Overall, the trip was very enjoyable.

Most staff are very friendly except a “white” man who like a manager Ferenc, never say hello to us but he always talks to non-Chinese people. Maybe some Chinese are not good at English, but at least he should say hello.I think this is racial discrimination.
In addition, the spa is too bad. I told her to be harder, but still no power. This should not be called massage, it should be called touch.

Not the best but not bad

Overall experience is pretty good except for deep diving and snorkeling because I expected the water to be crystal clear, maybe my expectation is too high. Staffs are very friendly but sometimes it took too long to request a buggy (car).

Fabulous Honeymoon Experience

This trip was easily the trip of a lifetime for us, and it will be quite some time before we stop talking about it! We are literally surprised around every corner as we found something unexpected, from a honeymoon gifts upon our arrival, not to mention the incredible services and attention given to us.

Our agent (Roy from travel channel) and butler (Muhuthaar) was clearly working behind the scenes throughout our trip to ensure that we were safe, well and taken care of, allowing us to get everything we were hoping for out of our trip to Maldives , and MORE!
