Happy Life is a cozy little guest house in the cheerful island of Diffushi. The management and staff are very friendly but yet professional. Food is good and fresh. The surroundings are very quiet and the sea if beautiful. The presence of locals on the island does not interfere with the privacy as the guest house has a private beach... More

There is a relaxing tranquil atmosphere created in Happy life that you don't get staying in most places. We had a 1 week stay and were served tremendously. The grounds are a tropical paradise. Outside is breathtaking. The two rooms were of a good size and had everything one needs. The food is fabulous and fresh. The stuff of Happy... More

We have spent 8 days with another couple travelling with us. Other than us there were 2 couples and that's all! No crowds, no noise, just chill out. Check out the Indian Ocean Adveture for snorkeling and you can see turtles, rays and if you are lucky, sharks. Also take the private sandbank tour. Take a look at my photo... More

We visited for a total of 3 nights, and absolutely loved it. The food was delicious and the staff at the guest house ensure that we had everything that we needed. The rooms are unpretentious but very tastefully done - upstairs ones are nicer and more private. We went for the all-inclusive package, and did not spend a single cent... More

I visited the Happy Life Maldives Guesthouse on Dhiffushi together with my girlfriend for 8 days during January 2014. Transfer to the guesthouse -Pickup at the airport didn’t work. After some phone calls and a 1h delay we met our guide. -We spent half of the day in Male. I cannot recommend that city to anybody: too many hectic people,... More

This intimate lodge with four guest rooms was the first ever guesthouse on Dhiffushi Island and has much experience and quite a history of providing top-notch hospitality to their guests. The friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and excellent cuisine. Hassan, the owner, is a fine example of Maldivian hospitality and is always ready to give you an in-depth tour of the... More

With my husband and our two little girls, I spent in this small guest house 10 wonderful days. The reception was great and during our holiday Hussan and his staff did not miss anything, trying to satisfy all our demands. The rooms are basic, but very clean. The beach is wide and beautiful and all available to guests. The food... More

Pleasant room on the upper floor with attached bathroom (not hot water). The stairs to upper floor of 2 rooms would be a little tricky for less able people but there are 2 rooms too on the ground floor. A/C in the rooms. There are sea views from the small upstairs veranda but you have to look to the side... More

We stayed as a family of 4. Not cheap, but it offered what we wanted. We had a bad start with the pick up boat being 1.5 hours late. Puzzling when we'd paid 230 dollars for a one hour journey. We were disappointed not to be offered any compensation. When we arrived, the welcome, service and location were marvellous. The... More

After many hours spent searching the Internet I was delighted to come Cross this gem of a guest house that made a trip to the Maldives possible. As backpackers, resorts really weren't our style especially when you have to add on the cost of speed boat/sea plane transfers on top of food/accommodation. While staying on a local island seemed like... More
