The magic behind this guesthouse located in Huraa Island, 25min speed boat from Male, is the politness of the staff.
Nafiz, the owner of the guesthouse, and all staff members, are able to make you feel at home, you'll feel like a family. This is the magic behind this kind of accomodation.
I've been there with my collegue during our 2 days off, we needed to go away from the traffic of Male, and it was the best experience we've ever had.
We've met there other travellers, people from Portugal, Spain, Israel, etc all sharing same ideas of vacation and we had dinners all together, we've been snorkeling all together. Amazing!
Really is the place where you can relax and enjoy local lifestyle, far from the resorts environment, where in my opinion you'll never feel like a guest, but just a number.
So thank you so much Nafiz and all of you guys.
I can't wait to be back there, see you soon!

Despite having a rocky start due to a miscommunication between Tripadvisor and us, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Nafiz and his team. The team always go above and beyond to ensure we're comfortable. Nafiz went the extra mile to connect us with a local dive operator who in turn, brought us out for some world class dives.

Only minor down side though, was that there's a school rather close to the guest house and we heard a teacher yelling through the speakers (that was in the afternoon and only once out of our 4 days stay).

Thank you for a lovely stay.

One of the best places I have visited in my life. Very nice clean room, food and activities. The owner, Nafiz, and his team was very helpful and organized the pick up from the airport with very resealable price. I recommend the sand beach visit, which was extraordinarily. The guest beach was very nice and has a relaxing atmosphere.

we really loved the place, the owner and his staff are so nice and always willing to help, the food was delicious, the only guesthouse on the island with sea view, the terrace where we had breakfast was so nice

Room Tip: no 2 is ok when it is not raining, with rain it is very noisy!

To begin with I would be a bit sceptical if you read some of the reviews on here and view the pictures.
Unfortunately for my partner and I our speedboat to our original destination had to turn back to Malé due to extremely rough seas leaving us to make alternative plans for a day/night.
So we ended up at sea shine. Easy enough to make a booking and get there from hulhumale / Malé as we were the only ones staying there. The guest house arranged a speedboat for $80 one way which turned out to be return price so was ok as far as we were concerned. It's apparently normally $160 one way for a 20 minute speedboat ride......absolutely zero chance!
As for the room, there were no bed sheets just a fleece blanket, which was a little odd.
The room also didn't have a window as was the cheaper room, but still not exactly cheap for what you got. The toilet didn't have a seat and when we entered there was a very strong musky smell.
As for the island itself it is absolutely filthy and I would not recommend visiting. The only people swimming in the sea on the far side were some Chinese which says a lot. There's also a lack of decent places to eat.
The owner and staff were all ok and accommodating enough and not pushy which was appreciated.
We were unfortunate with the weather but still even if you are on a budget I wouldn't recommend going to Hurra even on a sunny day unless you have time or an interest to see the real Maldives.
