A good friend of mine recommended us Summer Island Maldives for our honeymoon and boy did we relish every moment of it. Everything about this place is great from our accommodation at the Water Villa to our meals at the restaurants to our snorkeling & stroll at the beautiful beaches, not to mention the beautiful sunset and sunrise. But what...

Week ago we come back from the best place we have ever visited. Maldives are truly amazing. Summer Island Resort was worth every penny. Island itself was small enough to walk across in 20 min and enjoying white beaches and pristine water. We stayed in water villa, which for us going to place like this was a 'must', and we...

My wife and I recently got married and were fortunate enough to spend our honeymoon on Summer Island. What can I say?

The island itself is very nice and quiet. It is a small island so you don't have to worry of walking far from the facilities to your villa. The staff are courteous especially the receptionists. Check in is also fast. They will give the copy of the activities you can do in the island such as snorkeling and all. You...

We wouldn't call ourselves experts but our trip to Summer Island was our sixth to the exquisite Maldives ... and possibly the best. It is a beautiful little island (420m long and about 100m wide) fringed by soft wide sands which shelve gently into warm waters. But all that is expected. What took us by surprise was the genuinely warm...

Hello

I was spending my vacation in summer island when a person drowned while snorkeling , the victim was brought on to boat however there was no one on board who was able to give effective cpr and it was complete havoc where the crew members shouted at one another and the victim was brought back to the resort where they had no AED facility nor a doctor. Neither of it was available and again after shifting the patient into a speed boat they took the victim to the near by resort , luckily from the island there was one x paramedic who knew to give cpr but already when he started it the victim didn't look like he had any life left in him . Because so much time was wasted without being attended and so much miscommunication that for no reason victim was brought back to an island where there was no doctor or AED and taking the victim from point A to point B and finally to neighboring resort point C took almost more than one hour .

The family members were helplessly looking at their deceased father and the rest of the guests where terrified .

We came to the resort having the assurance that a doctor is available twenty four seven with life supporting medical equipments in hand . We had an assurance as such and idea as such and we pay lot of money and yet get our health insurance scheme for the vacation .

Having witnessed all that has happened and how irresponsible the resort manager was regarding the matter and not even asking for forgiveness from us who was on the boat during the incident felt like we are being deceived and cheated .

No matter what , I would never visit that island again knowing that everything that's advertised is a big fat Greek lie .

A very poor management and in respect to life saving techniques no body was around and not a doctor was available and it was all shouting and screaming at one another and the manager itself did not know how to react and calm the people down.

A beautiful island like rest of the maldivain islands but noticed staff lacking service and no guidance and everything is in an auto run where no one cares about providing proper hospitality to us.

Thank you

Truly
