  • Italian village very organized and equipped for a variety of activities and needs. Beautiful snorkeling with sharks and other fish species as well as blacktip (Napoleon Parrot breeds Eagles etc.). Sports & entertainment very good. Strengths: excellent Italian cook, Maldivians very friendly and soccer field and tv room with football, formula 1 and motogp. During the week there were Cecilia Rodriguez and Ignatius moser. Very negative points: faked all inclusive, chargeable Wi-$47 per week and tax x 3 people about $140. We bought a card from $22 at the airport in Male and lasted the whole week on 3 mobile phones & 1 iPad. Espresso coffee $3.5 + 22% tax, cigarette packet $11. Diving is not used. Having said that, very high rating but not maximum.

  • We chose this place to celebrate our 25 years of marriage together with our son, say and wonderful and little. 12-hour flight from Rome with Neos parties after we arrived in Male, already a sight seeing the atolls from above, then transfer by seaplane, even more beautiful, the vision of the various atolls a show unique in the world, so arrival after about 30 minutes of flight at Alimatha. Warmth and friendliness at reception only, delivery of the keys and then escorted to the room in the middle of the sea, that the feeling in his hand. What about the food, varied and of all the qualities, we really enjoyed it, I am not telling my son (12 years). About the animation, very soft and unobtrusive, a point about Beppe. I mean, seeing is believing. Hope to be back very soon. Marco D.

  • I went for the first time the 8 January 2018 in the company of my girl. This is a beautiful island of Vaavu atoll. Beautiful beach, very white and spotless. Same goes for the sea. Just gorgeous, spotless and very rich in fish. A real paradise, where you can relax either alone either with a partner or family, with children. Note the friendliness and helpfulness of the Maldivians. I can't wait to go back. TO VISIT!

  • Best place for Diving
  • Amazing ocean beauty.
  • Amazing underwater environment.
  • back soon TARA
  • Maldives splendid, splendid sea with very colorful fish, we were visited by sharks close to overwater, as well as an eel and a white race. All inclusive good but only till 24.00. Fine rooms with a sea view bungalow with deck chairs poured (2 per room). For rooms online are available on overwater beach. The eastern part of the island has a good coral reef ... but much of this ruined ... I don't know if by guests or tsunami ... The South and West and can bathe without shoes. It is highly recommended to bring mask, snorkel and fins. Food good and "conforming" to Italian tastes with pasta al dente and properly seasoned. Altogether a very good village.
