Great Resort
Despite the location is so far from Male Airport, it takes about more than minutes on old domestic air plane to GAN airport then 5 minutes speed boat to the resort, the resort is so beautiful, nature and amazing. The staff are so much nicely and helpful. Foods is not really good bur acceptable. Good for couples to enjoy the honeymoon.

Immazing scape from everything,, perfect for relax
1-service 2- food options 3- privacy. It was a great escape from work pressure.
It was one of my best holidays.. The staff are very friendly, the service was amazing ,,the hotel is very huge you can find daily activities if you like such couples cooking, spa, water activities, etc. The only two things I would say that affected my mood were: 1- the hotel is very far from Male airport. You have to take domestic flight that is scheduled on specific times ( for 70-90 minutes) which means if the got delayed) such my case), you will wait in the airport and the Traveling day will go for nothing. 2- all the resort beach is not clean. You can find dead bird or full of plants that will not make you comfortable walking.

Birthday celebration
1. The friendly staffs who greet you everytime, 2. The indian food, 3. Serenity
1.Domestic flight was delayed & causing us to stay at the lounge for hours, light refreshment wasnt that fantastic. 2.The almost 2 hrs flight was torturing with the sound of propeller. 3.Touching down Gan airport have to transfer to speedboat, a warm towel would be better than cold. 4.Welcome with coconut juice was average as it was pouring heavily, does not enjoy it. Not enough umbrellas to shelter all so about 4 to 5 person squeeze in an umbrella, very unpleasant. 5.Staffs were extremely friendly & patience though, guided us through our ocean view pool villa. It was rather oversize for just 2 of us, a living room on its own, a bedroom connect with open concept bathroom with huge tub and outdoor shower. 6.Not sure was it because of the weather, mosquitos & pest infested. You can see bats flying & resting right ouside, amoung the trees. At night was really pitch dark. 7.You can call for buggy service or cycle at your convenience, was given a nokia mobile by my villa butler. 8.Room was comfortable overall, able to hear the sound of the waves. 9.Staffs were service oriented but barely meet my expectation as i am an hotelier myself in Singapore. There wasnt any WOW element coming from a 5stars resort except the generosity of bread inclusive for which ever food you ordered. 10.Food wise wasnt that fantastic for a seafood lover. I had seafood for almost every meal but the standard vary. Definitely not value for money. I had chosen Dine by Design at Mount Villingili to celebrate my husband birthday, he was surprised by the place and deco but food wasnt impressive. USD180++ per pax doesnt fit well for a 3 course meal WITHOUT beverages provided. As the sun sets around 6 plus in the evening, we became the food for mosquitos. The chef & helper did their best to keep the pests away but it will definitely be better if repellants could be pre-arranged rather than being told. As Shang was rather far from Male, would not be of my choice again considering e hassle.

Location, Staff, Rooms
Our original reservation was for four days, but we stayed for ten days. It was incredible. The location and the resort are top notch. The staff was delightful. Our five-year old loved it, too. I would recommend this resort to anyone for as many days as you can spare.
