Hotel's Favorite
We just came back from our holiday and already miss the leisure days in the Indian ocean. As “Maldives addicted” we have stayed in so many hotels since 2005 that we just stopped counting at some point. I don’t write a review every time but this time it’s a must. First of all, I want to say a big thank you to the GM Mr Srikanth Devarapalli, a very kind man and true professional! Thanks to him we had the chance to visit this beautiful island and to experience one of our greatest holidays. What makes the resort so special: 1. All the island is with such a lush greenery, it’s like a jungle. At the moment you arrive you are captured by its beauty. 2. Fantastic house coral reef. It starts from the main restaurant and you can enjoy right up to the end of the water villas. Full of fishes, sharks, two times we saw a turtle and lobsters hiding under a big coral. Exceptional! 3. Restaurants! Every day different options but still we were every day having lunch in our favourite Beach grill! You have the shadow in the sunny days but in the evening all tables are out on the sand for a dinner under the stars/palms :) There are two restaurants which are nestled in the “jungle”, surrounded by bushes and trees - Le Asiatique and Amazonico. In the Asian we witnessed a great show at the Teppanyaki- the cook was juggling with a raw egg, then threw it into his hat and pulled out a chicken instead. The kids were watching with their mouths open all the time. The South American restaurant is Amazonico, delicious food accompanied by the sounds of latin music and guitars. I have to say that everywhere we had so so delicious meals, very beautifully arranged. Nearly most of the evenings there were organised special private dinners on the beach. The preparation starts from the afternoon when the staff are carving the shapes of mantas or hearts in the sand, then light them up and it looks really majestic in the night. The cinema under the stars was also booked almost every night. A big sofa bed is moved on the beach and the screen is put in front so only the ocean is behind. They also organise once per week a Gala dinner at the main restaurant. We were very surprised as trust me not in every hotel they put so much efforts. All the tables from the restaurant were put outside on the beach, decorated, there was a live music too, kids running around, it felt like a New Year’s Eve party. Grill stations were also settled and there was a big choice of fish and meats and whatever you may wish. 4. We had an outstanding accommodation. The villas are large, comfortable, always clean. The designers have made a very clever decision about the roofs of the houses, also there are flowers on the walls even of the water villas. We enjoyed so much riding on the bicycle around. 5.The Spa is absolutely fantastic. All massage rooms are actually very exotic cabanas with names of flowers, I even had the feeling that I am somewhere in Malaysia... 6. Kids club fortunately is open all day, no closures at all. They were full with activities. Our younger child was so happy every time I took him there. The kids enjoyed movies with popcorn, making bracelets, feeding the fish on the jetty, making cocktails and pizzas and so many other games. 7. Something that impressed me very much was the hotel application on the phone. Once on your phone, you can actually do everything from here - book and cancel reservations, view the menus of the restaurants ( even the kids menus are different ) , get all the info you need. I remember something similar, this high quality, on brand new cruise ship two years ago, so much things, so easy to work with. I look at my review now and I understand it is probably the longest “speechless” opinion but I really wanted to share all this stuff. I highly recommend this property because it is new, modern, with a very good management in all departments, great food, rich wine and drinks selection. All in all the hotel combines everything that I have ever seen in the other hotels, they didn’t miss anything. Before I finish I would like to thank the people who took a good care after us- Latheef, KD, Borhan and our butler Dave. We were very happy to meet the head sommelier Nash and his team from Zimbabwe, such nice people. All waiters in the Grill were perfect too. Thank you and can’t wait to come back!

My husband and I celebrated our tenth anniversary here. We took a bit of a risk because we were not familiar with the brand of property. Emerald did not disappoint. We selected the upgraded villa and it was an exceptional experience. Breathtaking views and the best part was the private pool and ocean access. Our room was cleaned twice a day. The services provided from staff was warm and engaging. We felt safe and had no concerns about COVID. The properties are new and everything is completely modern and updated. The food and drink menu was diverse and enjoyable. The resort planned events for the quest. One of my favorites was wine tasting on beachside. Listed below are a list of people who provided exceptional service during our stay. I am not one to write this much detail in a review but I wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation. This resort is truly amazing. Areej went the extra mile to ensure that our needs were met. He provided fantastic recommendations for food and drinks. Areej's outgoing personality made me feel like home away from home. Brian, sommelier wine expert, was an added bonus to the resort experience. His wine expertise was exceptional. My husband and I enjoyed every wine recommended. His service was fantastic. Dave - "Dave oh Dave!!" Words can't fully capture how valuable his service was to our experience. He was funny, warm, and very attentive to our needs and desires. His attention to detail was the best I have experienced in a very long time. He went the extra mile without hesitation. Richie was fantastic! Every meal, he ensured that we were satisfied and happy. He was a joy to engage and always greeted us with a smile. Samah provided excellent service during our intimate dinner for two. He served us 5 star style. We appreciate his professionalism and attention to detail. The spa treatment was phenomenal. My husband and I were blown away by the treatment. OMG! Highly recommend!!

We went there in first week of March 2021 and spent 5 nights and six days three of us with our 8 year old daughter. We have been to Maldives before and this time we selected Emerald after a lot of research amongst the luxury resorts of similar kind and we are glad that it was worth it. we stayed in water villas with pool as well as beach villas with pool . An excellent resort with great service. The all inclusive package seriously enhances the experience. Srikanth and his staff are great. Our special thanks to mr Rao from front office who made special efforts to make the holiday even more special for us. Really nice and welcoming staff everywhere. the property is great and quite new. the size of both the ocean villas as well beach villas is good. The restaurants are very nice. The sea life under the water villas is bit depleted ... don't expect to see fishes as you go down into water from your pool villas. but there are areas on the resort where u can snorkel and see some corals and fishes. Our daughter Amayra had a great time and wanted to write her own review. Review as written by her " I had an amazing time. The Infinity pool was very good and the ocean slightly away from the water villas was awesome for snorkeling. . Food was great, especially in Aqua. But the underwater view near the water villas was not so good. I want to go there again. " -Amayra
