Best Honeymoon destination ever 2020
Words can't express how amazing this resort is. From the moment we have arrived at the moment we left everything was beyond our expectations. Starting with villa host Igga, who has been by far the most welcoming accommodating and took care of us the whole stay. The food each day was amazing with the best restaurant manager and staff that brought us all our favorite drinks and food, I would like to thank Asir the restaurant manager for giving us the best experience and honeymoon dinner. I also want to thank Adam our driver around the Island. If you are reading this don't hesitate to book this resort, it's worth every dollar. Thank you all to the staff to the best experince, we already miss you.
My wife and I decided to go to the Maldives for our honeymoon. We stayed at Emerald for 7 nights. Upon arrival we got a complementary upgrade to a pool water villa. Our butler Dave was always there for us and helping us with all our inquiries (when my wife had twisted her ankle, he brought us a cream for sport injuries in a matter of minutes). All the staff, from waiter to manager, were always friendly and giving their absolute best to make you enjoy your vacation as much as possible (we booked a cinema under the stars experience which had to be postponed three times due to the weather, meaning the staff had to set everything up and take everything down there times; in the end it was a very romantic experience). The food and drinks were always delicious and the activities like snorkeling with turtles were really great. A specials thanks to Dave, Achmed, Ali, Dilka, Joseph, Ratta, Mathias (for the diving), KD, Rao (one of the other managers, unfortunately I can't remember the name correctly) and all the others whose names I forgot for making this an unforgettable honeymoon. We are looking forward to coming back soon.

Out of this world!
We had the most amazing 10 days in paradise. Without doubt the best hotel we’ve ever stayed in, stunning property, incredible location, wonderful staff, delicious food and unbelievable snorkelling and diving. Covid-precautions We were unsure of going away given the pandemic, but shouldn’t have worried and this was the first time we could properly relax in 2020. We were tested upon arrival, as were all guests and regular tests for staff. Temperatures were checked twice daily and recorded, and the standard of cleanliness was exemplary. The breakfast buffet was behind screens and served by staff, so was completely safe, tables were spread out and staff wore masks and were respectful of space. Amazing staff No request was too much, and they were all so friendly and courteous. Hassan met us from the seaplane and looked after us the whole week, booking dinner, arranging golf carts to collect us, etc. Aldo the head chef came and spoke to us every day to ensure our needs as vegetarians were perfectly catered for. KD, the food and drinks manager welcomed us at every meal, arranging really special experiences with amazing food and cocktails, romantic meals on the beach and a mind blowing cinema experience. Benny cooked us the most amazing selection of local curries, and saved us some for breakfast with eggs. Areej, along with Latheef and Ratta ensured we were well looked after, our glasses were never empty, and prepared our cocktails as we approached and never let our champagne glasses run dry. Ali made wonderful cocktails and taught us to make them. We’ve eaten at amazing restaurants in London and around the world, and Emerald was up there as Michelin quality. Rooms and resort We stayed in the most wonderful water villa. The quality of the furnishings and rooms was immaculate, beautiful attention to details, stunning spacious bathrooms, wonderful terraces with pools, swingbeds and ocean access. And absolutely perfect housekeeping. The restaurants were all uniquely beautiful, as was the spa and bar. Tennis courts with chilled drinks, and wet towels to cool you down - such attention to detail. Snorkelling and diving Chika, Matias and Moussa were brilliant. The highlight of our trip was swimming with 40+ manta rays in Hanifaru Bay. Chika organised the trip for us, planning for the optimal chance of seeing them, and it was absolutely breathtaking. My partner was nervous about diving and left the week loving it as Chika was brilliant, patient and took every care to make her feel comfortable at all times. The extra care taken by the TGI dive team during the pandemic was impressive, constantly disinfecting everything, we felt completely safe. We dived and snorkelled with the whole team, seeing multiple Mantas, Turtles, Stingray, Sharks and more - just incredible. Overall there aren’t enough stars in the sky to rate this resort! We are looking forward to going back as soon as we can.
