Great location! Good food, had an amazing time, staff are friendly. The very modern bungalows, all seaside with your own part of beach. If you are into snorkeling , what we did excessively, the Maldives are the right destination for you.

We've had an amazing time. Would go there again. Friendly and competent staff, lots of activities (a bit costly), great location. July is rain season, so the temperatures was at about 25 degrees...helped to avoid sunburns ✌🏽️. We had an amazing experience.

Royal Island is my first preference in case of my return to maldives. I love the environment, the staff, the facilities, the beach, the touch of maldivian service. It's worth a visit. You will certainly get the real value of your money in everything this island could offer ❤️

We visited Royal Island resort in June 2016 and I can say that it was one of the most amazing experiences. We were 9 people...4 adults and 5 children. We went half board. The experience was amazing from the moment we arrived. There is a local flight of 20 mints from Malle airport to Dharavandhoo airport. From there, it takes... More
