Lovely Resort on a lovely Island Me and my family really enjoyed our holidays in Equator village very much! It is the ideal place to go diving or snorkelling and just relaxing at the beach or pool. Beside it is named a resort, we enjoyed the private character of the hotel. It doesn’t take long to feel home even so...

I last visited Equator Village in 2009 (there is no option for pre-2106, so I selected August 2016, although I was there in August of 2009). It was one of several places I stayed. The advantage to staying on Gan is that it is one of the few places in the Maldives, outside the crowded capital city of Male, where...

We went back to Gan for the 3rd time. The Equator Village resort is going through an upgrade. This resort is ideal for snorkelling and cycling and walking so plenty to do do.

Equator Village is located in Gan Island, previously used as a military base by RAF. This is not the typical Maldivian resort but the well maintained rooms surrounded by gardens make it an ideal place for holiday. It have swimming pool and offers diving to some of the best diving spots. As the island is connected with neighbouring islands it...

Hidden Gem of the Maldives and best value for money. Unfortunately, for reasons I am not aware of, there appears to be very few UK travel agents offering this resort, it is widely advertised in Germany and Eastern Bloc countries. Why would anyone not want to tell the world about a treasure island which is largely undiscovered by the majority...
