    Great, relaxing and lovely staff. Great diving spots nearby. Reef around the island has been greatly affected by climate change . The resort places great effort to help corals recover and other marine conservation activities.

    Very quiet island but also a real lack of facilities and there are much better islands in Maldives to enjoy your hard earnt holiday . Only one restaurant which was well below average and boring with very limited options and a big left down for a Banyan Tree property No swimming pool a shock You can find much nicer for same money and we left early and went to another island which was a genuine 5 star for similar money

  • 2,0.Poor

    No swimming pool. too hot to be on the beach watching the kids as no parasols to protect you from the sun. no bar service on the beach. Only one restaurant after 10 days the food was boring and only 3 star quality and choice. Villas need a referb in bad condition. This is not a five star resort I would say 3 star at the best. Every one was in bed by 9.00pm which says it all absolutely nothing to do, no one to talk to no music in the bar nothing.

    The place was relaxing. Highly recommend if your are looking for a place to relax. The water was clear and the room facing the beach was amazing. Everything feel very private. All the staff was really nice. Also get to see the stingrays everyday the staff will feed them. One thing that can be improve is the gym. Overall I would definitely go back and recommend this place.
