This holiday was a dream come true. Our trip to Maldives was supposed to be a once in a lifetime experience but we fell in love with Gangehi Island and I am sure we will re-visit this magical place.

A mostly Italian run resort, great views, clear water, not crowded, good dive school, great and enthusiastic Italian kitchen chef. Lovely snorkelling (reef sharks, turtles, rays, coral and the fish that come with that). Free canoes. I can't think of a bad thing at all. We had an over water villa. All in great condition.

This was our 5th trip to the Maldives - each time a different island. Each have their own special qualities - this time it was the position of our beach bungalow (no. 8) - it was without a doubt the best location on the island - very private and we had our own section of beach. The majority of the... More

This is my second visit to Maldives and I really liked the hotel. The rooms are a little worn out but they all have outstanding views of the ocean. The restaurant is also very good and I recommend full-board to benefit from lunch meals that have less people and different dishes. The hotel is certainly not the best 5 starts... More

Pros: - Non-management staff deliver great service (thanks Muzah, Seelan, Rafiqul, Venkatesan, Valerie) - The reef is great for snorkeling - Most food is of very high quality (though 1/3rd is not) - Manta trip was great Cons: - Too expensive. Everything is excl. service charge and taxes, even stuff that doesn't have any service. No complementary water, you have... More

We have been to the Maldives several times and usually try to stay on smaller islands. Gangehi definitely ticks this box. We actually went twice last year so I will cover both stays here.
