Esperienza perfetta! Struttura recentemente ristrutturata e curatissima ! Personale gentilissimo e pronto a prendersi carico di qualsiasi richiesta ! Per quanto riguarda il cibo nell’isola ci sono 3 ristoranti, due alla carte e uno buffet dove c’è una scelta vastissima di pietanze in più gli chef (estremamente gentili) sono disponibili a soddisfare anche richieste extra ad un menu già vario ogni giorno (in 10 giorni non abbiamo mai trovato le stesse cose da mangiare)!! l’atollo sud Ari è considerato il top alle Maldive ed è vero.. il resort ha una misura giusta ne troppo piccolo ne troppo dispersivo, il reef attorno pieno di pesci, squaletti, razze ecc per gli amanti di immersioni e snorkeling è un sogno …il resort offre vari tipi di escursioni (squalo balena, mante , tartarughe, pesca e altro… noleggio kayak , attrezzatura da sub e snorkeling tutto) a prezzi molto convenienti comparando altre strutture! Cosa importantissima il trasferimento organizzato alla perfezione sia andata che ritorno in circa 20/25 minuti di idrovolante senza lunghe attese ! Un ringraziamento particolare allo Chef Alì, grazie di cuore per la sua premura e gentilezza un vero professionista!
