Beach cottage was awesome. View was spectacular. Swim from beach of cottage to snorkel. Very quite. No insects. Saw ells, many varieties of coral, fish, and anemones. Food was great. If bringing US currency, hundreds or twenties must have the new bill markings or they will not exchange them for Euros. Just a fabulous place to snorkel. Diving would be... More

I'm currently working in Chennai, India so figured I'd come check this place out...its only a two hour flight and the cost wasn't going to break the bank....and I was already about to go nuts being in India for almost two months.

We stayed there for 4 days in february. It is a beautiful little island resort. Well-managed, they have many weekly scheduled activities. Our favorite were the snorkeling trips with the marine biologist. The abr is a great place to hang out if your room doesn't have a good view. Tips: Definitely go for the all-inclusive package. Be aware that you... More

My primary reason for choosing Gangehi was the fact that it could require a seaplane to get there, which is something I've never tried in Maldives. Also, we wanted to make sure it wouldn’t take too long a time to get there so it Gangehi was just perfect (40 minutes by seaplane). It is important though to take note of... More
