Huvafen Fushi – The word that comes to mind when I think
of the Huvafen Fushi is disappointment.
Disappointment in the service, the accommodations, the
food, the island itself. Complete disappointment.
We arrived at Huvafen after four days at The One and Only
– Maldives so we were comparing everything to Fantastic
Bombastic and I can honestly say Huvafen fell short.
The resort has only been open a few years but it sure looks
weathered and worn. The floors in the rooms are scuffed
and faded, the speakers on the deck rusted and corroded,
the room just felt dingy and dirty.
The lounge bar was described as “chic” and “trendy”,
however to me, plastic lighted stools and bean bag chairs
screams cheap and tacky not chic and trendy.
a private dinner prepared especially for us by the resorts a
private dinner prepared especially for us by the resorts
chef? She even met with us earlier in the day to discuss our
culinary likes and dislikes as well as wine pairings. We were
excited at what she had in store!
As with everything else at Huvafen (except the spa) we were
extremely disappointed. Our private dinner in the wine
cellar was the biggest rip off of the trip. We felt we had
been totally ripped off. The food was barely mediocre, the
service, lacking, lacking, lacking. The chef didn’t even
bother to come down and see how we were doing or how we
were enjoying our dinner. It sure felt like dinner had been
prepared in advance and just warmed and served to us.
We suspect she was off at someone else’s “private dinner”
I could go on with how Huvafen let us down but I’ll save you
the time and sum it up with this is a resort trying to compete
in the luxury market but they don’t come close to measuring
up. If you want service and top of the line accommodations,
keep looking, this place will just let you down. My
