Amazing experience. I was amazed by the organization of everything. We were nicely greeted at the arrival, felt like we arrived in paradise. We didn't have to worry about the luggage. I can't describe in words how our villa looked like, with a suspended bed outside, over the pool, 15 m from the water. When you walk on the island, is like walking in another world and you can choose to do it by feet or by your own bicycle. There are 4 restaurants to choose from, with food to satisfy any desire. The staff is incredible nice and ready to help when needed. Our butler, Dave, took care of everything and informed us of anything we wanted. If there was a "problem", a guy arrived in max 5 min to take care of it. They give you a free of charge snorkeling equipment that you can use whenever you like. An important thing that they provide is a good and fast connection of the internet. What we also liked is that when we left the island with the last seaplane, we had to wait 6 more hours till our flight, and free of charge we stayed in their lounge till it was time to go for the check-in. For us, there are no negative things. If we return to the Maldives, for sure, we will choose again Emerald.

Hotel's Favourite
We just came back from our holiday and already miss the leisure days in the Indian ocean. As “Maldives addicted” we have stayed in so many hotels since 2005 that we just stopped counting at some point. I don’t write a review every time but this time it’s a must. First of all, I want to say a big thank you to the GM Mr Srikanth Devarapalli, a very kind man and true professional! Thanks to him we had the chance to visit this beautiful island and to experience one of our greatest holidays. What makes the resort so special: 1. All the island is with such a lush greenery, it’s like a jungle. At the moment you arrive you are captured by its beauty. 2. Fantastic house coral reef. It starts from the main restaurant and you can enjoy right up to the end of the water villas. Full of fishes, sharks, two times we saw a turtle and lobsters hiding under a big coral. Exceptional! 3. Restaurants! Every day different options but still we were every day having lunch in our favourite Beach grill! You have the shadow in the sunny days but in the evening all tables are out on the sand for a dinner under the stars/palms :) There are two restaurants which are nestled in the “jungle”, surrounded by bushes and trees - Le Asiatique and Amazonico. In the Asian we witnessed a great show at the Teppanyaki- the cook was juggling with a raw egg, then threw it into his hat and pulled out a chicken instead. The kids were watching with their mouths open all the time. The South American restaurant is Amazonico, delicious food accompanied by the sounds of latin music and guitars. I have to say that everywhere we had so so delicious meals, very beautifully arranged. Nearly most of the evenings there were organised special private dinners on the beach. The preparation starts from the afternoon when the staff are carving the shapes of mantas or hearts in the sand, then light them up and it looks really majestic in the night. The cinema under the stars was also booked almost every night. A big sofa bed is moved on the beach and the screen is put in front so only the ocean is behind. They also organise once per week a Gala dinner at the main restaurant. We were very surprised as trust me not in every hotel they put so much efforts. All the tables from the restaurant were put outside on the beach, decorated, there was a live music too, kids running around, it felt like a New Year’s Eve party. Grill stations were also settled and there was a big choice of fish and meats and whatever you may wish. 4. We had an outstanding accommodation. The villas are large, comfortable, always clean. The designers have made a very clever decision about the roofs of the houses, also there are flowers on the walls even of the water villas. We enjoyed so much riding on the bicycle around. 5.The Spa is absolutely fantastic. All massage rooms are actually very exotic cabanas with names of flowers, I even had the feeling that I am somewhere in Malaysia... 6. Kids club fortunately is open all day, no closures at all. They were full with activities. Our younger child was so happy every time I took him there. The kids enjoyed movies with popcorn, making bracelets, feeding the fish on the jetty, making cocktails and pizzas and so many other games. 7. Something that impressed me very much was the hotel application on the phone. Once on your phone, you can actually do everything from here - book and cancel reservations, view the menus of the restaurants ( even the kids menus are different ) , get all the info you need. I remember something similar, this high quality, on brand new cruise ship two years ago, so much things, so easy to work with. I look at my review now and I understand it is probably the longest “speechless” opinion but I really wanted to share all this stuff. I highly recommend this property because it is new, modern, with a very good management in all departments, great food, rich wine and drinks selection. All in all the hotel combines everything that I have ever seen in the other hotels, they didn’t miss anything. Before I finish I would like to thank the people who took a good care after us- Latheef, KD, Borhan and our butler Dave. We were very happy to meet the head sommelier Nash and his team from Zimbabwe, such nice people. All waiters in the Grill were perfect too. Thank you and can’t wait to come back!

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Emerald and we had the most amazing time. We told ourselves this would be a once in a lifetime trip, but now we have promised ourselves we HAVE to go back! The staff, service, food, amenities and water sports activities were top notch! Emerald offers a honeymoon package for free that includes a free massage, a beautiful private ocean front dinner, and a dolphin cruise- all of which were so wonderful. We stayed in a water villa with a pool and would 100% stay there again. Inaz, our housekeeper, came several times per day to make sure our room was clean and that we had fresh towels. Kumar, our host, communicated with us daily and made sure to answer any questions we had right away. He made our lunch and dinner reservations & contacted us each day to remind us of our itinerary. We were welcomed so kindly everywhere we went. The customer service was beyond incredible. The emerald restaurants have a wide variety of drink and food options. The servers and wine stewards went above and beyond to ensure our dining experiences were perfect. We especially enjoyed meeting and getting to know Lee, one of the wine stewards there. He taught us a whole lot about wines and paired the wine perfectly with our meal selections. I could keep going on and on about how perfect our stay was. We HIGHLY recommend booking your stay at Emerald. You won't regret it! Thank you to ALL of the staff we had the pleasure of meeting. We are so grateful for you for making our honeymoon the absolute best.
