My wife and I spent an idyllic eight nights here; we wanted somewhere where we could totally unwind, that was unfussy and uncomplicated, without the regimentation of a hotel.
We were particularly attracted by the over water villas as we enjoy being around the sea. Even though we were slightly apprehensive about the weather in late October, our fears were unfounded and our high expectations were fulfilled. The quality of service was particularly noteworthy, with Gasim our Man Friday at hand whenever we needed him.
The privacy, the Spa and the spaciousness of the villa were all first rate. We were also concerned that Gili's location might be too near Male but this was unfounded. The occasional seaplane and passing boat did not bother us. All in all a memorable holiday - we will definitely return!
