Thanks to all who work on the island. Are all very kind and friendly. The island is very nice and inspiring. Very quiet and perfect to rest. It was everything from the buffet to the excursions. I love this island :-) I would recommend it. See you soon Holiday Island.

Upon arrival we were greeted in reception where we were asked to wait and fill out forms. We were not given a hotel confirmation form by our tour operator so the hotel would not allow us to check in.

The only negative things are: we only have free internet in the bar area and there is no swimming pool. However in general the hotel was good and quite! Bedrooms are big and near to toilets there is a closed space where we can have shower and put clothes to dry. Bedrooms have a direct access to the beach and... More

It was our first trip to Maldives. A place in heaven! Perfect holiday for our whole family! We were a group of different age - 15, 42, 45 and 46. And there was fun for everyone - diving, snorkeling, beach bar, main bar, fitness and spa, many excursions organized by the hotel. I highly recomend the full day excursion to... More

This hotel is truly beautiful and relaxing. It is very informal, there is wifi (poor wifi) only in the main lobby/bar, and the staff is friendly. All the houses are facing the beach. It is truly a place where you come to disconnect from the world and relax. The food is OK, there is a buffet for breakfast and dinner... More

We were on Holiday Island Resort at the beginning of May for ten days. The weather was not so good how last year. From ten days was two raining, so we could not make our trip on ocean.

Decided to stay here overnight just so we can experience a "Maldives Resort". The beach is amazing, the water, aquamarine. We were set on one of the rooms facing the main beach, but the beach is quite far from the room. The villa looks a bit dated, but it's decent and clean. I love the snorkeling area at the back...
