Beautiful resort, exceptionally friendly staff (!), nice house reef for snorkelling, good buffet lunch and dinner, beautiful pool, great bungalow. Only small downside: Excursions will only take place as of a certain numer of participants and during our stay not many people have signed in. However, we did do the (very expensive) whale shark cruise and cannot recommend it -... More

This was our 6th trip to this lovely island and we were stunned by the change in style and general look. Before everything was natural wood and straw absolutely convenient for Maldives.
