I have booked the hotel for myself and four of my friends and had to ask for many changes as one of my friend was not able to come. Further We requested to change the floors to get better sea view (3,4 floors have the view blocked by coconut trees crowns) and all these changes were accommodated without any hassle. Further they got nice excursions/activities with collaboration with other parties which were all well organized. We did not experience single issue with the hotel as everybody was so nice and friendly. Their airport transfers are also very punctual.

If you need liquor you have to visit offshore cruise "Kaani Princess" and you cant have any bar in the island. And you have a Bikini Beach to relax and sunbathing with minimal wear. Good thing is that the hotel is just in front of the Bikini Beach. It has shallow water and beautiful sand beach.

They don't have buffet for lunch. You can get average level dinner and breakfast and the food available is well cooked and delicious. Further, you can get unlimited water bottles and towels, sea beds whenever necessary. Rooms are so clean, spacy and well maintained. Wifi connection is so reliable as well.

All in all, Kaani Grand is one of the best stay I had in abroad outside Sri Lanka.

Room Tip: Avoid 3,4 floors. 2 and 6 are the best.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Maldives, stay in Maafushi and book at Kaani Grand Seaview Hotel. You will never go wrong choosing this hotel. The location, the food, the rooms, the price.. Simply PERFECT. We stayed here , we are all critics and couldnt find any fault. We're sure to be back again and again and again.....

Room Tip: 98% of room have balcony and seaview

I stayed there with few of my friends. We reserved sea view rooms and got cozy and clean rooms with a good view on 5th floor. (Tip: There is another hotel coming up next door, so specifically ask for the sea view).

We were there on Half board basis and missed the dinner buffet on the day of arrival. They were kind enough to offer us a Lunch for the missed dinner on a day we wish. Food is good but you may feel the options are be limited if you are staying more than three days. All staff were friendly and did everything to make our stay a pleasant one. Hotel offered us a three point snorkeling trip with a lunch on a sand bank and a Night fishing trip. Also the staff helped us to get a good offer for para sailing and few other water sports.

Following the rules of the country they do not serve alcohol on the island, but there is a cruise ship "Kaani Princess" maintained as a restaurant and a Bar. Since this is not on a private island, Bikinis are not entertained everywhere, but the beach just in front of the hotel is maintained as a bikini beach.

Room Tip: There is another hotel coming up next door, so specifically ask for the sea view as the construction will block the sea view for some rooms.

We only dined there as we stayed at their sister hotel Kaani Village. Kaani Grand Seaview is a beautiful Hotel facing the soothing seafront and bikini beach. The restaurant is large and open plan. We dined there in one evening under dimmed lighting and amazing atmosphere. A meal for a family of 4 was only $40.00
