Excellent ResortPosted Oct 8, 2014
Pros: The resort service staff were warm and helpful
Cons: I was somewhat disappointed with the quality of food offered during the buffet style dinner
The Royal Island Resort & Spa provides splendid beachfront just outside your villa style room. I very much enjoyed my walks along the beach surrounding the island and breathtaking views of the sunset. Snorkeling on site was wonderful, especially around the service jetty pier and the reef areas that surround the island. Royal Island Resort & Spa also provides excellent indoor recreational facilities including table tennis, badmington, racquetball & squash.... especially useful on a rainy day.

Nice hotel, but nothing standoutPosted Aug 6, 2014 on Hotels
Nice hotel, but the buffet food was not standout. The a la carte food was better. All activities were expensive, but that is probably the case with every hotel in the Maldives.

Romantic Beach ResortPosted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Atmosphere - peaceful and you can always find a place to hideaway from other ppl on the island. Beach front villas and cocktails!
Cons: Would like if the hotels indicated the transfer time from Male international to the resort. Then I would have planned my connecting flights better.
Really glad that we picked this island for our honeymoon! Complimentary dinner, champagne and fruit basket as part of the honeymoon offer just made our stay at this resort even better! Everything is terrific except the extra journey to the island is long, which involved a domestic flight and a boat ride. However the service was great that we had people handling the luggage throughout the transfer. Wished I knew this earlier then I would have stayed in Male for that night and did the transfer next morning. Interaction with other guests was minimum as we were told that the island is popular amongst Russians and Germans. The island doesn't offer much entertainment but plenty of water sports and activities. We spent a lot of time at the bar drinking cocktails and using the free wifi as wifi are not available from the rooms. Overall a good experience! spectacular views and had some relaxing time on the island.

AwesomePosted May 8, 2014 on Hotels
One of the best holidays I have ever had. I planned my honeymoon there and there was not a single opportunity for dissappointment. Just perfect. The honeymoon dinner by the beach was lovely aswell. Very courteous staff and always willing to help. I stayed by the beach (room 105) and really loved it. We will visit again. Love. Adwaita & Sreevidya

Island-wide hotelPosted Sep 6, 2013
Pros: Individual beach villas with separate beach peace, affable staff
Cons: Change beef cooking.
Location: Island is located in the sea, you can go to fishing, diving, all within the island or close to it
Island and hotel Island is beautiful: a lot of trees, white sand on the beach. Two restaurants. Individual beach villas. Gym is present, good-equipped for hotel. Animals Here you can find: birds, crabs, lizards, insects (bugs, ants, mosquito), snakes (yeah, I've seen one), a lot of different fish (jellyfish (0,5m diameter!), sharks, full-colored fish) Rooms Rooms are beach villas (some of them are individual, others are combined with 2 rooms in 1 physical house). Beach villa has two exits - one to inner island road, another one - to the individual piece of the beach. Every day we found 4-6 ants in the room (we didn't ever keep doors open): 1-2 big flying ants, 2-3 medium size ants and 1-2 ants of small size. So you can find ants of any size you like :). Bathroom has a half-opened roof: half of the bathroom is under the roof, second half (where the shower is) is under the sky. Wall at the roof-less part is about 2 meters high, so if you are tall.. Strange experience. Food. Food is different. Beef, fish, chicken, seafood, salads, vegetables and fruits, desserts. A lot of curry-filled food. Almost all beef is tough. Just once we had good-cooked beef meat. Fruits has very lite taste, up to tasteless at all (except pineapples). Dessert are awesome :)
