This six-month-old hotel (as of Sept. 2013) is clean and pleasant. The two Bangladeshi staff -- Babu and Mohammed -- were extremely attentive and did an incredible job with the meals. Not much to do on the island if the waves are small (there are a couple surf breaks), though visitors will get a lot of reading done. The real... More

The complimentary breakfast was excellent and was authentic Maldivian. the rooms were quite spacious and comfortable. And it was less than 50 mts from where the boat docked, so we could just walk over... More

If you are looking for the real maldives, this is the place to be! Guraidhoo: 2000 habitant, 1 mental hospital, 2 mosques, 1 football filed, 1 harbour, 1 restaurant bar, 2 beaches ( no bikini ) 1 small island, (sea walk close, yes bikini ) many souvenir shops. The island is nice and "under construction-cleaning". The beaches are not "exceptional"... More

We (4 experienced divers from Austria) did a fantastic diving trip to Ifja-Inn situated at the island Guraidhoo.

The trips to several outstanding diving spots were... More
