Offering free WiFi and located a short 30-minute ride on speed boat from Velana International Airport, Sandy Heaven Maldives is set in South Male Atoll. My mom and I had the most incredible time here! Gulhi is by far one of the most beautiful islands I’ve ever seen! The hotel is right next the beach! The staff and manager are the sweetest people ever!!! They were so lovely and treated us so well! They surprised us with the cutest decorations and cake for my moms birthday! Honestly we had the best experience thanks to them! The room is nice and very clean, the breakfast is delicious, the lobby is beautiful especially at night and the location is perfect! I would highly recommend staying here if you visit Gulhi! It’s absolutely stunning! Thank you Sandy Heaven for the best time! We will be back again!!!
If an island paradise of chic simplicity in a charming adults-only tropical setting is what you need, the white sand and azure waters of Anantara Veli Resort will provide the perfect setting. The water was amazing!!! It is the most beautiful water I have ever seen. The over water bungalow was situated perfectly with the most perfect view. Beware when booking though that you don’t get a bungalow that is perched above sand and very little water. The staff we lovely and very attentive too!
Offering a restaurant, Tropic Tree Hotel Maldives is located just a minute away from the beautiful white sands of Gulhi. Free WiFi access is available. This was one of the best holidays ever (we spent there 11 days! so believe me I know what I am talking about). Hotel stuff is extremely helpful, they do everything to make you feel comfortable. Beach is very clean, with free chairs. Hotel also provides free water. Breakfast was filling, with lots of choices. Each dinner we were also eating there - all dishes were tasty and nicely done. You should try calamari! Transportation is very easy and cheap - public ferry is easy to catch and it is only 2$ (we took it several time to walk in Male - which is quite interesting to explore). To go back to the airport we took the speedboat (25$ pp) due to early departure - hotel will help to arrange if needed. It will take you directly to the airport. There is very nice gift souvenirs shop - highly recommended - hotel can help you with how to find it.
Stay in Anantara Veli: simply wonderful, best scenery ever! Clear waters, very warm... couldn’t be better... Mahir was our guesthost. He is very professional, considerate, understanding and caring. All staff are caring and very professional. Cleaning is 100%! All facilities are tidy and clean. Food is amazing, very tasty and with a great selection. Definitely a place to stay and enjoy your time with your partner. Can go wrong with Anantara Veli
House reef is dead and you can only find some small fishes there. The iconic swing located in the see has only one seat left The beach is awesome - it's long and clean. The best restaurant is located right on the beach. Almost no shops accept credit cards and many restaurants bill you in local money.
I liked most that it is a very small and quiet island. No cars, no bikes, no dogs, no parties, no night life. Only peace. Exactly what I needed. Difficult to get vegetarians food. But I adjusted finally. There is a small power station which gives permanent background noise. Most of people did not pay attention to it. But I am sensitive, so it took me some time to get accustomed to it.
the island is small you can walk it in half an hour ... it is perfect if you are interested in knowing about its culture, there are not many tourists, the beach is beautiful! We ate at two buffet..with 10usd you can eat 2 people. You can do diving, sand bank, snorkel, motorcycle in water, kayak, banana, etc.
The resort is a paradise.. we had a marvelous stay in anantara Dhigu. The sunset over water villa is sooo nice.. The staff, facilities, food and most of all the place, it is amazing!! We will definitely come back on this place..
It's a small intimate island. There are 4 restaurants and a few hotels. You can walk around the island in 10 minutes! Gulhi Island is a great place to swim, dive, surf and read a book. Zero night life and zero alcohol! On the down side the locals seem to be struggling with what to do with garbage. (I'm told it's getting better.) You will see way too much trash but it's the same everywhere in the Maldives except in the expensive resorts.
