Vabulous !

Poole, United Kingdom

We spent 10 days on the island with friends celebrating our wedding anniversaries - we wanted somewhere special and we were not disappointed. From the airport pick up to the return, all the staff were focussed on ensuring we had a great time. Special thanks to Abraham who served us at breakfast, lunch and dinner - always with a smile and a chat. Thohir took care of our room, and was responsible for the amazing bed decorations on our anniversary and my birthday. Rajesh, who was on the grill at lunch and mains for dinner, has a smile that lit up the day, whilst Don ferried beer/wine/cocktails from the bar. We had an amazing back reviver massage in the Spa - easy to see why it's so highly rated. Whilst we just wanted to unwind and relax, we did some paddle boarding as well as swimming/snorkeling in the lagoon and round the house reef. We needed to try to work off the meals (we were full board). I think it's difficult to cater for a wide variety of tastes, but the food was fantastic. Plenty of fish as you would expect, but the lamb from the grill was superb. Absolutely loved it. Hope the island's football team get a few more wins before the end of the season !

Amazing Holiday!

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous weeks stay. We have previously visited the Maldives 7 times staying at various resorts and was a little apprehensive that this island may be too small for us. However that was definately not the case. We stayed in a beachfront villa (35) which was in a great location with plenty of privacy and snorkelling right outside. The stingray feeding was another highlight. Again, as there was only one restaurant we thought we may get bored with the meals, but there was a buffet on the Sunday when we arrived, and the Maldivian buffet on Friday evening, and the other days a set menu was available with plenty of choices. The tuna was some of the best I have ever tasted. A special thanks goes to Hassan for looking after us so well during our stay, and the service we received from everyone else on the island was excellent. Would definately visit again.
