The crew were the best part of the trip apart from the actual diving. They worked so hard and took such great care of the whole family. We were really spoilt!! Thank you all so very much!
The whole crew was very courteous, diligent and professional, super efficient + helpful. Amazing dive trip, had so much fun - the crew were fantastic. Christmas celebration was extra special, thank you so much!!

Excellent, professional and experienced crew. Real teamwork making each guest feel welcome and highly satisfied. They go one extra step beyond expectations. The Christmas party was WAY beyond expectations. For the guest and reef, please provide reef hooks for high current dives. You need more marketing especially online.
Michael & Kimberly Ester, 20 - 27 Dec 2011
How do we know we exceed every expectation? Because guests tell us so, plus return year after year and delightedly recommend Manthiri to other divers and friends. Here are just a few of the gratifying comments they’ve made about their experiences with us:
Every aspect of the trip was wonderful from the dive masters to the boat crew + captains to the waiter to the cooks to the room boy. We didn't have to lift a finger to wash our gear or even hang up our wet bathing suits. We felt like we were royalty! The diving was exceptional--especially with Mantas! The meals/snacks were delicious + abundant + top-notch! Our waiter was the most courteous + polite young man who couldn't do enough for us. Our room by was very & was always attentive & was always there when we needed him. Both the dive & boat crew were beyond compare.
Beth Katz & Steven Schwartz, October 26, 2011
The staff is excellent. Everyone went to great lengths to make us welcome and take care of our needs. The boat crew was especially accommodating and took great care of dive gear and camera. Food was excellent.
Carl Frascogna, October 26, 2011
As always, your crew took excellent care of our group. All staff were professional and helpful. We will definitely come back.

We enjoyed our time on Manthiri even more than the 4 to 5 Star resorts we stayed at in the Maldives. In addition to the wonderful diving, we enjoyed getting to experience the local island and Maldivian culture. The crew went out of their way to make our honeymoon extremely memorable and we would like to thank everyone.
