    Loved everything on the island and the resort! From the time we were picked up at the Dharavandhoo airport to the ferry to the island, it was all very smooth. Check-in was effortless as well. Our beach villa was excellent! Special mention to a few staff members - rashel for being a very cordial and fun pool bartender, Milinda for being a good table server, Mahindra for making special Indian dishes on our request and Shamveel who took fabulous, memorable pictures of us. The property is immaculately maintained and overall the staff is very very courteous. Cant wait to go back next year! Even the departure from the island was smoothly managed. Only suggestion would be to offer the full/half board service at their other restaurants as well. We were there for 5 days and kind of got bored eating at the same restaurant. There should be an option to use the package at other restaurants too.

The beach villa was lovely with an outdoor shower and of course access to our own sun beds on the white sandy beach The food was fantastic and the service very good the staff were very friendly and professional. The spa is a must do it is the best we have ever been to. The lagoon is stunning teaming with sea life a snorkelers dream and the scuba diving was fantastic. I would recommend the Royal island to anyone.

    Really nice service - very kind and attentive, with personal touch, when we were celebrating my Birthday. Very seclude - all the time we had the impression, that we are alone on the beach. The bungalows are cleaned 2 times per day and are decorated in typical Maldivian style.There is plenty space between the bungalows and everybody have the necessary privacy. Very good sport facilities - we have tried almost everything - tennis, squash, badminton, jet ski and scuba diving - it helped us take the rest, that we needed. This is going to be one of our most memorable holidays. Thank you.

    Everything about our trip was perfect. All the staff was so kind, friendly, and helpfull. This is a trip we won't ever forget. We were lucky to have Haasid as a hoster, he is a really nice guy. We loved the karaoke nights and disco nights at the FUN PUB with DJ DEER! We really enjoyed our evenings because everynight there was some event happening so we never got bored. Um Royal Island we could taste the peace, but also the fun. We could relax but also go on a adventure. In this Island is up to you if you want to relax or to get fun. The Food was amazing too in Both restaurants with many choices to take. To sum up, this is a place we certainly would love to revisit again.

    It was an amazing trip we had in Royal Island Resort & Spa. The delicacies were extremely finger-licking. The beach rooms were amazingly tranquil, beach just a couple of feet away... The crystal clear sea and clean white beach was so satisfying for our kids to play around. Spa was extremely helpful to relax us. One should experience the friendly hospitality there. Most importantly the island was sooo green and nature friendly... *much recommended


Royal is now accessible by wheeled aircraft to nearby Dharavandhoo airport. Wheeled aircraft to Dharavandhoo takes 20 minutes. Upon arrival you will be transferred to the jetty of the airport island via air-conditioned shuttle where a speedboat awaits you. From here it takes just 20 minutes to your destination Royal Island.

What people are saying about Mystical Maldives

We had the best time here in the Maldives as part of a three-week trip around Asia. The island is amazing and beautiful with crystal clear waters and wonderful sea life. Our agent from Mystical Maldives was very accommodating and gave us the best hotel choice. To sum up, it’s a very lovely vacation.

Simon W Smith

It was a very remarkable vacation we had in Angaga. My husband and I were able to spend our one-week honeymoon on a perfect Maldivian island. It would not be possible if it wasn’t for Mystical Maldives who helped us arrange this unforgettable experience. Thank you so much.

Anna Erik

We are extremely satisfied with our stay in the Maldives on a beautiful small Island with a beach, in bungalows over the water. My family enjoyed the water activities. The calm scenery of the seaside was very relaxing. Our trip was perfectly arranged by Mystical Maldives. It’s the best travel experience we’ve had so far.
