"Excellent resort, beware extra $$ for seaplane"
Great resort experience! We went on our honeymoon and weren't disappointed. This is an Italian centered resort, with most guests being italian. However, all staff spoke fluent English. We did full board, which includes all meals, and that's the best way to go. Good variety of food. Rooms were clean and had good basic amenities, not a luxury resort, but very comfortable. We had two cockroaches in our room that we had to remove, but otherwise very clean. Beaches are beautiful. Unless you get the beach villas, you need to use the public beaches (we got the garden villa). Beaches were not too crowded, so it's not an issue. Main complaint is that you need to use a sea plane to get to the resort from the airport, and it costs a lot ($400 per person). Our seaplane got delayed, so we had to sit in the terminal for 3 hours after arriving in Male, which was very inconvenient. Not the fault of the hotel, but something to be aware of. Otherwise, we loved the experience - might get bored if you stay beyond 3-4 days, as it's a small island, but great place to relax!

"phenominal cuisine and laid back resort"
Fantastic peaceful and relaxed! The coral reef has taken an el Nino beating but the fish life is still abundant. The facilities are wonderful and the staff is always attentive to your needs. It felt very personal and welcoming. Arrange for a snorkel or dive excursion to the nearby Conrad reef which is out to sea further and therefore experiences cooler water temps. El Nino didn't hit that one as hard and there is good coral there. Global warming is for real folks. This resort was fantastic.

"Huge Island, great service, food variety"
While this resort is quite expensive, it is cheaper than many of the other resorts of this caliber in Maldives. The main selling point for me was the size of the island and the variety of food we get to eat. I am a fussy eater, so was a great joy to see dedicated Italian and Indian restaurants with fantastic room server 24/7. The spa is probably the best in the country and we were super happy with it. We stayed in the Infinity Pool Villa which was great, although don't expect much privacy as people will be snorkeling outside your room. We had a private butler and everyone was super friendly and accomodating! All in all a fantastic experience, would definitely recommend!

"Stunning resort"
I was almost put off going to this resort by some reviews on tripadvisor stating that the staff weren't interested in anyone but Italians. This is an Italian owned resort. There are a lot of Italians there as a consequence. However, not for one moment did we feel any less treasured than any other guest at the hotel. The staff are all helpful and very friendly. Our waiter, Rasel (apologies for spelling) was brilliant. The island is tiny. The resort is beautiful, utterly idyllic. We had a beach villa, which was fabulous. The buffet restaurant produced superb fresh food every day with loads of options and variation. The fish was superb. The chefs were Bangladeshi and Italian. I didn't have much Italian food, but it was of a very high standard. We didn't feel the need to use the a la carte restaurant over a four night stay. The curries were excellent. The choice for breakfast was a little limited, but that is a very minor grumble overall. We'd decided to go all-inclusive which proved to be fantastic value for money with a reasonable choice of wines and an excellent choice of cocktails and liquors. The sea plane transfer from Male is expensive, but amazing and worth it as a special treat.

"Nice hotel, part of LHW."
Relatively new hotel, 2 years old. Food: Good choice for the breakfast buffet. Lunch/dinner: plenty of choices. We opted for the a-la-carte menu on almost every night, except the New Year gala and a couple of special nights such as ''lobster night'', etc. The menu provides plenty of decent priced items and good quality food, well prepared. Drinks: a bit on the high side, depending obviously on where you live. For us 9USD for a beer seems a bit steep, but in other parts of the world, Scandinavia or Singapore, it might look like a bargain. Room: Spacious, a bit noisy on windy nights, but I guess all water villas are like that. Mini-fridge: was rarely refilled properly, we had to call reception and the butler a couple of times. Toiletry: again, they forget about refilling with shower gel and shampoo. Dive-center: 683USD for a scuba dive course: again, a bit on the high side, when you can do this in Europe for about 300Euro. But definitely worth a dive as the reef if amazing and full of sea-life. Speaking of which, you can see reef sharks, turtles and stingrays just outside your room! All in all a good experience
