We went to this hotel to relax and we got it. The island was an ideal place for us: beautyful beach with white sand, wonderful coral and various underwater world (fishes, sharks, mantras and so on), excellent service and food, and, of course, perfect weather.

The Royal Island was very nice, but the rooms are dated. The beds did not get changed every day, for a 5* I'd expect better especially after it would rain and the rooms would have ants etc coming in and into your bed. I did ask the young man that was looking after my room if I can have the... More

Excellent location, a fantastic beach. Wonderful wildlife in the water. The bungalow right on the beach. Delicious food, great selection. Very helpful front desk. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Impeccable cleanliness. What I liked: the open bathroom! All in all really enjoyed ourselves. definitely go back! It was indeed a royal serving section!

We were in the hotel for our honeymoon and everything was excellent. The beaches and the water were clear, we even saw fish passage. The service was excellent, the food was amazing. We were there during the wet season but fortunately the rain was occasionally and it didn't interrupt our vacation.

In my opinion this island is an ordinary resort, far from 5 star. It was a quite stay, but with low Entertainment activities. Unfortunately the courts were too outdated. Maldives is amazing, but this island still have much work to deserve the category to which it belongs.

Fantastic, idyllic island resort. You can watch sunrise and sunset every day and walking around the island takes not more than 45 mts. Excellent staff. Quite a few activities such as scuba, snorkelling, jet skiing, shark feeding etc. Good food but limited Indian options though. Overall fantastic experience.

This is a one island - one resort type of place. Be prepared and be amazed that the whole resort is situated on a mini jungle type of island, which is surrounded by nature (palm trees, bushes) and living creatures as well (ants, small crabs, bats, lizards, etc.) It's a new experience to be away from all the civilized stuff...
