Wonderful, romantic, beautiful resort
Posted 4 Jun 2019 on Hotels
Loved our stay at this resort. We had the all inclusive overwater villa with Jacuzzi.
- We stayed in Male the night before and didn't get our early morning (8.15am) seaplane transfer timing until 8.00pm. We were exhausted and wanted to sleep so it was frustrating.
- On our first morning we ate breakfast in the family restaurant and was abruptly told by a waiter that we can only eat in the adults only restaurant. We misunderstood and it was our misunderstanding but felt the waiter was telling us off instead of politely correcting us.
- The house spirits are all locally produced spirits. I wasn't expecting top shelf brands but also wasn't expecting the cheap local brands. I only drink vodka and it did not taste good. I ended up switching to cocktails to mask the taste and I must say the cocktails are delicious!
Now for the amazing stuff this resort has to offer:
- The staff. All of them (except waiter from first day). Our housekeeper, guest relations staff, bar staff, waiters, resort photographers were all so lovely.
- The Duniye Spa. If you only do one thing. Get the his and hers couple massage. It was so romantice and so beautiful. The best spa experience I have ever had. The ladies that did our massage were so good.
- The photoshoot. We had so much fun doing it and had such a laugh.
- The rooms, the infinity pool, the restaurants, food etc. All perfect.
Highly recommend this resort to everyone.
