Let’s start the review!

Location

Most maldivian hotel complexes are located on small islands in the ocean, since the state itself is a set of atolls located at a distance from each other. “Paradise Island Resort” was no exception – it occupied almost the entire small island, you can get here by boat from the capital male, where the international airport is located.

Tourists who are going to visit the tropical archipelago know that there are no special attractions in the Maldives – the highlight of the resort are endless snow-white beaches, an endless ocean with interesting underwater inhabitants and picturesque nature. People come here to relax and recharge their energy before working days, to find themself in an atmosphere of complete tranquility and relaxation.

Many travelers note the successful location of the complex – the airport is literally ten kilometers away, speedboats regularly depart to it. This feature is a very important plus, especially for tired tourists after many hours of flight.

Alena, Volgograd: “We rested here in February, it was the season in the Maldives. It is convenient to get to the complex – only fifteen minutes by a small boat. The hotel has an administrator who explained and showed us everything, and then helped with all the questions and problems. We’ll definitely come back to Paradise again!”

Beaches & Pools

The hotel complex boasts a developed infrastructure – every guest, even the most demanding, will find something to do. Many people come here for the warm Indian Ocean – a short walk away is a clean well-groomed sandy beach, equipped with free sunbeds and umbrellas. There is a small lounge bar on the coast offering delicious drinks and fruit juices and smoothies.

For those who do not particularly like to swim in sea water, there are several spacious pools, which are cleaned regularly. The increase in depth in them occurs gradually, so such pools are suitable for kids.

Especially for children, employees leave toys near the pools, so parents can not worry about the entertainment of children. Sun loungers and parasols in this area are also provided free of charge, guests can always find a free place.

Marina, Moscow: “From our suite there was an exit directly to the ocean coast – in some places there were coral reefs, but this did not interfere with swimming. The ocean is stunning, as is the beach. The water is pure, bright azure in color, there are many free sun loungers on the coast. There is an atmosphere of complete peace on the island!”

Since the hotel boasts a location on the first line from the ocean, it offers a lot of services for outdoor activities. At the complex there is a diving center, which conducts classes for those who wish and special equipment is issued for diving into the ocean depths.

Five-star hotel complex Paradise Island Resort & Spa has not forgotten about the leisure of young guests – a safe open-air playground is open for them, qualified animators work and interesting performances are periodically held.

Alexander, Kaliningrad: “The hotel has animators who perfectly entertain children. In the evenings, various shows and performances are organized, several times the child even tried to make aqua makeup. The most memorable entertainment is the daily feeding of small sharks and rays from the pier.”

Accommodation

The hotel is comfortably and equipped with everything necessary for a relaxing holiday. Guests can book original and non-standard accommodation options – a bungalow with its access to the beach, located almost at the water’s edge, a villa in a house standing in the ocean on stilts, or a spacious suite (two hundred square meters. m.) with a private pool. Also very comfortable will be accommodation in a villa located in the middle of a lush tropical garden, or in a villa with its own jacuzzi.

A feature of the object is that most of its rooms are equipped for people with disabilities (it is necessary to find out from the administrator when booking). For newlyweds, staff can decorate any suite and order fresh flowers. When choosing an option, you need to take into account the fact that the zones in the hotel are divided into space for smokers or non-smokers.

Anastasia, Kazan: “It is good to come here with companies or large families – you can take the whole villa in the garden or in a house on stilts. In the rooms on the windows there are good mosquito nets – neither mosquitoes nor other insects inside were observed. Repairs are fresh, cleaned even several times a day, if necessary. “
