Wonderful location. The Maldives are a truly unique set of atolls. The hotel property is build on both sides. One side has the quiet waters of the inside of the atoll and the other side had the full force of crashing Indian Ocean waves. The weather is perfect- always warm but not oppressively hot. The were short little rains that... More

Not much more can be said that hasn't already been mentioned by other reviewers. Shangri-la hotels are known for the wonderful service they provide and this one didn't disappoint.
