Overview

Set on a picturesque island in a gorgeous tropical lagoon is Olhuveli Beach & Spa, a luxury, all-inclusive island resort. It’s one of several resorts by the high-end Su Siyam brand, whose properties are scattered throughout the Maldives and the east coast of Sri Lanka. This large but picture-perfect resort provides an idyllic environment in which to kick back and enjoy a slower, more relaxed pace of life.

There are 164 spacious villas spread across the island, with nine different levels of accommodation ranging from stylish beachside villas to deluxe water villas with their own private jacuzzi. Common to all accommodation types are convenient amenities such as a private terrace, complimentary bottled water that’s replenished daily, air conditioning, a ceiling fan, a flat-screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, sun loungers and complimentary toiletries. The en-suite bathrooms are spacious and come with a rain shower and twin vanity units.

There’s a broad range of activities and events to suit all tastes. For those wanting simply to relax, there’s the Sun Spa with its hydrotherapy pools, jacuzzi, steam room and varied treatment menu. There’s also a lovely infinity pool, as well as the beach of course. For those looking to keep active, there are plenty of diving opportunities for both beginners and more experienced divers, along with lots of other water sports such as kayaking, windsurfing and water skiing, to name a few. Excursions to nearby islands and the Maldives’ capital, Male, are also available.

Dining options at the resort are more than plentiful, with five restaurants and three bars to choose from. If that’s not enough, guests can also opt for in-villa dining or even destination dining, where they get to choose a location on the island where they can enjoy a private meal together. The Sunset Restaurant is one of the largest overwater restaurants in the Maldives and is open for three meals a day, serving a wide range of cuisine with themed nights and live cooking stations. Mediterranean dishes are served at the beachside Lagoon Restaurant, Asian specialties are on the menu at The Four Spices, and freshly prepared seafood is available at The Plankton Grill.

Olhuveli is very child-friendly and has lots on offer to keep youngsters entertained during their stay. All of the resort’s villas can accommodate up to two children under the age of 12, with cribs, high chairs and other such facilities available on request. There’s a babysitting service, as well as a special children’s menu at the Sunset Restaurant. There’s also pool just for children and a kids club offering an array of age-appropriate games and activities. Parents are reminded to be sure to keep their children under adult supervision all the time.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
