Beautiful island with weak points
TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5
elisa9256SV TripAdvisor review
We visited Angsana Ihuru for a Maldives holiday on a pristine island without water bungalows. The island is very beautiful, has great vegetation and is very well maintained by the gardeners. The entire staff is incredibly friendly and very service-oriented. That is what makes the island so special....your incredibly dedicated staff. You rarely find so much friendliness. However, I also have a few criticisms. The price for a stay on this island is not cheap, which is fine if the service is good. But some things struck me negatively, especially because I know other Maldives islands with the same price level. -In the room there is a kettle and simple instant coffee. This fits in a cheap hotel, but not in such a high-class resort like Angsana Ihuru. I was annoyed by this on a daily basis. There are also eco-friendly capsule machines, with refillable coffee capsules. Other high-end hotel chains have had this for a long time. - The furniture in the villas is older and worn. Cupboards and doors close badly. Cosmetic repairs in the villas would be absolutely necessary. - I also expected a few biscuits or something similar to be provided for the afternoon as a nice touch during the morning cleaning. - What I also disliked a bit was that in the morning the beach in front of the villa was swept very clean, but the really heavy cushions for the sun island, the Maldives swing and the sunbeds have to be carried to the furniture by the guest alone. A little more attention and service would be desirable. - The last thing we missed was the nicely decorated beds from housekeeping (despite a daily tip) and some kind of music player in the room. A TV is rather useless. We found the holiday pleasant despite the shortcomings, which was mainly due to the staff. The house reef is great and the variety of fish is breathtaking. Snorkelling is a pleasure here.

Small island with beautiful house reef

willy89 TripAdvisor review
We stayed at Angsana Ihuru for 5 nights late July. There was a hiccup at the start as our transfer was late from Hulhumale, which was annoying as we had stayed overnight and were ready for an early transfer to the resort but they for some reason put us on a lunchtime transfer, they did apologize and we just moved on from it. I will try to give an honest overview of the resort , highlighting the good and not so good aspects. The good Beautiful close house reef, with lots of sea life and coral regrowth, which was wonderful to see. Amazing staff, who were friendly and helpful always. Large outdoor area from your room , with swing , day bed and loungers. Quick transfer by speedboat from Male , approx 25 mins. The not so good ! Plastic bags used to combat erosion, which is obviously a big problem in The Maldives. But I personally took 6 bags out from the reef whilst there, which is a concern. Some other type of material needs to used that is not so damaging to the reef and the wildlife. People continually feeding the fish with bread from the jetty , which again is not good for the fish. A sign needs to be erected to stop this, I told the staff it still continued. Rooms are very dated and worn and could do with a facelift. Food was good in the main but desserts were extremely average and not much choice. cheap coffee in the rooms. It would be nice to have a coffee pod machine. Summary This is not a 5 star island, definitely more 4 star. At the right price we would return. On the whole a wonderful stay with a few negatives.
Dear willy89, Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback on your recent stay with us. The constructive feedback from our guests such as yours will truly assist us in our efforts to improve while continuing to provide a high level of services to our customers. Please accept my sincere apologies once again for the unpleasant experience with the delay of arrival transfer. We are thankful for your kindness and generosity. Rest assured that it had been rectified the root causes and corrective actions to prevent the recurrence in the future. Your comments on the aged villa and the quality of compliment coffee as part of minibar, the plastic pieces from sand barrier on house reef, the quality and variety of dessert, and the fish feeding with bread by other guests at the jetty have been noted and shared with our respective leaders to optimize our offerings including revisiting and strengthening our standards and procedures, training, etc. In order to prevent the beach erosion around the island, we have a program to monitor and prevent the beach erosion by continuously pumping the sand back in the area where the beach is eroded. This phenomenon is seasonally changed as it is part of the mother nature, hence we place sand barriers and pump sand on the affected areas. We have replaced some our our existing bags used to build sand barrier to GEO bags which are environment friendly. Moving forward we are continuing to replace with other environment friendly materials. Your kind understanding on this matter and assistance to collect some of plastic bags from the reef is highly appreciated. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed our charming island with a convenient transfer from Male by a short speedboat ride, the gorgeous underwater world full of restoring corals, diverse colorful fish, sharks, rays, turtles perfect for snorkeling and diving, the villa with own garden area equipped with swing, sun loungers ideal for relaxation, the delicious food, and the impeccable service from our friendly, courteous and passionate staff. Once again, we thank you for your feedback and it is feedback like yours that we constantly strive to improve our services. If there is a possibility to be welcoming you again on our shores, we would love to try and do our best to make it a better one. Kind Regards, Kanruethai Roongruang General Manager Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru and Angsana Ihuru

Charleslyh9988 TripAdvisor review
I was a little skeptical when the staff welcomed me to paradise at first. At the end of my trip, I didn't want to leave this paradise. Great staff, beautiful reefs, unfortunate that there was some bad weather when I was there but we managed to get some snorkelling done. Surfing and kayaking was also available.

mimainn Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review
I have nothing bad to say about the Angsana Ihuru. I was there for five days and mostly did a lot of snorkeling. My booking via a travel agency included a lot of budget for activities which I could use up only half. Excellent food. Best things: House reef, nice beach at Banyan tree, private snorkelling tour, huge private area towards the sea with chairs, loungers and a sofa. Extremely convenient to reach from Male airport but still sufficiently far. Worse things: Really not much, maybe that the sunset cruises were advertised but are cancelled (Would have been an opportunity to use up the budget). General: Relatively old (2001) resort connected by shuttle boat (1-2 minutes) with the slightly larger Banyan tree where snorkelling is not so nice but the beaches are broader. Both have no pool(s) and no overwater villas but are quite luxurious.

SaradaJ2 TripAdvisor review
It was a perfect vacation for us. I’m really glad about I choose Angsana Ihuru for my holidays. The staff at the Angsana Ihuru are super genuine and attentive towards all guests. The front office staff is very helpful and friendly. They treat guests like family. We were surprised about their service. Special mentions for Manager Simaad and front office Manager Noafel, were amazing and helped make our vacation that extra special. Rohith and the bar lady who is working in the Main bar are super hard-working When it’s a busy time also he manages their work to treat guests without any delay. It’s an absolutely wonderful service. The food was plentiful and always of a high standard. The chef Ibrahim was amazing at the restaurant, the staff was so nice, so friendly, nothing was too much trouble, always saying hello and time to chat. We stayed in a jet pool ocean beach villa. The room is facing the beach it so claims place to relax. My kid enjoyed it a lot in the jet pool. Room service is really appreciating they did it perfectly. It’s clean and the smell feels refreshing to us always. We will definitely come back We did find our small paradise Thank you very much to everyone from Angsana Ihuru again.
