Over Biyadhoo Island Resort

Uiteraard zijn alle faciliteiten aanwezig om de wateren te verkennen. Daarnaast is er een soort spa, al wordt het hier minder formeel benoemd; dat typeert het hele eiland-resort waar eenvoudigweg genieten voorop staat. Zo is er slechts één restaurant, maar wel eentje met verrukkelijke maaltijden. In het hoogseizoen wordt een live bandje of de disco ingezet.

Voor duikers is dit het mekka; de rijke onderwaterwereld biedt fraaie koraalriffen en een enorm scala bont gekleurde koraalvissen, zeesterren en ander dergelijk moois. De Malediven zijn tevens een schitterende bestemming voor uw huwelijksreis.
"Not everyone's cup of tea"
Well what can I say.. I'ts for sure not everyone's cup of tea.. Garbage everywhere, local burning of trash -> you could both see and smell the smoke.. Accomodation has not been updated for a VERY long time, which brings it to the bottom of Maldives resorrs, maybe only beaten by Asdu Sun Island. Severe beach erosion, a lot of sand bags and 90 % of the stony corals are now dead :-( The extra star is for friendly staff, very soft sand and adult reef sharks on the reef. Sorry, not planning on going back,,
"Back Again- a great holiday but some changes for the worse"
Back to beautiful Biyadhoo for a second visit - this time with daughter and a couple of friends. First the ( very) good- The staff remain brilliant- friendly and attentive. They made a great show of remembering us from 4 years ago. They manage to strike a brilliant balance between being deferential without being obsequious and friendly without being over familiar. We were all inclusive and in the bar the staff noted immediately if our glasses were empty and offered another drink- within 24h they remembered your normal preference and offered this when you walked in. It was a bit like a fantasy of visiting you local where the barman knew your name, your favourite tipple and everything was free- I loved it! Our table waiter 'John' was also very friendly and engaging. As previously he worked incredibly hard but always appeared cheerful. The resort gradually filled up after we arrived and it was amazing to watch him chatting to other guests in German , Italian and even Japanese. He appreciated our efforts to say please and thank you in Maldivian ( Dhivehi) and tried to teach us a few more words. Personally I would have felt more comfortable trying to use his real name however hard to pronounce! The rooms have not changed and remain basic but clean and functional with super efficient air conditioning, a shower and a comfortable bed. They were cleaned several times a day by an unobtrusive room boy. They provide everything that is needed and we never felt the need of anything more luxurious. The food was ample in quantity and quality- especially if you like fish and vegetable curries. Western alternatives are available and the salads, breads and desserts were great. Overall we still love the 'vibe' of Biyadhoo which is unpretentious and informal and provides amazing value- after all you are swimming in the same waters and enjoying the same tropical sun as those in expensive boutique hotels paying at least twice as much. The house reef is reputed to be one of the best in the Maldives although there were fewer fish and more dead coral than during our last visit. Sadly there were some changes which were not so great and mean that we will probably not return for a third visit- these are all beyond the control of the wonderful staff at Biyadhoo but some could be addressed by the owners. The worst was the terrible state of the seas around the island. The water was full of floating plastic and other debris and the beaches were constantly bombarded with plastic floating litter ( despite the constant efforts of the beach cleaners) This was not a noticeable problem 4 years ago. I was shocked when we went on a Dolphin watching trip ( on which we saw hundreds of dolphins) to note that the whole atoll is awash with floating rubbish . Biyadhoo is not far from Male and the infamous 'garbage island' of Thilafushi ( Google it) and sadly seems to be downstream of the resulting stream of floating rubbish.. The resort became increasingly full during our stay. The resulting sewage ( hopefully treated?) is discharged through pipes which end at the edge of the reef. There is an intermittent smell of sewage and on one occasion during an early morning snorkel ( attempting to avoid the hoards of day trippers- see below) we found ourselves swimming past a 'brown smoker' and engulfed in a faeculent smelling cloud of discharge- not pleasant! I appreciate that the sewage has to end up in the sea but longer outfall pipes and storing sewage to discharge during the hours of darkness would be preferable. The second major issue was the hoards of day trippers visiting the reef. There were seldom less then 3 boats moored off the reef with constant coming and going of boats as well as jet skis and even frequent sea plane landings. There were often 20 or 30 visiting snorkelers swimming the reef which was therefore in a constant state of disturbance. The boats often arrived at high speed which was alarming when snorkelling outside the reef. They sometimes played loud music and some of the day trippers had little regard for protecting the reef and often stood on the coral or walked near to the reef stirring up clouds of sand. We also noticed many visiting boats feeding the reef fish to attract them near the boats- this disturbs the reef ecosystem and is also dangerous as fish may start to associate swimmers with food which can stimulate aggressive behaviour. No attempt was made to police the behaviour of day trippers ( or of occasional residents ignoring reef etiquette) we mentioned this issue to the manager as we were checking out and were advised that the visiting boats pay the resort for the right to snorkel the reef. As mentioned above virtually all of the reef is now bleached/ dead although a few of the larger brain corals were still alive and there quite a lot of sponges and soft corals . This is probably mainly to do with climate change and El Nino although I did wonder if some of it ( as well as the reduced fish numbers - especially the shy /pelagic species seen at our last visit) might also be related o the constant disturbance of the reef by day boats. The resort now has Wi-Fi in the bar and reception. This is a change from the previous 'no shoes, no news' ambience. I was sad to see many couples sat ignoring each other while they fiddled with their mobile devices but I guess this is their choice. In summary fabulous staff, a beautiful environment sadly being destroyed by global changes and some evidence that the owners are destroying what makes Biyadhoo so special in their attempts to get maximum income from it.
"its a good hotel for family Holiday, Supper service make our stay in Maldives memorable. team biyadhoo thank you"
team keep it up, will do some more visits, Excelent food and smail service are most valuble things that you give us on our holiday stay, supper silent enviroment make much relax on our stay, Clean beach and lagoon are valuble
Had a great 30th anniversary holiday food is first rate staff friendly and resort excellent.Room accommodation is basic but has needs covered.The main beech is superb for snorkeling in lagoon and over reef drop off,we saw sea turtles,(small!) Black tipped sharks,reef fish were stunning,also enjoyed watching fruit bats,herons etc on beech.I think beech litter(mostly washed up)may be something that needs more attention by resort operators.
"Best holiday ever"
Rooms are basic but worth for the price paid. Foods are delicious but spicy sometimes. Island is clean but beach needs to clean more often. We had an amazing snorkelling around the house reef. Saw lots of turtles, rays and beautiful fishes. Staff very attentive and friendly. We will definitely return soon. Thank you Biyadhoo.
