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

I stayed here for 14 days in april and it was just like I had imagined it. Vanessa patiently answered all the questions I had on forehand, and I had a few, as this was my first holiday alone. In two weeks I absolutely perfectly got used to being on this lovely small island, doing nothing, reading, swimming, snorkeling, looking... More

Me and my girlfriend have spent amazing 7 nights (4th to 11th of May 2013) on this beautifull island. Didn't want to stay on resorst with hundreds of other people and for thousand $ and this is definitely the best you can choose.
