눇Come here if you want five star treatment at affordable prices. I spent a glorious 9 days at Whale Shark Inn in Feb 2016. The 4 rooms they have are beautifully appointed with lovely decor and amazingly elaborate drapes. Really makes you feel like you're in a luxury hotel. Rooms are kept spotless. Air conditioning worked perfectly. Room had a fully stocked fridge from which you could buy drinks. Free safe in the room to keep your valuables. Kettle and snacks. 3L water provided daily for free. Free Wi-Fi avaliable throughout the property. Room and beach towels provided. The communal courtyard had seating, a table and chairs and sunbeds; the area strategically planted with palms to provide shade during the heat of the day. I can't commend this property enough. I was treated like a king from the moment I arrived. Nothing was too much trouble and anything I asked for was sorted with a smile. I should like to particularly thank Mohammed, the manager, who went above and beyond the call of duty to make my stay pleasant. Thanks also to Ahmed Nafiz, the sales manager, who emailed me moments after I booked online providing me with detailed guidance on the options available to reach Maamigili from Male. I opted to travel on the public MTCC ferry which cost less than $4 for a pleasant 7hr trip on a spacious uncrowded and comfortable ferry with a clean toilet onboard. You can also take a 20min flight which costs $167 on Flybe at the time of writing. Other transfer options are also available. Whale Shark Inn also arranged all my excursions and provided a cool box with water, soft drinks and snacks for each excursion. Maamigili is Whale Shark central and these amazing fish can regularly be seen just off the coast of the island. On both the Whale Shark spotting trips I went on I was able to swim with these gentle giants. You can also go diving, turtle spotting, picnic on a sandbank, reef snorkelling, etc.

눉There were maybe two many flies in the restaurant. I know it might be inevitable but hopefully it will be improved someday.
눇Good breakfast and a big bed! We received the best hospitality we had ever had! The manager was so nice and friendly, and very helpful and responsible to us during our stay. We appreciated that very much indeed. The room was very clean and neat, with a very reasonable price. The manager made his staff clean the room so frequently that we had a very comfortable stay there. We also had a lot of fun there and we will definitely go back there someday to visit the manta rays and the whalesharks which we missed this time.
