I have just returned from Chaaya Island Dhonveli, and I do not have a bad word to say about the resort, I went for 2 weeks and it is the most chilled I have every been (must have been, I read 14 books whilst I was there). I stayed in a beach bungalow number 227, you step out of your room and it is literally 7 steps to the sea. I read on a previous review that there was a lack of sunbeds I didn't see this at all, each bungalow has 4 beds, 2 typical to sunbathe 2 you can pull into the sea and cool off there.
The resort is mostly English and Italians, the Italians aren't loud they are just enjoying themselves, everyone was really friendly.
The staff could not do enough for you & the food was excellent, everyone is happy and extremely friendly.
I would recommend this resort to anyone, take wet shoes for going in and out of the sea as there is a lot of coral.
I would recommend the beach bungalow rooms, as soon as you open the door when you first arrive go and pull the blinds you are taken aback by the views, I will never get over the colour of the sea.
Sammy the rep was fantastic, a great sense of humour, there when you wanted her, but not pushy as some reps, unfortunately she is leaving to pastures new in 2 weeks.
All in all if you are wondering about the resort don't, just book it.
