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 was recommended to stay at Lvis Blancura by my friend who visited dharavandhoo before me. So i went ahead and book the room for 10days and it was beyond what i was expected. The owners Lisham and Visham are incredible awesome people that would try to organize anything that would make your trip memorable. From Manta excursion, sandbank trip, fishing trip, to candle light dinner.
This guesthouse has 11 rooms. I stayed in the beach view room …which was perfect for me as I was on my workation . So it was nice to work with the ocean view.
The room is a good size and clean. Water is hot , which is a great thing after I went for a swim in the late afternoon.
The staff are very attentive and helpful. I love that they smile all the time.
Food is another great thing about this place.
I would recommend book the half board or even full board meal. Chef would cook a few variety of food for you to try in a meal…they call this a family style sharing…
I have a lot of food allergy and the team pay attention to my detail of food I avoid…so i end up have many grill fishes and salad which is PERFECT for me…
For manta trip, Lisham has a connection with the Rangers who fly drones and control the Hanifaru Bay. So Lisham will come around to tell you if there are Manta in the bay and what time to meet if you want to go!!
After 10days , the place has almost became my second home in Maldives!! It was so warm hearted that I decided to return to Lvis Blancura again just after 2 weeks.

On my 2nd trip, i was welcome with 2 boiled egg which is what i would have for my breakfast/lunch everyday!! I mean they staff really put a thought of me coming back and I might be hungry … that was really nice of them.
I stayed for a week on my second visit. Lisham and I had became good friends. And I am glad that during my second visit, i have taught him how to freedive and certified him and Molchanovs Wave1 freediver!!
So if you visit Dharavandhoo or Hanifaru Bay…you can contact him to be your buddy 😉

The rooms have a good size and are equipped with everything you need: enough storage space, hairdrier, fridge, safe, etc. We could sleep very well in the bed and the AC provided a much needed cool air. The rooms get a quick clean every morning. There are lots of different possibilities to chill in the garden and on the beach which is directly in front of the hotel building. The island does not offer many places to eat, but fortunately the food provided by the hotel kitchen is cheap and tastes very good. They even managed to provide something different for the dinner every day on our 7 days stay. The tours provided are OK, with the Mantas snorkeling tour being the main one that is done every time there is a possibility to see these cool animals. Unfortunately most of the tours are very weather dependent and get canceled pretty often. The hotel reef is great, filled with hundreds of different fishes. Flying foxes flying around on the island are another cool animals you can spot.

The internet was very slow. After a small sandy part, the entrance to the water is filled with stones and dead corals so it is best to have shoes on. The island does not offer many activities, so if you are not snorkeling or diving it is not much else to do.

LVIS Blancura:
A family of 2 adults and a child of 1 year and 5 months we spent one of the most beautiful holidays of our lives.
We did a lot of searching in the Maldives to find a location that fits all our requirements.
LVIS Blancura not only fulfilled all this, but it exceeded our expectations.
Location on the beach, a beautiful beach with a very cool reef right in front of the location.
Instagramable location with palm trees and fine sand as you imagine it will be in the Maldives.
The super cool people from both the community / village and the employees I interacted with
Congratulations to Lishan who is always at your disposal and is very involved in everything related to the comfort of the guests.
Saheil a wonderful man all the time with a smile on his face and very warm.
Sajib & Habib who prepared our room every day and cleaned up after the daily disaster we make in the room.
Raju & Prashant who cooked some super tasty food every day.
We had to limit ourselves to trips because we had to make our schedule according to our little girl's rest schedule so we only took 2 trips from the hotel and we were very satisfied.
The 14 days spent in the location have passed much too quickly, we would like to return but we would like to discover other equally beautiful places, so I can recommend and will recommend to our close people to Lvis Blancura because people + location deserve this.

You are almost staying by the sea as the hotel is located only 20m away from the beach, as you walk under the palm trees. Sumesh, Sohel, Ayub, Bimaj, Santhosh, Sojib,Jamayi, Chitan and Santos make up the perfect team who provide you with all the comforts of meals&room service. It is not like the 5-6 star resorts where there is a "distance" between the customer and staff; here you really feel at home. The food, freshly prepared at the kitchen is delicious. There are small lagoons in front of the hotels, Blanchura is at the nearest one to the port. The colourful fish and coral reef was magnificient. Here I could also observe the turtles, dolphins and a reef shark without going on a tour; although the staff can arrange daily tours if you want. You can watch the sunset from the next lagoon and the beaches, with their varying degrees of sand and corals are to everyones taste. You can have dinner right on the beach as the staff can get tables set anywhere. Do not forget to pack your seashoes and mosquito sprey. Anything you forget at home, the market at the village is nearby and the prices are reasonable.

Right on the white sand beach, under the shadow of palm tree forest, this little privately owned hotel has everything you need for peaceful, comfortable and dynamic holidays. Excellent food, unbelievably polite and responsive staff, daily snorkeling and diving excursions with own boats and cute setting on the brink of a small local community (1000 souls, hospital, airport...), comfortable fully equiped rooms for all budgets, these are just some of the features that will make your stay a memorable experience.

This is one of the best guest houses I’ve stayed at in the Maldives. For me the hospitality and service I got here beats any resort. My main purpose to stay in dharavandhoo was for diving and the blancura was ideal as my accommodation. Good was exquisite , lisham is an excellent and outstanding host. Treats you like family and you are considered part of the blancura family. I’d always stay here everytime I go to dharavandhoo. No second thoughts on that. Keep up the good work. It’s a rough time for everyone in the hospitality industry to survive but you guys at blancura held your chin up high and still delivered. Thank you so much for a memorable time. With the bookings of the local flights and in organizing the PCR test. God bless the team at blancura.

Small boutique hotel right by the bikini beach. Location is marvelous as you are 20m away from a beautiful beach and blue sea. Of course you do not find the endless open buffet tables you find in 5-6 star resorts but you aren't leaving the dining area feeling hungry. They arrange tours out to the reefs and diving spots at reasonable prices. The staff is very helpful sincere.

Excelent guesthouse right at the bikini beach ( we have been to many many local islands and this is very rare).
The staff is out of this world, so kind and helpful!
Great rooms, with everything that you may need, simple but good breakfast, great and very tasteful dinner by the beach, water, coffee and tea facilities, very good wifi.
The beach is very relaxing but unfortunately there are rock barriers all around.
So close to Hanifaru bay and many other excursions and day trips.
The snorkeling is gorgeus and just steps from your room.
Very good welcoming and easy transfer out with the shuttle bus from air company Manta Air - great flight with amazing views!
Thank you very much guys!

We stayed in a double luxury room for 5 nights in LVIS Blancura in July 2022, and had a very pleasant stay. The room was very comfortable and super clean (daily cleaning) and the staff was super friendly.

During our stay, the weather was very good which allowed us to relax, enjoy the sun and explore the reef (which has some nice surprises) just in front of the hotel. There are enough sunbeds for the guests, and Dharavandhoo was a lot more quiet than we expected, which was really nice.

Unfortunately due to this calm weather (without a good current) we could not see the mantas in Hanifaru, which actually was the objective of our visit. But of course this can happen, and we still really enjoyed our stay at LVIS Blancura.

All things considered, the hotel offers really good value for money, I would definitely recommend staying here!

Thank you Lisham for arranging our flights to Male, maybe we'll visit again and have more luck with the mantas!

Very quiet place, connected to nature, clean place and comfortable. What made the difference in this place was the very attentive staff that help us to book flights in a day that other hotels told us that nothing was available. Service was great and they treat us like king and queen.
Thanks so much to Lishan, Sumesh, Biraj and Sohel. For sure a place I will go back.
