Everything was amazing. It's difficult to find anything negative. Ok the Internet can be faster. Maybe we can have tv. But really who needs Internet and tv on paradise? The food is amazing. The team is very nice and always looking after our needs. So once again AMAZING

Villa was A+. Food was excellent, same was inhouse reef and dive center. Prices was high end but I guess thats Maldives. Two things they should fix: A) they have a perfectly fine tv room above the divecenter, still they use the only (main) bar to show movies, nature documentaries etc. Where they instead should keep the bar for well,...

This is a small luxury resort, on North Ari Atoll. We went on a 4D3N trip in middle of June 2016, and it rained with strong wind the day before we left the island. Guess it was the beginning of the monsoon season. We tried their beach villa (#4) for 1 night, and the other 2 nights of overwater villa... More

The island is picturesque and enchanting and the staff is very friendly. Before arrival weather reports had us pretty concerned but (perhaps from luck) we had a majority of beautiful sun-filled days. It is true that when it rains, it pours - and usually it happened overnight. The island is fumigated, so mosquitos (and bugs in general) were minimal. For... More

The first impression from the resort is very nice: all is smooth, everybody is welcoming.
