    Best Local Tour Guide and Sincere Heart-warming Service”

    We book full day TOUR and never regret our decision. The Best Tours I have ever experienced. Tour Guide Moose is the best professional guide I've ever seen. Very professional and passionate in giving us best experience possible. I like his passion and he take real good photos and underwater videos which we are unable to do so by ourselves. I am also touched by Nasir whom give his best to make our stay in SHADOW PALM comfortable and memorable. I will not hesistate to stay here again and go out on a Tour by SHADOW PALM if I were to come to MALDIVES again.. In my opinion it is the people and their service that makes SHADOW PALM NO.1 in MAAFUSHI. The place of stay is not high rise but few units which makes me feel more like a resident of this island than a Tourist. Makes me feel at Home. 😊 KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK GUYS!

    Pleasant Stay, Value for Money”

    Friendly and helpful staffs, Cleanliness, Near to the beach

    We were surprised to see Mr. Muhamad and staff were waiting for us at Maafushi Jetty, even there was no prior information from us regarding our arrival time. First good impression of the hotel, as soon as we stepped on the island. The hotel is just a few steps from the beach. Rooms are very clean and tidy. They will clean the room each day, if requested. Fresh towels were provided everyday. Staffs are friendly, helpful and informative. Breakfast provided is in big portion and tasted good (international breakfast and Maldivian breakfast on alternate day). Water, fruit juice and coffee/tea are included. We have joined the half day snorkeling excursion with them, at an affordable price. Very kind of them to offer taking underwater photos and videos for us. Excursion guide Mr. Ali is experienced to quickly identify when and where there are manta ray, turtle and dolphins. Also they taking great care of customer who join the snorkeling excursion but does not know how to swim, thumbs up for this. Really pleasant stay and value for money. Thank you Mr. Muhamad, Mr. Ali, and all other Shadow Palm staffs. Definitely will recommend to friends.

    Absolute best location”

    Proximity to the beach, staff attentiveness, excursions

    This is a small guest house located right on "bikini beach" in Maafushi. The location is extremely important as other places on the water do not have direct access to the beach (meaning women cannot be on those beaches in a bikini). Additionally, the place is run like clockwork by Ali and Mohammed who are very attentive, very personal and have somehow mastered the art of customer service at barely 20 years old. The rooms are simple but comfortable, everything is extremely clean and within reach with the help of Nassim, the resident can-do-it-all cook/cleaner/maintenance person who also has a permanent smile on his face and does everything he can to make guests feel at home. Although slightly more expensive than the other establishments in terms of excursions and transportation, Shadow Palm makes up in privacy (you do not have to share a boat with 10 other people) and attentiveness. I highly recommend this over other establishments in Maafushi.

    Good Value”

    A basic hotel with no frills, good value option for a weekend trip to the Maldives. Fantastic location and the staffs there are all so friendly and eager to serve. The room is basic but adequate. Breakfast is served early for us as we took the day trip out for 2 days which we appreciated. The plus point is the day trips out in the sea, organised by Shadow Palm, it was an amazing experience: well organised and so much fun...will definitely go back to Shadow Palm and hopefully this time we will be lucky to swim with the whale shark !

    Perfect Location at Beach, great Food, but...”

    Location, Food, Nice Manager

    I and my mom really enjoyed our stay at Shadow Palm Hotel. The Hotel is small, but that makes a cozy feeling and with the sand in the eating area and the decoration it feels like a surfer hideaway. The breakfast (either continental or Maldevian with Tuna and Rothi) is very tasty and comes with fresh fruits and fresh fruit juice daily. Also the dinner options are very tasty, but it takes some time to prepare the food. So better you order ahead (around 1 - 1 1/2 hours later you can enjoy eating). The location next to the tourist beach is perfect. You can do a lot of sports activities. Also the hotel is offering a lot of tours. I really enjoyed the whole day snorkeling tour, swimming with the mantas and dolphins.
