"Island Spa Retreat is Paradise "
Island Spa Retreat was beautiful in every way from the picturesque location, stunning fish filled reefs with resident turtles to the local Maldivian culture and food. From sunrise to sunset this island just kept on surpassing my expectations and the yoga was blissful and fun at the same time. Leteefah and her beautiful New Jersey girls are now friends for life and Kate was definitely the hostess with the mostest - a huge heart and beautiful soul. The dive staff were so much fun and the team at Madi Finolhu were all divine. I came away revitalised and relaxed and full of love and happiness.Cant wait until next time.

"GOOD VIBES GALORE!"
The retreat was an incredible time filled with the perfect combination of serenity and laughter. The environment was beautiful --truly a paradise! It was cool getting to see the local people and experience the simple life. We went on boat rides to explore neighboring islands as well as snorkel sites around the area. The accommodations were lovely (especially the private outdoor shower!) and the food was delicious (each meal began with a different type of fruit juice!). The yoga and meditation were rejuvenating and restoring. Kate was the perfect host; she made certain we were happy and had everything we needed. She even made sure I could get some scuba diving in. The guys at Maldivers were awesome as well. They took care of me and were able to help me squeeze in 5 dives in 3 days! I would recommend Island Spa Retreats to anyone and everyone.

"My yoga retreat in Maalhos"
Kate was a fantastic yoga instructor and host. She made me feel welcome and made sure I knew exactly where I needed to be and when. The sunrise/sunset yoga sessions were great and I loved that I felt myself improve as the week went on.
The snorkelling was also great and we saw lots of turtles, as well as many beautiful fish and eels.
The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable.
They took many photos and videos which they then sent me so I have them as my memories.
The guesthouse was kept very clean and the food was great - I loved the Maldivian food.
I really enjoyed the tour around the island and seeing the local culture, including the local women making the roof, the traditional houses, and seeing how the families were fishing for tuna from the beach.
