The resort's boat picked us up from the seaplane meeting point and we were instantly greeted with a welcome drink. Laura gave us an intro to the resort and the room. Each member of the resort staff was very responsive and pleasant at all times. The food was amazing in its assortment, particularly at lunch and dinner. The onsite diving center, Albatros Top Diving, was staffed with people that care about your experience. Anna and Ali were our dive instructor and dive master and made sure we saw as much as possible while we were diving. The accommodations were lovely, comfortable, and clean. It really was paradise and I cannot wait to return.
This was my first time in Maldives and Chaaya reef Ellaidhoo made it a memorable one. The beach was awesome, the staff were exceptionally friendly, food was great and the rooms was upto expectations. Will definitely recommend it to anyone and will love to come back. The stay at the water villa was a very memorable one. Enjoyed the sand, beach and the sea a lot.
"NICE HOTEL CLOSE TO THE BEACH AND RESTAURANT & BAR"
THE GUNBARU INN WAS A VERY COMFORTABLE CHEAP HOTEL TO STAY IN BY MALDIVE STANDARDS AND CLOSE TO A NICE BEACH + OPPOSITE A PHARMACY.
IT SERVED A GOOD BREAKFAST AND THE ROOM WAS ALWAYS WELL SUPPLIED WITH MUCH NEEDED TWO BOTTLES OF WATER A DAY A LOVELY SATALITE T.V SERVICE.
THE MANAGER AND HIS TWO CO-WORKERS WERE VERY FREINDLY AND HELPFUL AND ARRANGED GOOD SIMPLE ISLAND HOPPING EXCURTIONS FOR ME + NIGHT FISHING AND ABOVE ALL VISTING AND DINING AT A NEIGHBORING FAMILY HOME.
"Staff is very attentive and helps you with any req"
Arrived on Thursday, hotel owner meets you at the port and takes you to the guest house. Fairly new rooms after the updates and conversion to lodging. Av works well, hot water not a problem in the shower. Food is good, although you may have to order in advance by a day if they need to catch the fish or similar. Wifi works ok, sometimes the server for the island goes down. I went diving and boating with the tours and excursions offered. Had them arrange a seaplane for my departure. Very nice stay.
Ukulhas Inn is a standard hotel on a local island. The rooms are simple but spacious and the breakfast is delicious (try the local options). The staff are helpful in arranging trips and the ferry ride over to the island. If you want a budget trip, it's a good option. It's a very quiet island but the beach is nice and you can wear a bikini and swim. They can arrange a variety of activities and a dive shop will open on the island soon. At the moment, diving is possible but expensive as it's run from the neighbouring island. Restaurants on the island are limited, so lunches and dinners are pretty basic.
Although a popular tourism region, North Ari Atoll is certainly not overly developed. Dive operations are run by all resorts, with some catering particularly to the advanced diver. To the north east is Rasdhoo Island with its Buddhist heritage, quaint village, and deep sea medical centre. Hammerhead sharks may often be seen offshore on the outer reef. “Fish Head”, one of the world’s most famous dive sites, is located further south.
