Fantastic! Besides amazing infrastructure the staff goes beyond to make your holiday perfect. Another upside that made our trip special was booking with tropicsurf. We had a consistent support and the surfing was not to forget. Special thanks to Gaugeric, Maldha, Shara, Josh and Fiona!!! ;)))
"Hope to visit again soon!"
We stayed in a superior water villa for 3 days. Most of the time it was cloudy and rained in the evenings. But that did not stop us from having a good time... the food was awesome and we were made to feel special each time we went for a meal. Everyday had different varieties.The Japanese restaurant was very good.. The spa treatments and the spa rooms were very relaxing. Special mention to Ramu from The bar at Dhigu...who made us feel most welcome and made the best cocktails I've had so far. The only drawback was that the housekeeping services was not that great.
"Nice stay and beautiful setting but some glitches"
We spent 3 nights there for our 42 anniversary. The setting and the room is as beautiful as the brochure! What was disappointing was the little things. You are transported from the airport by the hotel's speedboat that takes nearly an hour. I had written a week before our visit to see if we could spend some time in Male on our arrival and take the speedboat to the resort later that day and I was assured that we could do so. But on arrival, no one at the hotel's airport office knew anything of my request and when I persisted I was told that if we went to Male first, we would have to wait until 5 hours' later, about 8 p.m. before the next speedboat would be going to the hotel. There was poor communication about why all the airport arrivees had to wait at least an hour before the speedboat loaded up and left. On arrival at the resort, they tried to make each couple stand on the beach in the hot sun and have professional photos taken that they would later sell to you. Upon check in, we were told to pay for the extra night that we had booked before we were taken to our room, even though I had tried to pay before we left the US. Upon check out, we paid for the meals that we had consumed and used some Maldivian currency as well as our credit card. A day later we got an email from the hotel saying that they had made a mistake of $45 US and would we allow them to charge that at that point. Considering that the hotel cost $625 a day and that this was an unforced mistake of their personnel, I think they could have eaten the $45. The quality of the food (especially the breakfast buffet) was excellent and had so many choices that I covered breakfast and lunch each day with the one meal. The choices ranged from Middle Eastern, Sushi, chinese food, hot and cold breakfasts, eggs cooked to order and great Sri Lankan hoppers and Indian dosas, with many different stations open different mornings. The staff also insisted on carrying my dish for me from the buffet to my table! We were able to eat at a table outside by the water, which was wonderful. The outdoor infinity swimming pool was very large and warm, with plenty of comfortable seating and lounges. The staff would deliver complimentary baskets with a cold drink, a cold bottle of water and a cold piece of fruit, which was heavenly with the heat! One evening we got talking with the head chef about how he planned and provisioned for all the restaurants at the hotels. He was very interesting and proud of the variety and quality of the food that he was able to serve. The gym was very clean and all machines were in good shape. The outdoor ping pong, darts and badminton, at no extra charge. I had been told by email before we arrived that the tennis rackets and balls were free, but when we arrived we were told that there was an additional charge, so we skipped that. The resort had a variety of beaches and chaises and lounges that had some sun or some shade so that you could find what you wanted and move around during each day. It was fun to leave the overwater bungalow and snorkle in knee deep water with the beautiful tropical fish right outside my door.
We had a truly amazing honeymoon for 8 nights at this beautiful resort. It is just breath taking, every element of it. All the staff are fantastic and can't do enough for you. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would visit it again any time. This really does have the wow factor!
Very beautiful island. The island which is perfect for honeymoon. Food is also very good but the price is too expensive. Room is also very clean and cleaning the room was very good. Over all is very good.
