Amazing resort and service. The room was beautiful and everything we expected (Water bungalow). Spacious room and an amazing view of the ocean. Staff were really nice and friendly(they gave me shoes to play football with the locals and I loved it). On the negative, other than snorkelling and scuba diving, there is not much to do (this low energy...

The property is very beautifull. We stayed in a beach villa (n° 15), which is in a good location since you get the sun from the morning to the evening. The rooms are cleaned twice a day, the staff on the island extremely gentle and nice. The house reef is full of sea life (sharks, turtles, murenas, and lots of...

The island is small and very picturesque, and still, we had complete privacy. The diving team was exceptional, very professional and attentive. They provided a very enjoyable stay on every dive trip, taking care of us constantly and safety was top notch. They even went out of their way to make our dive a great experience, to the point that...

When I arrived in Male, the next flight Gangehi was scheduled only 4 hours later. However, the airline arranged with Gangehi resort to fly me to the neighbour island and Gangehi picked me up by boat which was super nice. Thanks again, guys. The resort offers 2 restaurants (one buffet all meals, one a la carte only dinner) with similar...

Just heaven, I'm already thinking of coming back. Amazing bungalow on water makes your stay so pleasant. We did visit in rainy season but still spectacular place to be. The only point to be mention is buffet which should be more attractive especially if U stay for more than few days. Should I recommend this place, oh 100 % yes,...

I couldn't fault this place. It really is paradise on earth. Great service, amazing beaches, fantastic water sports and snorkeling. It's a quiet island with only one restaurant/bar, but that suited me. Would recommend.

We stayed for a total of 11 nights at Gangehi Island Resort and we enjoyed every second of it! We booked the normal club room and made an upgrade on the island for a beach villa. The money was well spent and was a serious boost to our holiday-experience. Not that the club room was bad, but the beachvilla was...

We stayed here for 7 nights in a beach villa (no.6) and had the most amazing time. Coming from Paris, 2016 was really not the best year for us over here and ending it with a short break at Gangehi which was so relaxing and peaceful was wonderful. When booking, I was a hugely sceptical of the barrier in front...

Three of us (friends) stayed at Gangehi during a long business trip to India and Sri Lanka. The island and resort are fantastic. Not opulent (good thing), really friendly and responsive staff, pristine environs, many activities on offer, clean rooms, and solidly good food. A great respite for the soul. I strongly recommend for lovers and weary travelers alike!
