The hotel

Spread across three stunning islands in South Male Atoll, with gorgeous white beaches and sea views as far as the eye can see, this resort is a Maldivian paradise. Guests can enjoy crystal clear infinity pools, a range of delicious dining options, and water sports in the lagoon. Take relaxation to the next level, by indulging in a spa treatment at one of 22 over-water pavilions, before watching the sunset with a cocktail in hand. Children are catered for, with dedicated play areas, a kids club, and a teen hangout area. And there’s no need for a seaplane, as this resort is 45 minutes from the airport by speedboat – what a way to arrive!

Hana San is my housekeeper at Maldives Tours, and she has been in charge of a lot of Chinese guests, so she is very professional. She would go into detail about everything that was relevant to us and would help us book the project. She'll mark out some notes on the map, and she'll help us fill in the information on the app and tell us how to book the activity we want to play. If you encounter some questions to consult, she will also reply in a timely manner. All in all, she is a good housekeeper with five star reviews. The island of Olhuveli in Maldives is also quieter, with a very good scenery, clean beaches and not many people, which is very suitable for vacation. A great place to relax. Read less
