While the Maldives are beautiful and the views and coral life are beyond expectations the value for your money does not add up at this resort. We received none of the VIP perks which was disappointing but ok. What I really didn't like was the very limited drink options for all-inclusive, they had about 7 drink options and room service was an extra charge. The perk? We stayed at an overwater bungalow and the views and room were perfect.

Overwater Villas are amazing! The staff are very helpful and very responsive. Special thanks to Pramod, Hussain & Sara at the front desk, they are super helpful! Special thanks to Mr. Sattar who always goes out of his way to make us flowers and take beautiful photos of us and always smiling. Also great service at the restaurant. The staff are so amazing that make you feel at home!

I enjoyed my stay and the staff were very accommodating from pickup at the airport to the arrival at the resort. It's shoulder and COVID season, but I wish dining options were a bit more varied - buffets are nice but sometimes it's nice to wine-and-dine, especially at such a beautiful location! The overwater bungalow was fantastic and worth the trip to experience it. The outdoor deck was spacious, had nice furniture, and most importantly - shade! One suggestion for improvement is to add some plants or flowers to the outdoor deck - it would've made it feel a bit more lively.
