Do not think twice, just book, you wouldn’t regret
My stay @ Sandies Bathala was amazing. At first I was skepticle about having to pay extra for the seaplane, but I am glad that I did, it just made the experience even more exciting to be flown to a private Island. Can’t say enough good things about the staff, from the host to the cooks to the reception, everyone went over and beyond to make sure you were enjoying your stay. I stayed in the water villa for 2 nights. The villas are huge and in perfect spot to see the sunrise, different species and colors of fishes, corals, snorkeling etc. There is also an infinity swimming pool with a huge deck for parties. On Fridays there is a cocktail gathering to watch the Sunset. You can walk the entire Island in 5mins. Not to mention the food is amazing. Let me start with breakfast. There is a dedicated cook assigned to make your omelette or eggs and he is really good. The assortment of dishes for lunch and dinner is really good. From soups, to appetizers to the main course and dessert. I love fish and there was always 2-3 different recipes. I have to mention that I had a problem that required me to book additional nights just for security in case I couldn’t make my flight, but thank God I got my problem resolved and was able to make my flight. But I didn’t realize that the reservation I paid for through was unrefundable. Sandies reservation person together with the agent at got me my refund and I really appreciate that. Thanks to Didi, Iyaas and everyone.

Île à échelle humaine , les beach villas plus s’il vous plaît d’aménagement à l’intérieur. Un canapé ou 2 fauteuils et une table basse , des tiroirs de rangement . Il n’y a pas de télévision aussi .Un mini réfrigérateur est en place mais ne refroidi pas , les bouteilles en verres rentrent à peine dedans , des bouteilles d’eau en verre de format plus petit seraient utiles.Il y a un siège qui ne sert à rien si ce n’est en décoration. Vraiment la chambre n’est pas fonctionnelle. Il y a une très mauvaise connexion internet. De plus il faut constamment rentrer son identifiant pour devoir l’utiliser. On peut avoir une meilleure connexion mais elle est payante (!) jamais vu ça sur les maldives .. si ce n’est il y a 16 ans (!) Pour ce qui concerne la plage , il y a des chaises longues pour chaque villa . Les chaises ne sont pas remises à leur place par le personnel quand vous les laissez sur la plage , ou qu’il pleut . Les autres touristes vous embarquent vos chaises et votre table à l’occasion … on est bien dans un 4 étoiles .Les water villas sont beaucoup plus spacieuses, nous avons bien aimé l’espace de cette chambre . Dans la salle de bain , un séparateur à été mis en place entre la douche et le toilette . Celui ci est beaucoup trop court , il y a de l’eau partout. un rail aurait été bien plus judicieux. Deux points négatifs : le plancher extérieur vous noircit les pieds. Attention au drap blancs! Accès océan peu pratique et douloureux à la plante des pieds.

Très belle villa sur eau. Très spacieuse . Pas de télévision. Toute fois le lit aurait du être placé face à l’océan afin d’admirer la vue . Salle de bain correcte. Une douche à ciel ouvert aurait était mieux . La vitre n’est pas assez longue quand vous vous douchez , il y a de l’eau partout … un rail aurait été préférable. Sinon tout est beau . Les villas plage sont très très simple , peu de rangement , pas très fonctionnel a vrai dire . Pas de canapé, et pas de télévision comme sur les water villa , Repas très bons mais rien de fou . Équipe de plongée j’en sympathique. L’arrivée d’un Tour opérateur sur l’île afin de proposer des activités n’est pas envisageable à notre goût. Se faire racoler pour tel ou tel chose est vraiment désagréable.
