What a fantastic and relaxing holiday location. We stayed in a beach bungalow for ten days, when the tide comes in its only 5 meters from your patio door, great to wake up to. You are allocated a table at the restaurant when you first arrive and you keep this for the duration of your holiday, ours was situated at... More

We stayed here for two weeks for a holiday in 2010, and still talk about it today. It's exactly what you would expect when you imagine the Maldives - clear waters, white sandy beaches, beautiful coral and sea-life. Perfect for a relaxing getaway with your loved one. The food was brilliant - it was nice to have your own allocated... More

We went here for my husbands Special Birthday , it certainly was special ! The welcome reception by rep at airport, incredible view at the airport of the ocean & a room upgrade to overwater suite, will certainly take a lot of beating. It really was a fantastic start to our holiday. Boat transfer was great, room wasn't quite ready... More

My wife and I had been wanting to visit the Maldives and we decided to make the trip for our first anniversary. We are living in Singapore, so it is easy to take a 3-4 day getaway. We have heard so much about the Maldives and really wanted to stay in one of the overwater beach bungalows. We picked Chaaya... More

We spent our honeymoon here on 28th August - 8th September (10 nights). We were originally booked into the water bungalow but upgraded to the over water suite which was very much worth it - very spacious, clean and private. The grounds are kept immaculate. The staff are all very polite and the food is incredible with the amount of... More

Me and my wife have recently came back from 10 days here on our honeymoon. We couldn't have asked for a more serene place. white sand, turquoise sea, and blue skies.....The Island itself is postcard like and despite it raining for 2 days, that did not prevent any of the fun and relaxation. The hotel staff are extremely friendly, the... More
