    No clean beach”

    Host is nice

    Do not stay here if you expect to see clean beaches on this island as there isn't any, unlike resort. Nevertheless, staffs are very hospitable.

    Best budget option, good location and helpful staf”

    Location, value for money, hospitatlity

    I am very happy after my stay in Kethi Lodge. The owner Ahmed made all the arrangements for my trip; booking domestic air transfer from Male to Dharavandhoo, snorkeling trips, massage and bar visit at Kihaad resort and also gave a discount. The best thing about Ahmed is, he is not money minded thus gives you the best option and also he is extremely punctual and professional. The lodge is located just less than 5mins walk from Dharavandhoo airport and 200m to the beach. It is a beautiful small village. You can take a bicycle and go around the village, The locals are very friendly and helpful. No worries about your safety at all. The rooms are standard rooms, clean sheets and toilets and AC. A nice verandah where your meal is served and chill out place. There is a lovely lady chef who cooks to your preference. She made me feel like home. The lodge has a paid TV where you can get all channels and free wi fi. There was also a gardener/helper in the lodge who followed and accompanied me everywhere I go. So I felt very safe being a solo traveler. It is a no bikini on the island but there is a dedicated bikini beach not too far; 10mins by bicycle. and no alcohol too but Ahmed could arrange a 15mins boat ride to Kihaad resort where you can use the bar and other facilities at no charge. It seems like a good option. Overall I would again to Kethi lodge!!!

    Perfect for budget stay”

    Clean room, awesome staff and nice surrounding

    This guesthouse is a small one with only few rooms and few guests at a time, so the owner Mr Ahmad was very helpful and try to make our stay as nice as possible. The room is quite comfortable at an affordable price. food is a bit expensive, one meal cost around USD 15-20. There is no private beach, public beach is still mesmerizing (minus the litter). Rented a bicycle for USD 10 to travel around the island, which is very convenient. Local people are very nice and friendly. Overall i think its the perfect place to stay if you want to experince the Maldivian village.

    Clean and relaxing”

    The staff are very friendly, speak several languages, and try their best to cater to your wants.

    Shahir is a a wonderful correspondent prior to check-in and he hands off to Ahmad who is a really nice guy. You'll have your fair share of conversations with the staff alone, much less the other guests transiting in/ out; not a problem for a solo traveler at all, and the island is a safe place. No tank tops or "hoochie" shorts for ladies and no bikinis allowed on the island ( it is after all a Muslim, local island), but they'll take you out to a nice sandbank to snorkel and simply bask in the sun at no charge. Bug spray is a must, the guest house is surrounded by greenery and open beaches (that can sometimes be littered with trash but periodically cleaned up). You get the occasional cockroach invasion outdoors near the bale, but I see it as a part of being so close to the outdoors; a little bug spray and some assertion, and it's not too much of an issue. The guest room is amazingly clean, the staff are friendly and try their best to make arrangements for whatever you fancy. The chef is a nice, soft-spoken lady who cares about what you think of her food, so you know you're getting decent fare. We caught a Marlin at a sunrise fishing trip, and they prepared it to our liking. Fresh Tuna bought at the jetty fresh off the boats is ceviche quality. A wonderful place to experience local life on a local Maldivian island. Definitely safe for a solo female traveler.

    Great budget stay and awesome snorkelling trips”

    Staffs are attentive and clean room for a budget stay

    Kethi lodge helped me to prebook my domestic flight from Male Airport to Dharavandhoo Airport which cost me USD286 for two way transfer. There is an alternative via ferry but it is a scheduled time and cost around USD50 one way for 2.5 hours trip. There is a person to great me outside the airport custom exits and brought me to the domestic flight airport departure hall The Lodge owner is trying to get a rebate of USD50 for the air transfer trip by January 2014 if you book a stay at the lodge. Nearby is a hospital which is just three houses away and the doctor there is 24 hours on call. Hanifaru bay would most probably takes 20min for a Dolly boat ride. This lodge is not for resort style stay. My room is equipped with air cons,ceiling fan & heater. It has an ala carte menu ranging from fried rice to pastas or dinner/lunch set ..20 types of choices - chinese, wstern, maldivian, Indians...Very much good n taste like 3 star restaurants. The staff do not overcharge the expenses. Room, pillows, toilet, towels is clean and no smell. Water bottles is provided daily. The staff is indeed tending to our excursion requests or any customized snorkelling excursion request with around the of price USD100 per Dolly boat trip with a max number of persons and to around 2 or 3 snorkelling spots depending on the weather and waves conditions for the day. Meaning, if 4 persons on boat trip, 4 persons will divide among themselves the USD 100. Snorkelling guide is inclusive in the boat ride. Safety is assured in the water. The snorkelling guide is a certified diver and open water life guard. Corals and fishes in my snorkelling excursion are awesome. Visited sandbanks, coral garden and islands. Nice house reef by just 30 feet from the beach and the water is at 3-6 ft high. The staff told me that they could do those moonlight dinner for couple or sun set dinner at uninhabited island.
