Even thought we were in 2014 on our honeymoon, it's a place we'll never forget. Best 10 days of our lives. The food was great, the stuff was very friendly and helpfull and the weather/ water just perfect. The extra activities were a little expensive, but we hope we'll go back for our " babymoon" :)

We were amazed by the color of open waters - so many shades and hues of blue and green. And the clarity was amazing as well we could see fishes under the water....

The Maldives.....this was our second visit to the area and Dhonvelli is equally stunning. The stilted room was beautiful and spacious, however upon reflection one facing the bay rather than ocean would have been preferred. Food was typical AI, plentiful and of good quality. The salad making chap was spot on! Sitting watching the dolphins while eating your food is...
