Had spent 4 nights at this resort in Feb 2015... The resort is nice... Very cozy rooms which directly open onto the beach... The room was clean with all the necessary facilities except Wi-Fi which was available only at the main bar.... The food was ok... Not much variation... The resort has badminton, tennis, table tennis, gym, volley ball and... More

This island is both welcoming and amazingly beautiful! The views from the main bar are spectacular with turquoise waters and a very safe lagoon right in front of you. There is also a beach bar at the end of the island, perfect to watch the sun go down! The food was really scrummy at Christmas with a marvellous array of... More

I'm sorry but I did not like. would not recommend it and I think that surely in a place as beautiful as the Maldives there are better facilities. not good. the sea is beautiful and the food is good but I was fine with the organization of staff.

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

TV, kettle, tea, coffee, AC (noisy), exterior shower (great), terace with table + 2 chairs.... More
