We spent two weeks in juli 2014 on this magnificent island with our two kids. We had a beach bungle (#213) which was located approximately 30 meters from the lagune beach and close to one of the restaurants and bars. We had a wonderful time, the people at the island have been very nice and friendly, the service was outstanding... More

We stayed on the resort from 1st-11th July. It was our honeymoon and a gift to us from our families. We travelled from Manchester with Turkish Airlines and had a stop in Istanbul. When we landed baggage reclaim was quick at the airport and we were directed to a booth, the man in the booth told us the speed boat... More

Our group of 8 friends (only men) went to this hotel from the 7th till the 10th of July for 3 nights. It was my 5th trip to the Maldives & I have always enjoyed the Maldives (my favourite destination for snorkeling) We stayed in 4 water villas on half board basis. The breakfast & dinner buffets were quite good... More

We added on a 5 day stay here on the back of our Sri Lanka trip as part of our honeymoon. We only booked this place 5days (half board) before we arrived and what a great risk it was! We're a well travelled couple, we have travelled around the world and have visited many beaches far and wide. My husband... More

I am writing this review while I am still in chaaya dhonveli resort. It is the best experience you will ever have. From the minute you land on there shore you are welcomed with the smile and politeness. I have been to many excursions but my best would be sunset fishing, maybe because I caught a big fish. I would... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 1 week at the end of May and had a great time. The weather was great, food was wonderful and the people incredibly friendly. We were picked up at the airport by speedboat and taken to the Island, took about 20min. There was a storm on the way and by the time we... More

This is the first time we have been to the Maldives and I can certainly say this was better than I could have imagined... The Island is sand covered, the moment you step off the speed boat the charm of the island takes you in.. We stayed in a water bungalow which was amazing!! very spacious, very large bed and... More

Parrot fish, trigger fish, pipe fish, angel fish,rays, loaches, eels, cuttle fish (wow!), black tipped reef sharks (double wow!!) etc etc, what more do I need to say. All seen snorkeling in the sheltered bay straight off the beach. Whilst I agree with ALL of the previous reviews, both good and bad, we were well prepared in advance for the... More

This place is great. We loved it and will be back and would happily recommend this place. The downside: The "All In" is more like full board. Your mini bar is charged, the beach bar is charged. Your not supposed to take drinks out of the main bar or restaurant. Tip the serving staff early and you will get better... More
