I am so happy and glad that I decided to stay at Sealavie Inn. Even in these difficult times Fazeel the owner is taking care of everything better than expected. The rooms are fantastic and super clean, the garden area looks like a tropical chill out place with swings and palms and ... just beautiful. Also the staff is very friendly and smiley and fulfills every guests wish. You can walk with a few steps to the beach which is stunning and snorkeling is superb. Also there are restaurants and shops nearby. I also had a look at some other places and I am sure for me it has been the right decision to stay here. Also Fazeel offers nice trips as Manta spotting or picnic tours. If I... No! I will come back and there is only one place for me to stay: SeaLaVie!!!

Second visit to this beautiful island and hotel. We were here in March during the corona time. We had difficulties to get to the island but the hotel owner, Fazeel, saved our holiday. We stayed here until our flight back to Finland. We have not been in all of the hotels in Ukulhas, but we are convinced that this is absolutely the best one. Very beautiful hotel, yard and rooms. You can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the best restaurant on the island, Sealavie Cafe (we really recommend the halfboard). Ten steps from the hotel and you are on the beach. There were also many watersport equipments at the hotel to borrow. Miss you already, hope one day we can come back again. Thank you Sealavie, staff at the restaurant, Fazeel and The Boy!

A friend and I just spent 11 nights at SeaLaVie Inn. After a few days there we felt it was our second home. The owner, Fazeel, is such a service minded and warm person. He and his staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. The whole place has this vibe of laid back, charming, superfriendly and authentic. Our room was just behind the cafe'/restaurant. It was completely quiet, clean and really nice. There's a small refrigerator, a waterboiler, air conditioner and a safe. The safe however we constantly forgot wide open which was not a problem whatsoever. The whole Inn, the whole island in fact, feels very safe and so enormously friendly. There's a beautiful garden just outside the room with different hammocks where the guests can chill. Bring the mosquito repellent though. We truly recommend this gem of an Inn!

SeaLaVie Inn is a very friendly place to stay at in this very friendly island, which is not yet touristy. If you like to have the beach almost to yourself SeaLaVie is on the right part of the island (which is very small so you can easily walk to the other side for the sunset, it is about 220 meters only..). SeaLaVie Inn is at the end of the village and right by the quiet beach. Snorkling is good. The house reef is full of reef fish, you can even spot the odd turtle now and then and if you swim closer to the port you may also spot reef sharks. SeaLaVie Inn is not a five star residence but you will enjoy a beautiful garden and clean and modern rooms with everything you need (including fresh beach towels and even a beach bag) and the food in the SeaLaVie Inn is the best on Ukulhas and the breakfast is great. If I come back to this part of the Maldives I would definitively stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at SeaLaVie for a few days and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The daily breakfast and thai food on offer is some of the best on the island. Breakfast consisting of freshly baked bread, cereals, fresh fruit and coffee. The accommodation is within walking distance of both tourist beaches which are both impressive. The accommodation itself was simple, very spacious and clean. Kettle and tea making facilities, beach bag with towels and mini fridge all nice touches. Quite a few mosquitos around the garden so come prepared with mozzie spray. Considering the accommodation options and price, I believe SeaLaVie represents excellent value for money and most definitely rivals any other guesthouse on the island.
