Hotel's Favorite
We just came back from our holiday and already miss the leisure days in the Indian ocean. As “Maldives addicted” we have stayed in so many hotels since 2005 that we just stopped counting at some point. I don’t write a review every time but this time it’s a must. First of all, I want to say a big thank you to the GM Mr Srikanth Devarapalli, a very kind man and true professional! Thanks to him we had the chance to visit this beautiful island and to experience one of our greatest holidays. What makes the resort so special: 1. All the island is with such a lush greenery, it’s like a jungle. At the moment you arrive you are captured by its beauty. 2. Fantastic house coral reef. It starts from the main restaurant and you can enjoy right up to the end of the water villas. Full of fishes, sharks, two times we saw a turtle and lobsters hiding under a big coral. Exceptional! 3. Restaurants! Every day different options but still we were every day having lunch in our favourite Beach grill! You have the shadow in the sunny days but in the evening all tables are out on the sand for a dinner under the stars/palms :) There are two restaurants which are nestled in the “jungle”, surrounded by bushes and trees - Le Asiatique and Amazonico. In the Asian we witnessed a great show at the Teppanyaki- the cook was juggling with a raw egg, then threw it into his hat and pulled out a chicken instead. The kids were watching with their mouths open all the time. The South American restaurant is Amazonico, delicious food accompanied by the sounds of latin music and guitars. I have to say that everywhere we had so so delicious meals, very beautifully arranged. Nearly most of the evenings there were organised special private dinners on the beach. The preparation starts from the afternoon when the staff are carving the shapes of mantas or hearts in the sand, then light them up and it looks really majestic in the night. The cinema under the stars was also booked almost every night. A big sofa bed is moved on the beach and the screen is put in front so only the ocean is behind. They also organise once per week a Gala dinner at the main restaurant. We were very surprised as trust me not in every hotel they put so much efforts. All the tables from the restaurant were put outside on the beach, decorated, there was a live music too, kids running around, it felt like a New Year’s Eve party. Grill stations were also settled and there was a big choice of fish and meats and whatever you may wish. 4. We had an outstanding accommodation. The villas are large, comfortable, always clean. The designers have made a very clever decision about the roofs of the houses, also there are flowers on the walls even of the water villas. We enjoyed so much riding on the bicycle around. 5.The Spa is absolutely fantastic. All massage rooms are actually very exotic cabanas with names of flowers, I even had the feeling that I am somewhere in Malaysia... 6. Kids club fortunately is open all day, no closures at all. They were full with activities. Our younger child was so happy every time I took him there. The kids enjoyed movies with popcorn, making bracelets, feeding the fish on the jetty, making cocktails and pizzas and so many other games. 7. Something that impressed me very much was the hotel application on the phone. Once on your phone, you can actually do everything from here - book and cancel reservations, view the menus of the restaurants ( even the kids menus are different ) , get all the info you need. I remember something similar, this high quality, on brand new cruise ship two years ago, so much things, so easy to work with. I look at my review now and I understand it is probably the longest “speechless” opinion but I really wanted to share all this stuff. I highly recommend this property because it is new, modern, with a very good management in all departments, great food, rich wine and drinks selection. All in all the hotel combines everything that I have ever seen in the other hotels, they didn’t miss anything. Before I finish I would like to thank the people who took a good care after us- Latheef, KD, Borhan and our butler Dave. We were very happy to meet the head sommelier Nash and his team from Zimbabwe, such nice people. All waiters in the Grill were perfect too. Thank you and can’t wait to come back!

We came back for the THIRD time to our favourite holiday destination. If we could give Emerald a score of 10 stars, they certainly would get it. As usual, we were spoilt rotten by the amazing team of Emerald, led by Sri. We stayed in the Jacuzzi water villa. Our butler Dave, was so friendly and so willing to help with any of our requests. KD and AK were permanently looking after our well being and Chef Aldo made us the most beautiful cuisine ever. Michelin level sushi and the very best ingredients used in all their foods. Rao, the front desk manager insured our stay would be as perfect as possible. In general, all the staff are super friendly and so hospitable. If you looking for the most PERFECT island holiday, Emerald has to be your choice. Rooms are clean and spacious. Facilities are just amamzing including tennis courts, a wonderful gym and more. Reef is stunning. Food quality and taste is above any other hotels we have visited (and my wife and I travel a lot). But what puts Emerald aboce all others, is the service they give their guests. As soon as you get on the island, you feel that you are a part of a family. We honestly love the Emerald resort. We are already planning our 4th visit but this time with our kids. We cant wait !!

My husband and I stayed here in November. As soon as we landed I knew one week wouldn't have been enough. This place is truly paradise on earth. The beaches around the island, the services, the spa, restaurant and choices of food exceeded every expectation. We stayed at a water villa looking at the ocean. The room was big and had plenty of storage space. The bathroom was bright and airy. From the balcony you can see the ocean and if you are lucky you can even see eagle rays from your villa. There were bikes outside your villa that you could use to move around, or you could ask your host to pick you up with a buggy and take you anywhere in the resort. The resort has plenty of activities everyday, trust me, you won't get bored here! I can only thank Zira for being so attentive, helpful and caring. He proved over and over he's an incredible host. I will be booking here again next year, this time for two weeks.

Our experience in the new resort who won most if the awards recently was a bliss. The island is gorgeous and big (20 hectares) villa spacious and very well constructed. The resort and beach are super clean ! Food is excellent and the special evenings (or private event) on the beach so romantic . The five sommeliers are very knowledgeable and made us discover delicious wines. The diving was the best I did in the Maldives. The spa deserves its award as the massages are amazing ! For tennis or paddle lovers don’t hesitate to take a private leçon with the coach . His advises and experience are very useful. This place is a must go for all of the above and more . A special thanks to the entire team for their kindness and professionalism ! We will be back ! Don’t hesitate and go to heaven!
