The Spa (manicure and pedicure treatment) is very average, maybe it need to have some signature touch in it The Iranian food special at the dinner by the beach was not Iranian at all All and all, it was a great, relaxing and enjoyable holiday and now we "snap back to reality"

Hotel's Favorite
Have just returned from the most amazing week in the Maldives at this stunning resort, could not rate it highly enough, from the moment my husband and I set foot on the island we were treated like royalty and every member of staff made us feel very welcome and special including our amazing villa host. We were staying in one of the stunning over water villas, which had every possible amenities and if you needed anything else by chance it was not a bother and sourced for you asap! All restaurants we attended had great service and lovely food, excursions were good value for money. All in all we could not have had a better experience for our first time (hopefully not last) in the Maldives,

It was first time to visit Maldives and really enjoyed the stay up to the last minute from the arrival till the airport departure . The thing you will really like that there will be dedicated assistant for you during you stay and available 24 hours. A lot of places you go during the day such as snorkeling,fly board ,SPA all were amazing . My stay was five night and wished i was able to extend :(
