Incredible Diving and lodging on a nice island
This was a fantastic choice! I researched for a very long time before finding these great deals at South Ari Dive center. I chose this island for it's superb diving. We spent 7 nights. We chose a large King room and half board (breakfast and dinner). The lodging for this type of room was the Mala Boutique hotel. It is perfect right by the beach meals were served on the beach! The room was comfortable with everything we needed, hot water, ac, toiletries wifi, tv. The staff is amazing, very helpful and accommodating. The food was delicious and properly preparedand varied. you could tell the chef has proper training. They were willing to accommodate any limitations. My understanding is they have several accommodation options they are all close together and meals are served at Mala. We added diving which was an exceptional value and experience. They are a safe and caring PADI 5 star resort. We saw whale sharks, mantas and some incredible reefs. This is some of the best diving in the world! I did a lot of research and the Maldives can be confusing. This lodging is on an inhabited island a 1.5 hour $35USD daily speedboat ride from Male. There is also a ferry a few times a week. The island can easily be walked around and is s all, there are some basic shops and restaurants. There was 4G reception.
