My husband and I stayed in the sunset villa with a pool for 9 days. It was our first time being in the south Maldives and this resort exceeded our expectations. The welcoming when you arrive at Male makes you immediately feel at ease. It was nice to be able to sit in the lounge as we waited for our flight to Kooddoo. We were meet by the resort staff who made our check-in as smooth as possible as we had a long flight and were tired. Our sunset villa was beautiful and loved the pool to soak in after diving or snorkeling. We enjoyed having the viewing window in the room where we could watch the needle fish, picassco trigger fish, surgeon fish and baby black tip sharks. The snorkeling from the villa provided one with the ability to see black tip sharks, nurse sharks, turtles, spotted eagle rays, sting rays-including the cow tail sting ray, pipe fish, trumpet fish and once you got to the house reef the amount of coral and fish were incredible and in really good condition. We enjoyed and appreciated the bed decorations done by our housekeeper, Bawantha. We ate most of our meals at the Alida restaurant which had a wide array of food choices for each individual. We loved how the Alida restaurant provided different ethnic food each evening especially the local Maldivian, Sri Lankan and Asian cuisines. The pastries that were provided each day at breakfast would compete with any Michelin restaurant. The chefs were Anurudda, Desta, Rangana, Amith and Sugath and they need to be commended for the excellent cuisine they provided at each meal. They would come to your table to see if there was anything you needed or wanted. These chefs provided excellent food and were so personable that they made dining an experience each day. A special recognition needs to be given to the staff who work at Alida. The staff are professional, willing to make sure you have your needs met, are friendly and personable and made the dining experience enjoyable. We would like to recognize Dharmika, Abraham, Hassan, Shaheed, Alisha, Stefina, Nakala, and Kamal as these individuals went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and taken care of as well. I know I am missing a few names but the entire staff at Alida and Vista do a remarkable job of providing exceptional customer service. We are scuba divers and the dive shop, Suvadiva Dive Water Sports Center, is a top notch dive operation. Gracia is the manager and ensures that the smooth operation of this center along with it being safe. We dove each day and we had Agus as our dive guide for 6 dives before he left on his vacation. He provided excellent briefings, you knew your dive profile, provided information about each dive site as to what you may see along with the potential currents and dived the way we like to dive. He was very helpful with helping my husband with his BCD as he would put it on in the ocean. Then we had Imir for the remainder of dives. He is like Agus in that he is very experienced, provides excellent dive briefings, communicates effectively about the dive site and dives in the manner that we like to dive. If you are a scuba diver, would we would highly recommend you dive with this dive operation. We also want to give special recognition to our boat captain, Naseer, and boat crew, Matibul and MD:Rukraian. They did an excellent job in getting us to the dive sites and picking us up. We enjoyed the diving as it is very different than North Maldives as it is mostly pelagic. You will not be disappointed as you will see every kind of shark, green and hawksbill turtles, spotted eagle rays, cow tailed sting rays, morey eels, treavalies, jacks, Napoleon wrasse, damsel, fusiliers etc. The water is 30 degrees C and has great visibility. We also partook in the excursions that were offered. We did the dolphin excursion and saw spinner dolphins. We did the snorkeling excursion and were surprised by seeing a 5 m tiger shark! The jet ski experience with Shahid was amazing. He took me out to where we saw 500 spinner dolphins. It was an incredible experience. We would recommend any of these excursions as they are all well run and are very enjoyable. The Mercure Resort was an incredible experience. The assistance at the Male airport was not expected but was appreciated. We had a 40 hour flight back home but the memories of our experiences at this resort made the trip worth it. We will definitely come back for the diving, the staff, the excursions, and the ambience of this resort. Thank you to all of the staff at Mercure Kooddoo and look forward to seeing you again! Diane and Brian

Perfection in a tiny package

Mercure has managed to create a "once in a lifetime" experience that is sure to please both seasoned and beginner traveller's alike. From the moment you collect your bags upon arrival in Male, the Mercure Kooddoo takes over to ensure a stress-free start to your holiday in the paradise of the Maldives. A quick flight to Kooddoo and a cart ride to the resort is your introduction to the beautifully maintained and staffed compound looking out over the inner lagoon of this atoll. Throughout the nine days we stayed here, our every request was met with a joyous, professional and prompt response. The bed was heavenly, the refreshments were customized to your individual preferences, housekeeping was always thorough and prompt, activities and excursions were amazing, and dining was varied and consistently of excellent quality. You can really sense the pride taken by the staff to reach the highest levels of hospitality in this tiny corner of the world. By the time we left, we felt as though we were truly appreciated for sharing our time with these wonderful people. And although it is highly unlikely we will ever see the Maldives again, it certainly will not be for our experiences here. Congratulations Mercure, you have achieved at the highest level with this property!

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with warm smiles and exceptional hospitality from the staff, making us feel truly welcomed and at home. Our experiences were made truly memorable by the fantastic team at the dive center, especially Kochey and Shard. Their expertise and enthusiasm added an extra layer of excitement to our underwater adventures, making each excursion unforgettable. And let's talk about the food – simply outstanding! From sumptuous seafood delicacies to international cuisine, every meal was a culinary delight. The restaurant staff went above and beyond to ensure our dining experience was exceptional, even making my birthday celebrations truly special with their thoughtful gestures. As for the accommodations, they were nothing short of a dream. The rooms, meticulously designed and impeccably maintained, provided the perfect sanctuary after a day of exploration. Every detail was carefully curated, ensuring maximum comfort and luxury throughout our stay. What truly sets The Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort apart, however, is not just its stunning setting or luxurious amenities, but the genuine warmth and hospitality of its staff. From booking our stay to bid farewell, the entire process was seamless, thanks to the efficient communication with the staff. My husband and I loved every second spent at the resort. We are looking forward to booking another trip in the future!
