        Great place on a great island”

        We had a standard room and it was very good. The open bathroom is nice, everything was very clean. They have a lot of breakfast choices. It's cosy to hang out in the reception/bar/garden area. They also have a pool table and table soccer. You can rent kayaks for 1h for free. It's very close to the beach and bikini beach is just 3 minutes walking. Island divers were also great.

        A piece of paradise...”

        If you want to do nothing and just relax, you may want to opt for a resort island at crazy prices but for us, Dhigurah was a piece of paradise. TME retreats and specifically Ilyas, went over and beyond to accommodate us the best way possible and we had a time of our lives. Every time we went to the beach, it was like our own beach and we hardly ran into anybody else. The whole island is surrounded by white sand beaches and the scenery can only be observed by being there. And, our stay was amazing...

        BIG ROOM GREAT VALUE”

        Our accommodation room was huge compared to your average hotel room with a generous bathroom. The room had TV with limited stations but the wifi is free so if that is a priority you can use that for entertainment. There is a fridge with tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was comfortable and large. We had free breakfast included which was a buffet with fresh omeletes made to order and pastries etc. Great value for what we paid. The beach for us was directly opposite through the path to the lagoon.

        We loved our time on Dhigurah, it’s paradise.. TME was great apart from the manager Ilyas who was rude and didn’t help at all. He also tried to charge us more than the normal rate for a speed boat after he gave us bad information and didn’t send someone to meet us. Left us stranded on an island and didn’t even apologise. So don’t listen to him but the rest of the staff were brilliant. A beautiful island

        Beautiful location. No WiFi in rooms (only common areas which has many mosquitos at night) which was an issue at times when you wanted some time out from the heat. Think for the price the likes of the pool table should be free for guests (its charged to use), and think the likes of snorkelling equipment could be supplied for guests. Was supplied an outrageously inaccurate bill at the end which needed to be corrected. Overall, stay was good though and enjoyed our time there

        Best dive resort on Dhigurah. Excellent staff, great shower, bed and food. All you need for a comfortable stay. We booked our dives through Island divers through TME. They had the best boat crew and DM's and the boat was fantastic. When I go back would go nowhere else.

        A fantastic retreat with caring staff”

        We had a wonderful stay with TME retreats. Although we only took break fast we had dinner there every day. The waiters Avinesh and Saravana was fabulously attentive- a chosen drink taken on the first evening would be remembered and served exactly as how my son wanted it without asking twice. Commendation to the chef for his wonderful tuna pizza. I had chosen TME retreats because of the location to snorkel and was totally not disappointed. There were live corals, we spotted lobsters, puffer fish, different types of trigger fish..and it was an experience to identify the various fish based on the posters of Maldives fish in the lobby of the guesthouse. Every night reps from island divers would come and we get info on different excursions - the guys there were fabulously attentive and took care of us and our kids in the water. Overall we had a fabulously pleasant stay because of wonderful people at TME retreats. On our departure day we were also followed to the harbour by one of the guys

        Exceptional!”

        Not much reviews about TME but it’s worth it to stay here. To start it of, Communication from the time of booking was a bit delay, but the Manager Ilyas knows damage control and service recovery. Something we need for a hotel manager. Arrived in Male Airport and was assisted on my arrival, also during the arrival in the island we were welcomed and transportation to the retreat house was arranged (without prior discussion with them) which is really cool. I had a special request upon booking and was done in the most amazing way! Room is clean, daily serviced, towel replacement daily and well ventilated with air-con and sliding door access outside the room (with privacy) if we want fresh air. Bed is comfortable and cozy. Breakfast is amazing! I liked the american breakfast and the maldivian breakfast! Lunch and dinner was cooked well and really tasty! No regrets staying here! Front desk and all the staffs have been very accommodating, they know what they’re doing! We felt comfortable with each of them! Activities was easily arranged by the front desk, even the flight back was done correctly. I didn’t have any issue with my stay. They helped us that made we us relax and enjoy our stay. The island is just the most awesome local island. It’s a long island with it’s own sandbank so no need to pay extra just to go to sandbanks. The island also is where the whale shark stays. Majority of the island bring their guests here just to see the whale shark. Manta and dolphins are in this area too. The island have it’s own souvenir shops. Stores are just around the corner. Other hotels have their restaurants in case you want to try other foods. This island have it’s own water sports area so it’s easy to just book your activities. Highly recommended! No regrets on choosing this place!

        You get what you pay for”

        I only stayed a night because by the time I arrived in Dhigurah it is in the late afternoon. I checked out early the next morning to another hotel. A staff was at the pier to pick us up upon arrival in Dhigurah. It was a short 10mins drive from the pier to the hotel. Upon arriving at the hotel, welcome drinks and cold face towel were served to us. Staffs were friendly. However, the room we stayed in had an odour/weird smell and somehow everything in the room gave me an unclean feeling. Even the bed sheet smelt funny -a stale kind of smell. Toilet was quite run down and old. Wifi only worked in the lobby. Location was 2 mins to the tourist beach which was excellent. If you are looking for a cheap stay, TME Retreats is a good choice!

Cons: Room with pool wasn’t the best since we couldn’t really use the pool and the room wasn’t really getting cold using the in room AC. We had to have the AC running all days to keep it cool.

        exceptional attention to detail by staff!!”

        The staff go out of their way to make sure everything is exceptional, attending to any request immediately and cheerfully. I had taken my daughter there for her 23rd birthday but had not told anyone it was her birthday. The staff must have picked it up from her passport and they presented her with a full homemade delicious decorated chocolate cake and then when we got back to the room after dinner the bed had been decorated with flowers and leaves spelling HB and her name. Amazing! We were floored at how far they had gone to make her day special. Plus she had swam with a whale shark earlier in the day! A very memorable birthday! TME is fabulous and the snorkeling right off the beach is fantastic to see many many kinds of fish. Food also was great and room very clean and spacious, again with every attention to detail attended to. You will not be disappointed staying at the friendly TME Retreat.

        Great option for diving & the nearby beach. Friendly staff & tasty food too”

        Pros- friendly staff who are very helpful, the food is excellent with a variety of local, south Asian & international options. The bikini beach nearby is clean and beautiful. Island divers is affiliated with TME; and the dive instructors were professional and knew their stuff. Would dive with them again if we have the opportunity. Cons No alcohol on the island & there are lots of hungry mosquitoes; but this is not Tme’s fault. Our connecting flight to male had to be 5 hours before our departure flight from the Maldives; so not the best connections available if you’re short on time

        Friendly staff that goes out of their way, and extremely clean and well-located! Perfect for budget travelers. ”

        We could not have enjoyed our stay more here! We just got back from our trip and would go back in a heartbeat. Let me start by saying that my fiancée and I are budget travelers - we don't mind being rugged and don't need fancy amenities like spas or table service. We went to the Maldives for one reason and one reason only - to scuba dive. We had recently gotten our open water PADI certification (I would highly recommend getting all of the open water sessions out of the way so you can hit the ground running when you get to the Maldives) just so we could come scuba diving here, and we were looking for a budget hotel option. Transport to the hotel: TME gets a discount with the domestic airlines and arranged our round trip Male to Maamigilli domestic flight (about 30 min flight) and speedboat (about 45 min) between Maamigilli and Dhigurah - I would recommend booking your domestic transfers through them! A representative met us at Male airport, took us to the domestic terminal and we were picked up promptly at the speed boat station at Maamigilli and taken to Dhigurah. We were picked up and driven to the hotel from the Dhigurah Harbor (less than 10 min). The hotel: We found TME Dhigurah through the reviews on Trip Advisor, and booked on a whim. We were so impressed with the staff. They are all so friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is free with your stay, lunch is a la carte midday and dinner is a delicious buffet (for ~$20 USD per person). The rooms are air-conditioned and provides all of your essential amenities - hot water, a free liter of water each day, fridge, nice and comfortable bed. Everything is very well maintained, and I felt very safe in the area. Wifi is available for free in the lobby/common area, and there’s also lots of board games, a foosball table, and pool table. There is also laundry service if you need it. The beach is literally a couple of steps away, and the sunset is really gorgeous! I would highly recommend this budget hotel

        TME was our first choice for our stay in Dhigurah and we are happy we chose it. Staff was very helpful with every request - from the first moment we landed in Male till the last moment we said goodbye. Manager of TME - Ilyas - helped us with the transfer from Male to Dhigurah (as we didn't have this figured out till we landed)... The island is beautiful by itself. TME is situated right next to bikini beach and it has the best access to the beautiful sandbank...we were there 5 times! Don't miss it! We only missed more fruit & vegetables for breakfast but everything else was fine. We stayed for 8 nights - I wish it was few days longer :) If we came again we would definitelly choose TME. Thanks!!! ❤ Hope to see you again...
