First time in Maldives, it was a dream becomes true when I saw first time the island. So small...I felt to be as in movie (Cast away?) and immediatly I felt to be in heaven. White sand, turquoise sea and high palm trees.
A breathly wind was surronding all the time, to refresh a while in sunny days.
Ok, bungalows are quite old and up-to-date, no hot water (do you really need??), buffet not so much fully improved and no nightlife at all. But....who cares?
What I liked more is the essential lifestyle. No TV, no radio, mobile coverage if you really want to be connected (damn, in vacation?) and internet connection if you want/need.
For the rest, relax at all. Sun, sea, beach, colored fish everywhere, birds screaming all the time, some bats on sunset. For a while I'm back to the past, when we were young and we enjoyed with few things.
Ask yourself what you really want from your vacation and if answer is relax and enjoy nature, this is right place. This is not a 5-star hotel: here all is essential and enough what you need for your vacation. You need more? Go to other places, internet is helpful for this.
All staff is quite nice, always smiling and improving help. If you smile back, you have best deal. I played so hard with them in volleyball (the only free time for them) and I received all best friendship.
Diving is good, instructor is quite nice and competent. But sea does the rest.
Sharks, Napoleon fish and manta...oh my God!! What wonderful watch.
Yes, complaining a while the nature, where in early morning birds start to scream so hard you can't sleep at all. But...it's nature. And I recommend earplugs ;-))
My wife and my friends completed vacation in perfect way. Always smiling and laughing, never complain of everything and even something was not in right way...relax, you are in vacation!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Asdu is probably the smallest resort in the Maldives with an affordable price, apart from just one other more luxurious resort. This is by no means the cheapest resort. You may find other larger resorts of equal standard or of even better facilities with lower prices. We believe the small size of the Island ensures a certain degree of exclusivity, well worth the price we quote to our prospective guests. But we assure you that we have maintained a very consistent price structure over the last 10 years.This Island is especially ideal for those who love to be in a natural setting and prefer simplicity and informality on their vacation. Although the facilities are not deluxe, they are more than adequate and comfortable. ... more less
