Property Highlights

The villas are incredibly spacious with luxury beddings and pillows. You can definitely spend all day here! The house reef is great with an abundance of fish and stingrays. Food was world class and the must try cocktail is the ‘Maldivian Sling’ – a slight twist on the signature Singapore Sling but not one to disappoint!

A superb island with top class service. Stunning villas and food was absolutely amazing. Marine butlers are available for all your water sports arrangements, they can even be your guide for snorkelling around the house reef, and explain the different types of fish and stingrays. This definitely made a different to the snorkelling experience. The Main pool is well serviced with super attentive staff.
