pros : amazing house reef, great dive centre, perfect island, decent Rooms, good staff, good service
Our choice of Eriyadu was primarily based on the fact that it had its own house reef for diving...and WHAT a house reef! No photos can do justice to the myriad variety of fish that one can see at SUCH close quarters...We did the pADI certified diving course with Euro Divers there...and the entire experience was amazing! the professionalism of the instructors ( Guido ) and the diverse and vibrant coral reef with its fantastic fish in all shapes sizes and colors ... an unbeatable combination! we even saw a turtle :)
For those not keen on diving...no problem! one can literally WALK in knee deep water and see amazing fish and corals! Snorkeling too is lovely...
The resort is good value for money...its not a 5 star property, but it does not claim to be so! One can get good deals on directly talking to the resort....( Mr. Anaam....very helpful )
Ask for the Renovated rooms.....very comfortable, large... and good ACs...open to the sky bathrooms...great view....
The Bar's location is sublime.....fantastic view...and we actually saw sharks and eagle rays swimming right past us while we were sipping iced coffee :)
All in all a wholesome place...ideal for couples and families...if one wants to relax....
obviously Not for people looking for an active night life and discos!
Eriyadu is all about just you and nature...and the fishes ofcourse! :)
