Really glad that we picked this island for our honeymoon! Complimentary dinner, champagne and fruit basket as part of the honeymoon offer just made our stay at this resort even better! Everything is terrific except the extra journey to the island is long, which involved a domestic flight and a boat ride. However the service was great that we had people handling the luggage throughout the transfer. Wished I knew this earlier then I would have stayed in Male for that night and did the transfer next morning. Interaction with other guests was minimum as we were told that the island is popular amongst Russians and Germans. The island doesn't offer much entertainment but plenty of water sports and activities. We spent a lot of time at the bar drinking cocktails and using the free wifi as wifi are not available from the rooms. Overall a good experience! spectacular views and had some relaxing time on the island.

The Maldives are famous for diving and for good reason. The Kihaad dive staff was great, they planned excellent daily dives, helped us with our next level of certification, and provided very good equipment. Very safety conscious also. The resort is one of the more reasonable in the Maldives (cheap is not a word to use for anything there!) but was very comfortable, well maintained and staffed by really great people from the reception to the restaurants and bar to the room cleanup. The food was quite good and they accommodated the vegetarian with some special dinners. The selection gets a bit repetitive after a few days, but this place is a long way from anywhere, so it impressed me that they got so much fresh food brought in regularly. The resort takes up the whole little island, so there's not much to do if you tire of beach time, diving and other water sports. But this is a great place to take advantage of the underwater wonders. Even the house reef, easily accessible by snorkeling, has lots to see. We saw morays, sting rays, octopi, eagle ray, jillions and jillions of reef fish, turtles and a shark (just a reef shark, but impressive nonetheless!). And then the dolphins came to swim with us while we were scuba diving. A great experience!

This is perhaps one of the best experiences and hotel that have been to. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable! Many activities are available to keep you busy and happy. The only downside is that it is expensive, though you are in Anantara, so don't expect any less than perfection.
