We have been there from 15.01.17 to 25.01.17. The weather was fantastic. We had the most relaxing holidays ever. We had a beautiful water villa on the sunset side and it was gorgeous. The room and the bathroom were really big and everything was clean. Our villa was 318. The best villas are on the south of the island, on...

This is my second visit to the Maldives, and the setting was just as lovely. A real piece of paradise.

Obviously a bit of a trek from the uk with three flights but located on the largest atoll in the Maldives. Connections were all fine and the resort takes charge when you arrive in Male and ensures you make the final 45minute flight down.
