My son found and booked the resort, I'm glad he did as it was lovely, we've never been so relaxed and will defiantly go back again. The resort is small and intimate and everyone knows your name, staff are helpful and always polite.
I would recommend Gangehi to couples and family's alike!
We stayed for 7 nights and found the hotel & staff were brilliant.. Very comfortable & close to beach & pools....definately stay there again. The food at all the restaurants was fantastic as was the service.
Our recent 8-day stay at Bandos could not have been more perfect. We had read mostly encouraging reviews about Bandos with the odd negative remark or two. From our perspective, any negative remarks are whack. There was nothing but top quality service, facilities, cuisine, you name it. Our transfer from the airport was quick and easy. Our check-in was quick and easy with extremely friendly and helpful staff. We booked all-inclusive and we found the quality of the food outstanding with excellent options and selections at each meal (shout out to Visam of the wait staff who went out of his way to look after us; what a hard worker he is; we didn't get to say goodbye as he was on emergency leave; hope your mom is ok my friend).
The grounds were exceptionally manicured and friendly workers were constantly raking and pruning to keep the grounds nice. Very nice gym facility with good weightlifting equipment (dumb bells, bench and squat rack, chest fly machine). We upgraded to a beach villa and wow! just wow! Highly recommend a beach villa. We were in 143 which was a great spot 20 paces from the sea. And every photo we took (with our fancy iPhone cameras) were like postcards. The scenery is unmatched.
We had read negative comments about the condition of the coral reefs but they are fine. There was no disappointment with the condition of the reefs and snorkelling is brilliant!
We highly recommend staying at Bandos! Well done to the entire team at Bandos!

Picturesque and stunning setting, surrounded by turqoise waters and serviced by friendly and professional personnel. Everything about our stay was absolutely excellent. We will never forget our week in paradise at Velassaru. Services and restaurants rather expensive but you're paying for quality. Highly recommend to anyone looking to relax in a beautiful place

we arrived at the resort near noon and our room was not ready upon our arrival as check-in time was 2pm. We were given complimentary lunch buffet while waiting for our room. The staff working at the resort were very friendly and helpful. They made effort to make the guests feel comfortable and we saw that they do their best to ensure the resort are kept clean as rooms were tidied twice a day. Overall it was a very pleasant experience staying at Kurumba Maldives. Their warm hospitality together with the great conditions of the facilities at resort made our holiday very enjoyable and memorable.

"They Sure gave it their all- and Credit to um!!!"
Chaaya Reef is a small Atoll in the Ari Reef chain.
Service: 5*. Seriously: from the Table Service, to the room cleaning, Turn Down service at night, Pool Service, Scuba experience...Wow!!! The people have a Strong Work Ethic. when something isnt right, and you tell them- you almost feel bad since they care so much.
Rooms: Your in the middle of the Indian Ocean on a Atoll. Its pretty much in the middle of no-where. They build nice Strong Concrete small buildings with either 1 room or 4 rooms. Easily survived the strong winds we experienced. The resort provides power adapters. Make sure you have 220Volt items! (European voltage). They were very clean, and very quiet. We slept GREAT! Beds are a bit on the firm side. Guys will LOVE it...Girls will moan unless they are sporty.
Food: concerned when we read the food reviews on a few sites. But the Hotel did Really well. Very European style with a large number of Indian offerings. Not an indian restaurant frequenter- but i found the selection quite nice. If i felt like European food- No Prob, and if i wanted some local/indian type food. No Prob. I was worried about my wife and stomach bugs- but No Prob!
Scuba: The house reef here is the best in the Maldives. If you scuba, its AWESOME! They take care of the reef and it sure pays off
Transport: We took the boat vice the plane and was fun. We liked it.
Bottom-line for us: We'd go back. Hotel staff is Great, rooms comfy and quiet, and scuba- WOW!!
This was an amazing holiday. Although not officially a luxury resort, Thundi Guest House's luxury lies in its location, beautiful nature everywhere, and it's people. The staff were fantastic, they could not do enough for us. We asked for hammocks and so they built two for us and hung them from trees situated near the beach that was just outside the guest house. We asked for a table to be set up on the beach so www could have our meals there, so they did precisely that. Any arrangements we needed making they did. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff. They were truly fantastic. Thunder's luxury lies the beauty of its people and the island itself. This was a great holiday and we are keen to go back.
