We have booked Garden view room for a night which turned into a nightmare. After an hour in the room, we noticed lot of ants all over the bed and in the room. We requested to change the room for which staff was very unhappy. Instead of changing the room, they sprayed insects spray all over the bed and beddings and advised us that its all ok now. Absolutely brilliant response to expect us to sleep on the bedding which was just being sprayed with insect killer spray in front of us. After lot of frustrating conversation, they did change the room which was worse than the previous room. Room had a strong insect spray smell which was sprayed just before we entered into the room. We did see lot of dead ants in the room which was pointed out to the staff. In the evening, we noticed water was leaking from the sink. Their response was that we should have checked it when they gave us the room. As we were there only for one night, we have decided to spend our time outside, not in the room so we were blamed for it. Also the moment we turned off the light to sleep around 12pm, one of the light started to flash which was unbearable even in shut eyes so we had to ring the reception for resolution. Around 1pm, staff agreed to take the bulb off. What makes it even more worse is the non stop loud drilling noise from building work at the island. We spent the whole night with the face masks and removing ants from our beddings. In my 15 years of travelling, this is the worse place I have stayed. This resort policies are against the customer care. We were not the only guests who were complaining and the only answer we received is that they are going to investigate. This resort has spoiled our first trip to such a beautiful country. This review is not against the staff because if management don't care about their guests, what the staff is going to do. Please do avoid this place at every costs if you would like to enjoy your stay in Maldives.

My husband and I stayed here in December 2021 and we had a great time there. The staff were amazing with outstanding customer service. Special mention to some staff like the executive chef, Sagar, Akil, Albin and Gayathri as they were exceptional in meeting our needs. They have breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet with a variety of delicious dishes. We highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay and enjoy a vacation in Maldives!
