Chose Maldives for our honeymoon+1st anniversary trip. Stayed at Arena for 5 days and 4 nights. 4 days n 3 nights package is inclusive of sunset fishing, day trip at Adaaran Rannalhi, candlelight dinner, snorkeling n dolphin watching. We add-on 1 extra night to scuba dive for 1 day with Arena. Everyone in Maldives was very friendly and at Arena, the staff named Lorenzo was like the best friend u want to be with, at least on the island. Sunsets were very beautiful n it’s different every evening. And the view from everywhere is breathtaking. We booked the seaview room and it was spacious. Bed decoration for us the honeymooners was nice. It was with swan towels, flower petals, n a cake. Just one thing tho. During snorkeling, they only took us to 2 points, Biyadhoo Reef n Turtle Reef, then watch dolphin at Dolphin Lagoon. I think they should go to Banana Reef as the third snorkeling point before going to watch dolphin but they didn’t. Or maybe I misunderstood about the 3 snorkeling points. Not sure. We had photos n videos snorkeling with turtles taken by the Arena snorkeling staffs. Came back to the hotel after snorkeling n swim in Arena’s infinity pool. As for candle light dinner, when we were checking in the first day, the staff explained to us about the activities throughout our stay there including confirming which night we’d like to have our candle light dinner. N we confirmed we want our candle light dinner on the night that we go for day trip to Adaraan, which is our 3rd night at the hotel. But they mistakenly prepared the romantic dinner on our first night there n coz it was already prepared, they asked us to go for the romantic dinner AND on the 3rd night as we wanted. Meaning we had 2 romantic dinners. Yeay. There’s so much more that we want to tell but these are the highlights needed to be out there. We had a wonderful stay n amazing memories on that paradise island. Thank u!

Stayed for 4D5N. A hotel relation staff waited for us as we arrived at the dock. Helped us with our luggage and we walked to the hotel. We had a welcome drink and was escorted to our room. Our room and bathroom was HUGE! It wasn’t crampy for 3 ladies to share at all! There were towels, toiletries, bottled water, room service (daily). The room also included a balcony and a rack to hang all the wet clothes. A refrigerator, air condition and i think a TV (we didn’t have any time to watch tv, even if there was one), a full length mirror, toilet hose. We had breakfast included and the food was good! You can also rent a bicycle and cycle around the island. Beach towels are also provided by the hotel for u to take a dip or suntan by the beach! Also, we booked a resort tour on our last day with the hotel and it was well worth it. Airport transfer from the resort itself! Loved this place! FYI its the best hotel in Maafushi too according to the people there.. I highly recommend this hotel.. Grateful for Roy who was very friendly and welcoming! Thank you! You can check out some of my videos on youtube!

Room Tip: Sea view is always the best. Higher floor if you really want an unobstructed view of the beach.....

Room was very nice cheap and best. So for budget honeymoon one can choose arena accomodation. Restaurant was very nice. It would be more good if the hotel adds South Indian foods with some spicy and crispy
