This was a real surprise to us. Ignore the Holiday Inn brand, this place is really very good, and about the only affordable option for most in the Maldives. The accommodation is excellent, especially the beach villas (get one in front of the island’s break), and there could not be a more family friendly environment. When you are done with getting some of the best waves of your life, you can go diving with the in-house team either to the local coral reefs, or better still with the reef sharks! It will change your perspective of these stunning creatures. All in this was one of the best surf trips our team have ever taken. The island is a 40 minute boat ride from Male Int. Airport.
