13 nights away at short notice, we had a beach villa (I think the best option on this island), straight out the back doors onto a deck, then uninterrupted on to white coral sand to a crystal clear lagoon. Excellent food with first class service. a choice of at least 30 meals at each sitting. Fantastic snorkelling at any time, with a host of other sports and past times available, including a first class spa.The room boys making up the room twice a day, complete with a turn down service, we wanted for nothing. Two weeks that we definitely won't be forgetting any time soon. Read less

We were there just a few days before, we stayed on Water Villa, it was breathtaking and such a relaxing. For people who like diving and snorkeling it’s best resort. In food they need to improve. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Food great, service wonderful. Fish life stupendous! Currents outside reef can be strong so go in upstream and float down! Stayed in water bungalow, masses of storage space and great beds and shower. Coffee machine nice touch too. Just lovely. Been to Maldives loads and this is a lovely friendly island.
