Would go back but only for the Spa and Nature
Older property in the Maldives but is well maintained. With an older property you expect the staff to be well trained but this was not the case for the main restaurant staff. They were unfriendly to the point of being rude/indifferent. Basic manners was lacking e.g. thank you, you're welcome etc. It didn't exceed our expectations nor did it meet them for a 5* category hotel. The Spa was out of this world. The food at times was bad e.g. a beef curry that I had reminded me of when I was a student and ate frugal meals which came out of a tin. Basic food like burgers were great. We would go back but just for the Spa and nature. Iris and Faris from reception were engaging and professional. The location is perfect as you don't need a sea or domestic plane transfer.

beautiful maldives
the island is obviously beautiful but everywhere in the maldives is... Amazing points - Water and beaches are beautiful - hotel is expensive but not as a few other 5 stars hotels I've been in before in the madlives - short boat ride from Male to the island its about 20 mins - the beach villa that we stayed in was great because of we had a toddler so its a step out to the beach Negative points - Hotel staff look overly worked and tired and not always in the mood - hotel doesn't offer WIFI everywhere expect bar and rooms - No kids club or child care services - Only one restaurant and second option would be a bar close by - Island is too small so if you're going for more than 3 days not much to do - Food quality is average or less not fancy for a 5 stars hotel - No jetski activity
