We stayed on the island for 10 days at the beginning of May. We chose a beach cottage because we wanted a holiday on the beach and all the rooms on the beach have the beach right in front ( perfect for early morning swims watching the sunrise! ). Modern, classically designed and kept very clean, the sem-detached cottage we had was a perfect retreat from the perfectly hot , sunny weather. The snorkelling and diving were the best yet out of the six islands we have so far visited in the Maldives. The staff were all very helpful and the food varied enough to have something different everyday of our stay and of a very good quality it was too. Couldn't recommend this island enough and personally can't wait to go back.
