I just returned from Maafushi, Maldives, and already miss it greatly. My friend and I truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely and very homy guesthouse, which is 3mn walk from the beach. Maafushi island is experiencing a mushrooming of modern hotels nowadays; it was therefore very refreshing to stay in this cute, clean and green place, where the entire... More

We booked Stingray Beach Inn, but when we were met at the jetty by Ibrahim he advised they had built a new place called Suntan Beach and we could be upgraded to this one for free. Of course we took up the offer. We had an upstairs room, spacious with great ensuite and views to the sand and water. The... More

I really loved this place. Very quaint, pleasant guest house with comfortable good-sized rooms and a garden / restaurant full of palms and hammocks. Staff was very helpful and professional and friendly. The hotel is on a side-street but it's only a five minute walk to the beach. Some great excursions are offered and the restaurant is good and not... More

When we reached Maafushi after 1 hr and 30 min boat ride, we were welcomed by one of the staff Ismael who throughout our stay has... More

I warmly recommend the Stingray Beach Inn on Maafushi. It's owner Ibrahim and his staff look after you with care. The food in the inn's own restaurant is the best on the island and the menu is huge. The food is made from the scratch after your order, so it is really fresh, but of course takes a while to... More

Stingray provides a welcome haven of excellent friendly service where nothing is too much trouble for the excellent staff, and brilliant owner/manager, Ibrahim. In a beautiful setting, the 10 bedrooms/suites are extremely well serviced with welcome air conditioning and mini bar (sans any alcohol, unfortunately!!) Daily snorkelling trips, and optional excursions to nearby resorts, night fishing trips and a private... More
