    I and my husband stayed here for a couple of days and the stay was very pleasant. The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodated our requests. They arranged for us to snorkel, visit a sand bank and visit an uninhabited island. We would recommend Equator Beach Inn to travelers visiting Maafushi.

    Perfect for Budget Traveler”

    Truly enjoyed our stay in Equator Beach Inn. It's a perfect local island to do all of your water activities at a cheap. Abdul, the owner, was most hospitable along with his inn keeper and cook. They did everything to make your stay an enjoyable one. The Inn has a home feel and you get to know every guests who stays in the Inn; it was great talking to people from other parts of the world. The only drawback is the location is far from the "bikini" public beach.

    Very clean rooms, super frendly staff and Manager, quiet place for good rest

    Everything was amazing. Place is very nice and clean with a beautiful garden. Very friendly stuff but in general people on Maafushi Island are very friendly. They can organize plenty activities to make your stay unforgetable. Thank you all!!! The only complain I will say about wifi and TV. During our 4 days stay TV signal was constantly so poor that we actually couldn't watch anything. The same or a little bit better was with wifi signal.

    nice stay, welcoming owner”

    I stay for 2 nights stay here and join the snorkelling package to turtle point and dolphin point including sandbanks and lunch for 30 usd only. You can add dinner for 6 usd/ night. They forget to pick me up at the port but they apologized and really tried to please me, they upgrade my room from single to double room instead and I got 1 free dinner. I am a single female traveller and they really protected me during my stay. I got to watch tornado on the wayback to the island and see baby stingray and shark on the Maafushi seashore at night. Thanks to Mr Abdul and all the staffs. Don't forget to pay the green tax fee 3 usd/night on the end of your stay

    Hotel "lost" my booking”

    I arrived at Maafushi to find a representative from the hotel waiting for me which was great. He walked me back to the hotel, told me to take a seat in the lobby, and brought me a juice. I'm guessing the front desk clerk who barely spoke English tried to explain to me that they never received my booking from the Agoda and that it was kind of funny. If they never received it, how did they know to send someone for me and why would me being stranded on Maafushi be funny? Anyway, they were able to secure a room for me in a neighboring hotel (Beachwood) which was awesome. They told me I would stay there for my first two nights and then return to Equator for the last two. On the morning of the day I was supposed to return, the front desk clerk at Beachwood told me I would be staying there another night. Ok, no problem. On the next morning, they told me that I needed to change rooms and asked me if I were ok with staying in the spa on a rollout cot that they brought into the room.

Once again I just can't Thank you enough to the Owner & his two workers. You made my stay memorable.See you again in near future.

    dishonest hotel manager, Abdul”

    We did have an awful stay at Equator Beach Inn thanks to the hotel manager, Abdul. 1. We booked half board with the dinner cost was around USD 12/pax as per the price in Agoda at the time we booked. However, the dinner was so simple, just like the casual meal you have ever day. Meanwhile, other hotels/restaurants offered sumptuous dinners at USD 8/pax in Maafushi island. The most important thing is our breakfast, dinners did not include even plain water and therefore Abdul had to give us a favor not charging the plain water. 2. Abdul misled us when selling his tours to us. Especially the tour to visit Olhuveli beach & spa resort with the cost USD 130/pax for 6 people but USD 135/pax for 5 people and unlimited drinks included as he said the resort increased the fee basing on the number of occupancy. Nevertheless, we checked with this resort and they said that they charged visitors fixed price USD 92.46/pax and drinks not included even plain water. 3. Our advice: If you want to choose this hotel, book the room only maximum breakfast included. Do not book anything else with the hotel owner.

    clean cheap, quiet

    The hotel is new and far away from the beach, so it is quiet and good for sleeping. Staff are friendly and very helpful in making sure you enjoy your stay. something disappointed is that we book a deluxe double room but its size isn't 170 sq.m, it's very small for 2 persons to stay. Room features is not like agoda said with kitchenette,kitchenware neither garden view.Overall, it is cheap for rating as 3-star hotel.
