I have a lot to say about Gangehi and would express my experience in detail with only intention to keep travellers aware of the facts and experience I had since Maldives is a place for lifetime experience and we would not want anyones vacation to be ruined after paying a hefty amount for the same. Coming to the point i have a very bitter truth to say about the operations team who is not only pathetic but terrible and disgusting at customer satisfaction. I had booked my trip between 17th to 21st dec 2022 to Gangehi resort for my anniversary celebration and the same had been intimated to the resort in advance as well. At initial inquiry and request at the reception we were assured to have the arrangements checked for a beach dinner or any other complementary service by the pathetic attendant Mr Manoj. However the same afternoon our request for complementary beach dinner was denied being a paid service but we were offered a complementary fruit platter and bed decoration on the anniversary day to which we agreed since it was a peak season already. Considering the importance of the day and destination we had an excitement to celebrate the special occasion and decided to go for paid dinner arrangements. The resort had a package of 260 usd (25k INR) per couple for the beach dinner with prescribed menu, however we did not want it since most of the items were not from our diet viz lobster, prawns etc. As an alternative we requested for the buffet dinner with the same seating beach setup for which Mr Manoj asked us to pay 100 USD (10k INR). This included a table, two chairs, heart shaped lighting around,a small open tent and the buffet dinner which already was in our package. However we happily agreed considering it was our day and we had no option . However the next morning when we went to confirm the booking (at this time the reception staff's ignorance towards us had already started) and time for the arrangements they denied our request and asked for 200+ usd for the same setup confirmed earlier evening giving us reasons for miscommunication regarding the setup. they informed us to give only a table and chair setup on the beach for 100$ with the same buffet dinner. Now the earlier setup image was confirmed and shown to us by Mr Manoj and the reception lady both to which they responded as a miscommunication between the duo. Till now we could clearly see the greed and hunger for money in their eyes and upon multiple polite requests from both myself and my wife reception staff did not pay heed to our concern even after promising the setup the previous night. Seeing that we did not have any option in the island they decided to ignore our request completely and expected we would agree to pay the extra 100$ however we stood by our side and decided not to fall for a 100$ scam trap and enjoy our own company along with the beautiful guests around. We expected the reception staff would be providing the complementary platter and bed decoration as promised by them as a surprise after the paid setup incident however to our astonishment they did not have the courtesy to do even that. This proved our conscience right about greedy Manoj and the team. The real surprises began the next day when the reception staff especially Manoj had started to completely see us as invisible greeting all the guests around except us. We decided not to spoil our mood for such pathetic people and refrained ourselves from the reception area however even on the day of check out we encountered a similar kind of approach from the pathetic guy. Wherein the reception lady very politely helped us with the exit formalities and got our final payment cleared Manoj had the similar pathetic expressions of ignorance and could not even take efforts to bid a good bye to the guest/us. And infact This was the same guy who had done a good welcome at arrival. I am completely surprised by the fact even after confirming certain thing, after multiple calls / requests from myself , my booking agency, resorts central booking agencies in male these pathetic people completely decided to go blind and deaf mode. In addition they run a hospitality business and carry the guts to display ignorance and attitude to their guests as if they are doing a charity in housing the guests after accepting thousands of dollars for the service. Rest for the scenery, ambience and kitchen staff were really beautiful however I would never visit this place with same pathetic front desk people even if offered for free. As they have already ruined my first marriage anniversary and i would not want anyone else to get their special days ruined as well.

Super friendly staff - clean bungalows. Only the beach sun beds need improvement. The cushions were not clean - some mould were on it. Restaurant staff friendly and the service was Perfect. Buffet offering was good but some food was offered more than one time per week. Dessert offering was very restricted - very small amount of fresh fruits like pineapple were available. Prices for drinks on the higher end. 9-12 USD Diving station very friendly - were bakte to cancel my snorkeling trip short term because of my health condition. House reef very close. We saw a lot of fishes.

To put it simply - anything you can think of in terms of what a resort has to offer, Gangehi fails terribly. Food is horrible, service is horrible, facilities are horrible, toothbrushes and bottled water costs more than a 100 USD.

1. Food is HORRIBLE, the worst out of every resort we have been to in our lives. 2. No water provided at all, 500ml bottles sold at 4usd each 3. No toiletries and vanity kit provided, 1 set of toothbrush and toothpaste sold at 12usd 4. Nespresso coffee pods sold for 4usd each 5. Double bed is made of 2 single beds with a separation in between 6. Wooden decking is rough and worn out, gave me a splinter in my foot 7. Shower taps are grimey and rusty 8. Light switches are stuck and not working, so no lights in bathroom at night 9. WiFi sucks, worse than mobile data 10. Check-out time is 11am Maldivian time, they charge extra for late check-out even though resort was only occupancy of 30% 11. Their manual says 2 times housekeeping services each day, but when we called for a change of towels, they said they only provide housekeeping once a day.

A lovely island in Maldivian style, all wood pathes and natural equipment, soft illumination. Beautiful sea with a great fauna. Nice and easy snorkeling. A long beautiful sandbank for a nice walk. Very good cuisine with a great variety of dishes, fresh fish and delicious desserts. We stayed in a lovely beach villa, very well equipped with big cupboards and a terrace looking out to the sea. The diving center also organized excursions to see mantas and snorkeling at Madoogali island. The whole staff is very efficient and friendly. -+

traveling in times of pandemic has additional costs and one knows it. but when lodgings take advantage of this and make it a business, it's ridiculous. We traveled to different destinations where the tests had a value within the "normal" barcelona usd70 dubai usd50 argentina usd35 omani usd25 indian usd18 Maldives usd 150? It is a pity that they take advantage of this and condition the guest to those values ​​for not having an option.
