We were a bunch of friends visiting Dharavandoo, to catch the Manta Ray action in Hanifaroo Bay. 7 of us ended up staying here, either on twin sharing basis or single occupancy. Clean rooms, hot water available 24/7. The best part was the breakfast. The manager Shakir( hope I got the name and spelling right), made this simple morning meal an absolute treat! Fruits, eggs, toast and some Maldivian delicacies! How much ever you wanted to eat, it kept coming, no questions asked! A big thank you for that! Very economical, considering what the others charge around there. It’s right next to the airport, so you can pretty much get off the airplane and walk to Summer Shades! And Dharavandoo being a small island, getting anywhere is just a five minute walk. Would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Dharavandoo.

My stay in Summer shades was a perfect stay away from home. Our friendly caretaker Shakeer gave us wholesome break fast before we left for the boat everyday. The rooms are clean and spacious .There is a small backyard to rinse your salt water clothes and to dry them. The cozy veranda in the front was a witness to many saltwater stories and lots of laughter. Our stay was pleasant with unlimited cups of tea and water. The local scrumptious dinner was a perfect ending to our adventure trip. Thanks Shakeer for everything.

YES!!! If it was possible to give more than five stars, I would in a heartbeat. I would definitely stay with Farysh at the Summer Shade Maldives again (and will when we come back!) and I recommend this place to everyone. Farysh is the best and most attentive host we have ever stayed with. From answering all my questions before I had even booked the stay with him to booking excursions and inter-island flights for us, he’s THE BEST! Farysh knew I wanted to swim with manta rays more than anything when we were here and he was in constant contact with the ocean rangers for when the mantas were in the bay. He even adjusted our flights and let us stay an extra night so we could swim with them! He helped us book affordable scuba diving trips and an excursion to snorkel and visit a sandbank for sunset on a day-to-day basis based on what we felt like doing each day. We were also here for my husband’s birthday and Farysh went above and beyond and personally got him a cake to celebrate! Farysh’s place the Summer Shade is a fantastic little local bed and breakfast. It’s conveniently located within a five minutes walk of the airport, beach, shops, and several restaurants. His place is clean, comfortable, quiet, and has good AC. He has an option for breakfast (you should definitely take it cuz it’s delicious!). He also provides power adaptors/converters, snorkel gear and beach towels for guests to use. Even better, he has numerous contacts and can get you a great price for any excursion you want to do. The best part is that he can get you more affordable inter-island flights and island transfers by boat than anyone else! His thoughtful care for his guests and his attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure our happiness is incredible. He has definitely won our loyalty for life!
