Comments The visit to this resort was part of a another trip. I always wanted to dive the Maldives and couldn't wait to get into the water. The resort itself was beautiful, spacious, good service, good food. But I went there to dive. Others in the group, all experienced divers, went there for the same reason. While the resort was wonderful, the fish were few. We all complained, but the dive operator simply shrugged his shoulders and looked away.
