The Travel Gallery Take - we cannot sign off without talking about the snorkelling and diving. With the added advantage of being the lone resort on this Atoll, you will not need to share it with other resorts and if you are keen on snorkelling, we advise an over water villa so you can just slide off your deck. Although the resort has a kids club, the resort is more popular with couples and honeymooners in wedding season. A great barefoot luxury choice.
