Just returned from 10 days all inclusive at Vakaru in a Water Villa and had a wonderful holiday. It is a solid 4 star hotel, and whilst the water villas are huge and definitely 4 star plus, the public areas are looking a little tired. However the service is universally excellent with the staff in the bar, restaurant and rooms... More

The island is a wonderful little piece of paradise. It is a small island with not much to do other than relax, enjoy your time under the sun and snorkel in their wonderful house reef. We had an over-water villa (which is the only way to savor the Maldives. If you want a regular garden villa, save yourself the money... More

We arrived in Malé to find rain, which seemingly was par for the course for our wedding. We were delayed in the sea plane (Trans Maldivian Airways) terminal for about 4 hours, before catching our flight, which had one stop, to the resort. On the one stop, the weather prevented us from leaving right away, and we were welcomed to... More

It was a great place. We took the water bangaloo which were very nicely decorated. They were also cleaned twice per day. The snorkling is great and we could easily spot some baby sharks which are not dangerous. We loved the food. The cuisine we had in our trip.
