Picking the right island in the Maldives is really important. The resorts are all a bit different so make sure you pick one that suits your need.
If you want to visit the Maldives because of their natural beauty, you will love Angaga. Very comfortable bungalows, great food and one of the most beautiful lagoons in the country. We decided against staying at a luxury resort because luxury uses a lot of resources so the more stars the resort has, the farther away you get from “natural”. And really, who needs a swimming pool if you have one of the world’s best beaches right in front of your bungalow.
WiFi is available in the lobby but a bit expensive. It’s worth picking up a local SIM card at the airport. Dhiraagu has a reliable network on Angaga.
We had half-board and since both breakfast and dinner are buffet-style you can easily skip lunch. For the fact that most of the food has to be imported, they really offer a great choice.
We had the chance to stay at an overwater bungalow for the first night. They feel quite a bit brighter and more airy than the regular bungalows. So if the price difference isn’t too much, it might be well worth it.
