Stunning location and island - the only issue was the location of our villa which was towards the back with lots of trees and foliage.

Rather bug island for Maledives - offering lots if cool activities including a small 9-hole golf course. Thus, perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself. Villas are if highest standard. Staff super friendly. Only downside is the long journey, including a second leg to Gan.
