This place we chose after extensive research from tripadvisor forums. We initially booked for 2 deluxe rooms with only breakfast inclusive but later on found that it's better to take the all inclusive option as that dear friends ( believe or not) includes all meals and unlimited alcohol at all their bars including the pool bar and pub. The pool... More

Just returned from Holiday island few days back and would want to say that it is really a honeymooners paradise. Got a bit late due to the location but once we reached the spot it was absolute bliss. Empty Beaches, light music, white sand, what else can one ask for. Advantage is you can always hop in another resort called... More

We stayed at Holiday Island for a week and it was so relaxing. After reading all the trip advisor reviews I was totally surprised with the rooms as some people had said they were a bit tired (yes they are) but they were still very clean, comfortable and spacious. The bungalows are situated directly on the beach and the beach... More

We chose this resort for the first week of our honeymoon. It is one of the smaller, more unspoilt and under developed islands in the Maldives and it is for this reason it owes a lot of it's charm. You can walk around the whole thing in about 40 minutes. There is one tiny ugly industrial dock part of it... More

We stayed for two weeks half board and didn't regret the decision at all. The room we stayed in (116) was ideal if you are there to dive - halfway between dive centre and restaurant on the jetty side of the island (not facing Maamgili airport which was not busy). The room was a little tired and could do with... More

Excellent value for money, helpful and friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Rooms were a little basic but still fantastic value for money. Recommend for a good relaxing break that does not cost the earth. Also recommended is the dive centre on the island - very professional and lots to see. We will definately be coming back.
