Whykik110 TripAdvisor review

After being more than impressed in Jan 2023, we decided to go back. From the moment we arrived till we left, we were treated as if we were the only guests in the resort. Everything from the room (519) to the food and drinks, the activities and the staff were all superb. When they say "all-inclusive", that is exactly what you get. All the food, all the drinks you could ask for, and cocktails and shooters you didn't even know existed. The mini-bar in the room consists of bottles of Jack Daniels, Absolute Vodka, Gin and wine. This gets replenished daily, or as required. The house reef is exceptional and within close proximity to our room. We spent hours each days following the reef, seeing an abundance of tropical fish, turtles and manta rays, as well as reef sharks and dolphins. Special mention to Karouna (Duty Manager), who would visit you at breakfast or lunch each day and have a chat, making sure everything was perfect and listening to feedback for future improvements. She was very welcoming and easy to talk to and she genuinely wanted to know about you. Further special mention to my best resort friends, namely Kasun, Pubadu and Pradeep, the world's best barmen. Always on hand making sure your drink was full. Offering different varieties of shooters and cocktails and knowing your timetable to ensure you were not kept waiting. They have a great memory, because they remembered us from the previous year and remembered our favorite drinks. I would also like to acknowledge Ahad, who diligently serviced our room each day. He did a great job, got to know what you liked, how you liked it and made sure to service it that way. Lastly, the staff in the restaurants (too many to name, but you know who you are), always opening a door, clearing a plate, making sure you had everything you needed, including table water. (We don't drink table water, but they served it regardless). Shout out to the Chef and his team, the food was nothing short of delicious. All the offerings, from a wide range of cuisines were delivered flawlessly. Every mouthful left you wanting more, and more was to be had. (4kg's heavier on my return). I hope Accor and Mercure read this review and recognize and reward the special people that make the Mercure Maldives Koodoo Resort the best place we have ever stayed. Next year has already been booked and can't wait to return to all the smiling faces and exceptional service.

Great first vacation in the Maldives!

This was a first trek to the Maldives for us, and we spent 30+ hours traveling to Male. A bit disappointed to have to wait another 4+ hours more for our flight to Kooddoo. Assan greeted us in Male and was so helpful and pleasant, and he answered so many of our questions while we waited. Once we arrived we were welcomed by your lovely staff and immediately felt at home! The resort is simply beautiful and really well designed. We were staying in an Overwater Sunset Pool Villa, and wow, it was more beautiful in person! It was comfortable and roomy, and everything was so well thought out. The amazing outdoor shower with rainhead, glass window in the floor, outdoor deck with super comfy chaise loungers, and even steps into the ocean! The ONLY complaint about our room was how dark the bathroom was (yes, women need good light in the bathroom) Ahad kept our room immaculately clean and well stocked, and his “messages” in palm fronds on the bed were lovely! We appreciated the friendly service in Alita, with Tia and Alisha. Our favorite meals were enjoyed in Vista though! JoAnn, Smith, Kunal, and Ali took such great care of us, and the food was wonderful. Special requests there were never a problem. Poolside area was lovely and bar staff attentive. We appreciated the extra efforts your staff took to make Valentines Day extra special for your guests. We met Karouna Sellapillay a few days into our stay, and she took extra steps to ensure we could enjoy as much of our departure day as possible (11:40 pm flight). That was very much appreciated! Overall your staff was excellent, and every member would say hello with a smile. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and do hope to return again!

We went for our honeymoon in Feb 2023. This was the trip of a lifetime! It took 2 days of travel to get to the resort but it was TOTALLY worth it. We stayed in an over-water villa and it was literally like we were above an aquarium. We saw nurse sharks, black tip sharks, rays, and lots of fish right from our deck. We enjoyed our infinity pool for cooling off but mostly enjoyed heading right into the ocean straight from our deck. We snorkeled and/or SCUBA dove every day. The coral, fish, turtles, sharks, rays, and octopus on the house reef were incredible. We went on a dolphin cruise that was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Thank you so much to Alina, Agus and the hard-working and friendly boat crew for the amazing SCUBA trips. Rooms were clean, modern, well-appointed and gorgeous. Climate control and internet were great. The indoor & outdoor showers were much appreciated. Food was the best we've ever had at a resort. The variety, quality, and care put into the food was second to none. We still don't understand how there was so much variety given remote this place is. They do have a garden on-site. There was a different cuisine theme every night at Alita (the main restaurant). Kudos to head chef Roberto. We also can't say enough about the amazing pastry chef Anuruuda who you would often see arranging displays and helping you find a spoon for his creations if you forgot to take one! His peanut butter cake was to die for and I loved the coconut pancakes. The staff were incredible. Smith always took great care of us at Alita. The Italian restaurant was also incredible - especially the risotto. The aranchini and pizza were also great. Okay - everything was great! Massage by Darma was incredible. Wish there was more information provided/communication from the front desk staff re: flights - but this may be related to the airlines and general procedures that they are accustomed to (and we were less comfortable with but had to just trust it would all work out... and it did). Have told many people about this amazing place- wish we could get there more easily and go back every year!

Dear nicolesH1050YY, Thank you immensely for sharing your incredible honeymoon experience with us! We are overjoyed to hear that your stay with us at Mercure Maldives Kooddoo was truly a trip of a lifetime. It's fantastic to hear that your over-water villa felt like a paradise above an aquarium, offering breathtaking views of nurse sharks, black tip sharks, rays, and an array of colorful fish right from your deck. We're thrilled that you made the most of our infinity pool and enjoyed direct access to the ocean. Your adventures in snorkeling and SCUBA diving, exploring the coral, fish, turtles, sharks, rays, and octopus on the house reef, sound absolutely enchanting. We're delighted that our team members Alina, Agus, and the boat crew contributed to your amazing SCUBA trips and made your dolphin cruise one of the most beautiful experiences of your life. It's wonderful to hear that you found our rooms clean, modern, and well-appointed, and that you appreciated the indoor and outdoor showers, as well as the climate control and internet facilities. We're thrilled that our culinary offerings exceeded your expectations, and we'll be sure to pass along your compliments to head chef Roberto and pastry chef Anuruuda. It's heartening to hear that our staff members, including Smith, provided you with incredible service at Alita and that you enjoyed the dining experience at our Italian restaurant and lastly the incredible Massage by Darma. Thank you for your feedback regarding communication from the front desk staff. We will certainly take this into account and strive to improve our communication process in the future. We truly appreciate your kind words and recommendations to others about our resort. It would be our absolute pleasure to welcome you back to Mercure Maldives Kooddoo, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon.

Colleen W TripAdvisor review

This was a first trek to the Maldives for my husband and I, celebrating both of our recent retirements, and we spent 30+ hours traveling to Male from Colorado. A bit disappointed to have to wait another 4+ hours more for our 1-hour flight to Kooddoo. But Assan greeted us at the airport in Male and was so helpful and pleasant, and he answered so many of our questions while we waited to board our Maldivian Airways flight. When we finally arrived we were whisked over to the resort in a golf cart, about a one minute ride from the airport, and were welcomed by your lovely staff. We immediately felt at home! Our flight was late departing Male, so our room was ready when we arrived. The resort is simply beautiful and really well designed. We were staying in an Overwater Sunset Pool Villa, and wow, it was even more beautiful in person! It was comfortable and roomy, and everything was so well thought out. The amazing outdoor shower with rainhead, glass window in the floor (we couldn’t walk by without checking which fish were swimming below!), outdoor deck with super comfy chaise loungers, and even steps into the ocean! And the view……OMG just gorgeous!!! The ONLY complaint about our room was how dark the bathroom was (yes, women need good light in the bathroom) Ahad kept our room immaculately clean and well stocked, and his “messages” in palm fronds on the bed were lovely! We appreciated the friendly service every morning at the terrific breakfast buffet in Alita, especially by Tia and Alisha. But our very favorite meals were our nightly dinners in Vista, the Italian restaurant! JoAnn and her team of Smith, Kunal, and Ali took such great care of us, and the food was really wonderful. Special requests there were never a problem. We talked and laughed with all of them, and we can’t thank them enough! Poolside area was lovely and bar staff was attentive. We appreciated the extra efforts your staff took to make Valentines Day extra special for your guests! We took advantage of the free snorkel equipment, which we signed out on day 1 and didn't have to return until the day before departure. We also did the jet ski excursion and definitely enjoyed that. We met Karouna Sellapillay from Guest Services a few days into our stay, and she took many extra steps to ensure we could enjoy as much of our departure day as possible (11:40 pm flight). That was very much appreciated, thank you Karouna! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our surroundings, between the turquoise and deep blue waters, and watching the spectacular colored fish that were just everywhere! (also the black reef tip sharks which didn't seem to bother with anyone during our stay) The entire staff was excellent, and every member would say hello with a smile while passing. The resort definitely exceeded our expectations! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and do hope to return again to the Maldives! A huge thank you to everyone at Mecure Maldives Kooddoo!! :)

Dear ColleenW479, Thank you so much for your heartwarming review! We are absolutely thrilled to hear that your stay with us at Mercure Maldives Kooddoo was nothing short of exceptional. We understand that the journey to paradise can be long, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by the delay in your flight to Kooddoo. However, we're delighted to hear that Assan provided you with excellent service at the airport, setting the tone for your memorable stay. It brings us immense joy to know that you felt immediately at home upon arrival and that you found our Overwater Sunset Pool Villa to be a little piece of heaven. Your detailed description of the villa and its amenities truly warms our hearts, and we're thrilled that you enjoyed every aspect of your accommodation, from the comfortable furnishings to the breathtaking views. We appreciate your feedback regarding the bathroom lighting, and we will certainly take this into consideration for future improvements. It's also wonderful to hear that Ahad provided you with attentive and friendly service throughout your stay, and we'll be sure to pass along your compliments to him. We're delighted that you enjoyed the dining experiences at Alita and Vista, and we're glad that Tia, Alisha, JoAnn, Smith, Kunal, and Ali took such great care of you. It's heartening to hear that our team's efforts to make Valentine's Day special were appreciated. We're thrilled that you took advantage of the snorkeling equipment and the jet ski excursion, and that you thoroughly enjoyed the turquoise waters and vibrant marine life. Your kind words about our entire team mean the world to us, and we're delighted to hear that we exceeded your expectations. Thank you once again for choosing Mercure Maldives Kooddoo for your special celebration. We would be honored to welcome you back in the future for another unforgettable experience in paradise!
