    The lowest price we can find on the island ”

    The room is simple with AC, facilities is okay. The waiter asked if we wanted to have orange juice for breakfast but without letting know it costs 4 or 5 USD. When we asked why the waiter didn't bring the can one(which is free according to what they said at the end), instead of gave us fresh juice but not telling the price, they only said because the waiter's English is not good. So be aware of this, not a big money but definitely feeling disappointed. Another thing is, I booked breakfast and dinner combo on agoda because there's discounts, but at the end agoda booked the room by through booking.com, so we ended up not having any discount and pay for the dinner(10USD per person). I would recommend the local restaurant nearby, they have reasonably price for food!

    An authentic Maldivian holidays”

    Nice place with friendly staff. They have been very helpful from Male all the way to the Inn. The place was clean and right next to the ocean and the bikini beach. Although the island is small (a 15 min walk to go around) and doesn’t propose much choice when it comes to restaurants (or ATM - none at the time we were there), it is well located for nice diving nearby. The corals at the bikini beach have suffered from El Nino and are slowly recovered but excursions give you plenty to see and Mala has plenty to offer in that area. Would definitely recommend for a few days trip to discover another Maldives away from the big resort and a bit more authentic. Special mention to the chef who managed to put together very nice dish and the staff in general who have been contributing to the overall great experience over there!

    Lovely guesthouse with amazing bikini beach”

    Mala Boutique Inn is lovely small guesthouse with nice simple rooms and really kind and helpful staff. New linen, towels and beach towels are provided every day. Hotel offers also dining services so you don't need to search for food outside as the meals are very tasty. Trips to different islands, snorcheling, manta/turtle/whalesharks are also available for the same price as outside hotel so don't hesitate explore Maldives with another kind man from hotel staff named Sale. We have nothing to complain about as we have been 100% happy with everything. Bikini beach is few steps from the hotel and most of the time you are there alone as the island does not host so many people. In the sea you can easily see baby sharks, small rays and turtles so rent a paddleboard and explore the area! Please note that Mala Boutique Inn is a guesthouse not resort so don't 5* hotel services. Rooms are simple but nice and clean, food is delicious but you can choose just from two meals (basically fish and chicken). The island Dhangethi is for those traveleres seeking the real Maldives and not fake world of resort. Anyway sea is not nice on the other side and turtles look the same both on Dhangethi bikini beach and the resort beach. Support local community and visit this tiny island in the middle of Indian Ocean :).

    Si è no”

    Positivo: pulizia, cambio lenzuola e asciugamani ogni 2 giorni, buona posizione, gentilezza Negativo: pasti cari, meglio i ristoranti sull'isola. Cattiva organizzazione in spiaggia, pochi lettini e non riconoscibili..

    Una vacanza indimenticabile”

    Sono stata al Mala Boutique Inn con la mia famiglia dal 1 al 11 Gennaio 2018. La guesthouse è carina e pulita, il personale molto gentile e disponibile, siamo stati seguiti dallo sbarco fino a fine soggiorno. La cucina è ottima e il titolare è riuscito a soddisfare ogni nostra esigenza in quanto ad escursioni: visti squalo balena, mante, tartarughe, squali e migliaia di pesci colorati. La bikini beach è da sogno e l'isola e la gente di Dhangethi vi rimarrà nel cuore. Consiglio questa guesthouse a chi vuole vivere le Maldive vere e non quelle artificiali di un resort. Una vacanza indimenticabile. Ci tornerò sicuramente.

    Отличный отдых!”

    У отеля отличное расположение! Если вам нужно уединение, чистейший пляж с белым песком и лазурной спокойной водой выбирайте этот отель, не пожалеете! Очень красиво! Намного красивее, чем на картинках. Отдых был тихим, спокойным, как и планировался. Персонал очень дружелюбный, ненавязчивый, вежливый. Убирали, и по требованию. В номере все работает, чисто, никаких насекомых. Я получила невероятное удовольствие и наслаждение, приехав сюда! Созерцать подобную красоту, окунуться в островную жизнь, полностью абстрагироваться от своей реальной жизни в шумном мегаполисе и в результате полностью переродиться - это того стоило! Все нервы и стресс - обнулились. Спасибо за прекрасный отдых персоналу и сервису Агода, буду пользоваться ещё вашими услугами. з.ы. Еда всегда была вкусной, аккуратно и чисто приготовленной.

    bardzo miły hotel polecam”

    Bardzo miły kameralny hotel. Największy atut to lokalizacja przy samym oceanie. Posiłki w zależności od pogody są podawane nad wodą lub w ogrodzie. Obsługa bardzo sympatyczna i pomocna. mieszkańcy wyspy bardzo serdeczni i towarzyscy. Czuliśmy się tam jak w domu. Wyspa bardzo piękna. Blisko do bikini beach oraz do lokalnej plaży z mnóstwem hamaków i ławek w cieniu, co jest bardzo ważne w słoneczne dni. Plusem jest też prysznic ze słodką wodą na plaży. Wyspa jest idealna do uprawiania windsurfingu i kitesurfingu. Jako minus mogę tylko podać że wyposażenie pokojów jest dosyć skromne. Brakuje porządnej szafy na ubrania.
