Double booking

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Booked my trip over a month ago to get a sunset Villa, and avoid the holidays price hype. Only to be informed 4 days before my trip that the villa is not ready for an unfortunate even. Well I am currently at the hotel, and the Villas are all occupied. I was compensated by dinners, but when you can afford paying this price, waving the dinner wasn’t gonna effect my budget.... Only decided to come, cause I had no options. The staff and the services are rated 5/5; however the management I would give them a BIG ZERO for the way they handled it... The client is a number, and the way I was treated it was like take it or leave it. We will fill it anyway....

Heaven on Earth

Our stay at Jumeirah Vittaveli was nothing short of magical. From the moment we arrived to the time we departed we were met with smiling and friendly staff, incredible cuisine (Fenesse was our favorite), and breathtaking scenery. Marouf, Fabricio, Bikram, Elza, our host Natalie and the rest of the Jumeirah team were wonderful and tended to our every want. We were disappointed to learn the day before we arrived that the sunset overwater villa we had reserved was undergoing construction. However, they did everything they could to accommodate us and put us in a newly renovated sunrise overwater villa and gave us a comped dinner and a generous credit we were able to use at the spa for a couple’s chakra experience that was heavenly. Specialty drinks (like piña coladas, rum runners, etc) are expensive ($20 USD) but vodka sodas or whisky neat were the same they are in the states ($11 USD), and champagne is definitely a luxury ($180/bottle) so plan accordingly. Since Male is a Muslim country, you cannot bring any champagne or other alcohol with you or they will confiscate it at the airport. We did the half board meal plan and found it to be enough for us. The breakfast buffet has ample choices and something for everyone. We also brought a lot of snacks (almonds, etc.) that we ate while hanging at our villa and after snorkeling. The snorkeling outside our villa was incredible. So many fish and even a few black tip reef sharks (harmless). We never felt unsafe. The bikes they have at each villa were perfect to get us around the island, but if we needed a buggy they were there at a moment’s notice. I did a lot of research prior to booking our honeymoon, and landed on Jumeirah after a client recommended it. He said they have done the Four Seasons and others in the Maldives and they come back to Jumeirah every year b/c it is the best of everything. After our stay I would certainly agree. I have never been more disconnected from the hustle and bustle of every day life. It was simply a dream.
