  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Boring at rainy day . The hotel should arrange some entertainment there. Everything is expensive there especially the transport and no choice for other option . However the Food from ‘The Kitchen’ and service is excellent and don’t miss it.

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The staff are exceptionally kind and helpful. The resort has lovely beaches and adequate water activities to keep you entertained. The snorkeling was amazing! The prices for food and drinks should just be inclusive of taxes and service charges rather than the ++ format they use. All deck areas should be thoroughly cleaned as there were a few roaches and lots of ants crawling around in the evenings. The location in the south atoll is also good. They are very well equipped for boat safety.

Fun resort holiday with family

Beautiful property, all that one can ask for - activities, location, food options, gorgeous rooms. We enjoyed our 3 day stay with family and it made for a memorable trip. We had one issue however, one of our rooms had a lot of termites crawling all over after a rain shower hit the island. The reception guys informed us that this happens sometimes, although I found it unacceptable for a five star resort room to have termites! In all fairness, they management readily offered a room change and made it happen promptly as well. Thankfully the new room had no termites (or the treatment was done before we moved in). Overall, a recommended stay option.
