This is my second stay here in the last two months and the reason I went back was because it truly is the nicest and most modern hotel on the island hands down. If you dont mind paying extra it is worth it! Both aveyla and lvis are also near but they are not nearly as fancy but are priced similarly. I love everything about this hotel from the staff, the breakfast to the comfortable plush bed. I can not fault hotel and it is exceptional in everything except for ONE NEGATIVE thing. This time we came the property is renting their jetski directly in front of their hotel beach/house reef. Everyone on the island snorkels along this reef. There are children dangerously riding fast up and down the close to the reef on that jetski. What will hapen when a tourist gets hit? Who will be responsible? You really need to buoy off the area if you want to rent jetskis, one for swimming one for riding. That is common sense for safety. Everyone snorkeling now has to constantly look out for their safety. Ruins the entire experience. Not to mention on my last stay I saw a whale shark at this reef right off the beach, needless to say it will never happen again with all this commotion.

Had a great time staying here on our 4 day trip to dharavandhoo. The hotel is modern and clean. The beds are very comfortable and soft, the bathtubs are large and grand. Due to cloudy weather the tv reception is in and out most of the day. I experience this on most trips i take to the Maldives even on private island resorts so not their fault. We were on a half board option because we were usually doing a daytrip tour every day on the island. The breakfast always had great omelet and potatoes of some sort that changed daily as well as several other dishes and fruit. Coffee was available so was nice to start our morning trips. The food here was better than most local islands I have stayed at. The staff was exceptional from checkin to checkout. Location is right on bikini beach with the best snorkeling right in front of the hotel. Aside from our hanifaru bay trips we had the pleasure of seeing a whale shark right on the hotel house reef only 20 meters from the beach. We are coming back soon for the culmination of manta season and will definitely be staying here for part of our Maldivian travels.

I loved my stay at Kiha Beach Hotel. The hotel and beach were actually a lot nicer than I expected. I highly recommend this hotel. I will also put a video of the hotel on youtube so everyone can get a sense of how nice this hotel is from a guest's point of view. It really is the best hotel on Dharavandhoo. It is the only hotel that is on the Bikini Beach that has an extremely nice beach with soft sand which is ideal for enjoying the weather and water. There are other hotels that say they are on the beach but actually only have a small area that does not have soft sand or ideal for lounging/ enjoying the beach. I watched as guests from other hotels walk past the property so they could enjoy a public beach because their own hotels did not have a nice beach area. So don't let other hotels on Dharavandhoo trick you with faked out photos or advertising. The hotel rooms and bathroom is extremely airy and spacious. The ocean view rooms with decks are awesome. The warm pool attached to the lobby is nice and clean. The staff are very nice and helpful. The owner is present most of the time and super friendly. The maid service is fantastic. The rooms were impeccably cleaned everyday. I wish I went for the full or half board option because the chef and service looked really nice. I did not pick those options because of previous reviews that said negative things about the food at the hotel. There is a new chef now so go for the full or half board options.
