Superb and class! Although I waited longer for their speedboat, overall it was a nice stay and enjoyed what the resorts had to offer.

Overwater suite has the best view of the resort. Friendly and polite staff, delicious food

Nice and intimate resort, more of small boutique resort feel than a big anonymous hotel. Friendly staff.

This hotel was perfect, we had the over water suite and it was worth every penny. I booked the all inclusive package because I had heard food in the Maldives is very expensive. My only do over would be to book the premium all inclusive package, since it also includes two excursions and premium alcoholic. The hotel staff was also wonderful and very accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Overall it was amazing, the pictures don't do it justice. The neighboring island is done with construction so we had no issues with that. When checking in everyone was friendly and laid everything out for us really well. Someone came to clean our room twice a day and refill our bottled water. The restaurant was amazing. Lunch and dinner always had a pasta/salad bar and home made sorbet. Breakfast always had omelets. We did the night fishing TWICE because it was amazing. They let you pick a fish each for them to cook for you the next night. Red Snapper was amazing. We snorkeled with the sea turtles and saw 4 turtles which was really cool, the fish and coral alone was beautiful. We also did the half day island hopping excursion. we went to another resort and the sunscreen was MUCH cheaper. Then we were taken to a native island, bought all our souviniors and bargained prices down. be careful because one could from Europe was given fake dollars back. We stayed in the overwater bungalow. we were able to snorkel off our balcony during high tide but at low tide it was a little shallow for us. Bring your own snorkel gear, high sunscreen than expected, and we brought reusable water bottles for the bar so we wouldn't have to worry about plastic cups and we were able to fit two drinks into our one water bottle.
