Feedback on guest house islands

Hi All,

I have heared about guest house islands in Maldives. They are advertising them as economical options for accomodations and more adventures than resort islands.

Mayank, it is an interesting alternative but depends what you want from your holiday. For me alchohol is not a necessity I go for the reefs and fish. It would be interesting to know what each local island offers in the way of a good reef and whether men & women must swim seperately. Also what women are required to wear in the water.

I understand that women must be well covered when walking around. This could be a problem for someone like me from a cold country where it would be just too hot to be covered up all day & cause heat rash, heat stroke and swelling of joints.

I would like to see more clarity in the promotion of what is expected of visitors.

I stayed at Summer Villa on Maafushi in November, I'll come back and write a proper reply later.

In summary though,

It was fantastic, but depends what you want from your holiday!
