Loving every moment of being in Maldives and I just don’t want to come back. Such a romantic place. It was an expensive all inclusive package from HolidayMe, but it was worth it just to be here. And all water sports were included and we also went to the main island once, so even the quest for shopping was satisfied. The resort was amazing, and the food and dance shows were all superb. There was also a small dance floor so it was a rocking party time for us. Would love to come back again after a couple of years, maybe to a different island.

Quite an experience. Maldives is definitely worth a visit at least once in your life. We had a lot of fun, the resort was good and the ferry ride to the resort was also great. The weather was nice but it is very hot here during the summers, we have got badly sun burned. Holiday me planned a good package for us.

Maldives is an amazing destination for a honeymoon, and if you enjoy water sports then there can be nothing better than this place. There are small islands here, and each island has a resort which caters to all the visitors, so we knew we would be staying there and not go island hopping coz that is very expensive. But what a stay, the 5 days we spent there were the best of my life, the sand, the surf and the sun, everything was right at my doorstep. And the water is just so blue. Hats off to the HolidayMe team for suggesting this place.

Good experience but food is probleming
by Abidah Aziz
If holidayme is hearing this then please ensure that the resorts offers things apart from just seafood and non veg. there were no vegan options, let alone organic food or anything at the resort. So it was not a good trip.

HolidayMe crafted a good itinerary. As expected Maldives is so beautiful that it is a little hard to believe that such a paradise exists. It was a great trip and we enjoyed a hell of a lot. Cant wait to be back.

Freaks me out how blue the water is
by Koyel Sharma
Perfect destination for those who love the sea. Most of the rooms at our resort open up on to the beach and it is so beautiful right in the morning. I wish I could just live in a place like this for ever. holidayMe gave us a cheap package but it didn’t include food so it ended up costing us more. This is a life lesson.

Stargazing all night
by Farooq Asad
Maldives seems like another part of the world. the best part of my stay there was the stargazing trip they took us on at night, where u just lie on the beach and the guide will point out constellations and shooting stars. And the skies are clear so u see a lot of them. HolidayMe did a great job planning this trip.

Nice place for a family vacation. And the kids love the water so it was good to be rid of them for a while. There are staff members keeping an eye on the kids at the resort so there are no worries. Thanks HolidayMe.

Such a beautiful place
by Talal Wakim
Maldives is an amazing place. So beautiful and so serene. I enjoy watersports a lot so this was the only destination for me and my first solo trip. I had a lot of fun there, and the hotel was also amazing. It was a four star property, and the food and the service was just min blowing. I got a room upgrade also so that was an added plus. Then the sightseeing was also good, but there isn’t a lot of historical places to see here, mostly just nature stuff but that doesn’t bother me. I had a lovely time and that’s what matters.

Bet u didn’t know there isn’t much to do in Maldives other than staying in ur room or just staying at the beach. There are no msuuem, art galleries or even historical places to visit, and there are just little forest trails in name of trekking. holidayMe duped us so completely. We wasted money and time here, when we could have gone to Cambodia.
