Visited Maalu Maalu as a part of a group.. Excellent service overall.. Very intimate and personalised.. Having a unique concept, this definitely worth a re visit. Do check out the coral conservation programs while you are here.. Attic rooms are great for a Triple or Quad but pointless for a Double while the stairs inside are not suitable for children... More

Best hotel I have ever been to. Perfect beaches, lovely rooms, delicious food! The structure of the place is amazing, with big open spaces, a lovely pool and beach side bars. My favourite thing was the hospitality displayed by the staff. Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone!

The whole property looks like a fire hazard and with all those thatched roofs, it is probably an inferno waiting to happen. Nice loft concept in rooms. Kids love the tree house type atmosphere. Private Jacuzzis for sharing between 4 rooms. There is a very interesting coral museum on the premises. The beach bar designed as a boat is novel... More

this was a very different experience but also a very good one, loved the place and the staff but think they need to be more educated on foreign languages such as English, the food was good on breakfast and dinner lunch has to be improved more (add a variety) other than that it was a nice place to stay.
