This property was AMAZING!! The staff was as friendly as can be. I stayed in one of the water bungalows, which was a top-notch accommodation. All the non-motorized water sports were included, the food was terrific, and the water and beaches were gorgeous. My only issue was they did not have the breakfast buffet, but you are able to order whatever you want for breakfast, and it's all included. Also, it is quite far from the Male airport. It takes an additional 3-4 hours to get from there to the island through a domestic flight (not the nicest transportation) and an hour long boat ride. However, it was all worth it!

Dear Molly, Thank you again kindly for the review and for choosing our little island for your celebration. It's a good point about the breakfast buffet, but with Covid protocols and feedback from previous guests that they preferred a la carte was the reason we decided to change this. Delighted though you enjoyed the full unlimited a la carte. Thank you for being brave and coming to the most northerly resort in Maldives... we are working hard with the available airline carriers to improve the connections to align with more international flights as they have also been adversely affected by the lack of tourists in Maldives, so we remain hopeful that this can only improve as the world navigates through the new normal. We hope we can welcome you back to your island and so very happy it was worth it and offered you the down time you deserved. warmly, Karen on behalf of the JAM Family
