Beautiful place.

Had a great experience staying over at adaraan. Everything was perfect except there were ants in the shower. One thing to note that they charge Mandatory transfer fees that cost 300 USD. There are cheaper ways to get there from airport but as its mandatory you still have to pay them for transfer.

Paradise indeed

Posted 19-Oct-2017
Pros: The proximity from the airport is perfect and not paying expensive seaplane fees. 45 min boat ride for two was 300 USD. Feels like a private island.
Cons: Old water bunglw REQ' an update.Can't believe paid so much for this old room. Address the ants/insects issue. FREE WIFI should be included.Imprv FOOD!
Location: Snorkel for hours, diving, canoeing, jet skiing, island hopping, spa, beach dinners, fishing, shark feeding, etc. Bring back private island excursion.
On our honeymoon from Canada, it was quite a journey to reach the resort. We traveled via Air Canada and Sri Lankan Air. Overall it took us 33 hrs to reach Male counting in a 12hr transit. Once we reached Male airport, as I read on prior reviews we headed on to the E2 counter for Adaaran to check in for the speedboat. We were asked to wait around the cafe for all guests to arrive.We were told that the boat would leave at 3:45 pm but we actually ended up leaving at 4:45 pm. Bought local SIM card from Oreedoo for internet (15 GB = $22 USD).Used only 8GB in 7 days. The 45 min speed boat ride was awful & scary as the tides were high & your in the middle of the ocean (do the math). We booked an all-inclusive water bungalow which was a dream come true esp with the glass floor! The condition of the room was NOT what we expected seeing that we are paying SO MUCH. The room was dingy & old, the washroom was dirty with ants and insects running everywhere & it smelled bad. The toilet flush did not work. After complaining about all this, mngmnt took care of it but the problems re-occurred. Day 2 the mngmnt did bed decor which should' v been Day 1. Besides that, our waiter, Safraaz was fantastic and took care of all our needs immedtly. We snorkeled, island hopped and had an over priced beach dinner (just for the sake of it)and the spa twice. Overall the resort was okay, the food also needs improvement and with more variety. The island itself is perfect for honeymooners & 1st timers.

Worth the time and money

Posted 07-Aug-2017
Pros: The view, the overwater rooms, cleanliness, organized and food.
Cons: More free activities: group snorkeling around the island, beach parties, social events, group dinners...
Location: nothing around, nothing to do. It's a private island.
Over all the resort was very nice. Water was clear, rooms were clean but be forewarned that 'all inclusive' is NOT all inclusive. You have a set menu with lots of exclusions and times, meaning you can only eat certain items and at certain times, all others you have to pay additional fees. Also internet is NOT free, which in the time and age especially with the high cost of this resort, it should be included. Lastly some staff were not so friendly and lack customer service while others were very nice and personable. All in all, we had a great time!
