This small hotel hotel does have its own private beach and is also very close to the public beach. The team does everything to give customers the best. The rooms are basic but clean with airco and warm showers. The bed is very hard but you get used o it after 2-3 nights. They offer all kind of trips including... More

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

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
