Our family of 6 (2A 4C) spent 4 nights at the Konotta in a 2 bedroom pool suite on a full board plan. From arrival to departure, we felt well cared for by our host Nasru and our housekeeper Adam. The staff at Blue Salt where we ate most of our meals were also kind and genuinely

Incredible resort visited twice in 12 months. Simply stunning, pristine white sandy beaches. Amazing house reef, a must for scuba divers. The marine life is second to none. Accommodation very high standard. The food produced by head chef Chris and his team is exceptional.

If you take a look at the island on Google Satellite view the Lagoons villas are quite easy to spot. Follow the shore from the Water Villa jetty toward the service jetty; they're the two villas just next to the service jetty. Hope that's a help.

We spent 11 idyllic nights at Konotta last June. The house reef is fabulous; very easily reached from the beach and teeming with marine life. I was amazed at the number of sharks (lots of them chasing bait fish around the service jetty each morning), snorkelled with turtles, batfish and a family of eagle rays. There were less large schools of fish than I'd seen on my previous visits to The Maldives, but I did get caught up in a huge cloud of parrot fish and actually thought the snorkelling at Konotta was the best I'd ever experienced.

Outrigger Konotta is 340km (approximately 211 miles) South of Male and just 30 miles from the equator and is much too far to reach by speedboat. To transfer to the resort you take a 1 hour domestic flight from Male to Kaadedhdhoo in Gaafu Dhaalu Atol, then a 40 minute speedboat ride to the resort. I hope that's a help.

Hi, we're looking at this resort for April 2019 and the all-inclusive option (not all inclusive plus). I have a few questions.. 1] Can anybody tell me how far the dine around 55usd credit per person per day works out for use against either theme nights in Driftwood, Nala Rha, a beach BBQ or in-room dining. We'd be 2 adults and a child age 6 so I'm assuming we'd have 165USD per day credit but how far would this actually go towards these available options? 2] The best price Qatar flight seems to arrive in Male at 15:15. Are there plenty of domestic flight options beyond that time in case we were delayed and would the resorts yacht transfer be able to accomodate any domestic flight arrival time? 3] We've stayed all inclusive a few times before (including the Maldives) but the room mini bar has always been included. The standard AI option doesn't seem to include this which is disappointing. The AI Plus option does but its also significantly more expensive (too much for our budget) but appreciate it includes a lot of other extras too. Are you able to take a drink from the bar to your room if you wanted? 4] We are looking at a beach villa as we will be travelling with our little boy. Are mosquito nets provided over the beds including child beds? We visited the maldives earlier this year and we had nets over our beds (including our child) and we had the room sprayed each night after we went out to dinner (they also left us spray in the room to use ourselves).. Our little boy was bitten terribly the first 2 nights without that.
I will try my best to answer some of your questions to the best of my ability . We were met at Male airport by an Outrigger representative who took us to a LOUNGE where we waited and hour and a half for our domestic flight , so plenty of time for delays . The menu is vast so no real need to pay extra but maybe do the teppenyaki on your last night as this was VERY good , my 10 year old son loved it . Mosquitos are unfortunately RIFE but we had sprays , creams and plug-ins provided ....plus AFTER sting creams but no nets . Take a small tube of repellent with you if possible as the domestic airport , where you get on the Outrigger boat to go to the resort , is full of the little buggers 😞 !!

"Villa 104 was in a great spot on the wider part of the beach, well suited to families. Offers some welcome shade compared to water villas."
"We liked the beach villas."
"If you are looking for privacy, villa 113 is the best choice."
"Overwater villas are just amazing - pay the extra!!"
"Beach villas 200,201, 100-112 all had beach during Feb/Mar. All Villas both Beach and Over Water are all excellent, all with private pools."
