We have visit at least 20 resort on the Maldive from 1989, so we know very well the ranking of this amazing location. We tried on our last trip this beautiful island very near to Male airport, only 15 minutes’ fast boat. The island has Maldivian management and all goes very well, the beaches are amazing and you can say to stay in one of the really paradise in the earth. The island is long more than 1 km and large 3-400 meters so is a big island in relation to the other Maldivian resorts. There are 3-4 restaurants and many sport activities, rooms are big and nice situated under the palms and in front the sea. The staff is helpful and professional, many activities in the night and in the day, also if the resort is fully book you can find a private space in middle of the nature and in the with fresh sand. I think is one of the best hotel in relation to price and benefits, so I have to suggest this location how 98% of my best ranking. For have 100 % they have only to organize the food (very big great buffet) with a perceptual of the dishes with less spice food, now they have about 70-80% by Asian spice food and the remain international, some persons like me don’t like spices and we can choose from less kind of foods, anyway we have many nice and amazing food as well. So, come people, this is the island for you, nice price, nice beaches, nice staff, rooms, and all you need is here. They are also very flexible with guest needs and help you for sure! We will come back on next august, and 100% we will come back there! Greeting Alessandro Londero

We were a group of eight people and had a good stay at the Paradise Resort in Maldives. Except for the last day. For a flight which left at 2.00p.m., the hotel forced us to check out by 7.00 a.m. The Airport is a mere twenty minutes ferry ride away, but as there is no other way of commuting there, and as the hotel said that they won't provide us any transportation later, we were forced to go and sit in the Airport for more than six hours. Not only that we had to fight to get them to give us breakfast, which was part of the deal and already paid for. As a couple of other people from other hotels were waiting in the ferry, they tried to push us out, serving only coffee, biscuits and fruits. The unpleasant experience marred the entire last day of our holiday.

I find best holidays in paradise island resort and the most best thing done from salman he well organised our dinner and breakfast on 22 july 2017 .Salman you are bestest thanks for your so much coperation and all arrangements and heartly warm welcome.My best thing done by salman in my life well done highly appreciated that paradise island resort have thes type of workers and persons like salman☺☺👍👍

I liked the resort overall. Of course there is some point should be reviewed but overall the resort is very nice.Sea and beach was beautiful. You must do snookering. It is beautiful to see all the fishes in the sea.

Let me start off by saying how gorgeous the island is. This was my second.time in Maldives and my family and I had a grand time. Management : Very nice and.helpful. special shout out to their night Manager Luthfi! The resort: Amazing rooms, luxurious and comfortable with breathtaking views. Food: we had a FB package so we ate at the main restaurant,while it may not be the most amazing but it had something for everyone. Bar : yummy cocktails and sheesha all at reasonable rates! Big thumbs up to all the bar management. Lovely people. The STARS OF THE SHOW were Pedra and Mr. J. I haven't laughed as much as I did these past few days because of their nightly shows at the main bar. BIG thank you to Mr. J. Sir you are an artist. Loved the disco parties, the games that were arranged each night etc. And Pedra for her warmth and her hospitality.

It was a wonderful stay in Paradise. We went there for our honeymoon and we were staying in Superior beach bungalow Beach view. We initially Booked Fun island Resort (Part of the same Hotel Group) but when we land there we got promoted to Paradise island resort. we got lucky. We stayed there for four days in the wonderful time of the year. We were there in the Xmas week and it was a celebration all over in the Island. Due to peak season , prices were on the higher side but still the island was almost full , Island is very near from the Male Airport (around 15-20 mins via speed boat transfers) Make sure you have selected the right B/L/D plans , i learned the term Half Board (breakfast and Dinner only)/ Full Board (Breakfast - Lunch - dinner )/ Breakfast only we chose Full board. Currency is not a problem they accept all kinds of credit card plus all the major currencies. View from the beach is breath taking. White sand and blue crystal clear water will take your breath away., They have all kind of water sports activity available at the island including snorkling / scuba diving / surfing / jet skiing to name a few. in terms of food - They have taken care of all kinds of food varieties due to their wide guest base from all over the world. the main restaurant name is Bageecha which has a capacity of over 500+ guests. apart from main restaurant , there are several other restaurants as well where you can enjoy the sea food. Welcome to the hotel is wonderful , and they will take care of you personally. Overall a great experience and the wonderfulstay

Just came back from Maldives, I was here with my wife spending 9 days for honeymoon. The resort (beach, sea, etc) is wonderful but what about the management? They don't try to feel you better but they are money accumulator, first of all, with a trick they didn't give me the possibility to use other restaurant also if I have booked a full board reservation where there was mentioned that I could use all the restaurants available in the resort. This reception manager told me that was no possible and I asked her to give me a written justification for that.....she agreed with a fake smiling but from the day after she disappeared and didn't give me what I have requested. The excursions are too expensive and also very low quality, each extra is very expensive, you should pay 200 dollars for a dinner..... For a cocktail about 15 dollars plus taxes, an Italian bottle wine that the real cost is 5 euro, they asked 80 dollars. But I would like to thank the "non management staff", chefs, waiters, cleaners etc were very kind for all the period we were there. Suggestion: change the managers and don't be focused on the money, you will lose the beauty of the resort.

Pleasant speed launch transfer from Male'. A warm welcome with fresh napkins, welcome drinks and exceptionally courteous and friendly staff. Breathe-taking scenery. Clear blue waters and fine white sand beaches. Awesome sunrises and sunsets. Room was well maintained, very clean and spacious. Very far from reception area and restaurants. Was provided with buggy services which takes a little time (limited buggies and drivers). Ask for a nearby room. Very comfortable bed and sofa. Instant tea and coffee for free. Room slippers and umbrellas were provided. Had a sea view with little private beach area with suntan decks and garden with shady trees right in front of the beach. Bathroom was very spacious with comfortable tub. It also had an attached open shower area with a clothes line (very convenient). Food was excellent from the buffet. (The indian dishes were not good). Try the local and continental dishes, they were delicious. Waiters were very helpful and efficient. Kids playground was exciting and my daughter enjoyed a lot. Araamu spa was located towards the water bungalow area. Has tennis n badminton n tt facilities. Enjoyed. Many souvenir shops near the reception area. Watersports included paragliding, surfing, diving, snorkeling, canoeing and many more. A Must! We enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again!

The island is very beautiful and not big. White sand,turquoise water and palmtrees all around. Our superior beach bungalow was several meters from beach, you could see it from the window. Cozy terrace with chairs and table to relax. Especially liked outdoor shower. Separate wifi for each room, which you could even catch in the beach. Room service twice a day.

Very good resort reasonably priced and close to Male. Food in the main restaurant was average while the Italian and sea food Restaurants were good. Went with family and enjoyed the sea facing villa stay. It was wonderful to be in the waist deep water just in front of the room and suddenly could see Turtle swimming by the side and a little later Baby sharks happily swimming along. The water is so clean and with no waves you can see everything as you stand in the water. All activities are in the Island itself and they were quite expensive. Unfortunately even some of the amenities such as Tennis or snooker etc were heavily charged. Thankfully Gym and Table tennis were free. Shark feeding and Stingray feeding are worth a watch. You can spot the sharks and stingrays in the two restaurants closest to the ocean.
