Mustaffa is the owner of Beach Heaven and together with his young son Janaan, they do a marvellous job in making sure that you have all your needs taken care of. I visited in last week of November and wanted to go fishing and snorkeling with my parents. Mustaffa and Janaan would come along themselves along with their staff- Samarey and Adroof. They would catch loads of fishes and help us catch some as well. You are welcomed to the place with coconut water and thereupon you can directly approach Mustaffa or Janaan for any need. I recommend the all inclusive package which includes the food. The chefs and servers in the kitchen do a great job in cooking different yummy meals. The fishes caught on your fishing trips are served for dinner. The rooms are clean, neat and tidy and you can request them to be cleaned any time. Beach Heaven is located right on the beach and you can walk over and snorkel any time. Additional snorkelling excursions can be organized by Mustaffa/Janaan for a very nominal price. Mustaffa will join you and show you turtles, sharks and starfishes on such snorkelling trips. Fishing trips are very reasonably priced at $15 per person and you can go on multiple trips per day. Mustaffa is all ears and very generous in giving his time and effort to you and you will remember the hospitality for ever. Since I am vegetarian and would not actually catch fish while my parents would, Mustaffa did not charge me for accompanying them on the boat. . This is highly appreciated and I commend Mustaffa for his understanding and generosity. Upon multiple excursions, he gave me a discount as well, this shows he isnt all about the money but also wants you to enjoy Maldives hospitality without breaking your bank. Various other excursions that are on the menu are Sand Bank picnic, turtle tour, Scuba diving with sting rays, etc. Janaan is also very attentive and hospitable and he got my mom some medicines from the local hospital since she was falling sick. Overall, I highly recommend Beach Heaven Maldives - it is a great way to get a feel for local hospitality at a price much more affordable than the resorts.…
Accomodation was excellent. Staff were accommodating and always attentive to any questions or query’s we had...which we didn’t. Couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Rooms clean and refreshing. Beach located a short walk to clear water. Highly recommend visiting this island and choosing the beach heaven to stay at.
first of all the location! Just heaven locality at huraa on the first line of the beach I came to surf and there is 4 faomus point really close Every morning they took me to other famous point and in the evening to! The food is great and the crew is so nice you felling like home The rooms are clean and big There is ac and hot water
Our trip to the Maldives in June was unbelievable! We stayed at Beach Heaven for 10 days and couldn’t have asked for more. Mustafa was fantastic and his team are wonderful. Highly recommend the snorkelling with sharks and sea turtles! Thank you again, Mustafa, we will be back.
We have tried a few places in the Maldives and Beach Heaven offers the best value for sure. Big Plus is the great local food with fresh fish curries and salads. Great wifi and air conditioning. Friendly helpful staff with some great tours on offer for extra fees. The only down side is why they charge $100 pp to get to and from the airport when it only cost us $15 pp each way when we stayed with Sea Shine!?! The land reclamation has reduced the quality of Bikini Beach but it's still pretty good. Prices over to Club Med Kani have gone up unfortunately. We'd love to go again but the overpriced trip from the airport may make us look elsewhere.
Very cosy accomodation, clean and quiet. The personel is very kind. Food and drinks in the form of bufet were fresh and tasty. Ideal location for trips on deserted island, resorts and snorkeling or diving.
We got all kind of activities, snorkeling, diving, fishing, surfing!!! Lots of fun with a very friendly staff at incredibly low price compared to the nearby luxury resorts. Rooms are basic with A/C and bathroom inside. Beauty is outside: we enjoyed the amazing Maldivian Ocean that once was reserved to rich tourists only :) December is top high season, but the price was only 60 US$ per person, all-inclusive (breakfast, lunch and dinner, water coffe tea included). There is a reclamation project going on and part od the project is also a new bikini beach. So the guest house offered us free trips to a small island nearby, where we stayed in bikini. The guys told us that the new bikini beach will be ready soon. After a short trip to Sri Lanka we went back to the Beach Heaven guest house and with our surprise... we discovered that the new bikini beach was ready!!! Now the new bikini beach is near the north corner of the Huraa island, just in front of the Club Med Kani resort. We wanted to go swimming to see the resort, but our friends told us that it's absolutely prohibited, only way is to buy a daily pass. The water quality in Huraa is also better because the discharge of sewage is now outside the reef barrier, towards the ocean and no more inside the lagoon :) Thank you Massimo, Natasha, Fazan, Thol, Hussain & all the Beach Heaven guys!!!…
Here's an updated review after our cost per night was adjusted 100-120USD/night not including taxes and Airbnb fees, which would significantly bring the price up by another 20USD or so. We were originally charged 180USD/night not including taxes and Airbnb fees which was supposed to include some activities but there was a miscommunication and the activities didn't happen. Still, we find the price per night quite exorbitant. Here's an updated review after our cost per night was adjusted 100-120USD/night not including taxes and Airbnb fees. Some simple facts and tips: - The room's are very functional but we didn't find it very clean. The sheets made me itch a little and we were provided a pink child's fleece blanket which we tried to share. We think it would be best for budget travelers, families used to roughing it out or divers looking to dive on a budget in Maldives. - The shower does not get warm. There were two shower heads, hot and cold and you have to mix the water. - Booking on Airbnb is the most expensive. We found the prices closer to the dates we were going to travel were much cheaper. We met couples who booked Beach Heaven at 70USD-90USD. We feel that is truer value for money for what you get. - Instead of hiring the roundtrip speedboat provided by Beach Heaven which costs USD100 (by far the cheapest speedboat rides we saw offered by hotels in the Maldives), you can consider the ferry from the airport to Huraa Island for 10USD per trip. It is just as fast but the only problem is it operates three times a day. Please google to check. - We interacted mostly with Natasha and Tholhath. We will just say our interactions and experience didn't seem to match what we read in most of the reviews. - Our room was by the road. It was hard to fall asleep the first night because of what we thought was a moth by our door and just people walking by. - The food was very very simple. We found that there was a lot of ketchup used the two days we were there. Here is a sample of our menu: Breakfast - hotdogs, eggs, tuna flakes, roth, orange slices; Lunch - fish, rice, curry chicken, tomato salad; Dinner - deep fried fish, fish in broth, rice, Maldivian veggies (basically fried leaves that look like basil), side salad. - Huraa Island is in the process of becoming more touristy. We found two other restaurants which served Western food, and even hot pot. Not much Maldivian cuisine to speak of though. - We found the Turtle and Shark watching activity totally unsuitable for weak swimmers. We informed Natsha and Tholhath that i was and were told it'll be fine. It was not, as we were basically told to snorkel in the middle of a fairly choppy ocean. We asked for 30USD refund for one, as only my husband did the activity. They did provide the refund but were not apologetic about this and simply said something along the lines of, "It was your choice." We feel this response reflects the safety standards of the property accurately, which is low. - They provide laundry service for free but do not seem to use detergent. Bad for the environment, yes. We agree. But, maybe we could have been informed. We were also handed damp clothes. As mentioned, do not expect "resort-like service." - The bikini beach is under construction. There are piles of sands everywhere for now. We were offered a free boat ride to the sandbank where you can stay from 10am-1pm. We found the snorkelling safe but average there. Depending on who's driving the boat, you might have to bring a waterproof bag as we saw that it is sometimes required for people to jump off for a short swim to shore. We saw someone who couldn't swim in a life vest make it to shore. It was entertaining but something families with children would want to take into consideration. In short, we recommend only for budget travellers or divers on a budget. We do not recommend for couples looking for a relaxing holiday or families or people who want to enjoy the Maldives the "normal" way. Just two people's opinion. There are much better options out there. We did not stay our last night, which we did not have to pay for after going to the Airbnb Resolution Centre. We moved to another resort and had a great time before our holiday had to come to an end.…
Had an amazing time in Beach heaven. Rooms were basic but the cleanest budget rooms I’ve been to so far. The food was finger licking good and I cannot wait to go for more. It was truly a bliss seeing the turtles, sharks and mantas. Heartiest thanks to beach heaven team for the kind hospitality they gave us. Totally recommending this place if you want to exprerience the Maldives on a budget. I guarantee you, these guys will not disappoint you. Everything was upto and beyond our expectations. Will soon go back for more fun.
Just 20-30 minutes away from Male’ city by speedboat, a wonderful place to stay. Very welcoming and professional team. The level of service was truly excellent. Would definitely stay again. Highly recommend for others.
