Actually everything is said in earlier posts. Paradise feeling with great food - mix of Italian and Local.

I wish it was possible to give more than 5 stars. We spend an amazing week in this paradise. Everthing there is so beautiful. The hotel, and the island, Maintained at a very high level. The staff was the nicest we ever met. We have been lucky to choose this resort.

Me and my Girlfriend have been 3 weeks on Gangehi, which we’ve been told is quite unusual as most people stay shorter. However, we never got boring. While being not diving for almost 26 years, I’ve decided to start the PADI OWD. I was so impressed that I continued with Nitrox and the PADI AOD. Mark consulted me in the...

We went to Gangehi in September 2016 and had fantastic weather without any rain and only sun whole day. But Hotel staff made us aware that the previous 3 weeks before we arrived it was raining all day long. Take this into account when you plan vacation time. We had Deluxe overwater villa with full board which was absolutely great!...

Over the water villa very nice. Great food, less people than other islands we have been to. Many Italians on staff, so the Italian food is good. The sound of water is very gentle and we were able to sleep very well. The island has its own time zone which is one hour ahead of male time.
