My family and I spent 10 nights at the resort in December 2020 as part of a three week vacation in the Maldives. SAii Lagoon is a relatively new resort and neighbour to the Hard Rock Resort in the Crossroads development.

Of the three resorts we visited, the others being The Standard (terrible) and Sun Siyam Iru Veli (very good albeit with the some food issues), SAii Lagoon was the standout resort.

Great rooms - we had two beach villas right on the beautiful beach; excellent food options with many restaurants scattered across the resort; wonderful snorkelling on the house reef and a superb dive centre, where my children developed their snorkelling skills under Jerry's tutelage.

The quality of service across the board is exceptional. Talhath and Afa in the front office are exceptionally helpful, the general manager Patrick, is very present and on the ball, the chefs at breakfast deserve a special mention for their friendly demeanour and great egg dishes and dosas.

The spa in the Crossroads complex is noteworthy for high quality treatments at sensible prices. And, we enjoyed cycling around the resort on the shared bikes scattered across the island.

Guests at the two resorts are able to use the facilities at the other. The Hard Rock pool is lively but does resemble a Love Island set. Breakfast at Hard Rock provided a welcome change, but after a couple of days we found ourselves reverting to the warm welcome at the SAii Lagoon breakfast.

The main negative of the stay was the uniformly poor attitude of the staff at the Hard Rock property. Even their transportation buggy drivers were incredibly rude and unhelpful. I mentioned this to the SAii Lagoon GM and it transpires that this has been a recurrent observation among his guests, but the Hard Rock is managed separately and little can seemingly be done.

The resort is accessible by boat from Male but is far enough away. In fact, from the SAii Lagoon resort, Male is not visible at all, but the Hard Rock villas do face the main island.

Overall, I highly recommend this resort, especially for families looking for a resort with a large number of dining and activity options.

Such a beautiful place with amazing connectivity and staff. The service is 5 stars and the staff is simply incredible good, specially Ronak and Shann with whom we interacted the most. Amazing hospitality with the mind-blowing view. Highly recommended place in the Maldives anytime!! :)

Room tip: take the adjoining rooms if travelling with family. They have few available.

Hello Garvit2112,

You made us all very excited with the title of your review. I am so glad to have lived up to your expectations. There is a bunch of beautiful resorts around the world but I always believe that it's the people that makes the ambience a whole lot different and here in SAii, you will come as a guest but will leave as a family. Your commendation for our SAiiLanders will definitely be shared, particularly to Shaan and Ronak.

Thank you very much for your recommendation for us. It is very much appreciated.

Will be waiting for you here in your home away from home.

Until then. Wishing you and your family all the best.

Stay safe!

Our 4th trip to the Maldives and I can say this was the best!
1 week was not enough in the beautiful property.
Patrick and his team are absolutely outstanding.
Right from Raam and his team at the pool bar,
To Arres, Glen and all the servers at breakfast.
Each and everyone made our stay so special, always ready to help with a smile.
Thank you and you’ll be seeing us back soon!

one of the best holidays especially in covid times

We stayed for 5 nights at the Sky room and had breakfast included. The rooms were luxurious & huge and right on the beach (just the first floor). I actually liked it better as we had a great view and some more privacy v/s being on the ground floor. Guess the kids would have spent more time in the sand if we were at the beach level.

Buggy service on app made it very convenient.

Have to mention Ram & team at the pool bar where we hanged each evening for a swim and drinks.
Also, great kids club that my kids even spent the last few minutes before checkout there. Suji from kids club was great.
Prabhu, who made delicious South Indian food making it easier for vegetarians.

hard rock pool was great too.
paddle boat and kayaking was free
dessert and nachos at hard rock cafe were good

would book it without a thought again.

possible improvement - limited sea life or snorkel options off the beach. the saii lagoon team was not aware about the little coral life at the center of the lagoon under the white bouy. The hard rock reception team told us about this. Also, you can see hundreds of big and small fishes including rays and small sharks on the bridge connecting saii & hard rock after lights are on. (again got to know this from tripadvisor on hard rock reviews)
have some "sandy" entrances or bridge entrances into the water. with a lot of sea shells and pebbles and stones, it can get tricky if you don't have sea / snorkel shoes.

Hello Travelfreak5,

Thank you for the time you spent to write the lovely review for us. I sincerely appreciate your appraisals and the overall wonderful comments. In regards to your comments about the marine life, it is true that we do not have much corals around the island yet, however, I am pleased to inform you that we have a coral propagation programme here on the island that we believe will soon lead to restoration of the coral around our resort and also we are conducting beach clean-up drive in order to eliminate the coral debris and stones that are being washed in by the natural ocean waves.

Once again, thank you very much for sharing your feedback.

We are looking forward to welcome you again in here in our little paradise in the near future,

In the meantime, stay safe and we wish you all the best.
