In summary, Ritz Carlton Maldives offers Kerry Hill architecture and the best service we've ever encountered in this atoll nation.
Perhaps one day Aman will open a property in the Maldives... for the time being though, this is as close as it gets.
The star of the show is clearly the in-flight hardware. With all aisle access, Bose headphones, modern IFE and comfortable bedding, AA is onto a real winner.
The negatives for me were the horrible service and very average food.
