Beautiful Corals all around

Beautiful corals and marine life at your doorstep. Great all inclusive package (including Whale Shark snorkelling trip). Enough activities to keep us busy throughout the 4 nights' stay.
We didn't have a good first day as the air-conditioning wasn't working despite multiple visits by the technician and customer service. I had to sleep without air-con for the first night despite promises made by the technician that my room will cool down in 1-2 hours. The situation turned for the better when Ashish Kumar (the Customer Service Manager) handled my case. I got an upgrade for the rest of my stay (I stayed a total of 4 nights). I was well greeted and asked about my stay everytime I met him or any of his staff to ensure that I have enjoyed myself. The resort has 3 restaurants (thai, italian and the Reef that serves a different theme buffet everynight) and at the Reef restaurant, there is a teppanyaki counter. Even though you may choose to eat at any restaurant, you need to make a reservation way in advance, especially for teppanyaki, and the Italian restaurant. Please do so on arrival as you may need at times, 3 days' advance reservation (for teppanyaki). They have various activities (included in package)- Sunset Fishing, Whale shark snorkelling, Snorkelling trip, sunset cruise. You will be provided a coupon for a Banana Boat ride. You may only have ONE trip for each activities (weather permitting) and you NEED to book in ADVANCE. There is a 30 minute spa package where you can choose a variety of massages everyday. Once again this need to be booked way in advance. For us, our slots are pre-booked and we can't change the time. The island is surrounded by beautiful corals and marine life so bring along your underwater cameras. You can even see young reef sharks daily (they are harmless). Selected alcohol beverages and cocktails are available throughout the day (freeflow). Overall, a beautiful resort but can be frustrating and stressful with all the pre-bookings and having to remember all the schedules.

top notch!

superb customer service, spacious rooms and very family friendly.
This is THE resort. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The amenities were great. It was fuss free as it was all-inclusive. Food was awesome everyday and it was very easy to get halal food for us. There was a kids camp to entertain my 2 yo. A lot of activities to do for family, elderly and couples. Super, super resort!!!!

Crystal Clear Water

Sea, Snorkeling, Coral Bar
Was our first trip to the Maldives for honeymoon and wedding anniversary, reminded the hotel upon arrival and found a bottle of sparkling wine and some apples & oranges in the room on the second day. Rooms: We stayed in deluxe water villa 88, although I thought rooms 89, 90 & 91 would have been better. 89 & 90 is the last 2 villas at the end, 91 is facing the open sea more privacy and appears to be newer/had some work done more recently, our friends was staying in 91. The accommodations are in dire need of a makeover, the age is showing very obviously. Honestly, I was quite disappointed with the room upon walking in for the first time as everything looks so worn out and old. But after a while the sea & surroundings outside the villa kinda made up for it.

Rooms for improvement

Marine life, all inclusive excursions, dining choices
Service can be better. Staff are not smiling at the restaurants and were not attentive. Need to book the 30mins daily free spa early due to limited slots. Go for the whale shark snorkeling and sunset fishing trip!
