    Very nice personnel. Our booking afforded us butler services and our butler (Prashant) was a magician!

    Good hotel, but carerul with what villa you get.
    Great hotel overall. Got a little upset by the first villa we got (109, but all villas in that area should probably be different price tag, as ocean is rather far and walking to it is sorta unpleasant), but our butler Arka solved that issue right away. He was also a highlight of the trip - we've been to plenty hotels with butler services, but that was the first one where we really felt taken care of. Last minute restaurant reservations, taking care of all spa appointments and pcr tests - everything is under control by Arka 👍 Hotel facilities are on high level, there are haute cuisine restaurants with sophisticated menu, ae well as buffet ones. Good table tennis racquets also surprised us - usually its just piece of cheap wood, but here they were rather decent. Snorkeling is kinda ok, but nothing too fancy, at least from what we managed to find Make sure you visit mini museum of local Maldivian village which is near tennis courts. Spa is also great, loved glass flours under massage table - that was my first encounter with live octopus there! Also,i would like to mention reservations team, which helped us arrange transfer to next resort, charging almost 3 times less for a speedboat, compared to what other hotel wanted.
