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.

TME retreats Dhigurah is authentic charming place with superb service. This hotel is located at the beach. Bungalows are nicely decorated, clean, climatized, have small but charming backyard with sunbeds. Food is good, nothing luxurious but versatile and interesting. Stuff is very polite, available for every necessity. I had burn injury in Male and they were very attentive to provide me everything needed for my wound dressing. I was part of diving group and we were scuba diving every day. Everything was excellent. One more thing, this island is not resort. It has all the charm you can imagine...Maldives in real exotic presentation. I will come hear again. Looking forward to be a guest in TME.

First time in the Maldives and TME Retreats Dhigurah made it a beautiful experience. Dhigurah island is lovely, with powder sand, beautiful and clean beaches, with turquoise water all around, full of divine marine life. We had a charming room (I think they call that one Deluxe double room) just a 20m from the beach, which was cleaned every day. Staff at the hotel was always there to help or assist any way they can. I loved my Maldives vacation and hope I'll be back there again, and definitely, it will be in TME Retreats Dhigurah.

We booked a dive package in advance via email and were super happy with that decision! The communication before was good, we got help with all our answers and our transfer got organised (speed boat from Male). Service was great, from the pickup, welcoming, catering in the restaurant and very friendly staff. We booked half board which was a good decision as there aren’t that many restaurants at the island that don’t belong to a hotel. And it was nice not to worry about dining, especially after a full day of diving. Breakfast and dinner were usually as a buffet with a big variety and western style, quite tasty! Our room was very new with a nice terrace from which you can observe flying foxes in the evening- so great! Bathroom was super clean, new, good shower. The beach is just a few steps away and it’s just stunning.... I think one of most beautiful beaches in Maldives, as the bikini area is quite big. Lovely island and lovely hotel. Would totally recommend it!

We spent five nights in this place just next to fantastic beach before to next dedtinations. Diving was excellent, the Island Divers collaborate closely with this Hotel. Restaurant staff was also very nice, rather simple meals were good and reasonably priced. Much better taste of real Maldives than fancy overpriced “luxury” resorts all around here.

Thanks TME! TME is a priceworthy local resort on the beautiful island Dhigurah and this was the third time that we visited the island and stayed at TME. The rooms are simple but clean and well functioning. We also got beach towels that we were using on the beautiful bikini beach next to the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helps out with everything. We were diving with Island Divers that are connected to TME and it all worked very well. The only thing that has changed in a negative way since last visit is the restaurant connected to the hotel. It seems like both the owner and the chef has changed since last time so please get back your old chef in the restaurant for the next visit! Thanks again for a great holiday and stay at your hotel.

First I found TME on booking, very good pricing but photos of the property didn't really speak to my soul, so I chose another hotel for my stay, one of the nights I was coming back from the beach with my mom when I spotted nice location for pics which happened to be TME, I was pleasantly surprised how cute it looked from the outside, so I was curious to check the whole property with which Sadi (one of the best guest relations manager) gladly helped us, he was so patient with all my million questions, very attentive & even took to consideration my advice on renewing photos online, because all the rooms in reality looked way better than online which is rare, usually its opposite haha. All so clean & neat with cute lil decor pieces that added more charm. My favs were beachfront Deluxe double room that is only 2min walk till bikini beach, with it's own common space, laundry, kitchen and even mini pool, perfectly suitable for group of friends or a big family with kids. And nalaveshi deluxe with outdoor shower, the room was small but cozy, the tropical shower obv is a show stopper, so if u a sucker for tropical showers as I'm you'd not regret choosing this room (I chose the other hotel for it's shower & and TME's is way better trust me). I guess we liked everything so much that we happened to stay for one more day as if we were destined to stay at TME regardless, I contacted Sadi & he immediately checked the availability and got us the deluxe double room, sent his colleague to pick us up from our previous hotel, even tho its 5 min walk, oh the way they greet you at TME you will feel like you are at the luxury resort, their service is incredible, I myself work for customer service & I can surely tell that Sadi loves his job, and does everything from his heart! I recommend TME Retreats to everyone, it's the best property to stay in Dhigurah island. Can't wait for my next stay with you guys :D

I messaged some time prior to my arrival for instructions once I had arrived at Male airport which was duly provided.
The speedboat trip took 1 hour 40 minutes. On arrival a TME rep greeted us and we were transferred to the hotel. Check in was easy and a room boy carried my suitcase to my room.
The first thing I ask when checking in to a room is the tv working. I travel alone and only book rooms with a TV. The answer was no. All TVs are disconnected due to roadworks. The next morning I had words with the reception lady. I had booked my room on the 7/10 last year. If the hotel could not honour my booking then they shoukd have advised me accordingly. They failed to do so preventing me from considering other options. I was stuck paying full price for a room without a working TV. I will refrain from commenting about the person responsible for dealing with room bookings via Booking.com and associated business ethics.
My standard double room was average size and clean throughout. There was shelving for laying clothes and a desk and chair. The aircon, ceiling fan and fridge worked well. Lighting was okay.
My bed had clean linens and afforded me a good night's sleep.
The bathroom was modern looking with a partially screened off shower area. The shower had good hot water and pressure.
The lockable enclosed courtyard had 2 plastic sunbeds & a small table as well as a drying rack and short hose for washing sand off.
Breakfast was a buffet with an egg station, toaster, juices, fruits etc.
Overall, the staff were friendly and helpful. However, not being notified that there would be no working TV left a sour taste to my holiday experience.

TME Retreats is a great option for people looking for a clean and comfortable stay. The staff and team with Sadi as manager is absolutely a delight. They try their utmost to accommodate each request and are very kind and attentive. There are different styles of rooms and guests can call/write in advance if they are particular about specific room types/amenities (I was not and was happy with my room). The restaurant was one of the larger ones among the other island offerings that I could spot and it offered good food and excellent service attention. Since our main focus was diving, and TME was partnered with Island Divers (see separate review), we really had no concerns on that front. Thanks Sadi!

We stayed 6 nights at TME Retreats and highly recommend the hotel. The personel were so helpful and kind to us during our stay, especially the manager Sadi, who made sure we had all we needed or wanted. We did 8 dives with the diving company Island Divers who are connected to TME. The hotel personel and the divemasters had great contact, which resulted in super smooth and efficient mornings where the hotel arranged transport to the dive boat and packed breakfast for us.
The room had all we needed and a nice balcony facing the beach.
Great value for money and service at its very best.
We hope to visit TME Retreats again.

My trip to Maldives was a bit spontaneous - I decided to travel there 2 weeks ago and it was only 4 days difference between the time I bought the tickets and reserved a room at TME Retreats and my flight to Male.

I totally loved my stay there. The hotel manager reserved a speedboat from Male to Dhigurah and back, it is very convenient and fast indeed. You will get a welcome juice upon your arrival to TME Retreats and then will be settled. I had a huge balcony where it was very easy to dry the beach towels, the bed and pillows were amazing - I slept like a baby every night.

The personnel was always ready to help - every evening it was possible to book a diving/snorkeling tour or just have a nice chat with the guys. The breakfast was decent and variable. And for the lunch and dinner you may either stay at TME or explore some other restaurants close by.

The beach was marvellous, loved every day spent there.
Totally recommend staying at TME:)
