I had a few days holiday while working in Malaysia and decided to explore the Maldives. Great place to get to know the Islands without committing to a resort for several days. The owner arranged trips to different islands each day and I was able to see what different resorts had to offer. The owner and his staff did a great job making my stay comfortable and fun. Best place to stay to get to know the islands for a few days.
For people who usually stay in 2 to 3 star hotels, Kaani Beach Hotel on Maafushi is for you. It gives you the opportunity to visit different resorts every day. Staff at reception will organise that for you on daily basis. Kaani Beach Hotel uses its own speed boats at a reasonable cost. You are then required to pay an entry fee at the resort to use their facilities and it usually includes lunch. In this order, I recommend 1. Kandooma Holiday Inn, 2. Rihiveli Resort and 3. Fahilhohi Resort. By doing as I have suggested so far, as a tourist, you get it good from both worlds. Firstly, you stay on a village island at a reasonable cost for accommodation and during the day, you can enjoy a resort style facilities and only pay an entry fee which vary from place to place. For breakfast and dinner, Kaani Beach Hotel provides good local meals at a cheap price.
great people, tidy environment, all the staff are very kind and lovely which made us HOME. Also a wonderful place to meet like-minded tourists, share experiences and making friends. We enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend to all!
We received a lovely warm welcome, a great relaxing holiday we were upgraded upon arrival to a lovely room with sea view. As we were on honeymoon we came back to find our room beautifully decorated for us, what a lovely romantic thing to do. The staff were excellent, nothing was any bother to them. We had evening meals at hotel a few nights, but wished we had eaten there more as the food was lovely. They should advertise outside that they do meals and hopefully get some of the passing trade. Definately stay there again.
