We had a beach villa. The villas are really big and in good condition. We had during our stay in-room wi-fi. Our booking included half board. Us much especially the number of guests from the asian area. It seems this hotel because of its proximity to the airport, since, in accordance with the employees, the length mostly on 2-3 days limited. Therefore tried all day long with camera and tripod on the island around for the best, the photos included. This can for europeans strange and was not always very pleasant. Bewertung lesen

    6.0

    Since we had booked half board, the breakfast and the dinner in the buffet restaurant 'vela' instead. The location of the restaurants is for us absolutely not understandable. There is no view of the sea. We are of the opinion, that this is a 5 star restaurant, with this situation a nogo is. The breakfast can on the terrace of the restaurants' turquoise ', which is right next to the' vela ' is, be purchased, this has to be but every morning explicitly when entering the restaurants say. We found in addition, that the 'vela' always was very loud. The architectural construction leaves some left nothing to be desired. Because of the asian guests, the buffet was almost exclusively on your culinary preferences aligned. Whoever typical maldivian specialities food, we can only advise the staff to report. We want us at this point thanks to the manager of the restaurants nazir thanks. Together with his very professional and attentive service understands it to fulfill the guests' wishes. After our 2. dinner, we were given every evening without asking, various local food on a plate nicely arranged. In addition each time a brief explanation of the different food. Unfortunately, in this hotel the kleidervorschrift the dinner not particularly considered. For a 5 star restaurant we can not understand it. Sometimes we even saw guests, with an open shirt or practically transmittive clothes for food appeared which partially really very disgusting. We maintained us during the day regularly at the chill bar. This is really breathtaking, with its large terrace on the sea. We would like to also at this point, a special thanks to the bar staff, especially the cook Nihal jayasundara and the barkeeper Sampath kumara for the great and friendly service express. As many reviews mention, the prices for drinks and food very high. If you book this hotel, this should be at the vacation budget into account. For us, there is however no reason this negatively, as we already first knew.

  • Service
    6.0

    The service in this hotel is really commendable. We felt from the first moment on (transfer to the hotel) very well cared for. The staff is extremely friendly and forestalling. However, noticed, that the friendliness and hospitality especially to the staff from india, sri lanka and the maldives limited. There was staff from europe, us much but on, that preferred this the guests from their own linguistic area looked after. With complaints the staff extremely competent and professional around. Solutions are within short time presented. All in all the 5 stars for the service absolutely right.

  • Sport und Unterhaltung

    The hotel has a fitness centre, the usual equipment contains. The center is air-conditioned and small water bottles are also available. Unfortunately, there was no desinfectant for the equipment. We find the just disgusting and the equipment before and after use each best even cleaned. Furthermore, much us up, that many beach chairs were defect at the beach and in a really bad condition. So if you want a deluxe bungalow (the garden of the hotel) had booked, the can a long time on the search at an appropriate beach chair at the beach to find. The pool may be on the 1st view look nice, but it lacks a pool bar (in the water) and the beach chairs were very close together. Not understandable for us, all the more the lying close beach was very long, to reach the sea. The pool couches are served. This means you can get food and drinks. What is lacking in the sun lounger. We have really missed and we are such a service in the 5 star area used all the more the management always eager is, the use of the guests suggest. They could have much more sales generating with, for example, a buggy with drinks around the island.

    Beachfront villas are, as mentioned, very nice and clean. But we had to change the room, as we were on the 1st room, especially on the beach very many mosquitoes had. The hotel is daily with specially smoke fogged, is the but not really what to have. Otherwise the rooms are really like in the description of hotel read. Also the cleaning was very good, and we had to really make an effort to our room boy in the 2 weeks once to meet him a tip at present. Unfortunately, the air conditioning but very noisy. This should be a consideration. It is very powerful but the sleeping needs peace, is often awake. This was us in all cases sunday

    The hotel is as already several times mentioned close to the airport. The transfer by speedboat took c. a. 30 minutes and was despite relatively high waves at this time of year very pleasant. For our 1st stay on the maldives, the hotel was perfect. With our next attendance we become but a, little further entfernteres hotel book, as the island of male is very good, and, therefore, it was always again on the civilisation is. So if you want the absolute seclusion, should the situation of the island at the time of booking but it is important to note.

The island is with about 450 meters 150 meters very well arranged, but we are still most of the time little or no other guests met. The beach and the rooms are very clean and well-maintained. One noticed also, that the island 2008 completely newly renovated. We loved the modern style and the architecture (reception and main restaurant vela very good. Free wi-fi internet access is pretty much on the whole island. The speed was about 0.4 megabyte/s downloadrate and 1.10 megabyte/s uploadrate. Not the brüller, but the connection was always reliable. For email, news, facebook, etc. The ... speed enough from. We had catering only breakfast, which is a financial mistake turned out. This later more. The guest structure was altogether quite pleasant. Mainly chinese, english and russian couples. A few families, with (mostly) well-behaved children. Bewertung lesen

    The island is located in the northern part of the south malé-atolls. The hotel is about 500 metres away from the island. The transfer from the airport male takes about 30 minutes and was carried out with a covered motorboat. Depending on the waves can be a very exciting pleasure are. We had in any case our fun. Also an elderly lady, the at the boat, after the shuttle still another smile on the lips. The island offers a 24-hour transfer service to, so a one-night stopover (no matter when the plane lands/starts) in male is not necessary. You can see in velassaru some other urlaubsinseln, including a müllverbrennungsinsel. This looks but far from as a holiday island. I have once in two weeks quite far in the horizon a small 'bonfire' ascend see. In my opinion really negligible.

    We have the glasbodenkajak and the jet ski is used. The glass bottom boat was much more than a 'opaque' and one sees the transparent floor virtually nothing. So you can confidently the cheaper, normal kayak choose. The jet skiing was for us a genuine highlight it vacation. It is a Yamaha vxr with a topspeed of over 100 kilometer per hour and an acceleration of 0a 50 kilometer per hour in 1.8 seconds. A hearty fun for the whole family ☺ to the steep prices: an hour glasbodenkajak (2-sitzer) costs gross 5 9.40 $and 30 minutes jet ski (2-sitzer) costs gross 2 07.90 $. But at least the rental for the snorkeling equipment free of charge. Further offered water sports are, of course, diving, windsurfing, kite surfing, water skiing, wakeboarding, jet skiing, catamaran sailing, fun tubes, bananaboot and deep-sea fishing. Otherwise there was still a fitness center, Tennis (equipment against fee) and table tennis.

    The staff is very friendly. No matter, whether gardeners, service, chef or sports-employee. They always had a nice welcome. Often, you asked, if everything is okay. To the fremdsprachenkenntnissen i can only say, that english fitnessman should. German is not spoken at all and understood. Since we were here in the indian ocean are, apart from that the service was perfect and the island apparently rare german vacation makes, i would like to this but not 'sun' in assessing skin. The room cleaning was excellent. Twice daily (with 9:00 a. m. and 6:30 p. m.) the roomboy and erledige efficient and thorough his work. Very positively to mention i would like, that the cleaning staff on the first day to us came and asked us, when we right, that he cleaned the room ☺ the deadline was always on time complied with. In the restaurant (we were always only in the main restaurant 'vela') was from the service was also nothing to complain about. The drinks come in a very short time and the staff was very attentive. Definitely 5 star. So service gadgets, such as, for example, napkin on the womb or the chair in which to sit reinschieben i could do however... If so which excite can, its highest pleasure ☺

    We had a free standing beach villa directly at the beach. We have even from the bed from the beach and the sea can see (room 201). Due to the vegetation can other beach villas but the view of the sea is not so good. Our villa was very stylish and had a fantastic bathroom ( indoor shower, outdoor shower, huge bathtub, very modern and luxuriously furnished) otherwise there were in the room a comfortable king-size bed, minibar, wine fridge, iPod-station, dvd player and a huge tv. Unfortunately only a german transmitter (Deutsche Welle), but who does get the tv in the Maldives. You can relax in the emergency dvds (or to take home). We had the entire villa wlan reception, even on the beach chairs at the beach.

  • Gastronomie

    Here is, despite the small island, much was offered. There is the main restaurant 'vela', in which you both breakfast, and lunch and dinner. On the other there was also asian, mediterranean and international à la carte restaurants and a snack bar by the pool. The first night we were in the 'vela' and the buffet (international) so thrilled, that we the à-la-carte restaurant didn't visit (although we made). There is a considered choice of starters, main courses and desserts. I have already larger buffets seen, however, the quality of the individual meals important, as a half-hearted mass preparation. Every day there was fresh fish, beef, chicken, lamb, chicken, turkey etc. Because of the Maldives there was only fish ☺ i thought, that especially the chicken always excellent prepared. My girlfriend was very impressed from the lamb. The other restaurants i can, as i said, not tell too much about it, since we didn't visited.

A fantastic island nearby the island male location. Short transfer time with the speedboat! Tastefully decorated bungalows and villas with much attention to detail. Several restaurants offer a excellent cuisine, that leaves nothing to be desired. Wonderful for snorkeling-the coral reef is just a few meters away from the beach. Bewertung lesen

Very nice hotel, really recommendable. We had the luck, that we instead of overnight stay with breakfast full board received. We had a good 10 days in a very beautiful bungalow spent. The food from the buffet could have been somewhat more diverse. The condition the hotel, house reef and beach are very good, even if-and this is, unfortunately, Maldives typical-unfortunately some idiots again and again parts of the corals wisht (respect for whales ☺ ). Small sharks and mantas also gladly times to the beach and let the tourists not disturb. Our bungalow had normal signs of usage (wasserspuren ... on the dance floor at the entrance, as well as a few stains on the wall). All in all a totally wonderful vacation. Bewertung lesen

Information from the hotel *

  • Location
    The boat arriving from the airport begins the approach to the resort from behind the island, making a broad sweep to enter its lagoon through a gap in the coral. From the sea, the island looks like a grove of coconut palms floating in the dreamy blue water of its private lagoon. The beach wraps the island in a soft cocoon of sand - a leisurely stroll for the devoted beachcomber and a blissful setting for romantic moments. The blue and gold of the horizon, the shades of green touching the lagoon, lend spectacular colour to this tropical hideaway. A resort that radiates elegance while offering a relaxed atmosphere - it is large enough to find quiet seclusion and small enough to share with loved ones.
  • Facilities include a lobby, hotel safe, as well as bar and dining facilities.
  • The hotel is blessed with a range of luxury accommodation designed to suit the demands of guests of good taste. All the rooms are comfortable with fantastic views of the beach and tropical gardens. An en suite bathroom, hairdryer, direct dial telephone, tea/coffee making facilities, individually adjustable air conditioning and a safe all feature as standard.
  • The fully air-conditioned gym, table tennis and floodlit tennis court are located in the centre of the island next to the spa. After a work out, the steam bath and plunge pool are ideal places to relax to ease tired muscles. The free-form pool with shaded Jacuzzi proves the perfect setting for whiling away the days with a fantastic sundeck and stunning views of the ocean. The lagoon which surrounds the island is ideal for snorkelling, canoeing and windsurfing. Alternatively, guests can relax on board one of our catamarans, while staff sail them to some of the most beautiful reefs in the area.
