Amazing
They make us feel a part of family. We will return. They organize everything for us: transfer from airport, tours, diving, etc. Everything was 5* Was my second time in Maldives, and first in Dhangethi. Total recommend. Rooms are clean, big and comfortable… they provided everything you need. Thanks for making special our holidays. Filipe&Galya

We loved Dhangethi
Faari was the most heart-warming, caring host, and always made sure that no wish was left open without being intrusive. The house itself is nicely surrounded by lush greenery where you may find some popular in-house plants, which grow wonderfully on the outside here. Breakfast had a big variety and we ate way too much every morning. The room was held super clean by the friendly staff. In overall, the whole island has a natural flavor with good natured people where everyone greets everyone and is open for a chit-chat even with tourists. We are also thankful how quick and easy communication with Faari went, even on short noticed requests such as the Manta/snorkeling trip. Of all three islands and guesthouses we visited, we enjoyed our stay at Faari's the most, recommend!

Arianna Dhangethi - we would stay nowhere else
After my son and daughter-in-law married, seven of us took a family holiday staying at Arianna Dhangethi. The island is made of sand. It feels so intimate. Whoever we met was kind to us. It is perfectly safe - so safe that some of the shops leave their goods hanging outside the shop, day and night. You can walk around the perimeter of the island in about 2 hours. There is a lot of boat-building and an electricity station with a very friendly manager who happily explained its workings to my husband. The Arianna, however, was a highlight. It is a family hotel so you don't feel like a tourist. The rooms are excellent, with great views and areas with swinging seats. The food is excellent and they accommodate your timing. So, they will say 'What time would you like breakfast?' Same for lunch and dinner. They also arranged scuba training and snorkling for us, with a family member. The cost of snorkling was $USD 20 per person. Private hire of a boat was $USD90 for 5 hours. The costs were what we were told with no hidden charges. Farii and Bestey were thoughtful hosts, making sure we were always okay but not intrusive. They saw us off when we left. We felt cared for the whole time. I have a busy work life, and I actually took a holiday. It seemed the right thing to do in such a wonderful place with such wonderful people.

Amazing time in Dhangethi
Faarii and everyone else at Arianna Dhangethi were wonderful and made sure our stay was amazing from start to finish. We couldn't have asked for more from the accommodation, and they helped us do all the activities we wanted (and more). They arranged transport and covid tests very helpfully and even accommodated us when a positive test came back. Our stay was lovely and we would definitely do it again if the opportunity arises.

Perfectly Peaceful
My brother, two friends and I recently stayed at this beautiful guesthouse on the island of Dhangethi in the Maldives (10/14/2021-10/22/2021). Prior to arriving, the owners, Bestey and Faari answered my numerous questions in a timely manner even though we had 9 hours of a time difference. This was exceptional as usually one would wait for several days prior to hearing from anyone. Once we arrived, there were no surprises. The guest house was beautiful and the rooms were clean. I had a well maintained large room with a balcony and king bed which was great for relaxing. I was able to fully relax and sleep (which I needed to renew my mind and body). Bestey and Faari were the best hosts ever!! We’ve never had anyone to take care of us like they did while we were there!! They met us once we arrived by speedboat at the docking area, took our luggage and escorted us to the guesthouse which was a short walk away. We were given our rooms and was greeted with a coconut water refresher while dinner was being served. Bestey and Faari arranged every activity for us including a walking tour of the island, water sports, our return Covid test, a clinic visit with x-ray for me (due to a car accident on the way to the airport in the States), shopping excursions and payments for every single thing we did so that only one bill was due at the end of our trip. They even exchanged money for us! ☺️ They did an excellent job as hosts!! We were also able to meet most of their family members and friends who were also very friendly and helpful! Faari’s mother hosted a cooking class of Maldivian cuisine for us too! Her sister, Aisha assisted us with shopping in their store for souvenirs as well as where to find other items we wanted from other local merchants. Her son, Noah, was the sweetest young boy ever!! He kept me entertained!! We become fast friends as everyone on the island seemed to know and enjoy him!! Bestey’s father and mother helped us too with meals (mother) and some of the excursions (meals and excursions). Needless to say, we enjoyed them all!! The Chef, Mohammad, invited us to his home for tea and a delicious snack one day where we met his family too! They were so welcoming!! His 3 month old grandson, Frank, fell in love with my brother! He didn’t want us to leave!! The manager of the guest house, Chalbert (I think I spelled his name correctly) was absolutely awesome!! He did everything…(there for breakfast, lunch and dinner to serve and remove dishes from the table, clean and maintained rooms, brought extras if needed, around the facility from early morning all day and we’ll into the night as we stayed up relatively late each night. He never complained about anything we asked. He was fantastic!! Our activities on the island in addition to shopping included the sunset cruise(it was beautiful for great pictures), tubing (it was fun), a ride on the catamaran ( this is a must do as it was awesome and relaxing as well as entertaining because the captain of the catamaran, Nemard, gave us some cultural insights into the Maldivian people!!), swimming in the beautiful clear waters, sitting on the pier and interacting with the people on the island!! We took a seaplane ride to leave the island to return to Male to the airport! It didn’t disappoint as well!! Beautiful views of other islands from the plane with a smooth take off, landing and flight!! We enjoyed everything!! Overall, this island and the Arianna Dhangethi guesthouse was absolutely amazing and awesome!! We’re already planning to return!! Can’t wait!! 😁

Awesome Arianna Dhangethi
From the moment we arrived at the Hotel, we were greeted with the warmest welcome from staff members. The check-in process went very smoothly and our luggage were taken to our rooms so our stress-free vacation began the minute we stepped foot into the Hotel with huge variety of welcome drinks and snacks. Room: We stayed at the Balcony room with very good sea view. It was beautiful and very clean. Snacks and beverages were provided and replenished daily with our all-inclusive package. Words cannot express just how breathtaking the ocean view was from our terrace. Breakfast: The food was exceptional and the staff provided excellent service specially the (Uncle and Aunty care taker of the property). The Fish variety in breakfast was amazing and memorable experience. During our stay, one of the Owner Mr Minday was a gem of a person. He was available for help 24*7. He even prepared for us a special noodle breakfast which was amazing. Nevertheless the vegetarian option where limited, considering the Ramadan timings. We want to give a special shout out to the staff at the Ariana Dhanagethi who were available for us all the time, . Everyone was super friendly and so much fun. Cons: a little language problem with the staffs which was always translated well by the help of Mr Minday. Island Activities: We enjoyed special photography session with a breathtaking sunset view. Romantic beach dinner: there are separate restraunts offering the beach side dinner with amazing decoration. Hotel Cleaning and Hygiene: Cleaning services was awesome and you can related it with 5 star category. Overall, Arianna Dhanagethi, Maldives is the perfect vacation getaway to escape from all the stressful situations happening in life, especially at this time. We highly recommend staying at this hotel for those considering to visit the Maldives! We spent almost 18 days in the 2 km island. Almost got familiar with the entire island people who where so welcoming for the guest.
