Luxurious relaxation is the mood of the moment at the Eriyadu Island Resort in the Maldives. Hidden on the Northwest of North Male Atoll, the Eriyadhu is a picture-perfect retreat. This tranquil island is surrounded by immaculate white, sandy beaches and a fine lagoon. Small and unique, here you can immerse yourself in typical Maldivian friendly hospitality and still enjoy all the activities and luxuries you would expect from a magnificent four star resort.
From the moment you arrive (by speedboat of course!) on this exquisitely beautiful island, you?ll find your cares simply drifting away. The Eriyadu Island Resort is a peaceful island escape with a wonderfully laid-back atmosphere.
Just imagine yourself floating effortlessly in that exquisite pool... or strolling along the pristine sands of the private beach. To ensure guest truly relax, the spa offers a selection of pampering treatments for you to try when you?re not whiling away the hours in the glorious sunshine.
Other facilities include a delightful restaurant and bar with live entertainment on some evenings, a coffee shop, watersports, a fitness centre and other sports such as badminton and volleyball. So if you want to be active and energetic, you can!
And at night, simply retire to your stylish and very spacious accommodation and listen to the waves lapping the shore as you fall asleep.

We checked into this resort yesterday. Since then we have been experiencing a total racial discrimination. The best rooms are alloted to fair skinned foreigners from European countries or USA Australia and we were given all the back rooms with hardly any sea view...
The air conditioners are not working, the towels, soaps,were not kept in the rooms and were not given even when we asked. In the morning when we occupied a table for breakfast, we were asked to get up from the table and told to shift to another table. We came to know later that the table was kept for white skinned persons.
We do not know how much more racial discrimination we will have to endure till we check out. Since we have already paid the money in advance we do not have much choice.
Would not recommend this resort to non-whites.
My boyfriend and I loved our week here. Did lots of snorkelling.. plenty of sharks and beautiful fish, we saw a turtle...
Tasty food and awesome room right on beach. Friendly staff. Highly recommended. We definitely would return
When booking your trip make sure that you get the cottage with the beach access otherwise forget it . Our room has no shampoo holder and we ended up putting out stuff on the floor . It’s weird also that they knock on your door after dinner and offer to clean the room ? Don’t they usually do it during the day ? Take note that they don’t have free water in the restaurant.They do supply each room with 2 500 ml water . The house reef is very good and accessible.
The good points. Food, Island and House Reef were all lovely and the reason for 2 stars!
The Bad bit. I arrived at the airport, and it took 1.5 hours to clear immigration...
I then went and found the rep, who told me that there would another wait of an hour. I wouldn't mind if it was because i had missed the boat due to the immigration delay, but that wasn't the case. An hour later myself and a fellow passenger found the rep again and we were told that we still had to wait but no idea how long. It was then another hour before we finally left for the resort.
This was a bit of a pain, but I was fairly happy and would have forgotten about it had it not been even worse leaving the resort.
I was told that my checkout time was 1200 with a transfer to the airport soon after, to enable me to get my flight at 1640. With this in mind, i didn't have an early night before leaving and enjoyed a few drinks in the evening. I then got a wakeup call at 0500, being so early i thought this was a mistake. Another call came at 0530 advising me to get to reception and pay my bill. Shortly after a member of staff came to my room and told me that i had to leave now to get on the boat for 0600 back the the airport. meaning i'd be there 7.5 hours early! I was then forced to pack without time to shower or breakfast - that was already paid for. In reception i spoke to a manager and i was told that a mistake had been made with my timings and that they had known since the previous evening but hadn't bothered to tell me, thinking that 11pm was too late.
My question is how can they operate a luxury resort and charge as much as they do and then only run 2 boats a day for transfers!
Reading some other reviews, this doesn't to be a one-off. Please don't just apologize, i'd like to see some action!
We loved this resort - small, friendly, excellent house reef, delicious food, comfortable villa, good food. The service couldn't have been more helpful and considerate. We have no fault to find - and we'll be back...
