Reviewed yesterday NEW

generally, this is a very luxury and enjoyed island for customers who enjoy a more private and quiet vacation experience. but for the "party guys", its may be a little bit too calm. the room , especially the beach bunglow is very impressive, but the water villa is not very comfortable during the season of strong wave

Simply one of the best resorts you'll ever stay at. The island is reached by a 75min seaplane from Male airport, upon arrival at Male you are greeted and shown to a private lounge with showers and drinks before getting on a seaplane - this is an experience in itself and significantly less bumpy than most long haul flights.

Title says it all! Won't write too much as my wife already did a great "editorial". Simply put, this place is perfect. Been a week back home now, and I'm not sure if it was all a dream. We definitely will go back. Flawless. I guess you can't get too wrong when you choose destination Maldives. But what they do...

Just back from this wonderful hotel. I have no negative comments whatsoever. Our sunrise water villa was beautiful, the food (especially evening meals) were of a very high standard, all the staff no matter what their job were friendly, professional, polite and happy. The quality of wines and spirits offered on the all inclusive were very good. The spa treatments...
