The rooms were big and there was a nice garden you could relax in. But the best part was the staff. They were so friendly and helpfull, and they made our stay fantastic. So I can definitely recommend Rasdhoo dive lodge.
This guys are the best!! I did scuba diving twice with them and also stayed in his lodge. They made my scuba diving the best experience ever, making me laugh even under the water 😂, I definitely would recommend this center and lodge, 100%. They hay in the lodge also are super attentive and caring !
Did a dive certification and stayed at the lodge for 3 days. The staff are really friendly and the place was really clean. Walking distance from the bikini beach as well. Imran, the manager was very responsive (both on emails and also when we were there). Arif, the chef usually alternated between Maldivian, Indian and Chinese cuisine. There are multiple other restaurants at Rasdhoo including Lemon Drop, Coffee Ole which also serve good food. The Dive centre is the oldest at Rasdhoo and we trained under Rotz and Hysal. The Dive at Madivaru Beyru was the best and we saw sharks, angel rays, moray eels. Definitely a recommended place for value for money accommodation. Suggestion: Bath soap, shower gel could also be stocked at the rooms.
I am slightly baffled by the very many excellent reviews that this guest house gets, and after speaking to other guests, I am certainly not alone in this. Let me begin by saying that the staff of the lodge are generally very nice, as are the staff of the restaurant. Also, the accommodation was very reasonably priced. However, the reviews created expectations which were not quite met. My room was ok, but as the only window faced the pathway to the restaurant, I had to keep the curtains drawn, which made it dark and uninviting. It also seemed as if the room was not often aired, as there was a strong smell of moth balls and mildew. The fridge also had an unpleasant odor, as did the drain in the shower. Some maintenance issues cropped up during the first day - at first there was no water in the bathroom, and then the water did not heat up. However, both issues were fixed immediately. The room was clean, but the seating area outside was not maintained. A dirty ashtray which I noticed the first day was still there when I left two days later. Although I did not visit Rasdhoo specifically for diving, I did two dives with the dive centre. It was well organised and especially the night dive was a great experience. I did however feel that the dive staff were not very friendly initially and that communication could have been better. Rasdhoo is a good island to visit if you are planning to dive, but in my opinion it is not the prettiest local island in this region. It is very built up, the bikini beach is tiny and unfortunately there is a bit of an issue with garbage all over the island. However, the locals on Rasdhoo are some of the friendliest that I have encountered anywhere in the Maldives.…
Me and my boyfriend loved to stay at divers lodge! It was clean, nice and the staff was really helpful and good. They arranged a lot of activities for us, diving, snorkling, jet ski, night fishing and visit to the beautiful sandbank. The staff helped us with everything and were chatty and friendly. The food at the restaurant was really nice as well. The cook especially. This was a great visit and we will deffinetly come back :)
