We just got back from a wonderful fortnight on this island. We had a beach villa directly onto the beach, with a shallow lagoon where small eagle rays and friendly black tipped reef sharks regularly appeared in less than 2ft of water. the snorkelling was amazing, and we also went on trips to see dolphins, and to swim with turtles and manta rays! the staff were attentive and friendly, big shout out to the bar girls: Thiry, Shashi, Wintri, Priyanka, Wahyuni and of course, the amazing Amel, who put up with a lot of teasing from Room 112! Our waiter "one more" Ali, who was always encouraging us to have one more drink, one more plateful, one more dessert....! our cleaner always did a wonderful job with a smile on his face, and the watersports team looked after us on our trips. This hotel is ideal for couples and young families as there are plenty of things to do (or not do) during the day, and rather quiet in the evening. Be aware that there are things that are not included in the all inclusive package, and even though the inclusive drinks are free you still have to sign for them every day which was a little confusing and irritating at times. There are no problems with Mosquitos as such as they regularly fumigate the island, but we have suffered bites, presumably from sand flies, so make sure to take antihistamines with you. overall a lovely island, and would love to return. thank you.

I took a freediving course with instructor Mohamed Visham. It was a very pleasant training - safe, understandable, and exciting experience. Maybe the best way to explore the ocean in a natural way is to dive with native people who know this place as their own home. Calm, peaceful, and full of awareness exploration of myself and the underwater world with a friendly and experienced guide.

Absolutely beautiful resort in the maldives. Perfect if you want to relax a few days at the beach but also suitable for people who want to spend more active holidays, as there are many activities and trips which you can do. I personally enjoyed diving very much and felt safe and in good and knowledgeable hands with my diving instructors. Delicious food with a great variety of different dishes. Also there is always a chef at the buffet, who cooks you eggs or pasta for example, freshly and exactly with the ingredients you want. All the staff is always friendly and polite, makes sure you have got absolutely everything you need. We were especially pleased with Razid, who cleaned our room for the week. He was always in a good mood and did his job perfectly. There was not a grain of sand left on the floor after he had cleaned! The nature, sea life and beach on and around the small island is breathtaking. If I had to describe paradise, I would probably describe pretty much exactly this magical place on earth.
