Not just a holiday, an experience
From the moment we arrived our host Matheen made us feel welcome. Any questions we had were answered, we didn't even have to say we were thirsty/hungry, water was provided before even reaching the island, and this was a standard set throughout the holiday. The meals and drinks provided adequate variety, with flavours that enticed you to clear the plate, for myself, husband and son the portions were above average size, each meal was a credit to chef Sayid. Be sure to try Hedhikaa from one of the islands café's, tasty snacks for when you are hungry but another full meal would be too much. The island also has a couple of convenience stores, however it is rare that you require going in as you are provided with many of the things you require by the caring staff right down to the best mosquito cream I've ever used!! Do not go into the forest without it! The rooms are perfect providing Cleanliness, comfort, privacy, hot water and my husband's favourite air conditioning, all of great quality. The community feel adds to the islands idyllic setting with friends to be made for interesting evening conversation, parties and fun activities on the beach. For a small island it really has it all, each activity is amazing, we did almost every possible activity and loved each one, all felt like they had a personal touch, next time we go (we definitely plan to return!), We will go for longer (11 nights stay) to really take in the whirlwind of excitement each day offered. Experience of a lifetime

L'isola è molta bella, ha circa 600 abitanti. Qui c’è tutto, sia la spiaggia che il reef per lo snorkelling o le immersioni. C’è una bellissima spiaggia proprio davanti alla guest house anche se bisogna tenere conto che essendo un’isola abitata non si può prendere il sole in slip e reggiseno (e anche gli uomini a torso nudo in realtà sono un po’ malguardati). L’isola è abbastanza pulita, rispetto ad altre, ma permane comunque un po’ il problema della plastica e della poca consapevolezza in merito, anche se crescente. Il proprietario, Martin, è una persona squisita. Per quanto riguarda il cibo questo è praticamente al 98% di pesce, quindi rischia di diventare un po’ ripetitivo dopo 7 giorni (ma questo vale per qualunque isola delle Maldive), però era decisamente buono! La stanza era pulita, lo staff cordiale e simpatico. In conclusione tutto praticamente perfetto. Ovviamente questa è un’esperienza che va fatta capendo che la ricchezza e il valore sta nel vivere qualche giorno su un’isola locale e accettandone i pro e i contro; non è un resort a 5 stelle e visto il costo estremamente basso la qualità è più che alta. Il venerdì ci hanno portato, gratis, sull’isola di Aidhoo, sulla quale Martin sta costruendo una serra per la coltivazione di meloni. La spiaggia e il reef erano eccezionali. Per quanto riguarda il trasporto abbiamo preso la speedboat, 50$, all’andata, e l’aereo da Dharavandhoo, 100$, al ritorno.

Guesthouse en una isla local ideal e inolvidable
El guesthouse es muy moderno y está muy bien cuidado. Cómodo en todos los sentidos. Además, el trato especial que te da Martin, manager del hotel, hará que tu experiencia sea inolvidable. Hará todo lo que esté en su mano para que tu estancia cumpla con tus expectativas. Cocinero de lujo, comida muy buena. Excursiones en barco preciosas, pescar al atardecer + barbacoa, tortugas, corales, etc.
