Can’t Wait to Return!

My spouse and I had an AMAZING experience at South Palm Resort, Maldives. From the moment we landed in Malé we experienced top notch hospitality. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a transfer clerk. He brought us over to the domestic travel side and checked us in to our flight. From there, we were escorted to a lounge to await our flight (which luckily was only an hour wait for us!). After the 1.5hr flight, we arrived in Gan and again were greeted by a second transfer clerk who carted us a mere 2min drive to the transit boat. It took about 15min to arrive to the island.

Once arrived, our assigned butler, Santos, took the reins. He assisted us with EVERYTHING throughout our trip, from check-in/check-out, spa reservations, room service orders, excursion bookings and more. He passed along his WhatsApp contact information at the beginning of our stay, was very attentive to our needs and always had a smile on his face! 10/10 best butler ever!!

Throughout your stay, you’ll sit at the same table during your meals. This allows you to grow a rapport with your meal attendant. We had the pleasure of being seated in Muhammad’s section. Every time we walked into the buffet area, Muhammad greeted us, he had our water already poured by the time we made it to our table, and made sure to check in frequently throughout our meals. On the days we missed breakfast, he would tell us he looked for us lol! The entire dinning staff were extremely friendly and appeared happy to help you with anything you needed.

Please know, the South Palm resort is for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of tourist filled beach locations. If you’re looking for a destination that’s going to keep you entertained every night, this might not be the place for you. However, if you need a place to truly relax, decompress from mundane life, and detach yourself from your work phone/computer, I guarantee you, THIS is the place to go. The water’s beautiful, the people are some of the nicest I’ve ever met, and the rooms are spacious and clean. You won’t be disappointed, and I hope to be able to visit again in the future!!

Beautiful, relaxing trip with outstanding staff.

We were welcomed off the speedboat by SIBI our Butler. He gave outstanding service and was always around when we needed him; he is absolutely incredible at his job and is a credit to South Palm Resort. The Water Villa was spotless and the cleaners work so hard and did a really great job.

NAS was our waiter for the duration of our trip. He was another, who was great at his job; always smiling, chatting and very attentive.

To be fair on every staff member there, every single person we encountered were amazing. The best staff at any resort we’ve stayed at. They are a credit. Especially the buggy drivers. BANDARA and ALI. The food was very varied, super fresh and incredibly tasty.

The dolphin trip was a must do.

The best night we had was the crab racing.

The resort was absolute paradise, very quiet in the day, which for us enhanced our experience as it was so peaceful, however something to note if you like atmosphere.

We miss it already! Thank you so much!

There are a lot of places with better value.

The rooms were very nice and the room attendants were very detailed and aimed to please. The over water villas had great snorkeling right off your room. And we got to stay in the beach from villas as well where there was also a a sea turtle that fed daily right out front. We did the all inclusive package that included the free snorkeling package. It was great having access to the snorkeling gear. The free snorkeling trip was perfect amount of time. The kayaks were great but for a resort that was so new most of the free equipment was not operational and/or was in very rough shape. The food…where to begin? There was a lot of variety however the quality was not very good and we left hungry most meals because the food was awful. I would strongly suggest upgrading to the seafood meals each evening. Those meals were incredible and inexpensive. The dining room as you will read in many reviews it is hot. Hot it was. You will sweat and it will be hard to eat because it is so warm that you just want to get out of the heat. If your are in the back area like we were there is no breeze at all. Like I said we upgraded to the all inclusive so beverages were included. It is very limited and the drinks are watered down. For example the Southern Comfort is clear. You are not allowed to leave the designated are with a drink. There are so many drinking rules and limitation. It is beyond frustrating. We saw employees be reprimanded all the time. Lastly, we went on a shark excursion to swim with the sharks. They go out to feed them multiple times a day regardless if there is a tour or not. We got out there and they told us the water wasn’t clear enough. We could see down super far. We feel like it was misleading. Maybe not? We will never know. It was still a cool experience going out watching them feed the sharks but before we went out there they gave us 15 minutes talk about not being able to snorkel with them if the water wasn’t clear enough. We would love to know if past vacationers got to snorkel with the sharks. For travels that have been to several all inclusive resorts this was our worst experience. I give it a 2 because we flew 24 hours and it was my first experience over the water. I loved the snorkeling right outside of our place.
