Immaculate service, but somewhat worn out hotel
We stayed in Kaani Beach in December 2019. We had a deluxe room with a sea view. We were supposed to have double room, but ended up with similar family room. The service attitude of the staff was throughout our stay immaculate: truly helpful and welcoming. Not matter what we asked, they went above and beyond excellent. The hotel itself is somewhat worn out, which one cannot see from the presentation pictures (see images in review). Also important note: the view from the rooms to the beach and sea is no longer pristine, as a variety of garden shacks have been built in front of the hotel, between the rooms and the sea. All kinds of junk were stored in the shacks, visible also to the hotel balconies (see picture attached, although the photo is almost forgiving to the junk stored). Maafushi itself is a nice island, in the midst of a rapid tourism growth phase. I believe some local said there is almost 3000 bed places in the island now. All tours, boats and services ran smooth in Maafushi, and one can expect almost every situation to be sorted out fast and smooth. I would recommend Maafushi & Kaani beach as a place to start or end your trip, but do try other islands as well in your trip.

On arrival at Maafushi no one waiting for us then while booking in all they seem to want to do is sell you trips when you have had a long distressing journey the room had no soap in the dispenser in the shower the safe was locked shit there is nothing to make a drink no kettle or anything just two bottles of water the sink porcelain was cracked and discoloured the shower head wasn’t working properly as all the water comes out the edges the air conditioning remote wasn’t working and was extremely cold for the first few days I eventually got it to change on the remote the fan remote didn’t work so just had to turn it off the room was so noisy like the windows and walls were paper thin you can hear the booming music from the night boat which is out at see all night you can hear people talking in the street below as if they are in your room and the noise from the motorcycle in the street is again like they are in your room I got very little sleep then there is building work across the street which you can nearly touch as it’s so close and they start working at 7am which is like they are working in your room waking us up at 7am every day except Friday also a very poor view the food was ok but I think they could invest in a new toaster as only one side works on the 4 slice toaster over all needs a refresh not really a 4 star hotel the staff are very nice but a very disappointing experience which should have been a holiday of a life time!

We had a wonderful day at the kaani beach hotel. The hospitality of the staffs are impeccable and we really appreciate their service throughout the 8 days 7 nights when we are there. Micheal is such an incredible host and he made sure we are comfortable during our stay. We brought our parents along and they enjoyed it as much too. The facility is near to the port, beach and the most of the activities. The counter made sure that we had umbrellas when it was pouring and Micheal sat us down to plan the whole itinerary for us. Despite 1 full day of rain, we still got to do everything that we wanted. The activities that kaani tours (affiliated) that they had to offer are affordable and great. We formed a bond with all the boatman and they were just amazing. Thank you for making our trip such an incredible stay. Definitely made the whole trip memorable.
