Hotel's Favourite
We just came back from our holiday and already miss the leisure days in the Indian ocean. As “Maldives addicted” we have stayed in so many hotels since 2005 that we just stopped counting at some point. I don’t write a review every time but this time it’s a must. First of all, I want to say a big thank you to the GM Mr Srikanth Devarapalli, a very kind man and true professional! Thanks to him we had the chance to visit this beautiful island and to experience one of our greatest holidays. What makes the resort so special: 1. All the island is with such a lush greenery, it’s like a jungle. At the moment you arrive you are captured by its beauty. 2. Fantastic house coral reef. It starts from the main restaurant and you can enjoy right up to the end of the water villas. Full of fishes, sharks, two times we saw a turtle and lobsters hiding under a big coral. Exceptional! 3. Restaurants! Every day different options but still we were every day having lunch in our favourite Beach grill! You have the shadow in the sunny days but in the evening all tables are out on the sand for a dinner under the stars/palms :) There are two restaurants which are nestled in the “jungle”, surrounded by bushes and trees - Le Asiatique and Amazonico. In the Asian we witnessed a great show at the Teppanyaki- the cook was juggling with a raw egg, then threw it into his hat and pulled out a chicken instead. The kids were watching with their mouths open all the time. The South American restaurant is Amazonico, delicious food accompanied by the sounds of latin music and guitars. I have to say that everywhere we had so so delicious meals, very beautifully arranged. Nearly most of the evenings there were organised special private dinners on the beach. The preparation starts from the afternoon when the staff are carving the shapes of mantas or hearts in the sand, then light them up and it looks really majestic in the night. The cinema under the stars was also booked almost every night. A big sofa bed is moved on the beach and the screen is put in front so only the ocean is behind. They also organise once per week a Gala dinner at the main restaurant. We were very surprised as trust me not in every hotel they put so much efforts. All the tables from the restaurant were put outside on the beach, decorated, there was a live music too, kids running around, it felt like a New Year’s Eve party. Grill stations were also settled and there was a big choice of fish and meats and whatever you may wish. 4. We had an outstanding accommodation. The villas are large, comfortable, always clean. The designers have made a very clever decision about the roofs of the houses, also there are flowers on the walls even of the water villas. We enjoyed so much riding on the bicycle around. 5.The Spa is absolutely fantastic. All massage rooms are actually very exotic cabanas with names of flowers, I even had the feeling that I am somewhere in Malaysia... 6. Kids club fortunately is open all day, no closures at all. They were full with activities. Our younger child was so happy every time I took him there. The kids enjoyed movies with popcorn, making bracelets, feeding the fish on the jetty, making cocktails and pizzas and so many other games. 7. Something that impressed me very much was the hotel application on the phone. Once on your phone, you can actually do everything from here - book and cancel reservations, view the menus of the restaurants ( even the kids menus are different ) , get all the info you need. I remember something similar, this high quality, on brand new cruise ship two years ago, so much things, so easy to work with. I look at my review now and I understand it is probably the longest “speechless” opinion but I really wanted to share all this stuff. I highly recommend this property because it is new, modern, with a very good management in all departments, great food, rich wine and drinks selection. All in all the hotel combines everything that I have ever seen in the other hotels, they didn’t miss anything. Before I finish I would like to thank the people who took a good care after us- Latheef, KD, Borhan and our butler Dave. We were very happy to meet the head sommelier Nash and his team from Zimbabwe, such nice people. All waiters in the Grill were perfect too. Thank you and can’t wait to come back!

Thank you!

The island, the rooms, the food, the wine, and most importantly the staff and service are exceptional. If you are having doubts, just book it - you won't be disappointed. Even before we booked, the hotel was amazingly responsive in helping us organise our honeymoon. We had to change our plans several times because of the changing Covid restrictions and requirements and the resort remained understanding and helpful. As soon as we arrived, we met our dedicated butler, Fayaz, who was remarkable and always at hand to help organise an activity, book a restaurant, arrange our covid tests, recommend where to snorkel or tell us more about the island and the Maldives. We chose a Water Villa with Pool and highly recommend it. The room and the pool are way bigger than they look in the pictures, and it is so nice to sit in the pool under the stars at night, and as a lookout to spot marine life during the day. Directly from our villa, and along the walkway back to the beach we saw so many friendly reef sharks, shoals of fish, colourful parrotfish, a puffer, and spotted eagle rays. Even a huge nurse shark that scared us even though we later found out was completely harmless and quite cute. Whilst everybody likes cycling or getting buggies driving them around the island, we always walked on the lookout for our fish friends. The house reef is lovely around by Aqua restaurant and on the right side of the water villas. It is easy to swim to and if you head out at low tide in the early morning you will have great visibility of all the colourful fish. Whilst we didn’t see turtles on the reef this time, we decided to go for the 2-hour guided jet ski tour, which was a fantastic decision. Tin-tin (Mishah) and Fahudu were brilliant guides. They rode on one Jet-ski and we followed behind bouncing across their wake. After zooming across the waves, we settled at a special location where we jumped in and snorkelled and saw lots of turtles. Then they took us to a small island, and then on to a sandbank in the middle of the ocean before we sped off on those crazy jet skis across some huge waves back home. It was exhilarating and great fun and I’d recommend this trip a lot! The food was delicious at every restaurant, the beach club and grill probably being our favourite restaurant, but we also really recommend the Indian food you get at Aqua! It is better than many of the curries we have tasted in our travels across India. All of the chefs, and waiters and waitresses are so polite and helpful and go out of their way to tend to your needs. In particular, Noora who, after I mentioned that we liked matcha tea, searched the island and met us at breakfast with it. A huge shout out goes to the sommelier team, Joseph, Brian and Lee who helped us navigate our way through many of the delicious array of 92+ exceptional wines that are all part of the all-inclusive plan. We would explain our meal and get perfectly matched wines selected by the team and our glasses were never empty. Every evening we would end up at the sunset bar and try out the different delicious cocktails. We drank a lot of those so really need to thank the whole team for being brilliant - Faya, Arlim, Samhu, Ali, and Shafeegu. We had two extra experiences, the cinema under the stars, and the "dine by the sea", both of which were incredibly romantic and created once in a lifetime memories. Thanks so much to Samah, Faya and the rest of the "dine by design" team. Our cleaner Hassan (didi) made the place sparkle and smell amazing every day and even recognised that we really enjoyed a bubble bath and made multiple beautiful flower displays for us which were always welcome at the end of the day. Thank you to the whole Emerald team for such a great honeymoon.
