We visited this island paradise as part of our pearl wedding celebrations. Although we have returned home with fond memories of our first trip to the Maldives this hotel it is not a place we would choose to visit again and again. The positive of the resort is that a cheaper option to other islands yet provides that idyllic setting,...

This was our first visit to the Maldives and we were very impressed, particularly by the clear waters and white sands. On one side of the island there were surfers and on the other you had the lagoon which was tranquil.

Due to the nature of this resort, I feel that a detailed review is required so that any travellers can make an informed choice when choosing this island. Firstly, the island is a twenty minute, very wind-swept speedboat ride from Male airport. The transfer was safe, speedy and the boat arrived straight outside reception which was convenient. Our first impression...

Even thought we were in 2014 on our honeymoon, it's a place we'll never forget. Best 10 days of our lives. The food was great, the stuff was very friendly and helpfull and the weather/ water just perfect. The extra activities were a little expensive, but we hope we'll go back for our " babymoon" :)
