  • Dived in the area for night diving with sharks. One delight! A large number of sharks that swim up to the distance of the outstretched hand. Those who relax on the sand, allow you to get close for in the dense for chic photos!

  • first time in the Maldives, end of March 2019, what to say, I imagined that the place was beautiful but what I saw in this week went beyond all expectations , just arrived on the island we were already bewitched by the colors of the sea of the sky and the white sand. Well-organized village, good amenities, rooms (we booked garden bungalows) clean spacious close to all the amenities (restaurant, shows) cleaning rooms thoughtful and very kind, otherwise stratospheric beach and sea, calm and relaxation absolute as we wanted , kitchen I would say great , even the fact of having all week the same table seems to me a very smart thing. Great bar with piano bar in the evening and where several times they organized dances and parties of various kind very nice, on the contrary in my opinion the show of the evening uninteresting . Overall a wonderful holiday in a dream place. BYE - BYE MALDIVE soon.
