Maafushivaru retains TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for fourth year
Maafushivaru has won the Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor for the fourth year.
In an announcement, Maafushivaru, which is owned and operated by pioneers of Maldives tourism industry Universal Resorts, expressed its confidence in winning the title once again next year.
“This success is a barometer of our products and services extended by our hard working team members to provide the ultimate Maldivian experience,” Ronald Schweighardt, Resort Manager, was quoted in the announcement, as saying.
Now in its seventh year, the Certificate of Excellence designation recognises establishments that consistently earn great reviews on TripAdvisor from travellers.
It accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travellers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
“This recognition helps travellers identify and book properties that regularly deliver great service. TripAdvisor is proud to play this integral role in helping travellers feel more confident in their booking decisions,” TripAdvisor’s Vice President of Industry Marketing Heather Leisman was quoted in a statement issued by the platform.
Set in the picturesque atoll of Ari and accessible by a scenic seaplane flying over the breathtaking archipelago of Maldives and its mysterious atoll formations, Maafushivaru is an island that charms guests with its dazzling turquoise lagoon, knitted with lush flora and wide sandy beaches. A stone’s throw away is Lonubo, its very own desert island, all set to provide couples with an intimate island experience.
The resort offers a choice of three distinct villas. Beach Villas sit on the postcard perfect beach with views out to the sea, while the chic Water Villas offer panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. Families or friends travelling together will find the Pool Villas ideal as they come with two separate villas with a shared private pool. All villas are fine-tuned with hints of modern architecture and design.
Maafushivaru’s main restaurant overlooks the lagoon and offers a buffet of international and local flavours. 135° East is a contemporary Teppanyaki and Sushi restaurant with its own overwater pavilion. The Library Lounge coffee shop serves a range of tea and specialty coffees. There is also bar and a wine chiller.
