Property Highlights

The golf course is one of a kind in the Maldives. It definitely makes the property stand out and is a great option for those who want something more than just a beach holiday.


It is further to get to, but once you are there the journey is worth it. Love the remoteness of the atoll and relaxed atmopshere it offered.
