Very quiet and relaxing at athuruga

athuruga63A place that’s excellent run, with excellent staff. Really well-enjoyed by Italians & Germans (the food is affected by this!). Our seashore villa was quite cosy. We met with many people who’d returned again to Athuruga, but had never seen another isle & time. The reviews here likely show that. Having been to other islands, we believed the house reef was a little unsatisfactory in regard to coral well-being (although we’ve never seen plenty of turtles!). The isle does not actually lend itself so well to sailing & windsurfing (although all these are reachable). All in all a really pleasurable holiday & a fantastic destination.
This may be the most effective location for Honeymoon.. We stayed in Villa 5 that’s a Deluxe Beachfront Villa.. Soaking jointly in the open air jet pool, drinking champagne and eating fresh strawberries.. OMG!
The photos in the booklets usually do not do justice to it, it’s totally breathtaking. We stayed in villa 30 which had to be among the biggest villas for seeing the sun set from your own personal lounger every evening. The rooms were spotless and excellent. The food was fairly amazing and we had no criticisms whatsoever. There was an excellent alternative for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily to cater for all tastes. We believed switching between buffet and a la carte was astonishing. Yes, we agree with other reviews that the drinks are quite expensive but bottled water is offered in most rooms each day and you’ll have the ability to request more water from reception at any given time free of charge so that you’re only paying for drinks together with your meals and following dinner – if you elect to take a seat in the pub. It’s not the type of holiday as it’s so relaxing and peaceful so we did not mind paying the prices, where you’d drink a lot anyhow. All the staff were kind and friendly, they made us feel really welcome. We liked the fact you’d exactly the same waiter every day also, it was nice. We went over to the Banyan one day and we didn’t think that it’d the same “magic” about it as Angsana. An entirely different feeling was and it did not seem as private. We’d definitely stay in the Angsana when we come back. When it comes to Isle unsuitable for children, we do not agree with this. We dont have kids ourselves and would likely decide to stay with an adult resort that’s only if we had the choice but there were a few toddlers (who BTW weren’t exceedingly noisy!) There and we had noted by how great a place since it’s clean and silent, it truly is to bring children. We’d certainly take kids there before going into a “child friendly” resort in spain etc. We would highly recommend Angsana for anyone thinking of going to the Maldives.
athuruga42My partner and I stayed in villa No.16 for six nights, we used our health spa every day – excellent way to wind down in the evening after a “difficult” day of reading – snorkelling – eating etc.
The highlight of the stay was the staff in the resort, they were all fantastic – friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them,
The staffs are actually friendly as well as the food is extremely good additionally.. Nothing I really could complain.. If u like peace and quiet, amazing food, friendly ppl, finest house reef. Angsana Ihuru is the place for u !!~ Best vacation ever. About to go back for our 1 year wedding
Ourselves would like to especially single out “Ufaa” – “Dia” – and “Astried” from the top desk they were delightful young ladies and also “Ilyas” ourchef…..he cooks eggs and waffles to perfection.
We did the dolphin seeing trip and seen Banyan tree several times (lovely) – Ihuru is an incredibly relaxing peaceful place to get a rest, we will definately be returning.
The jetty was under yes and repair the wines are quite pricey but what the heck – I failed to go to the Maldives to take a look at the jetty and
This is the aquatic jewel. The reef is absolutely amazing – great fresh coral growth and extremely reachable. No need for seaplane transport – 25 minitutes by speedboat – saves cost and hassle.
Rooms comfy, if a bit ‘modern’ in lime green and black decor. Well kept by exceptional room service.
Food really fresh with day-to-day barbecue and salad leaves grown on Island.
Desalinated water served at table per bottle – preposterous!
Wine charged at minimum $38 per bottle – little wonder the Montana Marlborough Sav. Is out of date (that was $58)
An excellent guy from New Zealand, who we had met in Oz at Heron Island. We think he’ll sort out some of the exhorbitant costs. He’s an excellent staff.
Our tenth visit to Maldives, booked at MaldivesDirect, who as usual got us the very best room, as he sees every resort he offers, so no nasty surprises! Finest visit to date.
