A slice of heaven!
Gangehi is probably the best beach resort we've ever been to. The ambience, the facilities, the food, the staff - all were remarkably excellent and we sure did leave a piece of our heart behind while returning. Do not think twice heading here! 10/10! A special mention to Arianna who ever so graciously welcomed us and attended to all our requirements.

Great overwater villa view but rainy day.
We went for the Dolphin viewing on 17 June, 2016 morning, but too much we were unable to see any dolphins. It rained in the afternoon, with strong wind. But, it was lucky it didn't rain on 18 June, 2016 morning, and we managed to take some photos again along the beach, and around the island.

Great overwater villa.
We changed our room from beach villa to overeater villa the next day, as per our bookings. The overwater villa was great. Somehow, the food at main restaurant were pretty much the same every day (lunch & dinner), except the Maldivian food on Friday night. The weather was good, i.e. shiny day, which was good for photographing.

Good value of money hotel
The booking was on beach villa with full board. Our seaplane flight was stopped at the other 2 stops before arriving at Gangehi. Our beach villa is very near tot he jetty, and the beach & sea were just outside our room. However, when we step out the room, there was too many mosquitos. Other than that, the rest is OK.

Unforgettable Honeymoon
We were delighted with the upgrade to a Deluxe Overwater Villa. What more can you ask for our honeymoon. The staff are friendly. While you can communicate with English, you will have to speak slowly and clearly as most of the staff members have it as their second language. Note that there will be a US$435/pax for the round trip seaplane. For divers, the dive shop is very friendly and accommodating. They require a check dive in their house reef before any boat dives. They also require insurance (which you can pay US$10 per day per person). They also dive with ~200 bars. Food is good. Not a lot of meats but plenty of fruits amd vegetables. My wife and I love this place. We stayed 4 nights and we wished we had more time (and budget).

beautiful paradise
Awesome sand bank, privacy and secluded
To reach Gangehi resort needs to travel by the waterplane and a short boat ride to arrive at the dock. Its was an experience for us couples. That causes me seasick due to the storm we were stuck in the seaplane lack of air. We arrived safely at the resort, were greeted warmly by the friendly staff. After checking into our room, it was greeted by the awesome sand bank it was directly located right in front of our watervilla. Thought we expected the villa was over the water, but it doesn't matter anymore. We get to experience both low tide and high tide waters. The breakfast was served the same every morning, hope this can be improved. Overall, good stay good vacation good ambience and great people we met along the way.

Location, Food, Beach
Perfect getaway! The island is well maintained and very beautiful. Staff are friendly and rooms are clean. The only minor complaint I have is that food and the activities offered can be pricey. Well it is a tourist spot.
