Ive got bitten by bedbugs!!!!
I wouldnt recommend staying here for a night due to bedbugs. Ive stayed in less than 3star hotels in the past and have never experienced being bitten by bedbugs. Until now, a week after Ive stayed, there are still marks all over my body. The hotel staff is nice and the location is conveniently situated in the center so i have no complaints on that

Lovely small hotel with a real local feel.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel more so because of the friendly manager Mr Shayam who was very helpful and professional in every way. He was always there personally at hand should we have any queries or questions. Although the rooms had all the facilities they could be have been dusted more frequently but the beds were always kept nice and clean and we only came to sleep here at night which was satisfactory for me and my family. Expedia needs to update the size of beds in family rooms. As they are actually 1 queen size and one smallish looking double only, not 2 queen sizes.

I loved Maafushi.
stayed in WhiteShell Island Hotel & Spa for 7 nights! the best 7 nights in maafushi. I am glad I chose this hotel. close to beach and just beside Maafushi Dive & Active Water Sports. The staffs of the hotel were genuinely polite and friendly. Big thanks to Shyam for always asking how was my day and recommending on tours/trips. Would like to thank the sri lankan guys who served me meals during my stay. room were cleaned twice a day. the breakfast were simple and enough to last you till lunch. just a recommendation: the juice always needed to be asked. other than that service has been excellent. I loved the idea of Excursions board and the guests message board. I would say unique to WhiteShell :) if you go Maafushi, this would be one of the best hotel in terms of convenience and comfort. I loved maafushi. I loved Maldives. Thank you for the hospitality. I will be back :)
