Does anyone know what the policy is for smoking in the accommodation?

Hi Phil C

There is no policy it varies from island to island it generally favours smokers

whilst I don't agree that it favours smokers as it is changing to more like the uk/ us rules , but it does depend on each island.

Eg vilamendhoo has no smoking indoors at all ie your villa, inside the bars n resturants but in the open air areas you are permitted.

Which resort are you going to? It varies from island to island as previous posters have said.

We were on Angaga last year and were surprised to find that smoking was allowed in the restaurant. This was the first island where we had come across this policy. Every where else as been non-smoking.

I did email the General Manager after our visit and comment on this smoking policy. He said he would look into it. I have checked some recent reviews and no-one is mentioning smoking in the restaurant so perhaps it has been sorted?
