Great diving, fantastic staff, good resort

Posted Apr 14, 2014
Pros: The hotel is nice and comfortable, but it's location is its main attraction.
Cons: Food variety, but the food was good and portions were substantial.
Location: THE OCEAN! Go diving, swimming, snorkeling, sailing, surfing or anything else in the sea. And the beach was very good.
The Maldives are famous for diving and for good reason. The Kihaad dive staff was great, they planned excellent daily dives, helped us with our next level of certification, and provided very good equipment. Very safety conscious also. The resort is one of the more reasonable in the Maldives (cheap is not a word to use for anything there!) but was very comfortable, well maintained and staffed by really great people from the reception to the restaurants and bar to the room cleanup. The food was quite good and they accommodated the vegetarian with some special dinners. The selection gets a bit repetitive after a few days, but this place is a long way from anywhere, so it impressed me that they got so much fresh food brought in regularly. The resort takes up the whole little island, so there's not much to do if you tire of beach time, diving and other water sports. But this is a great place to take advantage of the underwater wonders. Even the house reef, easily accessible by snorkeling, has lots to see. We saw morays, sting rays, octopi, eagle ray, jillions and jillions of reef fish, turtles and a shark (just a reef shark, but impressive nonetheless!). And then the dolphins came to swim with us while we were scuba diving. A great experience!

Perfect honeymoon

Posted Nov 27, 2013
This was a wonderful experience for us. The views were perfect. The water was amazing. The reef around the island was a little bit lacking while snorkeling. However, near the dock and the watersports it was much better. We saw lots of beautiful fish and sea life. I recommend snorkeling with the mantas. It was breathtaking!! The food was a little different but not bad. The all inclusive package I think was a bit lacking as far as menu items and drinks. We decided to just purchase meals and drinks as needed. We were able to choose more variety and the cost was comparable to restaurants in the US. We stayed in 204. It is right in the sand. When you sit on the pitch you almost have a 180 degree view of palms, sand, and water. I recommend making sure you get one of the villas that's closest to the beach. It costs just a bit more but it is amazing. The island is very quiet as well. It is far enough from malé that you don't hear all the air traffic. Overall this was a great experience. I recommend this island, however, if we were to make a trip again, I think our adventure side would take us to another island. But only to enjoy their views and amenities as well. If we had a chance to visit all of the resorts on every maldive island, then we would most definitely return to kihaad. And we would enjoy every moment of it.

Amazing Exotic Resort

Posted Oct 21, 2013
Pros: Everything about the resort, the rooms, the exotic layout with the small jungle in the middle and the entire design of each facility is fantastic.
Cons: Everything is beyond great. There is nothing that needs improvement.
Location: Many water sports activities, snorkeling being probably the most important one, desert island dinners, cruises, dolphin watching, spa days, pool etc.
My stay at Kihaad was unforgettable and probably one of the most amazing vacations I have ever had. White beaches, clear waters, an entire island all for yourself and your loved ones, amazing facilities and design as well as great friendly staff that is there 24/7 to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
