10/10 Exceptional

The best part of this resort, asides from the per beauty of the island is the people that work there. From Imthyaz, Vanesa, Eni, the Marine Hub Crew, they make you feel so welcomed and are so kind. This time, I also enjoyed the excursions, the food is amazing. I'll keep coming back to Malahini.

4/10 Fair

Dissapointing stay...misleading info...
We went as a couple for a couple of days based on the listing that the Hotel had pool and bath tubs for all visitors. Upon arriving, we were informed that there were no public pools or bath tubs and if we wanted one, we have to pay another $250 per night to upgrade the rooms to villa with a pool. Since it is an island you cannot even turn around despite the misleading information on the website.We would have definitely chosen another property had we known that there were no public pools. Having said that, the kitchen chefs were excellent and made special effort to prepare vegetarian meals for us.

Fabulous staff and Fabulous island
The staff were fabulous and work so very, very hard. They do everything with a smile. The island is beautiful and close to Male so short transfer. Something to be mindful off when booking an island in the Maldives, if you don't want a long transfer after a long flight. I have no complaints
