Simple room for 1 night staying
Maafushi is not so big, so location is far from the bikini beach, but 10 minutes walking and you are there. Room is clean. There was 2 small bottles of water. Furniture is simple and old, but with conditioner, fridge and hot water at shower. Staff is friendly, but the reception is at Arena Sky, so as breakfast (rice, beans, chicken, papaya, oranges, watermelons, cornflakes with milk, toasts with jam and honey, tea and coffee), at Lodge there is only laundry for Arena Beach, Sky and Lodge. There are few cafes and shop near Lodge. Thanks to Arena, they give us one night staying at Arena Beach as upgrade for our wedding anniversary. Маафуши не такой большой остров, и хотя пляж для купания в бикини достаточно далеко, до него можно дойти за 10 минут. Комната чистая. Были 2 маленькие бутылочки воды. Мебель простая и старая, но есть кондиционер, холодильник и горячая вода в душе. Персонал приветливый, но ресепшн находится в Арене Скай, как и завтрак (рис, фасоль, курица, папайя, апельсины, арбузы, хлопья с молоком, тосты с джемом и медом, чай и кофе), в Лодже есть только прачечная для Арены Бич, Скай и Лодж. Рядом есть несколько кафе и магазинов. Благодарим Арену за апгрейд нашего номера в Лодж на номер с видом на море в Арене Бич на годовщину нашей свадьбы.

Upgraded to Arena Beach Hotel - FOC
I was flabbergasted to be upgraded for free of charge to their Arena Beach Hotel! Thanks to Rasheed and their General Manager, Mr M. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating. The receptionist, Jerry is informative and great to chat with. Arena Beach Hotel is just a stone away to the beach where you can wear bikini. You can also ask for excursion packages, their rates are really reasonable and competitive. They are reliable and very sincere, they refunded me for one of the excursions that we're not able to do due to bad weather. I stayed 4 nights there and it was fun and memorable. I will definitely be back again and this hotel is highly recommended!

Great Accommodation
From the accommodations, to the staffs and the excursions we've had were totally over the top. We have enjoyed our stay in Maldives. Our island experience was more than overwhelming. June is a birth month of my sister and I and it was just great that we chose to spend it in Maldives. Would love to visit and stay in this place again whenever we plan to visit the Maldives. Plus the food by the way were sumptuous.... and we love the dinner by the beach too!

OK but....
On an island can feel that you are isolated and that is what we felt like for the wrong reasons. Beach was piled with 10 metres high of sand ? why we didn't know. One beach was active and was very good. Not much else to do other than swim and sunbathe and eating places were limited so we ate in the Arena Beach Hotel most nights. Had a lunch that for some reason or another gave me food poisoning? Overall 5 nights of relaxing and not much more. Other than this the island is looking to revamp itself so it may become more of a tourist place in years to come but it needs to go a long way to become an attraction.

Arena beach hotel
Instead of staying in area lodge, the staff arranged us to stay in Arena beach hotel due to the construction near arena lodge according to their staff. Everything was great there from service to food options. Don't miss out the activities the hotel offers. We tried night fishing and snorkeling half day trip, those activities for sure are the highlights of my entire Maldives trip
