Last week I have spent a week’s vacation in Stingray Beach inn on Maafushi, Maldives. We have had a wonderful time. As for the room: it was clean, simple, but with everything you need. Airco and fan worked well, which was nice with the heat. The hotel only has ten rooms, which makes it very cozy. In the intimate patio (with hammocks and even a Jacuzzi!) you feel at ease. The hotel restaurant serves great food, we had dinner there every day! Furthermore it has to be mentioned we had the best host ever! Ibrahim, the owner of the hotel, is very kind and helpful and is always there to be of help. The beach is just a small stroll away for the hotel. Be aware that this is a fenced off beach for the few tourists and only there bikinis are allowed. On the rest of the island one should respect the local customs and laws, and be covered up. Also be aware that there is no alcohol allowed on the island due to religious beliefs and laws. But if you can’t do without, you can always have a drink on a neighboring resort island. It is absolutely worth it to make some excursions the surrounding islands. We went to the resort island Rihivelli, which was really nice. Great beach and sea (very shallow which was great with my 1.5 year old), and we actually saw many dolphins swimming around the island. All in all, it was an absolute great week in Maldivian paradise and I will definitely return to spend another vacation at Ibrahim’s Stingray Beach inn!
