Maldives has always been by favourite destination! This is my third visit but every time I come here , I get the feeling I should quit my life in Bombay & move here , the only biggest drawback being my dog-Laila will not be allowed. Gangehi is the ultimate resort for me, our water villa had sting rays hanging around.... More

You have called the reception several times in order to present your products to our Chef. Our receptionist asked you kindly to send him an email seen that the Chef was very busy in the kitchen and his priority is to be ready at all meals, as you can understand. Even though you continued to call and our receptionist told... More

We wanted a very special holiday to celebrate 25 years married, and having had several previous holidays in The Maldives I wanted a small, secluded island, with great food and great diving. Gangehi exceeded my expectations. The food was exceptional, given everything has to be flown in, I was amazed at the variety and quality of the salads, veg, fish,... More

We stayed 3 nights at Oversea Delux Valla on this Resort. Everything is perfect in Gangehi Resort. Especially foods, staff and villas are perfect. We stayed on oversea villa but we will prefer beach villa next time. Because sand is fabulous and you don't have any chair on beach if you stay at oversea villa. You shall join manta Safari....

This hotel is situated in a stunning environment, rooms are nice, food is good and most staff are very friendly and keen to help. The hotel is also surrounded by a beautiful reef for snorkling. Although this hotel was definitely not the most expensive to book a room, the real costs are generated from the moment you arrive. Although we... More

+ Wonderful beach and perfect water temperature + Best buffet food in my life + Very nice staff + Great diving - Several of the facilities could use some renovation - Garbage handling could in general be improved in Maldives - If you find a cheap deal on internet (as we did) drinking water is not included
