The resort is beautiful and the experience in Maldives was excellent. As a feedback / suggestion the staff could clean the sand more regularly as still some bags have been found in water. In order to avoid soiling the water and further protect the wilderness under the bungallows the staff could mention "no soap or chemicals" on the deck showers.

The best leisure vacation we had. We are there from 30th December 2015 to 3rd January 2016. We stayed in a the villa on the sea and we took a all inclusive package. Its very costly but worth every penny. Their staffs are great and very co-operative.

I waited for a few months to write this review to see if my opinion changed...it did not. The Island is not designer wear and golden beaches. It is an understated island resort that is probably four star in it's amenities and quality of materials. Hollywood stars will not go to this island as "who would want to stay in...
