  • Ahmed was an angel, he organised some special things for us and was always there for us if we needed something. Also the hotel and the people there were awesome. The room was clean and very comfortable. Also the daytrips were great we went to snorkeling where we saw mantas, turtels and whale sharks. But there are much more activities you can do. And for a day relaxing, there is also a bikinibeach. I really recommend this host to everbody who wants to have a great time on the maledives. Thanks for having us and maybe we will meet us again :)

  • The location on the beach at the end of town is a perfect, beautiful, quiet place to relax and enjoy nightly sunsets. The staff are exceptionally kind, friendly and attentive. Day trips are readily available for booking at the front desk and beach nearby. We invite you to come join the family!

    Lois2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ahmed was so helpful at all times and so was the staff. This island is amazing and so much ocean life to be seen. Definitely coming back

    Jackie2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended, a fantastic beautiful accommodation with an even better view! Staff is super friendly, they are ready for you all day. The cook is really great, great food for little money .. Have also been included by the locals of the island, we have 2 nights with the people of the island, volleyball which even for myself and my sister in law led to an invitation to come back come for a tournament! Had wonderful days! Certainly not a goodbye but one until next time !!

  • A great experience from begining to end. Ahmed was quick on comm's, and went out of his way to ensure our family trip went well in every way. Excursions and activities were one of the highlights (thanks Abdulah - awesome!) - from night fishing through sunset cruise with dolphins to picnic island and snorkelling. Food was all very good (although the menu fairly basic) ...with BBQ dinner on the beach one of the highlights. The private beach, a 1min walk away, was fantastic, with a great house reef for snorkelling! Being a local island was also a great way to get a better feel for local life. There's obviously not a lot to do other than water activities of course, and being locl there's no alcohol available, so come prepared for this. My only slight negative on the whole trip is in relation to the public beach on the island - after a storm the beach stayed covered in plastic rubbish for over a week with everyone claiming it wasn't their job to clean it up - the locals need to sort an arrangement out for that - but this certainly isn't anything to do with the Manta Inn and our wonderful stay. Ahmed, Abdulah and team - a big thanks from the Fam and hope to see you again soon!

  • This is mainly a review about the host Mr. Ahmed...We were not able to make it to yonder because of bad wether conditions but Mr. Ahmed on the other hand was very cooperative and also helped us out in making other arrangements for us at mafushi in a very short time and also saved our honeymoon... He sent over a contact to receive us at the airport and through him made all the arrangements and also recommended us to a lovely resort in mafushi called Lily Rest. He was there for us through out the duration of the stay and is a gem of a person... He also accepted to refund the original amount... Never seen a host like him... I would highly recommend him even though we never actually got to meet him in person... So I can with out a doubt say that in person he would be even more helpful... Again Thanks Mr. Ahmed for being there for us...

    Rizwan2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks!! To owner and the manager for making our trip fabulous. Ocean View from the place is awesome, lovely sight seeing, amazing hospitality and very friendly behaviour of the people. They made our trip memorable, took us for various water activities, did various arrangements for our enjoyment and clicked our pictures underneath ocean. It was complete fun and relaxing throughout the time.

    Nupur2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We went to Yonder with 4 young kids and they really enjoyed everyday. We had an activity per day that showed us the gems of Maldives. From night fishing to Manta ray excursion, everything was great. Adam helped us everyday to make sure we had everything. The team really likes to show you the best of Maldives, not only the gems but also their people who are very nice and made us felt at home. Thank you for the welcome and hope to see you again.

  • We had a fantastic stay here! Everyone was very helpful and friendly. They even helped me for a romantic dinner for proposal and it was a great success! The room was nice and clean and the food was very delicious. We loved this place and would come back everytime :-)

    Edgar2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The staff are attentive and very kind. We spent a pleasant holiday with them. Fathu is very nice, take the time to chat with him (and the Palace of Versailles :)). They listen to your comments as they seek to improve, do not hesitate to tell them what was good or not. Every lunchtime, it's a vegetarian buffet and in the evening, buffet with fresh fish cooked by the chef, excellent! Among all the guesthouses on the island, I recommend this one just for the staff. Small information, it is an island where the locals live (Muslims), so an adequate outfit is required in the street / shop, but on the bikini beach (at 7min) and within the confines of the guesthouse no worries to be like you want.

    Florian2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • It amazing staying with such nice people. Island was very calm and comfortable. People around were very cooperative and helpful. Overall a very nice experience. Organisation of everything by hotel staff was very friendly. They were always ready to help and guide.

    Ankur2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We were there on our family vacation. It was just superb. Right from the time I have booked, I had good support and pointers promptly. Someone was there to pick us up from Airport, the ferry was managed to the island. Everything was as shown on the site. The staff is extremely prompt and very friendly and helpful. They were always available. Island gives the local experience and opportunity to interact with locals. Even though it is small island, it has everything one may need. Couple of restaurants (really slow service) basic grocery shops, great artists and amazing options of snorkelling. The best food is available at Ocean beach Inn itself, but one is to inform them in advance. Bikini beach is great but great place to connect with family.

    Shishir2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place is quite different from the other resort islands in Maldives as it comes with a warm welcome and a lot of loving gesture from the locals. The small piece of land has so much to offer right from house reef snorkelling to beach dinner. We were here on Christmas eve and Ocean Inn made beautiful arrangements for all the guests to make it a memorable experience for us.

    Tarun2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • We were very excited about our stay at this family-run establishment, the owner's wife is the cook, we tasted her kitchen and decided to eat there every day because we liked it so much and we thought it was the best in the whole 'island. The owners are very nice people, they always came to ask us if everything went well and we had nice chats with them. The island as we knew it is very small and there are no cars around, so the ideal place for those looking for some peace and tranquility, the bikini beach is a 5 minute walk away and is beautiful. The staff at the property are good guys who are always available to accompany you anywhere on the island. I definitely recommend this property!

    Ingrid2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect great hospitality from the host with planned excursions & outing. Place is well cleaned & located within approach.

    Hangnaameedhoo, North Central Province, Maldives

    A boutique hotel on a local Maldivian island. My partner Anne and I are avid travelers ourselves and made a place that we ourselves would stay at. Despite being on a local island, we make our own fresh bread, ice cream, pizzas, etc. We also have cozy tech friendly rooms (lots of power sockets, USB plugs, fast WiFi). We also arrange excursions for the area so whether it's water sports, scuba diving, island hopping or fishing, we got your back!
    Bliss Dhigurah is a 15 room guest house on the gorgeous local island Dhigurah in South Ari Atoll. We're right by the South Ari Marine Protected Area (SAMPA), which is home to whale sharks, mantas and other mega fauna. This is for one of our standard rooms.
    Dhigurah is a popular destination even among the locals. It literally means "long island" and is famous for the sand bank at the tip of the island. We also are lucky to have a wooded area whereas most inhabited Maldivian islands are more urbanized.
  • Bliss is just lovely, just as described. Hotel is super cute and has all the staff are SO nice. Chatting with them really made our trip more interesting. Shout out to Shaheen who was awesome in answering all our questions and setting up requests. Simone was great on our excursions together. Tim was also always ready to help. Can’t remember everyone’s name but all the staff are polite, friendly and go out of their way to help. The chef was nice and the Indian dishes he prepared for us were the best! If you want Western food (burgers, pizza, etc) the Hermit cafe has you covered. We preferred local food so mostThere’s not a ton to do so go Relax! Or do the excursions as it’s nice to be out on the water. The snorkeling safari was actually the best one we did... loads of fish, turtles, reef sharks, etc. Our only regret was the speedboat journey out (not on Bliss) which even on a good day is bumpy, too fast, too hot/stuffy and people get sick. Not a fun 2 hrs. Waiting for the boat is also a drag if you don’t time your arrival right. We took the speedboat in but the domestic flight back. It was well worth the money... even though you still Have a short scary speedboat ride :( Other than that it was a lovely, relaxing break. The weather was amazing and the island and surrounding areas are breathtakingly gorgeous.

  • It could’n be any better.

    Ole2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in your stay! Very cozy, well located and with very nice trips! The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is also worth mentioning! Bhupi was an excellent waiter!

    Eline2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • 6 of 5 stars! If you visit the maledives you should stay here! This is the perfect match between a cool stylish hotel and great quality! Very friendly and helpful staff wich makes your holiday unforgetable.

    Tony2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I had an amazing time at Bliss! We were supposed to stay for a week but liked it so much we stayed for a second week. Such friendly and helpful staff, good food, clean cool comfy room, and the island is stunning! We also saw whale sharks (albeit on our 3rd attempt), manta rays, turtles, dolphins, small reef sharks etc. I’d certainly come back and stay here again.

    Charlie2019-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful island and a beautiful place to spend the evenings after a day of exploring. The staff were helpful and had lots of day excursions available.

    Karina2019-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation - beautiful space and friendly environment. Particularly appreciated the effort of sustainability with metal re-useable straws and plans of de-salination tank. On that note a big water cooler where people can refill their bottles would be a good alternative to the countless plastic bottles. The food is great - especially the coffee! Very impressed. Would be nice to see afew more local Maldivian items on the menu and maybe a healthy breakfast option as well as the delicious but often sugar rich daily special. Our only other suggestion would be something to clean/wipe down the mats/equipment after use in the gym - fantastic resource considering it’s far too hot to exercise outdoors, though we still found ourselves drenched in sweat and would have been good to make the mats abit more hygienic for the next people using them. Overall a fantastic stay, would highly recommend, great ammenities and helpful staff. The island itself is not (yet!) overly touristy or commercialised, our only wish is that the pollution epidemic starts to be addressed before the beauty and wildlife are even more affected than they already are

    Yasmin2018-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect ! The island is beautiful and the team meets all your needs! To recommend !

"  Mazin was born and raised in a big family in Mahibadhoo, Maldives. For many years he worked for one of the most luxurious resorts in the world - Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. While there he helped building and designing the reef around the famous underwater restaurant. He soon realized that he knows what the guests need and quickly became friends with many of them. While working in the finest resort in Maldives he understood however that resorts are available only for the wealthy. At that time the government of Maldives announced that locals can now build guesthouses and offer them to tourists to stimulate the economy. Mazin didn't wait. He and his brothers built a small guesthouse on Mahibadhoo and decided to offer a slice of paradise at a reasonable cost. Inspired by Rangali he decided to make each guest's experience an unforgettable... Mazin enjoys spending that time in the office - that is either the beach or in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. He is married and has a son named Yamko.
  • I love Mahibadhoo islands . It’s a beautiful quiet wonder islands. But it does needs cleaning up around the beach. There’s many broken glasses if you are not careful to walk on it barefoot. While I was there I chose a guesthouse call The Amazing for stay over few nights. This is a family friendly business ran by Mazin’s family. My girlfriend and I had had a wonderful time in this island and have learnt a lot other cultures . Mazin is provide services boat transfer from Mahibadhoo island to 5 stars resort - Conrad’s Maldives. It takes roughly 30’ boat ride where we can have a few cocktails and dipping into a blue lagoon ocean or in a massive pool. Over all what an amazing experienced for us! Great time!

    Tammy2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with delicious food, super friendly host(s), clean and relatively big rooms. There are a lot of optional activities that you can choose from and for which Mazin & the team will make the most effort of making the activity the best experience possible.

    Valérie2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • First let’s set the perspective right. If your idea tropical island vacation is to relaxing on well-groomed beach sipping fancy drinks, or having a massage with ocean view, or have a bar serving you drinks right in the middle of the pool, you should pack up top dollars and head to resort. For us family of four (with two boys age 9 and 13), we wanted to explore the natural wonders of Maldives and at the meantime, see what local life is like. We are so pleased we found this little gem. This is a charming and comfortable lodging on a local island. We had a wonderful time living with locals. Food is delicious. Lodging host was always quick and kind to reply all our questions before the trip. During our stay, our hosts (Isse and Falabey) were always there to help and they went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. Maldives water is teeming with life. Our hosts know well every corner of the surrounding water. On our daily excursions with them, we saw countless colorful sea creatures. The highlight of course, was snorkeling with mantas and whale shark. To have those giants gliding right pass in front of us were truly mesmerizing moments. Equally memorable was the cruise at night to see algae glowing along the boat trail and shooting stars streaking through starry sky. The only regret is we have such short time staying at this place. We would highly recommend this place to anyone who would venture out of the packaged vacation deal to see the beauty of Maldives. And once again, we would express our greatest gratitude to our hosts for the fabulous time they gave us.

    Jack2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mazin and his team were very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend to stay here weather you are traveling solo, a couple or even a small group. It’s a great way to visit the real Maldives and stay on a local island and have local food cooked. The room was spacious, bed very comfortable and I personally loved the outdoor bathroom! Although the weather was not ideal for the excursions I could only imagine they would have been amazing. For that I can not wait to return to this gem. We were able to explore the island and felt very safe walking around. This guesthouse is a must if visiting the Maldives!

    Kassandra2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our room in the Noovilu suites was clean, had icey air-con, and a unique out door bathroom. We had access to the common area, a short walk away for wifi, tea, coffee and biscuits. Food was authentic homestyle, served at 8am, 1pm and 8pm and was satisfying. What really sets Mazins place apart, is not only the pricing, but unparalleled customer service on the trips he offers. His team of Ishmael, Aziz, Youseff, and the young Chef are a credit to him. My wife liked to walk along the beach picking up shells and didn't want to do any snorkelling and that was fine. I enjoyed the snorkelling, (even if I did get a little sea sick)and watching the guys free dive to get the best shots for us. The highlight on our short trip was the romantic day long 30 minute excursion to picnic island. Just a pristine baby island, with a shelter set up for us, snorkelling before and after lunch. It would be remiss of me, not to mention the island. The global problem of seaborne plastic waste can be quite confronting and interesting to educate yourself on what the Maldivian government, educators and environmental activists are doing about it. The island reveals its many layers as the days go by. It's a local island so you experience life as it really is. Surprisingly there are a number of coffee shops and restaurants, they do not overtly advertise their wares, you need to go in and explore. Here's to the next visit.

    Mark2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fyi, tis place has closed. However, you’ll be staying in the Noovilu Suites instead. which is a much cooler place i feel.. 🤣 Me & my husband would like to thank Ismail for being an excellent host. He was helpful thruout our stay. Check-in and check out was a breeze. We even managed to catch a fish and I managed to check all on my bucketlist.. so see the planktons right in the middle of the ocean and a sky full of stars. Alhamdulillah thank you for helping us. Hassan was helpful as well..assisting us with what we were confused abt. thank you once again.

    Nur Diana2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely incredible here; I can’t believe how lucky I was to stumble upon this place. Everything is geared to create a completely bespoke experience for each guest. I’ve never seen such thoughtful hospitality and enthusiasm. I can’t wait to return!

    Wendy2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great team with personal touches. Overnight stay at the deserted island is a must try activity! Will definitely come back and recommend this place to my friends. Owh super comfy bed too!

  • The place is really lovely. The chef is really good and cooked us some good local food. Abdullah aka Adam who handles the place is really a awesome guy, he has so much knowledge about the ocean and the Island we spent so much time listening to his experiences and seeing the videos he has of his snorkelling and diving, he was very helpful. I had asked for a surprise for my fiancé which was so beautiful and we both loved the beach dinner. This place is amazing and will go there again the next time and would recommend it to my friends and family who plan to go to Maldives.

    Tangerine2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent hostel with very attentive staff! Clean and comfortable! Several tour options! Spot for excellent snorkeling right across the beach bikini! Sara, Adam, Messi, Coco and all the staff made us feel at home! A great and beautiful Family! Congratulations, Ali!

  • Me and my husband we stayed at Yonder Retreat for almost two weeks. We came there very tired from rainy and cold Germany and we needed a calm place- just like Yonder Guesthouse in Bodufolhudhoo Island. Bodufolhudhoo is a peaceful island with friendly community, people live there simple life, you can observe those people, some of them will be interested in you, some of them will be observing you. Respect them. For example don’t wear too short skirts, but feel free at the beach area. People who work at Yonder Retreat are very nice, flexible and creative. Everything was well organized, food and trips (special thanks to Sara). We ate almost every day fresh fish as we wanted. Also tasty food for vegetarians. Ali was very attentive and answered all our questions. Boys who are working there also can solve your problems and can do “everything”. If you have luck, you’ll see how they dance, sing and play drums and maybe you’ll dance together. Snorkeling with manta rays, day at the Picnic island, night fishing, night snorkeling and other activities like resort visiting- everything was a good experience. We would strongly recommend Yonder Retreat to our friends and we would like to come back one day.

  • From right when you arrive, Yonder Retreat makes you feel like family. Ali, Sarah, Hussain and the team did a fantastic job at making our stay the most comfortable it can be. The excursions were amazing, especially snorkeling with the Manta Rays! It was such a unique experience staying at the local island of Bodufolhudhoo. We definitely feel like we got our full value (and more) at Yonder Retreat. We would love to come back for another stay sometime in the future!

  • We wanted to experience Maldives as a whole - the fancy resorts and the local Maldivian life. Ali and the Team at Yonder Retreat at Bodufulhudoo were fantastic and helped us see Maldives and local life through different eyes! Fulhudoo is about 2 hrs away from Male on speedboat and they managed the arrival and transfer process from the airport seamlessly (we didn't have a local number) with Haku, our awesome local guide in Male. The rooms are clean, comfortable and ideal ; the food was great too - local dishes made the Maldivian way ! The people are friendly and the village is a peaceful place to relax. The beautiful local beach is couple of minutes away and unlike what it says on the internet - in Fulhudoo, women can wear shorts / dresses in the village comfortably. The team arranged our excursions on time and we enjoyed the private island and the night fishing trips ! The best of course was the house reef - just a couple of meters from the bikini beach, the reef is absolutely gorgeous ! Thank you to the team at Yonder Retreat (Ali, Abdullah, Haku and Sara) for hosting us !

  • Everything great about this place and will recommend especially if you are going with young children and thinking twice on if you can manage or not. We went with 7 month old and would go again and again. Took care of the baby while eating, while doing activities and even with luggage all the way from Airport to this island. They have helpers coming right to the airport outside the baggage on the way in and out of the country. Staff is awesome. Food is awesome even for vegetarians. Walkable to both sunset beaches and right next to sunrise beach and middle of lot of activities in nearby islands.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Yonder Retreat. The house reef was the best snorkelling we've ever done. The boys were super helpful & kind. If you're a foodie, I wouldn't recommend getting the half or full board option here as we love our healthy food...and there are other cafes on the island you can eat at. Some really good dives too, we loved Maya Thila!

  • We a young couple stayed two weeks with the all inclusive package at the Yonder Retreat. Everyone makes different vacationers, we love the insellben, beach, snorkeling, fishing and diving. We were happy with the service, food and the room super! And would recommend it to our family immediately! Hussain was our contact person and organizer, we will miss him with his friendly and helpful way. In the end he was like a friend with whom we could experience everything. I am a passionate fisherman and fishing on the boat has always been an adventure where we have always caught something. The island is also perfect for relaxing on the beach, snorkeling and because the island has a super diving school "Atoll Scuba" it is also very recommendable for divers! Communication in English was very simple and uncomplicated. The food was varied and delicious. It was always taken care of everyone. We love fish and we got that often, and always totally fresh! The room was always clean, very attentively cleaned every day and with a totally comfortable bed. The service from and to the airport was always very easy and pleasant for us. WE WILL BE BACK!!!! :) EUER KEVIN & ANNA We stayed at Yonder Retreat for 3 nights. Everyone prefers another style of vacation. We love the life at islands, with its beaches, snorkeling, fishing and diving. That's why we looked for a local island on the Maledives. We were very happy with the service, food and the room at Yonder Retreat! We want to recommend it to our family and friends. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us by phone or e-mail. We will miss his friendly nature. In the end, it was like a friend to us. I am a passionate fisherman at home and the fishing trips were always an adventure. The Island is perfect for relaxing on the beach (Bikini) Beach, snorkeling on the house reef and with "Atoll Scuba" perfect for divers. The communication is in English and simple. The food was various and delicious. The chef considers all the wishes of the visitors. We love fish and we had very often fresh fish from the ocean. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The service from and to the airport was very easy and comfortable with Adam. We will come back one day !!! :) KEVIN and ANNA

"  Born and raised in Mahibadhoo, Mazin is a veteran of the premium hospitality industry where he spent years working for one of the most luxurious resorts in the world, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. When the government allowed Maldivians to own and run guesthouses on local islands, it was a dream come true for Mazin and he became one of the first to do so with the opening of his first guesthouse, Amazing Noovilu, tapping on his extensive industry experience and deep understanding of guest experiences. Today, he runs Noovilu Suites, a luxury boutique guest house in Mahibadhoo. Together with his team of family and crew, he offers visitors a chance to enjoy the beauty of the Maldives with the comfort of a hotel stay, all at an affordable price.
    ABOUT THE ISLAND -------------------------- A hidden gem in the Maldives blessed with crystal clear waters and picture perfect sunsets, Mahibadhoo is the capital island of the Alif Dhaal Atoll and located approximately 78 km (49 miles) south-west of Male, easily accessible by ferry or speedboat from Male city. On the west of this charming local island lies a peaceful lagoon and two harbours where local fishermen are often seen. On the east, you will find a beautiful beach. And on the main street of the island, there are local shops, restaurants and cafes. If you’re lucky, you might even catch an exciting game in play at the football field, a sport the locals love! GETTING AROUND ON THE ISLAND --------------------------------------------- Mahibadhoo measures just 2.4km (1.5 miles) long and 1.2km (0.75 miles) wide, which makes getting around extremely easy. An easy jog around the island takes 20 minutes and it takes only about 5 minutes on foot from Noovilu Suites to the main streets. More importantly for visitors, Mahibadhoo is very well-provisioned with basic services within easy reach. These include ATMs, banks, telecommunications shops, convenience stores and even medical facilities including a hospital and three well-stocked medical pharmacies. (US dollars are generally accepted on the island.) PEOPLE AND THE CULTURE ----------------------------------- Approximately 2,000 people live on Mahibadhoo and their sources of livelihood include fishing, construction, boat building, carpentry, handicraft and tourism. A vast majority of the local young men work in nearby tourist resorts. Maldivian people are generally very warm and friendly. On the island and at the guesthouse, it is a close-knit community where guests are made to feel welcomed and at home. There are, however, a few local customs and religious practices that non-locals are asked to respect.
  • Mazin is very accommodating and helpful as well as Falabe we really had a good time and this is a must experience for those people who would like to do “travel like local vibe”. Thank you again for everything Mazin.

    Gelyn2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The suite was very nice, clean with great designed. Food was really delicious prepared with love. Mazin is very positive person with the best smile we’ve ever seen! Has a great offers with activities you can do. But... the island is not so clean.... a lot of trashes on the public and bikini beach as well :( if it was cleaned properly that would be perfect island to stay with lots of coffee shops and playgrounds.

  • Mazin and his team are amazing, Noovilu is perfect if you want to experience local culture and still do all the excursions that the resorts offer at a fraction of the price. Tips: 1) if you do the overnight stay on the island bring a small backpacking mattress if you can fit it in, we slept on the sand and our backs hurt the next day. Still had an amazing time though. 2) be aware of the dress code for women, we did see tourists that didn’t have shoulders covered and were wearing short shorts but it’s just more respectful to the culture if you follow the dress codes since it is a local island. 3) we didn’t exchange any usd for the entire stay, you would probably get better prices if you did exchange for rufia but we were lazy and it all ended up okay. 4) full board is amazing, Mazins older sister is a fabulous cook, we had fresh fish, fried rice, rice, spaghetti, fresh fruit, juice, water, it was great, easy and very affordable. Meal times are at 8am, 1pm and 8pm. 5) if your diving or snorkeling I brought a skin suit so that I was fully covered, didn’t get sunburned at all. 6) we did the overnight stay, spear fishing, whale shark snorkel, and a check dive - total was $870 for 2 people super affordable 7) check in with Mazin to see if he needs anything brought from your country, it can be difficult to get certain things delivered. 8) if your not used to boat rides be prepared that the boat ride to the island may be rough, would recommend Dramamine if you don’t do well on boats. 9) if you do get sick the pharmacy has lots of options available for sale and they are very cheap 10) there is a grocery store right next to the Airbnb that takes cards - Lemon Root Have an amazing time! We are hopeful we can return back soon.

  • LOVED the hosts!! They are very welcoming, they take time to listen and chat with you and will do everything they can to make you enjoy your stay. We liked the outside bathroom as well as the shared area were we can have breakfast, lunch and dinner. Good package of activities. The boat trip from Male takes a little while and if the see is a little wild you might get sick (tip: sit at the back of the boat! Second last row are the best: tested and confirmed) but it’s TOTALLY worth the trip and little adventure :-) What we loved mostly was being among the locals in stead of the big resorts <3

  • I and my husband were on our honeymoon and we wanted to have a small comfortable stay in Maldives. We are avid airbnb travellers so the first option that we thought of while making reservations was airbnb. We came across Noovilu suites and found it to be well within our budget and to our liking. Mazin was quick to respond and was in constant touch till we reached Male. I must have asked him a dozen silly questions but he always had the perfect reply. From Male airport to Mahibadhoo port, he helped at each step. Mazin and his team are very well versed with all the good spots for water activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, whale shark watching etc. They have their speedboat and they will take you anywhere you like and try to give you the best experience. Mazin and Falabeh always accompanied for all water activities and are great guides! We made some beautiful memories in Mahibadhoo. We are vegetarians and the easiest available food is seafood, but they went out of their way and cooked delicious vegetarian food for us. One day they even arranged for tables and chairs at the shore so we could have our time under the moonlight! Also they'll click beautiful pictures of you and you won't even have to ask!! Over all, we loved our stay in Noovilu. It is for people who travel to have experiences and not for Instagram!

  • This homestay has a sense of design. The shells, coconut shells, hemp ropes, and half-revolving wooden doors all feel like Maldives. The bed was very comfortable. Every meal is made by a big sister, not many varieties, but I like the taste. However, a handsome European guy who stayed at the same time was not used to eating. Every meal was eaten by himself. The landlord helped book a speedboat. Falabe is a handsome guy. He was very enthusiastic. He transported us to the dock, helped us with our luggage, accompanied us to a picnic on an uninhabited island, accompanied us to a glass boat, and brought us sunburn medicine. We bought masks and gave them to us as a gift. This island is more suitable for snorkeling. There is a blue hole near the hotel's doorway with a large area of live corals, which is very beautiful. There are three fish boxes in the deep sea, also known as the marine pasture, where we snorkeled and saw turtles and large swarms of silvery fish. I saw bread starfish and jellyfish in the shallow water of the public bath. There are pieces of crabs on the large rock near the hotel's entrance, and various seabirds fly overhead. Every time a fixed time comes, the mosque will send out music, ... as long as it is not hot in the sun, it is a very pleasant island. We chose to report to Picnic and went to an uninhabited island to eat the fish they shot. That island is also very suitable for snorkeling. I saw sharks and jellyfish. There is a small cluster of live corals near the sea, and there are several clown fishes inside. It is really the same as the picture in the story of the undersea story, Nemo shuttles through the corals. At noon, I had tuna and another big fish without a name. It was delicious. Resident islands have residents living, so environmental sanitation is indeed not as good as hotel islands. It is recommended that the island government start environmental governance as soon as possible. When I came back to the speedboat, I saw a lot of flying fish scared by our speedboat all the way, and some of them could fly dozens of meters. The first time I saw it, I felt very fresh! I have met three foreign friends and they are all friendly.

  • It's one of the best place to be in if u are looking for budget vacation in Maldives it was like a dream honeymoon for us . Was there for 7 nights but never got bored even the island was very small . As we did some memorable excursions with Hasan Mazin n his boys ( Falabe(Abdul Aziz) , Samey(Sabey), Mohammad Mazin). We did four of their hot favourite excursions and i recommend everyone to do these four excursions for sure if your are Noovilu Suites at Madhibadhoo island. Day 1, We just reached around 1.30 in afternoon n guess what the man himself Mr. Hasan Mazin was there at the harbour for greeting and receiving us. We checked in our rooms guest house is amazing beautifully designed and had many thoughtful touches added by Mr. Mazin. Had our lunch at the in-house resturant which was great very local very homely. Then we relaxed for some time n then went for the walk on the local beach and had a lovely evening. Later in the night we had dinner in the our in-house restaurant which was also very tasty. And we planned for our excursions for day 2. Day2, We had breakfast and left for our first excursion which was Snorkeling Hopping, in which Mazin or his team will take you in their Speed boat at three different spots for doing snorkeling and teach u to how to do it if u are the first timmer and will allow u to do it in their company if you are already aware of it. As we were doing it for the first time and we even didn't know to swim they took us to a place in the ocean which had very shallow water and for the second took us to more deep water and for the third time were thought it is it our fear was gone we were doing it very nicely after that. We saw some beautiful water life in the ocean while doing snorkeling hopping. If you are new to water i suggest the excursions to everyone it will let your water fear go n make u more relaxed and Ocean friendly. We came back from the excursions and did some snorkeling again at the house reef which was fun as it was Friday and many locals were also their enjoying their holidays they were Very warm and friendly people. Day3, We didn't go for any excursions but did went to explore local island with my partner and had some local cuisine in local restaurants and even we went on local bikini beach also call as tourist beach which has covered fencing s that locals can not go on it n going to bikini beach will charge u one dollar per person per day . So you can go n relax in your bikini if u want to as it is not allowed to wear bikini on local(public) beach, but personal choice we found local beach more attractive and beautiful then bikini beach . Both the beach are just 200 meters from the guest house. Mazin has some lovely hammock in front of his guest house surrounded by trees and has beutiful view and cool breeze everytime. Day 4, We went for one of our most favourite excursions it's called " Private Island Overnight Picnic" i must say everyone must try this excursion as its a Dream Come True experience you will be taken to a Private Island we caught fresh fish did barbecue and slept under the stars it was such a experience we can't explain it in words everyone must try this as it is only available with Mazin. Every Honeymooners must definitely try this. We came back next morning after having breakfast at private island. Day 5 , We relaxed we went on beach did some swimming and snorkeling on the house reef snorkeling gears are complimentary from guest house. At dinner we planned for tomorrow's excursion which was scuba diving. Day 6, We had Breakfast and went for scuba diving with Hasan Mazin and Mohammad Mazin it was wonderful experience with them it our first time but we did very well as we had the best master's with us we recorded some amazing videos under water. Day 7 , We went for Whale Shark it was amazing experience and we were lucky enough to see them easily without wasting much of our time waiting for them we did three dives it was something we won't forget being so close to Whale Shark was like a dream. Later in the same route we went for one more excursion call Private Resort visit we went to Holiday Island Resort and Spa which was a beautiful Property we had buffet lunch there had some beers clicked some lovely pictures and came back by evening. We had a great sleep . Day 8 , It was hard for us to leave but with so much amazing n beautifully memories with us we left the island. We want to thank each n every one in Noovilu Suites Family from bottom of our hearts for making our Honeymoon so memorable n beautiful . It was like a home we never felt like guest house. We are missing our friends Mr. Hasan Mazin (The Boss), Falabe(Abdul Aziz), Sabey(Samey), Mohammad Mazin, Mariam, Neera, Mozam, Yanko, Yoman, we are even missing Richie n Kuchie. We are definitely coming back to Madhibadhoo very soon.

  • After 10 days, which we were allowed to spend with Mazin and his family, we can really look back on a wonderful time, great experiences, great local food and a fantastic underwater world. We deliberately did not live on a resort island and the other religious and natural conditions that an island of the locals brings with us were no longer a problem for us after a short time. On the contrary, the family of our guesthouse made the days on Mahibadhoo perfect for us. All of Mazin's brothers and sisters went out of their way to make us feel welcome and give us great moments. Mohamad, with whom we were able to discover the wonderful underwater world. Sabeh, who successfully took me to spearfishing (3 shots, 2 hits WOW !!!!) All the women in the family who spoiled us with great local delicacies every day. And of course Falabeh and Mazin, who were always there for us with all questions and who organized and organized everything perfectly. We have experienced, laughed, marveled, enjoyed and recovered so much that unfortunately the time passed like in flight. We will definitely visit Mahibadhoo and Mazin again and can only advise anyone interested, visit him and let them show you the wonderful world of the Maldives.

  • We had the pleasure to be in Maldives for 10 days. Yaamin was very helpful to answer all of my questions. I didn’t get to meet him, because he was on a family trip. But everything was taken care of. People were at the airport waiting for us. The transfer was very smooth. DHIGURAH is a beautiful island, is where the locals live. My BF and I didn’t want to be in a resort due to many things. We didn’t want to pay transfer fee (up too $400 each person) We wanted to feel like one of the locals and do awesome activities with the money we had. We recently got scuba diving certified. Our main focus was to do as many dives as we can. Prices were very reasonable as well. One of our highlights on this trip. We saw whale sharks, Manta Ray, turtles, dolphins and many fishes. Food was superb, like comparable to a fine restaurant. Also, the staff was sooo genuinely nice. Everything we wanted to do, they made it happen. Special thanks to Ahmed for going above and beyond on my last day there. He prepared this fabulous dinner on a sand bank for 2. Literally cried of how beautiful it was. I highly recommend it if you a likes adventures.

    Daisy2018-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Ive been to many many places all over the world and Can honestly say this is the best service we have ever had the place is absolutely stunning would highly highly recommend this island everything about it is perfect and we cannot thank the staff enough at white sands they have been the most attentive helpful people we have ever come across they could not to more for you anything you want or need they are there before you can say excuse me. The room Is cleaned sometimes 3 times a day to perfection. The tours and trips are absolutely amazing and the helpful staff won’t give up on the tours until you see what you have paid to see where most of the resorts don’t care. The food at the hotel is fantastic a+++, very fairly priced and they can even arrange a perfect dinner for you on the beach to watch the sunset every night or will arrange dinner for you anywhere on the island. Also Highly recommend their trip to the sandbank it’s the most amazing experience and they even brought us our dinner and Shisha to the island Which was only us on it. Fantastic!!! If you are coming to the Maldives please come here we would highly recommend it to anyone!!!!!

    Craig2018-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice, clean, pleasant and quiet accommodation, a few steps from the beautiful beach. We can see wonderful fish (at corals), twice we meet with turtles. On the shore many small cancers are running, but harmless. The staff, very attentive, kind, the meals deserve special praise. (10-12 euros per diner / person and very exhilarating) .There are daily drinking water and coffee in the rooms. Only one side of the island is beautiful (CURRENT), the other is shallow and very garbage. There are only 4 sun beds on the beach, not enough. Local residents are also very nice, they are not considered a bad name if you visit the village. There are a few local shops, pretty poor (except souvenir shops with their richness), but you get everything you need in the hotel, which is not what Yaamin helps and sends with a motorboat.

  • I had a wonderful time with Shifa and Halym in their lovely guesthouse. I spent 3 days, 4 nights there (the only tourist accommodation on the island) and I was lucky to be the only guest and they looked after me very well. They are very welcoming, nice, hard working and at service at all time. Dhidhoo is a small, peacefull island where i got the chance to mix with local people, experience the maldivian culture, i really enjoyed being away from busy Islands with big resorts. We went on 2 snorkeling trips where we had the luck to see a whaleshark, a manta ray, Eagle ray, tortles and dolphins.!! I discover great way to eat coconut..! Yami! And we finished our trip with a bbq on the beach! Great! I have good memories of good times. I highly recommend to visit them :)

  • We loved our stay at White Tern. The host Haleem and his wife Shifa was for sure the best Airbnb host we've ever had. This island is for you that want a unique experience. There are only around 60 people living there and the small village is surrounded by jungle and unspoiled beaches. The people in the village are very friendly and open. We were invited over to a dinner by the beach with other locals. The cafe has some very nice and cheap lunch-snacks. The beach is a few footsteps from the accommodation and is clean and has nice sunbeds. The water at the beach is shallow and is safe for kids. If you wish to snorkel and see more areas around they have excursions to nearby areas like the manta point and to see whale sharks. (A very cool experience!) We were diving at Maamigilli(island close by) with a very good diving school and were out at the most beautiful diving spots we have been to. Haleem and Shifa helped us to arrange everything we asked for and also gave many good tips and ideas for us. They are truly friendly and wants you the best. The accommodation is neat, clean and nice. The dinner and breakfast were the best we had in the Maldives.

  • Mode's place won't disappoint the normal Airbnb guest, it's updated, super clean, and the hospitality is 5 stars! It's a diamond in the rough but for a remote island stay I don't think one could ask for more. Gorgouse water views at the island's edges, a hammock and chairs to enjoy near by, and walkin paths. Mode was responsive and effective for transfers from Rangali and back to Male! I would gladly stay here without hesitation!

  • White Tern Maldives review with host Haleem (Mode): White Tern Maldives is a beautiful guest house and Haleem and his wife are extremely friendly, attentive and able hosts. White Tern Maldives is a beautiful Guest House is on a small inhabited island called Dhidhdhoo with less than 200 friendly residents and a tropical jungle not far from an island resort called Lux Maldives (in South Ari Atoll “Alifu Atoll” -- not to be confused with another island by the same name Dhidhdhoo in North Thaladhunmathee Atoll “Haa-Alifu Atoll in the northern part of the Maldives). White Tern Maldives Guest house is located on the channel where powerful currents carry plankton out of the atoll during the northeastern monsoon where manta rays and whale sharks feed. Haleem arranged transport for us via speedboat from Malé to Dhidhdhoo. As most things are closed on Fridays in this Muslim country, Haleem arranged for a domestic flight to return back to Male on our Friday departure from a nearby island. The guest rooms are very clean and well appointed with very good AC and wifi and very large clean bathrooms. Towels are provided for use in the rooms and separate towels for the beach. The “house reef” is beautiful and home to whale sharks and bioluminescent plankton. We went on snorkeling excursions almost daily and saw many beautiful corals, whale sharks, white tip reef sharks, sea turtles, stingrays and many tropical fish. The giant manta rays are known to be there also, but we did not have the opportunity to see them (such is the luck of the draw with nature). Dhidhdhoo is a beautiful Island. The local beach is just a few minutes walk from the guesthouse. At night you can see the bioluminescent plankton in the water - what a dream!!! The people who live on this island are very friendly. One gentleman invited us over for coffee. Another family invited us to have a bbq on the beach with them. One family shared a dessert with us under the shade of a tree. 1 particular excursion we enjoyed a lot was a day trip to an isolated sandbank island. What a beautiful way to spend a day! One of the highlights of our stay was the food! We tasted some of the most delicious Maldivian dishes during our stay! I cannot speak enough as to what gracious, attentive, and knowledgeable hosts Haleem and his wife are and hope that you will stay with them; I highly recommend staying with them and plan to do so again in the future. This was truly one of the best vacations of my life.

    Within walking distance from the white sandy beach of Dhigurah, Our freshly built Island Lifestyle Hotel, 'Whitesand Dhigurah' offers 4 stories with 25 luxurious modern rooms ranging from Standard, Deluxe w/ Bathtub, Deluxe w/ Balcony and on the top, 2 Super Deluxe Suites with jacuzzi , which gives you the breathtaking view of our gorgeous island and the scenic view of the beautiful Horizon. All our beautiful spacious rooms are w/ AC and equipped with all amenities that you may require.
    The Hotel also boasts of its on-site Restaurant, which serves various varieties of Maldivian, Asian and Western dishes. Furthermore, our Dive Centre 'Oceanholic Divers' offers with Padi Dive instructors conducting Padi Certification Dive Courses which ranges from Discover/Bubble Dive to Dive Master courses.
    The gorgeous Dhigurah Island with about 500 local inhabitants is located in the prestige region of South Ari Atoll, 96.8 kilometers from the Capital City, Male’. Approximately a 20 minutes flight from Male’ International Airport or a 1 hour 30 minutes speedboat ride directly from Male’ City. In our native language Dhivehi, the name of the island ‘Dhigurah’ can be directly translated into ‘Long Island’. Dhigurah is well-known as one of the most beautiful local islands in Maldives which its outer shores are the home of Whale sharks & Mantas. The island is also famous for its gorgeous long tailed beach at the tip of the island. The island also has 2 other Restaurants (where most of the International dishes and varieties are available), 1 Cafe', 1 Health Centre, 1 Pharmacy, Local shops & Marts (where fresh groceries and all general goods are available for your daily needs), and all these places are at walking distance.
  • The beach is superb and it is unforgettable that the long tail beach is setting sun. Breakfast at the beach, nice food. Snorkeling to see Whale shark, Manta, a great experience. The staff was warm and thoughtful and the room was tidy. The island has a good natural environment, few residents, fewer tourists, and a paradise. However, the island's garbage disposal is burned, and there are boat factories on the shoreline that are making FRP boats, which are also polluted.

  • Nice hotel with very friendly and flexible staff always ready to assist!

    Claes2019-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was superlative. I had the room with balcony, big room, every day we had free water and coffee, cleaning was done twice a day and changed the towels daily. We have beach towels what other hotels do not offer. The hotel is close to the village (5 min walk) and close to the bikini beach (5 minutes) where there are sunbeds, tranquility, palm shade and snorkeling. Both on the beach and the jungle you could go to the end of the island (where sunbeds were) to enjoy the ocean, the silence, the white sand and snorkeling (on Friday and Saturday it was not allowed in bikini on this beach because wine locals). As long as I stayed at the hotel, where eating and serving and the prices are very good. We wanted to eat elsewhere but I saw that on the menus of the other hotels the prices did not include the 10% and 6% taxes. You do not have to change dollars in the local currency because the prices are in dollars and even in the village you can buy soup juices in dollars. Every evening, the hotel attended the excursions and let us know what excursions are being made in the next 2 days, the prices and all you need to know. At the hotel both in the room and in the open spaces (lobby, restaurants) are not mosquitoes but on the beach in the shade you should have the solution to yourself. Mosquito solution also found at the reception. if you wish you can ask to prepare dinner on the beach. Thanks Yasmin for the walk in Male and because you wanted to have a dream stay and so it was. Thanks to your hotel team because they are wonderful and make you feel like friends. I saw the sunrise every morning (less than 1 minute from the hotel) and sunset every day on the bikini beach. In no time was it the same. A tip: Yaamin not to change anything is wonderful. I highly recommend this hotel and Yaamin will answer all your questions and he and your team will make a dream vacation.

  • We stayed for 9 days with our two kids at White Sand Dhigurah hotel and would love to come back. The service is exceptional, all personnel were very polite and attentive. The rooms has a high standard and beds are really comfortable. The roof top restaurant of the hotel is highly recommended with good food for a good price, and to eat under the bright stars.... just amazing. The location of the hotel is also superb with <1 minute walk to the white beaches and reefs of Dhigurah, but also close to the village. A great advantage with Dhigurah island is in fact the village nearby giving you the chance to get to know everyday life of Maldivians a little bit, so much more interesting than staying on a sterile resort-island. Genuine and a very nice experience. Convenient service provided with Speed-boats (can be a bumpy ride...) from Male airport, and then pick-up at the harbor of Dhigurah. Thanks Yaamin for a wonderful stay!

  • Great place for a great family vacation.

  • GO TO WHITE SAND DHIGURAH! Just try it out once, and you won't want to try any of the other 1100 islands in the Maldives! It is the longest one (~1.5 to 2hs from one end to the other, connected with bank sand and another island via shallow water) and it has so much to offer, you will not get bored for sure! My boyfriend and i went there for 5 days beginning of March'2018 and we left the place with a "wow" feeling, a sense of belonging, a state of nostalgia and a wish to come back the next year. We arrived from Colombo to Hulumale airport late evening, spent the night on Hulumale island, took a morning local flight of 20 min to Maamigli island and a 20-30 min speedboat to be at the hotel before 9 am next morning. On our way back, we took a 2hs speedboat directly to Male, met with Yaamin and enjoyed the city, before our late evening flight back to Colombo. The organization of the trip was spotless and Yaamin helped us with every little detail, always answering our queries on AirBnB, on phone or in person. He took care of us from arrival to departure and even when he wasn't with us, he handed us over to the best people in the world (he lives in Male and the hotel is in Dhigurah, which he sometimes visits for work as well). An entire day before our flight back, he took us through a Male tour, with souvenir shop discounts, local food tasting, fish market, cultural & religious spots explained, plus sat with us through lunch on a beautiful terrace at the harbor. The White Sand Dhigurah hotel is the best place you can choose when you say Maldives. You have amazing hospitality, rooms which are cleaned 2 times a day, every one of your wishes accomplished and accessibility to all you can want. And it is all so affordable! You can go exploring the ocean in a glass-bottom 2 persons kayak, get a bike from the hotel (or a ride in an open tiny electric pick-up car) and stroll around the island towards the beach spots, go on sunset fishing trips, have lunch/dinner on the bank sand (which is connected to the island through shallow water and you can get to/from there so easily), or my favorites: do snorkeling or scuba diving!! They have whale sharks, turtles, manta rays and gazillions of colorful fish, that will make you go crazy about how beautiful the ocean really is, so close and reachable to us. We were immediately convinced to do our Open Water PADI diving course with them and i believe it was the best choice in the world, totally worth it! (We were in Sri Lanka, Mirissa, 1 week later, doing a scuba dive with the most "experienced" scuba center there and our training and experience with David & Sami @ White Sand might have saved our lives and the ones...

    Koimala Inn is located in maamigili island on south ari atoll at a center of a whale shark point with a private bikini beach for guests who can enjoy snorkeling, whale shark, manta safari, picnic trips, night fishing, sand bank lunch etc
    The hotel is located in center close to grocery shops and markets
    Close to restaurants and grocery shops and markets
  • Good place to stay! But we lived at Whale shark inn, because it was overbooked. But whale shark in was very good! Nice stuff. But if you are going to Maamigili I recommend you to go to Holiday island and Sun Island, it was so beautiful and nice there (but expensive).

  • I stayed at Rifath's for two nights with my husband and my brother and his wife. We were very impressed with this Airbnb experience. Before arriving, we asked several questions regarding transportation to the island, excursions, etc. Rifath was very responsive. He even offered to arrange for our flight to Maamigili from the main island. This saved us money and helped us out with logistics. The check in at the airport was very smooth as he had taken care of the arrangements. He was at the airport on his island to greet us. It was a very short drive to the Airbnb. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted warmly and given a glass of juice. The accommodations were exactly what we needed. It's not overcrowded there, the rooms were clean, AC worked well, and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good and gave you a chance to taste a local Maldivian dish. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away. They arranged our whale shark excursion and gave recommendations on local restaurants. They also arranged for us to take a speedboat to the Conrad Hilton island where we were staying next. Overall, it was an excellent experience. The entire team there showed kindness and professionalism. I would definitely recommend this place.

    Jen2019-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Traveling to the Maldives on a budget has a lot of unanswered questions to go with it however Rifta is an amazing host and help. His hospitality and willingness to assist travelers put his inn well above others in my opinion.

    Dhigurah is one of the most beautiful and unique local islands of Maldives and also one of the longest island - over 3km (in Maldivian language Dhivehi “dhigu rah” means exactly “long island”). The widest, northern part of the island is around 200m wide and gets more and more narrow when going south – the last 1km of the island is only a few meters wide, what gives you amazing feeling when you walk through the jungle forest and later through the sandbank, having a crystal-clear turquoise lagoon at both sides of your path. That shape (ideal to cycle or walk around), the 80% of the island covered by a lush green tropical forest and over 3km of silky-smooth sandy beaches are the biggest treasures of Dhigurah making it an ideal place for relaxing holiday, close to the nature. This area is considered as one of the best diving locations in Maldives (around 30 dive points). The most famous nearby dive sites are Kuda Rah Thila, Manta Point and Maamigili and Dhigurah Beyru. There you can see huge 10meters-long whalesharks, sea turtles and majestic manta rays – even by just snorkelling at the sea surface.

  • The description of this guest house is as described and it's a really is a very homely residence owned and run by Imran and Fatu. Raj, Ali and the rest of the team were so welcoming and friendly from arrival to departure - great customer service. It's a tranquil and quiet island where tourists and locals share a space. I chose the bnb option where breakfast is simple but adequate with lots of fruit available. Bottled water is provided each day. Excursions were great and very reasonable in comparison to prices quoted on other islands - but the all share the same sea, fish and beaches so why pay more! Do attend the sandbank picnic which was amazing and I also took part in sunset fishing there are many excursion options to chose from, but the team are accommodating. Tourists are expected to respect local customs, therefore the only beach were bikini's can be worn is 5mins away, where snorkelling is possible all day - either using your own or equipment available for free at the guest house. This an island largely unspoilt by tourists - so get there before it is. Also...Do take cash to the island as they do not have cash machines - but again that does add to the charm of an island gradually building it's tourist economy. Definately a great guest house, great staff and great to either relax or indulge in excursions.

  • Ocean Beach Lodge is a very nice location on a local island in the Maldives, for those who want to experience the Maldives (paradisiacal beaches, waving palm trees, coral, rays and reef sharks just like that, drinking coconut water from a coconut, swimming in the most beautiful turquoise water and be spoiled by a friendly staff) but don't want to be stuck in a resort. The beauty of a local island is that you also get to know the real Maldives and its inhabitants and learn something about the country in which you live. General Manager Fathu was a source of information! Our flight times were not compatible with the ferry to the island of Hangnamedhoo, but Ocean Beach arranged for an overnight stay in Male and transportation from the airport to the overnight accommodation and the next day from the hotel to the ferry. We were met and guided throughout the entire bridge until we could join the speedboat ferry. We just arrived from Sri Lanka for 2 weeks and didn't want to sail for hours before we arrived at a beautiful location. Hangnamedoo is a good hour's boat ride from Male, so it's great! On the island we were met by the Ocean Beach staff. Very well cared for! Bikini beach where women can stay in bikinis is only a 3-minute walk away, lounge chairs and shade. Ocean Beach provides the beach towels for its guests! In the (spotless) rooms furthermore coffee and tea facilities and in addition unlimited water. Further pluses accommodation: good beds, good shower including shampoo / shower gel and plenty of towels, good wifi (perfect for the three adolescent daughters!), Beautifully made bed every day, basic but adequate breakfast with Nutella, fruit, cereals and always a changing hot dish . Dinner buffet different every day, we had a great meal. Lunch is brought to the beach (if desired) (just ask for cutlery !!!). If you suffer from mosquitoes you will get anti-mosquito stuff to rub on you. Excursions are arranged from "house" and are very neatly arranged. We went with the crew to Dream Island (truly a paradise !!!) and they really provided a fantastic lunch, including the grilled fish that daughter loved caught, so we don't eat the tuna that often! En passant they took us on a snorkel safari and really gave all family members a super day! By the way: you don't have to go far for beautiful sealife, because we saw sharks, turtles, moray eels and various beautiful tropical fish at the house reef. Imran responded to our questions within a few minutes of booking and during our stay it was no different. In short, we look back on a wonderfully well-kept week, and perhaps someday we will return to do the whale shark excursion again!

    Piet2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is not a high-priced, spa-on-site resort – it’s a Guesthouse, the equivalent of a bread-and-breakfast. But having been recently at a resort, my wife and I much preferred our experience here. It was much more intimate in the sense that there are only 5 rooms, so the friendly and ever-helpful staff get to know each guest personally, and they went out of their way to customize our experience here. For example, they recommended excursions (see below) that they knew we would like, prepared lunches and dinners to our taste, and threw a lavish dinner-on-the-beach with all our favorite local foods on the evening before our departure. Similarly, we got to experience the local community/culture here much more than at a typical island resort. We often walked (I ran) the island, and got to see children going to school and playing outside, men working their fishing boats and boat repair, local shops, etc. People here are friendly. Communication was exceptional before, during, and after the booking process, with most inquiries answered within the hour. Check-in and -out was exceptionally easy. Whereas with many resorts it is necessary to stay in Male overnight after flying in, here we were met at the airport and escorted directly to the boat that took us to the Guesthouse. Likewise, when we left, we had the option of taking the boat either to Male or directly to the airport. The facility itself is beautiful, exceptionally clean, and well-staffed (so much so that we felt like we had a personal butler – thank you, Senthil!). Our room was spacious and well-appointed. We ate most meals at the Guesthouse (restaurant options on the island are very limited). Meals were served buffet-style, with a mix of local and Western cuisine, with a bit of Indian thrown in because we let them know we like spice. The tourist beach is a 3-miute walk away. The Guesthouse itself is on the water, with a well-manicured garden perfect for watching the ocean, listening to the waves, laying in a hammock or sitting in a lounge chair, and reading a book. The ocean immediately in front of the Guesthouse is also the best place on the island for snorkeling. Though the beach in front of the Guesthouse is rocky, the steep underwater drop-off that surrounds the island is closer to land here than anywhere else on the island. This underwater boundary (which you can observe above the water by noting the line between the light-blue water immediately surrounding the island with the darker-blue water beyond it) is where the fish and underwater wildlife thrive. In addition to a bajillion colorful fish, I swam with sea turtles, manta rays, (harmless unless provoked) reef sharks, and a moray eel. Excursions are very reasonably priced, both relative to the other resorts in The Maldives and the handful of other resorts I have been to worldwide. They are provided in-house rather than being outsourced. This makes them much more customizable. For example, when my wife mentioned that she had not yet seen dolphins, the local fellow in charge of one of our excursions made a point of finding them for us on our boat ride back to the island. My wife and I had the trip of a lifetime here. We hope we have an opportunity to return, and if we do, we will definitely stay at the Guesthouse again.

    Rick2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place and really great value for money. Came back for a second time to do all the snorkelling and was not disappointed Ali made a wonderful video a great memory to keep.

    Claire2019-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place was a perfect retreat. The 3 young lads who helped out were amazing the highlight was eating the octopus they had caught. The views from the lodge was everything one could ask for , I would love to go back.

    Hannelore2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sara will welcome u once u reach the jetty. Adam and Coco, the local Maldivian will bring you to the snorkelling and they are very friendly. They provide 3 meals a day and the life over there is relax and chill. But before depart, the host might take a little bit longer time to reply your message. Overall, we are satisfy with the stay as it is a chance to understand more about the local culture. Thank you Sara and the team!

    Janice2018-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • Yonder retreat is really the place to stay. They give the best and friendliest service you could get. Always there to make your stay customized and great at a reasonable price. Will recomend it to all my fruends.

  • We had a memorable trip. Sara and team were very friendly and hospitable. They managed to put up a pretty good vegetarian fare with Indian flavours for my wife.

    Anil2018-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 4 nights at Yonder Retreat and it’s was AMAZING!!! You have to take a 2-hour speedboat to Bodufolhudhoo. Still that 2 hour wait is totally worth it. The guesthouse is quite spacious with a beautiful garden. It’s located near a bikini beach with crystal clear water, beautiful coral reef and fishes. Also, they provide a lot of interesting excursions with reasonable price for you to choose. Regarding people, the staffs were very friendly and helpful. I would like to thank Sara, Rishwan, Coco, the chef and other guys for bringing us an unforgettable Maldivian experience. There are only some problems relating to poor wifi and late response of the host that I think you guys should improve to bring guests better satisfaction. Highly recommend for people!

  • We spent our honeymoon at Yonder and everything was perfect! The team is great! The food was delicious, and the chef was very nice with us. We went every day on excursions, snorkeling, fishing, cruiseing, it was really fun and a great experience ☺ Special thanks to Hussain for that, and for the great pictures he made. Everyone was so frendly, we felt like we stayed with our family there. Can't wait to see them again ☺

  • Mohamed took great care of us. He arranged our transport to and from Dhigurah. He made sure we had everything we needed. He was able to customize our breakfasts, and had them ready for us each morning after checking what time we wanted to eat. The room was very comfortable and clean. The bed was great! I would highly recommended staying there. We dove with Island Divers, who were also amazing! Really great people! We eventually met Ibrahim, who was very nice as well. He helped us find a hotel in Malé.

    Alexis2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice stay and very good guesthouse. Immediately made to feel welcome by Ibrahim and his colleague. Lovely breakfasts and went out of their way to organise a buggy to take us down to Long Beach. Would recommend.

    Adam2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • This accomodation was a very good value for the money. Spacious and clean. We enjoyed spending every single night and early morning at Ibrahim's place. Very satisfied with all the services that they have provided for us during our stay. We also had a lovely personal assistance, who looked after us. Prepared the breakfast and stuff. We liked Him very much. Such a nice caracter. [Take care! & We say hi to You from London! :) ] To book at this place, is an excellent opportunity to get to know a local maldivian life. Dhigurah itself also didn't let us down, such a wonderful piece of land in the middle of nowhere. In summary, it was a 5 star booking, nice vibe, awesome surroundings! We just wish that we could have had a chance to say "good bye" to Ibrahim. Best wishes from, Timi & Andy

    Timea2019-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • I had amazing stay at This guest house, Ibrahim arranged for me the transport from Male to Dhigurah and he also picked me up from the jetty which was much appreciated, at the house he welcome me with cool drink and afterward he showed me the restaurants and the shops around the island. The house is well located the bedroom is large and clean. Ibrahim was great host very helpful he arranged for me a trip to the local resorts he was very happy to give me tips about the island and he printed my boarding passes for my flight That was amazing. I highly recommend this guest house i would certainly come again.

    Abi2019-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accomodations and with a great tasting Maldivian breakfast included! Our host Ibrahim was very welcoming and made sure that our stay in Dhigurah was as smooth and enjoyable as possible. He booked transfer by speedboat from and to Male and notified their affiliate dive shop, island divers, of our arrival. He even picked us up and dropped us of by the harbour in Dhigurah with his electric scooter! The only downside is that the rooms aren't soundproof at all, so you can hear your neighbors talking or playing music, but it didn't bother us at all. Highly recommend dhivehi experience i dhigurah!

  • Ibrahim is a very friendly and helpful host. He owns 3 rooms in this little guesthouse. There’s a small outside area as well. It’s basic but what else do you need in paradise... the island is super small, there are three Café/ restaurants and a hotel restaurant close by. We had a very nice stay.

  • We spent 9 nights at Liberty and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff are great. Friendly, helpful, and there to provide suggestions or to help out. It's location on the island could not be better; they have a nice house reef for snorkeling, and a "bikini beach" which was also quite nice. Liberty also offered options for excursions for other things to do and see. We found them a bit pricey, but there's no pressure to do them. The food was great and plentiful, the rooms were clean, and the island itself was cool because it's non-private nature meant you had a chance to see more authentic Maldivean culture. We enjoyed walking around the village exploring different areas.

    Daniel2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect place to stay for people looking for a peaceful vecation. Waking up listening to the howling of sea and the sunshine falling straight to face by 6 am through the wide glass windows....enjoy the local life where u get to see men going for fishing in the morning...kids playing with sea shells and sand ...women gathering near the shore and having their gossip chats. Locals who are very friendly and welcoming . If you love fish then don't forget to mention it to the chef ...he will make it ready on ur table the way it's been told. You would love the early morning view. The 1 and half hour ferry ride is a great experience too. Also don't forget to book a private island tour. It's a worth spending of money too. We did deep sea snorkelling and scuba which was a great experience too but we had issues with our anti fog mask with water flooding inside (one used by my partner) which if sorted in hand would have made our experience much better. Overall it is a great place to stay. And zala and his team made sure that hospitality was maintained. Hence 5 stars and always recommendable

    Prithy2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very good stay at Liberty Guesthouse. Excellent check in and welcome with our bags being collected from the port. Very kind and attentive staff. Had breakfast and dinner at the on site restaurant and was very good and inexpensive. The snorkelling excursion we had was also really good fun.

    Adam2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Mahibadhoo is a nice island where you can explore and see for yourself what being a Maldivian is like. It is a small island as I have expected and I really enjoyed it. The meals provided at the guesthouse is affordable and tastes GREAT. I highly recommend the Tuna Kotthu and Tuna Curry. I haven't got to try a lot of stuff since I was only there for 3 nights. The tours are affordable if you manage to find a group to do it with. If budget is not your concern, then there will not be an issue. You can STILL choose what dive activities you would do... but at a much higher price. There is a reef directly in front of the guesthouse where you can swim, but I must mention that the corals at the beachfront may be a little nasty to navigate and wade through. There is extremely good value to be found here at Liberty guesthouse and great personalities. I do not dare to say it is the best choice but I'm sure it is one that will not disappoint. :) I would like to highlight 2 staff that made an impression on me: Fruity and Ibrahim. Fruity entertains and provide re-assurance about safety to people on the tour. Ibrahim provides great service with a friendly attitude.

    Aason2019-04-28T00:00:00Z

    Isabelle2019-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • I can definitely recommend Liberty Guest House, the staff is very well informed and helpful, all you need to do is ask. Also located on the lovely little local Island of Mahibadhoo - with a great view of the beach.

    Asta2019-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • It's a nice and clean guesthouse. The team is super friendly and helpful. It is a small local Island with less tourist. It's also gut for single traveller.

  • Guesthouse collection, divided into a central body and three rooms overlooking the patio where meals are taken. Five minutes from bikini beach and marinas. Magnificent trips can be booked almost every day. Super cuisine, pasta with nothing to envy to the Italian one. The staff and the owner, Amir, are very kind and available for every need and chat. The rooms are cleaned every day, with change of beach towels and towels every two days; except for Friday, the day of prayer for Muslims, where activities at the guesthouse are rightly reduced: Overall very beautiful and enriching experience.

    Rossana2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Everything from the start to end of the trip was perfectly organized by Mr. Amir. He was very accessible at all times. Helped us plan our local excursions like sand bank, picnic island, Dolphin sighting, night fishing , snorkeling. Our guide Mr. Habib made sure we have an amazing experience, be it while snorkeling in sand bank and picnic island or while night fishing or while sighting hundreds of Dolphins in the deep sea. And Mr. Ismail made sure housekeeping and dining was on time. Special thanks to Mr. Amir for the surprise candle light dinner which made our night lot more beautiful. We felt very satisfied and worthy of our stay at Asia Inn. Definitely, looking forward to going back again.

    Kushal2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Mr. Amir is a natural host. We had been given much better services than our expectations. We have recommended this resort to our family and will do to anyone who is looking for a beautiful island to themselves.

    Nikhil2019-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 1,5 weeks at Asia Inn guesthouse and truly enjoyed every minute of it. Amir and his team offer great service and heartfelt hospitality. Amir considered us as his friends and made us feel at home. The guesthouse also offers excursions like dolphin watching, snorkeling, trips to smaller islands etc. But the bikini beach nearby the guesthouse is picturesque as well :) We would recommend booking lunch and dinner at Asia Inn as a) its delicious (pasta, salads, and maldevian fish dishes) and b) there are limited food options on the island. The guesthouse is true to the uploaded pictures, its nicely designed, our room had an outside shower and it has a communal/eating area. All in all: highly recommend!

    Maria2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best hotel on the island, very clean, staff very welcoming, pleasant, attentive, we did not miss anything. The meals are delicious and of very good quality, very varied. Amir was an exceptional host, he considered us as his friends, and that's what sets him apart from the other gesthouses on the island. He has experience and adapts the stay according to his guests. The staff is just perfect, kind, helpful and very friendly. Ismael is very fast, discreet, his service is irreproachable. The island is calm, welcoming, the beach is beautiful, a real dream. Thanks you for all.

    Lemaini2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Upon my arrival to Asia Inn, I was greeted with unmatched hospitality. Amir and his staff were amazing !!!! All I had to do was ask for something and it was provided to me. The beds are super comfy and the food was a delightful mix of traditional Maldivian and Italian favourites. My main goal on this island was snorkelling and I was never disappointed. From swimming with sharks and rays to the water temperature, everything was perfect. Asia Inn is a 6 minute walk to the popular “bikini” beach but there are numerous beaches to enter the water and explore a world teaming with life. Amir and his team also offer many different excursions including wild dolphin watching, deep sea fishing and spending a day on a different isolated islands (lunch included👍🏽). The island doesn’t offer any alcohol so it’s very family friendly as well. Thank you so much to Amir and his amazing staff

    Geza2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Such incredible value! I highly recommend Asia Inn - it is by far the most stylish and modern of all guesthouses on the island. Amir was incredibly helpful in making us feel comfortable on the island, meeting every need and providing those important little things free of charge - snorkels, fins, bottles of cold water, cable tv with two movie channels, a fridge + bottles of water in your room, a kettle + coffee and tea in your room - At Asia Inn Amir takes care of you! An example - there was a 4-year old child who was picky eater and apparently only ever ate chicken so Amir ensured there was always chicken for the boy. Many guesthouses on the island do not understand tourism or the expectations of guests and mercilessly charge guests for every tiny little thing once you are under their roof. Unlike the other guesthouses, Amir's decades in the tourism industry are apparent. Amir ensures your needs are met with five-star service and no additional charges - all you need to do is relax. Truly amazing guesthouse - such tremendous value. Highly recommended.

    Andrea2019-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The communication was excellent and was the element that led us to choose Asia Inn. We immediately felt in good hands and the reception confirmed us. The room was cleaned and tidied every day, we were provided the beach towels and the breakfast was great. The asia inn team proved to be available for all our requests.

    Chani Hardy2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    Daniel2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, excellent communication via email, beautiful bikini beach and delicious food. Overall we enjoyed the stay.

    Martina2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 2 weeks at the Nemo Inn and the time there was more than great. Moosa and his brothers tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. There is a restaurant where they offer lunch and dinner (and off course breakfast). First we wanted to eat at different places but it turned out, that they prepare very delicious meals and so we stayed ;). Not to forget the view from the terrace where the meals are taken (coffee and tee for free all the time). After dinner we sometimes sat on the rooftop and watched the sky while listening to the ocean. There is a dive center nearby (good boat, good guides, also very friendly and recommended) where we did a lot of diving. The rest of the day was spent on the beach. There is a very nice (compared to other islands) bikini-beach (less than 10 min walk, at the end passing through a very green area) . They offered to bring umbrellas but we chose the natural shadow close to the bikini-beach (take care to dress adequately there). On New Years Eve they (Moosa and his brothers) prepared a dinner/event on that beach for all of their guests and they put a lot of work on preparing. Thanks once more for this great evening! In summary: great, clean and friendly place - we will come back to the Nemo Inn by sure! Highly recommended!

    Peter2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful holiday in Omahdoo island in the Nemo Inn guest house. The owners, Moosa and his brothers are very kind, the view on the sea from the restaurant is perfect for the breakfast. The guest house has also a good restaurant. They have a private bikini beach where snorkeling is very nice. We recommend also the tours, the bests are: desert island, Manta and While shark tour. The whale shark tour is quite expensive, but we had the opportunity to swim with a whale shark, we swam together for at least 2 minutes, a unique experience. If you like sustainable holidays, and to know the Maldivian culture, Nemo Inn and Omahdoo is the right place.

    Patrizia2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Nemo inn is really such a nice place with friendly staff always willing to assist us in anything we needed. Moosa is a great host who arranged everything for us. From receiving us at the airport making sure we are on the correct speedboat after he made the booking for us. Great food at the Nemo inn restaurant. I recommend Nemo inn as a must if wanting to experience the local island of Omadhoo. Thank you for hosting us.

    Gregory2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Moosa and Nemo Inn! Staff was kind and helpful, Nemo Inn was clean and cozy. We enjoyed staying in Omadhoo, the atmosphere was wonderful in this island.

  • Abdulla made our stay at himandhoo unforgettable! He took us with his boat to many excursions and we really loved it:beautiful sand bank, lonley desert island and beautiful snorkeling spots. Defently recommended! Himandhoo is very religious and there is no tourism at all. Right next to the guesthouse is a really good and cheep restaurant. The guesthouse is 50 m away from the bikini beach which is well prepared. Abdulla is very kind, he knows a good English and give you a lot of good information. Thanks for having us! Coming back for sure! Elisa e Patric

  • We booked here and were warmly welcomed by Mala’s employees. However, then we were transferred to another place - Bayan Villa - because Mala was full. Bayan was 3 minutes walk away, it’s quite a new little hotel with 5 rooms. Our room was really nice, big enough, very clean, AC perfectly working, we had fridge, employees were very nice, quick and smiling. We were supposed to have meals in Mala Boutique (10 USD pro person pro meal, no water or other drinks included). We really liked the ambient there because the tables are put literally on the beach. However, we had only two meals there when we decided to stop eating there because we were frustrated that we had to fight for the food. It’s a buffet style of service and they bring all the food in the beginning and when it’s gone - it’s gone! So you have to come early, but still there’s a battle. For breakfast there were no more toasts and there was only one pancake left when we arrived 10 minutes after beginning of the breakfast, so we asked for some. They brought us two toasts for each of us. To avoid “food fights” and “time battle” three times a day we decided to eat in a local restaurant instead, which was 5 minutes away from Bayan villa (Hawaee foods) and we were very satisfied there (amazing Maldivian breakfast for 3 USD, yummy local mains for 4-6 USD). We would recommend Mala boutique to bring more food when something’s gone and as it’s said that a meal is available within a certain time-frame (for example breakfast 7.30-9.00), I would recommend you to have all the foods available during this time. Mala boutique works closely together with the diving center - we went for a few dives and snorkeling. Unfortunately we didn’t see the wale shark, but still we had a wonderful day and got some amazing underwater photos! The price for one dive is 75 USD, if you do more than 6 dives, the price goes slowly down. Communication with Hassan was perfect, but we never met him in person as he lives on another island as we heard. We had a very good time and we can recommend Dhangheti to everyone! :)

  • Well, for me and my wife, the trip was memorable right till the end. Though Hassan had some confusions in the beginning that I had booked for Maafushi Island and he quoted me excursion and transfer prices per that Island; however, post realizing, he was considerate enough to offer excursion prices in Dhangethi Island at the rate . What I loved about Mala Boutique: Hosts: The communication was effortless and well managed, Ali was there to pick us up at the Airport, helped us with local SIM and showed us around Male as he was a local guide. He even spotted few Mantas for us near the vegetable market and got us to board the speed boat. At the listing the roles were quite neatly cut out: Shon: He was the care taker and made sure that all the necessary amenities were available for us. We were carrying heavy luggage, he got it transported to our listing Ali: The cook made some lip smacking delicacies and was always asking for feedback to make his preparations better. Breakfast used to be the same for all the days; however, lunch and dinner were mostly continental or Maldivian cuisines/ curries Saalley: This guy was a revelation. He was the instructor appointed for us for all the excursions be it Manta, Turtle or Sandbank Snorkeling, Dolphin/ Tuna Spotting or Island hopping. He was patient to the core, knew what he was doing, took some breathtaking pictures (even of a Shark up close) - He kinda made all our days memorable. The room at the listing was comfortable with powerful AC's. The cleaning crew were considerate enough to leave the AC's on post cleaning so that we came back to a comfortable and cool room after spending time getting tanned at the bikini beach. About Dangethi Island: Firstly, please don't consider it as a luxurious Resort island as you are not paying for that but the excursions and the hosting/ human connect that Mala boutique offers is at par with them. The Island was around 100 kms away from Male and life is quite lazy here. You get a lot of privacy. Locals will always smile at you and will not ever enforce or solicit anything. There are some souvenir shops on the island which can be explored. You can explore the whole island on foot in an hour - also try it without foot-wears - you'll find white sand not only in the beach but on the streets as well Also locals don't come to bikini beach, you are entitled to complete privacy there. Things to cross-check before arriving & the opportunities: - Always keep a mosquito repellent - Its a tropical island, you'll find them everywhere and they are quite adamant on sucking your blood and you can easily kill them in the act as they prefer foreign blood over dying - Goes without saying, keep a good Sunscreen (SPF 50 on you) a Sun hat or if possible a wet suite. - Respect the local laws and culture as women are supposed to wear clothes that covers their Shoulder and knees - Though, in our short stay, we never saw this rule getting imposed on anyone but we still followed it out of respect to local customs. - Variety can be brought in the breakfast I can't think of any other opportunities as I was busy collecting memories and I took truck loads of them back home - Thanks to you guys.

  • We really enjoyed our stay while here! The communication, transportation, room cleanliness, food, hospitality and amenities/excursions were great. Ali provided exceptional service while we were there and Alham was a phenomenal dive guide! Alham was very knowledgeable about the area and routes we dove which made each dive a comfortable and exciting one. Everyone here was also so friendly, even the service provided on the boat during excursions was great. The island itself was very peaceful and beautiful, especially the sunsets. We will certainly be recommending this spot to friends/family and hope to return again in the future!

    Joy2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • I would 100% recommend staying here. The room was spacious and clean. The staff were amazing, would do anything for you and were so attentive. We also had a fantastic time with the South Ari Dive team who were professional and fun. We had an unforgettable holiday snorkelling and enjoying Dhangethi and we cannot wait to book again for next summer.

    Rosaria2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Hassan’s place was perfect for our stay. Lovely room and good air con with a great breakfast on the beach. Helped organise our whale shark snorkel which was amazing. Great stay and would recommend.

    Adam2019-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely incredible time in Dhangethi thanks to the Mala/Banyan staff. Getting to Dhangethi was no problem thanks to Hassan and Madeeh who arranged our speed boat transfer for us. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Madeeh with a warm welcome. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean with a modern bathroom; we could not have asked for better accommodations. Meals through the property were all buffet style, offering a decent amount of options and the food was great. We booked our excursions through the Mala/Banyan group and enjoyed every second of our whale shark, snorkeling and sand bar adventures. The staff was extremely accommodating and always had smiles on their faces; we truly felt like we were immediate friends with everyone there. The island itself is small and quiet and the locals are extremely friendly and welcoming. We were sad to leave but cannot thank Madeeh, Hassan, Shalley, Martino, Ali and the rest of the Mala/Banyan staff enough for making our stay one we will never forget. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and were enjoying our time on Dhangethi. I HIGHLY recommend this property and would definitely stay there again. We hope to return and see all of our friends there in the future.

    A boutique hotel on a local Maldivian island. My partner Anne and I are avid travelers ourselves and made a place that we ourselves would stay at. Despite being on a local island, we make our own fresh bread, ice cream, pizzas, etc. We also have cozy tech friendly rooms (lots of power sockets, USB plugs, fast WiFi). We also arrange excursions for the area so whether it's water sports, scuba diving, island hopping or fishing, we got your back!
    Bliss Dhigurah is a 15 room guest house on the gorgeous local island Dhigurah in South Ari Atoll. We're right by the South Ari Marine Protected Area (SAMPA), which is home to whale sharks, mantas and other mega fauna. This is for our family room.
    Dhigurah is a popular destination even among the locals. It literally means "long island" and is famous for the sand bank at the tip of the island. We also are lucky to have a wooded area whereas most inhabited Maldivian islands are more urbanized.
  • We took the local boat from Jetty 1 Male (though I think you can get a pick-up from the airport). It took just over 2 hours by speed boat. We were met on arrival and taken the sort distance to the “hotel”. Everyone at Bliss was friendly and welcoming. The accommodation is functional and bright with an excellent roof terrace. The attached Restuarant served varied and tasty food - breakfast included. The beach close by was beautiful, with excellent snorkelling (equipment provided for $5 per day). By far the best thing though were the excursions - we swam with Whale Sharks and Manta Rays (both awesome), caught (and had cooked for us) tuna and barracuda and swam with an incredible range of beautiful fish (Bliss provided in advance their price list which allowed me to pick / budget). There is not a lot to do in the evening on this “dry island” but the range of options during the day more than made up for this. We are looking to go again next year.

  • Look no further! You have found Bliss! This chic small hotel has everything you need for a great holiday in the Maldives and the beach and island are absolutely stunning! The hosts, Anne, Musannif and their staff are delightful, attentive, great with kids and have shown us some of the best hospitality we’ve ever had! The decor and vibes are superb, the areas to hang out and relax are comfy, breakfasts are varied and delicious and the restaurant serves great coffee and lots of comfort foods. We stayed for 11 nights and the room setup was perfect for us and our 2 daughters. The excursions and water sports offered seemed to also be good value compared to other Maldives locations. We’d come back in a heartbeat!

    Marianne2019-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We really had a great time. Good location, beautiful Island. Great hospitality and service provide by Anne & Mussanif. Special thanks to their team from reception, cafe (food was great) and tour guides for their attentiveness towards our wellbeing during our stay.

    Mohd Noor2018-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a clean, modern place to stay where location and service are of paramount importance, look no further. Anne and Musannifs place is just as described, if not better, due to the attentive staff and their willingness to make you feel at home. Nothing was too much to ask and everyone went out of their way to ensure we were well taken care of. The location is perfect; not too far from town and right around the corner from the beach, which was often deserted. Make sure you eat at the in-house restaurant, the food is fresh and flavorful and the daily breakfast kept us full until lunch. Thanks Anne and Mussanif and the entire staff at Bliss for making our first trip to the Maldives memorable. It certainly won’t be the last :)
