I stayed at the Banyan Villa with my husband just a couple of weeks ago, while diving with the South Ari Dive Center. The villa is arranged in the local style, pleasantly overlooking a quiet internal courtyard filled with plants and flowers, with seating areas equipped with books and table games (a nice touch!). It is a very peaceful place where to stay: the rooms are spacious enough and recently made/renovated, and are spotless, with both AC and a fan. The breakfast is served on the beach near the Mala Inn, but it is only a 3 minutes walk through the lovely colourful village streets, which was very enjoyable. The staff was extremely kind and helpful, and went far and beyond to make our stay really pleasant. P.s. The villa takes its name from the majestic, ancient banyan tree that is just in front, and it is the symbol and the protector of the island: it is so big that it can be seen from the sea kilometres away.. so beautiful!!

we stayed here in Jan 2019 and it was amazing. a real little gem. we arrived in Male (dont stay there any longer than you have to) and got the boat straight to Dhangethi. we had a nightmare boat trip but the staff of the hotel were ready to meet us from the port and take us to the accom. Its very small but perfect for what we wanted for a few nights. breakfast and dinner were both buffet style set on tables on the beach, they put up a gazebo and bbqs each night to cook for us. it was brilliant. there were fairy lights in the trees and the sea was metres away from us. the staff, particularly Adu, couldnt have done more to help us and make us feel comfortable. they organised trips for us like the whale shark trip (which i really recommend) then showed us footage the guide had filmed of us swimming with them. they were brilliant the whole time. The island itself is so small you can walk around it in a few hours so everywhere was close and accessible and I never felt uncomfortable wearing western clothes there. really enjoyed it, highly recommend staying here

Quiet location next to the main street. A few steps to the shops. The place is in the middle of the island so every place has a short walk. Next to the Bayan tree, which is over 600 years old, it is great! Good service and staff. Good and clean room, air conditioning was effective and the room has a fan too. Coffee making facilities and a fridge and TV, all you need. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice cleaner and good cleaning. Breakfast place is on the beach and beautiful but breakfast was a bit boring ( not much variation) and no Maldives breakfast was available. Otherwise everything was fine! The fishing trip was great!

This place had everything we needed. We stayed here while diving with South Ari Dive Center. The rooms were spacious with lots of places to hang clothes and store items. The AC worked well. the bathroom was clean and modern. The little courtyard was lovely with plants and trees and seating areas. They let us borrow some snorkel gear on site. We slept well, it was nice and quiet on the street outside but did hear the call to prayer each morning around 4am - but that's part of the local experience! The staff was kind and welcoming. Would recommend!

Clean room, comfortable bed, air conditioning and ceiling fan, quiet place : a very good value for money plan. Meals are proposed on a dedicated place on the beach with wonderful view. Simple but tasty buffet choice. I recommend this place.
