This was a great little comfortable place for a beautiful Maldives trip. The local island, though didn't provide much, but there are many beautiful places you can visit nearby. The Hotel staff and the care taker Joel were pretty nice as well. They list down all the interesting activities available for you and suggest the best ones for you. The rooms are awfully clean and comfortable. It has all what a good beach hotel requires. The only drawback we faced, as Indians and as being used to eating spice and flavored rich food, the food was a little let down. The bland preparation and the lack of variety didn't come down well with us. This in particular was not only for the hotel, but we faced this problem during the entire Maldives trip.
Please ensure the ferries are available the next day to Male. In our case, the local transfer ferries were not available due to some elections, and the staff also didn't bother to tell us. We wouldn't have known if we hadn't inquired the night before. After a little press, they did provide us a speed boat transfer the next day.
All in all, a very good place for very good price.
