Just came back from a week in the paradise, we stayed in a water villa the room is massive and really beautiful and clean. The journey from london is quite far as you need to wait to take another internal flight from Male, we had to wait 3.5hrs in male which makes the whole trip really long, so check the timings before bookibg the flight. But once you get there you will forget about all these as the island is absolutely stunning. We really enjoy riding our bike round the island, it is a relatively large resort so facilities are really good and you won't get bored at all - There is an activity schedule also for snokelling trips, yoga, discovery scuba etc. Service :top notch, really friendly staff who always smile and tries to help. Food:we went for b&b. dr ali is nice, but we mostly have dinner at jaavu as they have bbq seafood n steak most nights, we paid around £70pp per dinner but its good quality so its not too bad. Activities: There are quite a lot to do tennis, badminton, yoga, good gym (thee is also a nice spa area they call it changing room opposite to the gym its a really nice quiet area with steam/sauna/jacuzzi), their spa offer really amazing massages (they really listen and care. I also had the most amazing ginger tea at the spa! They are so nice to give me the recipe when I left. Then of cos there is a water sports centre but very expensive, 15 mins ride on the seabob is USD90. Diving is great! Their instructors are very knowledgeable and make sure we had fun. Quite a lot of dive sites in this atoll but you might need to be certified to go deep enough to see rays. Overall this is an excellent resort on a very stunning location, everything is top quality. Its not cheap but we both feel that it all worth it! The resort is about 75% full when we were there but apart from breakfast when its more busy you won't feel that at all. We actually felt there might be more staff than guests, We never had to wait to do any activities.
