Firstly, I would like to say special thanks to the super awesome and hospitable staff of this resort for making our vacations a very memorable one.

This resort is about an hour's ride from the Male airport on a speed boat and the guests are given a very warm welcome at the resort by the staff.

The villas are nice and spacious which are serviced twice a day. The buffets served for breakfast, lunch and dinner have plenty of options and suit all kind of dietary requirements. The sunset views near the pool area are calm and relaxing.

Sami, Napoleon, Shree, Ali, Miro, Dani, Yahoo, Shireen, Shifana and all the staff deserve a special mention here.

I would recommend all the potentital guests to carry the sun screen in abundance.

What a magnificent experience. The island with its coral reefs and crystal clear waters is absolutely stunning. The views from the bungalows, breathtaking and the personnel, super friendly!!! Not to even mention the excursions with highly skilled and professional guides. From swimming with manta ray's and turtles to snorkeling with hundreds of colourful fish on the coral reefs. This was truely an unforgettable experience!

I always wanted to visit the Maldives to enjoy it's white sandy beaches and turquoise water, and this resort was exactly what I imagined the Maldives to be.
The beach Villa was cozy and clean, it gets a full cleaning in the morning and a refresh in the evening during our dinner.
The staff were above an beyond, they were always attentive and helpful, Sami the resort manager was always around checking on the guests to make sure everyone is happy.
He even helped us to extend our stay by contacting Qatar Airways Holidays staff.
You can borrow fins and snorkel masks from the Water Sports shop for free during your stay, the team is arranging free snorkeling tours around the house reef twice a day, the reef is mainly dead / bleached due to global warming, however it's still inhibited by vast variety of marine life. They also have a paid snorkeling trips to swim with turtles and manta ray.
The only thing I didn't like was breakfast, other than this everything was up to our expectations.
We really enjoyed our stay, and we definitely miss this place.

Room tip: If you have small children, avoid Water Villas as it's situated over rocks, your child can easily fall and get hurt
