beautiful island, manicured
brand new facilities
Hilton is only 2 year old facilities. Room is very large (125sm including the terrace). However not all the Villas have the same access to the beach, some of them are 5 meter other 20 meter. Obviously, the later has a very limited view of the ocean from the room. It is very clean and almost no mosquito as the island is sprayed every other day.

What a Gem! Hotel exceeded expectations!!
Great rate, incredible room, great food choices, excellent services
we stayed at the hilton for 10 days with a 3 yr old. we would have preferred a hotel closer to the airport with a speedboat transfer, but the seaplane transfer ended up being spectacular. you shouldn't miss that view! booking through agoda made the whole process so seemless, easy and the rate was absolutely incredible. people staying at the hotel for the same dates and room as us were paying triple the rate we paid...and our rate included 2 meals!!!!! the minute the seaplane arrived at the hilton, you are greeted by your personal butler, checked in, given some brief info of the island, and escorted to your room. our room had an incredible view that included the dive center, plus we were upgraded for free. some people would complain about seaplane noise, but it wasn't an issue with us. plus it only runs during daylight hours. the room amenities are perfect, including a beach bag. the iru fushi buffet was delish! never got dull eating there 2 meals a day. the other restaurants were great, although i think trio could give more food for the prices. but it was exceptional regardless. one thing to remember is the culture of the people working there. they aren't pushy. if you need something you will probably need to ask. they don't pressure you into drinking, eating, ordering, etc... it's a very relaxed place. the kid's club was a dream. my daughter loved, loved, loved the kid's club. the ladies there take such loving care of the kids. we even used them one night for babysitting and she was just superb! my husband loved the diving. he was able to see things over 6 days that many never see in 1000 dives (mantas, sharks, dolphins, turtles, eels, etc...). i even saw a manta just snorkeling the house reef. we kayak'd almost everyday. we enjoyed the recreation room. the spa was devine!! everyone was warm, friendly and we would go back tomorrow if we didn't have to work!!

Nice hotel, nice beach villa (same as last year!)
Good facilities (swimming pools, gym, tennis court, restaurants)
overall we had a good stay. in some cases the waiters should pay more attention to the guests and improve on serving with a smile (which makes you feel good as guest!), but i guess they were quite tired/hungry/thirsty because of ramadan.

Far beyond expectation
Spacious rooms, breathtaking viewes, friendly staff, excellent service
we did not expect that the rooms are so big and so well equipped, knowing that almost all the things are imported, and from far away. no compromise has been made to save the cost and all have been made to guarantee the comfort of the clients. there are plenty of places to go and activites to do in the island. we had to be organized to be able to discover all the points of interest. will definitely recommend friends to go there.

great villa and great activities
large choice at the buffet, many activites available
The beach villa was cosy, very big and well decorated. The staff was friendly but they don't advise enough abt the facilities of the island, you have to find yourself. We were on half board, so enjoyed buffet at breakfast and dinner. The buffet's choice is large and food is good. Good combination of local and international food. However, the Maldives is also the paradise for geckos and mosquitoes. The bathroom is in open air so you take your shower with geckos and even sometimes with huge cockroaches... Good place for resting, snorkelling.

Beautiful hotel in paradise
Amazing rooms, great food, incredible pools and beaches, excellent service
on arrival we were quickly transferred to the luxurious hilton lounge at the seaplane terminal, which was great. the seaplane transfer itself was fun and our welcome at the hilton was excellent. we stayed in a beach villa - the most basic room in the hotel but still very large, well-equipped (loved the outdoor bathroom!) and clean. the island was beautiful. we spent most of our time at the adults-only infinity pool. it was very quiet and chilled there, and the pool-side bar/food service was excellent. food was expensive (as expected) but very good - we really loved the islander's grill, a steak and seafood restaurant on the beach. i am 28 weeks pregnant so we didn't do any watersports, we just spent our holiday relaxing. it was a great place to relax!
