We traveled with our two kids (10 yrs, 6 yrs) and spent 4 days/5 nights over the Easter weekend. The water bungalow with private pool was a brilliant experience. We spent entire days either in the pool, walking into the lagoon to snorkel with parrot fish, sting rays etc or having room service.
The kids club was a God send as my wife and I managed an afternoon nap and a spa session (Anna was a wonderful masseuse) on two days. The kids had a great time with the entertainers at dinner and with the friendly staff at the Kids club.
F&B was a highlight. We are vegetarian and had no issues whatsoever. Manoj, Sajesh and their team were excellent. Special call-out to Ravi (service staff at Samsara) who did a great job serving us at breakfast in particular.
We had sunset views from our room as well as from the bar, and Maldives delivered every evening.
A final highlight was the evening fish feeding, which was fun, super exciting and brought Stingrays right to our feet. Wow!

The big negative was intra-resort transport. There were insufficient bicycles and the wait time for buggies was not funny. Even by "island time" standards, this was slow. We started calling for the buggy 15 mins before we were even ready, and would still wait another 10-15 mins. To their credit, they did say they would fix this issue soon.

Room Tip: Sunset water bungalows have great views. Avoid long weekends - the resort was full and buggy wait times were looooong!

Great hotel. Almost everything is perfect. They should better their food section. There is only one very good restaurant which is the French style. The rest are bellow average.

Also, as a tip, try to pay with MasterCard or American Express. I had a disappointing experience where the hotel terminal declined my Visa charge. Nevertheless, the amount was deducted from my account. I have not gotten the money back after one month.
The hotel has not been of any help. But it’s not really their fault.

The place is beautiful, is very expensive if you want to do all the activitis. For us there was a lot of childs, and many of them in the water villas. Any way, the expirience was great, the service is very good but a little slow.

This was our first trip to the Maldives and we where not disappointed.
The reception from the private yacht was a sign of the excellent service to come.
all the staff are fabulous to many to list and seem very happy working here which for us as a family was great to see.
food is superb. we had a gluten free and vegetarian in our party and there every need was taken care of.
excellent gym and personal trainer gave great workouts.
we hired a private yacht Windy for a personalised trip to snorkel with giant turtles and dolphins. the team were on point and we had a memory for life as a family.
spa treatments where sensational, so relaxing and quality of treatment as good as any I have received around the world.
the two guys who cleaned the room which was a 2 bedroomed beach villa made my day by climbing the trees to give us fresh coconuts ! the captain of the football team although they lost in the final !
we have to thank Saleem our personal butler he just took care of everything for us.
one down side you have to leave !
however family McCracken have booked to return April 2018 !
great job team happy staff make for happy holidays for your clients,
