In addition to that the hotel is just setting up an arts and cultural programme which will make this place even more unique. Young artists will be here in residence and not only just...

Our honeymoon destination, booked with Virgin Holidays as a package (sadly they don't do this location any more) and just a superb 10 days of sun, sand, sea and snorkelling... The rooms were a little bit tired in parts and there is a clear expectation that guests are high-rollers dolling out the dollar bills for everything but it was a...

Three years ago we visited this beautiful Maldivian island and we loved our stay.

A beautiful Island, that is so refreshingly unpretentious. This is a resort for the seasoned traveller, a place to get away from the standard, run-of-the-mill resort service, to feel that you are part of a welcoming village where you definitely feel immediately at home, with staff but also with the other guests. As a couple, we were able to get...
