We had been mir than 12 times at a Maledives island but this was definitely the best one for us.
There are only 79 rooms. 29 Watervillas and 50 Beachvillas. That means no more than roundabout 150 guests at the same time.
The Beachvillas are nicely renovated and have a lot of space. A huge terrace with double daybed, table and two chairs are provided.
Each Villa has its own umbrella and sunbeds at the beach. Every morning the sunbeds are prepared with Matts and towels.
We took „all intclusive“ packages and the food was really excellent. I am a little picky with food. But it was awesome. The tge most fresh tuna sashimi I ever had. Every day.
All waiters are very friendly and helpful.
Everyone made big efforts to make you feel comfortable.
If you have any medical issues the island-doctor is very nice and well educated.
The reef has plenty of fish. Snorkelling inside and outside the barrier is good.
Sometimes are strong currents at outside reef.
Diving is also good. The organisation of the divingcenter could be improved. The diving prices here are high compared to other islands.
SPA is small but good. By a package at arrival, it’s 20% less then.
The only thing to complain about are the many exceptions of the all inclusive package. Some rules are hard to explain. Coffee is included but cappuccino not. For instance.
If you spend your vacation there you will not regret.
We definitely will come back next year.
We stayed in a beach Villa on left side of island, as shown in the picture, so we had the benefit of large area of beach bathed in sun throughout the day. All the villas are similar in layout, but some have very little available beach space. Only one restaurant servicing the 75 accommodation units, but the food really was excellent, catering for all tastes. we were on the island for 9 days and the menu was completely different for lunch and dinner on every day, no repetition of menu while we were resident.
