“best honeymoon ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

This was our first time in Maldives, and we book the hotel trough Virgin Holidays. We must say we were so lucky, the resort was exactly what we were looking for: peaceful, relaxing and friendly. The staff were extremely kind and helpful and were always trying to make you feel comfortable. For us the snorkelling experience was the most exciting one. Each day Latif took us to a different part of the house reef so we could see all kind of marine fauna.
We also strongly recommend to have a massage the day before leaving. The spa has so many options you will not know what to choose.
The only thing we didn't enjoyed that much was the night entertainment. But this was not important as you always can enjoy a nice walk across the island or just lay down on the beach swings and look at the stars. This could sound cheesy but it is incredibly plesant. We will definitely come back

This was meant to be a one-off dream trip but we will certainly come here again. I can only endorse every review about the Seaplane, welcome, villa, staff, food, scenery, friendliness, peacefulness, free snorkelling trip etc etc
We had asked for a villa above 150 but were given 115. I did remind Raj(?) about the request and within 5 minutes, we were in 157! Every villa is wonderful though.
The best example of friendliness were the ladies cleaning the paths and beach with a small twig like brush, fully dressed, bent double and in the heat. Despite this, they had the biggest smiles - and that is saying something.
Food was fantastic, varied every day and freshly prepared in front of you. Stunning scenery. Incredibly relaxing. be prepared to put on weight though.

This was our third visit to the Maldives, but first time at Chaaya Lagoon and have to say that location, accommodation, service and friendly staff ticked all the boxes. Plenty to eat and drink and you are made to feel special by all the staff. The water bungalow was definately one of the best rooms we have had and our room boy, I think his name was Habib, did an amazing job with clean bed linen, towels and pretty patterns with sheets at bedtime! We came for a relaxing break - and got one!! No-one here has mentioned the Spa!! Definately worth a visit and the Balinese massage is a must!! Only down side is that the bar area could be more comfortable. Cushions on chairs and maybe some low key lighting would make for a more ambient surrounding. Not much in the way of entertainment but then you tend to make new friends which makes up for that. Our love to Johnny Ray (the stingray under our bungalow) who kept us company for a day - you can see the beautiful fish through the glass panel in the floor. Also in the pool in the bar floor - lion fish, parrot fish and many more. Thank you to you all. x

My husband and I spent one fabulous relaxing week here. The island is tiny and we were both initially pleased we had only booked one week...after one week we were regretting it wishing we had not bothered spending time in Dubai and had come straight here!! The whole island was relaxation personified. We stayed in a water villa, number 151, and enjoyed seeing plenty of fish in and around our villa and enjoyed plenty of sun. The reviews saying it was far to walk are laughable - you could walk the island in less than 15 mins and that was in 34 degree heat. We spent our days eating, sunbathing, reading, swimming and drinking and that basically was that. I would say that if you do come to the Maldives you should choose your island carefully - some of the younger ones looked bored and may have been suited to a more lively island. But for us it was perfect, exactly what we wanted from the Maldives - a secluded quiet island. Priceless x

Room Tip: The water villas looked much nicer than the beach villas so go for one of those.

We chose this beautiful island for our honeymoon & we were so pleased we did it was perfect & breathtaking. From the moment we landed by air taxi sea plane which was also an amazing experience we were made to feel very welcome by all the staff who were all very friendly and are a credit to the Island. We stayed in a water bungalow which was very spacious and kept lovely and clean by our room boy and the room had the most amazing view with steps down to the ocean where we discovered beautiful fish & coral. The food was so delicious & we enjoyed every meal time. We were very well looked after by Samir our waiter who was very charming with a gorgeous smile & we loved Rubel who made the best salads & omelettes we have ever tasted he was fab. Our view from our dining table was so idyllic & we looked foward to sitting there each day. We went on the snorkeling trips to nearby reefs by boat & we thoroughly enjoyed the experience seeing a turtle, gorgeous coral & fish. We had an amazing time at Chaaya Lagoon Hakuraa Huraa & would highly recommend this beautiful island it was paradise and will always be a very special place for us. Thank you so much and we are looking forward already to visiting again for our ten year wedding anniversary x

Just returned from Chaaya Lagoon after the best 12 days in the Maldives that we've ever had!
The management and the staff were fantastic and very professional, they made us feel really welcome from the minute we got there.
Our waiter Niushad and chef Rubels were superb' they are both a credit to the resort so a big thank you to them both
The room boy "saffy" 161 worked tirelessly in the amazing heat to make sure we had everything we needed through out our stay, again a credit to the team
The island itself is in a great location surrounded by unspoilt beauty, it's very clean and tidy.
Thanks to Raj and his team for an amazing holiday

We have just got back from a 2 week honeymoon here and it was perfect. The resort was beautiful and the staff could not have been friendlier.
The water bungalows were spacious and kept immaculately clean by our room boy Atif. The food was delicious with plenty of choice, our waiter Niushad was lovely and we were lucky enough to have a fantastic table looking directly onto the beach.
We spent an afternoon in the spa which I would highly recommend and the dive centre was fantastic. We tried scuba diving for the first time and the staff there were very supportive and knowledgable especially Lucky.
All in all a fantastic place and we are so pleased we chose this resort for our honeymoon - we have already agreed that we would love to return for our 10 year anniversary!
