We had a dhonakulhi residence receive on the side with the reef. Size really very big for two persons, the condition was very good and it was 2 times cleaned daily. Wi-fi included, we had half board, we could in the main restaurant and in the asian restaurant food, usually a la carte, no surcharge for any food. Universe inclusive i would not recommend if you don't every day wants to drink wine because it is very expensive. There were many germans but also lots of russians and chinese there, the russians are of course negative, however one sees on ... this island so and so only if the food was not so bad.

    2 restaurants, 1 bar Quality and quantity top, we have puzzled as fresh salad in this quality on this island comes. There are great fish selection and one can also wagyue steaks order, really amazing the meat! The atmosphere in the restaurant was great, usually you sit outside directly on the jetty to the sea and all kinds of fish. The prices for the beverages are very expensive, we have average 40 American Dollar during dinner paid, since we didn't have wine we arrived relatively cheap of them. You also get free mineral water thus one comes well over the day!

    Here i must the only negative experience signs which you for this fantastic island must accept. The island is very north and one must from male again a domestic flight to take. Supposedly you could also a seaplane charter the costs but because of the distance very much. We are with condor traveled and around 10 o'clock in the morning in times and the connection would be at 10,40 which we no longer have been able to achieve, so we were au the next flight at 14,20 booked, was then 3 hours late and we have almost 7 hours in male at the airport spend. The flight to hanimadhoo would only 40 minutes, but now a new airport terminals and so you need at least 1,5 hours after hanimadhoo, but then it already with the speedboat in 20 minutes to the island. The return journey was also very arduous, but we would still stay there again.

    There is nothing to complain about, the butler service for us was really great, we could with the butler go snorkeling, his birthplace, visit, boat tour and otherwise everywhere tips to the island received. Room cleaning was great the cleaning staff came at least 2 times per day. With mathematics have some employees on the island not so and we had to twice the invoices fix since we otherwise too much would have paid. We really felt very well cared for, if we wanted.

  • Sport & Leisure
    6.0

    We have mainly snorkeling and not Tennis, billiards or table tennis played as offered. The pool was very large and mostly empty, the sea has us the pool not so cranky. There are a variety of excursions, such as to nearby islands, snorkelling, scuba diving, as well as tours for fishermen. The pool is a little dated and there was a stairs renovated when we were there.

Couldn't be better! Because of the size of the villas with private estate and private beach and butlersystems especially good suitable for families with lots of children. For divers a dream: one is always the only boat on the diving spot and mantas without limits! read hotel review

Since 11 years we are traveling to the maledives. We have seen most of the top hotels.Some are more exclusiv. In terms of size of the iland an conditions of beach and reef nothing could come close. You feel like robinson cruso,but pampert on a high level.By the way the breakfast is outstandig.If you like nightlife ,don,t come. By the way : Don,t come anyway! We love to keep it our secret. read hotel review
