We stayed there for 3 nights. This was our second visit to the Maldives. Although this was a very short visit, it was a very memorable one. We have been to a lot of snorkeling spots and this is one of the best we've been to (2nd best actually, our best spot was an island, not a resort, in Papua New Guinea). But as a resort, this is the best. Much better than the comparable resorts in the Caribbean, Bora Bora, Great Barrier Reef, etc.
Besides being a very beautiful spot, this resort has a great staff that made a huge improvement to our experience.
We stayed in villa 51, the best and most private Park Water Villa in the resort. It makes a huge difference when you are right above the coral reef! My wife is not a snorkeler but she still enjoyed watching the fish from the villa. They have an outdoor double bed outside the villa. We had 2 nights with clear sky and we stayed outside lying down watching the night sky. There were a bunch of shooting stars on the second night because it was the meteor shower season. That was a great treat for us. Staying outside in the middle of the water was great. No mosquitoes or bugs. The temperature was perfect.
We had to check out at noon on the day of departure because their Park Water Villas are always fully booked. They were so kind to move us to a Park Villa so we had a place to stay until 6pm when they sent us to the ferry leaving the island. After seeing the Park Villa, I would definitely book the Park Water Villa in our future stays because there is no comparison! For a few hundred dollars more, the Park Water Villa is clearly a better choice!
We actually regretted for booking only 3 nights. We really didn't want to leave on the day of departure. This resort will be our place to stay at in our next visit to the Maldives.
