We had a beyond epic experience. It was a dream come true honeymoon, that I’m sure we owe in large part to you.

Everything was seamless, we were treated well from the airport to the resort, and we scored on the accommodations. Thank you for everything you did to make it unforgettable.

We’ll be happy to leave reviews for you and will keep you in mind for future travel. I think we caught the travel bug!

Very clean island, great modern rooms.
Found our 2. th home on this island. We don’t need to visit another hotel in Maldives. We found the right place for ourselves.
