I Didn’t Want to Leave
What can I say about this resort that hasn’t been said many times in other reviews. Truly 5 stars is not enough to reward this resort. It is everything you would expect from a classy resort in the Maldives. This place is stunningly beautiful. From sitting on our deck on the water villa, riding your bicycle to breakfast and lunch, strolling along the beach, everywhere you look made we want to take a photograph as the views were beautiful. The water villa was well appointed, everything we could have wanted was in it. Large bathroom, huge bath, twin vanity sinks, fantastic shower. The bed and choice of pillows were excellent, good Bose sound system, Nespresso coffee maker, plenty of storage space, spacious deck with chairs and sun beds. The only negative I could mention in the villa was that no drinks, apart from water, both soft or alcoholic were not included in the all inclusive price and if you used the minibar they were expensive. We ate mostly at the Javvu restaurant. We preferred the a la carte nights but to be honest the buffet provided great choice and the quality of food was excellent. We used Dr Ali’s twice and again it was great. The staff at the resort are amazing. They looked after us really well, always with a smile and nothing was too much bother. I enjoyed watching the staff inter departmental soccer/football competition and was made to feel very welcome each time I watched a game. The team of people looking after you here are the real asset of this resort and I cannot praise them enough. I would like to mention a few people. Issey, our host, was a gentleman who looked after us really well. Haleem, our housekeeper, was amazing, friendly and knew our routines and worked around us. Amir in the Manzaru served us great drinks and always had a smile on his face. I could mention countless others such as one of the lifeguards (unfortunately I do not know his name). I cannot swim and have a fear of water however he looked after me and gave me an wonderful experience snorkelling on the coral planting reef. To see the numerous fish and experience this was totally unbelievable and something I will never forget. The staff at this resort are amazing. I enjoyed many conversations with them, to me this is what made my vacation extra special. I will return to the Maldives and when I do I would not think about staying anywhere but this resort. Thank you to the management and all the staff for a wonderful vacation.
Very Well managed Hotel and great place
2 adult, 2 Kids from Germany Stayed he resort last 2 Werks in july 2019 with my Family . Not much to say beyond that the Place is great, people are very friendly and relaxed. Kitchen is top Edge...and believe me I know what good Food is all about. Drinks are cold as they should be. Highly Professional is the Personal contact ( in our case Mrs. Nasy ) who sees you every Day in the Morning to See in everything is ok. You get her whatsapp contact and just in Case you have an issue you text her and he Will Take care. Also you See the resort Manager and the Chef of the kitchen every day. Reef is super with Lifeguard. Bartender , breakfast, lunch and Dinner Service People will Know your prefences After 1 Day. Kids felt very welcome also. Nature is in Great Shape. The people really make the differente; Many examples I Could Share. Thank you shangri la Team. Joerg
Overall best of our five trips to the Maldives! Leo and Mei are most attentive and cater to our every need. Bikash the lifeguard who gave me very sound snorkeling advice (my swimming beside a sea turtle was the highlight), Falah from transport who gave us a great tour and great photoes. Coach Long who helped us form a group for boat trip for my first dolphin gazing, fishing and deep sea snorkeling experience. Josefina from Javvu gave us great lumch service. Our Island hosts Anas (and Ayaan) did a great job, Joy from Chi Spa was amazing and GM Philippe can even perform magic!! All in all simply a magical experience. Kudos to fellow guests from Hong Kong Aaron and Jasmine who were simply a delightful couple and the best snorkeling buddies and dinner double dates one can ever wish for (they eben caught a huge wahoo!). Shangri-la does it again in Maldives, and so much more...
We had an amazing time. Service, facilities, food, location perfectly delivered with a smile. We would have trouble faulting this place. If there was one complaint we would offer the suggestion that the A/C have a gentle night setting. If there was one, we couldn’t get it working. It blew a gale and felt like Antarctica in the morning! But everything else was world class!
