I spent with my husband one week in Ukulhas in one of the three Beach Villa bungalows. For what I've seen and red, Ukulhas is one of the best local islands in Maldives and Beach Villa is the best accomodation there.
The great astonishing beach is just one step away from the guesthouse. House reef, directly accessible from the beach, is amazing; corals have began to revitalize and it's full of different kind of fishes. There are also turtles, stingrays and small sharks.
The setting of the guesthouse is really nice, full of plants, tree and flowers.
The rooms are new, comfortable and well equipped. Each room has a beautiful private outdoor area.
All staff is very friendly and always available for any help or request. Food is also very good here. A great place with great people.
The location is really amazing the private beach is yours, with breakfast served on it, watch the colours change all day long, watch silver fish schools dancing in the sun.
Eat all you want made to order, home style. Service with a smile. The island is local but with everything that you need, including an excellent Thai restaurant.
We stayed for three nights and then moved to a Island Resort, Our grand kids and all of us kept wanting to go back to the Beach villa.
For exclusive excursions Yako is the best, he is one of the three brothers who own the Villa. We did fishing, swimming with the Manta Ray, and feeding the fish on picnic island all really 5 star treatment under a vigilant and safe eye. The sea in the Maldives is just enchanting but not for weak stomachs. The boats and people very decent and there is really no rooking. The feeling at the Island resorts is not the same as you have to cough up a fortune for every venture.
If you're looking for a local and authentic guesthouse near the beach, this place is the best!
We stay in Beach Villa for one week with full board option and this stay was definitly a dream!
The guest is perfectly situated, only 2 sec from the bikini beach (by the way, it's so beautiful, the view is breathtaking!) and not far from the jetty.
The room was clean and really well equiped: kingsize bed, sofa and TV, minibar, fan, aircon, dressing, nice bathroom... The 3 rooms have their own private terrace wich is really pleasant and the garden is soooo beautiful, many flowers and tropical trees, shells everywhere, we felt at home on the first day!
The food was excellent, nothing to say, it was always delicious and there are so many choices! You have to try the Maldivian breakfast with Roshi: delicious!
We have practically done all the excursions and all of them were perfect, I can't tell which one was my favorite, too difficult!
The best part was the people who run the guesthouse: Zamicko, Yakko, Chiko and all the family, they are so helpfull and friendly, we were so sad to leave that place! We will recommend that place without hesitation. :)
To finish we loved the fact that the island is still preserved, no big hotels and superficial lagoons, the nature around the island is so beautiful and peaceful, in two words: PERFECT HOLIDAYS !
My partner and I had such a fantastic time at Beach Villa Ukulhas. Let me begin with our hosts.
The business is family run. We were welcomed by two of the brother Yakko and Zihatte, who were so lovely. They were warm and genuine and immediately made us feel at home. Their communication is great and before and after I'd booked I'd been in contact with other brothers Zamicko and Mohamed, who were always on hand to answer any question I had.
I can honestly say they went above and beyond during our stay and it was easily some of the best hospitality we've ever received on any holiday.
The villas are gorgeous and photos don't really do them justice. Outside are beautiful gardens where you can dine. Each has its own porch, where you can also dine. And we loved the size of the room, which has everything you might need.
The beach is literally a 10 second walk away. This is a private section for the villas guests. Even on a rainy day it's beautiful and at night you can see bioluminescent plankton.
The villas are a great location on the island, which is small enough to walk around in about 30 minutes.
We mostly ate at the villas. The menus had a lot of options for all tastes and our hosts deliver the room to our rooms.
The Maldivian options are prepared by our hosts' sisters and are delicious. Try the breadfruit curry. Plus our hosts also have a heap of activities including swimming with manta rays (which we did).
We found all prices beyond reasonable.
Beach Villa Ukulhas offers a five star experience, it's one of my favourite places I've stayed worldwide.
Zamicko and the whole gang (family actually) took care of me and family really well. My girls who are 10, 8 and 2 years old were in constantly good hands. At picnic island when we were stuck on the island during a rainstorm. Yako assures us and put us at ease and also ensures that the kids are taken care off.
Chiko, great singer/guitarist who will enchant you with his crew and take care of the mundane needs at the villa.
we stayed at amazing villa since friend of mine higly recommended.
it was awesome more that we expected.
first of all, all hosts are very friendly and they are so helpful whenever we need something.
there is beach just in front of villa.
In the morning, bright sun, sound of nature such as wave of sea, birds make your start of day very happy,
At night, full of stars make you feel comfortable before you go to bed.
I heard from yackko(one of host) that they decorated by themself inside and outside of villa.
in room, it was decorated by wooden stuff which is quite romantic.
in the garden, there are full of beautiful plants and colorful flowers.
hosts will guide you so many activities such as sand bank, snorkelling, fishing.
you can enjoy maldivian dishes which is interesting.
i'm pretty sure that you will get unforgettable memories if you come and visit here.
i hope you to have these experiences like us. !
We stayed at Beach Villa Ukulhas in 07/2017 as a family with 2 kids (6 & 9 years). We love this beautiful guesthouse! The garden is like a little paradise full of flowers . You have a lot of privacy there. The room was so wonderful decorated when we arrived! There was even a hairdryer. The beach is very close to the villas. For swimming the beach was perfect, for snorkeling we just went down the bikini beach for a few minutes than it's perfect.
The Beach Villa is a family run guesthouse and all family members we got to know we're very sympathic! Zamicko was taking care for us, answered all our questions very patiently , Zihakko is a unbelievable good guitar player - thanks to him and his friends of the band, Yakko went to excursions with us- he showed us how to catch octopus!
We can highly recommend the sandbank excursion trip- this was an amazing experience with the fish feeding point! Our last day we asked Zamicko for a trip to the small sandbank picknik island right in front of Ukulhas- so we had a few hours really our own island with plenty of hermit crabs and perfect snorkeling- we all loved it there!
The place is absolutely family and kids friendly!
