We have been to the Maldives 8 or 9 times now and always try different islands. However after visiting Gangehi we hope to return there later this year. There are two reefs so close to the island with so many different types of fish and turtles. We swam from our room to the reef, snorkelled for an hour then swam... More

We stayed here For 6 nights and had a wonderful holiday. We had a beach Villa 15 which was excellent, we could step off our deck onto the sand (this was my dream) and snorkel to the reef, sit on our deck and watch the manterays black tipped sharks and appreciate the view. The staff were extremely helpful. Food was... More

If you have been to a warm water resort before you will not find huge differences at Gangehi. The upside is the dive enter and the Italian inspired food due to the origin of management. The bungalows are lovely inside though with very poor natural light which is being changed now. The dive center is nice and staff friendly but... More

Maldives is so breathtaking you end up giving at least 3 stars to any place you stay at anyway.... Gangehi however lives up to the hype completely. Rooms are luxurious and the beach and sandbank lagoon pristine with the bluest of blue waters. Buffet at the restaurant was also great, with each meal serving 15-20 delicious dishes cooked in different... More

Service I was very upset on the night before departure. Earlier I asked for an early seaplane flight before 12 noon, and the staff promised to arrange with the seaplane company. However, I was still given a 1545 flight and told to check out at 11 am. I went to the reception but no one knew anything about my request.... More

Thanks for posting your review based on your recent stay with us. On the day before your departure you requested for an earlier flight around 10-12 AM. The receptionist replied you that we would have sent a request to TMA (the seaplane company) because the transfer has been already arranged considering the international flight timings. For last minute amendments, indeed,... More

Blue clear waters, lots of snorkelling, pretty small island.. What else do we need to perfectly relax? The sand bank here is so long and so pretty.

Very nice Hotel, good service, very clean island and nice riff to dive or snorkle. Water is very clear and the beach is lovely. Very good restaurant but should imporve in the service personal. Sometimes slowly and do not pay so much attention.
