Good accommodation and great value for money

Cozy restaurant with sea views, lovely staff and great location.
The staff was very polite and Said the owner was very interesting to talk to about Maledives in general. We liked the location of the hotel and its feel. Rooms were spacious and TV was good. In general it is probably one of the best options in the island and great value for money. It is a pity that the public beach is rather poorly kept, real pity :( because the island could attract many more tourists. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Truly affordabale Maldives

Location - access to snorkeling and fun excursions, Affordable SUP & kayak rentals, culture & staff
I once googled "cheap Maldives vacation" which yielded rooms starting at $350/night. I fortunately heard of the Rip Tide Vacation Inn through word of mouth. I have returned numerous times with family and friends. With surfing, snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding, and kayaking, there's something for everyone. It's great to have access to all these things at such a prime location and at 10 - 20% the cost of most resorts.
