Value for money !!Overall a well maintained property, the water villas are the best, followed by the beach facing ones. Rooms are okay, but ask for fresh linen everyday...Overall a well maintained property, the water villas are the best, followed by the beach facing ones. Rooms are okay, but ask for fresh linen everyday. Their restaurant serves buffet, so go for it.Read full review
Take their option of buffet breakfast,lunch and dinner, coz there are no other restaurants on the property thats decent to even peep into.. You'd just end up spending more money too if you opt for breakfast after you land and their room service is quite sad. You could end up having lunch, waiting for breakfast ! Buffet is the best option and make sure you fight for a good table, or they might just shove you into a corner and say you've been allotted that table and stuff like that. So a lil argument could land you a good table !
Some of the water activities, dinging, etc will keep you occupied. We visited Male,boring trip, unless you have some visa issue to sort out, coz all the embassies are there. Otherwise just enjoy your time on the resort !!
We'll Be Back!Travelled from Bangkok with three young children (5y7m, 3y7m, 1y11m). Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Dinner Buffet, Lunch buffet etc were okay. Limited indian food varieties and less spicy. Timings for buffet is very limited. Every group is given table reservation and rest of the stay will be sitting in same table. I think this option is good for both travelers and resort. Buffet place looks bit crowded and other place in Island looks good. Some places of Island we could hear the spead boat noise some times. Otherwise whole island looks calm. Really loved the crystal clear water. I went for scooba diving first time and really loved first experience of scooba diving. Next day myslef tried snorkling and really loved watching colorful fishes near bridge close to Diving center. We stayed 3N/4d really enjoyed throughout stay. We stayed in resort from 7th Sep 2012 to 10 Sep 2012. In Maldives, sometimes wheather suddenly changes and they have provided umbrellas in each room. I enquired about reservation for next visit. They told us that going through some Travle agents works cheaper deal package.

Every day of my our holiday was so relaxing....so beautiful :). Co operative and friendly staff, excellent services at the restaurant :) Also, on my husband request one of the staff member decorated our bedroom to give me an amazing surprise. I am thankful to the resort for adding up to our romantic and beautiful memories. The resort is perfect for couples as you get complete privacy even when you are on the beach and around. Spa experience was excellent, masseurs were friendly and polite. Never wanted that holiday to end, definitely would like visit again :)Read full review

The representative of Paridise Island Resort met us in the modern,of high standarts airport and it took us 15 min. to get to our place of destination. Sparkling white beach,azure crystal-clear sea with exotic marine life and tall palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze cought our eyes when we arrived at our resort.
It was such an experience to sleep in a beach bungalow with the sound of the sea just next to you!Our beach bungalow ( №149) was comfortable and nice!Mini-bar,tea and coffee-making facilities,safe,air-conditioning as well as twice daily cleaning were available in bungalow.The bathroom was rather spacious!There was also an open-air shower and a private terrace in each beach bungalow.We enjoyed much sitting on the terrace,drinking cocktails admiring splendid sunsets!
Breakfast (7.30-9.30),lunch (12.30.-14.00) and dinner (19.30.-21.00) were served in the Main Restaurant.The restaurant offered a wide range of Continental,Indian,Maldivian and Chinese dishes.We liked to taste local tropical fruits,juices and cakes!Also it was very convenient that we had our private table in the Main Restaurant,and the waiters were very attentive and kind there!
We were half-board guests (breakfast-dinner) so we usually went to have lunch to Italian Restaurant -La Tramonto-.This restaurant was located on stilts over the reef.Soups,salads,pastas,spaghetti and of course pizzas were so toothsome there!
A great taste of Italian cuisine in the amazing Maldives! Luxurious -Dolphin Restaurant- served great variety of sea-food.Mixed grill sea-food was very tasty!Dolphin Restaurant had open-air terrace where we could admire the breathtaking views of the ocean and sunsets!It's truly the place for romantic moments under the stars!And the stars at night are so bright in the Maldives!
Italian restaurant -Al Tramonto- and the Main Bar also gave the guests of the Paradise Island a chance to watch both the sunrises and sunsets! With the fall of the evening the Main Bar transformed into a chic place with lounge music,live music and wide range of exotic cocktails!-Island Affair-was my favourite one!
The performances of live music band ''White Smoke'' gave us a real pleasure and evoked lots of emotions! DJ nights,movie shows,crab races were also entertainments which took place in the Main Bar in the evenings! One night we had much fun watching on the football pitch -Paridise Achievers Awards-(Celebration night)- annual staff event of the resort.Dances and performances of the locals were very interesting!It was a magic show! There were plenty of activities on offer such as water sports,diving,fishing snorkelling,table tennis on the island.But most of all I enjoyed -Araamu Spa-! -Papaya body Peel-(45 $),- Fruit Lavender Wrap- (72 $) and - Well being massage- (85 $ -50 min.) were just marvellous! -Araamu Spa really soothed and renewed my body and soul!In one of the days -Araamu Spa- offered to the guests of the island 25% discount for all treatments and therapies.And that was great!
Paradise Island Resort and Spa offered a wide ranging program of excursions.We chose -Male Sightseeing-,- Island Hopping- and -Sunset cocktails on the High Sea - excursions.
Male Excursion ( 50 $ per person - 9-12.30) was very interesting and knowledgeable.We saw Male's most famous landmarks: Friday Mosque,President's Official Residence,Sultan Park and National Museum and many other.We also visited fish market and garden market.Local mangoes, coconuts,and coconut chocolate were very tasty!You should certainly bargain in Souvenirs Shops.If you have a good knowledge of English,sociable,friendly and easy-going person they will give you a good discount there!There was a great variety of lovely accessories made of pink,black and white pearls,corrals and turquoise! Island Hopping Excursion (80 $ per person-full day) gave us opportunity to visit - Bandos Resort -,one fishing village and a picnic island in one day.We had great BBQ lunch on a picnic Island Resort. It was so much fun to play volleyball with Maldivian and Indian guys,to laze in the sun and to swim in a warm sea on a picnic island!That was one of the best days ever! We were greatly impressed by - Sunset Cocktail on the High Sea - (34 $ -17.15-18.15) We enjoyed our one hour ride on a Dhoni relaxing ,sipping away our drinks,watching a beautiful tropical sunset and escort of dolphins! We certainly recommend you these wonderful excursions!
Also we liked feeding tropical fishes from water bridge at our resort! There were Electronic shop,Jewerly shop and Souvenir shop on the island.The souvenirs in Souvenir shop were cheaper than in Male's shops.But all prices on the island were subjected to service charge-10 % and guest tax-3,5 %! We recommend you to take a parasol with you.You will need it when you go on excursions,and any other day as the sun can be very agressive there!Also,don't forget to take anti mosquitos repellent.
The Sun,the Ocean,the Sea!Friendliness and hospitality of the people, and service of professional staff at Paradise Island Resort and Spa...everything was perfect!We enjoyed our holidays in the Maldives so much!It was a breathtaking,unforgettable and romantic experience for us!No greater place to relax and revitalize your soul than Maldives!
I miss Maldives and those wonderful holidays so much now and I really would love to come back at Paradise Island Resort and Spa once!
