Great self contained resort

Posted 19-Apr-2014
Pros: Luxurious rooms, great service, very good multi- cuisine restaurants. Pristine green-blue waters around the island- a heaven for snorkelling.
Cons: Nothing really. Food and drinks are quite expensive, but is comparable to similar Maldivian resorts.
Location: Snorkelling, other water sports, Spa, diving.....
Marvellous beach villas with all the comforts you could expect. Taj hospitality, which is faultless.

the hotel is dated.it is like a 80s hotel.very basic facility. beach is dirty. the food is worst with the most expensive price(a plate of noodle costs 43 dollar, i understand maldives price is high so actually i would not mind to pay for the expensive price if it is nice,but you could not believe how bad the food was,i could cook much better myself).it is a rip off. the restaurant s much more expensive than one and only and four seasons in maldives. management is not helpful and rude.I feel so sorry for people there for their honeymoon.

This hotel is taj hotel, suppose to be amazing service, the guy that escorted us to our room didn't even offer to carry our hand bags, but wouldn't leave the room unless we have him tip, almost like he was begging for tip extremely low class, also a bald guy walk up to us by the pool telling us we have to check out, when we told him manager said we can have our room until 6 pm, he was arguing and raising his voice in front of the other guests saying that we are wrong, so I got upset and told him to go and double Cheka with his manger and he left with a bad attitude to cone back and say we were right, not even apologizing, hotels should never have people like tear 2 work in service, they should be in the back never interacting with guests. Everyone else at the hotel including the chefs were very nice

Nice resort for a relaxing break.

Posted 19-Oct-2013
Pros: Staff were very friendly and helpful, staff were made up of local Maldivian nationals, Sri-Lankan, Japanese and Europeans.
Cons: The main bar area layout could be improved to make it more inviting to guests. The centre of the floor was taken up by an enormous raised dance floor.
Location: The 50min fast boat ride to Male or the airport makes for a long day if you are considering an excursion, especially if the seas are a bit rough.
Great location if you want a relaxing break. As with most of the Maldives island resorts, it is a long way from anywhere so you are reliant upon the facilities available to entertain yourself. The resort has 62 rooms and caters mainly for couples. The pool area is a little short on available sun lounges for the guest numbers. Diving was well catered for and the island even had its own wreck & reef to dive on less than 50m from shore.
