My husband and I visited Maafushi island on the 6th of April till the 10th of April 2015. Though we didn't stay at this hotel (cuz it was fully booked) we did hear many good reviews. We had dinner here after hearing another traveller rave about it. The hotel's bbq buffet only cost us 12USD and it had an awesome... More

We did not stay here, but we came by twice during our time in Maafiushi for the awesome dinner buffet by the beach. For USD12, there was a wide selection of hot dishes, salads, desserts and grilled items. Don't expect oysters and lobsters, but the selection did hit the spot, nothing beats a nice hearty dinner after a whole day... More

So we had our honeymoon trip to Maldives in November 2014 and it was split in 2 islands and obviously 2 different hotel properties. Arena Beach was our 2nd. It is a decent hotel, but if you are going to Maafushi Island, this is the ONLY hotel you would want to stay in, else you might as well make paper... More

The staff are extremely warm and always smiling! The dinner buffets are excellent and the rooms were great. Overall, I would recommend this hotel. One disappointment - I had quite an upsetting experience with one staff member, who I felt responded very unprofessionally when they discovered I had booked a tour through a different hotel...on the other hand, my experiences...

We decided to have our honeymoon in Maldives. We stayed in Arena Beach hotel from March 18-22, 2015. The moment we reached Maafushi the hotel staff welcomed us at the jetty port. We found it unique for a hotel staff to do orientation of the room in which we didn't experience from other hotels. The room is clean with new... More

Stayed there for a weeklong trip to Maldives and wasn't disappointed! The place has a nice, welcoming aura. The staff is friendly, rooms are clean, views are amazing, room service is efficient, food is great! We didn't feel like leaving the place towards the end of the trip. In terms of cost, you'd get charged approx 150 USD / night... More

Following many recommendations for dinner on the island, we tried Arena Beach hotel's dinner buffet. It was so good we had it for 3 nights. Dinner is USD $10++ per person which is very reasonable; and the spread includes a variety of local and western. They have a pasta station where they cook spaghetti or penne to your preferences.
