Recently returned from two weeks of total relaxation. Even though the hotel was quiet with seven of us the first week and fourteen the second the service and choice of food in the dining room was very good in fact sometimes it was difficult to decide which of the excellent dishes to opt for. The drinks on the all inclusive... More

Just returned from Eqautor village on GAN Island where we had an amazing two weeks even tho there was only six of us in whole complex it didn't detract from the service we were given. The food was very varied and enjoyable and they tried to cater for all nationalities if not chef understood what you wanted and if they... More

OK, lets be clear, it's a resort. Not a guesthouse run by locals. It's a resort but on the chill, downplayed side, not a hipster show-off place. It's not the best for children but our 4 year old is a charm if she gets to swim all day and watch a few cartoons she's down for it. Nothing else for... More

My husband and I stayed at the Equator Village for two weeks in June 2015. I simply cannot fault the place. The rooms are large and airy, the aircon works brilliantly (and quietly), the bed is 6' wide, there is a safe in the wardrobe, there are two suitcase racks, a table and two chairs, wardrobe, dressing table and lights...

We had a great time here over Xmas 2007/08. Equator Village is well run and provides very good value for money. If you want over water bungalows go elsewhere. If you want the cheapest means of staying near the equator with the best diving in the world a 30 minute boat ride away and the ability to interact with real... More

I spent 9 months on the island in 1972 whilst in the RAF. the island has changed a bit since the Air Force pulled out in 1976. The hotel is actually the old Senior Ranks Mess. it has been updated and is quite modern. Air Conditioned rooms and quite spacious with wet room and toilet facilities. All rooms are just... More

Gan Island has an interesting history in that it was a British navy and air force base from 1912 to 1974, and played an important role during WW II. Obviously, the natives were forcibly ‘relocated’ but the creation and operation of the base did result in good infrastructure for Gan (and Addu), the airport with the long runway being one.... More

We stayed here for a few days earlier in the month and enjoyed the stay. When we first got in touch the replies were quick and filled with information. We had them book our flights and they then met us at the airport (just down the road). The room was comfortable, clean and basic, but you didn't spend too much... More
