This was the best honeymoon ever. We stayed in the over the water villa and we had the full board meal plan so only paid for drinks. The room was immaculate and comfortable. The wall AC worked well and kept the room cool as long as the curtains were pulled shut. The stairs to the water were the best thing about it all. The staff were amazing and we got to know a few of them through the week. The food was top notch except for breakfast(and I'm a really picky eater FYI). Things didn't stay warm on the buffet for breakfast. And that's pretty much my only complaint of the whole trip. You can always have something fresh made by the omlet/pasta bar chef. All water is bottled and has to be purchased unless you have all inclusive. The reef around the island is BOOMING with hundreds of different fish. Beautiful snorkeling. In the morning reef sharks hang out close to the beach by the bar. We did the manta ray excursion with the dive center staff. It is a MUST DO. And you don't have to be an olympian to do it. I'm of average activity level daily and did fine with the ocean currents during the snorkel with the mantas. We also did the sunset cruise. It was fun, but you don't really see the full sunset because of the wall of moisture. We did a couples massage. It was more than fairly priced and she was really great, I almost fell asleep a couple times. The sea plane transfers are arranged by the resort and is a nice little adventure. You get a sky view of the atolls.

Everything since we arrived at the resort by speedboat to our departure was amazing and surpassed our expectations based on other reviews and photos. The island is simply stunning and the perfect place to relax and unwind. Every single member of staff that we had any dealing with could not have been more helpful and professional in their service. We would certainly recommend this resort and will hopefully be returning there at some point in the future.

Nice place, pain to get to
Overall, the place is very lovely. The water is beautiful. There is a lot of effort into the gardening and the design of the Island. Room was very nice but could use a little bit of maintenance. The over the water lagoon room has a great view of the ocean and sunset, but be careful going down the stairs as they can be slippery. Water outside is shallow enough to swim in. Overall probably a 3.5 to 4 star hotel. The restaurants all have a nice view of the ocean. I suggest you get the all inclusive package (or at least one meal beyond breakfast) as the buffet meals are super expensive (50 for lunch, 60 for dinner). The Thari restaurant was excellent, but the portions were small in most cases. Really good deserts. Staff were nice. We were greated well and the restaurant staff and gardeners were generally friendly during our visit. They do clean the rooms and treat for pests outside, but you might still see some ants and roaches in your room. The only problem was when our departure to Male by seaplane got messed up. Not sure if this is the resort's fault or the airway's. For a flight leaving Male at 9pm, they booked the seaplane at 430pm. Since hotel check out is between 10:00 and 12:00pm (varies), I cannot understand why they did not book an earlier flight. Who wants to stay 5 hours after check out? Had I known this, I would have booked our trip differently. Overall, it is worth staying but arriving and leaving can be difficult.
