This place is totally stunning. The pictures in the brochures just don't do the place justice. We arrived on the 27th Feb to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, and from the moment we exited the sea plane we were made to feel special.
Nothing is to much trouble for the staff from your room boy right up to the general manager. Special mention to Hassan in the restaurant and Naseef and Manju in the bar.
Everything is spotlessly clean, the sandy beaches are perfect, the infinity pool is just amazing.
We went for the complimentary spa treatment which was so good we had to go back. I can recommend the hot stone and oriental massage.
The food in the buffet restaurant is fantastic and the variety is great. Be prepared to put on a few pounds unless you observe self control. We had a moonlight dinner on the beach, just perfect. I offered compliments to the chef and he came out to greet us, I fully expected to see Marco Pierre White, the food was so good.
Can't wait to return, we are already looking at booking for 2015.
