Wow! A stunning place! We arrived at our island by speed boat transfer from the airport jetty. They even let Mark drive the speedboat most of the way (slightly scary). A fabulous place and even better we was met by my cousin and her hubby waiting for us at the bar with lots of bubbly. It's lovely to spend time with family and we spent most of the first afternoon and evening ...
... I guess I need to learn and there are hammocks all over the resort calling for you to come and relax in them. We stopped at the dive center for info; Colin obviously can't go, but I might sign up for a dive or two. We have massages booked tomorrow morning and are just looking forward to another nice, relaxing week in paradise! I finished the new Bridget Jones book yesterday; wonder if Robinson Crusoe's adventures will be half as much fun as hers?! Ha! More ...

A quick ferry takes you from the airport to the capital city of Male (ma-lay). Male is small and filled with concrete, scooters, cars, fishing boats and people. I had to spend my arrival day there because ferrys don't run on Fridays - holy day. The Maldives is a Muslim country; this means that many businesses are not open on Friday and no alcohol anyday. I spent the day wandering empty streets, watching a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Angsana Ihuru, Maldives
Well we've just got back from a wonderful week at Angsana Ihuru in the Maldives and what a great week it was. We arrived in Male at about lunch time and got straight on the speedboat transfer which was a private boat owned by the hotel. It only took 25 minutes to get to the island which was lovely.
I want to stay forever
This is the greatest resort in the world. When you arrive they took a polaroid of my wife and myself and just talked with us about what we like to eat, drink and do. The next morning it seems everyone on the island knew our names and everything about us. The staff do so much to look after us. They can cook whatever you like, arrange trips you like .... i don't know where to stop. The rooms are clean and comfortable, you have your own area of pristine beach and you could snorkel round the whole island in about an hour. The island also has a wondeful spa that you could while away the hours in. In summary this place is amazing and there are no negatives whatsoever. p.s. if you get a chance go on the sandbank trip do so it's as close to paradise as possible...
The only reason i am not givin this hotel a 5 star rating is because we combined our holiday with a stay at their sister hotel- banyan tree and that was on another level of luxury compared to the angsana.
Thsi is a 4-star resort (at the most) that charges 5-star prices. Rooms are quite tiny, full of insects (beyond tolerability), food is really average. They say all rooms are beachfront. Well, if you are facing a thin strip of sand (1-2 feet wide), do you call it a beach? I surely don't. Service - give me a break. We arrived at midnight after 20+ hours of travel, and the German hostess wanted to take our picture "for their hotel book". Was she crazy?
The rooms are so close together you can hear people talk in the unit next to yours.
I have been to 3 resorts in Maldives , and here is my verdict: stay at Cocoa island!
My fiancé and I stayed at the Angsana for one week last August, and we absolutely loved it.
We spent our honeymoon at Angsana in September 2004. We felt instantly relaxed when we were greeted with fresh lemongrass towels (the first of many) off the boat jetty. The island was beautiful and intimate, the rooms elegant and calming, the spa excellent, the food good with nice variety and dining area/bar lovely, and the snorkeling (right outside your door) and diving superb. All in all a wonderful, rejeuvenating experience and we hope to go back to celebrate an anniversary someday. The resort also does a lot to protect the reef and local environment and seems to take good care of their staff (they offered us a tour of the back quarters and facilities) which is nice. The only thing I would say is the outdoor bathrooms can get very slippery so wear the slippers they give you - I took a not so fun little tumble on the floor one day. Loved the Angsana, would highly recommend it, well worth the price.
We have just spent our 30th wedding anniversary at this idyllic and perfect resort.
We received excellent, cheerful and professional service at all times. Our jacuzzi villa was immaculate and well equipped and very private.
The food was exceptional, varied and delicious at every meal, as were the cocktails.
The excellent spa treatments were most relaxing and a lovely diversion from the hot sun, pure white beach and water sports.
We cannot find a single negative comment to make and cannot wait to visit again. Paradise!
Best place to relax
The hotel is situated on an island which possibly has the best beach in the world. Its beauty is beyond description. The food and service are excellent. The spa treatemet is superb and worthy of the price. We stayed at the villa with its own Jacuzzi and we can just walk out to the beach directly from our room. What an experience! In addition to a variety of leisure activities (inlcuding a trip to the Banyan Tree Resort in a nearby island by a free water shuttle), the best thing to do on the island is to relax as the place is probably one of the best places to relax in the world.
We spent 6 wonderful days here. The food was great, the service was impeccable and it was the most beautiful place we've ever seen. And as far as the Maldives goes, considering that all meals are included, we found Angsana to be a very good value. We can't wait to go back!
This resort was incredible. We spent 10 days snorkeling amongst the most amazing underwater wonders. The food was fabulous -soups, salads, fish, just like restaurant hopping in NY. We napped in the shade, listening to jazz. We were looking to unwind and this is the place. Pricey but worth it. I hope to go back to this HEAVEN...soon!!!
