Positives,Beautiful resort, great staff, helpful staff, clean room, good food. Negatives, if you don't book all inclusive it's very expensive, people go there for the ocean but all activities are extremely expensive. Needs cooling in restaurants and reception or you will spend your night out squeezing your shirt as the AC is only in the toilet? No nurse on site... More

I have been lucky enough to stay 4 Maldivian resorts in the last year, and while this resort certainly did not cost as much as the others, it was still extremely nice. I loved the larger island, the clean sizable rooms and most of all how friendly the staff were. I spoke to everyone I met from the cooks and... More

We stayed over christmas 2014. The arrival and pick up and transfer from Male was unremarkable and there were no major issues. We arrived early at 2 AM and were forced to settle all bills on arrival. It was like a school trip and we were treated like children and made to pay immediately despite having had a very long... More

The stay was excellent. We enjoyed the villas, the food, the kindness of the staff and the location. We particularly appreciated the opportunity to exercise through bicycle rides, large swimming pools, long walks on the beach and the village tours. May was an excellent choice as the resort is not full, so we enjoyed the tranquility of the place. Liked... More
