Visited Maldives this month and chose this place because of it's offers on various activities. Since they have their own boat it is really convenient to plan our activities without depending on others. We went fishing and the catch was barbecued for us(It was amazing). Rooms are comfortable and clean with hot water. Breakfast did not have a lot of... More

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at Maafushi and the Arora Inn. The beach on the North part of the island was covered for tourist so women were sun tanning in bikinis and it was great to swim and sun bathe at that location. The staff was amazing, their prices on excursions were great and they went... More

I came to Maldives as a solo female traveler for the first time and not sure what to expect. Arora inn is very charming, with a gorgeous terrace and clean and tidy rooms. Staff was most friendly and helpful. I feel very safe and well taken care here. Strongly recommend the inn.

I was pretty skeptical about staying here initially because it was significantly cheaper than the other hotel options in Maldives and was worried that my experience here would be a let down. Well, those worries were unfounded because the beach here was beautiful (not directly in front of the hotel but just a short walk away), service was excellent, everyone... More

great stuff, great hotel! Maafushi is nice place to overnight stay and excursions over the day. Breakfasts not great, but OK. Have it's own restaurant with good food and cheap prices. Wifi works fine, but a bit slow. Only one minus - bad smell in shower.

Arora inn is a perfect choice, for anyone arriving in Maldives on a Budget, and with lots to achieve. The rooms though bit small, are quite comfortable, and housekeeping does an excellent Job keeping it tidy, replenishing supplies and with the cleaning bit. We went full board, and the kitchen offered us some variety to chose from for Lunch and... More

I chose this Inn because of its rating on tripadvisor and I have no regrets. The place is brand new and clean. It has only a few rooms so there is no crowd or noise. The buffet is simple, but tasty, and they will make you eggs if you want. The cook is great and he goes out of his... More

This guesthouse is the best I have ever stayed at! I came with a buddy looking for anything fun and different experiences at the maldives. After 2 boring days at Hulumale we went to Mafushi and Arora Inn. After a quick talk with the manager (Mohammed) we had already planned the first day with snorkeling, picnic island and nightfishing. Then... More

Arora inn. What a disappointment. This is more like one star hotel, not two. These are notes based on room 105. Room: - located inside hotel, so window of room opens to the main door hall/restaurant. -- cannot keep curtains open or open window, everybody is watching inside to room - Window curtains are thin and don't block light, so...
