Everytime smiling, very good manner Big and cool speed boat activity It's very nice. This guest house knows very nice snorkeling spots. I could enjoy snorkeling very much. So many fish Very smoothly and quick bill Food is also good, delicious Food is paper order system. Very good system, easy to understand for everyone and non mistake. Totally very good balance guest house I recommend highly. As I didn't have enough days to stay more, it's just one night stay. If I had time, I thought to wanna extend to stay few days here. Thank you for wonderful stay.

        The staff are fantastic! Quick at arranging and replying to all questions needed, they have a awesome little buggy that will tour you around the island free and drop you at the main beach! Mosque is just across the road so be prepared for a early morning wake up. Only thing that was a let down was the snorkelling gear was so old, mouldy and broken :(

        Very nice accommodation in a exotic island”

        Pro They try to make you feel very comfortable. The room was clean and big enough. The food was very tasty and was served on restaurant nearby (tip : take fullboard/half board included). I recommend snorkelling safari if you want to feel an incredible experience in a marine wildlife. Contra: everything you have to pay with extra 22% more taxes (all Ukulhas island use this system...but not every island)

        We was in September and we enjoyed our stay. We payed a good price for what they offered. The staff was friendly and helpful, they cleaned the room everyday and changed the towels everytime we asked. They organise activities, we choose 2 and offered us a discount. The beach is very close. So we was happy with our choice.

        Outstanding Guest House on a piece of paradise”

        The local island of Ulkuhas is a gem, small, clean with an awesome beach and if you into snorkeling the best part of the reef is just 50 m from the door step of Gunbaru Inn ( This is on the local beach so will need to swim fully clothed )Attention to detail in the rooms is precision. Breakfast is varied but mostly served cold. Staff are really friendly. Didn't go on any tours in the three days we were there but plenty of options available. Only small negative was having to log on to wifi every time you go on line. Highly recommended.

        Nice place to stay if you want to experience the real Maldives. Super nice staff. Only slight problem is the meal selection - as it is an island, it is limited and tends to repeat, if you are there longer time. Go for a fishing trip and let them BBQ the fish for you :)

        Value for Money / The Best Staff”

        I never expected Gunbaru Inn to be this chilled of a place. It is located in the north atoll where it will take 4 and a half hours via public ferry and more than 2 hours via speedboat. The Location: - Its location is quite far. The island itself has not much of things to do and is a very quiet and relaxing place to be. If you are more into that. - The staff will always message you about your arrival and will always be helpful to accomodate you. I had been communicating with Sameer before i arrive and told him i can manage by myself, come on the the of our ferry to the island, it was cancelled, i tried to message Sameer and he was so helpful. He got me into a speedboat and some of the other stranded tourists. I also had a brief chance of talking to him and getting to know him a bit. THE HOTEL - The hotel is very cozy. Upon our arrival, we were welcome with a cold juice. It was very clean and is always kept clean. - The guy maintaining the hotel and the other staff were all so nice. Just let them know what you need from Activities to Food, they are always there to help. - The room is quite big and the bed is very comfortable. We have chair outside the room where we could smoke or just sit in the morning. - One thing to note is that there are a lot of mosquitoes everywhere the island (thankfully nothing inside our room) so make sure to bring a repellent. THE ACTIVITIES - We were on tight budget so we didn't do much but you can ask the staff on whatever activties you want to do and they are always happy to help. They even give good deals for guest ( I love them for that). CONCLUSION: Our vacation would not have had been better. We loved everything about Gunbaru Inn. And i would definitely recommend them. I plan to go back in the near future and will definitely stay with them again.

        Отличный отель и очень приветливый персонал”

        Отель по цене качеству очень хороший. Номера чистые и уютные, единственное- окна в общий дворик. Но так как через пару дней вы будете знакомы со всеми туристами, это не большое ограничение =) Пляж хороший, но потребуются или тапки для захода в воду по мертвым кораллам или ласты. Лучше пройти 700 метров влево, там будет песок. Персонал отель достоин всяческих похвал. Мы сделали чекаут, и должны были переезжать на соседний остров, но паромы отменили все. Единственный вариант оставался speedboat, вместо того, чтобы воспользоваться ситуаций и продать его по дорогой цене, персонал отеля предложил несколько опций и выгодную цену, в итоге очень сильно помог нам, проявив заботу о туристах. Realy good hotel on this island. The Staff are super friendly and helpful.

        Отличный отель, но далеко до хорошего пляжа. Пляж отеля так себе. Вход в воду состоит из камней и рифов. На берег вымывает обломки коралов и прочий мусор, который приносит течением. До песчаного пляжа нужно идти на другой конец острова

        Нормальный гостевой дом”

        чайник в номере+ кофе и чай , бесплатные туалетные принадлежности, кроме мыла,близость пляжа.

        Встретили, проводили в номер, комната чистая, но на 3 человек маловато места, телевизор большой, но он все время не работал, почему мы не спрашивали, у нас был ноутбук.Окна в номере нет, для пляжа дали лежаки без матраца, полотенца и тенты. Дно океана на территории пляжа именно нашего домика- мелкие кораллы, но если аккуратно, зайти можно без порезов, если пройти подальше, можно найти дно где просто песок, для того чтобы поплавать,глубина нормальная только в период прилива, вода прозрачная. Мы как туристы были одни на пляже. Завтраки однообразные: либо 2 сосиски, одно жареное яйцо или омлет, 4 тоста, по 2 упаковки масла и клубничного джема, сок, чай на выбор, либо что-то рыбное, скорее всего консерва с луком, томатом или просто с луком + лепешка жареная, по одной бутылке воды 0,5 литра на 1 человека каждое утро бесплатно. Один раз заказали еду с ресторана в номер, кроме куска жареной курицы и фреша из лайма и апельсина, ничего не понравилось, отдали за 2 блюда,3 фреша и кекс 25 долларов. Продуктов, в нашем понимании, в местных магазинах практически нет. Предлагали экскурсии, но на мой взгляд очень дорого. Проводили обратно, сами несли наш багаж, отель сам оплачивал туда и обратно за билеты на паром, только надо с ними списаться и договориться чтобы вас встретили.
