Angaga Island Resort & Spa is located in the South Ari Atoll and is surrounded by a wealth of natural beauty along with crystal clear waters and a white sandy beach. The island is approximately 45,000 square metres and is superb for snorkeling and diving with the house reef just 7-8 metres from the beach featuring live coral and beautiful marine life. This is a great island for those holidaymakers seeking peace and tranquility.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Angaga for 7 nights in February and we were extremely pleased with our choice. We stayed in the new overwaters that are just fabulous. The rooms are very large and comfortable, the bathroom is huge and there is an outdoor private shower space that you can access from the outside and that leads directly to the bathroom, which is super handy coming back to the room from the sea. The staff was incredibly nice and friendly and special shoutout to Ameer, the manager, who accommodated us to the best of his ability. We had in fact had a delayed seaplane coming from the airport to the resort because of bad weather conditions and we couldn't enjoy half of our day at the resort. For this, Ameer offered us some free amenities to make up for our loss, and that was very nice of him. Lastly, the food at the Angaga is fantastic, shoutout to the cooks who make a wide variety of delicious food. From the entrances to the desserts it was all incredibly yummy. Overall, a great experience, I definitely recommend the Angaga!

Honestly, Angaga is one of the best resorts I've stayed in the Maldives so far! It is not a fancy luxury property but provides all the amenities you need for a relaxing vacation. We booked this resort last minute so we did not have time for deep research, but we were not disappointed at all. The main reason to come to Angaga was the house reef; we read mixed reviews about it but I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. The reef is recovering well, you can see newly grown corals everywhere and lots of sea life: we have seen nurse sharks, black tips sharks, white tips sharks, turtles and groups of eagle rays every day beside the common fish species. We stayed in one of the sunrise-side beach houses (nr 107) which was just perfect for us since the house was right in front of villa. The house was clean and comfortable with an outside seating area and swing. There were some ants in the bathroom when it was raining at night, but it is normal in the tropics and ants spray was provided. The water villas looked a bit outdated, but the ones on the sunset side are currently under renovation and will be completely renewed by the end of the year. The staff is accommodating without being pushy or disturbing you in any way. Special thanks to the guys at the reception who are always there to assist in case you have any questions or need help, to the chefs at the restaurant who prepare amazing food day by day and to the guys in the bar (especially to Zafran) who serve delicious cocktails in minutes! We'll be back!

We had the best time at Angaga. The first step we took on the island was the beginning of a perfect Holiday. We got an upgrade to the new premium water bungalows. They are amazing!! Waking up and going to sleep on the ocean is amazing. Scanning the water and seeing sharks, manta’s, sting rays and so much more… A special thanks to Naja for keeping our room picture perfect and super clean. He is so friendly!! Every body on the island is friendly and helpfull so we got totaly relaxed to! The food was great! Everything super frech and yummy. Great salades, fish and curry’s and again realy friendly people that serve the food! You dont even have to go far to see amazing fish. There is an amazing reef right there, Its like swimming in a big aquarium. And when You do take a trip of the island everything is realy organized! Thank you to everybody at Angaga for giving us a beautifull holiday, we left with an amazing feeling and super relaxed!!

This is a desert island, peaceful and tranquil, wonderful staff and lovely food. The staff are dedicated, polite, and proactive to your every wish and need. I wish to give a special mention to Samon for his professional manner behind the bar, his kindness, and attention. He is a real credit to Angaga. I do not have one bad word about the staff. We had two vegetarians in our group and given some lovely special meals. The waiters were very attentive and a credit to Angaga. The rooms were always kept tidy. I must, however, add a negative note, but I must also add this not any fault of Angaga. My travel agent did not inform me of weight limits on the seaplane. I subsequently was charged an additional $140. Please check with your travel agent about this. I wish to convey my deepest gratitude for my time there and thoroughly recommend Angaga

The hotel is not worthy of 5 stars, the rooms are very old, the walls are cracked, the doors are broken, there are also cockroaches. If your house falls on the side where there is almost no water in the ocean, you have to walk to the other side to enter the water or go to the pool which is one and with very few sunbeds, if you struggle to get one. There is a tennis court, but it is only for STAFF, there is a children's corner, but it is open until 5 pm, after that there is nothing for the children to do in the complex, there is a pool table that is always occupied .The food is shocking, it is only for Asians and Indians, for Europeans there is almost no fruit, almost no vegetables, vegetables too. Grill with spices only for Indians and the grill is once a week. If you miss breakfast or lunch scheduled as a time, you can eat but you will you pay for it, it doesn't matter that you are all inclusive, if you want an alcoholic drink other than the small assortment, you will pay for it. There is an a la carte restaurant, you have the right to order one dish if you want something extra, as my daughter only eats fries you will pay for them. There is no entertainment on the island in the evening as well as during the day.

the island itself is very nice, but the barrier reef is a bit poor, many corals are dead due to el nino. still quite an amount of fish but not super colored. we staied in the water villa, very nice and clean. about the beach bungalows there are some on the east part of the island where the beach is wider but not so easy the entrance in the water. in this part the sun goes down early. the west part has a norrower beach but with a nicer lagoon. good food. not very exciteed of the diving center, not very flexible.

This was the third time we visited Angaga Island. What a beautiful place, even a few weeks later when writing this review, I still remember the holiday with pleasure. We booked half-board, i.e. breakfast/dinner and this was plenty with a super buffet and great service. We never used our shoes or sandals in the 10 days, with the sand being cleaned daily. Staff at reception was very helpful and polite. The bars were good and surprisingly not overly expensive. Angaga also offers decent excursions, we participated in the fishing and the snorkelling one. Now to the not so good parts.... sadly, the reef population has reduced significantly since our last visit which is not a complete surprise. Although Angaga is trying to build artificial reefs, which is very good in itself, access to the reef for snorkelling is rather difficult as the reef is rather high up and the danger to injure yourself therefore increased. We stayed in the "old" water bungalows (there are some new versions available too), which are lovely inside, and being stood up on wooden posts. It was shocking to see the state of these posts due to water damage. It was shocking as it looked they could collapse when you jump inside the bungalow. I am not comfortable to stay in one of those again. Apart from the health risk, even if imagined by us, we heard from staff that Angaga plans to build more water bungalows. We therefor also feel the atmosphere of a small "barefoot" island is going to be ruined, so we sadly said our goodbyes. But thanks again for all the great times we had there.

We stayed here 5 years ago and requested to be on the lagoon side as this was where we were before. We got a room where we wanted, which was great-just a couple of rooms along from where we were before. When we went before the north eastern side had virtually no beach, but now in 2023 this side now has a lovely wide beach. There is some loss on the lagoon/water bungalow side but not as bad as it was on the other side 5 years ago. They still have the budgies flying free all over the place, but we think regarding the Macaws that they should have a much larger cage so they can fly around properly. The cage they are in is too small for 2 such large birds. Angaga management please consider doing this. The room was as we remembered and we much prefer the indoor bathrooms to the outside ones on most of the other islands we have been to. Using the bathroom in the middle of the night is not a pleasant experience when open to the elements and wildlife! I also find the heat in outside bathrooms counter productive so that once you have showered and feel clean and fresh, before you get back into the rooms you are hot and sticky again! Please don't ever change to outside bathrooms Angaga!! The bars and restaurant were also much as we remembered. We could always find something we both liked in the restaurant, but feel the choices were a bit lacking at times. They don't due themed nights like other places we have stayed and it would have been nice to have some more specific Maldivian dishes on offer more often. We loved going to the sundown bar after dinner as it was nice and quiet and you usually got a nice breeze there too. We felt that the reef seemed to be recovering with lots of new growth and plenty of fish too. We saw turtle, black & white tipped reef sharks, octopus, batfish, eel, Anemone fish etc. etc. We did see some rays, but not when we were snorkelling unfortunately. Keep up the good work Angaga and maybe we'll come and see you again soon

I chose this island for several reasons. Firstly, it was a really good deal given the fact that the seaplane was included in the price (that can set you back several £100s; I booked with Destination2) Secondly, it gave me the impression of being a small island and not crowded. I wanted peace and quiet, being able to enjoy the silence while looking at the ocean, listening to the waves, reading a book and falling asleep in the swing bed... Well, that is exactly how it went. In that sense, this island is ideal. It is small; so small, in fact, that you can go around it in ten minutes. Another plus side is the fact that the staff is very friendly and obliging, always smiling and ready to go the extra mile to grant the request. Then why 4 and not 5 stars? I had a bit of a dilemma in deciding; if I were to go by the way I felt there, I would give it a 5. However, if I were to weigh out the shortcomings, than I should go for 4 stars. There were some things that puzzled me, like the fact that the pillow cases were not ironed...When I asked, I was told that they would get creases anyway when they were folded...Or, when I asked for decaffeinated Nescafe sachets for the room, I was told that they do not provide decaffeinated ones...Why? They cannot be more expensive than the ones with the full caffeine in them...so a variety would be welcome...The room was cleaned daily, the bathroom was new and shiny, the mattress was very comfortable, but...the lampshades were tatty, and stained by the rust of the rims...A little detail I know, but still, a shortcoming. Finally, the shocker was the bathrobes; shreds coming out of them, grey with the passing of time instead of white and frankly un-usable. Personally, I did not want anything like that next to my skin! I suggested they should be completely removed. The food was tasty but not much variety given the fact that it was a small island and had a limited number of guests, not like on bigger island where the variety can be greater without much waste. Another thing that contributed to my detracting a star, which had nothing to do with the organisation of the resort, was the fact that the island did not have much of a sandy beach. In most places it was rocky and with corals, which did not allow for safe swimming. (I am not a confident swimmer) Also the tide was very low in the afternoon, and in the only place where there was a bit of sand, you could only splash in the sea only in the morning and before 2.p.m as in the afternoon the water was up to your waist. So, overall, a pleasant experience and a very good deal. Would I go back? May be.

It’s probably one of the cheaper resorts in the Maldives and it really shows. I got one of the water bungalow and it was nice for what you pay for. Because of the bungalows are close to each other, you can’t have a clear view of the ocean unfortunately. Service wasn’t always friendly, sometimes even rude, especially in the restaurant of the resort. If I know it’s a Muslim country but their customer service isn’t the best there. I’ve seen reviews that Asians especially weren’t always treated well. I’ve tried to request vegan meals at the restaurant but I’m not sure they understood the concept of it? They work with a buffet style restaurant so you can pick and choose the food yourself. The island itself is pretty small and there isn’t a lot to do except for water sports of course. I’ve done some diving and snorkelling to kill the time. I’ve also tried their spa and it was a bit overpriced for what you get. All by all, I don’t think I’ll ever go back to this resort again.
