Score from 299 reviews Very good
Easy access to beach and dining. Only 4 rooms, so very private. As a scuba diver, didn't have to worry about entering a crowded lobby with wet clothing and carrying gear. Large drying rack provided in room. Breakfast in open air, sand floor space. Two choices for breakfast. Western- eggs, weiners, juice, fresh fruit and toast. Maldivian- fresh Maldivian "Tortilla" with tuna mixture, juice, fresh fruit.AC Worked great, small fridge available, beach towels and umbrellas available.
Initially, disappointed with room due to pain chipping off some concrete on wall and no window. Please do not prevent this from ruining your decision to stay here. Mohammed is excellent. Friendly,and accommodating. Not informed of additional charge for soda and water in fridge. Not expensive but didn't expect it. About $2.00 usd per soda. Thought of asking about the price of minibar items but spaced it.
The location is near the beach
Since it was Ramadan, I couldn't eat out but had to skip lunch as none of the staff was available at noon.
Very clean room, nice bathroom, ac, wi-fi speed ok with only few short blackouts. Stuff were ok, breakfast also ok incl. fruits, cofe, egs, toasts... Beach was little bit smaller than I supposed it is bud also clean with good access to the sea.
the beach very beautiful
too many flies
Island Relaxing is a lovely place. The rooms are clean and very comfortable and modern. The staff were very helpful and I felt at home there as a female travelling on my own. The proximity to the beach of only a hundred metres or so was also a big bonus.
The breakfast was good, but my tuna toast or was a bit burnt. There wasn't a credit card machine, and they would only accept US$ for the room bill, so I ended up changing some local currency back into Dollars and loosing about £6 in the exchange at the local shop. They had snorkel gear for one person, but it was really old and let a lot of water into the snorkel. Although Island Relaxing is a perfect haven itself, the island of Maafushi is seriously let down by the rubbish accumulating on the beaches. On the main tourist beach, I ended up picking plastic rubbish up off the beach and out of the water and that beach is pretty clean compared to the rest of the island. I also felt uncomfortable as a lone female, due to the Muslim community. I was approached in the water when snorkelling by a man fully clothed and he followed me on my walk in a remote part of the beach. I also hadn't realised until I got there that no alcohol is allowed on Maafushi. Although not a huge issue for me, I would have quite liked a cocktail or two!
Apr 18, 2014 Super helpful and friendly staff Yummy fresh food Large, comfortable room and bathroom Extremely clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location - on the clean side of the island, with private beach where to sunbath in bikini Adaptor for plug and beach towels provided. ...100% recommended!
Everything was perfect, so highly recommend this accommodation.
Close to beaches. to see sun rise & sun set in walking distance. The water is perfect. We will be back some other times and will refer to our friends.
Island Relaxing is super close to the swimming beach, which is excellent! The standard room we received was very nicely put together and comfortable. I loved the breakfast we had every morning during our stay. The staff is wonderful and they truly want you to have comfortable and relaxing stay at their hotel. In addition, I recently left the Maldives and accidently left my ring on top of the refrigerator, which was in our room at Island Relaxing. The staff emailed me and told me that they would send it to me in the US and they would take care of the charges for shipping. I thought that was very generous of them and I’m truly grateful. This ring is a precious keep sake and they are wonderful for sending it back to me. I highly recommend this hotel to anybody!!!
This is very minor, but the Wi-Fi was a little slow at the hotel. Otherwise, the hotel is amazing and a wonderful place to stay!
The situation is good because next to the tourist beach Breackfast is good
The personel was not kind, invisible, they stay only on facebook, they dont speak english at all. We would like to be picked up at male by the hotels facilities sharing with other people. The receptionnist tell us a price, we accept it but he never comes, so we wait 2h for nothing. When we finally arrive taking another boat, the owner tell us that it was our fault before saying "hello"... the excursions are almost double price than other hotel. The hotel dont propose to find other people to reduce the price while others hotel are doing that. be carefull, all their prices dont include taxes! normally they give you towel for the beach, but they never propose to us.. we had to ask for every thing! Even for the cafe on the breakfast... we would really don t advice you to stay in this hotel... they are so many and cheaper ones.
One of the best located hotels on this island, nearby the only good beach. We loved the Maldivian breakfast. The personnel was helpful.
The only view of a close wall from the window (at least it has a window :-)). Take enough cash in USD (or MRP) otherwise you will pay extra!
Friendly and helpful staffs. Hatif (sorry if i spell wrong), one of the staff here even help us to find the life jet for free. This is one of the closest inn to the beautiful beach in Maafushi, the reason why we chose to stay. fresh juice served on arrival. Breakfast were very nice!
should we knew that 3.8% surcharge on credit card payment, we would have exchanged enough money and paid cash instead.
the bedroom and bathroom are excellent and clean! the staff there are very very nice and friendly! location also very good . also near to the beach. if have time, will return !
Guest House Island Relaxing is one of the best on the island. It is located on the best beach of the island, very close to the sea. the owner of guest house is very kind and helpful. He helps you in organizing travels around the atoll, can always give good advice and help in any problem. We recommend to stay in this guest house for everyone who want to visit this island .
Very nice, small and cosy family hotel, where you can enjoy the authentic atmosphere of a Maldivian village. Friendly and helpfull staff. Clear rooms, good wi-fi connection and lots of TV channels, including Russian ones. Plus, they change towels every day and can arrage layers once you decide to go to the local beach.
Hotel location leaves much to desire. There are a lot of construction work around and it causes some discomfort. The hotel is situated next to the "best" beach at the Maafushi island, but this is not what one expects of the Maldives. Thus taking one day tours to the distant "bounty islands" will be a must, so be prepared for extra spendings.
Excellent help from Abdul and other staff..Awesome place to stay with 'feel at home'.
I was stayed at this hotel from 12 till 14 of november 2013 and I like everything. The staff is very helpful, kind and friendly. The hotel located near the clean beach with beautiful palms. Everything in the hotel is clean and new. I very reccomend this excelent hotel to everyone. Im sure that i will come back exactly to this hotel.
Very nice and and flexible staff. They did everything we wanted from them (snorkeling, diving, bbq and so on...). They even allowed us to use the kitchen :-) If you decide to stay in Maafushi island the Island Relaxing is for sure the good choice. People on the island are very friendly. Use this unique possibility to learn local life that would never be possible in resorts.
Mosquitoes can be annoying. But this is the case everywhere in Maldives
there are only 4 rooms and you eat dinner all together as a family. the owner is a very helpful and kind person. very clean and new place. the nearby beach is 1 minute walking distance and you may wear bikini which is a luxury thing to do in a local island. very nice and beatiful island, nature. easy to reach via 2 usd ferry.
Very close to the tourist-beach. Friendly and flexible staff.
Clean nice hotel, spacy rooms. Toilet/shower room is in good condition. A/C.
The staff did not tell me how much a speed boat to the hotel, which they send after you, would cost. Is it supposed by default that a person arrving at Maldives is ready to give 200$ for half an hour boat trip? The same trip by public ferry costs 2$.
