Could be better.

Location was good. Concept was good. Staff were great.
This was our ninth trip to the Maldives. Our primary reason for visiting is the diving. Albatross Top Diving rescued this stay for us by being top notch. The hotel is ok but it needs as refurb as it's looking dated. The rooms are nice but the bathroom is only adequate. The bed was horrible. We never got used to it and there was no alternative. Front office staff are not very good but the rest were brilliant. Of the nine resorts we've been to this is the second lowest standard.

The people, the cleaniness of the place and the awesome view the villas provide
It was a great 5 nights stay in gangehi. I stayed in over water villa for the first night with full board. It was awesome. The rest of the days we were supposed to stay in a club room and i guessed they just upgraded us to a beach villa with amazing view. Although we are on full board package but it doesn't provide mineral water, tea or coffee in the villa unlike over-water villa. You have to get the 1.5L mineral water from the bar which cost abt 4usd. There isn't tv in the beach villa too but nobody watch tv when you are on holiday#justsaying The foods was all right as I ain't a foodie just to mention that they repeated the varieties of food throughout my stay but there were lots of food there so no complaints. It was good enough for me. The people were friendly in the island. Can approach anyone there. Cheers to paradise:)

Shocking standards

We were absolutely shocked by the standards of the hotel. It is definitely not a 5 star luxury resort, as the hotel claims to be. First of all, the food at the main restaurant (buffet) is extremely bad. Breakfast buffet is extremely poor, stations such as local breakfast available at other hotels were missing. Food was oily and repetitive. Certain options, such as hash browns were replaced on a few occasions by French fries. The food is also leftover from previous day (usually lunch). Very few fruit options (it is a tropical country!), and those are often overripe. Secondly, the room and amenities were rather a three star or lower resort level. No kettle available, no water provided; very few amenities (cotton buds not provided, let alone shower gel); the room is advertised as a double, however, it is in fact two single beds put together, therefore, if you want to sleep closely with your loved one, you will wake up with a pain in your back. Thirdly, throughout my extensive travels, I have never come across such a bad attitude of a general manager. Instead trying to solve the issue, manager in fact fights with the customers. Moreover, it feels like GM is a customer herself - we constantly saw her in bars and restaurants of the resort drinking and having fun (including daytime). All in all, we had a very bad experience in the resort. Definitely would not recommend, and won't be returning.

Heaven, amazing Italian food. Beautiful view

Food, daily activities with Maxine and Lucca.
It's the perfect place for those who seek a romantic and Isolated island. The food was so delicious, every meal was great (we took the full board). Between 18:30 - 19:30 there is a happy hour :) There are some activities during the day: snorkeling, morning exercises and Pilates- all free and with a guide (the guides were really nice and professional) We stayed at the deluxe water villa and at the normal water villa

Great Holiday in Gangehi

Beautiful place, great service, nice beach
Wonderful holiday in Gangehi. It's a small island with very beautiful view. Sea is crystal clear, very beatiful sand bar that stretch from the island. Water villa could see fishes and ray swim by. Environment very clean, staffs are friendly. Foods are average which many dishes are repeating every meal.

Staff, house ref, value for money
Holiday was incredible, I was a little concerned when we booked because it was one of the better value deals to the Maldives, I shouldn't have been, it was perfect with no problems or reasons to complain. I would recommend to anyone. We stayed in a beach villa (Number 2) which was lovely and the water was almost up to our steps so it was almost a water villa anyway.

Very nice place

Staff, snorkeling, small and not over crowded
We had a great time at the resort. The staff was awesome and they accommodated us in every way. The food could use a little improvement but overall it was a great experience. Some of the best snorkeling I have done is around this island. Even had a very close encounter with a 5 foot black tip reef shark :).

An ideal location and hotel for relaxation

Excellent place, wonderful beaches, very good food and friendly staff.
Everything was perfectly organized. The staff was very helpful, food was amazing, the natural environment was wonderful as well. The only negative thing was the cost. Prices were unreasonably high, especially for the spa.
