Chaaya Donhveli quick response if poss

Hello everyone, did a last minute to Chaaya, going on Sunday, would anyone know what the superior rooms are like, as no-one seems to make many comments, or would it be better to upgrade to beach bungalow (funds dont run too w/b), also is it ok to take medication in your hand luggage?lastly believe it is the start of the rainy season, pointers on what that entails, is it short bursts of rain or does it go on and on, please tell me it's not the latter!!!

many thanks

although its rainy season and the weather is always unpredictable i would say you would be unlucky to get solid rain

Try searching for the room type on YouTube lots of travelers post footage on there of the inside of rooms they have stayed in

As Darryl says, weather is unpredicatable. It's possible to stand on an island in the Maldives, basking in the sunshine whilst watching a storm over another island.

The answer to the medication part of your question will depend on your travel arrangements. Personally I think it's a good idea to only take as much as you need for the flight in your hand luggage and pack the rest in your checked in luggage. If your flying via Dubai do not take any products with codeine in them unless you have a perscription/doctors note for them.

Superior rooms are in 2 storey blocks. Large bedrooms and bathrooms, based on the channel as opposed to the lagoon side of the island.

Think they have now put few beds on the small beach, couldnt swim from here as current too bad, but this is where the dolphins used to pass at about 4ish every day, wonderful.

We also stayed in beach bungalow215 which i loved, open patio doors straight onto the beach.

Email island and request what you want, you may get without paying upgrade we did.

If you look through past reviews you will find email address.

Enjoy I preferred it here to Vilamendhoo.

Oh many many thanks for your quick response, will do as you sugest and take just what I need for the day in hand luggage, and take a chance and email for upgrade, fancy having direct access to the beach, and as you say would have to be really unlucky for it too rain all the time,just looking forward too relaxing and not have too think too much xx
