We don't think you will be disappointed in this resort, from the friendliness of the staff, excursions, fabulous swimming pool, excellent food choices and with the atmosphere of the Maldives but other islands easy to reach by cycle or local buses. Great place.
Resort near Gan airport”
This is a nice place to stay for a night if you are flying out of Gan airport. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The dinner was also good. The only down side is there is nothing to do on the island and around the property. We did bike to the neighboring islands but they had nothing to offer. If you want to enjoy what Maldives has to offer then you must stay at an single island resort for a proper experience. We had stayed in Shangrila resort and spa for 3 nights and as our flight was early in the morning so we stayed here the last night. But the plus point was that it was right next to the airport. I would reccomend this place for a nights stay.
After 44 years Returning to the old RAF base I served At Was always going to be an emotional and interesting experience and didn't dissapoint on any level.Mohamed Waheed is the general manager of the resort village and both he and all his staff are the most helpful and courteous Hotel staff you could ever meet,they will always go the extra mile to help out any Guest no matter what their problem.The standard of the food was always very high and the Chefs cover all possible options regarding diets and possible dietary requirements.Our stay was a fantastic experience and brought back many good memories of my service days here in the seventies.A word of Caution its well worth upgrading to the all inclusive package here as it covers all meals quite a few free trips and bike hire most other places would charge extra for And is the only place on Addu Attol that can serve you Alcahol,so be aware if you book anywhere else on the Attol it may end up being a very sobering experience for you.
All staff were v helpful”
Resort Manager Mr Waheed was excellent. Very friendly and a resourceful person to spend some time with.
Great Dive Resort and accomodation”
Well worth a visit, well maintained, good food and wonderful staff. Te diving from here with the onsite dive shop was fantastic.
Nice and relaxing stay ”
Everything was amazing. Definitely I will come back.
A value for money resort in maldives”
We had a very good time at this place. Staff is very friendly and hospitable. food was absolutely amazing. Full meal option is the best deal as you get unlimited bottled water and 3 times meal. There is a good evening snack also. Pool is good. Resort offers a lot of good activities e.g. island hopping and dolphins view etc. Best part is that you can go to the nearby towns and witness daily life in Maldives which is an experience unique in Maldives. This resort however doesn't have long beaches because it's mainly for deep sea scuba diving as it's located in lagoon are. so if you're into diving this is the place for you.
Staff was very rude.We'll never come back.
Excellent location and price ”
I really love this resort. This resort is very close to the airport. I suppose this point is the most advantage of this resort. You can enjoy staying here until your flight check in time starts. As there was not much difference between all inclusive plan to other plans, I selected all inclusive plan. It was very reasonable price. As island hopping, snorkeling trip and rental cycle were included by all inclusive plan, it was very good. I could see very nice snorkeling points by island hopping. Coral is alive and I could see many fishes. When I applied to lent a bicycle, there was not good size one for me. But the front office manager would have looked for good size one for me, I could enjoy going the cycling for Addu islands. As Addu islands are connected by bridges, you can visit there by bicycle and car. And he would have listened kindly some my requests, I could enjoy staying the resort. I really appreciate his hospitality. Other staffs were also good. They were very friendly. You can enjoy snorkeling at this resort's private beach. I could see many fishes. My room was very clean. I could feel very confortablely . Shower pressures and hot water were good. The restaurant was also good for me. I am very satisfied with this resort totally. As I could enjoy staying here by good price, I would like to visit this resort again. I really recommend here. とにかく空港から近いのがいいです。 飛行機のチェックインぎりぎりまでリゾートに居れます。 オールインクルーシブでもかなり安いと思います。他のプランと大差なかったので、アイランドホッピング、シュノーケリングツアー、レンタルサイクルが含まれていたオールインクルーシブにして良かったです。 アッドゥの島々にサイクリングに行って楽しかったです。 食事も部屋も良かったです。 こじんまりとしたいいリゾートです。 スタッフもいい方ばかりでした。 また訪れたいと思います。
Dear Tomoko, Thank you very much for your positive and encouraging review. So Glad that you had a great experience with us. I am sure all our staff will be happy to read your review. We will be there to serve you always. And we look forward to serve you again. Sincerely, Abdulla Fahmy Front Office Manager
Great service & value.”
Great location very close to airport. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food & drink prices very good value.
Wonderful place with fantastic people”
The care and attention given by the resorts team was not only a credit to each individual but the organisation as a whole. We will be back!
The only hotel close to Gan Airport ”
We have stayed one night only awaiting our flight in the next day. I think there is no negative points except mosquitoes
Nice old resort close to the airport with good food and a decent house reef for snorkelling. The dolphin watch tour organized by the hotel is a must see! It's the only resort on Gan where alcohol is permitted. You get what you paid for. Would recommend.
A place of beauty and history”
I chose to stay at this hotel,because of its history,what I found was a little piece of paradise as well.A perfect combination of location and facilities. The staff were all exceptional and were professional and very friendly and knowledgeable.I would like to commend all the staff for making my stay fantastically memorable especially the ladies on the front desk .Mona,Irfa and Harissa all were extremely good at their jobs ,my maid Fatima whose standards in cleaning the room were very high. Nothing was to much trouble to ask,from anyone ,all went above and beyond my expectations. THANK YOU to all.
Maybe one of the best places in the part of Maldives”
This is probably on the farthest island from Male, almost a private island (part island). Bicycles available at the resort (for rent) to visit nearby islands on your own. The house reef is probably the best I've seen, you can enjoy snorkelling for hours right next to the resort. The dive school is well equipped, and quite reasonably priced. Food options are not many, but manageable.
Good Value Location for Diving”
This resort is located close to the airport on Gan Island. Very convenient to not have to take an expensive boat transfer to an island resort! Despite the proximity, you don't get aircraft noise. The resort is clean with friendly staff. Decent pool, plus gym and onsite spa. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Not as fancy as some of the nearby island resorts, but you can get a week here for a night on some of those islands. There are some local restaurants and cafes on nearby islands connected by road (walk, cycle or local taxi), so you are not captive on this resort only. Diving around the atoll is world class and I saw Manta Rays on 3 out of 4 mornings. Dive shop on-site is well run.
Good hotel to relax for a few days”
Hotel is excellent for kindness, service and cleaniness. The buffets are good, but not exceptional. All-inclusive is a good option, because of the many extra's.
Pro: near airport; pool; bicycles; fitness facility; snorkeling at Bushy island; breakfast. Con: charged for water with inclusive dinner. Hot water was hit & miss. Dinner so-so.
Staff is amazing, going back without a doubt”
The staff is friendly and caring Sure the beach may not be the Best Buy you can go on excursions and discover the Maldives as you have both local-islands joint together with bridges and you can rent a bike(for free if you're all inclusive) to discover the most part of Addu atoll. You can go by ferry the other atolls add well and discover just ask the staff.
Stayed for 4 Nights - Poor Services ”
I have stayed with wife 4 nights ( 2 Couples - Group) - We had issue with showroom and informed never show up to fix until we went to front office in the night ( Room No: 106) - One day we have requested House keeping come to clean after 1 hour and no one show up and no water bottle is provided for the day, I went front office in the night there is no water in my room as per front office house keeping is closed if you want take from bar but it is chargeable. Suppose to be free 2 water bottle every day every room. - Very poor cleaning services toilet haven’t been clean well. - There is a different treatment European and Maldivian Guests, for everything we have to ask there is no proper greeting and not treated well. I believe both party paid same amount for the stay. - Rooms are bit smaller when compare to the price of the room. - During the checkout, no proper Greeting. Guest is always a Guest. Probably this is our first and Last visit to the Equator Village Good Luck....
