Offering a year-round outdoor pool and views of the sea, Triton Beach Hotel & Spa is located in Maafushi in the Kaafu Atoll Region, 16 mi from Male City. Everything was perfect. The staff, the room, the location, the food, everything. Its really close to the bikini beach and we can ask for beach towel and the sunbed for free. They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner. They also can arrange excursions for us. I surely will come back in the future and promote this hotel to my friends who want to visit maldives
Located in Maafushi, Maafushi Village features a garden and a terrace. Among the facilities of this property are a restaurant, a 24-hour front desk and room service, along with free WiFi. I like everything, location, service, cleanliness, staff are polite, hospitable, helpful and accommodating. A good value of money. I would like to come back again and stay in the same hotel.
Located in Maafushi in the Kaafu Atoll, Republic of Maldives, 16 mi from Male City, Hotel Alaka features a private beach area and water sports facilities, and guests can enjoy a meal at the... Amazing stay at Alaka! They were so helpful even before I arrived over messenger trying to figure out transportation. They waited for us at the dock and drove us to the place (even tho it was really close). The guys there are awesome! Super chill and friendly. The service we got we felt like we were in a 5 star hotel. Buffet breakfast, room cleaned everyday, stocked with water, comfy beds and A/C. We were able to use the bicycles there which was nice! They give you free beach towels and snorkel gear. They offer lots of tours at a reasonable price.
Located on Maafushi Island, Sun Shine View features air-conditioned rooms with free Wi-Fi. The guest house has its own restaurant serving local and Continental food. A tour desk is also available. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good, especially the local food.
Located on Maafushi Island, Stingray Beach Inn offers a relaxing getaway and a cozy atmosphere. This is a small hotel with only ten rooms in the style of a traditional Maldivian house with a feel of surfer hut. There is a beautiful court with hammock, Jacuzzi and Palm trees to relax and enjoy the evenings with a nice passion fruit juice. The staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful; they made us feel at home and did their best to make us happy. The communication via email prior the travel was very smooth and everything was organised as requested for when we arrived. We also loved all the excursions offered to snorkel and visit other islands. Location is 2min walk from the bikini beach. Food is simple but tasty with different type of cuisine. The rooms are modest but have everything needed. If you prefer something a bit more modern, the Triton, the sister-hotel of Stingray, in the same street is lovely too. We went there to use their facilities. The staff is super nice and the massages at the Spa are really relaxing. Thank you Ibrahim, Asif, Ahmed, Shard and all the other ones to have made our stay unforgettable!
If your planning to come to maldives on a budget then maafushi is your place to be. People here are so nice and friendly. and souveniers are cheaper to buy here than the airport or in the city. Don't expect the 5 star beach like hotels that people expect when they hear maldives. Its better to book your day trips and excursions here since its super cheap and really affordable. and many tour companies to choose and compare. The waters are all the same. anywhere you go in maldives. wether its in a private island or in maafushi or even in male city..
If you want to interact with the locals, then stay at Maafushi. Everything is more affordable in the island and there are a lot of tour agencies and hotels that provide daily excursions such as snorkeling or water activities. Enjoyed our stay here!
Maafushi offers many activities and tours are fairly cheap. The two bikini beaches are nice but can get crowded, sunchairs are available for 5$ but completly optional. Food options are generally fair but we found the buffet outside Arena hotel bland and uninteresting. There are several small shops with most necessities available.
Small island, 40 mins walk is enough to get around the island. From airport to maafushi, u will have only speed boat service and it cost 20usd per pax. There is no public ferry available now a days. 2-3 days are more than enough to enjoy in maafushi. U will enjoy bikini beach, water sports, snorkeling,.. etc. in maafushi. It’s crowded compare with other private island. Still it’s cheap n best.
Maafushi - quite big local island with huge variety for dining. Many cafes and restaurants serving different kind of food, including local one. Fresh passion fruit juice is amazing there. Beach - good, but very small, only tourist are there. Sunbeds are chargeable - 5USD per day (up to your choice). Many locals shop for tourist shopping. Maafushi is that island where you need to come for diving and water sports activities, else you will be bored. Not recommend to stay more than 2 nights.
We went during Ramadan, and not too much of a crowd. Understand it could get very crowded otherwise. Lovely people, nice small restaurants, good dive and water sports facilities, even safe for the kids - even our 6 year old granddaughter loved the water sports and snorkeling in the ocean!

I went to Maafushi and staying at crystal sand for my honeymoon trip. The hotel was very comfortable, clean and near to the beach. The best part about staying here are the warm hospitality from the all the staff. The reservation manager (Jack) is very friendly and helpful. They will try their best to fulfil the request and make the stay and all excursions activities enjoyable and fun. ps : must try the “Sizzling Chocolate Affair” from the restaurant, simply delicious.

The best hotel in Maafushi with 5 stars services. Location right on the bikini beach with stunning views of the ocean. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They made every effort to make us feel comfortable and happy. Very good internet. Also great variety of food options and very delicious. All the prices are reasonable, you get more than what you pay. We'll definitely choose Kaani Grand Seaview when we'll come back to Maldives.

Maafushi is a very nice island to be on in the Maldives. From here you can do excursions that Arena provides. Everything was well organized, from check-in to checkout. The staff was very kind and always smiling. Al Amin from the restaurant was in particular very funny. Amam who did cleaned the room was also very nice and did a very good job. Thank you Arena for our unforgettable trip to the Maldives.

Ystävällinen ja palvelualtis henkilökunta. Käytiin hotellin reissulla snorklaileen ja yökalastaa. Saatiin olla kaverin kanssa kahdestaan! Suosittelen. Aamupala ok. Paahtoleipää, yhdenlaista hedelmää, paikallista tonnikalatahnaa, tortillalettuja, kahvi/tee. Paistettu nakki+kananmuna. Kahvi aina ilmaista. 0.5l/pv vesi kuului settiin. Hyvä sijainti. Perustarpeet täyttävä majoituspaikka.

The toilet is clean, no smell Not far from where speedboat drop you Not far from Bikini beach (maafushi itself not that big) Staff very helpful, just tell them what you need (speedboat,dinner buffet, snorkeling trip) They upgraded our room facing the beach(we went in July which is low season they said) For snorkeling trip, the hotel combined us with next hotel and the staff is awesome

I can’t recommend this hotel enough - from the fantastic location with balconies overlooking the ocean, to the friendly and helpful staff, to the best food on the island (e.g. try the sesame tuna) to all the excursions the hotel offers. Many thanks to the entire Velana staff for making our stay at the hotel so enjoyable! Missing Maafushi already and hope to be back soon!

Beautiful hotel and very friendly staff. Michael aka magic mike, aka MJ was SO friendly. He helped us arrange every trip and was very honest and reasonable. It was a ‘salesy’ way. After all we went to Maafushi especially for snorkelling and Michale helped us do exactly that and more! The trips were great fun.

Everything. The room was very clean. The bathroom was very clean. AC was great. Food was good ( we only had breakfast). The hosts were very welcoming. It felt like home. And the best part is that we are directly contributing to the maafushi economy by staying in hotels run by native people.

We stayed only for one night, but it was great experience. We very impressed by the attitude, we were meeting in the port when we arrived and walked back when we were leaving. Velana is the cosiest hotel on the island. With beautiful interior, delicious food and friendly staff. By the way the hotel excepts credit cards, not only cash as many other local places. The room was very nicely planned (no cheap materials) equiped with everything you may need including shower cosmetics, kettle and safe. The hotel is perfectly clean! Breakfast variety is also very good, especially compared to other places in Maldives. Bikini beach is in 5 min walk. There are a few places right on the bikini beach, but they are noisier and there is the construction going on just nearby. I definitely recommend to stay in Velana if you decide to go to Maafushi!

Great value for money, stay on Maafushi and travel to resorts for reasonable price. Also when you travel with kids over 12 years old resort will charge you full price for kids plus very expensive transfer fee. You can travel to Masfushi with local ferry or ask Kaani for speadboat for only 20$ that is bery reasonable as resort will charge you even 250$ per person per transfer. The people working in Kaani Village and Spa are very open to help and they will takie very good care of you. You have around 10 different resort you can travel for a day trip and also many snoorkling options. It’s so much intetesting than staying all time with one resort and just see one reef.

amazing place with amazing service. you can hardly find something that could be improved. Benjamin (the manager) is all the time around talking to guests making sure all our wishes come true. Everyone, really everyone on the staff is extremely nice and constantly trying to make our stay memorable. This place is a fantastic spot to relax and unwind with fantastic food and menu that changes daily, daily free yoga and nice snorkeling around the island which kids love.
