Awesome Trip to Maldives

Posted 30-May-2015 on Orbitz
Has a great time in the Water Villa. Snorkeling right off your room balcony. Went deep sea fishing, etc. Also took a trip to Male. Wanted to take a day trip to Kuda Bandos but was not able to as other people did not sign up.

maldives- holiday on a sunny side

Posted 03-May-2015 on Hotels
Stay in Taj Vivanta was good. View from the room was awesome. From the room you can dive into the ocean. Kids snorkled near the coral reef. Overall a very good holiday, the best vacation we had so far!!!!

It was a very pleasant stay. Quite pricey for the amenities and things to do on the island.

Beautiful island, great hotel

Posted 25-Jan-2015
Pros: Its on a beautiful secluded island that provides a good balance between privacy and things to do.
Location: Snorkelling is great, and the daily stingray feeding is a highlight. You can see sharks, eels, and other fishes at the feeding too!!
Our flight arrived late at night, but the staff waited for us and provided us with a free speedboat transfer. This was good as it meant we didn't have to spend a night a Male and transfer to the island the next day. The island is small but beatiful. Snorkelling is great and the marine life is amazing. Good options for activities, and food is good too. Overall a very good experience.

Great self contained resort

Posted 19-Apr-2014
Pros: Luxurious rooms, great service, very good multi- cuisine restaurants. Pristine green-blue waters around the island- a heaven for snorkelling.
Cons: Nothing really. Food and drinks are quite expensive, but is comparable to similar Maldivian resorts.
Location: Snorkelling, other water sports, Spa, diving.....
Marvellous beach villas with all the comforts you could expect. Taj hospitality, which is faultless.

the hotel is dated.it is like a 80s hotel.very basic facility. beach is dirty. the food is worst with the most expensive price(a plate of noodle costs 43 dollar, i understand maldives price is high so actually i would not mind to pay for the expensive price if it is nice,but you could not believe how bad the food was,i could cook much better myself).it is a rip off. the restaurant s much more expensive than one and only and four seasons in maldives. management is not helpful and rude.I feel so sorry for people there for their honeymoon.

This hotel is taj hotel, suppose to be amazing service, the guy that escorted us to our room didn't even offer to carry our hand bags, but wouldn't leave the room unless we have him tip, almost like he was begging for tip extremely low class, also a bald guy walk up to us by the pool telling us we have to check out, when we told him manager said we can have our room until 6 pm, he was arguing and raising his voice in front of the other guests saying that we are wrong, so I got upset and told him to go and double Cheka with his manger and he left with a bad attitude to cone back and say we were right, not even apologizing, hotels should never have people like tear 2 work in service, they should be in the back never interacting with guests. Everyone else at the hotel including the chefs were very nice

Nice resort for a relaxing break.

Posted 19-Oct-2013
Pros: Staff were very friendly and helpful, staff were made up of local Maldivian nationals, Sri-Lankan, Japanese and Europeans.
Cons: The main bar area layout could be improved to make it more inviting to guests. The centre of the floor was taken up by an enormous raised dance floor.
Location: The 50min fast boat ride to Male or the airport makes for a long day if you are considering an excursion, especially if the seas are a bit rough.
Great location if you want a relaxing break. As with most of the Maldives island resorts, it is a long way from anywhere so you are reliant upon the facilities available to entertain yourself. The resort has 62 rooms and caters mainly for couples. The pool area is a little short on available sun lounges for the guest numbers. Diving was well catered for and the island even had its own wreck & reef to dive on less than 50m from shore.
