Stayed here in August 2014. The room is basic but clean and cosy with bathroom and aircon. It is directly on the beach. It's about 10 minutes walk from pier where the hotel staff picked us from ferry and they help us to carry our luggage in cart. In fact, we stayed in the corner room where it's sand just... More

We have spent 4 nights in WhiteShell BeachInn and had a great time! From the time of booking the email communication with the manager was easy and all questions were quickly answered. We were picked up from the pier by the manager himself and it was taken care of our luggage so we did not have to carry it. WhiteShell... More

I spent five nights at this hotel and it was perfect! It's right on the beach -- the only beach on Maafushi Island, where you can wear a bikini! The breakfast was buffet-style and also included local food, which was nice. The staff are super nice and friendly, and we had loads of fun with the guys that accompanied us... More

I stayed here for 4 nights with my boyfriend and we loved it! The hotel has it's own private beach (so ladies can wear bikinis!) Also, rooms are cleaned on a daily basis. The staff are very helpful and will arrange excursions for you (trips to neighbouring islands/snorkelling/fishing etc) It is worth visiting neighbouring islands if you want to see... More

We recently stayed three nights at WhiteShell and had a very memorable time. We had an initial hiccup with a broken ferry in Male which kept us from reaching Maafushi on the day we were supposed to and when we called the hotel, the number was not ringing. It turned out the person in possession of that number was on... More

We spent a few days here and had a great time. Our room was just in fron of the beachand ws simple but clean and comfortable. Breakfast is served on the beach or in the small restaurant. Dinners were simple but quite good. One day we expressed a wish for a crab and the next day we had a wonderful... More

Extremely friendly staff and people in general, the friendliest staff we've ever met! You have the possibility to get in touch with local culture and take excursions at an affordable price. The food was good - also for the kids. The lagoon was lovely and the reef just 30 - 40 mt off. The position is directly on the beach.... More

I really enjoyed our stay here. They have small but beautiful private beach just in front of the hotel. I also enjoyed snorkeling! I will definitely go back here, if I can have another chace to visit Maldives.

Stayed here four nights and I have to say that is more than enough. The hotel is nice, clean and staff is really friendly but Maafushi itself is not much. Many shops are closed down and not a lot of restaurant choice. Thankfully The Blue Lagoon restaurant at Whiteshell offers enough choices anyway. There are excursions available on a daily... More
