This was 5th visit to Maldives in 6 years (each time a different Island). This island was more of a "resort" than a Robinson Crusoe experience, however that is not meant to sound like a bad thing. It just means a very large island (by Maldivian standards) with block paved roads, golf buggies and work vans, and a shopping area...

The resort is one of the biggest in Maldives so you'll be walking a lot! Or you can rent a bicycle for $3.75USD per day, per person. I was nervous when I read reviews about smoking but there aren't that many people who smoked. During may is also the less busier season so it was nice and quiet. The staff...

Hi everyone, this was my first trip to Maldives Island and I am 100% sure that I will return back to this specific resort. Everything was perfectly served and I can't imagine who can do it better.
