The best to chill and forget the rest of the world. The place has many fun filled activities can be done in this island and food is also great. But part of the island is the calm beach and sea facing room. They are just simply brilliant.

Dear Amalasok, Thank you so much for your favourable review. We really appreciate you mentioning the beach as we are one of the very few islands in the Maldives where guests can walk 360 degrees around the island in soft sand. I will pass on your kind words to the team who are continually motivated when they receive positive feedback.... More

Everything was amazing.. the privacy & scenery of the beautiful sunset water villa, the quality and variety of restaurants, the dolphin cruise, the Maldivian cooking class, the wine tasting, the generous hospitality (even more so once they knew we were honeymooners).

We had the perfect time there.. Biggest tragedy that happened was we lost our money and cards before arriving to the resort .. The staff was so wonderful to help us out in the situation and continued our visit only with few verifications on the card we submitted earlier..
