This place is beautiful! We had a sunset villa where the sea and the wind are calm. Very nice private garden and 10 steps from the ocean. The service is very good, people are so kind. They create a community feeling and knew us by name after a few days. The good thing is that it is small, so personal. We went diving in small groups. Diving is good. And ofcourse you have to go here if you want to see dolphins and a whaleshark. We were lucky we saw it all❤️ |The food is good and they can cook whatever you want. And last but not least, go to the Japanese restaurant and the yoga!

Vakarufalhi- the island where Nova is located - is a small island. There are about 70 rooms. This is a part of our good experience. The beach is very nice. Depending from the wind you can choose the east or the sunset side of the atholl. The sunset part (we stayed in sunset beach villa with Jacuzzi - we choose them not for the Jacuzzi but for the position) is for us the best and room from 138 to 145 are the top. The room are new and really nice. There are two protective reef barriers in the beach but they are not invasive. You can snorkel from the beach. The best snorkeling is from the jetty (there are stairs also that go into the sea comfortable). On the right of the little pier there is a wall and a great view of fishes. The food is really various and good (it’s not always the same in other resorts of Maldives). The best part of our vacation were the personal of the staff. The general manager - Abdei (Abdulla) - the manager of the soul kitchen - our housekeeper Facil - and all - really all - the people were kind and friendly with us in every moment.| Sukuria (thank you in Maldive) for all.
