Perfect package in the Maldives

Tiverton, United Kingdom

For us this was the perfect package, islands large enough that it feels very secluded or quiet wherever you are, but small enough to give you that Maldivian island feel you are looking for. We had a sunset junior suite, rooms huge and outdoor bathroom is stunning. Minibar well restocked, including wine and beer,also various snacks once they know what you like you get more of that twice daily. Opens out straight onto the beach where there are loungers just for you and umbrella. They provide everything you can think of from suntan lotion, bug lotion and various other bug repellant items to be honest didn't need these got bitten a couple of times during two week stay only. Flip flops, rain coats, slippers, dressing gowns and all toiletries Inc lip balm!. The premium all inclusive package allowed you to dine at just veg which was very good as often as you like, and the sunset 1 visit per 7 night stay, also exceptionally good, the spice buffet restaurant was varied and one of the best buffets I've had whilst at a resort, for me a highlight was ceylon bliss the street food shack midway on the island, if you like spicy you'll love it. Teppanyaki restaurant is the only chargeable one and it is worth at least 1 visit, great food and good show to go with it. You are assigned a guest relations person and they will arrange all your restaurants or trips and check in with you daily, they use what's app which is great so daytime if you fancy anything like ice to the villa you can just what's app them, genius. Included are 2 daily snorkel trips and sunset cruise or fishing, and trips to local islands. Entertainment is low key and you can participate as much or little as you like, stingray feeding and fish feeding daily, plus whilst there is no house reef there is a area at the end of jetty that's worth checking out. The snorkel trips make up for this if you want to be out daily and personally I thought this was better than the same house reef every day as there more variety and chance to see different things, you can dive and pay for turtle and manta snorkeling. Also included are non motor sports. You can hire bikes for a nominal 1 dollar charge daily or use the frequent electric shuttles that just go up and down all day. To sum up this is a exceptional island with lots or not depending on how you feel to do, all staff are welcoming and friendly from the landscaping chaps to guest services. Of particular mention during our stay were Lizzie, our assigned guest lady, Thappa from Nepal on the shuttle buses, Solah our room cleaner, Anna in spice and sunset, and Mariam at the Dive and Sail.i will adrees the building work that's occurring as I know others have, did it interfere at all with our stay, No we barely heard a thing and on a few occasions when we did it was brief and non intrusive, you could only really see it when you went on the jetty and it's away from all current facilities on the island.

Another Wonderful Relaxing Holiday

Altrincham, United Kingdom

My wife and I stayed for 12 nights (22nd Mar - 3rd Apr). It was the third time for us to stay on Kanifushi and it was our best experience to date. On arrival at the island we received a very warm welcome, especially as it was our third visit. Our accommodation was in a Sunset Junior Suite, which had a good amount of space, nice bathroom facilities and direct access to the beach. The island was, as always, well looked after and well presented. There are seven different coral reefs, offering easy snorkelling within a 20 minute boat ride and we have now been to most of them. They all allow you to see hundreds/thousands of fish. The staff on the island are always happy and friendly, and Resort Manager, Carlton, is exceptional. Overall another excellent holiday.
