The tips we left for the luggage service was smashed into pieces and was put into one of our luggage. How could a five star resort allowed this kind of situation to happen? Our honeymoon memories was almost ruined by this unpleasant experience ... We wrote an email to complian but got no reply until now.

I went there with a friend who is also a see life lover and It was perfect, since we pass the airport gate until the last minute. All starts with a gently staff welcoming you and arranging all the luggage check in for the seaplane. The flight is awesome, with breathtaking views. Once you land at the hotel, they welcome...

Kihaad is a very beautiful island with white sandy beaches not found on every island in the Maldives. The gardens are kept daily and walking around the inner island tracks, in the shade, is always a pleasure. Cooler, very pretty and you will always see the gardeners raking leaves. We booked bed and breakfast for 10 nights in September 2014....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unwind, Relax and celebrate Life. Redefined, refurbished and recognized as KIHAAD Maldives, nestled on its own 600 meters long, coconut-shaped island, complete with lush green vegetation, long white soft beaches and an adjacent house reef. Whilst the resort offers 124 spacious, private villas and whole range of classic and natural facilities, majority of the island has still been left in its pristine natural state and is a true barefoot Paradise! No News- No Shoes! KIHAAD - named traditionally in local Dhivehi language as `young coconut island` with a beach length of some 1,200 meters around the Island, is a haven of peace, tranquility and serenity. Proudly nestled within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the entire Island and lagoon is the exclusive and private domain of our guests set just across the Hanifaru Bay which is a world renowned Marine Protected Area (MPA) announced by UNESCO, where whale sharks and manta rays meet seasonally and many turtles can be watched along with the delicate coral life. Just like UNESCO, the philosophy of KIHAAD is to focus on the preservation of marine life and local lifestyle, traditional ways and customs of serving and living together. That is why we are the first 'Reserve' island in the Maldives. Guests may fly-in by a scenic Domestic 25-minute flight from the Domestic Airport at Male', the capital of the Maldives to Dharavandhoo Domestic Airport, the closest airport in the area which only 5-minute speedboat to the island of KIHAAD. Relax in our K Spa with Holistic Asian treatments or go for barefoot walks on the long soft beached that stretch out around the entire island. Join us for a lobster Beach BBQ or stargaze the clear night skies on the jetty. Paradise awaits you. ... more   less
