Simply beautiful resort with great dive shop!
The resort is simply beautiful! The accomodation is beautifully appointed ( we booked a sunset pavilion villa) and it was stunning. The resort was almost full during our visit but most of the time we felt like we were the only ones there. It is designed in such a way that ensures lots of privacy. The dive centre was fantastic! Gabrielle and his team did a great job. We completed our open water and our advanced open water course with Crystal, she was so wonderful and patient and we really enjoyed her company and friendship. She went out of her way to make us feel totally at ease during our dive training and took us from beginner to advanced divers in 6 days! She was an excellent instructor! All the staff were excellent and super friendly, in particular our room staff and bar staff always making the perfect cocktail! This resort is great value for Maldives and just pristine! Highly recommended!

Great resort!!
Great resort, I have nothing bad to say about the hotel. We had a great time. We are couple 30's years old and we stayed at sunset villa with privet pavilon and it was great. We really like the side of 300's rooms. We did a lot of shnorkling and scuba diving. The house reef is really beautiful and the diving center is great and professional like everything else in the resort. The outside shower was amazing. The food was really good and variety. All the stuff was so nice and helpful. We came really spontaneously after tow months of traveling in india and it was the best decision we did. Great resort Thanks Kihaad we will come back for sure.

Beautiful but expensive.
A magic place. Nobody told us that all transactions are in US dollars, which creates a problem if you want to personally tip someone and you cannot get dollars. The strongly recommended use of the safety deposit box in the room is a joke, because the box is sitting loose on a shelf in the cupboard. Reception said: 'but it is quite heavy'. Otherwise, this place is as close to heaven as you might hope. The beach, the room, the snorkeling, warm all day, etc.
