We used a travel agent from Trivandrum to book our flights and stay at Maldives. They overcharged us for a 4 star hotel that had a rat in the bathroom. They moved us to their sister location called the Paradise island hotel. This hotel was more like a 4 star hotel. What would you rate a hotel that had a... More

We went to this little small island to celebrate birthday. The cheapest yet exclusive island compare to other luxury hotels. We land main airport then get transferred to internal flight which takes 20minutes to reach the island. If i would to visit again next time, i would like to choose transfer by way of speed boat because the internal flight... More

We had bungalow 160, it is the best side of island to stay (136-169), stunning views on the beach, calm ocean. Room was spacious, clean, but old.. TV, kettle, tea, coffee, AC (noisy), exterior shower (great), terace with table + 2 chairs.... More

It was a wonderful experience. My kids really enjoyed alot. Island is small. It was a relaxing vacation. Food was tasty. I like Maldivian biryani.staff was good. There is little issue about no Muslim shower in the bathroom. But overall it was good pay of money.although we visited neighboring islands they have more facilities like pool but this island is...

Clean, comfortable, with very friendly staff. Dive center and spa superb. Avail yourself of both. Half board a must as there is little option beyond the main dining room. We finally figured out that splitting an entree for lunch in the coffee shop is the way to go. Found the island very quiet as bar prices for non "all-inclusive" was... More

The place is quite and privacy guaranteed, also the some good activities can be done like snorkeling, taking a boat to sun island, GYM, tennis table, tennis, babyfoot and some good entertainment by the bar at night, so it was quite but not boarding. The food is... More

We have had the most wonderful time here on holiday island. Apparently this is a 'budget' island, but our experience has been nothing like that. The rooms are private chalets, just metres from beach. The food is good, the menu changes enough each day. The bar is well stocked and the beach bar has amazing sunsets. The spa is definitely... More

Very nice hotel if you want to spend some alone time with your partner. The bungalows are clean and bathroom is big. Each bungalow has its own sunbed. You can book some daily excursions in the reception or go every three hours with a free boat to the nearby sister island & hotel - Sun Island Hotel. Staff is nice... More
