          Family Room w/ Balcony (inclusive of Breakfast & Dinner) Room - very spacious & clean - we were 3 pax but it can fit 4 - comfort room is big too - they clean and change towels everyday Service - staffs are very friendly - helped us booked affordable tours & discounted transfers - welcomed as when our boat arrived at Maafushi, gave us welcome drinks and cold towels Food - is okay but there was 1 night that all food served were spicy. It would be better to serve at least one or 2 dishes esp if there's a guest who can't eat spicy food.. :) - Breakfast & dinner was buffet Location - near the bikini beach around 5 mins walk - hotel is surrounded with an Italian resto, cafe, and a souvenir shop - 5-minute walk to the boat pick-up/drop off

          Nice hotel”

          We stay 3nights in Whiteshell hotel in a family room. It was enough big for a 4member family and clean. The bathroom also good and clean - I am afraid of it, because I can't find pictures on the internet from the bathroom. The hotel is on halfway to Port and bikini beach, everything you get within 5min. The staff was nice and helpful, wait for us in the port, also they drop off us and arrange tours (we buy it together with the room). One of the tours was beautiful, made by shadow palm hotel/tours, but the second was not so good, it was a night fishing and was boring after half an hour (but maybe only for us). We catch 2fish, was never get them and no barbeque was made. First night we get a la cart dinner and was really delicious. We ordered half board. Other nights had buffet, but was limited and not so much to choose. The buffet breakfast taste better.

          Best stay ever. I will stay here again next time. Kate was the best!”

          The room was great and did not smell at all. Compared to the one we stayed in Hulhumale, White Shell definitely deserves 5 star rating. The toilet was clean and was not clogged. No bad smell was coming from the toilet. No sand on the floor. And they cleaned the room really well the next day. Just the best hotel 👍🏻 The receptionist named Kate was super helpful and gave us all the information that we needed. She understood that we had limited time and explained to us the excursions that we could take even without us asking. We were really thankful and happy for that. They even let us checkout later than the time because our half day trip ended past the checkout time so we could use the room to get ready before we go home by speedboat. Kate helped us a lot by telling us that we can make it for the half day trip and we could change the time booked for the speedboat. Thank you Kate and I hope all hotels/resorts will have people like you. Wish you all the best and will definitely come here next time! P/s just book the excursions with White Shell = easier

          Good value for money.”

          The hotel was always clean, the food was good considering the affordability, we had our favorite maasuni served during breakfast and it is a must try. The hotel is located near the jetty port, and you can get a sea view room. The hotel is a couple of steps to the beach which is great for sunrise and sunsets. Though it is a couple of minutes away from the bikini beach it is still very convenient. The staffs in the hotel are all friendly and helpful. They helped us with all of our day tours and excursions. I would definitely recommend Whiteshell and given a chance we would still book our stay in Maafushi here. Thank you for taking care of us Issey and your whole team!

          The accom location is near to the jetty(well the island is not big). The staff are Super friendly and helpful. From the moment we arrived until the last min we left! Very friendly very nice n very comfortable to talk to. Is a pleasant place to stay. The room is quite spacious enough, love it. Is good to try out their local food, Maldivian food. It’s quite spicy, for those who can’t take spicy food may find it spicy. The food over there quite salty too, for those who cannot take too salty food have to take note. Overall is a pleasant trip, love the people, love the environment, love the sea, love everything!

          I was suprised upon arrival at Maafushi their staff Mohamed already waited for me at the jetty as i didn't even asked them to do so . They take our bags and bring it to the hotel . Upon arrival we were greeted with a fresh cold towel and orange juice which satisfies me a lot during the hot weather . Bought their half day snorkling package with the cheapest price for 20usd thanks to Mohamed . Towels , bottled waters , shampoo & soap were provided . A/c was nice & cold . Breakfast was superb and new menu everyday !! There's a mini mart on the left and a souvenir shop in front and the hotel is 15 feet away from the beach . Everything was perfect and i will definately come back !!

          WhiteShell is worth to you stay & a great place to relaxing. There have two hotel in the island, one of that which need 2-3mins to the beaches & another one the beaches just front of you when you step out from hotel. They have a good customer service, what you just need to speak out what you in doubt. They will help to solve it as much as possible.

          It is a good new Hotel, like most of them on the Island. All is quite new here and the Island will become more and more touristic in the future. They are building a lot. The Beach is only 2-3 min walk. Restaurants are enough on the island. A Boat where you can drink alcohol is located 20m in front of the island, so if you need to drink some you could go there or make a day trip to the islands. the Hotelstuff is very helpfull to plan your trips

          it's just seconds to reach the beach, directly opposite the best dive shop in maafushi, (great staff and cheap bar menu), give you the best for the lowest possible pricing on the island, iCom travel is also the cheapest on the island for any tour. I can said this is the best experience I had after traveling to so many asia country. 3 day in a row I seen pod of dolphins during my dive & returning back to male by speedboat. All different staff bring us so close to the dolphins that you don't need to pay a single cents.

          SCAMMERS - Do not book this hotel”

          We stayed in 3 different hotels in Maafushi. This one was the worst. When we arrived at the hotel, during the check-in, the reception asked us to pay an extra $21 in cash. We had paid the hotel by credit card on Agoda already. So we checked our Agoda invoice and it said that we had to pay 7 euros in cash. But the receptionist was extremely aggressive with us. We said that it was a very bad business practice. This was blackmail. There are taking advantage of the tourists. The other hotels we stayed in were less dishonest than this one. Also the room is very small and the beach of Maafushi is one of the worst of the Maldives. Maafushi is an island of scammers (speed boats, restaurants, excursions)... Please do not support those scammers.

          Family Room w/ Balcony (inclusive of Breakfast & Dinner) Room - very spacious & clean - we were 3 pax but it can fit 4 - comfort room is big too - they clean and change towels everyday Service - staffs are very friendly - helped us booked affordable tours & discounted transfers - welcomed as when our boat arrived at Maafushi, gave us welcome drinks and cold towels Food - is okay but there was 1 night that all food served were spicy. It would be better to serve at least one or 2 dishes esp if there's a guest who can't eat spicy food.. :) - Breakfast & dinner was buffet Location - near the bikini beach around 5 mins walk - hotel is surrounded with an Italian resto, cafe, and a souvenir shop - 5-minute walk to the boat pick-up/drop off

          Nice hotel”

          We stay 3nights in Whiteshell hotel in a family room. It was enough big for a 4member family and clean. The bathroom also good and clean - I am afraid of it, because I can't find pictures on the internet from the bathroom. The hotel is on halfway to Port and bikini beach, everything you get within 5min. The staff was nice and helpful, wait for us in the port, also they drop off us and arrange tours (we buy it together with the room). One of the tours was beautiful, made by shadow palm hotel/tours, but the second was not so good, it was a night fishing and was boring after half an hour (but maybe only for us). We catch 2fish, was never get them and no barbeque was made. First night we get a la cart dinner and was really delicious. We ordered half board. Other nights had buffet, but was limited and not so much to choose. The buffet breakfast taste better.

          Best stay ever. I will stay here again next time. Kate was the best!”

          The room was great and did not smell at all. Compared to the one we stayed in Hulhumale, White Shell definitely deserves 5 star rating. The toilet was clean and was not clogged. No bad smell was coming from the toilet. No sand on the floor. And they cleaned the room really well the next day. Just the best hotel 👍🏻 The receptionist named Kate was super helpful and gave us all the information that we needed. She understood that we had limited time and explained to us the excursions that we could take even without us asking. We were really thankful and happy for that. They even let us checkout later than the time because our half day trip ended past the checkout time so we could use the room to get ready before we go home by speedboat. Kate helped us a lot by telling us that we can make it for the half day trip and we could change the time booked for the speedboat. Thank you Kate and I hope all hotels/resorts will have people like you. Wish you all the best and will definitely come here next time! P/s just book the excursions with White Shell = easier

          Good value for money.”

          The hotel was always clean, the food was good considering the affordability, we had our favorite maasuni served during breakfast and it is a must try. The hotel is located near the jetty port, and you can get a sea view room. The hotel is a couple of steps to the beach which is great for sunrise and sunsets. Though it is a couple of minutes away from the bikini beach it is still very convenient. The staffs in the hotel are all friendly and helpful. They helped us with all of our day tours and excursions. I would definitely recommend Whiteshell and given a chance we would still book our stay in Maafushi here. Thank you for taking care of us Issey and your whole team!

          The accom location is near to the jetty(well the island is not big). The staff are Super friendly and helpful. From the moment we arrived until the last min we left! Very friendly very nice n very comfortable to talk to. Is a pleasant place to stay. The room is quite spacious enough, love it. Is good to try out their local food, Maldivian food. It’s quite spicy, for those who can’t take spicy food may find it spicy. The food over there quite salty too, for those who cannot take too salty food have to take note. Overall is a pleasant trip, love the people, love the environment, love the sea, love everything!

          I was suprised upon arrival at Maafushi their staff Mohamed already waited for me at the jetty as i didn't even asked them to do so . They take our bags and bring it to the hotel . Upon arrival we were greeted with a fresh cold towel and orange juice which satisfies me a lot during the hot weather . Bought their half day snorkling package with the cheapest price for 20usd thanks to Mohamed . Towels , bottled waters , shampoo & soap were provided . A/c was nice & cold . Breakfast was superb and new menu everyday !! There's a mini mart on the left and a souvenir shop in front and the hotel is 15 feet away from the beach . Everything was perfect and i will definately come back !!

          It is a good new Hotel, like most of them on the Island. All is quite new here and the Island will become more and more touristic in the future. They are building a lot. The Beach is only 2-3 min walk. Restaurants are enough on the island. A Boat where you can drink alcohol is located 20m in front of the island, so if you need to drink some you could go there or make a day trip to the islands. the Hotelstuff is very helpfull to plan your trips

          it's just seconds to reach the beach, directly opposite the best dive shop in maafushi, (great staff and cheap bar menu), give you the best for the lowest possible pricing on the island, iCom travel is also the cheapest on the island for any tour. I can said this is the best experience I had after traveling to so many asia country. 3 day in a row I seen pod of dolphins during my dive & returning back to male by speedboat. All different staff bring us so close to the dolphins that you don't need to pay a single cents.
