Hotel's Favorite
We stayed here in February and it's was an amazing experience. When you arrive on Male airport you are taken to the hotel lounge where you are given refreshments while you wait for your speed boat transfer. The boat takes about 40 mins. The resort in stunning, just like all the postcards you see of the Maldives. We stayed a deluxe over water bungalow with private pool. The room was amazing, the colour of the sea was what you'd expect from the Maldives. We saw lots of fish, reef sharks and turtle swim past our villa. The food was amazing too. Our favourite was the Thai restaurant for dinner and lunch. Saying that the breakfasts were one of the best at any resort we've ever stayed at. They cater for all dietary requirements (my wife is vegan and she loved the variety of options). Service was 5 stars too and the wifi was great. Only slight criticism is that you had no choice but to pay for premium water brands at lunch and dinner at $8 a bottle, they didn’t offer you the cheaper local brands that you get free in your room. We stayed at another resort and at least you had the option to buy a local brand ($3 a bottle) Otherwise, this place is perfect.

I wanted to great a small surprise for my partner. The service staff did not respond. I asked many times for very little things. Thats what they respond "We apologize for the delayed response". Big surprise - even after they respond ... nothing happened again. It is a luxury and very expensive resort - a better service should be provided.
