I didn't see any Hilton representatives, so I was talking to Conrad girl waiting for another guest. Luckily Elite Inn receptionist manage to get Hilton as they have connection.Read full review
On the day of our seaplane departure, Hilton representative wait us at airport and after check in, we go to Hilton lounge in TMA Terminal, about 5 minutes journey by mini bus. The lounge was great with plenty of plush seating area oversee the TMA plane terminal. They got trial services for their spa. Wait for another 30min, have good drinks and relax, they call for departure. The plane was small but the view are well worth the money spent for this services.
Upon arrival, our island host already there, bring us to Water Edge bar and we have selection of complimentary drink to choose since we have membership level with Hilton. Our benefits was complimentary evening cocktails from 6pm-7pm.
Villa #212 (Deluxe Beach Villa) :
Very spacious, 3 day bed and well equipped with Bose sound system. Gazebo in front of our villa oversee the beach area was wonderful. They have 2 showers, one is outdoor shower. The jacuzzi located in spacious area also was very good to relax. We stay at this villa for 6 nights.
Villa #414 (Jacuzzi Water Villa)
Wow feeling when entering this villa. Glass panel at the floor to see the sea life. Spacious balcony and jacuzzi outside the room and well equipped toilet, all have view towards the ocean. Impressive!! You can direct swim to the sea from your own balcony.
Food & Beverages.
It was all delicious. We have try twice each restaurant. Ambient, food and quality was superb. I have some complaint at Flavors on certain dish. It was okay but just not impressive. Have a chance to meet the chef, supervisor and also Asst Exec Chef to tell the opinion about the food. Its a minor but I have to expressed my opinion for better. The best restaurant goes to Islander grill.
Boat used was very spacious and it was double deck. Diving was great as we could see plenty of sharks at Koen Dream, plenty of Manta at Manadhoo (Iru Fushi Manta Point) and a lot of other bigger staff. However I feel that this dive center have a lot of room for improvement in term of managing guest for diving.
Was excellent until 2 hours treatment feels like only 15minutes. Well worth it.
1) Mr Shaamy Hassan : Well taken care of my need 3 month before my arrival (through email) until the last day we depart. He have great personality and very friendly.
2) Chef Putu (Islander Grill) :Have special skill to entertain the guest and he know a lot of grill varieties although its not on the menu. You could ask him anytime if you want Bali style grilled fish.
I have a lot of great memories here and will come back for sure either on vacation, diving and earning points. Thank to all Hilton staff which made this trip are the best.

Our trip was very long, as we were travelling from Orlando, FL. So we were flying 40 hours before we arrived. The was a bit of a delay on the Sea Plane by 1.5 hours, but the Island were very apologetic when we arrived. We had not even complained. The lounge at the sea plane port was very nice so it helped with the delay.
When we arrived, we had been put in a room towards the back of the Island, which was fine. But we wanted to be near the front, as last time we stayed we were at the back of the Island, and there were a lot of mosquitoes. They had informed us before, that there were fewer mosquitos than the back of the island. They were very nice, and moved our room straight away.
The island itself is the best I have seen in the Maldives. The Hilton has done a good job at keeping the Island very well. They have kept the beaches very well, and re-pumped white sand, where the sea has taken its toll. The house reef off the water villas is fantastic. There were sea turtles, and eagle rays.
The staffs were fantastic. We were assigned a representative when we checked in (Isha). She was extremely attentive, and did everything to make sure our stay was good.
We stayed in a beach villa, and the room is fantastic.
We had three complaints during our stay.
The first was the Island has a huge issue with mosquito and sand flies. I live in Florida, so I am no stranger to Mosquitos, I understand that when in the tropics you expect a certain amount of bugs, but based on other Islands I have visited. I believe the Hilton could have done a better job at knocking back Mosquitos. I also know that there is a treatment for sand flies, and it is very effective.
The next issue I had was the billing. Our holiday was a 20% discount on dining. 1800 HILTONS had informed me that the 20% discount applied at the Fluid restaurant, but when I received my bill they told me that was not the case. The Island had also not applied the discount on the main restaurant, and they had over charged me several times for the Mini bar. Although when I told them it was very, they were very good a setting it right. I did not keep a full tab on what I took from the Mini bar throughout the holiday. So I only asked them to remove what I knew for a fact I had not taken. E.g. Drinks I do not even drink. This probably left me with some overbilling on the soft drinks. I would suggest keeping your own tab, as it is difficult to compare after a 2 week vacation. Finally, the Dive school overcharged me, and it took over an hour to sort out.
Finally, my last complaint was the cleanliness of the room. The room itself looks clean, and the cleaner appeared to do a good job throughout our stay. But on the last day of our stay, we needed to pull the day bed out to get some kids toys they had fallen down the side. What we saw was pretty disgusting; the cleaner obviously never pulled the beds out. It was extremely dirty, and a number of dead roaches were under the bed. If my wife has seen this on the first day of our stay, she would have not stayed in the room. I took photos of this, but will not post on this forum.
In general I would recommend this hotel, and I will go back. Next time I visit I will stay in the water villas, as there is no mosquito issue off land. I will also make sure I take good documentation about discounts, and keep tab on Mini bar myself.

The Hilton lounge was really good after a long flight (24 hours travelling) and the staff were very helpful and friendly. After a short wait for the plane to be ready and the weather to clear we were taken to the sea plane for the final leg pf the journey.
The sea plane was great, seeing all islands and so many different shades of blue in the sea and was a great experience, even though I'm not keen on flying!
Once at the resort we were greeted by our host, Anhari, who was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Taken to our villa and told we were upgraded to a deluxe beach villa, which gave us a private cabana and we were put on the opposite side of the island to the water plane landing area so it was nice and peaceful.
The next two weeks were spent lying on a pure white beach, swimming in crystal clear water, surrounded by fish and enjoying the sun. Heaven!
The restaurants were great, really excellent food and great service, although on the pricey side it was worth it each time. Flavours restaurant was brilliant, sitting over the water and watching the sunset was very romantic.
Perfection for two whole weeks and would definitely recommend as a once in a lifetime trip!
Amazing HoneymoonWe stayed at Iru Fushi for 10 nights (and didnt get bored) at the beginning of September for our Honeymoon. From the moment we arrived and met our host...We stayed at Iru Fushi for 10 nights (and didnt get bored) at the beginning of September for our Honeymoon. From the moment we arrived and met our host Serena it was obvious that the staff were very friendly and only too happy to help in any possible way. We had a water villa with a jacuzzi 2nd from the end on the northern end of the island. The only thing about being at the end was there was more of a swell than closer to shore for snorkelling/swimming and further to walk to the main restuarant for breakfast than any other villas. The room was excellently presented and very spacious. The room was serviced more than once a day and was always stocked with fresh towels and drinking water. The island is exactly what you see in the pictures and the colours were nothing short of amazing. We developed a regular routine which meant that we generally interacted with the same staff everyday. Of special note were the team at Reflections including Rowan, Adam, Ali and Shewah whose service and hospitality were excellent and it was great to learn a little about their lives, families and aspirations. We ate at all 5 of the restaurants. In particular we had excellent dinners at Flavours and Trio. Bamboo was good too it just depends on what kind of food you like. The buffet we felt did not provide value for money and we preferred the other options. The wine is probably the one area where you felt like you didn't get value for money and it wasn't cheap to eat although there is a range provided. We went on a fishing trip (using a free voucher as a gift for honeymooners) one afternoon and were fortunate enough to catch a couple of fish which were then cooked up for lunch at the Islanders Grill for $25pp. We also went snorkelling and on a lucky dolphin spotting cruise and were both worth it. Even though there were plenty of guests at the Iru Fushi it was always quiet and provided an extremely relaxing atmosphere. The weather was around 30 degrees celcius everyday with a light breeze most days, with the odd still day and one day where a seemingly category 1 cyclone came in. We recommend the huts at Trio have a removable peak so the wind can get through them rather than losing the roof and causing damage (which did happen during our stay). Serena told us it was monsoon season so there was rain most afternoons or in the evening but it wasn't enough to be a problem and the resort provide rain jackets and umbrellas for protection. I also had a massage and facial at the spa which was very good and similar to the same service you get in Australia for the same price as higher end places. The gym is small but provides the main cardio and weights that you need. I did go down for water aerobics as per the activities sheet for the day only to find nobody there. If there weren't enough bookings then the activity didn't happen. This also occurred with early morning snorkelling and it would have been better if we were contacted/communicated with to advise us of this so we could make alternative arrangements rather than be waiting for a booking voucher to arrive in a mail box at the front of our villa.Read full review
