This is a great PADI 5 Star dive venter. The operator, Fayyaz is an experienced PADI master diver training instructor. I started with a Discovery Scuba Ive, went on to get my Open Water Diver certification and am now completing Advanced OWD certification. This is a good outfit with good equipment and facilities and within short distances foe both shire and boat dives. Highly recommended

Divers Lodge made Villingili island so memorable and rewarding for us. As a scuba diver of 25+ years I've experienced every type of dive: from luxurious five-star resort to plunging in backwards off an outboard motorboat in the Caribbean to walking into the frigid waters of Northern California to remote Easter Island.

So I speak with some experience when I say Fayyaz Ibrahim and his team have built a thoroughly impressive, enjoyable, unpretentious, and remarkable operation on this small island just a short ferry ride from Malé.

If you are looking for a reasonably-priced holiday that allows you to dive various locations in the Maldives without the overpriced pompous five-star resort experience, Fayyaz is the man to see. I first encountered him after arriving in Villingili and staying at a nearby inn. He mentioned he had just finished work on a brand-new two bedroom apartment, and would I like to see it. We decided on the spot to rent it for a few nights, given its ideal location for diving and its proximity to the shop.

Now let's be clear: you're staying in Villingili because you're a diver and you want to spend time on the boat and underwater and away from the masses. If it's the company of a hundred other tourists you seek then this isn't the place for you. But if you're curious to meet locals on a laid-back island and dive with international divemasters training and living in the Maldives then I highly recommend coordinating your trip with Fayyaz, who can also arrange a liveaboard (dive safari) experience with enough notice.

We found the simple nearby restaurants as well as the local culture of Villingili combined with Divers Lodge made for an extremely enjoyable and unforgettable experience. I observed that whether accommodating beginners or intermediate-level or even advanced rescue divers they skillfully handle every level of client. The prices were great, the hospitality was superb, and we'll be back.

We’ve been diving for 2 days with Divers Lodge Maldives team, and we had an unforgettable experience! Me and my wife both have license, but haven’t dived in last 3.5 years. After a short refresh at the reef close to the shore, we went out with boat and enjoyed current dive, saw sharks, turtles and large group of Manta Rays during our 3 boat dives.
Very friendly and professional crew (we got 1-1 dedicated, pro team dive buddys (!!!) for the dives, showing us the best of Maldives)
Last but not least, cheaper than any other dive centers we contacted during our stay both in Malé and at our resort.
Highly recommended

Divers lodge on the island Villingili provided second to none service. Fiyaaz and his brother Yasser lead the dives and are full of knowledge and experience. The whole crew on the boat and the dive masters are all lovely. Make you feel safe and have lots to talk about. All the equipment is excellent and they even had fins to fit me properly (I have very small feet and always find this a problem). Not only do they provide an excellent scuba diving expereince but they are full of infomation about the area and other dives spots on other islands. Extremely nice bunch of people and I can't wait to go back to dive with them again.

Diver's Lodge in Vilingili, just a 5 minute ferry ride from Male, offers all levels of PADI certified scuba training, snorkeling, boat trips to wonderful dive and snorkel sites in the Male Atoll. Fiyaaz, Yasser and all "the boys" are extremely knowledgeable, safety conscious and professional. They will provide all the gear you need and will do everything to assure you have a fun and safe trip. You don't have to have any diving or snorkeling experience to have a wonderful outing with Fiyaaz. They are all so friendly that you'll feel like part of the family by the end of your day.

My husband and I moved to the Maldives about 8 months ago. Initially, I thought I would just snorkel, but my husband convinced me that I should give scuba diving a try. Fiyaaz let me take my time to get comfortable with all the equipment, gave me excellent instruction and really made me feel comfortable. And for a much lower price than you'll pay elsewhere...you don't always get what you pay for...sometimes you get much much more. Now we go diving with Fiyaaz and his crew every chance we get.

He offers boat trips on his own boat whenever you like to go, or excellent snorkeling and diving can be done just from our own little beach and house reef here in Vilingili. I really can't say enough good things about Diver's Lodge. They aren't fancy, just the best.

Let me admit am extremely extremely late in putting up this review!!! Am not a certified diver however had done a couple of dives before in Bali a year back !!! So we are as good as fresh and did not remember the basics!!! I went to fayyaz's centre along with my wife as a complete novice and to our bad luck it was a rainy day and the sea was rough!!! We opted for a house reef dive.....Fayyaz was instrumental in reinstating confidence in both of us...in an extremely technical and text book style he took us through all the basics ....trained us for 30 mins in the centre and equal amount of time in the shallow part of the sea .....while villingilli offers great conditions for diving I was a bit perturbed in the sea due to the conditions !!! However the techniques helped me gather courage and I went for another 2 dives and could dive as deep as the certified divers in the group!!! Fayyaz was kind enough to click few pics and videos ....it still brings on a smile on my wife's face whenever she flips through !!!!

I recommend his dive centre to all novice and people who want to get done with their certifications!!! Given his technical approach!!!

Thanks Fayyaz!!
