I can't have picked a better place for my parents to spend 2 weeks in Maldives. Working with West Sands - right from Booking all the way to Check-Out was the best experience. The team and staff (Hardy, Najab) were highly communicative, even through Whatsapp, and gave me all the required updates when I was unable to reach my parents. They co-ordinated return transfer from the airport, ensured my parents got a boat to the island even thought their flight coming in to Male was delayed and they'd missed the departure time for the first boat, arranged for their Covid tests to be completed per all requirements, and accommodated all their requests with respect to food. Food was very healthy and had a ton of variety, and their rooms have the best view and beach access.The staff even went out of their way to get my father's phone repaired when it stopped functioning, and helped them feel comfortable just as family would. TIP: Please book directly with them through their website to get the best deal, and also support local Maldives economy rather than go through Agents based in your country.

We came here with our 3 year old daughter while the island was experiencing curfew restrictions. What a great decision we made! We couldn't been here at any better time. At first when the management of the hotel inform us about situation we were a little sceptical but we decided to visit them anyway. We stayed at West Sands for 24 nights. Island is very peaceful, but we can still enjoy everything they can offer. Curfew is implied from 9PM to 4AM so this for us didn't make a difference really. However even with curfew you can see people walking outside after 9PM. Shops after 9PM still let you buy stuff, only you have to stay outside and tell to the shop keeper what you need and they get it for you. Everyone is always very friendly and helpful. Restaurants offer only take out and delivery at the moment (this shall change soon as we were told). We tried few restaurants around but at the end we came to decision to eat only in our hotel as the food they freshly prepared for us every day was just outstanding. We really enjoyed all the delicious meals Haadi prepared for us. As well we need to mention that our little girl was always very well taken care of. The staff always found a minute or two (or half an hour :P ) to talk to her, play and show her around. Place is very clean as well, our room was cleaned twice a day. Towels always waited for us on the beach...on our favourite spot :) We definitely enjoyed our stay here with no complaints what so ever. We recommend this place with all our hearts! And for all of you who are scared and think you will be missing out on something because of curfew restrictions believe me this is definitely not the case. For us personally this is the best time to visit as it's very peaceful, not many tourists and you can really see this local island in all of its glory.

My wife and I stayed 6 nights at west Sands in April and would highly recommend the hotel while staying at Ukulhas. The hotel is clean, the staff is excellent, and the location is meters from the beach. The restaurant has a good selection of food every night. They are also partnered with an excellent dive shop on the island.
