Picky point but they could do with air conditioning in the public toilets, especially when you have to wear trousers for certain restaurants. Just be careful with the dive centre excursions. We had a bad experience with the night fishing where we didn't have any guidance...

The water sports,the pool in my villa,the beach bar and all the things here make me feel so good. All these make my honey moon unforgettable and memorable. I just feel my trip is too short to enjoy more here.

Fantastic place! Staff is very helpful, rooms - clean, charming, enough space. Meal - is fantastic: catch of day, salads, sushi and sashimi with local reef fish and mango juice, so delicious;) In addition- good place for snorkeling. We met barracudas, small reef shark, nudibranchs, unicorns and many other during the snorkeling on house reef.

Whilst the Maldives is unsurprisingly expensive it is made up for by the levels of quality, especially food and service. I had a special birthday whilst there and they really surprised me with a couple of treats that were really pleasing. 11/10 for that! The bikes to get around the villas is an excellent aspect but we did have difficulty...
