Very nice resort and a awsome island”
Just woooow for these price 1+AAAAA.
We have just returned from a fantastic one week holiday on Gangehi. The scuba diving and snorkelling are amazing, so much to see. There isn't much else to do on the island so if you're looking for a busy, active holiday then this isn't for you. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is very good, as is the evening buffet, and for a nice change the Thali Restaurant serves lovely seafood. I would highly recommend the Gangehi.
Villa on the water”
The beauty of the place is amazing. Decoration of the villa and the whole resort is great. Distance to the resort in speedboat is 2 hours. Breakfast should be improved, there are few almost none fruit. We would say, It needs more gastronomic imagination at the restaurant too. However the overall rating is excellent.
Could have done better”
Island is small... but needs maintenance. I booked my seaplane flight thinking it would be seamless... but we were made to wait in the airport for over 2 hours and during that time, I was thinking of how I should have not checked out of my hotel first but all of this happened cause the resort never told us what time the flight was. The resort was ok. Nice beach but nothing extra-ordinary for me to travel 12 hours from the Philippines. The rooms need a bit of maintenance as the wood has been obviously over dried (no varnish) and i even got a splinter. Food was good! Our waiter Ali was superb. Honorable mention to the guy at the dive shop Bela, who needs a lesson on how to handle customers. He was very rude. Loves to use words such as "You should know" and "that's your problem not mine." and it seems like he doesn't like a business. Their Marine Biologist Sarah was great & showed she loved what she did. Over-all... would I go back? Nope! I would not recommend it.
Excellent stay. Nice place, beautiful fish, 1km of house reef. Seen Reef Sharks 2x daily from my chalet, saw sting ray too. Food is excellent. Staff is like family. Peace and quiet. Not an island where you party. Wifi not strong though, so purchase a SIM card at the airport. Bought Dhirragu 17GB 1 week prepaid. Strong signal. Able to watch 2 movies and stream 4hours of Spotify daily. Love the island.
Beautiful Island with amazing staff”
We arrived at Gangehi after our travel plans were cancelled due to the weather. The resort was stunning and cosy with a extremely relaxed feel. The snorkelling was amazing (We saw turtles and a whole range of amazing fish). A massive thank you to Victor in Guest relations who went above and beyond to assist us when we were delayed in our travels. Nothing was too big of a deal for him and how he assisted us was brilliant. It was a shame we had to leave after only one night!
We stayed in a water villa and overall it was the postcard-like experience and the food was very good. What bothered me to a certain extent is that they use their own time, which is 1 hour later than actual time. They say this is to give guests more daylight-time, but that doesn't make sense since then "Gangehi time" should be one our earlier than actual time.
Best service and snorkelling sites”
I lost my wallet there and they're sending it back to me! Honest, great service with an amazing resort to boot. One of my favourite snorkelling sites resides within Gangehi. Spotted turtles and sharks and many colourful fishes :) Great italian food and comfortable rooms. So good this is the second time I've stayed there! You'll find it hard to fault them for anything.
This was our first stay in the Maldives. We stayed two nights in the overwater villa (2nd villa from the sandbank). This place is the most amazing place and is definitely worth the money to travel to. On arrival from the seaplane we were picked up by boat and the manager greeted us, all staff were super friendly and very accommodating. We went on the daily snorkel tours with the marine biologist each afternoon which was great, we also went on a paid tour by boat to another island to go snorkelling, good to see a different variety of fish. The food here was amazing, especially loved the dessert chef (his coconut nutella slice was amazing!!!) Room wise the bed was super comfortable, shower great and great view out from our overwater villa, it was awesome to be able to go swimming whenever we wanted/woke up. Lots of fish and small reef sharks swimming around our villa. We got engaged on this trip here to Gangehi so will definitely remember this trip for the rest of our lives :)
Quiet and pleaceful place”
If you want to relax and away from busy world then I would recommend this place. The island is very small and not many thing to do but the resort also provides excursion program. If you easy to get bored then should not come here.
We were delighted with the upgrade to a Deluxe Overwater Villa. What more can you ask for our honeymoon. The staff are friendly. While you can communicate with English, you will have to speak slowly and clearly as most of the staff members have it as their second language. Note that there will be a US$435/pax for the round trip seaplane. For divers, the dive shop is very friendly and accommodating. They require a check dive in their house reef before any boat dives. They also require insurance (which you can pay US$10 per day per person). They also dive with ~200 bars. Food is good. Not a lot of meats but plenty of fruits amd vegetables. My wife and I love this place. We stayed 4 nights and we wished we had more time (and budget).
Great Holiday in Gangehi”
Wonderful holiday in Gangehi. It's a small island with very beautiful view. Sea is crystal clear, very beatiful sand bar that stretch from the island. Water villa could see fishes and ray swim by. Environment very clean, staffs are friendly. Foods are average which many dishes are repeating every meal.
Best vacation ever!”
This was the best choice of hotel for the Maldives! It's small and private, only 25min seaplane away from Male, buffet food was absolutely fantastic because all the chefs are Italians! The overwater house was heaven. And the staff were all so friendly and helpful. Amazing stay!
A gem on the island ”
I really enjoyed my vacation at Gangehi island. Everything from the food, the beach, the room service were fantastic. The staff were superb. They were very polite, friendly and dedicated. I would love to come back again next time. Room tips: choose full board service. It would be more convenient.
Escape to Paradise”
My three nights stay was excellent and peaceful vacation. Though I should prolong more of my stay. Most of the people came here will stay for 7days or more since the journey took was long too get there, especially the seaplane. It cost me 420Dollar for return seaplane from Male - Gangehi but it is worth for every penny ! When I reached there, they told me that there are also another alternative, which is by speedboat (took 4 hours journey). The Island is own by Italian(run by Swiss owner) and currency spend is in Euro. For single Muslim traveler , food wise should be careful because there might be alcohol in pasta and they serve pork/ham during breakfast. But no worries - there are mosque in the island and Muslim worker people who are friendly around to help. I love the view of the room in no. 7(bigger), however, i got shifted to room to no. 1B(which is smaller) since I am alone (I guess). I love the sunset, sunrise and the sandbanks.Excellent panoramic view which I didn't missed until the fourth day of my journey. The worker there are very friendly to me and I feel secure all the time though I traveled alone. It was my third visit to Maldives. I would love to go again to Gangehi one day but I will explore other island too in my next visit to Maldives :)
i booked gangehi resort after checking out the pictures in agoda. it turned out to be a really good decision. i tried out the club room and the villa over water. both are good. i would give this resort a grade of ten of ten
A Memorable Stay”
We are a family group of 5, and had the chance to experience both the Over Water Deluxe Villa 43 and the Beach Villa 17. I'd like to thank Diksan Wijerathna for being accommodating and informative through the email replies. We enjoyed our rooms, food (very good buffet both lunch & dinner), and the rest of the island is just magnificent. Aside from the Garden Villa, all rooms feature glorious views of the Indian Ocean. Everything in the island seemed to be very well maintained. We really had a wonderful stay at Gangehi Island Resort and wish to come back again.
round trip seaplane cost from Male to the Gangehi resort in the beginning. It was a big surprise. Seaplane company told us that their plane ticket for round trip to and from Gangehi . It seems that Ganghe resort is taking too much expensive toll from guests to stay their resort.
Grat service and beautiful beach”
I only stayed for 2 nights but I had wonderful days there. Stuffs are very friendly. They remember each guests which room we are staying, when we are coming and leaving. It was miracle. Everyday, I felf very comfortable even I stay there by myself. I have people whom I can talk to. I difinetly wanna back here!!
Very personal small hotel”
Room was simple, functional and clean. Food is really good and I loved the fact that I see the same staff everyday thus making the service more personal. They are not invasive and know how to distance themselves when needed.
Free Wi-Fi in all rooms!
