Each evening your room boy turns down your bed sheet for you. A different decoration each time. Sometimes with flowers.
All villas have a water tap outside to wash the sand from your feet before entering, but refreshing anytime.
A view of the internal bungalows ... of course it's better sitting in fornt of the sea, but if you wanna save some bucks, then choose this kind of accomodation.
I have only been to the Banyan Tree in Vabbinfaru.
This is a five star hotel. The most unique thing is that the whole Island, though small, is occupied by this hotel, and hotel residents can walk round the Island on its beautiful beaches, or kayak in the shallow waters surrounding the Island. The seashore is neatly prepared such that you can even order a sunset dinner under the shelter by the seaside.
Kanuhura Sun Resort & Spa in Maldives, opened in February 2000, is a luxurious five star hotel, offering the highest standard of accommodation, service and culinary experience.
A well planned nationality mix gives the resort a truly international feel and brings together interesting people from diverse cultural backgrounds and various walks of life.
Every effort has been made to retain the natural beauty of the island, and wherever possible natural materials have been used. Only one third of the island surface has been used for buildings, leaving a feel of spaciousness and tropical splendour.
Complimented by its size and layout, Kanuhura offers a choice of pure relaxation, or for the more sports oriented, an active holiday experience.
On all but the main island a hotel is an island resort that occupies all of the island ( afew islands have 2 or 3 resorts). Most islands are small enough to walk round in 20-40 minutes. Most are expensive and need booking before you arrive.
Bandos is good, but there are so many....
Embudu village is among the CHEAPEST resorts in Maldives, I paid US$100 for a double (July 2001) + transfer US$50. It's hard to find anything cheaper if you don't want to stay in Male'.
Note that you have to pay for the transportation to the resorts, and if you stay only for a couple of days, it can actually be more expensive than the hotel bill.
Embudu village is nice if you're into snorkeling or diving, but there isn't really much going on at night time. The food is ok but not anything special. Drinks are US$3-4, tip at least US$2 per day. More info available here: http://www.visitmaldives.com/resorts/is_embudu.html
This Hotel is on a small Island approx 700 mtrs long, it has 100 rooms,
This Hotel has the following facilities
On a very nice Island, which has a very nice house reef and is excellent for snorkelling or scuba diving.
Walk along a wooden jetty out to your Water Bungallow ,in a sheltered lagoon, water about waist high, clear and full of exotic fish and a few Sharks (small and young,no danger)And only appear at nightime. Room clean,airy with mini fridge BUT? you have to pay for the contents (they are double if not more than shop prices,so beware)
Beautifull view, balcony with steps leading down to the water for you early morning swim! Your own sun loungers, large bathroom, Room always kept clean and tidy. And air conditioning,a must.
Hotel is a bit older but rooms are clean. Maldives is a vacation spot tucked away for more travelers. Hotel resorts are very expensive and there are no real budget places to stay with the exception of on the island of Male, which is very overcrowded. Everything is imported, so hang on to your wallet. A soda or even a bottle of water will run you 5-6 USD. Not a place to go, unless your rich and money is no object.
Pool and food were a outstanding.
We choosed this island out of many others, as they offered an all-inclusive which suited our needs... Well, at the end we were more than enthusiast, even if we had almost 7/7 rainy days... Maldives are really wonderful, Athuruga is simply the typical island people see on brochures. We had a beach bungalow as we thought that overwater ones would be too loud, but it wasn't true. Over water there are very big, modern and you can enjoy the holiday at best. But anyway, also beach ones were good, with the particularity (?) of the outdoor shower, very beautiful.
The sand is white, the water is trasparent, what do u want more? :-)
