Dream Island - Most Beatiful!
The island is as beautiful as the best dream image can ever be. The fine white sand, huge pristine beach, clear waters in all shades of blue, white and green (yes, it is true!!) and the amazing marine life – colorful corals, fish, sting rays, nurse sharks, baby turtles - just steps or even an arm’s length away from you. All these without dipping into the Maldives waters yet!
The service and the staff are as amazing as the surrounding beauty is. There is nothing too difficult or bothersome and they will go out of their way to accommodate and anticipate all that you will ever need on your holiday.
There is nothing more to ask for. We will be back again for sure.
