Not only did the ocean waters and sandy beaches look even better in person, but the entire experience was a wonderful vacation. Additionally, we had a minor medical situation and the onsite doctor, Dr. Dema was wonderful; the hotel manager, Ally was also wonderful. We highly recommend this property!

2/10 Poor

We had asked evening transport during the way back since day 1. We were told they will inform us even though we asked to be notified in advance so many times. Nobody came back until 12pm noon time, and they said in 15 minutes airplane will depart. This resulted our arrival to Mahe airport 11 hours earlier than our flight to Dubai. It was a totally disappointing experience. Furthermore, food is horrible. We have seen hotel employees were systematically entering misleading positive comments about this facility. Stay away, there are so many places in Dubai which would not ruin your holiday

10/10 Exceptional

Staff: the service at this resort is unparalleled, with the resort staff going out of their way to meet and exceed all of your needs. Special thanks to Mohammed at guest relations, the lovely team at the main restaurant who took care of us all week, and Shaheen our room boy, as well as the staff at Maldives airport making the seaplane transfer as seamless as possible. The service is truly exceptional at the resort--hopefully the staff will be taken care of during the six month shutdown for renovations coming up in April. Water Villa: the semi water Villa was absolutely amazing, with a beautiful spacious deck and a massive outdoor bathroom. The Villa itself was really nicely appointed with everything you could need, and it was a lovely experience to be able to wake up and jump in the shallow water straight from your room! Water shoes are recommended for those who are sensitive to walking on sharp floors, but it was also doable without. Food: we were consistently impressed by the buffet food at the main restaurant. Over the course of seven days each lunch and dinner was varied and different, often taking on themes. Breakfast has mostly the same dishes on offer but we didn't find an issue with that. We were amazed at the quality and authenticity achieved by the chefs given how remote the island is! They even took requests for certain cuisines and added a few dishes to appeal to my family's tastes. The dessert in particular was amazing, make sure to try the panna cotta!
