Our luxury beach suite was perfect and very comfortable and we had a chance to upgrade after three nights to the water bungalow. So we enjoyed the best of both worlds. Being a mainly Italian resort we benefitted from outstanding quality food and bar service and the main buffet was outstanding. Wide variety of food served in a genuinely warm and friendly manner with imaginative culinary flair. The Maldivian evening was outstanding. A new resort general manager ( couple ) made our stay very enjoyable. My wife needed to see a doctor and Carla the General Manager made every effort to assist in arrangements and showed interest and genuine care afterwards. The reception was attentive as was the entire team who are clearly well led by a highly serviced and competent team. During our stay nothing was too much trouble for the team from skimmed milk for my wife’s coffee to arranging a wakeboard excursion for my son. Look this is a five star resort and you pay for it but you don’t come away feeling cheated. Luxury, comfort, ambiance and service as well as quality food and beverage service. As our week came to and end we were so impressed with the resort and by the team who made every effort to deliver a memorable experience. They say the small things matter, on the boat trip to the jetty to catch the seaplane, we were accompanied by Carla and Jaco the general manager who made the effort to see everything went well for us and came to wish us a pleasant trip home. Super impressed with this five star service and it made a hugely positive experience very memorable. I highly recommend this hotel resort as a must do experience.

This place really is paradise. We stayed in an East facing water villa which had spectacular views over the house reef. The villa was superb, very spacious, with ample seating and sun bathing beds on the deck. 4 poster bed, which was very comfortable. Well stocked mini bar and coffee machine. Shower leads out onto the deck, which was perfect after dip in the sea. The room didn't have an apple iMac as advertised, but that didn't bother us really as spent almost all the time outside. Unlike the pictures on the website, there were no privacy curtains or rain shields (for the wet days) on the desk, probably due to the high wind at this time of year. Again, didn't bother us. The staff here are incredible. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so very welcome. All the staff always had a smile (behind their masks). There are too many to mention them all, but a special shout out to Say who looked after us at meal times (more about the food shortly). Nothing was ever too much trouble for him and he really did make every meal special. When you stay in a water villa, you get exclusive access to the water a la carte restaurant. The food was amazing. 4 course meal for lunch and dinner, with a great variety of option to suite most tastes. The local fish was mouth watering (said by someone who until now hasn't really liked fish). The food was always beautifully presented and tasted great. Breakfast was a treat in itself. You could choose to have your breakfast delivered to your villa at a time that suited you, or you could go to the restaurant if you fancied. A great selection of fruit, bread, pastries, cereal, meat, English breakfast, pancakes and more.. all freshly prepared along with a wide selection of drinks. If you are keen snorkeler or diver, this is the place for you. The hotel provides snorkeling kit which you can borrow. The house reef is beautiful. Huge variety of reek fish, sharks, Turtles and stunning coral. All just a step from the deck. For divers, the iDive team based on the island will take you to out to some spectacular spots, we saw giant manta rays, turtles, plenty of sharks and a big variety of coral and reef fish. The island isn't very big, you can walk all the way around it on its prestine white sand in about 15 mins. As you walk around, you may see young black tip reef sharks stalking the small fish in the shallows. On the island you may see fruit bats, small parrots (maybe love birds) and maybe even a few lizards. In summary, this has been our best holiday to date. If you are thinking of booking a holiday to the Maldives, this is the place to stay.

Nothing can prepare you for how incredible this island really is. We had the most idyllic 11 days and are already planning a return. There is nothing we could fault, the food was outstanding and catered to everyone's needs and the staff were incredible, no request was too much. They go out of their way to make you feel like you are on holiday, there are too many to name but the manager Shameen, was outstanding, friendly, incredibly knowledgeable and he seemed to know all of his guests personally. Khalil and Elaan the barmen were very entertaining and accommodating. Everything at the resort runs smoothly and is organised. The diving is amazing and there is loads to see. This is without a doubt our best holiday and was made even more special with the effort made for my birthday. Thank you for everything, it feels like you went above and beyond. A piece of my heart definitely remains with you. Until next time.
