We were sent here as a result of the shutdown of Kuredu, how lucky were we! This resort is just stunning, we were shown to our villa which was an over water villa, the views were stunning. The room was second to none complete with wine cooler, mini bar, outside bath, a hammock that overhung the ocean everything we wanted and more. The room was very, very spacious a huge very comfortable bed and a walk in wet room, I don’t know where to stop, this place just kept giving. Any spirits, wine or beers taken from the cooler or fridge were replaced daily together with any chocolate (I loved the Bounty bars!!) all this was inclusive,we also received a welcoming bottle of Tattinger champagne on arrival together with a beautiful bowl of fruit (this was also replaced daily)
Our resort host was Anif he was there for us at any time of the night or day, he was very helpful and an all round professional, nice guy, thank you Anif for making our stay so perfect. Our room boy was Adhey he was amazing nothing was too much trouble for him, so polite and again professional I am sure you are an asset to the resort.
We met Dustin the Manager most days during our stay, what a genuine nice guy he stopped and chatted and we had many laughs with him, I’m sure he will remember my husband banging his leg on the marble water fountain in the restaurant! That was cause for many laughs. But seriously we would like to thank him for assisting in getting him bandaged up, no serious damage caused.
Our restaurant host was Munday, he looked after us at all meal times he even gave me the recipe for the coconut sponge which I so enjoyed whilst we were there, on the evenings that there was no coconut sponge he would go to the kitchen and bring some out for me, thanks Munday your a star and thank you for looking after us so well. The choice of food was amazing so many wonderful dishes, the chefs on the live cooking stations were second to none and really did serve up some really spectacular dishes, we really were spoilt for choice, thank you to all the chefs.
My husband snorkelled everyday and sometimes twice a day, he enjoyed every trip and saw some amazing fish everything from sharks to turtles.
All in all a fabulous holiday and would highly recommend this little piece of heaven to anyone, we will never forget this holiday, we really did not want to leave 3 days early because of flight disruptions as a result of Covid19, but at least we were lucky enough to have had the majority of our holiday. We will return to this paradise island in the future .
There was evening entertainment every night which was very good, the Maldivian night was very good entertainment.
This is an adult Only Island and if you are looking for loud disco type music this is not for you, the mood here is very relaxed and chilled with talented singers and musicians playing it was just perfect for enjoying your after dinner drinks, just can’t fault it, but hopefully you have gathered from all of this that we found it a truely amazing holiday. THANKS again to all of you for making our stay so memorable.
