Malahini Paradise Island
Malahini is a beautiful resort.From the moment we landed at Male for our boat transfer to the hotel to day we sadly had to leave, everything was perfect.Staff,food, accommodation was perfect.We stayed for 10 days in beach villa 106 all inclusive which was kept spotless by Yeasin.The whole resort team work so hard to make everything perfect.Days were spent snorkeling (we saw so many different fish and even sharks) Chilling at Blu bar where the fab staff made us delicious drinks.Thanks to Dhanushka and the other guys for making us necklaces and birds out of palm leaves.Our last night we were treated to a 3 course evening meal for those who had a long stay, it was devine.Thank you Malahini team for making our holiday perfect and one that we will never forget

Our rooms were very small, a bit disappointing as it was advertised as deluxe rooms.

amazing stay, delicious food and courteous staff
malahini kuda bandos is a great property. the room we booked was a garden room, which was pretty spacious and clean. rooms have in-room slippers, umbrella for use in the hotel, coffee-tea and a minibar. a tv which has sufficient channels for viewing pleasure. staff are kind and courteous. special mention of akhil and kai at the buffet restaurant Maaga who are always smiling and friendly. the other staff at the restaurant and the blu bar are also very courteous and professional. the air-con works just fine. shower pressure is great and bed is very comfortable. do not leave food exposed in the room as its an island and attracts a lot of ants. the island is very clean. i hope the hotel will stop using single use plastic like bottled water and give glass bottles in the rooms and at the restaurants. once finished guests can refill. we could see so many guests who ordered bottled water in restaurant and left them behind consumed less than half. the housekeeping staff are slack. inspite of asking them our room wasnt serviced two days in a row. also beware of some of the eastern european tourists. we had an incident where we left our sunglasses on the dinner table to get food from the buffet and saw a family taking my sunglasses. also dont be shocked to see them walk around half naked in the restaurant barefeet with sand all over. i hope the hotel management can do somethin g about this. this property is great. book it with no hesitation

I love this place. It's so clean here. The service is the best I've ever had. There's so many food offerings. They are expensive so bring money or order all inclusive.
