We had done some extensive research ourselves and we had given our excellent agent 'Angelfish travel' a list of criteria that we wanted from a Maldivian holiday. This is the second time we have used this company and... More

My husband & I traveled to the Maldives for our honeymoon. The resort is beautiful! We upgraded to a sunset villa with a plunge bool and it was fantastic. There was great snorkeling right outside our villa with an abundance of tropical fish. The resort felt very private and we never really saw anyone until we headed to the restaurants.... More
