I had such an amazing stay at Stingray Beach Inn. The entire place was really cosy and welcoming and it was just a 5 minutes walk from the tourist beach. The hotel provides free snorkelling gears and hosts a jacuzzi and hammocks to help you relax and enjoy your stay. The staff are what made me feel most welcomed to... More

Overall: Its a perfect place to stay and explore the islands with family. I was travelling with my family (wife, kids, parents & in-laws), my second kid was less than 2yrs old, I never felt like I was staying in an unknown/insecure place from kids points of view. . Good thing is.... This hotel provides snorkeling gear, life-jacket beach umbrella... More

Like many people, we wanted to go to the Maldives so badly but we were unable to afford the $1000 pn over the water bungalow prices that you get elsewhere. Stingray Beach Inn is located on a local island (no drinking). It's a $2 ea ferry price to get there from Male (AMAZING). There are shops which are very reasonably... More

Food is excellent, that i did not even tried a single meal in other restaurants. Location is a huge advantage, very calm and relaxing. Very close to... More

The inn has a nice friendly, island laid back atmosphere. But service is definitely up to notch. I have emailed and called the hotel a few times, 2 weeks before the trip as 3 of us will be arriving separately. But the manager Ibrahim has helped to arrange everything smoothly. Room was big and clean, and can fit 3 persons... More

I cannot say enough about how great the stingray is. Best food on the island, great manager and staff, cozy rooms, 2 mins from the beach. Little extras such as beach towels, bicycles, jacuzzi, table football, make a world of difference. Also organize excursions.

We stayed in this little friendly hotel in February. The manager Ibrahim was so informative on island, possible excursion, Yunus was a great waiter not only serving in a high quality but also having close friendship with our 4 year old son. Their menu is so broad, you can find whatever you want. We tried their different pizzas, beefs, fish... More
