Stayed here for 9 nights, beach is beautiful and private, during our stay we often had the beach to ourselves, we were provided with a Beach bbq during our stay as we opted for full board (this is highly recommended as the food is very very good) we also took part in excursions provided by Immi, these were excellent value, ask Immi for his various excursion packages as there is a variety of options. We did the night fishing and caught plenty including barracudas and red snapper, we actually ate our catch the following day which was cooked for us by the chef Mohammed (also his home made puddings are to die for) We also did a snorkeling trip to a ship wreck again very very good, we swam with turtles on another trip, visited a stunning sandbar, used the canoe to go around the gorgeous crystal clear blue sea by the beach. During our stay here there was another couple who had a stunning wedding ceremony on the beach too, beautiful to witness especially at sundown. We really wanted a chilled time and that’s exactly what we got staying here, very comfortable room with tv which was welcomed as nothing to do in the evening. Wifi wasn’t strong but it worked with a little patience, it’s the same on the whole island. The island is very small, it’s nice to see the locals getting on with their everyday life, it’s unspoiled. I would definitely recommend staying here and ask any questions to Immi as he’s very helpful. We hope to return one day.

Prompt and perfect communication. Small cosy hotel perfect for a quiet family holiday. Fragrant bedding and towels, clean rooms, very tasty meals and very friendly staff. Great snorkeling and boat trips. This all together made our holiday unforgetable.

Short version: If you want a fantastic time, stay at the Mirian Sky Hotel Long version: Mirian Sky Hotel is on Gaafaru, which is a small local island with a population of roughly 2.500. The hotel is situated a couple of minutes away from Bikini Beach (a very nice clean beach where you can already do some nice snorkling) and the harbor. Although the location is great, it's only a small part of what makes staying at Mirian Sky Hotel so great. The biggest part what makes the stay so fantastic is the staff. They really make you feel at home and are very friendly. For example, the chef always asks if you have special wishes and will cook accordingly, although I would like to recommend to let him 'suprise' you with his cooking skills. Breakfast, lunch (hot meal) and dinner (hot meal) were always a true feast. So hats of for the chef! If you want to do some activities like snorkling or diving, the hotel can accomadate that too. You can always discuss your wishes with the captain of the excursion boat. He is super friendly and knows the best spots to snorkle or dive. During the trips he and the first mate will take really good care of you. Some things I have seen during snorkling thanks to the captain: Turtles, stingrays, small sharks and Dolphins! All in all the staff will make you feel really at home while you are enjoying the fantastic weather of the Maldives. The local islanders are also very friendly and you can enjoy some nice coffee in one of the 3 coffeehouses (there is one with a great view) in the evenings. There is also a soccer field where the local Island Competition matches are held. So even though it’s a small Island, you will never get bored. There really is no reason not to go and stay at Mirian Sky Hotel 😊 To end this review I really want to thank the hotel owner Immi for making my fantastic stay possible. He was very friendly and helpful and really tries to make your stay really special. Which it was.

My name is Suma Saeed and this January I went to Mirian Sky to spend my holiday with a group of friends and family to relax before school started. I'm very happy to say that I got a better experience than I had expected. The staff made us feel like we were at home. They were very welcoming and friendly which was why I loved my stay there so much. If we had a problem they would attend to it right away and made sure we were satisfied. Unlike most guesthouses I've been to, Mirian Sky served traditional food which I think is one of the things that makes it stand out since they want their guests to have a local experience along with a comfortable and relaxing one. The beach was one of the most beautiful beaches I've been to. You can go snorkeling, swimming, diving and do all kinds of different water sports which is completely worth it because the marine life there is extraordinary. Everything at Mirian Sky from the food to the beach was wonderful. I really loved my whole stay there and I can't wait to go back.

I stayed at Mirian Sky the first week of the 2018 year. What a way to start the year ! Everything was perfect. Immi, the hotel owner, and all his staff are truly dedicated to our happiness and doing their best to make our stay as nice as possible. Immi was there almost all the time ! In his team, the cooker is really really amazing, the food is excellent at every meal: grilled fish, vegetables, we were able to try so many Maldivian specialities and I loved them all. I also do not eat meat and they kindly ajustés our meals accordingly. The boat captain is also really nice, you will meet him if you book activities like Turtle snorkelling (amazing we saw a lot of turtles and sharks because he really dives with us and show us) or Picnic island (a dreamlike private island where you go spend the day like princesses and where they will grill fish and cook for you on the beach). Gaafaru is a really cute island very safe and quiet where you get to see Maldivian culture. Only 2 guesthouses on the island so it is really authentical. You have nice cafes with rooftop for sunset :) there is a bikini beach which is beautiful where you can book activités like jetski, banana boat, drift boat, windsurf... and if you like scubardiving Immi will take you to the closets resort where they offer plenty. I did it and saw many sharks and eagle rays. The hotel is clean and nice. Perfect stay, thanks a lot Immi and his team for this wonderful week :)

Our dearest friend Immi (Imran), We came to Maldives with no expectations but full of anticipation. From the first steps to the last, you affected our vacatio...n and made it to the most wonderful and unforgettable time. Your kindness, helpfulness, surprises and organization was way more than one could expect from a host. During our stay in your lovely guesthouse on Gaafaru, Mirian Sky became a “home” for us. Cheerful Mohammed always greeted us with a wide smile on his face, giving us the feeling that taking best care of us was his pleasure every time of the day. No matter which food, which time, which extra wishes or half portions – nothing was too complicated or too much effort for Mohammed. An when we thought it could not get any better, you surprise all guests with a lovely idea at the beach. Beside the great hospitality, your guesthouse is as clean as one could eat from the floor. It has all the fancy technique and the mattress almost invited us to stay in bed for the whole day. We had our own little picture-perfect “private” beach (3 min walk from the guesthouse) with the expected turquoise water, bright white sand (watch out for the hundreds of crabs at nighttime ;)). There is absolute no need to worry about any dress code as long as one respect basics and does not walk around town in a bikini or see-through clothes. However, the “private” (bikini) beach allows for sunbathing in bikini. We thank you so much for taking us for canoeing, turtle-snorkeling, evening-fishing (with delicious red snapper for dinner :)), anchorpoint-snorkeling, dolphin cruising, sandbank visit, picnic island visit, resort visit – we have done it all! ;) Your staff was friendly and helpful taking good care of us in all and every matter. If someone will ask us what to do and where to go on Maldives, you can be sure that we will not hesitate a second to recommend Mirian Sky without any limitations. You made our vacation! You rock! Not even all “thank you”s in this world would be enough to make up for what you have done for us! Love ya and see u soon! :D Sylvia & Vio (Germany)

We were 3 couples on a graduation/relaxation trip for a week on Gaafaru. Gaafaru is an island preserved from global commercialism and you can experience the genuine Maldivian culture and atmosphere. The streets, no asphalt just sandy streets, reminded me a lot of India or Bangladesh. Mirian Sky is located in the midst of all this. The hotel is kept very fresh both in exterior and interior. Rooms were very tidy and had a good amount of space. Nice general area with sofas and chairs for us to hang out. Our deepest thanks go to chef Mohammad who amazed us with every single dish he served us. Simply astounding cuisine! Also a giant thanks to Jorey who took us on the most amazing adventures on the speedboat. On Gaafaru there isn't much to do (expansion of the island has led to the closing of the public bikini beach) but the crew of Mirian Sky always made sure we had something to do. We paid 1000 USD for one week's stay with the following activities included: Picnic island visits with BBQ: went 3 times, amazing island, great waters, great reefs and fresh facilities e.g toiletry. Turtle watching + Resort visit: visit to Eriyadoo Resort with lunch and a soft drink included. Super stay on the resort. Very relaxing!! Turtle watching was great success! Jorey took us to a reef close to the resort where turtles were common and we saw over 10 of them! Banana Ride: low expectations for this one but we managed to bump into a gang of dolphins which made this ride unforgettable. Sand bank trip: the least favourite trip we made. Amazing view and probably a good set up for the lone couple who want to share a few hours ALL BY THEMSELVES. Fishing trip: going on a local fishing boat with Jorey and a few locals. Great experience and genuine as well! Mirian Sky has given us an amazing experience of Maldives and the personel are very service minded, friendly and good english speakers. We will never forget this stay here and we wonder how we will manage the rest of our trip without Mohammad's food!!! I strongly recommend anyone reading this to go to Gaafaru and stay at Mirian Sky, hopefully your experience will be as unforgettable as ours! Asif Khan

We are three couples that visited. We really bonded with the staff. They put all their hearts into our time and made sure everything was fun. The food was marvelous, absolutely the best. Not a single day was the food bad. We managed to do all the things that they promise is included and some more! The rooms were very good, we really had an amazing time! Loved it!

Is not only that is years cheaper than a resort, is even much better. Imran and their staff are extremately helpful and kind, we had awsome holidays spending time with them and we miss them all! We went snorkle, to a sandbank, fishing, to a private island, we had a bbq in an island only for us... All in a extremately beatiful and impressive environment such Maldivas are and for a price you for sure could afford. Felt in love with Mohamed, our lovely cooker, and with Joarey, our funny and handsome boatman. Hope see them again in the future!!
