The best thing about this place is the beach and the house reef. The beach is just outside your door and it is all white sand, azure water and a long stretch of reef with lots of different fish to see. Beware of the current though, it can be quite strong and better to use fins. The island itself is... More

Two friends and I went to the Maldives on our February break. It was a great week. The accommodations, while sparse, were comfortable. No TVs and wifi could be patchy. The food was great...no repeats the entire week. However, the limited I times made it seem a little like camp. The water was beautiful, and the weather was awesome. Overall,... More

For the 4th time been there. Again excellent. A very special relaxing atmosphere, very nice staff, food is very nice (thank you chief!). Every day they organize nice boattrips for fishing, safari (whale-sharks, Manta's and turtles) and other things. The sunset is marvelous. The house-riff is very special and only 20 meters from shore. A great place to forget all... More

Had the most fantastic, relaxing holiday here at the beginning of November. The island is pure bliss. All the staff are amazing, very polite and friendly. The rooms are great, cleaned twice a day with clean beach towels and the bed turned down differently every night. If you like to snorkel, this is the place to be. The sealife is... More
