“Good for a night's rest”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We chose to stay at this property as our flight arrived late at night from Malaysia, before going to one of the resorts the next day. Of course, we had done the online bookings earlier. We booked the deluxe room. Everything was easy.....the rep gathered us at the airport (albeit had to wait for about 30mins for some guests arriving on Singapore Airlines too), put us on a mini bus, and distributed us to the respective hotels within a 15-20min distance from the airport.
We never expected any luxury, and we didn't get it either. But, all in all, the service was good, the receptionist was friendly and helpful. Our room, though small, was comfy - and yes, an added bonus, it fronts the beach. Breakfast was edible....but nothing to shout about.
We know what we paid for was a good night's sleep prior to starting our holiday proper, and that's what we got. So, we have nothing to complain about.

Nothing special, but basic, affordable accommodations for a stopover. There are better and cheaper options available on Hulhumale, but this one will do if they are booked up. Get a room in FRONT with an ocean view, the rooms on the backside overlook a construction site (dump) and are ridiculously small. Bathrooms are really small and full of mildew. Adequate breakfast included on rooftop terrace with ocean view.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view - the rooms on the backside are not adequate.

We stayed In Fuana IInn for one night waiting for connecting flight. We think that hotel is just perfect for a short stay: small but clean rooms, a/c, TV, small balcony with a nice sea view, decent meal and above all - fantastic staff! All of them were extremely helpful from the moment we were met at the airport to the moment we entered our taxi to go. If Maldives only had different laws regarding swimming costumes, we'd be glad to stay there for a week, considering beautiful beach; but the idea of swimming in a long dress doesn't seem very appealing :-))). Nevertheless, would recommend and would come back.

It is Tim From Palace Sichuan Restaurant. Earlier today I suppose to went to one hotel located in Hulumale' & receive food items importing from China. However, I made a mistake & arrived in Fuana Inn. But front desk there assist me to solve this issue & later I found out the right hotel.

The reason that why I highly recommend Fuana Inn: Even I am not a guest from this restaurant, they still treat me as their guest. It is not hard to imagine that if I were a guest in this hotel, I convince that I will receive high class service.

Also, I like the design of the hotel. It gave me warm feeling.

Thank you. Hope great prosperous come to you.

Where else can you get a double bedded room, with air-con and satelliteTV, for $90 a night. Nowhere, that's where. Also, the double rooms (6 of them) all face looking out over a quiet lagoon and have balconies. It really is excellent value for money.

If like us you arrive in the Maldives too late to go to your actual resort - you'll find yourself looking somewhere to stay the night near the airport. This place fit the bill for us.

Pros:
- Close to airport and efficient free airport transfer on arrival (met by the hotel staff).
- No ferry required as on Hulhumale not Male so easy 10 min drive
- Rooms basic but had A/C and satellite TV
- Had all our seaplane details and dropped us back off at airport following morning all on time and they even helped us check in at the seaplane terminal
- Cheap compared to others we looked at
- Free breakfast

Cons:
- Rooms are pretty basic and small - fine for 1 night for us but luxury this is not
- Area around the hotel still really a building site
- Doors are pretty thin...if you're not getting up early you'd probably be woken by others moving around. Not an issue for us as we were up and heading out to our island by 9.

We choose this hotel because it is near the airport island namely Hulhumale. It is just 10 minutes away from the airport and we don’t have to take the boat transfer to Male since it is 10pm at Male when we arrives Maldives. Just for your information, the city of Maldives is on an island and space are limited so kindly do not expect luxurious space at the hotel which I would able to accept.

Here is my review on Fuana Inn:-
Hotel Environment: Hotel are not luxury but I believe it is just nice for a night transfer while waiting for the next morning transfer to island resort since the internal seaplane transfer do not fly at night. The hotel is near to the airport island and the cost is around $85/night during month of June.

Around the hotel: Nothing much surrounding the hotel except the simple beach in front of the hotel where the beautiful morning at Maldives welcomes us.

Hotel Service & Staff: The service are reasonable but lack of hospitality like we need to wait for breakfast after morning call was make and also people are standing still waiting for tips. We did tips for better service but not all.

Room Comfort: Room is small with basic bathroom and a double bed for us. I love their cable TV where there are many channel but too bad we did not really utilize it because is just a night transfer.
