My husband and I went on our honeymoon. The check in alone was incredible, Safa gave us a tour of the amazing island and showed us to our villa. We first stayed in a beach villa and then moved to an ocean villa, both were amazing, although we personally liked the beach villa better as we saw a lot more local wildlife and were closer to all the resort facilities. All the facilities are spectacular, we especially loved the UMI restaurant. The snorkeling is a separate issue, the marine fauna and flora is totally spectacular, just a minute swim from the villas. We did several excursions: diving with manta rays, a snorkeling safari, a dive on a nearby island.... All spectacular. I never got used to seeing sharks swimming along the shore of the hotel. Really, we only have good words for this incredible resort. We came here saying it was something we would only do once in a lifetime and we are already planning to come back.

What a perfect experience! We stayed at the Lti with our 2 kids (3 yo and 3 mo). Everything from the beginning till the end was wonderful! After a very long trip we were so well received and the welcoming cocktail was just perfect and refreshing :) even my daughter got a welcoming gift, she loved it! We stayed at the villa with the pool by the beach. Every single detail is taken care off. The rooms are spacious and everything is clean. The private pool is perfect for kids and adults ! And you have this feeling to have your own private beach The beach is paradisiacal: white sand and transparent water! You can even enjoy some sea life without going far. Even if it is a small island, you have the feeling to be alone! The food is very good and so the cocktails! I was surprised to find that the buffet was that good and varied. There is a clinic/doctor at the Island as well, easier if you need to do a pcr test for your travel. The staff is always available, all of them always smiling and ready to make you feel at home. The departure was as smooth and nice with them as the welcoming. I was nicely surprised to have that kind of goodbye ! If your hesitating to book your stay: don’t! This place is paradise in earth :)

As we had a lot of time there, we stayed in the water villa and in the beach villa. This was a good ideia: to change rooms and have both experiences. Both magnificent. The water villa had the sunset view, and we saw stingrays calmly swimming next to our room. Nice to have corals right below our bedroom. We loved the diving center. Manta Ray dive and Whale Shark dive are unmissable. The hotel facilities were amazing. Beyond expected. Spa has the best massages and beautiful infinite pool. All staff were really helpful and kind ALL TIMES. The food is excellent, amusing variety. We loved our experience.

We stayed in this magic resort for 12 nights and just never wanted to leave this paradise! First of all I want to mention I am very picky when it comes to service & food but this place really was above my expectations! The resort manager Pierre and all of the staff in every department are so super friendly and serviceminded! Everything from the welcoming to the hotel, the food, the ambient, everything was so luxurious! You felt like you were a celebrity 😊 We had a beach pool villa which was the best in my opinion. The villa was so big and very nice. The island has several restaurants with different type of food, and the quality is so high of the food! They also have a huge drink menu to choose from. Everything is newly renovated and very tasteful! The house reef is very good and has a lot of fishes, I swam there for hours. We also did excursions with their amazing marine biologist Pippa, we swam with mantas and whale sharks – it was so incredible! As mentioned before everyone in the staff were so genuine, super friendly and service minded – I must mention Chara and Niluka, I will never forget those two amazing persons! Next time visiting Maldives there is no doubt where I will stay 😉 This is the best resort I have stayed at!
