I don't have words for describing how much I enjoyed the time in this little corner of paradise! All the people of the staff are kind and with a smile on their face that is the best way to start and finish the day. Kind, welcoming people.. it's really important! The buffet is amazing and there is a wide range...

On arrival at airport in Male, Maldives, we were told by AAA, island's owners, that it was overbooked and we couldn't go. We have seen them do this to others on previous holidays, and learnt that they have done this to many holiday makers this year. They try to bump you to one of their other underbooked islands. Is this...

ENGLISH -> Three nights in the dog house at resort price. This has been our experience at the Batalha Hotel in Maldives. We were already fully aware of the type of hotel we were going to and we did not expect luxuries or nonsense. We went there because of our passion for snorkeling and coral reefs. We had booked a...

Fantastic little island with some of the best shore diving I have ever done. The boat dives nearby did not disappoint either. A quiet, picturesque escapist's dream with perfect beaches. Food was very good, highly recommended.

Just got back from Bathala Island Resort. First time at the Maldives. My husband dives, I snorkle: perfet place for both activities. But let's analyze the place. It is mainly a diver/snorkler kind of place. No animation (thank god!), no sea bungalows (thank god), no fancy stuff. Only great barrier reef surrounding the whole area. And this is one of...

We spent 6 nights in Bathala in December 2014. The coral reef is amazing and you will regularly meet sharks, turtles, eagle-rays and countless colored fishes: I think we saw at least one of each of the fishes that you find on the typical "coral reef fishes brochures". The sight of the corals and of the underwater world snorkeling here...

I really struggle to understand what people find so appealing about this island. Yes it's naturally beautiful but you're in the Maldives, it's going to be stunning! The accommodation is absolutely dreadful for the cost - damp, peeling paint, terrible mattresses, non existent lighting, leaking roofs - just all round shabby. There's a constant queue of people at reception asking...

“Bungalows 140 to 146 are the best since they have a great sunset view, they are in front of a large beach with a big lagoon and they are far away from the generator which does not disturb for the noise (it is very quiet, especially at night), but sometimes you can smell its fuel in the area of bungalows 107 to 115.”

“Although Bathala has great beaches all around, the best side of the Island for the beach in July/Aug is the North or West. There is no real noise in the evenings as the Island does not have loud theme nights or special entertainment evenings... Perfect!”
