    This place is awesome, complimentary airport transfers and very clean rooms. Doesn’t even feels like a lodge, maybe a beach chalet . Breakfast are not included in some bookings, you can additionally add them on when you check in. Checking in was a breeze as well. Friendly staffs.

    Staff was very helpful and friendly, fast WiFi ”
    All staff were in general friendly. The lady in charge especially was very helpful. However I’ve only received their reply regarding airport pickup after 2months from my first message, right before my trip so I would appreciate if they would have reply me earlier to ease my concern. As my resort had contacted them, they had passed me all the info I needed for the flight to the resort and arranged drop off accordingly, which makes the transfer smoothly. WiFi was strong and fast.

    Room facility are sufficient. Good service even we arrived at 11pm. with anothet pair of copules. Staff are helpful. One thing to note: Transportation fee for both ways to airport are chargeable seperately (US$5 per person per trip). Hotel will arrange the types of car depending on the number of pax. You may need to share a car with other travellers.

    Very clean property. Rooms and bathrooms are of reasonable size. Value for money.”
    A very good quality hotel for a one night stay. You would be charged a USD5 per person per ride for airport pick-up and drop-off (we think this price is very reasonable). The owners of the property would liaise with the resort in advance to ensure smooth transition to your resort in the morning. Room is modern and clean. Hot water supply is stable. Bathrooms are of reasonable size so OK for a comfortable shower. All basic amenities are provided. Would highly recommend this property.

    Hotel is on the same island as the airport, just a short drive. Flawless airport transfer to and from the hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, who called to confirm with our resort for next day’s seaplane transfer even before we checked in. Extremely clean room. Perfect overnight stay before going to your dream resort.

    Would recommend this hotel for sure!”
    I booked this accommodation based on the amazing review mark that this place has obtained. Having stayed there myself, I understand now why it has such high rating. The service and response time was fantastic, the room was clean and spacious. The only one thing that I did not find in the room was a hairdryer (but still, I did not make a query at the reception - had I done so, I would probably have gotten one).

    Dear Daphne. Thank you for staying at Maakanaa Lodge. We are glad your expectations were met and you were happy with your stay. And you are right about the hairdryer, wish you had asked! There is a hairdryer in each room, inside the drawer in the wardrobe. Hope you will visit us again. Kind regards Habeeb & Shaheen

    Fantastic transit accommodation - extremely helpful hosts - thoroughly recommended”
    I stayed overnight at Haakanaa Lodge before joining a diving liveaboard adventure. Haakanaa Lodge was perfect for this and for others in transit to an island. Shaheen and Habeeb are the extremely friendly hosts and all their staff are equally helpful and friendly. Complimentary airport pickup and drop-off is offered and this was timely. My room was a good size and was very clean and well maintained, as were the other Lodge facilities I saw. It is true that there is a lot of construction on Hulhumale and another building is being built nearby (as at Sept 2018) but construction stops at night so I still slept well, my bed was very comfortable. The Lodge also has a bike they allow guests to use for free, which I did to explore the island. I would also recommend getting the breakfast when booking or USD 10 p/p on arrival. The breakfast was more than sufficient and also included eggs cooked to order - also try the local tuna dish. I thoroughly recommend Haakanaa Lodge for transit stopovers.

Staying here feels like home. The place is very well kept. Smells good. They have spacious room, big bathrooms, very clean too, and comfortable bed. This place is perfect. Wish to have stayed longer, there is always a next time.

    Even though we stayed here for one night, I could say that I enjoyed my stay here. The owners are personally managing the property. They arranged seamlessly our seaplane transfers. I felt so welcomed and felt genuince care when they arranged the transfers for us. They also give free airport transfers which is a plus. Lastly, we had a wonderful breakfast! The food didn’t look enticing but upon tasting, my God, I was in for a treat! The breakfast was healthy but very satisfying and so filling! I told my husband that we should have more breakfasts like the one we had at Maakanaa Lodge. Should I come back in Maldives, will definitely stay here if I need a transit hotel. 😊

    Let me tell you that at first, i was a bit unsure on whether to book a "lodge" but i did anyway based on the reviews and boy was i glad i did. Shaheen and her husband are the most gracious, helpful, and courteous hosts i've ever encountered. We stayed at 2 different 5-star resorts in Maldives and chose Maakanaa Lodge to be our transit hotel on the way back to L.A. and their service is second to none (better than the 5 star resorts). The room was immaculately clean, air-con is nice and quiet, modern ammenities in the room, transport service was on time. Shaheen even gave me updates about my flight. I asked Shaheen what I needed to buy and she told me where to go step by step. Staff just went out of their way to make our stay very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this lodge. When you are in Male or Hulhumale, look no further, Maakanaa lodge is the place to be!!!!! Thank you Shaheen and hubby!!!!

    Perfect place to stay for late arrival flight”
    We had a late flight and must wait til morning to catch the seaplane to our 5 stars resort. The hotel was very helpful they even contact us asking why the resort has not let them know the morning seaplane schedule (no idea why the resort fail to do this but good thing Maakanaa did not forget about us!) Everything was smooth from picking us up from airport to dropping us off in the morning. Breakfast was good and filing. They offer to make us some fried eggs right the way when they saw us looking at hard boil eggs with hesitation (we don't usually have hard boil eggs for breakfast). The room was very new and very clean. For the price you pay, it's totally is a perfect solution for the late night flight.

    If ever you need a place for your layover in Maldives, this is THE place for you. The service is beyond compare. From the pickup to the dropoff -- their warn smiles take off a lot of load off your shoulders. Even before landing in the airport, the arrangements were seamless and painless. Upon arrival at the Lodge, the owners' warmth radiates. They took care of our transfer arrangements too. The place is clean and well taken cared of. The breakfast is also filling. It is home away from home. Location-wise, it is near the beach and far from the hustle and bustle of Male. Do drop by the Lodge, you wont regret it.

    I would rate 6 stars if I could. Excellent hosts who took effort to connect with guests and made sure everything was alright. Pity we only stayed for 1 night as we were transiting to an island from a night flight. Room and bathroom were clean and spacious! Bed is huge and comfortable. It comes with complimentary car transfer but you'll need to contact them beforehand to give flight details. Breakfast was simple but adequate. I strongly recommend Maakanna Lodge if you're intending to stay in Male.
