Paradise Island Resort & Spa

Reviewed 27 October 2017

We stayed in Paradise island resort for 6 days full board and it was pretty close to being the perfect destination in many aspects.

My first thank goes to the staff who ensured that guests have the best time here. And I would specially mention our hosts at Bageecha restaurant Cynthia and Anna. We had total 17 meals in Bageecha and we were greeted by them with same passion and happiness all 17 times. We had our 15 months young son with us who soon became real friendly with them.

We stayed in Beach villa and our villa was on the eastern side. Water is much calm on that end and every morning we had lovely view of sunrise. At the same time we could easily spot baby sharks in water early morning which was a huge plus point.

There are 2 free activities that happen everyday, Shark feeding and stingray feeding. We thoroughly enjoyed both the activities.
They also have some games and show every night which are hosted by Joker, we enjoyed those games/shows as well. They do ensure that guests are entertained everyday.

They do have a good bar and plenty of cocktails you can have while enjoying the beach. One drink in particular I didnt like was 'get me drunk', it was mix of plenty of things and I didnt like the taste. Their Margarita was pretty good.

This is the disappointing part. They do have plenty of seafood in their buffet but if you dont eat seafood or if you are not a fan of seafood then most of the times you would not like the food. Of course they do have few vegetarian dishes as well but they were not really tasty.
Out of 3 meals everyday (breakfast,lunch and dinner) one would be pretty awesome and other 2 would be just average. Breakfasts were usually good. And fruits were really tasty. This is one reasons I cannot give 5 stars.

Water and marine life:
Damn, I could talk about this forever. Probably the best waters I have seen. And for those who likes to watch marine life, you dont need to go scuba or even snorkel. You can just walk in water and see beautiful fishes. Of course you go further deep and you can see more beautiful fishes but I was content with what I was able to see.
Water on the western beach was not calm however eastern beach was really calm and I was able to see plenty. One evening we saw 4 baby sharks swimming just few meters away.

Its our last night at this wonderful Island and my wife and I are sorry to be leaving. This was our honeymoon holiday and we stayed for 7 nights. 4 Nights at one of the beach bungalows room 219. And the final 3 nights in one of the water haven villas room 738. The water villa was amazing we loved it. The haven villa also comes with a private jacuzzi. We recommend staying in one of these if you can its worth it. The food at the lagoon restaurant is great and the atmosphere is so relaxing as you can eat overlooking the sea. A special thanks to Richa and Salman the waiter at the lagoon restaurant they really treated us like royalty and went out of their way to make our meals special. Another big thank you to Ronak the barman at the hulhangu bar, his Cocktails were amazing and he really made our visits to the bar enjoyable, a great guy. We would also like to thank our room boy Sadam he made our stay in the Haven villa exceptional with 2 visits a day to make sure our towels were changed and clean the villa, a credit to the resort. Another thank you to Blipbob the buggie driver always at our service. Also look out for the evening entertainment hosted by Joker, his evening shows were really entertaining and another great guy. I would recommend going All Inclusive as this includes drinks. Finally we would like to thank the deputy manager Issam for fixing our problem we had with our first villa. He really went out of his way to make sure my wife and I were happy and I must say a big thank you for making this honeymoon a truly amazing holiday of a lifetime. We will miss this beautiful place.

It was a very nice vacation. The staff was very polite with a good hospitality. We met the staff and they were super kind. The barman Ronak made good cocktails and verry kind. He is a funny guy. The hotel is very beautiful. It’s really worth his price! The room was super clean. The food was really good. It was a perfect experience going in a beautiful country like this. We are happy that we have picked this hotel.

A great place for relaxing.. amazingly neat and clean island with friendly staff.. Awesome food and water sports activities. I stayed at superior beach bungalow, which was worth for every penny spent. Spa is also good, but little bit expensive.. Highly recommend this resort for family and couples..

Room Tip: Rooms near the beach are outstanding...
