Maldives has always been by favourite destination! This is my third visit but every time I come here , I get the feeling I should quit my life in Bombay & move here , the only biggest drawback being my dog-Laila will not be allowed. Gangehi is the ultimate resort for me, our water villa had sting rays hanging around....

We wanted a very special holiday to celebrate 25 years married, and having had several previous holidays in The Maldives I wanted a small, secluded island, with great food and great diving. Gangehi exceeded my expectations. The food was exceptional, given everything has to be flown in, I was amazed at the variety and quality of the salads, veg, fish,...

This hotel is situated in a stunning environment, rooms are nice, food is good and most staff are very friendly and keen to help. The hotel is also surrounded by a beautiful reef for snorkling. Although this hotel was definitely not the most expensive to book a room, the real costs are generated from the moment you arrive. Although we...

+ Wonderful beach and perfect water temperature + Best buffet food in my life + Very nice staff + Great diving - Several of the facilities could use some renovation - Garbage handling could in general be improved in Maldives - If you find a cheap deal on internet (as we did) drinking water is not included

The island is picturesque and enchanting and the staff is very friendly. Before arrival weather reports had us pretty concerned but (perhaps from luck) we had a majority of beautiful sun-filled days. It is true that when it rains, it pours - and usually it happened overnight. The island is fumigated, so mosquitos (and bugs in general) were minimal. For...

“The overwater villas are pricier but offer the best value because of the unbeatable view of the lagoon. They are also quieter.”
