We even had a late check out so we could enjoy the beach a bit longer. Our room (105) was okay. The bed was big and very comfortable and the air-conditioning worked perfectly...

地點在沙灘旁邊,早餐不錯,很優閒的地方。 1. Nice location , you can see the ocean when you open the gate. 2. With nice breakfast buffet, many choice. 3. The price is nice better the others. 4. Wifi connection is better than other hotels. (Not too much people share , and steady connection)

The bed I found to be firm and really comfortable, the air conditioning worked well, and the room was spacious. The bathroom is off to...

Of all the inns in Maafushi that I messaged, they are the ones who responded to my questions promptly - They allowed me to make a...

This was our first visit to Maldives. We went with our 1.5 year old kid. Looked up hotels on booking.com, called up the hotels to understand what they offer and the best price. Being a peak season, we had the prices in the same range (slightly higher side). I called Arora Inn, and the manager (Shaffan) spoke, he was super...

It's situated on the best side of the island. It's near to the beach and the port. The room was clean but a littlebit dark and small. The staff especially Shaha was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was so simple it was a bit boring after 2 days.
