  • Stunning ocean colours, white sand beach, and absolute peace due to the small size of the island make this place a true paradise;
  • This hotel is a place for complete relaxation and enjoyment of nature;
  • The island is very small, quiet and other guests are not visible during the day;
  • The reef feels alive because of the huge number of fish and other sea creatures;
  • The food is very tasty and various;
  • If possible, it is better to take an inclusive package, because it takes care of all meals and beverages;
  • We recommend diving, cool instructors will do their best for you to feel easy, and there is a lot to watch;
  • Guests of the hotel note that the spa is excellent and recommend trying Balinese massage;
  • Staff is kind and helpful;
  • Great variety of cocktails but a small selection of wines
  • If possible, it is better to stay in a villa on the water, it is breathtaking! Very modern and made with organic materials
  • Water villa has direct access to the ocean
  • Water villa offers an incredible view;
  • Sunset water Villas are the best, do a half beach, half water villa stay if you can;
  • -Water villas look better, but are located too close to each other;
  • Take mosquito spray with you, especially if you are allergic to bites;
  • No need for any shoes and extra clothes. Take a few things with you and enjoy the surrounding;
  • Use sunscreen with SPF 50 and above, the sun burns in the Maldives even in shadow
