My husband & I are seasoned travellers to the Maldives, we've been 15 times over the years, and have seen the prices rise, and the islands get more luxourious. This is not always a good thing, so when looking to go we try & find the islands that are still a true Maldivian destination. We certainly found this with Gangehi,... More

We have just spent 14 amazing nights on this beautiful island. I truly didn't want to leave and could easily have stayed for another two weeks! The Island is beautiful, the people are fantastic and the food is truly delicious. We stayed in a deluxe over water villa - definitely worth the extra money and where beach villa's were having...

it really is as good as everyone says. We'd visited the Maldives 15 years ago for our honeymoon and decided to go back. We chose this island because it was small and sounded friendly. 15 years ago we had a great time but was disappointed by the food. Not this time. Matteo and Davida - the 2 main Italian chefs...

The first thing that you have to realise about Gangehi is that it is an Italian resort. For 30 years it has been just Italians who have been visiting but they opened it up to British (and other) visitors in September 2011. For the first couple of days, the overwhelming "Italianess" of it is a bit disconcerting, especially when you... More

We had a nightmare journey to the Maldives, with cancelled flights etc. I was in tears and knackered by the time we arrived and was wishing we had cancelled the holiday. After sitting for five mins with a welcome drink, the staff instantly made me smile. The staff took us to our amazing deluxe water villa (I would recommend paying... More

Sat in a rather dreary Heathrow hotel, Gangehi seems a million miles away. I've just returned from the best holiday I've ever had. The island is beautiful and the attention to detail is second to none. We were treated like royalty as soon as we stepped off the sea plane. We stayed in a deluxe water bungalow which was just...

Spacious, comfortable rooms. Great, mainly Italian food. There is always fish, meat, plenty of vegetables, salad, fruit. The staff are friendly and helpful. The Island is beautiful, green and peaceful, the reef is varied and well populated. We saw Dolphins, Manta, turtles, Eagle rays, Stingrays, sharks on the house reef. We were able to relax in peace, though there are... More

It is even better than as it looks in the pictures. Staff: very nice and friendly Food: very very good (good qualty and very tasty) Room: spacious modern... More

Wir hatten das Glück zwei wunderschöne,ruhige und erholsame Wochen auf Gangehi zu erleben.Dies war unser 4-ter Malediven Besuch. Insel: Die Insel hat durch ihre "kleine" Grösse einen enormen Charme und Flair und ist stets sehr geplegt. Das Personal ist sehr,sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, ja sogar herzlich, ohne dabei aufdringlich zu wirken. Küche/ Essen: Die Küche war einfach fabulös. Geschmachklich eine... More

Nice little Island for a relaxed holiday. Most guests are from Italy and therefore most people on the Island speak better Italian than English.
