During the island's delicate opening in August 2019, we were among the first administrators to visit Emerald because we were eager to do so. Since then, the island has been fully operational, and we have since made a few quick visits. We are happy to show that the hotel is comparable, if not worse, than it appears on paper. The management team is made up of a tonne of notable people who were considered over other legitimate Maldives resorts due to their credentials and breadth of experience.
The interiors of manors are very open, have a more simple style that has been livened up with vibrant fine art inspired by nature, and have enormous showers with a distinct Italian extravagance feel. The jumbo beds rank among the cosiest places we've slept while moving around. All of the manors are close to the ocean, and we really enjoy the two-bedroom family homes, which become very popular during the busiest time of the year. The Prevalent Ocean side and Water Manors are colossal, excessively enormous for a couple, while the Regal and Official Estates are designed to take your breath away. The exterior design of the manors makes creative use of living walls, slanting rooftop lines, and even palm trees on the water estate pier.
The choices made regarding food are excellent. When you're at your table, Water feels surprisingly small for a major outlet because it has a varied buffet, live cooking stations, and elegantly organised seating areas. The specialty cafés take the experience to a higher level and are undeniably remembered for the Choice Comprehensive bundle. At The Oceanside Barbecue, you can enjoy fish while putting your toes in the sand, along with other tasty dinners like expertly made Italian pizzas. While Asiatique welcomes visitors to partake in a variety of Asian cuisine, including a truly fascinating Teppanyaki bar, Amazonico, which also has a sand floor, is quite possibly the best South American café we've ever eaten at.
