Above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.
Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.
My Arrival Experience: Warm welcome from Elena and the team.
What I Loved: The design and, of course, the island itself.
What About the Food: Pleasantly surprised. I found the food to be good and better than at many Maldivian resorts. A talented chef from Nepal and pastry chef from India do a great job. They use expensive imported products instead of focusing on cost savings as seen on some of the other islands.
What About the Service: Although not among the best in the Maldives, the service was a lot better than I expected for the price of this resort. Some could need more training but overall satisfied with the service. The only issue was a missed breakfast order, but these this have happened many times before in some of the world’s best hotels.
What About My Room: A beautiful villa located right on the beach. The resort is quite new, and I loved the attractive design as well as the comfortable bed. The outdoor bathroom is lovely with a freestanding bathtub and two showers.
Number of Rooms: 105.
Type of Property: Resort.
Facilities: Pool, spa gym and an interesting Maldivian art gallery.
Complimentary Internet: Yes, but unfortunately very slow. Probably the only thing that didn’t meet my expectations at this resort.
My Overall Impression: Great+ experience.
