Even though overall satisfaction was very high, there were several things spoiling overall impression:
1. Too much mosquitoes (way more compared to our previous experience on maldives), we were eaten alive in indian restaurant specifically.
2. Backward flight to Male was supposed to be 45 minutes, receptionist promised it to be 80 minutes (with two stops), but instead we spent more than 130 minutes, flying further to north with scared kid.
3. Dietary requirements specified during check in weren't followed and waiters weren't fluent in English enough to deliver what was requested. Instead of plain grilled chicken breast for kid without spices we've got it seasoned with turmeric, black pepper, salad with onion...

This hotel has to have the best beach villas, they are just great. When I booked I didn't think I'd been there before but it was the Hilton Iru Fushi before which I then remember on entering the beach villa, its a design all by itself... been here before I think :)))
Anyway we had beach villa with a private pool, that was great. I really prefer being able to walk out onto the beach instead of the water villas that you just walking out onto a deck and you spend most of your time in the room as such. Gym was ok as was the restaurants and the bars. The island is reachable only via sea plane and takes about 45 mins.

It was a few years ago we went though was remembered by staff! A big shout out to Anil and Sharad from the breakfast and buffet restaurant who made our holiday extra special, thank you!

Its a 5star resort... the location , rooms and resort ambience are excellent !! To be true, it was an out of the world experience...!! They have around 8 restaurants and the food was very very good though vegetarian options are limited....the prices for the water sports are little expensive....the staff were very friendly and polite especially Ms.Whinnie Zhao....would definitely keep coming back to this resort for its excellent location, ambience and service....

We had the most wonderful time. My wife and I wanted to take our daughter 25 and son 23 on a special holiday to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. From the moment Saraah greeted us we were treated to superb service, fantastic hospitality and fabulous food and drink. During our stay we were made to feel so special by your first rate staff. We would like to send an extra thank you to Zareer Ahmed, Jocel Literal, Kuma Basaula and Aalif Hassan who pulled out all the stops to make our stay so exceptional and a memory to cherish.

Room Tip: Loved our beach villa
