Firstly the Seaplane was a great experience. On arrival all the staff made us very welcome. The whole experience was fabulous from start to finish. We stayed in a Deluxe over water villa and snorkelled everyday in the beautiful crystal clear waters with coral reefs surrounding our villa, saw some amazing aquatic life. There is very little or no current...

As everybody describes - this is heaven. Best place for honeymooners. 1st time I stayed in over water villa room and it was experience by itself. Gangehi is very small island and has only resort. Managed by Italian group and run by Asian crew. I stayed at big villa room and it was simply huge. Everything was made of wood....

We chose to stay at Gangehi following our stay in 2011 at Cocoa Island - we wanted somewhere which was very small, with an excellent house reef, not as high in cost as Cocoa but still a beautiful island and stylish comfortable villas. Whilst we are aware that the class of islands is very different so it would be unfair...

Stayed at Gangehi in June and had a lovely time. The staff were fabulous, they couldn't have been more willing to assist with queries and excursions and the service was great, rooms cleaned twice daily and always spotless. Whilst Ganghei is perhaps not one of the most luxurious of islands in the Maldives, it is a very relaxed, stripped of...

It's funny how 2 people staying in the same place at the same time can have such very different experiences! Ganghei is Idyllic and lived up to all expectations. I was there in June with my mother who is in her 70's and doesn't walk so well and my 1 year old daughter. We stayed in a beach villa which...

My wife and myself stayed at Gangehi in a overwater deluxe bungalow in June, although the room and deck were large they resembled a garden shed in need of a lick of paint, We got alot of splinters from the deck, we had our sunbeds brought onto the deck and sadly they have seen better days, we now know why...

Gangehi local and foreign non-European staff work strictly in accordance with Maldivian Tourism laws, which are far more restrictive than the EC tourism labor law ones: 8 hours max. a day, 8 days off very month, and 30 days paid leave a year. Our waiters never work for more than four hours at a time. In addition to their salaries...

This is our first time to maldives and I saw the reviews and chose Gangehi based on user reviews and feedback. I was shocked just a couple of days ahead of our trip when I received an email from the resort / sea plane transfer company (Maldivian Air Taxi) for a cost of about $400 per head. This was a...

AMAZING RESORT! First time to the Maldives and got lucky on picking this resort out of almost 200 to choose from. Being the only Americans on the island was refreshing, there was a balanced mix of British, Italian, German, Russia guests who were all very nice and fun to converse with. Never crowded and no large resort feel. This small...

We just came back from Gangehi. We were there during mid-May month 21st to 26th for our honeymoon. Initially we weren't sure that how the weather would be as I had read mixed reviews regarding the weather in Gangehi for the month of May-June. But once we were there, there was not even a single second that wasn't beautiful and...
