Stayed at the Manta Ray - Sunrise over the water bungalow suite. Private deck splash pool.
Rooms are inviting and extremely big with high ceilings stocked with expensive free extras like TWG Tea and Nespresso coffee. I love the fact that the hotel provides free still water too.
Service was wonderful. Everyone goes beyond what is required especially your dedicated host who arranges everything for you to do during your stay.
We have just had a week at the Taj and despite it raining at some point of every day, the experience was amazing...the rooms were awesome and staff so attentive, especially the dive centre, the resident marine biologist Jack made us all aware of the importance of the coral reefs with his weekly tutorial and daily snorkeling trips / feeding the stingrays... Thanks Jack for making the week so memorable
This is our 2nd visit the resort, and it was also wonderful staying at this time. We spent the days so comfortably. There are wonderful viewing, excellent ocean, and beautiful corals! The staff are pretty friendly, they must help you to stay enjoyable.
Especially, I recommend the hotel to people loving snorkeling. There are corals just under the bungalows, and we can go into the sea directly from the rooms.
Unfortunately, The boat crossing between Veli and Dhigu sails too many times, that could be seen from my bungalow and sometimes I feel it noisy.
Great location and quiet beach. The staff was not attentive enough but friendly at least. Breakfast was great. Other food were just ok. The food at the Japanese restaurant was disappointing. The room was right in front of the beach. The sound of the wave accompany your sleep.

The staff are all very friendly and welcoming. Helpful and also thoughtful. Very close to airport at about 25min speedboat ride. Love the activities and the restaurants there served really great food. But a bit pricey.

Spent 10 nights at Crystal Sands hotel and fully enjoyed our stay. Clean, only 2yrs or so old hotel with very friendly staff. The hotel organizes snorkeling, sand bank, night fishing programs, too at a reasonable cost. The Hotel manager helped us with all kinds of questions, I can only recommend this hotel to anyone.
South Male has a distinctly remote and less populated feel than its northern neighbour. Some of the best dive sites incorporate caves, sunken vessels, and protected marine areas. And for non-divers, snorkelling is on offer in the clear waters of a number of reef tops and edges if the currents are favourable. In addition, key surf breaks have been identified, with the best waves recorded from May-November and March-April. Several of the previously uninhabited islands now host luxury resorts.
