Just as you see in pictures of the Maldives, this is a little taste of paradise.
We stayed from the 23rd of Sept through to the 1st of Oct in a Deluxe Water Villa (No. 324). Our flight had been delayed and we arrived quite late on Monday night. We were greeted by such friendly helpful people that we started to relax the moment we arrived.
Waking up to the stunning blue of the crystal clear water was something that took a bit of getting use to. While we were there we tried all of the restaurants and found them all to be excellent. The food quality and sevice were of a very high standard.
The Viu bar became one of our favourite places, with fish feeding and the best view for the stunning sunsets. The staff at the bar (like the rest of the resort) were so helpful and were quick to offer another drink or afternoon tea.
We found the resort to be quiet, which was what we looking for. Each day we spent a lot of time snorkelling around our villa, which had an abundance of fish just underneath it. A little further on the other side of the jetty is a reef full of exciting sea life. We took cameras that you can use underwater and had a great time taking photos. The water is not too deep and there are sandy areas where you can stand. Snorkel, goggle and flipper hire is free. You might like to bring some extra sunburn cream and if you get burnt along the parting in your hair a cap or scarf to wear in the water. I bought a bandanna from the shop once I noticed my part turning pink and it saved me from further burning.
The resort offers a range of daily activities. We tried the meditation class and really enjoyed it. There was also options of visiting other islands or diving trips, but we were very comfortable without heading out from the island.
The Oceans Restaurant is the main restaurant with no bookings required. Its staff and quality of food are excellent. One of the waiters, Ali got to know us and knew how we took our tea and coffee first thing in the morning.
The staff made every effort to help us feel welcome and that they wanted to please us. It was just the holiday that my husband and I needed to unwind and relax.
