Nothing to show.
Staff are very hospitable, kind and accommodating. Food varieties were great Rooms is clean, however flooring needs some maintenance, and more lights are needed at walking trails. Otherwise we had amazing experience
This is an excellent resort for a comfortabke stay with house reef for 24×7 snorkeling. The Front Office Manager Mr Vaishak is very helpful and supportive. He went out of way to make our stay comfortable. Customer First is his mantra. Talking about the Food and Beverages, the buffet option is really wonderful. The Chef Mr Sohail is an excellent guy. As we are pure vegetarian, he ensured that on daily basis we get good Indian vegetarian food. If the vegetarian options were less in buffet, he used to get something special cooked for us. Imagine manging 300+ guests and still giving personal attention to all so that everyone gets good food. They alos have in-house diving center for snorkeling. Mr Ramdan who works there is an excellent coach who helped us with snorkeling sessions during day and blue light snorkelling during night. Very warm and has lots of patience. It was real fun going with him for snorkeling. Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Resort.
We totally loved our holiday. Very easy and smooth process from arriving at Male airport ,to seaplane transfer. We were very happy with our room. The bed was very big and comfortable, I love showering 'outside'. The room was kept very clean. It is slightly dated but that didn't matter. Our attached superior villa led directly onto the beach, we were number 73. For direct Beach access from the superior villas numbers 70-100 are best. Amazing snorkelling directly from the beach, very safe and easy for children and inexperienced snorkellers. Very abundant fish life. Just a little disappointing was the lack of coral protection education from the island, many people were standing on the coral unaware of the damage they were doing. We were all inclusive and the food and drinks were plentiful. The buffet included a selection of different food choices covering all palettes from salads, soups, pasta station, curries, Asian, sushi,sashimi, roasts, everyday something a little different. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I was happy with the wine and my daughter very happy with the mocktail pina colada at the swim up pool bar. The sunset bar and pool was good to visit. The main bar was good too, just doesn't have the same view as the sunset bar. We didn't dive but the dive centre looked very nice. The water sports were a bit lacking, it would be good if the resort could introduce some sailing options. This island is quite small ( 15-20 minutes to walk around) but that is what we wanted. Do not come to this island if you are after nightlife, motorised water sports, lots of people and action. We loved our stay at this beautiful island. Sand, sun, palm trees and the biggest decisions of the day when to snorkel and what to choose to eat!!
