We went to Gangehi Island from 28th July to 4th August for our honeymoon. What can I say....paradise! We stayed in a beach villa, number 13. We asked for no 10-14 after seeing somebody elses review on here, as it is far enough away from reception, bar and sea plane jetty. The villa was amazing, huge bed, air con and...

The island is fantastic and relaxing; really gorgeous but if traveling with family like us, should come prepared. Even bottled water on first day of check out is not free. Everything comes with an extra cost (read; expensive plus government tax plus city tax plus service charge.) Some of the staff are really friendly and accommodating; others depends on their...

Hotel reception take little interest in this is and say it's Sea Plane company issue, but I said we pay the Hotel Resort; not Sea Plane Company, still nothing you can...

Thanks for taking time to write a review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. You missed to write that the management offered you a dinner in our a’ la carte restaurant to apologize about the delayed delivery of luggage even if it does not depend on the hotel. There is one seaplane company in Maldives and...

By the far the most expensive place I have ever stayed in in all my years of travelling but worth it. Was there coz I was searching for a place that costs below S$100 per night and this was the only place that came up. Even though it was slightly more than $100. But seeing the photos I was hooked!...

We booked this resort for our 2nd year anniversary simply because the island looks cute and small.. We believe that it'll be quite underrated. So yes indeed it is underrated! We tried 3 different rooms. 1. Deluxe overwater villa is our absolute favourite - interior Is minimalist but classic. 2. Standard overwater villa - our least favourite, lack of privacy...

I went to Gangehi Resort with my sister. We both really enjoyed staying there. If we could, we would extend our stay forever. The best part was their staff, not too much, not less. They're friendly but keep ur personal time. Another best bit was their food, Plenty of choices! I just gained weight! Really recommended!

This resort is perfect. Its clean, beautiful and the wildlife is amazing. First trip to the Maldives and chose this island as we wanted somewhere quiet and away from it all. We stayed all inclusive in a beach villa, which I would thoroughly recommend. The island is very small but the service provided was excellent. Although the main restaurant is...

“The overwater villas are pricier but offer the best value because of the unbeatable view of the lagoon. They are also quieter.”
