on the Palace side and noticed a distinct difference. Lack of children, quieter, service was top notch, clientele dressed more....elegantly I guess. Room service is available over here, bar is stocked with 4 spirits, mixers and beer, and ice machines every 30m or so along the pathways. The Atol side has no room service and only beer in the minibar, and no other drinks will be supplied, even if you want to pay for them (we booked all inclusive). We like sitting on our balcony having a GnT in the evening and the Palace side makes that possible. We booked a direct beach front access room as we had no intention of staying in an over water bungalow, it's just too confined for us, we like to wander around. The rooms are big, well appointed, fabulous air-conditioning and beach towels replaced as and when required. I'd highly recommend bringing your own mask and snorkel because the shallow waters go for miles and remain 1-3 foot deep with fish and hard coral a plenty. I easily spent 2 hours at a time just floating around watching the fish and crustaceans. The buffet has a good mix of food and there are 2 other restaurants you can book into on this side of the resort for 630 or 830 seating. The Japanese restaurant was especially delicious. There is also another steak restaurant over on the Atol side. The service at the pool bar is outstanding and super friendly with great music every night. It took us a couple of days to settle into the routine on the island but now we don't want to leave (tomorrow 😔). I can highly recommend the jet ski rides and we caught the seaplane from Male to the hotel which was a great way to see the beautiful islands in all their glory. We only got to spend 5 nights here (😪) as we had 2 weeks self driving around sri lanka in a 1980s jeep (that's another post) and a week in Malaysia so it's been a big trip. The Riu Palace was our wind down at the end of our long trip and fully fulfilled our expectations of this bucket list location. Thank you to the team here, we have had a wonderful stay. X we will be back some day.

    Scrivo questa recensione il giorno dopo essere tornato da questo posto incantato. Situato nell’atollo di Dhaalu, Riu Palace è la soluzione ideale per chi cerca il massimo del relax, del comfort senza rinunciare al divertimento. La struttura è divisa in due isole, la parte Riu Palace appunto che vanta 5 stelle (nella quale ho alloggiato) e la parte Riu Atoll a 4 stelle. Le due isole sono unite da un pontile fatto di water villas. CAMERE Tutti gli alloggi sono grandi e spaziosi e dotati di ogni confort (c’è persino la possibilità di farsi dei cocktail da solo, essendo tutte le stanze dotate di dispenser con rhum, vodka e gin). Le sistemazioni con accesso diretto alla spiaggia come quella che ci hanno assegnato sono incantevoli anche se molto umide (l’aria condizionata era costantemente accesa a 21º per evitare che la stanza diventasse un lago e la notte si dormiva con la copertina). CUCINA Ottima la cucina, che accontenta un po’ tutti i gusti, non trascurando le specialità maldiviane. C’è anche la possibilità di mangiare nei ristoranti alla carta ma occorre prenotare con due giorni d’anticipo attraverso la loro app (le prenotazioni vengono caricate alla mezzanotte e i posti sono pochissimi, quindi occorre essere rapidi: consiglio vivamente il Krystal e lo Yuhi. ATTIVITÀ Nella parte Atoll si possono svolgere la maggior parte delle attività: ci sono una palestra, piccola ma bellissima con vista mare, la Spa e infine canoe e sup che vengono noleggiati gratuitamente. Per muoversi dal Palace all’Atoll sempre presente un servizio caddy, anche se la passeggiata per spostarsi da un’isola all’altra è di poco più di 10 minuti. MARE La spiaggia, il reef e il mare sono incantevoli e nella parte Palace si vive in un silenzio e una pace surreali. Insomma, sembra di stare in paradiso! PERSONALE L’accoglienza e l’attenzione poi del personale fanno il resto. Ci si sente davvero coccolati e viziati da quando si mette piede nell’isola fino a quando si va via. Menzione speciale meritano Aminda e Annabella che su tutti ci hanno sempre dedicato tante attenzioni. Ps: forse tra gli aspetti da migliorare ci sarebbe quello di trovare una soluzione per evitare che le camere diventino dei frigoriferi per evitare l’umidità, e l’idea di mettere anche del personale che parli tra le varie lingue l’italiano, ma sicuramente questo non scalfisce la valutazione finale che è a dir poco eccellente!!

    Like everyone else says, buggy service is awful which means a lot of walking in 30 degree heat with no shelter - tons of reviews saying the same which strangely still has not prompted them to improve the service. I could get over this if it wasn't for the extremely aggressive confrontation we encountered with the buggy driver following our complaint at the lack of service. When trying to board the buggy after waiting 20mins, the driver stopped us and continually shouted at us for some time, in front of other guests, obviously upset that we had put in a complaint, and would not let us get on the buggy until he had finished. Obviously distressing experience and would not recommend.

    Pros: Great viewssss (unreal) The room with the sea view is unmatched Snorkeling (you have to do this in Maldives) A lot of free water activities Gym (great views from the gym when working out) Rooms are kept clean Amazing food choices and the chefs are really friendly and accommodating Cons Cocktails are not great at all Buggies don’t run often (especially at night) which is a pain because it’s a 20 mins walk each time and it’s super hot Evening entertainment isn’t the greatest (entertainment can end at 10pm on some nights) so not much to do after dinner. The hotel doesn’t really have great snack options after dinner, if you get hungry. FYI- one of the night buggy workers didn’t do his shift and we had to wait for over an hour and when we complained, he came to use hostile and almost refused to let us on the buggy. We complained about this but not much was done. Overall, you will never get views anywhere else in the world and the snorkeling there is UNREAL. However, they could offer more for the price. Also, should out to Jensen! He is one of the workers in the restaurant section. Always smiling and made our experience a happy one.

    Сказочные мальдивы ❤️🥰 прекрасный отель, с замечательным обслуживанием. Мы проживали в RiU PALACE, она считается 5-кой. Здесь более спокойно и уединенно . Все активности находятся на соседнем острове 4-ке, куда можно доехать на багги через мост и любоваться красотами. В плане еды, мы не привередливые , нам понравилось абсолютно всё. Сервис замечательный . По поводу пляжа , попали в период отливов , но это только к вечеру . Выглядит не так презентабельно , но с утра до 15-16 часов , идеально . По пляжу больше понравилась 4 -ка. А вообще отличный отель . Рекомендую ❤️
