We've been here from 17th to 25th of August. The place is amazing. The island is great, absolute intimacy combined with the chance to socialize, as you may prefer. The structure is wonderful, anything is extremely cured. The food is excellent, with a great variety, for any kind of taste, from boiled vegetables and steam rice, to indian chinese, thai,... More

Although this is not the most luxurious island on the Maldives, you can find here everything what Maldives are famous for - reasonably priced. The resort grounds are beautiful and well kept. The wooden cottages fancy enough to feel a bit spoiled (e.g. shower under the sky) situated on a paradise beach just steps from a beautiful sea. This is... More

What an amazing resort! super friendly and helpful staff, couldn't find a single point of improvement. If there was only a possibility to kill every mosquito on the island it would be 100% perfect. (they got me at least 20 times in a 3-days period....) so you might need to bring a descent mosquito repellent for the morning / evenings.

Both my wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary this year so we decided that we needed a special holiday. We book the Royal Island Resort and Spa as an idealic venue and we were not disappointed. You are met by beautiful white sands and cyan coloured sea. The staff are very polite and extremely helpful, your are made... More

Getting there from the UK takes 3 flights and a boat ride, so be prepared but once you get there, it's as you would imagine it to be, absolutely beautiful. We flew Emirates on an A380 from Heathrow to Dubai, it then takes a 30 minute walk (yes 30 minutes and we don't walk slow) to get to the gate... More

Food absolutely amazing as were the staff. Such wonderful people. Petals on our bed most days. Rooms clean, really clean. Had the most amazing holiday ever. Lots of water sports and diving on site with a very experienced dive crew. Entertainment in the evening was very good. The island itself was absolutely beautiful and I saw as much snorkelling as...
