We were 3 couples with 3 kids 2.5 years each.. Stayed here for 6 nights.. Wish we had many more..

The people are extremely friendly always smiling and ready to help. I think this is much cause of the management by Ibrahim and Ali who thenselves went oht of their way to fullfill all our and our kids wishes..

We did all activites like scuba (padi diving) snorkelling canoeing night fishing under their guidance and professionals.. Most of the times Ali himself drove us in their speed boat. This made us feel even more special than i could have imagined staying in a fancy bunglow


Best was when we asked for candlelight dinner on the beach they said they never did it but it was simply Perfect..

Bring vegeterians the chef used to sit and discuss the menu and perfected to our taste..

I can surely go on forever but in the end I AM SURELY COMING BACK..

THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR MALDIVIAN DREAM COME TRUE..

My son and I with great pleasure remember our holidays in Stingray Beach Inn.
Very attentive and helpful people working in this hotel. Any problem or request was solved quickly and easily. Hotel has the best location on the island Maafushi: two minutes from shops and one minute to the beach.
Unlike many hotels, we could get our breakfast whenever we wanted, not due to the schedule. I really liked the Maldivian breakfast which was nice to have on the upper terrace, enjoying the beautiful view of the island. My son Zakhar remember with pleasure his laying in hammock in the palm garden and bike riding on hotel's bike. On hotel's speedboate we went on trips, fishing, followed by a BBQ with the day's catch, so tasty prepared by team Stingray.
There is very remarkable man on the island of Maafushi, with whom is very interesting to talk and very pleasant to deal with. I mean Ibrahim, Manager of Stingray Beach Inn and the owner of a very large and beautiful souvenir shop which always open to visitors from Stingray Beach Inn.
If I once again go to the Maldives, I will live only at Stingray Beach Inn, which has real very warm and friendly atmosphere, like in large and happy family. I would like to thank hotel stuff for their efforts and that our vacation turned even better than we might expect!

My vacations in Stingray Beach inn were really incredible mostly because of Ibrahim Musthafa who is the owner and very hospitable innkeeper. Hotel is very nice; it is situated in 1 minute from the only beach in the island. Rooms are quite spacious and there is everything you need – air conditioner, warm water, refrigerator. Mattresses on the beds are especially noteworthy. Being medium hard they are very good for spine. Hotel is not luxurious but it’s brand-new and very homely. Being in the hotel you feel like you are visiting your childhood friend. Staying in the hotel you feel absolutely safe, there is no need to lock the door and you could leave kids playing in the yard while you are drinking ginger beer on the beach. Staff – are young guys, they are very friendly; they played table hockey with our kids and were riding them on motorbikes. So if you want to spend you vacations in the very unusual way, get new acquaintances, feel yourself in the wonderful atmosphere, welcome to Stingray Beach Inn – the best of exotic.

Pros: Luxurious Rooms, Great Facilities, Excellent location in Maafushi, Ibrahim the manager, The Food, Great Service.

The best place in maafushi island and probably in the entire Maldives. The hotel is brand new with luxury rooms fully equipped, very clean and well designed. It within less than a minute walk to maafushi's north and only beach. the staff is friendly and always willing to go the extra mile for you. Specially the owner/manager ibrahim who was the nicest man we met. The restaurant is also amazing, the included breakfast is rich and tasty and the food is in high standard and delicious. we defiantly will recommend to all of our friends and will come back in the future.

Don't miss the southern reef's snorkeling site. The hotel speed boat can bring you to there. You'll find rich corals and many kinds of fish.
