The Best choice in Maafushi

Pirce, Staff, Services
Simply low price, reasonable service, go Arena lodge or sky Not expensive price but more than lodge or sky, the best location in Maafushi, go Arena beach. Most of all, every staff is so kind.

Best accommodation with the best staff

staff, value for money, accommodation
We are a group of 3 ladies who intially booked our hotel at Arena Lodge but got upgraded to Arena Beach Hotel as a surprise of the management for my birthday. The Arena Lodge itself is already lovely since we were the only guests in the lodge when we arrived. It felt like we own the whole place. We slept there on our first night. The following morning, a staff from Arena Beach fetched us to transfer us to the bigger and better hotel as a surprise of the hotel manager, Mr. Mussah, for my birthday. The whole staff especially Mussah and Ibrahim are the nicest hotel staff you will ever meet. More than the c

First, they failed to pick us up at the port. Second, they informed us that they are not aware of our booking (how could that be possible?!). This our biggest disappointment. In addition, they failed to accomodate us for the 1st and 2nd day of our stay as their rooms are all occupied, they transferred us to Horizon View which is by the way has a much better condition that Arena Lodge. All in all it was a good stay and was a great deal on our end.

The Best Customer Service in Maafushi

Customer Service, Staff are very friendly, Facilities
Upon arriving at Maafushi, we were greeted by the staff and accompanied us to the lodge. But unfortunately, the room we booked was under renovation and they gave us a room for 1 night to a nearby newly built lodge. As a way to recover for the minor inconvenience, they gave us a room upgrade with a beach view in their Arena Hotel. The customer service was superb. All the staff were very courteous and will really go beyond to serve the guests. They also offer resort excursions and island trips that are well facilitated. If you want to have a perfect stay in Maafushi, then I suggest you book your stay with either Arena Lodge or Arena Beach. Highly recommended!

Excellent Service & Value for Money

The staff are so accomodating and friendly. It's truly a value for money because of it's great service and clean room (including the bedsheets).
Very Satisfied! My only negative feedback would be the boiled egg which tasted like been cooked couple of days ago.
