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

Felt like home

Staff, Food, Cleanliness
Sadly when i reached Maafushi, it was raining heavily! And sadly noone came to pickup. But i was greeted by a staff from Sun Tan Beach hotel, he then helped me to call up Arena Lodge's manager to come over (YES very nice of this guy name Musa a staff from SunTan Beach Hotel!) And to my surprise, the A.L Mgr is also Musa! (i think its a common name in Maldives?) You got to walk quite a distance, but its still fine though, after all Maafushi is small. Here comes the best part of Arena Lodge. Checkin was not a problem, fast and hassle-free. The Manager Mr Musa was pleasant overall and all the staffs too. BEST staff i MUST say goes to Mr Ibrahim! He's EXTREMELY nice! That man, is BRILLIANT! Service-oriented, attentive, detailed, a cook, attentive, oh gosh he's the BEST! Ask him anything and he will DEFINITELY help you! Great experience. Nice breakfast. But reception is not 24hrs. Overall is fine. Aircon works VERY well, also with the ceiling fan. They clean your room everyday. I truly felt like home.
