Kaani Beach Hotel at Maafushi
South Male Atoll,South Male Atoll - View on map
" My wife and I stayed 8 nights at the Kaani Beach Resort on Maafushi island in the South Male Atoll in February 2015. This was the fourth island stay of our 23 day visit to the Maldives. We were promptly met at the dock by Kaani Beach staff who transported our luggage to the hotel. We had previously stayed in guest houses in the Ari Atoll on the islands of Hangngaameedhoo, Mahibadhoo and Omadhoo; on these islands there are few visitors compared to the local population. We were surprised to find so many vacationers on this island. The island had the feel of a resort island where the only locals work in the resorts. There must have been four or five hotels and 20 or more guest houses with construction of many more taking place. Local residences are being displaced at a rapid pace. We had a lovely room on the second floor with bathroom , a/c , with a balcony overlooking the ocean. The hotel also had a good Wi-Fi connection. We paid about $150 per night with taxes and breakfast included. The best feature of this island is a 20 acre lagoon of crystal clear water of constant depth of 3 to 5 feet depending on the tide, right in front of the hotel. Adjacent to the lagoon is a small beach area that is fenced in with a 7 foot high bamboo fence so the locals will not be offended to see bikini clan tourists. When we were there, the small beach area was saturated with tourists; like ants on a sugar cube would be a good analogy. The situation will only get worse as more and more hotels and guest houses are completed. There was no denying though, that the swim area was like a giant pool of pleasantly warm water. The pool is so large that you have plenty of room to yourself. The locals also have a vast swim area with plenty of beach on the north-east side of the island. The water here, however, is of uneven depth with a rocky bottom and is unsheltered from the wind. "

Arena Beach Hotel at Maafushi
South Male Atoll,South Male Atoll - View on map
"cheap price for an awesome four star hotel experience looking for the best but cheap accomodation with excellent service? this hotel is for you! Arena Beach Hotel. Tip 1. Book on Low Seasons to get half price deals. We even got upgraded to a Sea View Room! Just ask if they are available. Best eat all you can breakfast! Book a room with freew breakfast and you wont regret it. Tip 2. Who says going to Maldives is expensive? we have our Snorkeling, Turtle watching, Wale Watching, and Sandbar experience with Free Lunch for only $25. They have evening dinner by the beach for only $15 (eat all you can experience) unli pasta unli barbecue and so much more! Tip 3. Hotel transfers are only $50 two way (shared speedboat). When you land at the Male Airport there is a free call or free telephone to call anywhere in maldives as long as it is landline. it is located at the information assistance booth. Tip 4. there is nothing much to do in Hulhumale so i recommend to go directly in maafushi. maafushi is one of the nearest and cheapest island in maledives. outside arena beach hotel has a public beach where you can enjoy ur bikinis! and mingle with other tourists! questions? richangelo168 instagrm"

"This resort is amazing!! It is very reasonably priced compared to some resorts but the service and standard were exceptional. Staff were very very friendly and helpful. We were upgraded for our last day and night due to 2 birthdays in the family, which was an amazing touch, not to mention the chocolate cake waiting for us in our new room! Turquoise waters and perfect weather. Would recommend to anyone!! "

Summer Villa Guest House at Maafushi
South Male Atoll,South Male Atoll - View on map
"SummaVilla guesthouse is a fantastic guesthouse on the local island of Maafushi (south of Male). Maafushi presents a local, authentic and affordable experience while in the beautiful island chain of the Maldives. The exceptionally friendly and helpful owners and staff of SummerVilla are locals on the island who have their family homes close to the guesthouse. We felt they genuinley cared about during our two week stay whilst exploring Maafushi and its surrounding islands. The service, food, cleanliness of rooms and attention to detail were outstanding for accommodation in this price range. We can highly recommend this guesthouse and will definitely be returning. Thankyou Nassim and family!"

Adaaran Prestige Vadoo Resort
South Male Atoll,South Male Atoll - View on map
"when my wife and i first started looking for our perfect destination for honeymoon at the maldives, we were lost with so many options that seemed just perfect... but we ended up choosing addaran prestige vadoo resort because it`s located in a small island, it has only overwater bungalows and it would definetely give us a lot of privacy. when we got there, everything was beyond our expectations. the hotel is only 15 min away in a speedboat from the capital male (airport), so the transportation was really convenient and a lot cheaper compared to other further islands. some people might get annoyed with the fact that`s so close to male, but we didnt mind it at all. it`s true that we see more airplanes over our heads and more speedboats coming and going, but it just didnt bothered us that much. when we first got to the hotel, we were already welcomed by a team of smily and nice staff with a delicious welcome drink. shortly after we were introduced to our butler that would take care of every little detail, needs and wishes that we would have during our stay. the accomodations and features of the hotel are perfect for honeymooners, it`s very cozy, quiet and private. the rooms are the best, big, spacious and very nicely decorated. it has a jacuzzi and a mini swimming pool at the deck, but who would care for a mini pool if we had a wonderful natural swimming pool right below us? i wouldnt recommend the resort for families with small kids though, because the hotel doenst have facilities for kids nor facities for fans of sports (it only has one volleyball court), but it`s perfect for honeymooners or people that are searching for a quiet place to lay back and chill. the food was spectacular, it had a great variety of options and everything was delicious! the staff became our friends and made us feel like home there. at the end of the our stay we were heartbroken to say goodbye. overall, we loved our experience at the resort and will definetely recommend it!!!"

Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi
South Male Atoll,South Male Atoll - View on map
"Pros is the resort nearby to male just with boat transfer ,staff is great , the ledge restaurant is my favourite The rooms is v good Cons: the room is very noisy because the aircon outdoor machine just behind the bed so its noisy The 2 bedroom villa is good but there is no sound barrier from living room and to the other bedroom, so its very very noisy , we can hear people chatting from other rooms, tv noise from other bedroom as well especially noise from living room.. this hotel need to cover the top of the door to sealed it with glass or wood to cover the noise.. its 0 privacy in the room cos we can hear all the noise from the living area and other bedroom.. Also the smart home system a bit hard to use especially for the lighting and the Aircon system as its connected to living and 2 bedroom when 1 bedroom turn it off, its off all the aircon in the villa! So this need to be fix The last the breakfast is abit boring need to make more menu! I stay for 5 days and no others choice"
