please do visit once in ur lifetime... most beautiful place and management is so cooperative..special thanks to Mr Manoj in Samsara hotel .we had our best holidays. one should try sea bob here .it was our first visit but we will surely visit again to be in this amazing place.

We booked a water villa room and a beach villa room. Water villa had more privacy but the beach villa had a bigger and nice room. In general, both were great stays and the family liked it. The restaurants were great, especially samsara. The food there was better than expected. Overall great service.

A beautiful island with white sandy beaches, excellent service, good diving and tasty food. We had several dives and Emily and the rest of the employees at "Best Dives" did a great job. Our sunset water villa had plenty of space, a separate pool and our children loved it! There are three restaurants, but we only tried Samsara - simply because we loved their buffet. Great service in the restaurant - particularly Valentina and Arif. Arif provided the best smoothies, juice, and fresh fruit in the morning and cotton candy shaped as flowers in the evening. We had read previous reviews about maintenance and high prices. You could see that the hotel was not new, but that was not a problem for us. There were some noice from the buggies at the jetty that you could hear in the water villas, so to avoid noice a beach villa is preferable. (This is under repair). Some examples of the prices: (in USD +service+VAT): transportation 250 per person (shared), dinner buffet 110-140 per person, 3-5 course meal 110-250 per person (not incl drinks), a coke in the minibar 7, childrens menu 10-20, a dive 120 (one dive from a boat incl equipment), 2 scope icecream 6. Water was free everywhere, and WIFi was included and worked very well most of the time.

Hotel service was a supper!! The staff make this hotel exceptional, from check in to check out were received amazing and personal service. A special thanks to our Butler Yousef and Mohammad Masoud, Hakeem & Adam from F&B for their outstanding service. We will be back someday for sure!

This is one of the best holidays I had with my family and we enjoyed every bit of it. The service level is at the highest with a wonderful crew of staff. My son and daughter enjoyed so much of the nature and the activities in the resort. I would say thank to their GM Amit and butler Majid who were truly wonderful to every guest on the island.

One of the best holidays filled with food, fun, activities for the whole family. My son aged 5 years had full fun doing Jet ski, snorkelling, watching movies under the stars. What could be better? Really the friendliest and most service oriented place.

Been coming to this hotel for the past 7 years and it is absolutely outstanding. Worth every penny if you are looking for a relaxing holiday on the sandy white beaches or the crystal clear waters ! Love every minute I am here at the Jumeirah , once a year is not enough!

A Passionate review is coming ahead. From the moment my friend and I exited the airport. There was a friendly staff with a jumeirah sign to take us to the Resort through a speed boat. A wifi was available at all time from airport , speedboat,and all over the resort. I would like to mostly extend my gratitude ,appreciation,and many thanks to Gulnaz. From the greeting point at pier all the way till the end of the stay, she was friendly,warm,always with a smile, and extremely helpful, meticulous with details she was an amazing host.We had the chance to stay in 2 types of villas: the Sunset beach villa and Sunset overwater villa. The beach villa has the advantage of an access to the beach being at shore and tanning or simply swimming. Both villlas were spacious, comfy, cosy, well air conditioned, with a touch of island taste wooden furniture. Pools were available in both villa and the views was breathtaking. The overwater villa have this glass shield on top of the floor where u r able to watch the underlying water and and a morning view to die for with a pool looking through endless horizon of clear water and soothing waves. Also you can always have your snorkeling equipment from the diving center and jump into the sea and snorkel.The transportation through the resort was either with a golf car or cycles! Each villa has its own cycles which was great! There are a vast majority of water sport activities that can be booked through the diving center and I've tried snorkeling which made me speechless the moment i put my googles into water and was taken by surprise of the beauty of the underwater life. I also booked for sunset fishing and semi-submarine, but unfortunately it was rainy and the activities got canceled, however , the resort have a play room free for all guests with a billiard table playstation and ping pong table so the rainy day was well spent on a rainy day. In addition, the talise spa avaliable on the resort was the most soothing,relaxing,and pleasant lovely experience ever with many thanks to my therapist at the time Marciel thank you for your warmth and for your amazing initiative of giving me a beautiful hair braid at the end of my treatment. It was very island inspired. The restaurants specially Samsara was very diverse in the cuisines served from a multinational breakfast to an amazing Maldivian dinner specially served on Fridays with an amazing Maldivian folklore music. The french resturant had an exquisite serving of delicate food. And the most amazing thing that was impressive that everyday at 5:30pm the stingrays were fed by resort staff which was impressive and beautiful to see. I hope i didn't miss anything from the moment the took our photo at the pier upon arrival with the caption the first steps to paradise i truly felt i was in paradise. Many thanks to Gulnaz, Marciel , and The Manager Arif who accompanied us back to the airport the last day through the speed boat and making sure to take any suggestions and feedback about the resort. In the end thanks to all friendly warm staff from housekeeping to restaurants employees . I have truly been into paradise and never wanted to come back. Kind Regards, Khulood Jamal Bin Haider

We had recently visited Jumeirah Vittaveli for 03 nights and 04 days from 26-29th July. It was one of the best relaxing holidays me & my wife had experienced in recent past. It was overall very amazing trip , enjoyed each and every moment. we are highly impressed with warm hospitality of all the staff members, amenities and activities available at the island. The food was very nice and most important you find the best Indian food even Jain food of much better quality than any other place. The dinning experience at all the four restaurants viz Swarna, Fenese, Samsara and MU Beach Bar & grill was excellent and above all our expectations. The water sports facility and spa services are of International standard. we did around 6-7 water sports activities and all of them were found very safe and managed by trained staff. Entire Hotel team was on their toes to give us the best possible services till late night, they all were real helpful and smiling all the times. In nutshell it was a dream holiday and we highly recommend readers to take this top of the world experience ): Anil Bohra , India .
