Great staff, nice cute hotel, very friendly relaxing atmosphere ”
Cute small hotel with great friendly staff who truly want you to experience The Maldives. The island is 70 min away from the airport by speed boat and great for diving. The hotel can organise the activities for you if you like. Overall 10 out of 10. The staff are awesome:)

Just like home”
It was really nice experience at banana residence. All staff and especially Adam was very helpful, humble and nice. Breakfast was up to mark. Room was clean, big and nice with all basic facilities. The island trip arranged by banana residence was wonderful experience at very reasonable charges. Everything was best and I can conclude it simply by their logo that's so true that 'come as a guest and leave as family' :) thumbs up

The place is closed and under construction ”
you still can make reservation online in many different websites, but when you get there they take you to the Shallow lagoon guest house and tell you that Banana Residence is closed. and they can place you in another guest house, which is a small accomodation behind the Cafe Ole, called Cafe Ole Ramoli. it is a place with 4 double rooms, a small garden, clean and new. but the owner is the same owner as the Cafe ole and he is very rude. 1 night the guests in other rooms from Indonesia were very loud until 2 am, so I finally nicely asked them to keep it down. the next another guest also mentioned this to the owner. The Indonesians however, complained to the owner. Until that day the owner was very nice, said hi every day and asked if everything is ok. But suddenly after the complaint by Indonesians owner fully ignored me and the other guest.

Misleading Website”
I research my accommodation very carefully before making a choice. The Banana Residence on the website shows block one. If you are accommodated in the newer block two, you will be sadly misled. Block two consists of 6-8 inward facing rooms which are dingy and airless. It is extremely noisy as all rooms lead onto an echoing corridor. Neither the TV or Wifi were working although staff made plans for us to use neighboring guesthouse wifi. Staff were VERY relaxed. No housekeeping whatsoever in three days ( apparently in was a holiday period in the Maldives ) Breakfast ranged from really good to utterly horrible, you have no say in this, you get what you get. Rashdoo itself was good although tour prices on the high side. We landed up organizing our own thing as the guesthouse staff could not provide what we wanted - needless to say at the fraction of the going cost. Take a paddle out to the unfortunately filthy picnic island, the reef there is amazing.

Good location, nice breakfast”
Pros: good location, nice Maldivian breakfast, good tours, nice hot shower, free water and tea. Cons: staff were not at reception 24/7 to assist, wifi and tv were not functioning during most of our visit, bad rates at this hotel when paying in local currency rather than US dollars (worse than bank rates).

Sets a high standard for budget travel ”
high standards, EXCELLENT Maldivian Mashuni and Rothi breakfast, comfortable rooms with aquality bed and extra soft pillows
We were very pleased with the quality and value of this hotel. Their standard of service is much higher than most budget guest houses we've visited and the quality of the stay for the price is very, very good. The management is especially kind and actively involved in promoting tourism on Rasdhoo, including helping keep the island clean. Their Mashuni and Roshi Maldivian breakfast is one of the most delicious foods I have eaten - we haven't found better on other islands. Their buffet dinners are also large and very tasty. The rooms are exceptionally clean, comfortable and quiet and the restaurant is as well. They provided a free Boduberu show (we've seen other islands advertise these for $400) that was undoubtedly a highlight of our trip. When our flight arrived late and we missed the ferry Adam quickly organized a speed boat to get us to the island the same day. Tip: phone is easier than email for communication Rasdhoo is a great little island with a bit more tourism than other inhabited islands in Northern Ari Atoll. There are three great restaurants, numerous souvenir shops (although lots of the goods are not produced in the Maldives which is a shame because they have great artisans and handicrafts), and three dive shops tucked between whimsical coral houses. The beach is gorgeous, West facing and cleaned regularly. There's okay snorkeling a short swim out and good swimming at high tide. Madivaru Island (picnic island) and a gorgeous sand bar with excellent swimming and snorkeling is only a 5-10 min boat ride away although the price per person per trip ($30-35) seems a bit expensive (check with the dive shops for possible cheaper rates). The diving around Rasdhoo Atoll was very impressive with lots of sharks, Rays and turtles. However, the friendly, exceptionally laid-back Malvians were our favorite part. We loved it. Highly recommended

Toller Service, gute Lage ganz nah am Bikinistrand, sehr saubere und Zimmer mit Klimaanlage und Kühlschrank, grmütlicher Innenhof
Die Unterkunft lässt keine Wünsche offen! Sie ist sehr gut gelegen, nur ca. eine Minute zum Bikinistrand, der wirklich schön ist und Schattenplätze hat (Mückenspray nicht vergessen). Die Zimmer sind groß und sehr sauber, es gibt eine Klimaanlage und eine Minibar. Es gibt einen gemütlichen Innenhof, in dem das Frühstück serviert wird. Das maledivische Frühstück auf jeden Fall probieren. Am großartigsten war aber der Service. Alle Mitarbeiter waren so freundlich und hilfsbereit, ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Es ist eine sehr, sehr entspannte Atmosphäre, dabei aber perfekt organisiert. Auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen!

Hervorragendes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis”
Ausstattung, Ambiente, Mitarbeiterfreundlichkeit
Auf unserem Rucksacktrip durch die Malediven haben wir 4 Nächte im Banana Residence verbracht. Von allen Unterkünften hatte dieses das beste Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Das Gasthaus ist recht neu und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das Zimmer hatte gutes Hotelniveau und verfügte über beste Ausstattung. Lediglich beim Bad gibt es kleine Abzüge, da es (noch) keine Abluft gab und nach dem Duschen eine Weile dauerte, bis die Feuchtigkeit abgezogen war. Ansonsten ist alles vorhanden, was man benötigt, u.a. Kühlschrank und Safe. Im gemütlichen Innenhof wurde das Frühstück serviert, bei Bedarf kann auch Mittag- und Abendessen zusätzlich bestellt werden. Die Mitarbeiter sind allesamt sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Es können über das Gasthaus verschiedene Aktivitäten gebucht werden. Auch die Reservierung der Rückfahrt nach Male haben die Mitarbeiter für uns vorgenommen. Alles in allem, sehr empfehlenswert!!

かわいらしいゲストハウス”
外観や中庭のテーブル、シンプルな部屋のインテリアなど、かわいらしい雰囲気です。 スタッフもシャイだがフレンドリーで、ローカルアイランドの穏やかな感じが良かったです。 今回は高級ホテルとローカルアイランドのゲストハウスを5島めぐりました。 島々の異動はいろいろ大変でしたが、やはりモルディブは海が最高です! 高級ホテルでもゲストハウスに泊まっても、ボートで海に出ればすばらしいきれいな海が堪能できます。 ホテルで浮いたお金をダイビングやサンドバンク巡りにまわすことが出来、かなり割安な旅が出来ました。

モルディブのローカル島にあるキレイなゲストハウス”
親切なスタッフ、新しく非常に清潔な部屋、おいしい朝食
3度目のモルディブ、今回は島で趣味の釣りをしたくローカル島へ旅行しました(リゾート島では釣り含む狩猟採集行為は禁止)。空港出口にスタッフが迎えに来てくれ島へのスピードボートに乗るまで付き添ってくれるので、初めてのモルディブでも安心です。ホテルは全4部屋程のゲストハウス。2013年年末に完成したばかりで部屋はとてもキレイです。朝食はアメリカン、モルディビアンから選択できます。モルディビアンの方はクレープ生地の様な物でツナ,オニオン,少しの香草を混ぜた物を包んで食べます。さっぱりしたツナサンドの様な味で日本人でもおいしく頂けると思います。その他昼食と夕食はピザ、パスタ、モルディブカレー等豊富なメニューからオーダーします。このゲストハウスの自慢はなんといってもスタッフの親切さ。常に気を使ってくれ、大丈夫だからそっとしておいてという位お世話を焼いてくれます。スタッフは皆10-20代と非常に若く新しいゲストハウスという事で、客を精一杯もてなしたい、客から色んな感想を聞きよりよくしていきたいという意思が常に感じられ素晴らしいと思いました。海はモルディブなので当然美しく、スノーケリングでリーフエッジまで行けばたくさんの珊瑚と熱帯魚を目にする事ができます。釣りの方はショアからでもカツオ、ハタ、アオリイカ、また熱帯のスナッパーやカワハギ等たくさんの魚が釣れました。一般的なエクスカーションの斡旋もしており、私たちは海亀を見れるスノーケリングに参加し、ちゃん海亀やサメ、マンタまでも見る事ができました。移動に少し時間がかかりますが、高級なリゾートでもローカルアイランドでもモルディブの海の美しさに差はありません。特にモルディブを何回も経験されている方は、一度はこのようなゲストハウスに宿泊し現地民の暮らしを感じて頂けたらなと思います。
