We got upgraded to the deluxe overwater villa with sunset view and absolutely love every minute of our stay. The room is very spacious with a balcony that we could jump right into the crystal clear water. The view from every corner of the resort is like right out from a postcard with beach that stretch far out into the... More

We chose Gangehi after what seemed like an endless evaluation of the thousands of resorts in the Maldives from which one can select. We initially were going to book through expedia, but at the last minute changed our minds because we didn't like the flight choices. So, we booked directly through the resort website and then through the airline. We... More

When you dream of a tropical island where the place is beautiful---both above and beneath the water---the people are friendly and the food is good, this is where you want to be. What we enjoyed the most is the snorkeling. Marine life is literally at your doorstep. The fish swim up to the shore, even baby sharks. The reef is... More
