Deborah Robbins
Great food, and excellent service on of the most beautiful islands in the Indian Ocean. Since the property is larger than most, it has several restaurant options. (I don't think I would like to spend a week or more with only 2-3 restaurant options)

Shines
Cafe Coconut Divine is so delicious. I recommend it! But Kimchi is a traditional Korean food. Korean kimchi is introduced as Chinese. I am so disappointed. I hope that these errors will be corrected in places where people from many countries visit. Other than that, the natural scenery is very nice.

Akash Dhabe
Fantastic location. Rooms were clean, food was tasty and chiefs were awesome. The service was a hit or miss. Great service was provided by Ahmed at Water villa, Anfaal at romatic pool villa, Zeid at Beach Rougue, Muaaviz and Nisaaka @ East Market Poor service/response from many staff members such as Saeed at Beach Rougue, Aahmed at Lagoon Pool Bar, Inaan at the reception. The bad service experience ruined the experience somewhat after spending so much on an all inclusive package.

Dalitso Mwandumba
Couldn't rate this place highly enough. As well as the island being beautiful, the variety of amazing restaurants and the brilliant accommodation, it's biggest asset is the staff. They are all pleasant, incredibly helpful, and take the time to know your name so that your interactions with them are each day are personal. I'd literally name all of the if I hadn't forgotten a lot of their names, but shout out to Rimaah and Vijay at MIXE who always made us feel welcome, and also to Zobair at Beach Rouge. We hope to return again in the future 🤞

Anita Bulusu
This is a beautiful island with lovely rooms and service and just enough variety of restaurants, services and activities for everyone. Doesn't feel crowded anywhere and the personal service enables you to feel completely independent and as isolated as you like. We had a fabulous time. We preferred the standard water villas at the far end of the island as they're quiet and have beautiful views and you see marine life swimming around. Beach is still extremely close. The buses that run around these island mean the distances aren't really an issue. The beach villas have beach on the doorstep but the sea is quite far away and the view isn't expansive due to the foliage, which provides privacy and shade. Also look at the room layout carefully - we preferred the fully indoor attached bathroom in the water villas. Note not all restaurants are included in the inclusive meal plans. We went for breakfast only then had the freedom to eat anywhere anytime, which worked well for us. Breakfast is extensive and excellent in both restaurants. No reef snorkelling available off the beach but there are daily hour long trips to the house reef and free snorkelling equipment all day. A lot of it is bleached sadly but don't miss the small area of coral that the resident marine biologist is growing next to the main jetty, which is beautiful, but no one tells you is there. Confusingly there are excursions run by the dive centre as well as those run by the resort so get information about both before choosing and booking. We loved the marine biologist whale shark trip by dhoni boat not run by the dive centre. Best reason to come to South Ari Atoll. Great multi generational holiday.
