My wife and I spent a week in Maldives for the first time, after some hectic times at our professional lives. Spent couple of evenings comparing the resorts and decided that it should be within a boat trip from the airport. Adaaran Rannalhi fit our budget and had such a nice reviews that we decided to book it. Went looking for relaxation, warm weather and beautiful surroundings and this was exactly what we found. The boat to the resort is literally leaving 20 meters from the airport terminal so it is just very easy. After 40 minutes boat trip the check-in was handled quickly and we got the room 125 at the far end of the island. Room was on ground floor (which we wanted) and access to sea was less than 10 meters from our door. The room was good and had all the necessities (air-con, fridge, good shower and bed) This end of the island was quiet in the evenings (went to sleep early thru the whole week) , the main bar near the reception at the other side has live music and not sure how long the play. 4 stars for sleep quality because of the couple above us on the 2nd floor had perhaps too many all inclusive drinks and started to move furniture and argue loudly during one night (this went on maybe good 1-2 hours) - of course just bad luck and not really the resorts fault - but a possible downside of ground floor. Days passed mostly sunbathing, reading and snorkeling (wonderful clear waters !! got to see black tip and nurse sharks, turtle, tons of colorful fish - I will never forget this) We brought our own finns and masks so didn't need to borrow and were ready to go all the time. I also did 40minutes instructed dive which was ok, but frankly speaking you see much more by snorkeling around the island. The food was really good and there is something for everyone. vegetarian, grilled, indian, salads, pasta etc.. dessert table also amazing. we had the complete all-inclusive with wines, beer and drinks included and particularly enjoyed sunset drinks in the bar at the far end of the island. This was also the time when nurse sharks arrived and went lying down below the water villa piers. If you want to charge your batteries in beautiful surroundings, book it - you won't be disappointed. We will probably return.

The hotel is not far from Male’, and the speedboat is about 40 minutes. We have four big four packs of speedboats to the hotel, a speedboat of $200, and a good speedboat. Go to the hotel terminal and think that the staff members are moving our luggage, we will leave, who knows not. Then we went back to carry the luggage to the lobby, and others said that someone would help me move. The staff then took the cart and moved to the lobby. Checking in is a bit of a hassle, and I have to fill out the form one by one. Someone can speak Chinese and it is quite good to communicate. The room is very big. I know that we have two beds and two rooms. We have already added a bed. It is 25 dollars per child, including bed and three meals a day. Counting Christmas, we have more than 1300 extra beds for three meals a night. It's quite cost-effective. The three meals are still rich, can eat, and there are three or four kinds of fruits. They are passion fruit, cantaloupe, red pomegranate, guava, etc. Anyway, I think it is better than I imagined. After all, the Maldives needs to be sent outside. In the afternoon, the bar arrived at pizza and burgers, etc., and waited for more than an hour. I found that cooking in the Maldives was not slow. I didn’t dare to eat there. It was convenient to have three meals a day, but there was no water. Water needs to be paid separately, which is much more expensive than domestic ones. Later, when we were eating, we took the water we sent every day to the restaurant for dinner. I am still very satisfied with the restaurant. The room is large but quite old, but the price is not expensive, and it is not required to be so much. We have more than forty room numbers, which are far away, and far from the beach. I don’t know if our room is cheaper. Relatively far. The bed in the room is still relatively large, 1.5 meters in two, and the extra bed is about 1.2. There is a balcony with a shelf to dry clothes. The balcony is a beach, but the swimming here is not good, so in addition to drying clothes. Did not go out, a little afraid, but also afraid that small animals come in from the glass door, you must bring your own slippers, toothbrush, toothpaste, beach towels can be used. Going to the seaside swing there are a lot of corals and fish, but remember to wear jellyfish shoes. When someone just went to the water, they were blown by corals. They need to be sent to the hospital in Mafu Island, and then they went to the hospital by chartered boat. The boat fee is 50 dollars. . There is a hotel staff to take with you. So jellyfish shoes are very important. A lot of fish out on the swing position is black, but the nose is thorny, the child goes to catch it, then go to school and go to the lobby to dress up. The swing position is a lagoon, where there are a lot of fish, and then the fish in the swing is smaller. If you dive, you will have a lot of fish, white and transparent. We have been playing with the fish for a long time on the swing. I am very happy, and there are small sharks here and there are Hawaiian fish, which is a long-named Hawaiian local fish, but it is also here. But close to the lagoon, we had a black oversized sea otter at the foot of the snorkeling, scared us to death, and then dared not go out. On other beaches, there are also sea snakes and squids that are white with dots. At night, there are bats, small sharks, sea urchins, and other fish that cannot be named at the end of the pier. At night, we will finish the meal and enjoy the fish at the pier. Dinner is starting at 7:30, a bit late. In general, this hotel is still very worthwhile, after all, the price is not expensive, then the sea is very short, to the child's knee and thigh position, many corals and many fish, the beach is also good, many beach chairs, we are sleeping, other time is Playing at the beach, very happy, children are more happy. If you did not participate in the offshore project, you would go to the resident island to participate again. It’s enough to stay in Biar, just staying at the beach for two nights. After all, we have been playing for two days. The first day is dinner, and the last day includes breakfast lunch. Child ten years old

The first time I went to the Maldives, I chose this island, all inclusive, and the experience was very good There are Chinese-speaking staff on the island, and the communication is very convenient. From the perspective of tourists on the island, about 20 [%] are Chinese. There are 4 restaurants on the island, a main restaurant, a Beijing restaurant, a Ceylon restaurant and an underwater restaurant. The experience of the subsea restaurant is good, about 6 meters below the sea level, and the food is delicious. In addition, a series of activities will be arranged on the island, including sea fishing and dolphin watching (if you do not want to snorkel) We live in a water house, and the room is in good condition. I think it may be better than the sand house experience. In short, very good experience ~

Guraidhoo is the most popular destination in Maldives for surfing, diving and snorkelling. The guest house is an amazing place run by amazing people. It is situated right across the coast, which gives you the breath taking view of the beautiful white sandy beach and the fascinating turquoise lagoon. There is Desert Island nearby where you can hang around or swim with bikini. The staff was very friendly and caring. They also arrange a transfer from/to the airport (a representative was waiting at Arrival Hall of Airport with my name). They offer Maldivian food prepared from fresh local products including fish (really delicious). You can also ask for different type of trips like Snorkelling, Sunset and Day Fishing Trips, Visiting to Sand Bank or Visiting to nearby Islands and resorts. They will provide you will all necessary equipment. If you want to have a romantic dinner on the beach, you will have it! Perfect place of value for unforgettable holidays in wonderful atmosphere. You will fill there like home. Totally recommend it!

The sand house booked has a spacious room. The two-year-old and one-bedroom are not crowded at all. If the child does not have an extra bed, there will be no separate charge. There are many types of breakfast. If you eat late, you will not be hungry until the evening. In the afternoon, you can order drinks and pizza by the pool. We took a speedboat from Maafushi. We took the shuttle bus together. The total cost of two large and one small was 120 US dollars, which is much cheaper than taking the Beas Island speedboat.

The book is a garden sea view room, but there is no room in his house, and a room without a window is arranged. I insisted on the garden sea view room. Finally, the store negotiated with another house to arrange the garden sea view room. The store apologized for giving a dinner. Overall feels good.

This is a small guesthouse, it gave us (the budget travelers) a chance to have vacation in Maldives with such a low price. Room rate is budget, value for money. The staff are friendly and helpful. The facilities and cleanliness of the hostel could be improved. Guraidhoo island is quiet and less tourists. This is the place to experience local lifestyle. Speedboat is convenient to go to the nearby maafushi island, which is full of tourists and the beach side there is nice. We know that we couldn’t de***d more as the price we paid is relatively lower compared to other luxurious hotel.

My husband and I have just returned from staying in the Dhoni loft villa and had possibly the best holiday/honeymoon ever. We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and promised ourselves that we would visit to the Maldives on our 10th wedding anniversary. I have looked for around two years for the perfect accommodation and chose this resort due to a previous recommendation from a friend. The resort has recently undergone a complete renovation and the accommodation is simply breathtaking with floor to ceiling views of the Indian Ocean. The villas are situated so that you can simply get to the sea directly from your own private steps. We snorkelled every day and saw hundreds of beautiful fish, plenty of baby sharks, turtles and a manta Ray which was as wide as my husband is tall. A trip to cast cast customer service that really makes this holiday stand out from any others that we have gone on. The staff address you by your first names and are friendly but also discreet. Every morning and meal time we were greeted by our first names and the staff are genuinely interested in talking to us and getting to know us. They also cater for individual requirements so for example although I love eating fish I do not like to see fish heads on my plate and they remembered this every time I ordered something preparing it for me. It is the best value to go on a half-board basis because the food is very expensive if you pay for it individually. The breakfast is complimentary for all guests and included a fantastic hot meal menu as well as the usual continental which were fresh pastries, breads, fruit, cereals, yoghurts, granola and fresh bottles of juice etc. The food was simply outstanding and the chefs are a credit. Meals changed every day and included traditional Moldavian dishes. There are different types of villas in the accommodation and we went for one which was mid range. This is a Dhoni loft villa which has a separate bedroom upstairs. It also has an outdoor shower as well as a bar. The bar includes drinks which are free within the room such as Fanta, sprite, tonic. You’re also provided with milk, coffee, tea, fresh fruit changed daily. We had oranges, apples, grapes as well as three snack pots which were changed daily. These included things like almonds, Wasabi beans, cashews. We also had six bottles of water which were constantly being replenished. The staff also come in later on in the day to do a turndown service. If you read the reviews of this resort most people are returning guests and it is no surprise. We will certainly be looking to return once we have saved up again. The resort is small however if you’re looking for a romantic getaway this place is ideal. The only thing we would change at this resort is the sand bank which we were only able to go onto once because boats from other resorts stop at the far end letting people off. This meant that quite often there are 20 or 30 people on the sand bank which really you just want it to yourse

I had the utmost pleasure recently to visit the Maldives for the first time. I am a Hilton Diamond member and have had my eye on the Waldorf Astoria Maldives since they opened in 2019. Hilton points are easy to earn and this property is the highest value you can get for those points at a standard room rate of 120k points per night. You have to be patient to find the availability but it does happen. And a “standard” room here is nothing short of luxurious. My experience at the Waldorf did not disappoint in any way and absolutely exceeded my expectations. I want to give special mention to my concierge during my stay, Camille. There was nothing I asked of her that couldn’t be accomplished, and always with the kindest of smiles. She is genuine and warm. Honestly, all of the staff members I encountered were just as happy to help me out, greeting me by name most of the time. I travel solo a lot, and I do enjoy the solitude of it. But there are also instances when I am eager to have a chat, in which case, it was always a joy to visit Peacock Alley for a Happy Hour or post-dinner cocktail. My two favorite bartenders, Zedd and Sudheep, couldn’t have been nicer. The cocktails were well crafted and it was fun to just give them a flavor profile, to see what delicious concept they could design for me. Vanilla Margaritas are my new favorite. I also appreciated visiting with Sofie from Guest Relations on a couple of occasions. It started out as a professional business gesture, making sure all my needs were being met, asking for feedback, which is nice to get asked about. Then the conversation turned to Waldorf properties around the world, and favorite destinations to visit next time. That is my favorite type of conversation to have and I learned a lot of good ideas from Sofie about that. It wasn’t a rushed thing, I felt it was genuine and sincere. I appreciate that so much. One more thing I would like to share with trip advisor readers, if you are interested in snorkeling. Maybe you have read some past reviews or opinions about the house reef at the Waldorf being perhaps not quite up to par. Let me tell you, that is not the case anymore. I was a bit skeptical after having read similar comments. I have snorkeled at the Great Barrier Reef, which I didn’t think could be topped. I was wrong. I’ve never seen so many different varieties of fish before. I had asked several staff members where they thought the best spots to snorkel the house reef from would be, and was told to go near the dive shop and in front of Yasmeen (a Lebanese restaurant on the resort). The water was so clear, I could see for a very long distance. I was thrilled with the experience, and if fish are what you want to see, this is an amazing place to see them. I just wanted to say again to all the wonderful and warm staff members at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives, you made my visit there an experience I will never forget. Thank you for making me feel so very w

Booked the hotel's pick-up, you can go to the hotel's desk as soon as you fly, and someone will take you to the yacht, about 40 minutes to the hotel Breakfast must be set. It is rich and has a variety of flavors. There is juice for breakfast every day. There is no free drink for lunch and dinner. There is a restaurant that supports food delivery services. You can call to deliver food to your door, then have breakfast on the balcony at dusk and watch the sunset. If you want to go out to play, you must take a good look at the daily activities and ask carefully, because some activities are one day, some are two days, it is worth going out to sea and diving.

I have never felt as welcome as in hotel Masaaree. The staff of the hotel made our stay as comfortable as possible from the moment we arrived to the last minute of our vacation. Sometimes it seemed like they were reading my mind 🙂 All of the hotel is well taken care of, and the rooms are very comfortable and always clean. We had our breakfasts and delicious dinners served on the lovely terrace in front of the hotel. All the excursions organized by the boys from the hotel were super fun and exciting, and the experience was all that it promised before. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone with a wish to experience pristine kindness and great value for money. Thank you guys for great memories.

South Male Atoll
The hotel is located on the side of the resident island of Ma Fuji near the police station and the prison. It is five minutes walk from Bikini Beach and the more lively places, but the island is not big. From the airport to Ma Fuji, there are speedboats every hour or two every day, 25 dollars unilaterally. I didn't know at the beginning. I went to the airport to contact the boss at the airport information center. The person who was contacted by the boss yelled at the speedboat outside. After half an hour's speedboat arrived at Ma Fuji Island, the little brother used the three-wheeled cart to pick up the baggage back to the hotel. The hotel owner asked me for $25 at the beginning. I thought it was a ferry. As a result, the ferry was only one shift per day, and the journey was one and a half hours. So explain it here clearly and avoid misunderstandings. The folk boss is enthusiastic. I went out to sea and she also provided me with a mobile phone case. The breakfast buddy sat, very good. The house is fully equipped with refrigerator, air conditioning and hot water. There is a supermarket on the inhabitants' island, which is convenient for living. There is a buffet at the end of the island. Generally, the $15 tax is enough.

This is our 1st tup to Maldives. After an “extensive” research on Tripadvisor etc, we decided to stay with Kinan, and were not disappointed. We landed at night in Male, so we had to stay overnight in Hulhumale (or you can choose Male) before the speedboat transfer the next morning. It is best that to get a local SIM card for communication with Kinan via FB messenger or Ramzee, the manager via WhatsApp. I data roamed for a short while thinking that data roaming rate would RM38 per day, it was actually RM38 per MB. A warning text came stating I had spent RM 300 for a 10 minute data usage! We got onto a speed boat transfer arranged by Kinan, and arrived about 1.5 hours later. The water in front of the resort is so blue, it does not get any bluer than here anywhere else in the world. Faesal the manager and the team goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The room is clean, comfortable and everything in it is functioning. Lunch and dinner is very delicious. Breakfast can be a bit monotonous, with roshi (Maldivian flatbread), Mas Huni (tuna coconut salad) and some Western fare. My advice is to just go with full board, as getting ala-carte food from the other 2 or 3 local restaurants can take a long time. Fulidhoo is such a small island, and you can finish walking around it in 15 minutes. So to kill time, please do some activities. We went for a snorkelling trip to a sunken fishing ship and visit at the sandbank. If you want to see marine life (and maybe corals) you can miss this one. The next trip was a sunset/night fishing. The small catch that we had was cooked for lunch the next day. We went scuba diving with Fulidhoo Dive located next door. They are a professional outfit, and are highly recommended. As a not so experienced diver, I thought the corals were not so great. Then we found out the bleaching in 2016/17, which explains our finding. On the final day we went snorkelling again at Shark Point. This is near a private resort where the gentle nurse sharks gather around you as you swim in the water. As Kinan is a small 9 room establishment, the other guest can make or break your stay. Among others, there were an Italian family and couple, and American scuba diver couple during our stay. Everybody was cordial and respected each other. Then in the last 2 nights came an Indian model shooting crew. They were loud, stayed up late at night, have little respect for our private spaces, smoked in front of the children during meals and was wearing shoes inside (shoes are taken off as we enter). My American fellow guest had a go telling them off. I asked Ramzee to handle them. I think he did a good job, as they “behaved” themselves after. Thank you Kinan for a great stay!

First of all, I want to say that this is my fifth trip to Madai, and I went to the brand of Banyan Tree. Let me first say the advantages: service and good! I prepared a birthday cake for the child, and re-arranged the room for the child by turning the night bed. Based on the good service, I will give a daily tip of 2-4 US dollars. The diving instructor is good. Key Tucao: Meals and poor. At the beginning, the all-inclusive price for three nights and four days from December 19 to 22 (from the first day of dinner to the last day of lunch, Ctrip settled more than 32,000) was very small, Breakfast hotel reception list writes drinks and drinks (who got up early to drink and eat breakfast), saw lunch and dinner twice like sea prawns, no drinks, no drinks, only served white water, this one is still set meal is not buffet, Personally I feel that the traffic is not enough to open the buffet. Sometimes lunch and dinner are given a set menu, dessert main course salad, just talk about lunch on the last day, two chicken skewers and one fried rice, one does not know what the cold The cold dishes are cucumber and tomatoes with a little olive oil. This is a non-buffet package. I do n’t think this package adds up to more than $ 50, but for this brand of hotel, even buffet is extremely shabby! Since the child wanted to play for one more night, I renewed the room for another night, changed the air ticket, and added the diving test certificate. In addition, I spent a total of $ 3,000 in the room (including the island fee for an adult is $ 185, and the room rate is 1300 US dollar one night renewal) This price has been very good to go to other islands! Not recommended to come to this island! Facilities are only one restaurant, one bar, no public pool! In short this hotel will not come again!

Kandolhu is the fourth island we have visited in the Maldives over the last few years. I did a lot of research to find a new island - our criteria is good snorkelling, a small island and preferably few or no children. The reviews all sounded so good too so we decided to book for 2 weeks in March. We were met at the airport and the transfer to the sea plane was very smooth. A lovely welcome when we arrived by the friendly and helpful team, including Managers Mark & Laura. We booked an overwater villa as we like to sit out and watch the sea. We were really happy with our room. It was spacious, west facing for drinks at sunset, and was clean and bright. One thing we are particularly fussy about is the comfort of the bed and here the beds were fabulous, the pillows perfect and great bed linen. The bathroom was very big too and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the mini bar which was kept well stocked, though it was also nice to have a drink at the bar. We tried all the restaurants apart from the Japanese one. We loved Justin's Mexican lunches and also enjoyed the Sea Grill and Olive. The food was always fresh and delicious. The resort is made extra special by the staff who are so helpful and friendly. We didn't really need anything but I know if we needed something or had a problem it would have been dealt with. A major highlight for us was the snorkelling. The range of fish and sea life was amazing. It was easy to access the reef from the jetty (or the room) and we spent several hours a day in the water. We only did one boat trip as it was a bit windy on a couple of days. But the trip we did with Morgan on a lovely calm day to a couple of nearby reefs was excellent and it was good to see a reef with some recovery in the coral. We saw several turtles every day, many eagle rays and shoals of beautiful fish. I've never seen so many turtles in the Maldives. We had to cut short the trip to get back to the UK but that was all handled smoothly by Kandolhu and by Kuoni. Overall we had an amazing holiday. We will definitely be back next year. Our thanks to all the team and our best wishes to them and their families as they take time out due to Covid19. Anne & Nigel

My girlfriend and I stayed here for my 33rd birthday and it was literally paradise! It’s everything you expect from a 5 star resort. The property is sooo amazingly beautiful, I’m still truly amazed and speechless! The annoying elephant in the room...Covid-19! 🙄 They have full covid safety measures and protocols in place. All the staff wore mask, tables socially distanced, they have hand sanitizers and mask set out for guest when you enter the restaurant, and most importantly, they offer on site covid testing for return flights. Customer service was A1! The staff was very nice and helpful! I don’t believe we had any rude encounters or anyone not willing to help with anything. Two of the staff that was absolutely amazing and worth mentioning by name are Emannahmedh; he was the front desk/guest services person who assisted us from checkin to checkout. He offered us a tour of the property before taking us to our room. He was amazing throughout our entire stay. Even when he wasn’t physically at work, he was providing great customer service whenever we reached out to ask a question (we exchanged WhatsApp info), he would have someone who was present get it done without us even asking him to do so. The other person is Aiman, one of my the bar waiters. He was great and our go to guy for all our drink orders when we were by the main pool. They have a few different restaurants. The main restaurant (Kula) is buffet style and serves all 3 meals. They usually have a variety of options ranging from pastas to mashed potatoes and rice, with different meat options, and some Indian style dishes. The Guduguda serves local Maldivian dishes (mostly seafood), and the BBQ shack basically speaks for itself; they have a few options including prawns, chicken, steak, and lobster that’s all cooked on a huge grill with side options like corn on the cob, baked potatoes, local dishes and some amazing sauce options as well. The food was well cooked and seasoned to perfection, the sauces were the icing on the cake! They also have room service, a number of private dinner options, and picnics. I felt like there was a decent variety of options. We stayed in the ocean overwater villa and it was beautiful and worth every penny! We had a king bed that was very comfortable! You really don’t even need to leave your room to enjoy this paradise because you have your own pool right outside and direct access to the ocean. They provide you with complimentary snorkeling gear in the room so you can explore at anytime. The view was also breathtaking! The view of the pool and ocean is directly in front of the bed. We slept with the curtains open everyday to be awoken by the sunlight. I loved everything about the room but favorite thing about the room might’ve been the two part glass floors in the bathroom where you get to watch all the colorful beauties swim by. We saw a variety...fish, baby sharks 🦈, and stingrays. The only hiccup we had was the day we were supposed to leave

The accommodation is clean and comfortable and superbly located a short walk from bikini beach. Our host Yameen and his team took excellent care of us and made us feel most welcome. You can snorkel right off the beach which was great (crystal waters , white sand, and great view to other islands) though the current can be strong) but the highlights were the trips that Yameen organised one day snorkeling and to nearby picnic island , complete with fish feeding in the lagoon, and another day snorkeling at many different points around the nearby islands finding loads of reef sharks, (black and white tip) manta rays and even a turtle. Two guides snorkeled with us and pointed out many different fish and corals - also made me feel more comfortable with the sharks! Both accommodation and day trips were very reasonably priced . The Island itself had a few souvenir shops and a small grocery store as well as two main restaurants , a dive centre and local amenities such as post office, atm, police station , school and hospital. We had a fantastic time here and can’t wait to go back. Perfect for our family of five with 2 adults and 3 kids aged 14; 11; 10 and all good swimmers who were happy to stay all day in the ocean. Exceptionally good value and Super location.

I cannot recommend enough Paguro beach inn, it made our holiday absolutely fantastic! If you are looking for a luxury resort type of place do not goto Ukulhas :-) there is none of that on the island: it is a local inhabited island and so much better for that! But even talking to other people we met I think Paguro must be the best structure available!  The structure It is literally 1min from the beach (not on the beach itself, as there are no beach structures in Ukulhas but as close as it gets). The common areas are simple and well tended, not a lot of outdoor space but they do have a couple of tables outside and we loved sitting there.They have a selection snorkelling equipment available free of charge which is amazing and not at all common in other hotels. The place is spotless clean and absolutely safe (in 10 days we managed to: leave the door of the room open, the safe door open and we forgot the wallet in the common area - useless to say absolutely nothing was touched!) Food Loved it. if you are considering Ukulhas you might have already understood that there are only 3/4 restaurants as most of the meals are served in the hotels. We took bed and breakfast formula but ended up having at least one other meal at the hotel because the food is so much better than anything else. They have both buffet (with local/Indian and international options). Breakfast was great: toast bread, butter, jam, cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs (you can order them as you wish as they are made express) and every day a different selection of local and international options (I tried pancakes, banana bread, crepes, and much more and all was delicious), juices and coffee. Both lunch and dinner are either buffet or a la carte: they always have good options for kids (pasta, fish and chips and fried chicken, so good we had it 4 times)! The Indian food was amazing (best Tikka Masala ever) and after trying several other options I can totally say they cook the best fish on the island (everywhere else they tend to overcook the fish till it's super tough but not at Paguro). If you want any special seafood like the mix grilled platter or the lobster just let them know a few hours in advance and they will prepare it for you. They are amazingly accommodating! The freshly squeezed fruit juices are a real treat!  Rooms They are spotless clean absolutely among the cleanest I have ever seen. Beds are very comfortable with soft sheets and comfy pillows. We had a triple and we were totally ok. Our room had no view but we had a small balcony that we never used because it was too hot! And trust me you don't need a view just step out and go to the beach, best view you can get (btw aside from a monstrous new tall building that everyone should boycott there are no accommodations with a real view because the beach is lined by tall palm trees and most of the buildings are 1 or 2 floors max (Paguro is 2 floors for eg). Free in room nespresso coffee and fresh filtered water in the fr

We already visited Kiha beach in 2017, and I have a lot of facts to compare. That time we had wonderful trip. What about now? Some days before our trip there was a storm, and our hotel lost almost all territory of its beach! When we booked our stay we talked a lot with managers about different things, but they never mentioned that they’ve lost their entire beach. We stayed in Kiha “Beach” for 18 days with two little kids having no beach, it was very disappointing. Beach: In 4.02.20 we came and saw that wonderful beach of this hotel has gone, and everything looked like after disaster. The first time being here we loved that beach for almost 15 meters of beautiful sand, and now there is no beach near hotel. Trees and palms fell down, all the beach is full of bags with sand, and roots of trees. It looks badly. When we asked manager to remove roots of palms, he said that it is difficult to do. And now that small parts of the beach that left looks messy. Beach is not cleaned enough! The part on the top has dirty gray sand, and in the bottom it is always dirty (ocean brings garbage and only sometime someone from the hotel cleans it+ bags with garbage+ roots) Second beach, that they recommend to go, is on the west part of the island, and you need to go there for 10 min. They even have transport to go there, but you need to return by yourself. That beach is even more dirty an unorganized, and the water is not so clean, as near the hotel. Service: They try to be polite but i’s not enough for quality service. Someday they asked us to take dishes after coffee and juice from the beach to the restaurant. That was really surprising, that I must grab my children, all the staff for the beach and also cups and glasses. Not good! If you want some drinks to the beach you may wait from 20 to 40 min! (Coffee and 2 orange juices) Also we asked for coconuts for all time of our journey, but the waiter said, that sometimes they have coconuts, sometimes they don’t. Every day the answer was like this. We haven’t seen the coconuts in the hotel at all! The service looks very lazy. But I am sure, that the main reason for this is a manager! He shrugged, blaming it all on the natural disaster like he can do nothing about it. Beach is not clean! Sand on the high part of it has dirty gray color. Chaise lounges are very dirty, beach matrasses and towels are not good too. Jungles near the hotel are very dirty and full of garbage. When the hotel worker “cleans” the beach, all the leaves go to the side of the jungles. Its not normal! They do not care about their island. Rooms cleaning is good. But they close the door while cleaning which is not right thing to do by the international hotels rules. Restaurant cleaning is okay. Food: Food is very good! Not a big choice, but enough! And I enjoyed it very much. But also I must notice, that Kiha beach made beautiful dinner on 14.02, and ethnic music evenings twice. I think, that it is a good plus for this

We chose this hotel, the price/performance ratio is really good. After the trip, some people arranged for pick-up and drop-off, arranged for the inland plane and speedboat to arrive at the resort. After arriving at the fake village, the service staff sent a welcome to each person. We originally booked 5 I lived in a luxury villa in the evening. Fortunately, I can live in the water villa on the 4th night. The two villas have their own characteristics. The luxury villas can see the sunset, the water villas can see the sunrise, and everything is well arranged. The beach has white sand and the water is very blue. We cleaned the room twice a day. We booked a full breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was also served in the same main restaurant. The waiter was very polite. Every night there are different dishes and facilities. Enough, in addition to drinking water, only one bottle is supplied per room per day. The water in the hose is only filtered once and the salt is not completely filtered. Therefore, it is not suitable for drinking. To drink extra water, you should buy it at the restaurant or bar.

"You make a baby in the Maldives – you don’t take one!" That’s what all our friends told us when we shared that we were bringing our 5 month old son with us on a delayed honeymoon. We too had our concerns, however we didn’t want to leave him at home and also couldn’t resist the allure of the islands any longer. The Maldives is home to many luxury resorts, and we are sure we would have been just fine at any one of them. However, when you want to upgrade a vacation from “enjoyable” to “completely out of this world”, you don’t consider anything other than Four Seasons. Sure enough, any hesitations or concerns we had after the red eye flight from London to Male were completely washed away after seeing that iconic Four Seasons sign, held by a team of friendly, smiling faces. We were led to a cool lounge and offered towels, coffee, water and a comfortable place to sit. Our details were taken swiftly and efficiently and it wasn’t long before we were whisked onto a seaplane, en route to Landaa Giraavaru. We were greeted by Stefano, the Guest Experience Manager on the island. He escorted us to the tropical yet elegant lobby and over coconut juice, confirmed all of the details of our stay. Our son was given a soft toy which he immediately began sucking on. We did a quick tour of the island in Stefano’s golf cart, and were astounded by the beauty and tranquility of it all. The restaurants were intimate and gorgeous, the pools were calm and glistening and there was staff everywhere cleaning and gardening and ensuring everything was picture perfect at all times. Everyone seemed relaxed and content working away, pausing only to wave at us. After passing the orchid garden, yoga retreat, ocean side spa and freshwater pool, we arrived at our Sunrise Water Villa. The villa was exactly as amazing as you would expect – except with that Four Seasons touch. There was a personalized menu for our son, along with a soft and plush crib, full diaper caddy, stuffed animal gift and bath tub. And for us, anything we could have asked for – was already there. Flash light, bug spray, sun screen, yoga mats, beach bags, aloe vera… the list goes on. We didn’t take long to get totally immersed in the island and everything Four Seasons had to offer. Boots camps, water yoga, snorkeling, diving, paddle boarding, shark feeding, turtle safaris, sunset cruises … every day we enjoyed breakfast and read through the list of the day’s activities. We were constantly out and exploring – and making lots of friends! The staff learned our names and greeted our son by name everywhere we went. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and jumped at the chance to help us. We did want to enjoy some time just the two of us and as a new mother, I was quite nervous about leaving my baby with a stranger. The resort sent us the most wonderful, caring, confident woman named Putu, who completely gave us the honeymoon we were hoping for. She immediately bond

Everything else is fine. There are too few Chinese restaurants in the restaurant. If you have a Chinese stomach, it may be more painful. The service staff didn't feel good. No toothbrush, call the hotel to ask. I can speak English but not Chinese. Maybe just happened to encounter a wonderful front desk. Actually I know which one, but I don't want to embarrass the little girl, but it is really disgusting. The people at the SPA kept selling-the boring kind. We all went to the SPA, watching the aunt in the SPA still retreated. Everything else is fine. The scenery is beautiful, the sand is up and some places are very lame. Cost-effective. This time it was sent by a friend. I don't plan to go again next time.

Stayed at Isle Royal a couple months after they opened and was very happy with my stay. Staff and service is very good. They go out of there way to help. Room was great, spotless and comfortable. Bed was very comfortable come to think of it. Food was very good...albeit with limited choices...but it is a tropical island just recently opening up for tourism. Would definitely stay here again.

Ayada Hotel's rooms are relatively large, the surrounding environment is first-class, the sea is beautiful, specially to take wedding photos, by the way honeymoon. After living in a three-day sand house and a three-day sunset water house, the sand house is already very good. The water house is not to be said. It is very pleasant to go swimming and diving at any time. The butler service is great and intimate. There are several restaurants that taste good, we order our own food. There is nothing wrong with it here. Coke Sprite is the cheapest drink. We don't have any food to drink, but we have to pay 5 US dollars. Next time I come to the sack, I decided to check in a box of Sprite. Here, I will send two bottles of water every day, but enough to drink, but There is a hint of the ocean, a little bit salty, there are all kinds of drinks in the snow, or that sentence, it is expensive. Anyway, I have to come once in my life. It is worth checking in. I recommend it.

I am setting the standard room, very close to the sea. The rooms are generally outdated, and the 3 star facilities are definitely not formaldehyde! I have never put clothes in the cabinet before, and this time I have been safe for 7 days! Let me talk about my experience. After booking the hotel, I must let Ctrip contact the pick-up problem immediately. Because the Maldives and we have 3 hours difference, the work efficiency is low, and it takes 3 days for a pick-up problem to be fixed. And from the airport to the bandos can only get bandos themselves, there is no second choice. It’s about 15 minutes from Male’ airport to bandos, still very close. The room provided 2 bottles of water a day, 2 people were enough. At that time, I was afraid that the water was not enough to drink. I brought 2 bottles of water from Beijing, which was useless! It is best to have 2 meals for dining, and 3 meals are best! Because eating on the island is expensive, my child and I ate a pizza and a pasta plus a 22% tax and service fee for a total of $46. No cash on the island, all the accounts are posted to the room. When you leave the store, you can check out cash and can swipe your card. In Malé also use the dollar. Before leaving the island, you must set the time for departure from the hotel in advance. Life jackets can be rented free of charge on the island at the diving centre. The Maldives wave in July was relatively large, with more rain and more transparency than the peak season. The coral is basically dead, but the island staff said that the coral is very fragile and is currently in a dormant period, and it will take 100 years to wake up. The city centre of Male is small, things are not cheap, motorcycles are basic means of transportation, making you feel dangerous. You can go and feel the local environment.

Our family of 4 made their last stop at Conrad and stayed for 2 nights. Breakfast is rich, Chinese, Japanese, and European are more selective, compared to Paradise Island and Bandos Island. There is also a Chinese restaurant, the service is super good and the price is cheap. Relatively few people here, a little quieter, suitable for vacation. The island's water is extremely blue, with several colors of blue. The only disadvantage is that Shuifei is a bit expensive, 590USD per adult. Undersea restaurant 220USD / person.

Our stay at Veli beach seemed to be good as we arrived at the airport. The personal met us took us to speedboat so this was perfect.Also communication throught e-mail and massenger before arrival was perfect. Problems began aafter arrival.Room was very small and the worse thing was that the window was to the hotel corridor.It was very uncomfortable for us. We might choose either open window to get fresh air but than everybody who passed looked straight to our bed , or close window and courtains but then the room immediately became dull. Second thing which we don ´t like at all was program all inclusive.Actually it was lunch and dinner(because breakfast was included the bed) with one small drink per person and they brought the meal from another side of island so it was cold, icecream which I ordered once was spilled and with every order we had some mistake(We told to personal that my boyfriend is vegetarian , no eating meat and eggs and first they brought soup with egg, second nasi goreng with sausages.....)So after one day we discussed with manager to cancel it.It was not problem but possibilites to eat at the restaurants are not so good at Ukulhas(the best was Thai restaurant and Retro)... Also the sea was not as we accepted.The coral reef is almost dead around the island .We saw some fish , one turttle and two small sharks but for me if I compare it to Red sea at Egypt it was nothiing... So as for us NEVER AGAIN.

Traveling all the time, there are six good ones will not choose others. The natural style of Liushan begins with all-wood construction and decoration, and goes deep into culture, concept, and knowledge. Every employee is practicing this natural and environmental concept, deeply rooted in their hearts, and will The value extends to their guest fans, and our family is one of these followers! I personally like that there are almost no traces of reinforced concrete bricks on the island. There is not much feeling of uneasiness in contact with plastics. Everyone and every corner is popularizing the concept of environmental protection, including my 7-year-old son, who benefited a lot. After the communication of the Biologist on the island, I can tell you how plastic is not environmentally friendly, how marine life is ruined by plastics; and the Indian astronomical professor together with the stargazing view told me about the sun surface exposure and what the professor recommended him to see astronomy books; Eating delicious burgers at Star Beach Cinema, watching Blue planet and the devil's head so that I can easily eat our romantic dinner; My GEM Edie is a Chinese-Malaysian girl, very intimate, arrange each of our activities, bring my own private swimming bubble ducks, take the initiative to help me book a popular restaurant in advance, arrange the best transfer plan, remind all the islands The activities, every time every moment to send a warm smile, let me have no worries! Sophia from China didn't arrive at the island of Ram, I started the journey for us, communicated and shuttled, and made me feel at ease!' This is the six good, respect for nature, love the environment, low-key luxury, noble in the bones, this is why we always choose six good!

The hotel is located on the resident island of the North Male Atoll area, 40 minutes by speed from the airport. The hotel has an airport shuttle service. It needs to be booked in advance, with a speed of 30 US dollars per person and 2 boats per day. This hotel is the largest hotel on the island. For lunch and dinner, you can have a buffet at the hotel for $15 per person. There are not many foods and you can only eat enough. Equivalent to domestic Samsung facilities, rooms are relatively new, fairly clean. The hotel has five floors and the fifth floor is an infinity pool, great! This island is not big, you can walk around for half an hour, and it looks good to see the local residents' houses and life! The hotel is located on the east side, the scenery is very good, the water is very clear, and many leisure facilities such as swing chairs are very holiday feeling. The water is suitable for swimming and diving, you can play with water-skiing, etc. You can also choose to go fishing and island hopping. Compared to other expensive private islands, there are many original residents living on this island. The Chinese only see three or two families, most of them are European tourists. In short, this hotel is quite good value for money, it is worth recommending to friends. Here! We are two big and one young and 8 years old. The two beds are very big. The mattress is not as soft as other hotels. Sleeping at home feels very comfortable!

Form the moment we arrived on this incredible Island the service was 1st class, we were greeted from the seaplane and whisked to our accommodation with a welcome drink on arrival. I struggle to write this review..... Not because our experience wasn't completely outstanding but it is difficult to put into words how truly beyond every expectation this resort and personnel was during our stay. The beach villa was literally feet from the beach (123) generous in size, comfy beds, spacious bathrooms with an outdoor shower, nothing better than showering under the star light !! My partner treated me to a stay in the water villa as a surprise, a early birthday present and a complete surprise, completely organised by Paul and the incredible team of staff who put this together, I was whisked away after our dolphin cruise (a must do), suitcase packed for the night and arrived in tears of joy at Villa 817 - WOW JUST SPECTACULAR our Butler was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable, couldn't do enough for us, he made us feel like the Queen and King of the island, delivered us high tea on our day bed over looking the ocean and breakfast in bed, snorkeling around the water villa and under the pier was just like swimming in a fish tank and the hot tub on the villa deck watching the sunset was just a perfect way to end the day, just simply stunning. The food is another BIG WOW factor the dine around facility provides you with lots of options and choices, quality, portion sizes, presentation, combination of flavors 10/10, compliments to the catering team waiting teams, outstanding service, our private dinner on the beach was very romantic, right on the sea edge (a must do). And don't miss out on the massages, please make sure you experience the spa, it is really an experience for a total destress. If you are considering visiting DO IT !! you will, like us, have the best experience you could ever dream of. As for us we are already looking at when we can rebook, for sure we will be returning. We would like to thank the General Manager Chris who made sure everything was just right and the entire team at Adaaran Select Meedhupparu for an exceptional holiday. Anyone who asks for my recommendations in the Maldives I will make sure they come and stay with you !!

The old 5 star island, the equipment feels a bit old, the most unfortunate thing is that there is only one Chinese employee on the island or dive center, it is with my parents, they are not good English, they are both on the island Nothing to say. There are many Japanese people on the island, and Japan Go is very enthusiastic about talking with Japanese guests and making people look envious. The service is just like the general, just a lot of professional smirk. At the end of the day, when the island was arranged in a mess, the housekeeper did not know when we left, and the night before, someone called to confirm the time of the island. After sitting on the speed boat, I waited for another half of the day, and a European who had a child was angry. Just... it’s gone. In addition, the fish you can see is a bit monotonous and a bit boring. Finally, at the airport, the hotel staff directly handed us over to the black tour guide? ? ?

Excellent experience and it will be unforgetable memory in our life. The hotel first arranged for someone to pick us up at the airport, arranged for us to go to Mirihi Lounge, and then arranged for us to take a water plane. Then we arrive at Mirihi, which is completely heaven on earth. The water is very clear and clean. Every employee is very enthusiastic and professional and the service is in place. The Austrian diving teacher is also very professional. After teaching me once, I can float by myself. After snorkeling for 4 days, the underwater world here is really wonderful. Every day I take a camera to shoot big underwater movies, sharks, tuna, and any fish in the sea can swim with me, don’t worry about them hurting me. The catering team led by the German chef Alex changed our styles to make buffets for us every day, Italian night, sea food night, and Maldives cuisine. The ingredients are fresh and the taste is just what we like. The hotel also arranged activities such as chasing dolphins at sea, snorkeling at sea, introduction to the world under the sea, etc. My partner and I are 100% satisfied with this experience!
