So many incredible things to write here.
First off the usual:
Good size room, incredible number of towels, huge & comfortable bed, 2 housekeeping per day, 2 refills of minibar per day, incredibly smiley and friendly staff, fantastic beach, safe for children, great number of activities, very good food, beautiful beach villa setup which is about 20-30 meters away from the water, quite atmosphere!
I am a hobby photographer and I did some shooting around the island. There was one very iconic location where I tried to get the perfect shot but some branches coming from behind were blocking the view little bit. I asked for Shaun, the General Director, and asked for 5 mins of his time. He responded immediately and set down with me. I showed the location in the photograph and just gave him a little advice about trimming the branches a little so everyone can get 'that' perfect shot. He immediately made a phone call. After he hang up he told me it will be done within 1.5 hours. And it was!!! My request was not exactly a cup off coffee but it was done in a blink of an eye. This is exactly the sort of stuff which makes you feel right at home!
Our whole experience at LUX was top notch! I can't thank Shaun and his team enough! LUX is now in our yearly program of Travel for many years to come.

Really glad that we picked this island for our honeymoon! Complimentary dinner, champagne and fruit basket as part of the honeymoon offer just made our stay at this resort even better! Everything is terrific except the extra journey to the island is long, which involved a domestic flight and a boat ride. However the service was great that we had people handling the luggage throughout the transfer. Wished I knew this earlier then I would have stayed in Male for that night and did the transfer next morning. Interaction with other guests was minimum as we were told that the island is popular amongst Russians and Germans. The island doesn't offer much entertainment but plenty of water sports and activities. We spent a lot of time at the bar drinking cocktails and using the free wifi as wifi are not available from the rooms. Overall a good experience! spectacular views and had some relaxing time on the island.

Perfect hotel close to the airport. Clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced. The staff at Hotel Octave are excellent - they collect you from the airport and drop you back off at no cost whatsoever and with a smile on their face. This involves a short ferry trip and then a short car journey therefore please tip - they're worth it!! We were upgraded and check in and check out was easy. Thank you to Hotel Octave for a nice first night in the Maldives!
Staff friendly, drinks expensive (same as anywhere in Maldives), excursions reasonably priced - night fishing was fun, boat transfer was expensive (same as anywhere in Maldives).
There are about 5 restaurants on the island, if your meals are included you can eat from the main lodge buffet - the food was nice enough, prices at the other restaurants aren't ridiculous.
Great island for snorkeling, we had tons on fish just 5 meters from our villas door.
Good for wildlife... Lizards, fish, reef sharkes, massive fruit bats that are out during the day.
Good place for all, we went as a family, obviously the majority of people are couples, although we did see more people holidaying on there own than we expected to see.
