For our first time at the Maldives we chose this tiny, beautiful island, ideal for couples for total relax. I loved that it's like the typical postcard island you can walk around in 15 mins and without much animation or noise. Just beautiful, with a fantastic strip of white sand going into the middle of the sea for at least... More

Great team here, it is a small hotel and you get to know the staff well. It is more rustic than super-luxury but that's its charm and it was better value than some of the big brand 5 star hotels in the Maldives. We felt very welcome at all times. We were in villa 4 which was on a small... More

This is what we all dream about,- paradise on a tiny island out in the sea. Lazy life, bathing both in the sea as in the sun. The sea is like a aquarium,- full of fish and life. If you can afford it, rent a cabin out in the sea on the beach. If you can`t afford it, it`s very... More

We asked for no 10-14 after seeing somebody elses review on here, as it is far enough away from reception, bar and sea plane jetty. The villa was amazing, huge bed, air con and... More

The island is fantastic and relaxing; really gorgeous but if traveling with family like us, should come prepared. Even bottled water on first day of check out is not free. Everything comes with an extra cost (read; expensive plus government tax plus city tax plus service charge.) Some of the staff are really friendly and accommodating; others depends on their... More

By the far the most expensive place I have ever stayed in in all my years of travelling but worth it. Was there coz I was searching for a place that costs below S$100 per night and this was the only place that came up. Even though it was slightly more than $100. But seeing the photos I was hooked!...

We booked this resort for our 2nd year anniversary simply because the island looks cute and small.. We believe that it'll be quite underrated. So yes indeed it is underrated! We tried 3 different rooms. 1. Deluxe overwater villa is our absolute favourite - interior Is minimalist but classic. 2. Standard overwater villa - our least favourite, lack of privacy... More
