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.

We have just had a week at the Taj and despite it raining at some point of every day, the experience was amazing...the rooms were awesome and staff so attentive, especially the dive centre, the resident marine biologist Jack made us all aware of the importance of the coral reefs with his weekly tutorial and daily snorkeling trips / feeding the stingrays... Thanks Jack for making the week so memorable
Everything during our stay was absolutely wonderful. The staff were attentive and very nice; the facilities and room were well maintained and beyond 5 star quality. Nothing but praises for the hotel and staff! Thank you for a truly memorable experience.
Its an amazing hotel but a long journey from male airport, you have to take a domestic plane from Male airport then a speed board. Perfect place for snorkeling, the ocean revive rooms are spacious and beautifully designed. You would love spending lots of time just laying back and enjoying the view from your room
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.

We had the amazing opportunity to spend our December 2013 Honeymoon at the Holiday Resort and Spa... Coolly welcomed with a fresh fruit juice!
It was the best holiday we've been on by water... From clear waters and white beach sand to a king size bed and ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL CUISINE!!!
Well worth the money we spent to be there and absolutely cannot wait to go back!

We were in the 2nd story of an overwater villa on the edge of the pier with nothing but ocean and sunset east of us. I can't recommend the overwater villa enough, unless you are trying really to save and want to stay beachside. Being able to see the sunrise, reef below, and sunset in the distance every day away from people passing by and bar music was really amazing.
We were literally the only Americans on the entire island, a rare breed in the maldives apparently because of the cost to travel and distance. But we couldn't have been more happy. We met a wonderful german couple and made a lot of friends simply by being present. We would recommend taking a day to do nothing and just enjoy / take pictures, then fill parts of each day with a few things to do. Don't overbook yourself in paradise!
Hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. They are able to speak English, Mandarin, tamil, dialects & Malay. Food at restaurant is alright. Like the jap restaurant the most. Hotel spa need to book in advance for any type of services.

This hotel is truly a piece of paradise on earth. it would be a perfect choice for honeymoon or a romantic getaway.
The only thing to keep in mind is to be ready to loose a LOT of money there if you want to enjoy your stay doing the activities you choose or having a privet dinner on the beach or going to the spa or just eating at their different restaurants.
