Me and my husband went here on our honeymoon and it was perfect! The staff, the room, the food and the beaches. Just lovely! I would recommend all inclusive as the prices in the Maldives are quite high. Make sure to visit the rooftop bar in the sunset and go snorkeling.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The atoll itself is amazing. The HI boasts several beaches dotted along the coast line, which were all very quiet and perfect for relaxing. Service was great. The bungalows are all in a row - sadly you share one bungalow within a building with the neighbouring bungalow, which in my case was not very pleasant...
