“Katey was perfect host! He kept in touch with me last 2 weeks before we arrived to Maldives. He has been sending all the information about traveling and reaching the island. The flat is brand new, clean and big enough. The air conditioning works perfectly. The beach is in front of the building. He has all staff for snorkeling for free. There is another public beach close to ferry station. Stay in Villingili not Male! Male is extremely crowded city and there are just few places for swimming. Villingili is local island and it is just 7 mins from Male. The ferry goes every 10 mins to Male and back and costs about 40 Cents. So, if you need to go to Airport or just visit Male, you can easily take a ferry. Some advices for guests! Use Rupee, not USD! The ferry costs 1 USD( 15 MVR) for 2 people. If you pay in MVR, it is just 7 MVR for 2 people. Exchange few USD at airport for Taxi and ferry only. Katey has good exchange rate and he can exchange you dollars. Taxi, Use Avas Ride app at airport or in Male. You can easily get taxi with that app. Prices inside of Male is fixed and it is just 25 MVR.”
Ocean Beach Maldives is located just in front of the beach and has access to its own beach. The villa provides an affordable and exquisite stay, with excusion, snorkeling, fishing trips, picnics, sand bank, manta and dolphin exploring and many more.
“We were there on our family vacation. It was just superb. Right from the time I have booked, I had good support and pointers promptly. Someone was there to pick us up from Airport, the ferry was managed to the island. Everything was as shown on the site. The staff is extremely prompt and very friendly and helpful. They were always available. Island gives the local experience and opportunity to interact with locals. Even though it is small island, it has everything one may need. Couple of restaurants (really slow service) basic grocery shops, great artists and amazing options of snorkelling. The best food is available at Ocean beach Inn itself, but one is to inform them in advance. Bikini beach is great but great place to connect with family.”
Located in the island of Dhangethi in the midst of Alifu Dhaal atoll, the most popular destination in Maldives for diving and snorkeling, the luxury guest house offers you comfortable Deluxe Double Rooms and a private beach for the guests nearby.
“A great experience from begining to end. Ahmed was quick on comm's, and went out of his way to ensure our family trip went well in every way. Excursions and activities were one of the highlights (thanks Abdulah - awesome!) - from night fishing through sunset cruise with dolphins to picnic island and snorkelling. Food was all very good (although the menu fairly basic) ...with BBQ dinner on the beach one of the highlights. The private beach, a 1min walk away, was fantastic, with a great house reef for snorkelling! Being a local island was also a great way to get a better feel for local life. There's obviously not a lot to do other than water activities of course, and being locl there's no alcohol available, so come prepared for this. My only slight negative on the whole trip is in relation to the public beach on the island - after a storm the beach stayed covered in plastic rubbish for over a week with everyone claiming it wasn't their job to clean it up - the locals need to sort an arrangement out for that - but this certainly isn't anything to do with the Manta Inn and our wonderful stay. Ahmed, Abdulah and team - a big thanks from the Fam and hope to see you again soon!”
