Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I've stayed in Violet Inn by myself, and I have to say it was one of my best trips ever. The staff took such great care of me, ensuring that all my needs were met. Mubeen, the hotel manager, personally picked me up and helped me to set up my snorkelling and diving trips. He was always checking in on me and making sure that I was enjoying my stay. The other staff were equally amazing. After cleaning my room, they noticed that my clothes were all over the wardrobe and provided a clothes stand for me, which I feel was very thoughtful of them. The restaurant, Layers Cafe and Bakers, served such amazing meals that I was always full after each meal. The dishes are all local and I like that they explain to me each dish so that I can learn about the local culture too. On my last evening, they prepared a special dinner for me and even did up a wonderful bed decoration for me. Kudos to the Violet Inn team for exceeding my expectations and making my solo trip a beautiful one!

We stayed for 4 days 4 nights at Violet Inn. Arrived via 40 minute domestic flight. Was only sunny on our first day and rained on our entire stay but the rain did not discourage us.

The hotel itself can do with a number of refurbishment / maintenance work but we did not mind. There is coffee making facilities, filtered water, and washing machine to wash dirty clothes.

Though the sun would have provided better lighting to our photos but the experience of having to swim with the mantas is just surreal.

Also enjoyed that we were the only guests in the inn so we had the whole place to ourselves. We were fullboard so we had breakfast, lunch and dinner included in our package. The food was served in the nearby restaurant which was about 200m walk. I loved Maldivian food!

There is also a nearby Bikini Beach.

We had the boat to ourselves on our first 2 days and shared with guests from other hotel on our last day and my oh my. I could just snorkel with the mantas ALL DAY in fact, I enjoyed it so much, I would like to go back to just swim with the mantas again!

Afoo from Violet Inn has been very helpful along with Husento who was our tour guide to Hanifaru.

Violet inn is simply the best place to stay in dharavandhoo. The guest house is a lovely two story building with a lovely terrace which is the best spot on the island to view the sunset. We took an excursion to a nearby sandbank and hanifaru bay, which is famous for manga spotting. The guest house staff were really friendly and welcoming. They helped us with planning our trip. Would definitely recommend violet inn for anyone who wants to enjoy the beauty of maldives on a budget.

If you would like to experience local side of dharavandhoo where you get personalized experience, violet inn should be the number 1 hotel that you should choose. Everything was great, staff, food and humbleness towards the guests. Great respect. Would recommend a thousand times. Hats off to the management.

This was my second stay at the Violet Inn snd I am looking forward to my third. I go to Dharavandhoo for diving and iolet Inn is the perfect place to stay. Clean, friendly, and very comfortable at a very reasonable price. Mubeen the Inn managee is super accomodating and will go out of his way to make sure your stay is great. The Inn is walking distance to the boats and restaurants on the island and a perfect location to stay. I will definitelt stay at the Violet Inn when I return to Dharavandhoo!

Cute guesthouse on Dharavandhoo. Everything on the island is walkable, and Violet Inn is never more than a short walk to anywhere. Staff were super helpful, especially in helping us with the speedboat transfer when our flight was delayed, and also for organising day trips. We'll definitely be back during manta ray season!
