Peaceful stay

Staff friendliness, variety of food, peacefulness

Excellent resort, excellent services

Beautiful beach, Friendly staffs, Spacious and private room
This is one of the best resorts I have ever stayed. It's located not too far from the International airport, there are beautiful beaches with easy access to the snorkeling spots. Every staffs we met are very friendly and professional to assist in all requests. The events, the dining info and other resort features are well informed to us upon arrival. The room is super spacious and located nicely in front of the beach. Every unit has certain distance so that we would have the privacy and quietness for relaxing holiday.

Great property to enjoy 1st time trip

location, food and value for money
Our first time in Maldives became a dream come true by choosing this hotel. Property is well maintained, great dining choices in reasonable prices, good entertainment during our stay and courtesy of early check in and late check out requests was granted. There was also a situation regarding our payment via card but the people here are very considerate and easy to talk to. Service was hit and miss in my opinion. The person who showed us around is not the type of wherein he would show the property and it's advantages. He just pointed the ones in the map and delivered us to our room. We never heard from him after. Small touches like welcome note upon arrival to our room or at least knowing our names by the staff is not present unlike some reviews i read online. We dined a few times in one of their restos but the resto manager didn't even go around to greet us, only white people he tried to interact with. Despite going on low season, i feel cramped with other guests especially on the beach. I think many guests are there during our stay and mostly noisy. One couple even tried to block us while snorkeling and ask us several times about the fishes?? crazy! Yes you can see the Rubbish Island which kinda spoiled the view of the west beach side. The house reef at Velassaru is super poor too. Reef in the Philippines is way much better, in my opinion. But the beach and turquoise waters are unparalleled. I would still recommend this resort though :)
