Me and my partner stayed for 2 weeks in the last week of February and 1st week March 2014. . Upon arrival by speedboat, approx 25-30 mins from Male airport, we were quickly checked in and shown to our over-water suite. The suites are very spacious with fantastic view over the India Ocean. We stayed in 723 which also gave... More

We arrived by speedboat from Male , only took about 30 mins and were greeted at reception by the hotel guest liaison Kelly, check in was quick and easy , after signing a few forms we were escorted to...

We arrived at Chaaya Island Dhonveli by speedboat and were warmly welcomed with hot towels and a cocktail. We stayed in an over water suite which was beautiful with an amazing view. This was a perfect location for our honeymoon as we had so much privacy and peace and quiet. We definately recommend booking all inclusive as the island is... More

10 day stay in a water bungalow (Room no 824) from 25th October 2014. I would recommend this to anyone! The location is simply stunning, the accommodation was great and the staff are about as lovely as it gets. Nothing is too much trouble and the chefs and waiting/ bar staff are awesome. The food was exquisite and the all... More

First time in the Maldives so I cannot compare to other islands. We stayed in an overwater suite which we upgraded to once at the resort. So glad we did it was absolutely beautiful and I spent most of my days sunbathing on my own private deck looking out onto the sea perfect. The only disappointing thing about the room... More

Stayed here from October 30 to November 3. After a 30 minute wait at the airport, hopped on to the hotel speed boat, from where it was a 20 minute ride to the hotel. Check-in was efficient; the hotel gave us a water bungalow (830) from amongst the ones we had requested for (824-830). the water bungalow is pretty spacious...big... More

No hotel is 100% perfect. What is liked by one can be disliked by another. Cost is also a consideration. Having visited 10 islands this is our scoring of this resort. Maakana Restaurant : Food served by the restaurant for water bungalows 10 out of 10. Fresh cooked meals with themed dishes thru out the week. This made this hotel... More

First part was the bad part, flying via Istanbul with Turkish Airways. First 4 hour flight was Ok but the second 8 hour flight was awful with little leg space and if like us you have the person in front put their seat back, then you have no room at all, the food on the plane is worth avoiding. My... More

We had a wonderful stay here. Mr Anthony Fernando, Assistant Front Office Manager went over and above the call of duty to ensure our stay was excellent. The restaurant staff were great and tailormade Sri Lankan breakfasts for us. Apart from an issue with Vijitha from the laundry team who lost one of our trousers and denied this despite photographic... More
