Beautiful Island
Beautiful place to visit once, great weather, beautiful water and beaches, not happy with the fact that alcohol was expensive and prohibited in the Maldives entire country. Not allowed to take a personal bottle to resort and taken away at airport arrival to the Maldives, but they did return bottle to me upon leaving country.

Ruined my holiday
First of all, there is nothing bad to say about the Maldives. And that is all this resort has going for it, the location. I spent over $20 making phone calls prior to arrival to make flight arrangements. I was asked to call back again, and again, and again. The final phone call resulted in the agent giving me a time to check in at the airport. When we arrived, well before the time given, our names were marked as No Show and our flight had already departed. We sat for 5 hours at the airport with no information. And when complaints were lodged, we were again told to come back later, not once, but twice. Staff kept saying that they did not have control over the flight times. Well, you had control in making sure that the CORRECT times were given. We originally wanted to ask for late check out, thinking it would be fair to make up for an afternoon lost. But after our stay, we couldn't wait to get away. Hotel was stingy, only giving ONE small bottle of water each day. A can of coke cost us $4.5, BTW. It's not just overpriced, that's blatant price gouging. You did not have any other dining options other that was is assigned to you, down to the minute... and staff were incredibly rude and obnoxious. After making yet another mistake on our departure flight, we were essentially harassed the entire morning to leave. They came to our door at 7am, then again at 10am, for a departure at 11:45am. We sat in the lobby for over an hour. Please, go somewhere else. What a joke of a resort.

Good place for a vacation
Excellent resort with a lot of room type options. Stayed in a Water bungalow, which was a wonderful experience. This is a must try in Maldives. Also, take the opportunity to observe the night sky here. Our west facing water bungalow offered unbelievable views of stars and even faint views of the Milkyway galaxy cloud (late October) on nights of clear skies. Rooms were excellent and well worth the price. Overall, all facilities including the restaurants, resort activities and most service is good. Only complaint is that some Waiters in restaurants do not serve Indian guests the way they do others. I think they just assume that they will not get a tip and do not care to serve, which is a shame. Apart from this, it is a very good place to enjoy a vacation overall.

Great property, thug management
The hotel gives you an invoice without a breakup. They overcharge you. If you bring it to their notice, they change it back immediately to the correct amount. It seems like a lot of travelers have shared this feedback. Also a lot of fellow travelers faced the same problem. We were overcharged by 500$. The corrected the invoice after we showed them proof receipts.
