This is a very good resort ; you have everything you need to feel relaxed and have a great holiday . The food is very good , the cabins on the beach are nice and comfortable but if you need internet , forget about it : it's very very slow and it comes with a price ( 75$/ 10 days... More

Spent a lot of time researching on which resort to pick in Maldives and as it was to be our anniversary, it had to be perfect. And so we stumbled upon this gem. The rate was mid-range, something that we wanted, plus it being a 5-star really made it a great deal. You have to arrange your domestic flight and... More

Very pleasant and warm older "royal style" wooden villas around all the very greeny island. Friendly place surrounded with palms, trees and mangroves. Staff is very friendly and helpful. White beach, amazing blue lagoon with pristine watter and unbelivable underwatter paradise. Breathteaking views from your villa. I would recommend this resort for people they search for a paradise and have... More

We visited Maldives on September 2015 for our honeymoon. We stayed on a house on the beach, which was very clean, quiet and the view to the sea through the trees was excellent. Don't hesitate to ask any information you want by email before you visit the resort, you will get immediate answer. They were all very kind, always greeting... More

First I will have to admit that when I booked this place I had in mind that "one's get what one's pay for", this is an average 5* class hotel and you can feel it once there... less expensive but not up to the services. This establishment is owned by a maldivian company and though we thought it would be... More

My husband and I spend one week mid-August in this hotel. We had a great private villa directly on the beach. Everything was perfect: cleaning twice a day and comfy bed. The bathroom has an outside shower which is very nice, but looks a little old. The food in the buffet restaurant was always good and changed every day. One... More

Everything was excellent. The service, the staff, the island, the location, everything was perfect. The hotel staff always friendlly and nice. We enjoyed very much our honeymoon The first day we arrive, we took a bath on the beach in front our hut during the sunset... No words to describe, unbelivable. Snorkelling and canoeing around the island allowed us to... More

My wife and I visited this amazing piece of paradise at the start of August via Virgin Holidays and enjoyed every moment bar one... The island is simply superb. We were visiting on our honeymoon and had a beach villa (177) allocated to us on the quieter rear end of the island by the Raabondhi restaurant. For the 8 nights... More
