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.

Staying in Biosphere inn for 12 nights to enjoy the natural beauty of Maldives. The guest house is situated in perfect location 5 mins walk from the beach and airport more over just beside we got a football ground and some cafes where we can have a good evening entertainment.

The rooms are clean with good quality of bedding and AC a moderate breakfast and if you are lucky to get the top floor rooms you will enjoy a amazing view of the nature.

From the time arrived in Male airport a perfect pick up and assistance with domestic flight and once arrived in This island it’s all about Mr.John from the airport pick up, welcome drink, explaining the water sports arranging breakfast, cleaning up room assisting with bycycle and the list will go on he is a true professional and a great hearted person too. As well Mr.Sadath the owner of the place is so humble and assisting us in all the ways to arrange the trips checking on our comforts an amazing person.

Cause of there amazing hospitality the lovely guest house becomes the best in Maldives as they make it memorable for us. Will recommend it to all my friends and family.

Dharavandhoo island and Biosphere Inn guest house is absolute peace and hidden gym to isolate yourself from the busy world.

I must say how great service my man JOHN provided us.
His kindness, professionalism, long years hospitality experience really impressed us and made us felt like the king. I can not thank enough him for arranging all the beautiful sea activities including fishing, Snorkeling, day trip to the sand bank and even the private speed boat service and so much more with the impressively affordable price.

The food was absolutely yummmmy, thank you for the chief for the different variety of delicious food, special thanks for cooking super spicy food for the chilli addict myself.
I suggest you to have full board and leave rest to the John and enjoy, he will arrange literally everything.

Weather there is beautifully breezy which kind of wind I missed for 2 years. it is not boiling hot like here in Singapore.

Imagine you cycle less than 5 mins with bike they provide free to the beach and forget everything and relax while enjoy swimming and listening to the music you like at seaside well decorated beach.

Lastly, Thanks Biosphere boss Sadat for making the trip smooth for us specially the local flight with huge discount.

At the end mates, do not confuse yourselves comparing Maldivian beach experience to the any other countries beach, this is the different dimension absolute paradise.

I spent 12 days in Biosphere Inn with a friend. The rooms are big and comfortable, with a peaceful exterior area for having breakfast, reading or socialising with other guests.

But the main virtue of this guest house is that the owner, Hamdhan, the person looking after the inn, John, and all the staff create a beautiful atmosphere among all the guests. They are generous, warm and attentive to every detail.

For example, we were lucky than on our first day, they organised a birthday celebration for a guest, where they generously provided food, and some guests and locals played guitar.

They organise snorkeling trips typically every other day, trying to adapt to what guests are more interested in, and at reasonably prices, so we took as many opportunities as possible.

I’d recommend the Biosphere inn and the island of Dharavandhoo to anyone thinking of travelling to Maldives.

Thanks to the owner and John was our stay great. They took care about us and provide very good service.
The accommodation is basic, but you can find there all you need - privat bathroom and comfy bed (and for my husband also TV :-) )
We had full board and for lunch and dinner we were asked what we want. We had fresh fish with rice and dessert.
the best were the trips around the Island. The owner took us to Sandbank and Picnic Island - paradise.
We will be back as soon as possible.

My experience at this hotel was so heavenly. John and the staff was so attentive to all my needs. The room was spotless and cleaned daily, the meals were delicious and interesting and the extra snorkelling trips with the lovely hotel owner were amazing. I loved having a free bicycle to use to get around and found the island just as peaceful as I’d hoped.

Dharavandhoo is a special place, and what makes it even more special are the people who work for the Biosphere Inn.

I had the most amazing vacation and time of my life in the 10 days I spent at the Biosphere Inn. Every day was filled with a new adventure - snorkeling, island hopping, picnicking on deserted islands, beach swimming, sunset spotting, stargazing, stingray and shark watching - so on, so forth - you never really know what you're gonna see.

The owners of the Biosphere Inn and the staff will make you feel right at home.

Hi,
This was my first time visit in Maldives and Mr. John has graciously made my stay in Dharavandhoo very beautiful and memorable. The food was on time and delicious hearty meal. The rooms were clean and aircon was just perfect. Since I was a solo traveller Mr. John accompanied for Dharavandhoo island sunset and sunrise. Highly recommend to stay and visit. Cheers!

Dear Linda, Thanks for your question. Alcohol is not allowed in the island and yes you will have to stay in a resort in that case. Alternatively, you can still stay in our guest house and take a day trip to the resort nearby. Regards Hamdhan
