Very cosy place with great company. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The place has easy access to the Public beach. The Bikini beach is few minutes away. They arrange trips to close by sandbanks which is a highly recommended trip.

Room Tip: The island is not big you can walk around easily. There are few shops and restaurants you can try.

I definitely recommend this hotel. It's just two years old, so everything is new and super clean. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious, well airconditionned, with a fridge, a kettle, coffee, tea & mineral water, a safe and various sockets. Nice food and fantastic service! Rooms are cleaned every day. The male team lead by Abu is extremely friendly and open, immediately responding to all your needs and wishes. They know where to take you on a speedboat to see manta, how to prepare lunch for you on a desert island and how to organise sunshine every day, even during the rainy season 😊 If you're looking for a friendly place on the Maldives, this is definitely the one to go!

It was so nice to visit By the Shade!! It’s perfect place to rest and see beatiful Maledives. Great Owner, very helpful and nice. Room was nice and clean. Delicious and fresh food. An additional advantage were meals prepared to the preferences of a 3year old daughter. Island is very small, with few shops, beach quite and nice, sometimes we were alone on the We would definately recommend this place!!

The rooms and the exterior of the hotel are very nice and are cleaned every day. The food tastes excellent and is prepared with great care. The hotel staff is very nice and helpful. The bikini beach of the hotel is not far away. I can only recommend the hotel!

The room at this property is very spacious, very modern (opened in 2019), with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom is spacious as well. The building is nice with only two levels, and modern as well with areas in which you are able to relax and enjoy the view. The service here has been amazing. We were picked-up from the speedboat, provided with a tour of the island, we could get meals at the property, and all of our speedboat transfers were organised for us. There is a nice, private "bikini" beach on the island as well (no charge), and the property has private sun-beds available at the beach. Note that there are a lot of mosquitoes on the island (along with all of the other local islands we have visited), however the property provides mosquito repellent spray so make sure this is used before leaving the property.…

The excursion trip to the uninhabitat island organised by them was truly beyond expectation.. we loved it. Aspecially my 2 kids.. A big thanks goes to Aboo and Ari for making our stay a memorable one.. We highly recommended this place and surely come back. Tip: the island has a private beach.
