it was great experience, I like the beach and Thai restuarant. Also pretty fun experience for scruba diving... :)
Loved the rooms. We stayed in Overwater Bungalow. Cozy and comfortable. Loved everything about it: Bed, Sofa, Terrace, Bathroom, amenities, access to the water. Amazing place! The service is ridiculous in the best sense. People are extremely friendly, always willing to assist and help with just about any request. Staff really elevates the experience. Some will even have those small spontaneous details that make the experience memorable. Loved the Thai Restaurant. It was the only restaurant we went to twice during our stay. It is just fantastic, both the food as well as the service. Beaches are just beautiful. Real paradise. I believe the hotel offers an exceptional service, so it is good value for the money. Transfer from the airport is one of the cheapest you will find in most high-end resorts in Maldives as well. We hope we can return in the future for wedding anniversary or similar. I think the positives outweigh the negatives. Food and drinks are pricey, no doubt. Can this be changed? Maybe not. Extras can be pricey too, especially massages. I took a beginners surfing session and if you make it an hourly rate, for general public 100$/hr surfing session, including an awesome ride to the surf break on a nice boat may seem too expensive. I think it is not that expensive (not really a negative point, but something they could improve and get more clients if prices went down a bit). Surfing (or just trying) is just a lot of fun. Now, 200+ $ for 1hr massage session, this I think is too expensive. Other extras were just too outrageous I don't even remember the numbers (swimming with whale shark, charged as a trip to the moon). And lastly, I think prices should be listed with the 10% service + 12% GST already included (this applies to everything: food, beverages, activities).
i like the water banglows and the coffee shop , also i like going every day to the near island it take 3 min only all day free trip . i do not like checkout time at 12:00 and my flight time 19:00 and wait at the resort .
A paradise on earth. If you want a complete detach from the crazy world go there with whom you love. The staff is taking loving care of you. The bungalow (we had sunrise beachfront villa, the most inexpensively) is a dream. You will be happy, feel peace and harmony. It was marvelous. The food in á la carte restaurants was not always on the level of five stars. The buffets were excellent.
The activities. Dive center. Over water pool villa. Beautiful lagoon. Kids club. Free lunch for kids at the pool. The main pool area. Nanny service. Perfect family resort. Service was inconsistent and slow at times. Also Buggy service was slow or unavailable a few times. Food quality can be improved especially for that price. Cocktails at Aqua bar not the quality I expected. Very slow Wifi...enough for emails and browsing but if you're a heavy social media user then better to get a sim card from the airport at arrival.
The place is awesome and the staffs of anatara are very friendly and helpful.The food is excellant.
i was expecting better quality of food
The scenery was heavenly. The staff were supurb. We liked everything
Everything was perfect!
Staff is the friendliest I have seen, location and the room was excellent. During booking I provided my flight details and when the staff collected the luggage at the airport, they put a tag on my luggage and I can see my room number on it. However, when I reached the place it took them approximately 30-45 minutes to make up the room. Each minute was like a year, as I was travelling with 2 small kids after a long and tiresome journey.
My family recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma and can only recommend it. We arrived at Male airport and were greeted by a representative of the hotel who then took us by a 45min speedboat ride to the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma. The staff was excellent, knowledgeable and very friendly. Our one year old son enjoyed the rainshower in the private Beach Villa, the hammock and the beach views just as much as we did. The Villas offered all amenties like bathrobes, towels, fresh oranges and tea and coffee. The pool, jacuzzi and the baby pool was surrounded by plenty of sun loungers and beanbags for sunbathing and simply lazing around. Our stay inclused complimentary snorkling classes which my husband took full advantage of. The meals were well catered for and we had many choices in the various restaurants from warm meals like pizza, chicken nuggets, rissottos to fresh salads,sandwiches and BBQ's.There was a hut dedicated to chidren with toys, books and tabletennis facilities. Our son spend ours there playing in sand and with ballons. the main reception are has a bar and free internet for guests to use. At night a life band or a DJ entertains guest and many staff join in. The island has a very family and comfortable feel, one is looked after and if need be there is a spa which can assit with last minute beauty treatments or even stress relief massages and facials. The guest relationships manager looked after us during our stay and assisted to make arrangment for diving classes and even lend us his underwater camera to capture our first underwater adventure. There was nothing for us to do, sit back relax and enjoy the beaty of this resort. We are eager to go back soon...
