This is a new establishment on a local island... First off, this is not the Maldives you see on tv/adverts... but then you are not spending the money to stay on these fabulous islands. The good thing about The Strand is the beach!!They have a few sunbeds but no shelter, and it gets v v hot!! ! because this is a Muslim Island, you have to keep arms and legs covered when you leave meaning outside of this hotel you can not sunbath.. also there really isn't anywhere else to go on this small island.! 2 little shops, 2 little cafes both very cheap and stock all the necessities. There is nothing to do on Gulhi. So if its peace and quietness you want, hotel the strand is fine. just keep your expectations low and you will be fine. We did go on a day trip to Kandooma resort and paid the 100$ to spend on the resort. This was heaven, everything you expect from a 4star resort island but was hard to come back to Gulhi. IAnything longer than a few days would have cracked me up except i met some lovely Polish friends that made my holiday.

Room Tip: get the beach cabannas. Order food an hour before you want to eat. Expect delays of 8 hours to get an answer from reception Go to the local cafe for change of food and 1/3 the price in the restaurant. Organise a day trip to the other maldive island resorts
