We went with our two children (11, 14). It was perfect for us, and we didn't mid so much the kids around the pool. Honeymooners might be a little put off - but then there is always the beach instead... Read more . More 'family' than uber couple idyll. The food was superb for the all inclusive buffet - best all inclusive we have ever done, and although the drinks were not totally free flowing there was a good selection. To get here was another flight from male to a small island (20 mins), and then the speedboat to the island - this was ok, although watch out were to go when you hit male (look for the little booth / stand). The rooms are very slightly dated - but ok, everything obviously within a reasonable walking distance. The one thing that I didn't like so much was the artificial rock barrier that rings the island - understanding that its vital to stop the island eroding, but it does spoil the view a little. Although it made a great artificial reef for fish spotting. Overall - if you get the right price for this place, and have kids - totally go for it. We loved it. If you are on a bigger budget and looking for high end ultra cool Maldives - look elsewhere. Read less
Our honeymoon holiday in November 2014 was a dream come true, with excelent services, delicious variety of food, nice and helpfull staff, and a quiet comfortable room surrounded by exotic luxurious... Read more vegetation and beautifull blue sea, which by the way was full with fishes, we even had the chance to see and swim with a turtle just in front of our house. Ideal honeymoon vacation, and i dont regret traveling so far for it. Would definately come back . Read less
I am rarely one that writes reviews unless I am exceptionally impressed or subject to extremely bad service. summary bad -you pay for your own drinks with half board, alchol is expensive $18 for two... Read more shots of baileys -even UK Savoys don't charge that, cant take alchol into or out of the country. summary good- food amazing, staff incredible, spa massage simply the best, free activities table tennis, squash, snokerlling equipments hire for free, house keeping twice a day if requested, I start with my only bad point -alchol is expensivvvvve - we paid $18 dollars for two shots of baileys and $36 for two shots of brandy. a whole bottle of baileys would cost me Â£10, even at the Savoys in London you wouldn't pay18. something I also thought was cheeky is I couldn't buy baileys at duty free into the country on grounds that its not allowed, muslim country etc but I was like why do they then sell it there. best not to sell it at all. and on our way back to the UK, we took a lovely bottle of champagne we had been given by the hotel for our honeymoon but this was seized by the customs saying you couldn't take it out -didn't quite understand that logic either. The Island was amazing, the staff took customer service to a new level -ab amir who look after our room was beyond satisfactory, housekeeping twice a day -can you imagine that. Anna at the Spa had gifted hands. it rained for a few days as it was raining season, but this wasnt bad as umbrella were provided. Food is an important factor for me and the spread laid out at island hotel is out of this world. you would think how many different ways can you make a breakfast buffet interesting but they sure did do this every day.

Read more Quiet, relaxing, full sport activities, very good food, perfect clean beach houses, smiling employees... everything is done for the client to be the only one on this beautiful island. If you want to dive, the center is great, if you want to have massages, the spa is a paradise. The minuses for me are the unexisting Entertainment in the evening, all extras are a bit expensive and the rocks are quite near to the beach to separate the lagoon from the reef. Read less
