It was my first time on Maldives and it appeared to be even better than I expected.
I chose seaplane transfer, it's pricey but the process went smooth.
The hotel was built as a 4* many years ago. That means that villas are nice but they doesn't look new or posh. Anyway, everything worked as expected, open sky bathroom is amazing, bed is comfortable and everyday cleaning was perfect.
I stayed in Reethi villa and was provided with highest level of privacy, which was exactly what I wanted. Villas are separated, I had my own sunloungers on a beach in front of my villa, separated from neighbors' sunloungers by bushes.
Unfortunately there were wild nature invaders in open bathroom (ants decided to drink from the toilet and then started fighting other ants) but guys from reception solved this problem.
I was provided with 2 bottles of water a day and despite my worries it was enough.
Buffet style food was good, not fancy, not a high-end dining, just good. I liked breakfast the best. I am choosey and my stomach is delicate but I could always pick suitable food.
If you order water or any other drinks for lunch or dinner they're not free but you can take the water from you room.
Service was good all the time, everyone was polite and friendly. I forgot to bring a cable for my gopro and surprisingly personnel could find it for me!
Massage in Coconut Spa was very relaxing.
Hotel allows to checkout just before transfer back which let me enjoy last half of day swimming instead of waiting for transfer in a lobby. Many thanks for that!
The island is amazing, I've been snorkeling almost all the time here and there and explored both sides of an island. I met turtles, sharks, rays, octopus, giant lobster (which was sadly eaten the next day by some animal) and dozens types of fish.
Visibility depends on tide and wind, sometimes it was good, sometimes not.
I also spotted dolphins swimming past the island in the early morning.
If to say about what could've been better, then it's meat in main restaurant, I can live without meet so I didn't care much but those meat dishes I tasted were dry and hard to chew.
Beach cleaning could've been better as it's hard not to step on coral particle or shell and overall beach view wasn't so spotless.
Overall, good value for the price.
