  1. Kateryna / September 22, 2018

    Трансфер из международного аэропорта Velena к отелю Amaya Kuda Rah доступен на внутренних авиалиниях + лодка, общее время которого не занимает и часа. Гостей приветствуют на ресепшн, где и проходит процедура заселения и регистрации. Все номера и общественные зоны в отеле были реновированы осенью 2017 года, так что отличить его от нового курорта практически невозможно, зато тропическая растительность уже сформирована. Всего в отеле Amaya 4 категории номеров: Beach Suite, Beach Villa, Water Villa, Family Duplex Beach Villa. Последняя как раз идеально подойдет для семей, которые хотят быть вместе в 1 вилле но иметь разные спальни. Абсолютно все виллы имеют личный бассейн, что является огромным преимуществом, ведь даже ночью можно плавать у себя на вилле и смотреть на звезды. Хотя сам остров небольшой – гостям предлагают велосипеды бесплатно – черные для мужчин, белые для женщин и даже есть маленькие трехколесные велосипеды для детей. Кстати в отеле есть прекрасный детский клуб и комната с настольными играми, пляжный воллейбол и пр. развлечения. Есть таже дайвинг клуб SCUBA SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL. Одним из главных преимуществ отеля Amaya Kuda Rah является кухня. Как и в главном ресторане так и в a la carte качество блюд на высшем уровне. Отель старается угодить всем гостям своим разнообразием, так что вы легко найдете блюда по вкусу: тут и средиземноморская кухня и азиатская и традиционная мальдивская. Что касается рифа – он находится вокруг острова за каменным барьером, который защищает остров от сильных течений. Тут можно встретить множество ярких рыб, детенышей акул (не опасны) и других морских обитателей, только снорклинг очень сильно будет зависеть от погодных условий. На острове даже есть диско клуб, где по субботам проводятся шумные вечерники. Но это абсолютно не потревожит никого, так как клуб находится в закрытом, звуконепроницаемом помещении с кондиционером. А в остальном это замечательное тихое место с отличной едой, красивыми номерами, приятным сервисом на красивом острове.

    Transfer from the international airport Velena to the hotel Amaya Kuda Rah is available on domestic flight + speed boat, the total time which does not take an hour. Guests are welcomed at the reception where the check-in and check-out procedure is taking place. All rooms and public areas in the hotel were renovated in the fall of 2017, so it is almost impossible to distinguish it from the new resort, but the tropical vegetation has already been formed. In total, the Amaya hotel has 4 categories of rooms: Beach Suite, Beach Villa, Water Villa, Family Duplex Beach Villa. The Family Duplex is ideal for families who want to be together in one villa but have different bedrooms. Absolutely all villas have a private pool, which is a huge advantage, because even at night you can swim in your villa and look at the stars. Although the island itself is small – hotel offers bicycles for free – black for men, white for women and even have small tricycles for children. By the way, the hotel has a wonderful children’s club and a room with board games, beach volleyball and other entertainment. There is also a diving club SCUBA SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL. One of the main advantages of Amaya Kuda Rah is the kitchen. As in the main restaurant and in a la carte, the quality of the dishes is at the highest level. The hotel tries to please all its guests with its variety, so you can easily find dishes to taste: here and Mediterranean cuisine and Asian and traditional Maldivian. As for the reef, it is located around the island behind a stone barrier that protects the island from strong currents. Here you can meet a lot of bright fish, baby sharks (not dangerous) and other marine life, only snorkeling will depend very much on weather conditions. There is even a disco club on the island, where noisy evening parties are held on Saturdays. But it absolutely does not disturb anybody, since the club is in a closed, soundproof room with air conditioning. In general Amaya Kuda Rah is a wonderful quiet place with excellent food, beautiful rooms, pleasant service on a beautiful island.

    Amaya Resort is an island located in South Ari Atoll that you could reach via 15 – 20 minutes domestic flight / seaplane + 15 – 20 minutes speedboat. One of their advantages is even their base category room has a private pool. Rooms are spacious and design is chic and fresh as there are touches of color pink and orange. Appropriate for families that has children as they have separate room for their privacy. The island is peaceful and quiet. Their guest nationalities are diverse and that only show that it can cater to any type of people. They have 2 restaurants on the island, one is buffet and one is ala-carte. The food is exquisite. They have free bikes on the island that guest can use. Snorkeling gear is with a fee except for all inclusive guests / water villa guests. As South Ari Atoll is one of the best locations for diving, it makes Amaya a dream island for divers as well.
