Beautiful, greedy, non- halal

Ocean, weather, reef
We enjoyed our stay. Positives: Over water villa is unique and beautiful. We loved the view, sea breeze and evenings. The room is spacious, open air bathroom but still private, clean, quiet, fresh. Buffet is decent. The handsome German chef is helpful and professional. He was always in attendance and does his job so well. The water sports are various and well equipped with fun staff. Close to Male. Lovely beaches. Negatives: Very expensive. We were on an all inclusive over water villa price ($$$) and only given 2 coffee capsules and milks per day...we were told more would cost money. At the price we paid this comes across so badly. After complaining we were provided but without a smile. I got the feeling the resort will try to grab what they can and this greedy approach spoilt the atmosphere. We also felt closely watched by staff...nothing goes unnoticed but then again this goes for the whole Maldives so may not be particular to the resort which is lovely overall. The water villas are right next to each other so you can see and hear other guests on balcony (but private inside). Not Muslim friendly - no toilet hose, no qibla direction or prayer rugs, numerous pork meals.

Just perfect

Friendly staff, great food, beautiful place
Everythig was perfect. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is beautiful and has a great view. Food was delicious and menu changed everyday. The caipirinha was the best I had outside Brazil. Real cachaça. The resort is beautiful and has several different spots to enjoy the beach. My now fiancé put together a surprise dinner by the beach during sunset to propose to me. Everything was so beautiful arranged and the waiter was so excited taking pictures. It was just a magical moment that I will never forget. The massage is quite expesive, but very good. I would love to come back.

Our Maldevian Wedding Anniversary

Beautiful Sights, Very relaxing and Good Food
We appreciate the whole Management for being so generous in upgrading our room (no charge) for our 12th Year Wedding Anniversary. Our stay was very memorable and one of the best not only because of the beautiful sights and amenities but also the staff support in making our Anniversary a very memorable one. They even set-up our bed with flowers, wine and fruits. The experience was fantastic. We will definitely cherish this happy moment for the rest of our lives. More power to your Resort.
