A week in paradise
We had an amazing stay at this hotel over new years: we booked the watervilla with pool and were not disappointed. Everything is brand new, the finishes are very nice and the room very spacious. The hotel was redone in Aug 2020, so the condition of all areas and amenities was sensational. The water and beaches are truly stunning, the photos don’t lie. The staff is extremely friendly and you really feel at home. The food was surprisingly good, especially if you enjoy Asian. There is hardly any need to visit the “extra” restaurants as the main one is great and has variety. There are plenty of activities to choose from even though you need to book as soon as you arrive as spots fill up quickly. Due to COVID the gym situation is a bit annoying and was usually fully booked as they only allow 3 persons in at a time, but i guess its part of the new status quo. We booked a couples massage and we must say the spa is really nice and the massage was excellent, fully recommend. In terms of price-value it is really a GREAT choice for Maldives. This was our first time, but we did a lot of research and really felt we hit the jackpot. The hotel is more geared towards adults, even though there were guests with children and they seemed to be enjoying themselves. Despite the fact the the hotel was near to fully booked for New Years, it does not feel full or crowded, which is great as we were really looking to quietly enjoy each others company. You wont go wrong booking at this place.

DON'T listen to any of the bad reviews. They will all be pompous picks who are used to getting their bum wiped for them. The place is amazing! Staff go out their way to make it the best time of your life. The food is great! I'm gluten free and the Mrs is a veggie and every meal time the chef would come out and show us around all the dishes pointing out what we can or can't eat and offering to cook something special if we wanted. It was our honeymoon and they gave us a secluded honeymoon dinner on the beach with champagne. The coral maybe dead but it is everywhere in the Maldives but we still saw sharks, turtles and sting rays floating about as we walked or swam around as well as loads of fish. The fact it's a small island was the best for us. It meant the whole place was never crowded even though it was always operating at maximum capacity while we were there. It was always very calm and tranquil. Best holiday ever. Totally recommend.

Whale shark
It was a long journey due to the transfer of sea plane, the waiting at the lounge etc. Plus the fact that the sea plane needs to fill to its maximum capacity, so we had to wait around for other passengers. about 3 hours wait at the lounge which is a waste of time, considering our trip is short, only 3 nights. Also, the sea plane has to alight other guests in another resort, thus, more waiting. By the time we reach the resort, we were tired and many precious hours lost.. Nice resort marred by some oversight as management doesn't pay attention to details. - Staff at restaurants are not so friendly, you have to greet them before they greet you. - It is a pity to see such a beautiful swimming pool over looking the stunning Maldivian sea with a few of the lounge chairs' cushion very visibly torn. You can even see the styrofoam coming off. - The staffs kept all the cushions under plastic wraps even after the rain, and we have to ask for cushions for our deck chair. - Room was not properly cleaned. However, the whole trip was saved by the most endearing whale shark named Stephan, we saw during the snorkeling excursion, the only reason why we travelled all the way to South Ari Atoll. nothing else really matters. Thanks to Amanda, the Marine Biologist and her team, who have made an exception for us to go for whale shark excursion, even though there was no schedule of whale shark excursion during those 3 days while we were there.

Beautiful hotel & island. Only issue, cleanliness.
ROOM We stayed both the Beach Villa and Overwater Villa. Both villas were very beautiful, very spacious, and with an outdoor area, where you can relax and enjoy the views. I recommend trying both villas, as the experience differs. At the beach villa, you are between plants and trees, with the beach 10 meters away. At the overwater villa, it’s purely ocean view with a ladder to access the ocean. The island is absolutely beautiful; fantastic nature. CLEANLINESS This is where we were very disappointed at the hotel. We stayed in our overwater villa on one of the days, while the room service came in to clean the room. We were shocked to see how the room was made up. There was no cleaning done in the room, only the bed made up. In the bathroom, the room service wiped the counters dry with one of our used facial towels. He also swept the floor of sand with a broom. He then rinsed our used coffee mugs, in the bathroom sink with no detergents, only fingers and water. Then dried the mugs with a towel, and returned them to the minibar cupboard. This by far was the only, and worse experience at the hotel. And we wouldn’t have witnessed it, had we been out swimming. SERVICE All in all, the service is very good, and the staff is friendly; especially at the reception and bar. At the main hotel restaurant, the waiters are frowning most of the time, but they are polite and can be nice. Definitely recommended to friends.
