Budget Maldives. Maafushi island

Author: Katerina
Date of Trip: April 2012

I came here the second time and it was an absolutely different experience in comparison with the previous visit but again wonderful. If you decide to go there you will feel yourself like in out-of-town house with the amazingly beautiful warm ocean and palm trees near by. All staff is very friendly and caring like your good friends.

There are two courts in the guest house. One of them is a café area. There are wooden tables with big umbrellas and very comfortable armchairs with leather cushions. This court is located in the palm garden.

The second one is an indoor court. It is a nice place for sunbathes in bikini (comfortable beach beds and shower). This court can also be used as a playground for kids.

There was also a kitchen for guests in Summer Villa. Everyone could use tableware, toaster, and coffeemaker facilities or take boiling water for independent meals. But it was also possible to order the stuff to cook lunch for you.

Dinner was a buffet. Every evening the staff lighted candles and so each dinner turned into a romantic dating. If you decide to come with children you should not worry about food. My son (3 years old) enjoyed food in Summer Villa café.

Rooms were spacious and furnished with a large soft bed and bedside tables, a large wardrobe with a wooden safe inside, a dressing table with bench, fridge, powerful AC, fans, etc. Every room had a private toilet and shower with hot water. Soap and shampoo were a kind of pleasant surprise for guests. Bed sheets and pillowcases were changed regularly. Room was very clean and cozy.

There are two beaches on Maafushi island. The Indian Ocean is calm and very beautiful. You can enjoy it as a natural swimming pool. There is a nice coral reef nearby.

Summer Villa guest house is the best place to relax, have a good rest and get a charge of positive emotions and energy. The same time if you wish an active or extreme leisure the hotel staff can arrange excursions and active kinds of sports for you. The guest house provides cheap excursions to several resort islands, Park Island, Sand Bank, Manta and Wale shark spots. They can arrange dolphin watching, fishing and snorkeling in very picturesque areas. We also saw Bodu Beru – the show of traditional dances and songs of the Maldivian culture. There is Wi-Fi in the hotel.

Recommend the transfer from the airport to the guest house on the speed boat!
Summer villa guest house is a wonderful place where want to come back again and again…
