As the name of the hotel prompts it is in the middle of the island-of the Male, capital of Maldives. This is very convenient for exploring local historical sites, shops with souvenirs or traditional fish market. Even if this hotel is not far from the boat jet, especially with many pieces of luggage you might want to take a taxi. It will cost you about 15 NMR. As the taxi drops you off, hotel personal will take care of your luggage and you only have to register at the reception, pick up your key and take a lift to your floor.Rooms are reasonably specious with comfortable beds. Very pleasant welcome in hot Maldivian weather is a bottle of water waiting for you next to the bed. All rooms h...Read More

This hotel is also known as Airport hotel as it is on the same island as airport. White hotel transfer minivans run all the time between hotel and the airport. As for the accommodation it is nearly always fully booked and it is more expensive than hotels in Male. So why to mention this place? It has a restaurant with a really good food. During the hot days you might welcome air-conditioned inside area but in the evening it is preferable to watch the sunset and listen to the waves melting in the beach while chilling by the pool. As the night falls palms around the pool get lit and the moon comes out. You can sit here for hours watching the moon sipping wine or beer. Yes, I said sipping...Read More

Bistro Jade is like an oasis in the desert. It is conveniently placed closed to the jet for boats arriving from the airport so you can land here straight away and get a first breath of Maldivian air. While chilling out you may as well get connected to the Internet and send message home that you arrived safely. This bistro provides free connection to anyone who takes any little refreshment here. Drinks are not the only thing that’s worth taking here. They also serve selection of imported food. All is very fresh and tasty which explains why the prices are not exactly low. If you prefer to enjoy your meal in the hotel, Jade runs takeaway services as well. For those working in the office Jade...Read More

The name pizzeria might create an idea that you can buy some pizzas here. Well, I did not seen any and the place did not look like they can make them, but perhaps I was here in the wrong time of a day. What was wrong time for pizza was a perfect time for a sort of mysterious date. Why mysterious? Well this place is surprise after surprise. The way here leads through sort of doggie area where I would never go on my own after dark. To be honest with you I was not feeling quite secure here even recently passing self-defense course and with my 2-meter tall muscular boyfriend next to me. (On the way out I took pictures of the front gate of the access path so you can find it, see photos.) The...Read More

Would you like your holiday to be a bit more exiting? Then dive! I visited the Biyadoo island for the second time after 10 months. In a life of an average person 10 months doesn’t mean that much but Biyadoo diving center went through big changes. Its previous excellent leader was promoted and the center got new Italian bases leader. Unfortunately, this guy did not prove himself to be very good and the interest in diving among island guests was rapidly increasing. As everything in capitalist world is driven by profit, this guy was left very soon. Center was taken over by Daniel Linares, the ex-base leader in Makunudu.He started building all over the good fame of the center. ...Read More
