Great thanks to your lovely staff especially the assistant F&B manager JEFF, he is really shown your island hospitality and brilliant service already beyond our expectation, since we had a group over 20PAX he is looking after even every detail for our accommodation.

Room Tip: Since I realize there are many Chinese visitor you have, that will be cause both trouble if without Chinese notice for charge the amenity (dressing pouch) in the room - my friends really like it but doesn't know it's chargeable. Anyway she paid for it while check out.

The trip to Angsana Velavaru was a mix bag however the place still leaves with very few words to describe it. So 3 letters ....WOW

For me the Angsana can be divided into 2 parts and 2 experiences:

Part 1- The Administrative Staff- They need to get thier act together
Part 2- The service Staff- They rock

The great part of the property is the luxurious villas both in ocean or land intertwined with the absolute beauty of maldives. its so beautiful you just cant take enough of it.

Everyone from the housekeeping staff to the restaurant staff humbles you with thier service and care. I forgot my camera at one of the restaurants one night and it was spectacular to see how they traced me out and returned my camera even before i discovered I had misplaced it.

They are such a talented group of people as they multitask into an entertainment group in the night to making grasshoper out of palm leaves...amazing

The food served is extremely well layed out and delicious. From local cuisine to tropical fruits its a scrumptious spread.

PART 2

Despite a confirmed booking the air taxi transfer from Male to Angasana cancels while we wait in thier lounge. Asking us to fend for ourselves ....not something you are expecting after paying $3000 upfront.

We are finally ferried to the hotel at 2 am ensuring we have missed the first night of the planned stay.

I request for an upgrade to the ocean villa on extra payment and am confirmed the same. the morning of the transfer when I quiz I am told that there is a technical glitch and the upgrade would not be possible.

In all did not get all that I paid for, please be carefull with what the admin team promises you

Nonetheless highly recommend the property and the location. Great place great service

The place is stunning and there's a surprising amount of things to do. The food was lovely as well. Especially the Japanese restaurant above the sea. Staff are quite helpful except for the rude staff member at the beach shop. Think he was Australian. Serious attitude problem. Other than that we had a pleasant stay. The snorkelling trips in particular were a lot of fun. Amazing sea life!

We stayed four nights and received excellent service from the hotel. Both the Spa or the scenery on Angsana Velavaryu is really very good which makes me very comfortable and memorable. We wish we could have same kind of tirp once more.
Thank you for all staffs of Angsana and Banyan tree.

Room Tip: Excellent!
