even though pricey, I can't say that I've ever had better holiday. I stayed in beach house, which is perfect. Don't be miss lead with the hotel's statement about 72 sq.m.space, since the leaving room is actually your own backyard. Didn't mind because its perfect. We had to move to another beach house due to warmth of location in the...

My family and I had the pleasure to stay a week in this lovely resort where we found courteousness from all the staff of the island. Great place either for children and adults due to the possibility to organize several activities. Our room was beach-front and its size more than desirable. Clean and aired, we really liked it. Highly recommended.

The Maldives are so gorgeous and relaxing, I can’t imagine that even a bad hotel would change the experience. But HI is great.

Depending on what you are looking for, this could be the place for you. It has a play area for kids, gentle beaches, and a buffet with lots of choices.
