Certain things can be improved upon
Overall, it was a great Maldives experience for us as it was our first time to Maldives. As expected, it was beautiful and we loved the water bungalow. Areas we loved: - The restaurant food was fantastic (maybe other than breakfast)! We've enjoyed all our lunches and dinners at the restaurant, and the service of the restaurant waiting staff. After a few meals, they became familiar friendly faces. The kitchen did a fantastic job cooking our catch from our fishing trip! Was really enjoyable eating our own catch. Areas to improve upon: 1) We waited 1 hour at the airport before being able to take the speedboat to the resort. We were told it was because of the thunderstorm, but we suspected it was mainly because we had to wait for other 2 passengers whose flight had not arrived. Having paid US$130 each person for the boat transfer, this 1 hour wait for us was not acceptable. By the time we reached the resort, it was so late and we had to miss dinner because the restaurant was closed by then. 2) Dive center seems only interested to do diving tours, even though snorkeling tours were also printed on their flyer. We asked almost daily for the snorkeling tour but was consistently told that there was no available boats as the boat had gone out for diving tour. 3) Butler service was lacklustre. He was alright at best. We felt he could be more proactive and passionate in his job. He left us alone most times, or coming to us to sell the resort's facilities/services. 4) Small corner snorkeling equipment shop was closed most time, only opened at very specific hours. We had to time it very accurately to be able to borrow snorkeling equipment. Even though we paid low season fare, we felt it could be better value for money.

Clean and decent relaxing environment, but incredibly and unjustifiably expensive
Outside of my "personal butler," I was largely ignored by the staff until they wanted to sell me massages or "special rates" for overpriced meals that you essentially are forced into paying anyway since there is no way to get food anywhere unless you brought some yourself. Case and point, on the last night, staff were constantly bugging me while I was just trying to relax to ask me if I needed my room cleaned (after "cleaning" it TWICE that day already and at 6PM), if I wanted to join a BBQ that was at a special rate for guests and to have them add chlorine to the private pool in front of the hut. Ignoring the exorbitant pricing for the room, the mandatory and unnecessarily expensive speed boat transfer and sad reef around the water villas, the stay was highlighted by clean rooms, decent facilities (though rooms do need to be updated a bit considering how much they cost) and complementary bottle of sparkling wine and snorkel gear. The reef closest to the huts (each hut has stairs that lead you right into the water) and the accessible parts of the beach are pretty dead and barren, but if you swim further out to the edge, there's some decent sea life to look at (I actually came pretty close to a shark relatively close to the huts, but it swam in a different direction, thankfully). Otherwise, if you're willing to shell at least another $35pp (if you're a group of 4+, extra $20pp if you're less), you can be taken to a better reef.

Perfectly relaxing stay in classic Maldives.
The water villa with a mini pool and jacuzzi were well designed and setup with direct access for snorkelling. All settings and attention to details from this resort for the rooms are really top class. You will almost find everything you need without fuss. For a few days in this resort you will see what you want overall and expect in a Maldives getaway. No wow factor for the island but meet the expected standard of Maldives. Particularly recommended if one wants a relaxing trip or the first time coming to Maldives. Close to airport by speedboat also save you some cost over seaplane. All staffs on the Island were nice, friendly and helpful must also highlight the butler service. Only obvious shortfall of this resort is the operating staff at the airport reception counter who was not matching the service level set at the resort that I would say she was the worst people that I met from all resorts and hotels that I stayed in Maldives. Particularly she was the first point of contact when you just arrived and she will definitely makes you wondered and worried what you get yourself into for the coming few days.

Wonderful resort!!
We stayed in for 5 nights, enjoyable and relaxing. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. The butler was reliable and all the other staff were friendly. A warm welcome feeling. The location is great, only 15mins from the airport via speedboat. Thought it's an small island, the beach is so beautiful and if you love diving or snorkeling, Vadoo is a best choice! We would love to come back!
