We had a water bungalow and it was very clean. The room was very big and had a big glass window in the floor to watch the fished. Which is very impressive in the night, when the underwater light is on. The way from the water bungalow back to the restaurant is about 300 Meters so it´s a bit long but as the scenery is very nice, it was ok. The hotel is new, about 2 years and it seems that the water is treating the aisle badly as you can see some erosions. The food in the hotel was really nice and they had a big and daily changing offer. They do also have a big gourmet restaurant but as the normal restaurant offered really nice food, it seemed noone used the gourmet one. We spent our honeymoon on the island and we hoped that it wold be quite and even though there were some children, it was just perfect for us. The people there are many honeymooners from Germany and Asia (Japan, Korea and China) but also couples that wanted to have a balanced holiday between quite quality time and fun. The entertainers were excellent and special thanks to Viraj who alway put a smile on everyone´s face who saw him. They were not too pushy and left you alone but that was the key to success and the atmosphere was great even when the weather was rainy. As discribed, we had a water bungalow and the size was huge, it had about 30-40sqm. When the weather is nice, the waterbungalows are great even thoug the walk to the restaurant is quite a bit. When the weather is bad, it is a bit scary being on the water as the bungalows move slightly. There is television with about 20 channels (all English and Asian). We always had fresh water, coffee and tee for free on the rooms. There is also a huge balcony with a jacuzy on it and places to ly.The main room is air conditioned, it has also a safe and a fridge but you have to buy the things first. Of course also a telephone. When it rained, water came into the bungalow which is why I deducted some points. At the raining days our bathroom was completely wet. The staff was alway very friendly and very human, which means they also spoke privately and it seemed they indeed had fun at what they were doing. I want to thank again Viraj the entertainer who everybody loved. The guy is really crazy and has a great sense of "Schadenfreunde" (sorry, there is no word describing that in english). I have never seen anyone who made shy people waking up and playing Volleyball etc. All the other staff was the same, they were always approachable. Great job! Whenever you buy something there are 10% tipp on the receipt. For the very good staff, we spent some more money as we thought they did an extraordinary job. The food was alway great and they changed it daily. The fish was always fresh and they also offered the normal German things like Nutella etc. The gourmet restaurant is excellent but it is not necessary to go there. If you want to have a romantic dinner for two then this is the place to be. The prices are ok for the quality of the restaurant. When you buy something there are 10% tipping included. The island is very small, it takes about 15-20 Minutes to walk around it. The beaches are just great and very clean, I never saw any dirt or trash lying around. Even though the island is that small, they managed to put 400 people on that island (about 200 guests and about 200 staff). From the water bungalows you can directly enter the ocean which is very handy. It´s just great for snorkeling and diving because the reef is just at the bungalow. There is a small shop on the area that fill the basic needs. But normally you don´t need many things. The travel to the island is very exhausting, from Germany it is a plane from Frankfurt to Male, from Male with another plane to Kadhdhoo (flight about 1 hour), from there with the speed boat to the island (speed boat about 25 Minutes). The excursion possibilities are reduced to the ones from Robinson. Everything else is very expensive. But even 2 weeks are very ok as the program and the people make you feel great. They have a gib water sport offering but windsurfing, Kite surfing and Katamaran boating is not often possible as there is not enough wind. It´s perfect for snorekling and diving. I did not see any rescue swimmers. Diving is also possible for people without diving license and the diving station there has a very good reputation (Rudi). There is Beachvolleyball, Cross Golf accross the beach (which is no sport but very funny and due to the heat very exhausting). They also offer almost every night a progam after dinner. They don´t push you to attend but many people took the opportunity. On the rooms you have free internet access but the donwload rate is very bad.
