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.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
