A top Maldives hotel
excellent hotel, top service! a great place for Maldives vacation. starting from airport pick up to escorting all the way thru check-in to departing gate, the service was no issue. a top class hotel. the only problem is the marine life around the hotel wasn't ideal. it lacks the coral reef and marine life life fish, etc. compared to some other hotels in Maldives, this is an under average one. I was told the hotel is consulting marine biologist to solve the problem, but it won't improve for a long time.
