The place was just awesome! We had the wooden villa with a beautiful view of the beach which was really amazing to wake up to. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The downside is it is very far from Male so expect longer travel time and changing flights.

We arrived at MALE International airport and we were said that the resort representative would be there to receive us which we didn't happen. This was the only concern we found with the resort. But, they guided us over the phone to proceed with our domestic flight from MALE to GAN Island. You just have to go to the domestic... More

The resort itself is wonderful. We found all of the staff very friendly, helpful and they did above and beyond to make our stay memorable. All our wishes were granted. Food was very tasty, with a good choice. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Housekeeping services were good and the room spotlessly clean with modern décor. The gardens are... More

If you are on a tight budget and just want to have the Maldives experience, this hotel is not bad. The buffet/food is ok, but since we are on full board only, drinks are to be purchased for lunch and dinner. For our group, we just take the bottled water supplied twice a day in our room. A 200 ml... More

The resort is very nice, but two-thirds of the resort are closed (the reason for this is unclear). This makes the whole resort calmer and the part that is open is very well maintained. There is only one restaurant and one bar open the whole day and one bar from about 10 am to 6 pm. We stayed in villa... More

The villas are fantastic! Spacious, huge beds, Balinese décor, wonderful views, outdoor-ish WC… The resort is 4.5km long (!) and the upside is that one always has a sense of privacy and relaxation, both in the rooms and on the beach. The whole environment is extremely nice, with lots of vegetation and palm trees. Surprisingly, mosquitoes, ants, bugs, etc, are... More

Please do not waste your precious time and money booking a stay at this resort. If you have already booked - CANCEL IT REGARDLESS OF CHARGE. Our experience was so bad we paid an extra £2700 ($4050) to get off the island and transfer to another... Our refund for stay is still being blocked by the Management of Herathera even... More
