Quiet resort with beautiful landscape

Posted Dec 29, 2016
Pros: Quiet resort with beautiful landscape.

Excellent for honeymoon

Posted Dec 12, 2016
Excellent for honeymoon! This resort is much more beautiful than its picture! All staff were nice! Food was tasty and high quality! One negative comment is that most of their house reef and coral are dead! If you want to see a more beautiful sea life, you need to have a boat trip snorkeling tour!

Amazing resort, perfect for snorkelling

Posted Nov 19, 2016
Amazing resort, very small and very bespoke. Internal gardens designed very well. Room was spacious and great views. Great location for snorkelling and staff were super friendly. Even the General Manager made an effort to speak to us!

Heaven on Earth!

Posted Sep 12, 2016
Pros: EVERYTHING!
Cons: Room service. They didnt change the bedsheets for a week we were there, and they didnt replace our bathrobes when they took the used ones away.
Just amazing, every thing is beautiful, so much so thats unreal! Staff are soo polite and helpful, food is exceptional and also Halal which was an important point for us. All sorts of drinks and snacks and all different facilities. Not crowded and enough privacy! Just wonderful!

Great honeymoon hotel

Posted Aug 26, 2016
This was a beautiful, serene, quiet resort. Service was excellent and food was delicious. My only comment is that this is a very quiet resort with not much to do in the evenings. If you're looking for more to do this wouldn't be the resort for you to stay at. We had a lovely time.

Incredible Hotel

Posted Aug 10, 2016
This hotel is fantastic. Highly recommend staying at the hotel. For our trip we tried to utilize Expedia's best price guarantee claim form but it was not submitting so when I tried to resolve it despite the agents acknowledging that their systems might not have been working due to a system update I was out of luck. Customer service for the resort was great though and I would expect if I had worked with them they would have been more helpful in working toward a resolution. Definitely will return to the resort and recommend you should to but I will be booking direct for all future trips.

Paradise in the ocean

Posted Jul 12, 2016
Pros: The food at the buffet each meal was fantastic. Adults only No Shoe policy Well priced activitys
Cons: Some of the fun activities like crab racing and info nights start at 9.30 pm, for us as we dived and snorkelled all day this wa to late
Location: a quick 20min seaplane ride from Male international airport so perfect location. All activities are on or from the resort.
Great resort for getting away from it all, no motorised buggys or even bikes on the island. Small in size only approx 90 rooms so even when the resort is fully booked at times it feels like you have the island to your self
