I have recently spent a holiday with my partner in paradise. We had not seen each other for 2 years, and we missed each other greatly. It was such a great experience for us to be and we were very satisfied with the services offered. Our butler Emma met us at the SeaPlane and took care of us very well throughout our stay. She was very kind, helpful, resourceful, fast, and professional. However, there are some issues to note: 1. Morning buffet items are quite limited. We stayed for 6 days, and we honestly got bored of the morning buffet. 2. Charging $6 for water in the restaurants while it's free by the villa is really a bad policy. We did not feel it is justifiable. 3. While a premium is to be expected, we found that pricing is a bit funny and illogical. Some foods taste better and look more expensive but cost much cheaper than others? If you read the menus carefully, you will understand what I mean. Other than that, our experience at the resort is very positive. Even though the weather was quite hot and humid, all employees greeted us warmly. They performed exceptional customer service in every aspects. We were so appreciative, and could not ask for more.

10/10 Exceptional

The entire property was spacious and facilities well-maintained. the villas are well-designed complete with top-notch amenities. Minor concern on the width of the pathways leading to the water villas where we stayed, its a bit narrow. It was hard for 2 golf carts to fit. railings of the pathways are less than 6-inches high. These could be a safety concern. Service was impeccable, most of the managers and staff were very warm and attentive, all of them remember each guest by the name. Special mention goes to our butler Guty, who attended to each and every request we had, excellent. Chef Driss and Didier made sure our dining experience was always special and they took time to chat with everyone. Restaurant manager Charito was always topnotch as well, including restaurant staff Ghie, Sanju, Kate and Angel. We tried all the restaurants, from Onu the Asian resto, to Vakku the grill resto, Amanny where we had breakfast daily, Lagoon Bar for Japanese - great quality, taste, presentation & service. Vakkaru made our first ever Maldives trip our best in a long time. Highly recommended and we will definitely come back.
