The sand is soft so you can take your shoes off and feel the sand between your toes and the sun on your skin.

With Maldivian character throughout, the villas are beautifully decorated with sensational views of the surrounding landscape. It feels like a private island so you can truly enjoy peace and tranquillity.  

On the dining scene, there is a wonderful a la carte restaurant located over water with uninterrupted views of the sunset, or a buffet style restaurant located on the beach to cater to every taste. Head to the Ruhgandu wine lounge to enjoy a selection of wines, old world and new from around the world.
