As you can see from the title this holiday was my birthday present, and what a present. The journey from Male Airport to the island was a fantastic 40 min speedboat ride. The island itself truly is a no news, no shoes place with no TV in the room, no WI-FI access and only the one bar and restaurant so no need to think about where to eat and drink.
The sea life is truly amazing and as this was my first attempt at snorkelling I couldn't have asked for a better start, within the first few days we had seen sting rays, eagle rays and several black tip sharks of varing sizes as well as fish in every shape size and colour you can imagine.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and the food enjoyable, you get your usual people who complain about the food and expect more, well if you want more variety I suggest you pay the extra money and go for a higher star rated resort.
The one piece of advice I would give is to take plenty of mosquito repellent and anti histamine cream/tablets as 2 of the people travelling with us were bitten daily.
There are several dining options and we had the All Inclusive which is a must as it could prove quite costly otherwise.
A truly wonderful experience which I sincerely hope to be fortunate enough to repeat.
