After a lengthy tour of Sri Lanka the transfer to this resort by seaplane was a complete contrast to days of travelling in jungle and dry areas, and a fantastic experience. Not only faster than by sea the views of the atolls and surrounding islands made the flight very special. A smooth transfer, then a boat to the island and... More

We spent two weeks on this island in November last year. It was every bit as good as dreamed. Excellent food, friendly staff, great diving and sea life. Saw more dolphins, sharks and rays than you can shake a stick at.

Chose this resort because of the house reef reports and we were not disappointed. We always take our own gear. Do wearable light weight wet- suit so you don't burn on our back in the hot sun , especially if you snorkel for hours as we do. This is the easiest snorkelling we have ever done, just 10 m from...

We stayed in water bungalow for a week and it was heavenly, everything we had hoped for!..I echo the comments of the previous couple of authors, both reports I can entirely corroborate, however, the overall package was fantastic. We had hoped for, great weather, great food, great sealife, peace & quiet and a perfect place for R&R and each box... More

Been before to Maldives at 5 star resorts. This is a true 4 star and although it needs some serious renovation, it feels good and we would definitely return. The beauty lies on the fact that the place is blessed by whoever created nature. It feels natural compared to all the other 5 star resorts. Can't beat that! So, nature... More

Our Superior villa 69 had a great stretch of beach and directly opposite exit 6 on the House Reef. Rooms are large, comftable and very clean. House... More

Part of the adventure was arriving by seaplane, something my wife and I had never experienced. We had also never been snorkeling and as in our late 60's this was quite an adventure in itself. We stayed in a water villa which was great although walking up and down the wooden walkway could prove tough - I must explain. Having... More

They know how to make a first impression, the staff who were there to receive us were very welcoming. Me and my husband, we stayed in a Water Villa overlooking the lagoon. We really enjoyed spending time on the Maldivian type swing. I would definitely consider coming back next or or so. We had such a great time and we... More
