Rooms have all modern amenities. There is an outside deck with steps going down into the shallow water. Splash around, swim or just laze around at your...

We thoroughly enjoyed the clear blue water and taking pictures of sunset. Service is generally good except for a bad encounter upon checkout. Quality of food served at Sea, Fire & Salt Restaurant was a disappointment.

The welcoming committee when we reached the island and the checking in process was excellent. Our deluxe room was roomy and comfortable and it...

I believe all resorts here in Maldives will be paradise, and I agree with the many wonderful reviews here regarding service and location and will not repeat. Food was not amazing, but not lacking in variety and quality. We really enjoyed the free snorkeling gear that allowed us to snorkel right out of our bungalow an any hours of during...
