Having stayed at various luxurious resorts all over the world, I can easily say that my recent stay at Angsana Velavaru has clearly been the BEST EVER STAY !! 7-STAR LUXURY and ‘To-die-for’ picturesque!! Angsana Velavaru is a postcard property of the Banyan Tree Group. We had such a lovely family vacation, the memories of which would truly linger in our minds all our lives!! Absolutely worth the money spent! FRONT OFFICE – We were greeted by the front office team Svetlana, Amina and Nasir who were always courteous, smiling and ready to help. At a few occasions in the late night when my old parents wanted to go back to the room from the reception area and the bell boys had retired for the day, the front office guys themselves drove the buggy and took us to our rooms. What an outstanding gesture! The resort was fairly large and very organized. All the renovation work seemed completed and there was absolutely no noise anywhere. Where most islands in Maldives are man-made, we were happy to know that this is a natural island. THE ROOM AND HOUSEKEEPING – We had the 2 Beach Rooms, each having their own private pool and a huge private backyard. The rooms were spacious, well organized and extremely clean! The housekeeping team was amazing and always made our room look ‘spic and span’! Unlike other resorts where the cleaning is done only once a day, you had the option of getting your room cleaned twice daily. I felt this was really helpful considering that it’s a beach property. The rooms seemed newly renovated and had all the amenities you could ask for. Bed was super comfortable. The bath area was so huge that you need to see it to believe it! There were two showers – one in the open and one a little inside. The room layout was very interesting. You could lie on your bed and have an uninterrupted view of the pool, the beach and the turquoise sea waters! At night, it was fantastic to see the moon, stars, planets and some constellations. THE BEACH – The Beach was so good that you could lie there all day long and gaze at the white sand and clear blue waters! I have never seen the sand so ‘white’! I couldn’t help but get some along in a bottle as a souvenir of the lovely vacation. The coral reef was extremely well-maintained with abundant marine life. We saw several fishes and even some reef sharks and a stingray! We spent a lot of our time snorkelling and enjoying seeing various fishes in their natural habitat. THE BREAKFAST – The buffet breakfast is a massive spread of exotic fruits, pancakes, juices and various continental dishes. The ambience and service of the restaurant Kaani itself is so warm and inviting that you feel like just siting there for several hours. A special thanks to our waiters Hathim & Mahid who were quite caring (considering that I was accompanied with my old parents). THE LUNCH & DINNER – I highly recommend the ‘all meals inclusive package’, as it was truly high quality and value-for-money. The buffet spread is as huge as in any other 5-Star property with all courses, deserts, live counters etc. Being Indian vegetarians, we were glad to find that they had a separate menu which offered several Indian & continental vegetarian dishes to choose from. We ate the tastiest samosas ever! This extra facility was truly a boon for us! The team even celebrated my daughter’s birthday and even baked a special “mermaid’ cake for her, which she truly loved! THE ACTIVITIES – The resort prides itself to have 101 activities to choose from. The Dive Centre was well equipped and you can rent out snorkelling gear/life jackets for free. You could take courses in scuba diving at very reasonable rates. The Water Sports Centre offered free canoes and also had an array of activities to choose from. We specially loved the ‘bird feeding’ activity that takes place everyday at 10.30am and 4.30pm. They have a lovely collection of exotic parrots and you could feed them from your palm. The stingray feeding activity which also happens daily at 5pm was also very interesting. We could see huge stingrays come right up on the shore where a person from the Marine Lab fed them crabs. My daughter also enjoyed the various activities in the Kid Zone where the attendant lady was very talented and caring. They even had a Maldivian Night with dance and music, which was super fun! THE GM – This is the first time ever that I truly wish to write an elaborate piece on the General Manager of the property -Mr Mourad Essafi. I have never met any GM who is so genuine, warm and friendly as Mr Mourad. He is truly doing an amazing job managing the entire property so beautifully and professionally. Unlike other GMs who are always locked up in their cabins, Mr Mourad was everywhere greeting the guests politely and asking them if everything was ok. He was so personally involved and passionate about his work that it really felt good. A small incident truly made me wonder how down-to-earth and humble he is. I was having breakfast and needed to get my plates cleared. Mr Mourad was passing by and graciously offered to clear it up himself. I was quite surprized at this outstanding gesture which showed remarkable hospitality as well as humility. Clearly no work is small or big and its all about teamwork! Very very impressive!! We could clearly appreciate that it is expensive to maintain everything in the middle of nowhere. The staff to guest ratio is almost 1:1 and it was visible. All in all, my entire family really enjoyed the vacation and I can’t thank the team enough for their kind hospitality. We truly wish we could have stayed longer. Our hearts are still there !! WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK SOON !!
