Staff: the service at this resort is unparalleled, with the resort staff going out of their way to meet and exceed all of your needs. Special thanks to Mohammed at guest relations, the lovely team at the main restaurant who took care of us all week, and Shaheen our room boy, as well as the staff at Maldives airport making the seaplane transfer as seamless as possible. The service is truly exceptional at the resort--hopefully the staff will be taken care of during the six month shutdown for renovations coming up in April. Water Villa: the semi water Villa was absolutely amazing, with a beautiful spacious deck and a massive outdoor bathroom. The Villa itself was really nicely appointed with everything you could need, and it was a lovely experience to be able to wake up and jump in the shallow water straight from your room! Water shoes are recommended for those who are sensitive to walking on sharp floors, but it was also doable without. Food: we were consistently impressed by the buffet food at the main restaurant. Over the course of seven days each lunch and dinner was varied and different, often taking on themes. Breakfast has mostly the same dishes on offer but we didn't find an issue with that. We were amazed at the quality and authenticity achieved by the chefs given how remote the island is! They even took requests for certain cuisines and added a few dishes to appeal to my family's tastes. The dessert in particular was amazing, make sure to try the panna cotta!

Wonderful beach

The best thing about this resort is the beach. Amazing! Incredible color, clear, cool. We just loved it! The staff is really friendly and they have night activities for pretty much everyday. I did get the impression that it is an Italian resort. Not a huge problem, but you can feel a little bit left out with you don't speak Italian. Nevertheless, we loved our stay and would definitely recommend the resort! If you like to drink, consider the all inclusive package. It's good value for money.
