Perfect Getaway

Scenery, Peaceful, Friendly
5 stars***** experience overall!!! Definitely will go back again. [Waiting Lounge] upon arrival, we were being greeted by friendly Lux* staff who assisted us with our luggages to proceed to check in at Trans Maldivian Airline (Seaplane). We arrived Male at 11am and our seaplane ride departing at 1.30pm, hence we were being seated at their very comfortable VIP Lounge. [Seaplane Ride] i was 24th weeks pregnant during the trip, take off and landing were smooth, seaplane cabin was hot but bearable as only 30 mins from Male Airport-Lux* Maldives, noise is tolerable too. [Reception] we were assigned to a private receptionist who see thru our check in. hassle free. [Room] we stayed at beach pavilion with direct beach access. [Beach] clean with ample space of privacy [Travelling Around The Island] you can go by foot around the island, rent a bicycle or just hit a free buggy ride around the island. [Food & Beverages] food quality was good with varieties that satisfied Asian & Western [Water Sports/Activities] they have various kind of water activities and shore activities such as night movie screening by the beach, DJ sunset, volleyball.
