If you want to experience the whole bounty island and dream holiday, just book a resort on the Maldives and not a hotel. This is just a hotel (not a 4*) with a private beach with some chairs nothing more. The hotel has facilities for watersport activities and its own private beach area. It is just a smile island and nothing to do. Unfortunately there is just one restaurant where you can have breakfast , lunch and dinner. There is no a la carte menu just a fixed menu with international food ( good food though). While lying on the beach, you can't order any drinks or food. The rooms with a patio don't have a nice sea view. It is just looking at some bushes. Outside the resort it is a horrible walk to the villages to the so called restaurants and shops. Nothing to see there either. I regret not booking a resort.

Dear Maya,

We like to thank you very much for your constructive feedback.

Indeed Huraa is a very small island with very little entertainment facilities.
I have spoken to the town council and be glad to let you know that road facilities will be upgraded
before year end.

With regards to to your feedback on F&B, we have introduced a extended Menu.

We appreciate your comments as we can strive for a better service to our Guest.

Your very truly

Norbert Finger

We loved this hotel. It is small and cosy. We had a sea view room at the first and last floor, 50 meters from the beach. The island is small but has a village....this is why we chose it...because we wanted to see the people who live in the Maldives.
The room with an outside bathroom/shower was really nice with a balcony right on the beach. The restaurant offers very good food...we took the half board which I would recommend...there are only 2 or 3 other restaurants on the island.
We also tried the Balinese spa which was very good.
The staff was extremely helpful and caring.
Value for money was exceptionnal, we paid less than $200 per night, including taxes and transfer which is cheap in the Maldives.

We have just arrived this island of about thousand residents after the 30 minutes bumpy boat ride. The hotel representative met us at the airport and took us to the jetty. After arriving the pier of Huraa, it further takes 5 minutes to arrive the hotel by golf cart, so call shuttle bus service. This in fact also the commuter to and from town.

Interesting is that we are sharing the house reef with ClubMedKani waterville which is just a knot beyond. We shall try snorkelling after settled down. However, it was a disappointment as the current is too strong and there are no fish. We ended up to join a scuba diving trip organised by the affiliated diving shop adjacent. The price is very reasonable for 25 dollars +gst for each with 4 persons or 40+ for 2 persons. The trip was splendid with the operator Lee is so friendly and helpful. We gather at 8 am with hotel shuttle going to the pier and we returned before noon. We snorkel at 2 to 3 locations in looking for Turtles, Dolphin, Stingrays, Sharks and many beautiful tropical fishes. This is for sure worth the while.

The room is spacious enough for Snorkelling trip and the open air toilet bathroom is amazingly designed. Two showers are provided that is most convenient to couples after snorkelling. Wet clothes could be naturally dried with the sun shines in which is better than air-conditioning drying.

We have dinner at the hotel and the food is good except frustrated as only one choice provided for each course from appetizer to desert. Luckily we did not attempt to the half board or full board as most guides recommended. We will go to another restaurant in town with the shuttle service provided by the hotel. We started off with a town tour and then the shuttle drop us off the restaurant. After dinner we were picked up at the restaurant returning to hotel.

This hotel in fact has just one type of rooms offered. They were all beach front. It is only a matter of your preference of ground floor or first floor. We like the balcony floor which can overlook the water passage and the water villas.

For transfer between hotel and airport, you need to check with them in advance for the convenient time for hotel as boat service is not consistently available.

Just so happened that we stay on Sunday and we have the chance to watch a traditionally Bodo Beru big drum music and dance. However, it has been changed a bit somehow to Latin Dance by the performers which is a pity.
