I stayed there for 5 days! The staff are very helpful, if you need anything you can ask them and they will help you. Rooms are big en very clean! They clean your room and bathroom every day, and bring new towels. Lodge isn't that big. Every morning they make a fresh breakfast for you, with some fruit, sandwich, cornflakes,... More

Arena Lodge is really great value for the price we paid. The hotel is small, but clean and well maintained. The window opens to the corridor, which is ok except if you open the windows completely, people walking by can look in.

This place is so awesome. We paid tad less for 5 nights and 6 days of stay. The best value you can have in Maldives. The place is like a home. Very welcoming. Relaxing and time is like being paused :) The staffs are very accommodating and very patient and warm. We have a 17-month baby with us, so it... More

There are a lot of inn/guesthouse/hotel in Maafushi island but only Arena Beach Hotel have direct access to the beach in front of their restaurant. For the other hotel guest they need to walk at the end of the island to access the private beach, so you already have an edge if you book Arena BeThere are a lot of... More

The Hotel proposes daily excursions. In case you prefer to stay in the island, you can also find so many water activites next by the... More
