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.

I went with my wife to celebrate my 20th anniversary. The place is like a dreamland. I stayed in overwater suite which was awesome . The view from the rooms or su deck was excellent. The waters were crystal clear with abundance of marine life . we spotted baby sharks, rays octopus besides variety of fishes. The food was very delicious and spread was marvelous. Vegeterians need to check with resort, though we spotted bhindi, palak man and daal. The staff one to all very courteous. They were very sweet to allow me an early check in and a slightly delayed checkout.
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.

We didn't have high expectations on this trip because we booked last minute and couldn't afford the 5* resort this time of the year... Oh we were pleasantly surprised :)
Reservations before our travel were very responsive and sent us detailed information (Thx Hassan F.); they also moved us to our Water Villa one day before our transfer day! THANK YOU, wonderful surprise for our honeymoon.
The Buffet was the BEST we've ever had, so DELICIOUS, different menu at every meal... seriously, better than a la Carte restaurants. Worthy of a 5* restaurant, Bravo chefs! Our waiter Tauwheed quickly warmed up to us and had excellent service.
Service overall was just WONDERFUL; the local staff were the most friendly and with the biggest smile :)
Maintenance and renovation ongoing which shows a real care for the continuous customer service and the resort.
Thank you Meeru... We will come back as soon as we can :)

We travelled as a family and were a bit apprehensive about the rooms because the online photos were not too impressive given the price. But thankfully, we were all pleasantly surprised with the condition and aesthetics of the rooms. We were very happy with almost everything and the staff. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and felt sad to leave such a beautiful island, resort, fantastic house reef, friendly staff, good service and high standards.
It was a wonderful experience & we look forward to returning.

We were extremely happy with our overwater bungalow, with tropical fish right at our doorstep. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful, and we didn't want for anything in our comfortable bungalow. We would highly recommend this resort to anybody.

When we plan to visit Male and looking at the few places pls not to consider any negative reviews by the Toursit on this property. This place and service is better than what they have mentioned/shown in the website.
When i first openend my eyes in the morning and walked out to the balcony, all my daily stress from work just dissipated into mid air as I absorbed the beauty of the surreal island...and with the wooden staircase leading to the crystal clear waters right from my own balcony, nothing could be more perfect!! It was just how I imagined paradise would be...and when night falls, the twinkling stars in the sky takes over the beauty and tranquility of this island and I even managed to see a shooting star during my stay. Just too amazing for words...
This region is home to the national capital Male, the international airport, and a high concentration of resorts. The good news is that the pace, serenity, and low key development of the islands is intact.
