A very down to earth resort in a paradise island setting, with delicious food, friendly staff (Anton, Kris, Camille, Nisha, so many of them e.g who mans the fruit stations, waiters at the sunset bar... Etc). The staff made my stay enjoyable even tho I was traveling solo. I find it hard to leave my hammock that is strategically shaded under lush treescape. It is so blissful to sway on it and hear the soft waves and rustling leaves. I also took the chance to take my open water diver course during my stay in the resort with Extradivers. It's such decadence to be taking the "pool lessons" in the beautiful lagoon at the jetty. The helpful and professional diving instructors helped me to complete my owd certification on time. The only downside for me was a super early seaplane transfer back home that left me w 5 hours waiting time at the airport. However, the very kind airport ground staff from Rihiveli, Jaleel, offered to bring me around Male city since I had time to spare. That kind act really becomes the hi-light of my trip as I see the real side of Maldives. A wonderful and memorable experience indeed.
