My family loved the resort. We enjoyed every minute of our Easter break. It felt like paradise, our own water villa on a lovely island. From the minute we arrived at Male airport we were very well looked after, my two little girls received a lovely soft turtle toy with their names embroidered onto the toy, we then waited in the executive lounge where we could have any refreshments. We were then escorted to our Gan flight, once arriving into Gan we briefly waited in the shangrli-la's beautiful lounge for the speed boat transfer.
Arriving at the hotel was great, we had a lovely fresh coconut from the island with coconut milk inside and beautiful flowers for the girls and myself. We were taken straight to our room, we booked a water villa, which was brilliant. The girls then got a lovely turtle necklace from the arriving room host.
The water villa had a nice view of the sea and the resort, the villa had everything you needed tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water, mini bar, dvd/cd player, i pod speaker, plenty toiletries, including sun lotion, hair bands etc. I loved the bath in the bathroom and my husband enjoyed having an outside shower. The whole family loved being so close to the water, we sat on our decking and watched the turtles swimming, although we found there wasn't much fish life to see. My eldest daughter and husband went snorkelling in a different part of the island to see the fish. You can dine and sunbath on your decking of the villa. We were given bikes so that we could cycle around the island which my children thought was great. We cycled all around the island and to breakfast every day. You could also call for a buggy if you didn't want to cycle.
Our room host, George was amazing he catered for our every need and made our holiday very special.
We dined at Javvu for breakfast and dinner and dinner at Dr Ali's. the food and service was wonderful. The service around the island was exceptional !! On our last evening we had in-room-dining which was lovely, we had our table on the decking set and the food served. It was really nice but my husbands portion was quite small of the fish and chips but it didn't spoil our evening. We then went to M Lounge for a cocktail.
My two daughters went to the cool zone for children, they did easter activities and took part in the easter fashion show at M lounge. We had a glass of champagne whilst watching.
We all had a wonderful time and was sad to leave, the resort is fantastic and the staff were great. We were looked after from the minute we arrived to the minute we left at Gan airport.
I would really recommend the water villa's.
We all want to return :)
