Overall this would be a $1800+ weekend getaway. The review by arpiuk here made it sound like some rough edges on the staff... I wonder if anyone has seen any other reviews out there about the service, since at this rate I expect it to be very polished.
Just in case you dont already know, its now raining season in the Maldives. It would be quite a gamble paying for the flight to Male & seaplane transfer to the island, and risk not seeing much sun during the short stay.
