Excellent customer service. All members of staff worked hard to make our stay enjoyable. We were cared for as soon as we landed at Male. On our return a member of staff was with us until we completed check in to make sure everything went smoothly.

I was in Kihaa Maldives years and years ago a nd was very excited to go back. The island is beautiful and beautifully located. It is a paradise. The staff will make your stay incredible, especially the bar and cleaning stuff. What we did not enjoy is that the management is quite poor and they are clearly not organised. On pick up they were about to make us go on a domestic flight instead of the sea plane we paid additionally for. This was quickly addressed. Then two of our activities were cancelled without us being informed, we found out as we were about to go on the activity, they tried to charge us extra for things that were not included, they continued to misinform us, also with our PCRs, our transfer back to Male etc. The food quality is incredibly disappointing for a 5 star hotel. It is really rather terrible. Apparently the island has recently changed management - we hope it will change management again because the current members are not interested in giving guests the experience that a resort and island like this should. We recommend the place, it is beautiful, the diving centre offers amazing activities and it’s separate to the hotel. Just bear in mind about the food and the fact that management is likely to screw something up. Other than that, one of the best holidays we’ve had. Amazing for couples, groups of friends and families with kids too.

the hotel itself is very beautiful and quiet and lovely however they have plenty of things that they can improve on.. starting with the prices of things. for starters the room that I stayed in came up to a total of a little over US$4000 and it just wasn’t worth the money. yes the room was nice but it was not worth $4000. secondly they don’t have any all inclusive packages that would be helpful for customers to save money. breakfast and dinner is included but lunch isn’t and then the fee for lunch is $150 per day and that does not include drinks so just imagine paying that if you’re staying there for two weeks. the manager is more than helpful and so is front desk reception. most of the servers in the buffet area have very nasty attitudes & don’t like doing their job clearly. the fans are never on so it’s always ridiculously hot wherever you go.. as for breakfast dinner and lunch the options are always pretty much the same and not much to choose from.. room service should be 24 hours or at least until 4/5 am considering the fact that dinner ends at 9 PM and breakfast starts at 7 AM I’m pretty sure plenty of people are really hungry during that time frame and there are no microwaves in the rooms so people pretty much just starve until its time to eat. I would also like to add the fact that I was charged $40 for a single burger & $15 for apple juice. I understand that this is a vacation and some prices are going to be different but that is just beyond ridiculous.

One of the few known islands which you can still walk around completely on the beach. Well organized transfer and nice reception and bar. Great dive center. For the price, the food needs drastic improvement and rooms need some brush up. For us, the steakhouse doesn't fit with the hotel and had the best food but with a heavy price tag. We had half board and the buffet at dinner had 6 choices of main courses but only 3 meats. The meat quality was also not good and they ran out of food quickly. For the price we paid, we would try another resort next time in the same area.

Not a lot of Americans get this far. Long way to go, so don't plan on seeing many fellow Americans. It is worth it. This is at a UNSECO biosphere site. It is an island with rooms and luxury for those trying to break away from life for a few days. No cars, No stores, No sundries stores, no vending. Not a potato chip - Literally with in miles (by boat) I suggest a semi beach bum life style. Bare foot and baggies. You eat, drink and relax and have fun. Snorkeling is great, scuba, jet ski, The sea life is abundant. Every evening an event to meet and greet at the main pool area. The rooms are very clean (housekeeping is excellent). The staff and reception learn your names and note your preferences, with you for every need. I travel often and have seen many resorts. This is in the top of the list. They work so hard to make your stay for you. Our "handler" greeter at the terminal. Can't say a enough, Took us from terminal to terminal, to process and got us on the "local" to the Island - the resort is the island and vice versa. These folks run on their own Kihaa (Island time). WIFI was problem free. If you want my honest opinion- yes worth the trip. The change from top gear to idling is a noticeable and welcome shift in your life. I say twist your lid off and let the stress bubble away.
