We have just returned from a thoroughly enjoyable 8 night stay at this hotel. After reading a couple of the previous reviews, I think it is important to note that this hotel sells itself as a 4 star hotel and really lives up to it. I think if you are looking for sleekness, glamour and perfection of a 5 star...

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday to this magical island with picture postcard views, amazing snorkelling, friendly and helpful staff.

We spend the first part of our honeymoon at Chaaya Dhonveli resort. This place is magical! From the moment you step off their chartered private boat you're greeted with a smile, cold towel and yummy cocktail. We stayed at the overwater suites and took the all inclusive option. I would highly recommend taking the all inclusive package- its slightly pricey...

My wife & I visited a different island 8 yrs ago so we had some ideas of what we expected. We booked a water bungalow and were allocated one facing the beach.
