Hello there, Goby Lodge or Amazing Novilu. I was wondering if anybody has been staying in one of the lodges of those 2 islands in Southern Ari Atoll. We are about to decide if staying 3 nights in Goby Lodge in Mahibadhoo or in Amazing Novilu.. They both got good rating on TA. specially in they're service. Does anybody knows a bit more about the condition of the lodges, are they newish and clean and near the beach?
we know we can't sun bake in bikini but we can if we go on day trips etc. also lots of excursions can be made and they are cheaper then the resorts.
Is the island very dirty with garbage, broken glass on beach etc? We would like to experience the real Maldives without getting ourselves and our kids in any danger.
And another question please: are insects a lot more aggressive in the inhabited islands? Any efficient mozzie repellent?? October travellers.....AND THANK YOU!
