    Stunning and luxurious upscale resort at a private island. The beauty of the island is breathtaking. The service is impeccable and the rooms were very clean. It worths the price tag and more. The infinity pool is gorgeous and we especially loved the private pool at the water bungalow. The staff was extremely friendly. I highly recommend it.

    Good five star Resort

    The resort is great and you will surely enjoy your stay. Water villas are spacious and well furnished and have nice bathrooms. Spa experience is excellent for both the facility and the therapists skills. The resort is close to Male and you only need 25 min by boat to arrive. However, this means you still can see the capital island. Port, and other surrounding islands lights in the night over the horizon. It has several restaurants, but the selection and taste are average.
