Best hotel on the island

Arguably the best hotel on this quaint little island community. Staff try very hard to make sure guests are comfortable and service levels are high. Location is the best and beach is so beautiful and secluded. Recommended to a budget traveler who wants to have family fun.

The best service in all of Dhiffushi

We had such a great stay in Dhiffushi. We wanted to experience local island life without the typical resort setting, and this place went above and beyond. The front desk staff was so pleasant and helpful. Jahid, always had a smile on his face and went out of his way to answer questions or accompany us if needes. The restaurant staff was always polite. Sai Babu, prepared the most beautiful outdoor beach dinner for us. It was so breathtaking. The beach is a stroll away. It was beautiful, clean, and had a Dhiffushi water sports counter available. Movich, the guy who heads this business, helped arrange a wonderful sand bank excursion with umbrellas, beach chairs, and a delicious lunch. Luckily we had the sand bank all to ourselves. It was so pristine and beautiful! Do all your activities on Dhiffushi! The other resorts are very overpriced! There are a few souvenirs shops and again, it's better to buy here. We did fishing here too and caught plenty of white and red snapper. The restaurant will cook your catch for a nominal fee. If you're looking to relax by the beach, are not expecting a resort style food spread, but generally good food, and want to fish, see dolphins, jet ski, hire a photographer (for a pvt photo shoot), visit a sandbank, experience true island life, then Dhiffushi is perfect! There is lots of construction on the island, and unfortunately areas around the island can be a bit dirty w debris, but at Rashu Hiyaa itself, it was great! Thank you!

Highly recommended

It was a 4D3N stay. The room was very clean and in a good condition. We stayed in a superior double room and it is huge. The toilet comes with a jacuzzi. I feel it would be better if it has a roof covering the jacuzzi because when it rains, we couldn't enjoy the jacuzzi. There were a variety of foods at their in-house restaurant but breakfast menu can be improved. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Overall, me & husband had a wonderful stay at Rashu Hiyaa. Highly recommended.
