This is our first trip to the Maldives and like many, the beauty of this place took our breaths away. The pristine waters are exactly what you see on postcards and NatGeo. The island is a 40min boat ride from the international airport so it is very convenient to get on the resort. Food is great and I recommend the Maldivian curry for breakfast and the wife loved the miso soup. Weather was not so good during our stay there from 18 to 22 August 2014 as it was extremely windy & cloudy and rained most of the time (we managed to catch a total of maybe 6 hours of sunshine the whole trip). We enjoyed the trip despite the weather. Things we did: snorkeled at the house reef (complimentary gear that you can keep in the room for the entire stay); Indian head massage (AMAZING); hydrobath pool (we were there almost everyday). There are optional trips out of the island which we did not take. We look forward to returning to Maldives again!
