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 stayed 6 nights at Dhiguveli. When we arrived by speedboat, the staff was waiting for us in harbor. We had deluxe room and it was big enough, huge and comfortable bed and nice and clean bathroom. There was a room service twice a day. We really appreciated that every day we got alkaline water in GLASS bottles (not plastic).
Among other things Mr.Sham helped us with everything before our arrival.
This island is just perfect place for couples, it´s paradise. We wish to come back.

I would rate our stay at Dhiguveli Maldives a loud 10/10. We enjoyed every bit of it.
The Island is a true gem, with a breathtaking sight to see wherever you look, you will fall in love with it. If you are more of a private person, this island could be your own little paradise. We landed in Male, and from there we rode the speedboat for 2 and a half hours, which was a bit of a bumpy ride, so if that would be a problem, I recommend you ask at the reception for other alternatives (sea plane or domestic flight to Male Airport). We chose the domestic flight option for the returning ticket and the lovely staff were the ones who planned everything, we didn’t even had to flinch, it was perfect, and we thank them!
The hotel meets every need you could possibly have:
* cozy (and clean!!) rooms equipped with air conditioning, mini fridge, TV, safe, WiFi, laundry service, etc.
* great food options at the restaurant. We booked the full board option, but you can also have half board or breakfast only and choose the remaining meals from the a-la-carte menu, which has no shortage of alternatives for every taste. Also the breakfast buffet is not a very complex one, but we had more than just enough every morning. (Make yourself a favor and try the tuna sandwich at breakfast buffet, it’s so good..)
* a list of activities to help you explore the beauty of the island: manta snorkeling, whale shark snorkeling, sandbank visit, kayak, romantic dinner and many more. You just ask the guide for the activity you wish to do and that’s it, you show up the next day for a new adventure, with no worries. (These are also paid extra, but it’s worth it)
* last, but not least, a helpful and friendly staff, ready to meet your every need. The reception, the restaurant, the guides and the cleaning staff were all very nice and always eager to help us experience this island the way we should. They truly made our stay worth remembering. Thank you, guys!
There is nothing I can say we disliked, the whole trip was amazing and we plan on visiting again in 5 years from now! 🤍

We have stayed at the Dhiguveli hotel for one week and our experience was amazing since the first minute. They ask our questions before we travel to Maldives, they arrange the boat transfer from Male, the coming back PCRs and all the excursions (WhaleShark and Manta Snorkeling). They rooms are big, tidy and confy. The staff takes care about you every day and they deliver new towels, even beach towels every day. They also have a rooftop restaurant (Malaveli) where the food and the staff is also the nicest people. We highly recommend as they make us feel like home. Thank you so much to all the staff for this amazing experience. We will come back!

Spent 9 nights in this small and cosy hotel. Room very comfortable and completely furnished. The terrace restaurant (Malaveli) offer genuine and tasty food. The staff is kind and always attentive to your needing. The location is close to one of the nicest beach on the island; anyway the sandbank is not impossibile to reach. Overall a taste of true maldivian atmosphere.

Dear Shamhad Saeed and Dhiguveli Hotel team ,
I’d like to express my gratitude for your warm welcome and excellent experience with your hotel.
I would definitely recommend you for the convenience of dealing with you: starting with booking, transfer from the airport to the island, fantastic restaurant, friendly & helpful staff, and ending with amazing and comfortable rooms. I would definitely say the hotel deserves 4⭐️ ranking instead of 3.
What I would arrange is eco-friendly program kind of “Let’s save the ocean”. And plan garbage bins on the seaside, or trash packs for tourists who would be happy to collect the plastic.
Special thanks to the chef and Kukoo for their great work. The menu is rich in choice, the service is gorgeous.
All in all it’s a deserved 10 points from my group (8 people)!
Thank you so much!

Here is another feedback from my group:
1.
“I would like to say a big thank you to the Dhiguveli Maldives hotel for the excellent treatment of visitors. The rooms are wonderful, neat and clean. Thanks for the comfortable mattresses and pillows! You fall asleep on them instantly😊Thanks to the friendly staff for the daily cleaning of the rooms and the change of towels. Very cozy. The best restaurant ever! The most delicious food on the island!!! And the best waiter Kuku) I fell in love with this paradise.”
😊😊😊
2.
Every day, several times a day, I thanked our leader (the organizer of the trip) throughout the rest. If it were not for his painstaking and corrosiveness in many issues, our vacation would not have been so comfortable and heavenly. Special thanks for the chosen island, it is beautiful, original. No luxury is needed when there is such beauty of nature and the ocean around! 💙 guys and girls, thank you very much for the pleasant company, we are all great! 💪🏼🥰 The hotel is super!

Dhiguveli Maldives is a comfortable, clean, and low-key accommodation on the beautiful island of Dhigurah. Located only a few meters from the 3 km long beach, it takes no more than 3 minutes to get to the bikini part of the beach where you can swim, relax, and take in the gorgeous view. There are several spots on the island where the coral is very nice - we saw many turtles and fish. One of the main things the island is famous for are whale shark excursions, but sadly we didn't see one. Instead, we did some snorkeling. A must-see is the island's long sandbank where our family spent the afternoons. The hotel has an amazing rooftop restaurant with great food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Overall, it is the perfect place to travel to as you won't ever forget about it.

My family and I really enjoyed fully our stay in Dhiguveli Hotel. The family room exceeded the standard of a 3-star hotel. The service included, among other things, comfortable air conditioning, through a daily replenished corner with a coffee kettle free of charge to daily perfect cleaning and clean beach towels. Great satisfaction with the overall service of the hotel from the pre-arrival phase and ensuring perfect cooperation with local logistics until departure.

I spent 2 weeks in the hotel which was perfect. The building is new and the room is very nice with a bed which is super comfortable and the aircon worked perfect.
The waterpreser in the shower was fantastic and towels soft. You can hear the waves from the ocean when lying in the bed with open windows.

The food at the restaurant is awesome and the waiters go a extra mile for you. Thank you very much. Especially the shrimps are wonderful. The breakfast changes daily. The fresh fruit drinks are great and the pastries all prepaired by the Sri Lankan chiefs.

The hotel arranged my domestic flight and the boat trip which was brilliant for me. The was a representativ at the international airport who welcome me.

The bikini beach is very close to the hotel and there is a lot of palm trees. I wish there were more sunbeds at the beach. You can walk along the beach or through the jungle on a path to the sandbank where you can swim and snorkel. The hotel also arrange day trips.

I would definitvely recommend the hotel to everyone which wants to go to a local island.

First line, soft beds, snow-white bed linen, magnificent breakfasts and dinners. Beautiful turquoise ocean, snow-white beach. Kind and sympathetic personnel. I will surely return. I very much miss Dhiguveli 😭. The personnel helped us to organize a direct transfer on other island of Thoddoo, it was very convenient for us. Thank you!

We were very happy at Dhiguveli hotel. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Fantastic snorkelling with whale sharks, dolphins and mantas - guided by amazing Sarah and her husband. Beaches and the whole island is a piece of paradise, most days we have been on our own, surrounded by a crystal beauty.

The drink prices in the guesthouse restaurant are slightly higher than what you can find in the island food shops. Obviously you have to keep in mind hou are in a muslim country: there are no beer or other alcoholic drinks, neither in the hotels nor in the shops inside the village.
