Nice Maldives experience at an affordable price.
I booked a room with half-board. Breakfast is ordinary, but the buffet dinner prepared by the chef, Saiful, is just excellent. The Inn is less than 100m away from the beach. The stretch of beach is quiet and has nice tree shades right at the water edge. There is no sandfly on the beach, which is a great blessing to beach goers. Unfortunately, sewage pipes discharge raw sewage into the sea close to shore, right in the swimming and snorkeling area. One has to swim in the up-current to avoid the unpleasant discharge. I was told by the Inn manager that the problem will be fixed in two years' time. We will see. (I must say that this has nothing to do with the Inn, but is a problem that the local island officials need to address)
Pros: The manager Rizvi, chef Saiful and staff Amin are all cheerful and helpful. The room is spacious, and I like the outdoor shower. Dinner is delicious.
Cons: The Inn should provide body wash and shampoo. Bottled water could be provided just like other similar establishments. These are just simple gestures.
