    nice , remote, peaceful, not worth the money there are better resorts at 5 star

    the property was nice and clean a few nice touches for my daughter. there was lots of ants and lizards inside the room and hundreds of hermit crabs outside, unfortunately with children this wasn’t ideal.

    Its and absolutely amazing property, by not having a large number of rooms you hardly see any other resort guests and have a total island for yourself feel and service is done right. Well organized and eclectic varietyof restaurants and Breakfast , which is served in A beautiful location staff is always eager to help and has their full attention on your needs. They'd make almost anything that you want . Resort's staff takes care of you throughout the resort, Butler services are great they organise your day and make sure you have all that you need .They are very responsive in their communication through WhatsApp directly. We had a great time on the on site water sports. Excursions are well organised and safe ,dolphin watching with sunset was heavenly. Shout out to Fubu the butler, Marian the room manager and excellent wait-staff Zola, huseena. Water villas are larger than most in Maldives and well maintained, views from rooms are truly exceptional. Staff and other guests were mindful of COVID restrictions, getting on-site testing before flying back was very convenient .
