... cook for myself. It is also nice to just sit on the deck and read ( something I rarely do at home ) and watch the ships and occasional dolphins go by...very relaxing. Although there are nearly 2000 passengers on the ship, it's surprising how you can still find quiet places to just sit and read. Ultimate deck party was last night, live music, dancing and MORE food( at dinner tonight tried escargot....a bit rubbery, definitely an acquired taste...and found it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Embudu Village Emboodhu Finolhu
We stayed at Embudu for just one night in March 2007 and decided that we would never come back again!
I can only agree with all the wonderful things that others have said before me and disagree with anybody who has found fault.
we have just returned from embudu and had a fantastic time staff were friendly and helpfull nothing was to much trouble snorkling was out of this world and the christmas festilities was fantastic a very small island but you get to know evry one so it feels like a big family party the sea was a bit rough at times so that made the water bungalow a bit noisey at times but that would not stop me going again
Un vero paradiso!
Le parole non bastano per descrivere la meravigliosa vacanza trascorsa al villaggio Embudu, il personale era talmente cordiale e disponibile, la sistemazione era ideale, il cibo delizioso e il menù sempre vario...che budini gustosi!! L'isola in sé è semplicemente meravigliosa, è così tranquilla durante il giorno! Chissà dove se ne vanno tutti quanti! Lo snorkeling è stata un'esperienza fantastica: io non sono pratica di immersioni, ma in realtà non c'è stato alcun bisogno di immergersi. Le ragazze del centro benessere hanno le mani fatate. È veramente un posto splendido, impareggiabile per il relax e la tranquillità che offre!
Paradis absolu !
Aucun mot ne peut décrire les fantastiques vacances que nous avons passées à Embudu : le personnel était très serviable et gentil, le logement idéal, la nourriture délicieuse, avec beaucoup de choix tout les soirs... et de très bons gâteaux !! L'île est tout simplement magnifique, et si calme durant la journée qu'on se demande où sont passés les gens !!! La plongée avec tuba est fantastique, je ne pratique pas la plongée sous marine mais cela n'était pas vraiment nécessaire. Les filles du spa ont des mains d'anges. C'est un endroit magnifique, pour une totale relaxation et de la tranquillité il n'y a rien de mieux !
The resort is a little tired now (open for 30? years), but is very welcoming and the snorkelling/diving is great. This year the weather has been awful, in that it has rained most days in the last few months - really hosed down! - but it is still warm and the water is too.
Words cannot describe what a fantastic holiday we had in Embudu, staff were so helpful and friendly, accommodation ideal, food delicious, with lots of choice every evening...yummy puddings!! The islands itself is just beautiful, and soo quiet during the day, no idea where everybody goes!! The snorkelling is fantastic, I dont dive and there was no need to really. The girls in the spa have the hands of angels.
It trully is a magnificent place, for complete relaxation and tranquility, you can't beat it!
Embudu Village is a 3 star resort, in other words it doesn't have the frills expected at 4-5 star resorts, but it is excellent value. The rooms are large and comfortable, no TV but if you must watch TV then there is one in the lounge. The rooms have a fan, airconditioner, fridge, chairs, desk, wardrobe etc. There are waterbungaloes which do have TV, glass viewing panel in the floor etc.
Great low budget Maldives holiday
Just returned from a great 2 week break. The rooms could do with some refurbishment, but they are clean and comfortable. The food is very good buffet style, although breakfast is pretty much the same every day. The hotel staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. The beaches etc are well kept but the plants could do with some heavy pruning in places. Drinks prices are on a par with UK levels, and 2 jugs of fresh water are supplied every day in the rooms for free. The coral house-reef is only just starting to re-grow after the 1998 El-Ninio, but there are plenty of fish to see. The island is quite busy but always had a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Overall a very good value for money, low budget resort.
