Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Monalisa in the beach bar with her smiles and attention. Harinder in Kandooma Cafe was very professional and always aware of anyone needing anything. Matziya in the gift shop is sweet and funny. Shartee? Very generous. The people help make this place paradise.

Our group planned a vacation in Maldives and we booked 7 rooms at the resort. We had a terrific stay at the hotel. Resort is very serene, with lots of activities. Room was nice, so was the food in general (Kandooma cafe and The Kitchens is a must try). Mr. Siva and Bandula go out of the way to make... More

Beautiful hotel with friendly and attentive staff! The grounds are well maintained and very clean! There are a lot of excursions and food options to choose from, but I suggest ordering ala carte rather than buffet. Your wallet will thank you!

I would definitely avoid coming here again in the rainy season (we had 2 good days and 3 awful days) as this REALLY puts a damper on the whole feeling of the resort, remember you are basically trapped on a tiny...
