      Good transit hotel near airport”

      As I arrived in the evening, I stayed here for a night before heading back to the airport to go to my resort the next day which was perfect as the airport is just a 10-15 min ride away. Arranged for airport pick up/drop off in advance and arrangement was smooth. The room is very clean and feels new. Staff are polite and helpful. A good recommendation for a transit hotel.

      Straightforward transfer. Staff were friendly. Near to supermarket, the beach and also the central area. Clean and comfortable room and bed. There's no lift though so if you are not able to climb the staircase, you may want to check with them before booking. They helped to call and check with the resort and also confirmed for us before sending us to the airport. Thank you!

      Staff were very efficient and courteous. The pick up at airport was easily arranged and they were waiting for us as soon as we claimed our baggage. Refreshing drink upon arrival at the The Lodge (even though it was late in the evening). Breakfast was lovely. Return transfer to airport was quick and efficient, they told us what counter we would need to go to for our seaplane. I would highly recommend Maakanna Lodge as a stopover hotel in Male.

      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.

      Our flight arrived late at night. The service they have from airport transfer, checking in and out, the seaplane confirmation, etc are amazing, They will really take care of you. 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. 😊

      Simply the best”

      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.

      Though we had a chance to stay at luxury pool villas in later days, the friendliness and smile the staff at Maakanaa Lodge was felt the best in our trip at Maldives and cant be compared to the regular hotel service. Its more like a place you can feel comfortable to call home. We felt very welcoming and would recommend any tourist late arrivals that plan to reside near airport to stay at this venue.

      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.

      Perfect!”

      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.

      Excellent service, nice room and very good value for money”

      We stayed one night and left the next morning to an island. It's a family business and they did everything to make sure we were comfortable. Pick up at the airport was smooth and included into the price (it's around 10-15 min drive from the airport), they helped to coordinate the flight in the morning, had a personal breakfast cooked for us, took us back to the airport, waited until the check-in at the airport. During the night, we could not open our bag, due to a lock issue and the owner helped us by bringing tools and managed to open it for us. We also forgot our back pack at the hotel in the morning, and they arrange for someone to bring it to us at the airport before the departure. Very satisfied and highly recommended.

      Way Better than a 2-Star Hotel - Not Even Close!!”

      Nice Rooms, Great Staff, Wonderful Service

      If staying only over night upon arrival to Maldives: You can’t do better than staying here at Maakanaa Lodge: the hotel is new, rooms are immaculate; and as someone who has traveled across Europe extensively, I can tell you that it is easily a 3-star hotel based on the condition of the rooms alone. It is a 10 minute ride from the airport and you will be picked up upon. I would call this a boutique hotel and the only way you would be treated better would be if you were to stay with close relatives. Breakfast is simple with fruits, cereal, & eggs made to order and served very tastefully by hotel staff. You can find hotels for less on this island, but having walked past many during the six days I was on this island, I can say you will not do better and certainly I doubt you will be looked after by better people. If staying for a few days to explore the nearby islands: My wife and I have been to Maui, Kauai, Barbados, St. Thomas, St. John, Phuket & Ku Samui, The Red Sea, Bora Bora, Moorea, and Cancun; and we have experienced all types of accommodations, including pricy resorts, but honestly in all those accommodations we did not feel we were looked after the way this family) took care of us. Mr. Habeeb, with his four brothers and his wife, manages this brand new boutique hotel. He has been a general manager at other resorts for more 20 years and treated us as though we were guests at a 5 star resort: he checked into our excursions, even though they were booked prior with others & made sure we were not being misled; he contacted staff at Biyadhoo resort where he had been the manager to make sure we would receive special treatment, again for no other reason than courtesy. We honestly could not have had a more personable, generous and accommodating people to take care of us. So once again, our many thanks to Habeeb & his wife, Shaheen, the owners, Ali and Kalam in housekeeping and kitchen and Adam, our airport transfer person. We appreciate all you did for us.
