This place is really beautiful. Every guest is respected. Great location on the island, like a little garden of Eden. Clean and comfy. Just ashsme that the restaurant staff are not confident to have a little chat each day. SHY? The manager is great. Just wants to make your hoiday the best.

My wife and I came to Stingray Beach looking for a bit of a more authentic Maldivian experience than you'd get at a big resort. We were happy with our choice - the manager Ibrahim is very welcoming and friendly - always around to give advice about where to go. The island itself is a quiet one - there isn't... More

Stingray Beach is the perfect place to chill and enjoy the local vibe of Maafushi. I'm SO happy I decided to stay there instead of a "resort" island. The rooms are great and the tropical garden grounds totally fulfill my Gilligan's Island fantasy. The tourist beach (where you can wear a bathing suit) is a very short walk away and... More

This was one of the most beautiful places we had visited in some time. The beach view is so stunning especially because of the typical white sand of Maldives. However as far as this hotel is concerned, since it was on one of the local islands, it was relatively cheaper and also buzzing with local nightlife. The hotel staff is... More

Solid selection for breakfast, thumbs up for waffles :) Dinner and lunch selection one of best on the island. Try grilled reef fish, it's the best. It's just... More

Although Stingray Beach Inn may seem out of the way - and it is - the speedboat transfers and offers of day trips made out whole holiday worthwhile. The staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble and there were so many extra things they didn't have to do to help us, but did. The food was... More

Hotel is very clean, comfortable and near the beach. They organice a huge range of excursions and you can get to know the real life of maldives. People are very friendly, honest and hospitable.
