After reading all reviews an after months of detailed reasearch, we decided for Filitheyo. Bingo! Barefoot for entire stay, walking on powderlike sand, swiming among thousands of colorfull fishes felt unreal. Full privacy due to almost invisible, but always there when needed incredibly professional stuff. Main restaurant food fully natural, with permanent offer of local dishes plus daily changed theme nights like italian, greek, mexican...Sunset bar restaurant has a kitchen that can compare to Michelin recomended restaurants. Lobster dinner on the beach was the ultimate pleasure. Millions of stars, shining over indian ocean waves, gently hitting the beach....food above expectation, wine list to satisfy all true wine lovers. Above all, the prices of everything were much lower than we've prepared ourselves when researching and planning our Maldives trip. We were in a superior bungalow. Rooms a bit old, but still inline with natural look of entire island. Reef is close, and full of all possible fishes. We had pleasure to see almost every single spices, including small shark, small baracuda and on our last day, we swam with a turtle. I sincerely recommend this island to all true, unspoilt nature lovers, not looking for a luxury of artifical resorts, but still people who like to endulge themselves with good food and wine, while being in unspoilt nature, having both active vacation, both enyoing silence and lying on the beach . What magic combination it is! The only objection is not to the hotel, but to few tourists who did no research, and came there with kids. The current along the island is very strong and too dangerous for kids (except for kids accompanied by diving instructors or experienced diver/snorkelers parents). We will for sure try to use the opportunity to go there once more, before the renovation brings new looks and higher prices.
