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.

We spent a week in Dhigurah Retreat Beach and it was amazing. Special thanks to Nahid, who is an exceptional host, very professional and helpful and friendly at the same time. Very good communication with Nahid before and during the stay. He took care about us and organized great snorkling trips and was with us helping to find manta rays and turtles in the water. The place itself is located 20 m from the sea. You have your meals in the shadow under the palm tree with the view to the sea! The room was clean and nice, towels exchanged (beach towels available as well) with very good air conditioning. The meals prepared by the chief were fresh and tasty. Fully recommended

I stayed with my family and husband. The rooms were big and spacious, the service was amazing. The owner was very friendly and helpful throughout the whole stay. The beach was right in front of the room. We had all our meals by the beach with the most amazing view. Everything about this place was wonderful. 10/10 recommend for the families traveling to the Maldives’ local islands. I got the full local island experience. Hoping to visit soon again. Loved it!

This is our 2nd time visiting Dhigurah and I stayed for 4 nights with Dhigurah Retreat Beach and it surely has been the best experience with them. The food was so good and the staff was incredible. Would definitely visit again and would recommend this place for anyone looking for a friendly and welcoming experience. Nahid (Owner) was incredibly helpful in everyway and so was the other 3 staff. Best experience ever!

We suggest you to stay away from that hotel and their owners! Let me tell you our very bad experience with them. We made a reservation for 3 nights for wrong month, October instead of November. It was a good deal with no refund. We immediately found out our mistake and send them email asking to accept wrong reservation cancelation and accept the right one for November (exact dates!). We contact Agoda at the same time and they tried to call them, but they were unavailable (late evening hour). Next day we got email from Agoda that the hotel doesn't want to accept our cancelation request as they might not be able to sell the rooms anymore. After that we call the hotel and tried to explain that we choose the wrong month and send them email message few minutes after that, but they didn't listen at all. The receptionist was just keep telling us about their cancellation policy. After call we send them new message (email, facebook messenger, viber), because we thought they didn't understand us, but they didn't respond at all! We wanted to come to their place in November, but after that we rather choose other hotel with honest owners. There are many other nice places in Dhigurah. Because this hotel has totally unfair owners which just want to take your money! After that we found a lot of negative reviews about hotel on travel blogs and sites, so we were not the only one having bad experience with them…

My sister and me stayed here for 5 nights and it was the best time ever. Saneeh and his staff are the loveliest and kindest people. The rooms are very clean and beautiful. The breakfast was wonderful, everything you need:) We went snorkeling with Whale Sharks & Manta Rays and weren’t disappointed. One of a lifetime experience! The island is the most beautiful place we‘ve ever seen. Not many tourists, very quite and peaceful, a lot of nature & the beach is incredible. White sand, turquoise water, you can even spot baby sharks! If I return to the Maldives, I would immediately go back to Dhigurah and Dhigurah Retreat Beach. Thank you Saneeh for your generosity, help and kindness. You don’t meet people as him that often. Thank you!!!

I want thanks Mrs Aru, she is patient with me, before I arrive I ask si menu questions and she Gelo always in good mood. After Mr Saneeh welcome me in the pier, helping my with everything, the excursion to Whale Shark was my priority, and done at first try. So happy, but I’d not always like this. I wish you luck! Breakfast is more than enough, I think this place is good choose for the price. I had the room to the sand road next to recepción, was lovely. The receptionist Teti also very friendly. Chef also make my egg white omelette. I was happy too choose this place for me stay at this amazin lical islan, is the most beautiful island I see in Baa and Ari, the bikini beach is without ending and very paradise.

This is the place to be on Dhigurah - we have been treated like royalty by every single staff member, the location, price and quality of this resort is hard to top. We love it so much that we are extending our stay here! Saneeh has been so kind to us, he took us on a sunset catamaran tour for free, took us snorkeling with whale sharks and manta rays, gave us medicine because one of us got sick and beautiful Theti made us the most amazing soup to unblock the sinuses. The breakfast btw is also amazing - pancakes, eggs, sausage, toast - anything you’d like! Thank you for being so amazing everyone and making our stay so memorable!!

I booked the guest house for 7 nights for end of October. All the time the staff was very friendly and cooperative and helped me with all my questions. Unfortunatelly some hours before our flight, my son got sick and we couldn`t come. We canceled our stay and even though our cancelation was the same day of our arrival, they returned us all the money. Without complications. Thanks again. See us next time :)

STAFFED BY SLAVE LABOR!! THEY HAVEN’T PAID THEIR EMPLOYEES IN MONTHS. It seems to be a common problem in Maldives that they hire employees from neighboring poorer countries and then don’t pay them for months or at the rate promised. I had no idea that was happening at the place I was staying! I will be contacting the Labor Authority Office to report Mr. Riza of 11s Design Construction and Consultancy that owns Dhigurah Retreat Beach. The building was nicely maintained. Theti and Rasel were amazing and really made me feel welcome and taken care of. Theti created a beautiful welcome sign out of tiny flowers like they do in her native Indonesia. The property manager, Saneeh, is in charge of arranging the excursions. I asked for details before I even arrived and was quoted prices higher than I found in Maafushi, and the Maafushi boats come all the way to and from Dhigurah to see the same sea animals. Then I spent three days asking for and being denied opportunities to do activities. The one whale shark excursion I did negotiate to include 7 people I met from a nearby hotel was a complete disaster. Saneeh ignored me the entire time and directed the boat to leave the whale shark area an hour early and we were the only ones to miss seeing it. I had to go find someone in the village with a boat to hire by myself and book an extra day to stay and see a whale shark. When I tried to pay my bill to leave Saneeh tried to add extra charges and ignored me again as I stood at the desk. I finally told him to get the payment through Booking if he wouldn’t take my money. Then I left to find another room for my extra night. He somehow contacted all the people on the island in that 10 minute walk and told them I didn’t pay so they wouldn’t give me a room. OMG 😱 I wish I had seen the other reviews that said he did the same things to them. He later came and found me and tried to make things right but it was all SUPER shady and I felt like I was being seriously manipulated the entire time. If you’re looking for trustworthy people, there’s a small guesthouse owned by Dhigurah locals, Mohosin and Fahima, called Dhiveli Experience (dhiveliexperience dot net) They are great generous warm-hearted people that easily made up for my previous bad experiences.
