Comfortable stay in beautiful property
The property is beautiful and just 15 minutes by speedboat from Male airport. Spread across a decent area, with multiple restaurants and beach points, its a great place to relax and unwind. Only suggestion could be to make the restaurants more easy on the pocket as they are so overpriced that no one uses them and everyone flocks to the buffet restaurant on meal packages.. This would be my only suggestion to make it more reasonable and for the restaurants to be more vibrant and full of people.

8/10 Very good

We have just returned from a week at this excellent resort. The facilities are to a very good standard. Virtually all of the staff were the most helpful and whilst not fair ( all so we must mention Amit Kumar- Head Chef and Ajay Singh- Chef who great care of the dietary needs of my Wife- Shaziya, David & Danat and a special mention to Cynthia at the main Restauant- for their friendly and attentive service. At the Orchid Spa - everyone but especially Joy. Robin for organising the glass bottom boat. Pro- Great variety of facilities and close to the beach wherever you stay. Beach villas are superb. 12-15 mins by speedboat. Con- They didn’t have us booked into the correct room on arrival. They could explain their telephone system better. Weather- there was a fairly strong westerly wind which had an affect on snorkeling but the east side of the island was sheltered. We only had a couple of downpours which each lasted about 45 mins with a little bit of cold cover otherwise lots of sunshine. The resort caters for children and the parents seemed well pleased. The pool and swim up bar is great. We were all inclusive and we were very pleased. Overall we would recommend and we are already planning a return.
