Fihalhohi Tourist Resort
Travel Blogs from South Male Atoll
There was about 10 of us arriving into our resort this morning. All couples, except Christine and I. All different nationalities, visiting from different parts of the world. We were brought into a greeting area, and given a freshly open coconut with a straw, perfect greeting. This resort is casual, it was one the closest even though it took about …
Its hard to describe what its like in the mornings to wake up to the sounds of the ocean surrounding you. The moment you walk out onto your private deck, and see the turquoise water below you. Tropical fish swimming right up to your deck to greet you as the day begins, inviting you to join them and swim for while. Christine and I brought our own …
There are moments in your life that you will always remember, the ones that truly leave you in awe, that will forever be snapshots in your mind. Flying over the islands of the Maldives will be one of them for me. A sight that I will forever save in my mind. The moment that they came into view, I was speechless. The small islands are so vivid in …
Even though the place where we are staying here in the Maldives would be considered a more " casual" resort, there are still the guests that come to an island dressed like they are going to high society luncheon instead of a shoes optional beach getaway. You can spot them right away. The luggage is usually the first giveaway, over sized, designer, …
... to visualise those slimy little critters in the garden.haha.. Bob ate his and most of mine,obviously he hasn't spent enough time in the garden )...great night ...we again turned our clocks back another hour....think it's about 6 hours now that we are behind Aus.

Historical Traveler Reviews Fihalhohi Tourist Resort South Male Atoll
Me and my boyfriend stayed at Fihalhohi 2nd july-17th. You wont be dissappointed. Its amazing. We stayed in the comfort room which is the middle room and was lovely. we booked with first choice and am still shocked they class fihal as a 3* resort!! The views are amazing, sea life and animals fab. Take your own snorkle gear and fins so you dont have to buy them. Please also do diving if you never have. We regretted not doing it so much. Open water qualification is just over £200 which is great and what a place to do it. Also make sure you do night snorkling. its very scary at 1st but you see all the fish sleeping, massive eels and even sharks out hunting. its fab!! This isnt an action holiday so if you want to chill out and see the amazing fish, its for you. We saw sharks, eels, lion fish, rays, squid, parrot fish and there is a turtle that lives in the house reef. The staff are fab and you must tip them as they go out of there way to help you and a few days in theyl know you and your room number. drinks and food are so cheap. we spent just over £500 for two weeks and drank every night and did excursions. The food is good although samey at times. Its not excellent but theres lots of choice. pancakes, waffles and crossonits in the morning and fish and curry in the evenings. i would recommend having breakfast at the surf cafe as you get tea, coffee, juice, eggs, toast and a big basket of cakes and bread for about £3!! Dont bother with excursions as they are rubbish. Especially the island hopping. This trip only showed us how amazing our island is. although shopping is good on this trip i wouldnt advise it. we also did sunset fishing but its too long and i didnt catch anything!!!
Everything we expected and more
We chose Fihalhohi because we dive and had read about the house reef. It was wonderful. Everything from Sharks and Turtles to little critters with the freedom of diving whenever you wanted.The dive shop was faultless with friendly helpful and professional staff and the boat dives were great too. Really can't fault a thing. Loved it so much going back next year
We spent our honeymoon (12 days) on Fihalhohi island on the Maldives from 26th June 2006 - 7th July 2006 and we had a wonderful time!!
We booked through Eclipse (First Choice) on a budget option for Fihalhohi Island Resort for 7 days (10 would have been better). I was a bit nervous and not sure what to expect from what they rated as a 3 star hotel but it was brilliant! It looks exactly as the website and photo's show and better which is a refreshing change!
We booked last minute with First Choice for a trip with Full Board at this resort.
Just got back from Fiha Lhohi (not sure if that's the authentic spelling or not). Fantastic two weeks with First Choice. After two months of investigation online (thank you TripAdvisor) opted for FL as it seemed no one had a bad word to say about it. A travel agent quoted a price which we then managed to reduce by a significant amount by booking on the First Choice website. Flight was excellent - I'm 6'3" and the leg room was fine, even for 11 hours. Meal was acceptable and although you have to pay for drinks (apart from tea and coffee), they're not extortionate. All round service from First Choice was very good indeed. Thanks to the rep Zita for making us feel valued.
Absolute paradise. Flew first choice airway , top class, huge seats, very comfy. Once you get to Fihalhohi a speedboat takes you to the island which is a treat in it's own right, keep an eye out fo rthe dolphins who like to race the boats on your way to the island. Once you get there you just leave the hustle and bustle behind you, look forward to a holiday with no telephones, no television, just pure relaxation.
We stayed at Fihalhohi from 08/03 - 22/03. This was our second visit to Fihalhohi. We booked and flew with First Choice. This was a much improved service from our flight in September 2005 with Monarch. Wider seats, bigger seat pitch, seat-back TV, infact exactly what they say on their website. We departed a few minutes late but made this time up enroute.
We traveled with first choice they were excellent, the island was paradise, the snorkeling was amazing and the reef drop off was so close to the shore, The food was of good quality but not a big choice, the rooms (we stayed in a comfort room No 36) was very clean and comfortable, the staff very friendly, we could not fault this beautiful island.
what a brialliant holiday!!! excellent beach, didnt wana come back. Its true paradise. one of my best holidays...
