Fihalhohi Island Resort - Lets Go Maldives

Fihalhohi Island Resort

Fihalhohi Island Resort

Fihalhohi Island Resort – Fihalhohi is one of the best kept secrets in the Maldives. In our opinion, the best budget family resort in the country. Perhaps the best budget resort – that’s it – no more. Fihalhohi offers, a mix of natural beauty and holiday action. There are a couple of reasons for the obscurity. One is that Fihalhohi is almost alone in the whole west and south-west of the Atoll (“Rannalhi” is its only neighbor).

Though the island is family-oriented, today different nationalities holidays at Fihalhohi. The island is ideal for children. The fact is that there are lots of other children, plus wide open beaches, a shallow lagoon and crucially, plenty of shade. This island is also large and “open” (none of the guests is restricted from going anywhere), so there is plenty to explore. And then there are the water sports, the play areas and the games corridor, which is between the restaurant and reception. Finally, a sympathetic and helpful management.

2 reviews of “Fihalhohi Island Resort

  1. Kateryna / June 11, 2018

    Russian version
    Отель Fihalhohi покорил своей природной красотой, дружелюбностью и профессионализмом персонала. Прекрасный риф начинается буквально в 3-5 метрах от берега, это идельное место для снорклинга в первую очередь, и один из лучших вариантов для недорогого дайвинга. Именно немецкие дайверы составляют большую часть гостей курорта. Номера очень простые, хотя полностью оборудованы – минибар, кондиционер есть во всех категориях, не новые, но цена размещения, отличное питание, бесплатный вайфай и потрясающая природа полность компенсируют этот недостаток. В отеле 4 категории номеров: CLASSIC, COMFORT и PREMIUM расположены на берегу в тени пальм, а WATER VILLA отдельно от основной части острова. Глубина океана возле водных вилл 2,5 метра, а вода на столько прозрачная что кажется там не более 0,5 метра. Кроме богатого рифа с его морскими жителями, на острове много крабов и разнообразных птиц. Отель предлагает погулку на лодке на закате с дельфинами, плаванье с мантами, рыбалку на лодке от 40 долларов и ночную рыбалку с приготовлением пойманной рыбы прямо на лодке от 140 долларов. Помимо активных развлечений, гостям предлагают расслабиться с тайском спа-центре, достаточно большом для такого острова. По вечерам традиционная культурная программа с живой музыкой и танцами. Время на острове и самом отеле Fihalhohi отличается от времени в столице Мале на +1 час, хотя расположен он в 45 минутах езды на моторной лодке. Курорт делает это специально, что бы гости могли насладится рассветом в 6-30 утра и в 07-30 отправится на завтрак. Так что если Вы ищите красивый остров, отличный риф недалеко от берега и радушный сервис за небольшие деньги – отель Fihalhohi лучший вариант!

    English version
    Hotel Fihalhohi has conquered with its natural beauty, friendliness and professionalism of the staff. The beautiful reef begins literally in 3-5 meters from coast line, it is ideal place for snorkeling and one of the best locations for inexpensive diving. It is the German divers who make the majority of the guests of the resort. The rooms are very simple, although fully equipped with a minibar, air conditioning is available in all categories, not new, but the price of accommodation, excellent food, free Wi-Fi and stunning nature fully compensate for this weakness. The hotel has 4 room categories: CLASSIC, COMFORT and PREMIUM are located on the beach in the shade of palm trees, and WATER VILLA is separate from the main part of the island. The depth of the ocean near the water villas is 2.5 meters, and the water is so pure that it seems there is not more than 0.5 meters. In addition to a rich reef with its marine inhabitants, there are many crabs and a variety of birds on the island. The hotel offers a boat ride at sunset with dolphins, swimming with manta rays, fishing on a boat from $40 and night fishing with the preparation of caught fish right on the boat from $140. In addition to active entertainment, guests are invited to relax with a Thai spa, large enough for such an island. In the evenings, a traditional cultural program with live music and dancing provided. Time on the island and at the hotel Fihalhohi is different from the time in the capital Male for plus 1 hour, although it is located 45 minutes away by speed boat. The resort does it specially, so that guests could enjoy the sunrise at 6-30 AM in the morning and at 07-30 AM go to breakfast. So if you are looking for a beautiful island, an excellent reef near the coast and a friendly service for a little money – the Fihalhohi hotel is the best option!

  2. Milana Abitova / June 12, 2018

    Fihalhohi – отель с доброжелательной уютной атмосферой, внимательным, правильно обученным персоналом является хорошим выбором для бюджетного путешествия на Мальдивы. Расположен на острове Фихалохи в атолле Южный Мале, в 28 км от международного аэропорта Велана, трансфер занимает 45 минут на скоростном катере (организуется до 16:00).
    Номерной фонд включает в себя 4 категории:
    Classic – береговые, отдельно стоящие бунгало, либо сгруппированные в блоки по 2 номера.
    Comfort – береговые двухэтажные бунгало, сгруппированные в блоки по 2 или 4 номера с балконом.
    Premium – аналогичны номерам категории Comfort, дополнительно – набор для приготовления чая/кофе, банные принадлежности, халаты и тапочки, спутниковое ТВ.
    Water Bungalow – водные бунгало на сваях.
    Недостатком в каждом номере являетеся, отсутствие характерного для Мальдив тропического душа.
    Отличным вариантом проведения досуга на территории отеля станут различные водные виды спорта, экскурсии, также, рыбная ловля на рассвете, либо на закате солнца. Рыба пойманная на рассвете готовится сразу в лодке, на закате – на острове, в специально отведенном для барбекю месте. Кроме того, для гостей работает школа дайвинга, сертифицированная профессиональной ассоциацией инструкторов по дайвингу (PADI).
    В ресторане отеля Palm Groove гостям подают аппетитные блюда мальдивской и интернациональной кухни. В барах Fisherman’s и Blue Lagoon предлагают широкий выбор алкогольных и освежительных напитков. Гостям, только, прибывшим на остров и опоздавшим на обед предлагают легкий ланч из бутербродов, салатов и различных напитков.
    Основными недостатками отеля являются немного уставшие номера и отсутствие на территории острова бассейна и десткой площадки.
    Однако, богатый домашний риф в нескольких метрах от берега, густая растительность и чистый ухоженный берег с белым песком и кристально чистой водой, разнообразие живностей, в том числе и цапли, гордо расхаживающие по острову – легко перекрывают все возможные недостатки. Также, одним из преимуществ отеля, также, является бесплатный WI – FI по всей территории острова, что не характерно для многих отелей на Мальдивах.

    Fihalhohi is the hotel with a friendly, warm welcoming atmosphere, attentive, properly trained staff which is a good choice for a budget trip to the Maldives. It is located on the Fihalhohi island in the South Male atoll, 28 km from the international airport Velana.
    The transfer takes 45 minutes by speedboat (arranged until 16:00).
    The number of rooms includes 4 categories:
    Classic – onshore, detached bungalows, or grouped into blocks of 2 rooms.
    Comfort – coastal two-story bungalows, grouped into blocks of 2 or 4 rooms with balcony.
    Premium – similar to the Comfort category, in addition – a set for making tea / coffee, bath accessories, bathrobes and slippers, satellite TV.
    Water Bungalow – water bungalows on stilts.
    The main disadvantage in each room is the lack of a tropical shower which is typical for Maldives.
    Various water sports, excursions, as well as fishing at dawn or at sunset will be an excellent option for leisure activities on site. The fish caught at dawn is prepared immediately in a boat, at sunset – on an island, in a specially designated place for a barbecue. In addition, there is a diving school for the guests, certified by the professional association of diving instructors (PADI).
    The Palm Groove’s restaurant serves delicious Maldivian and international cuisine. Fisherman’s and Blue Lagoon bars offer a wide selection of alcoholic and refreshing drinks. Guests, who just arrived to the island and late for lunch are offered a light lunch of sandwiches, salads and various drinks.
    The main disadvantages of the hotel are a bit old rooms and the absence of a pool and a children’s playground on the island.
    However, a rich house reef which is a few meters from the shore, dense vegetation and a well-groomed beach with white sand and crystal clear water, a variety of living creatures, including herons, proudly walking along the island – easily cover all possible shortcomings. Also, one of the advantages of the hotel, too is free WI-FI throughout the island, which is not typical for many hotels in the Maldives.
