Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our modern lodge was built in 2011 and we opened our doors in January 2012.We are striving for nothing less but your perfect dream holiday! Our mantra is "No news, no shoes" and we offer you the real Maldivian experience. In other words: we are the ideal, affordable alternative to unpersonal, big resorts. This piece of paradise offers everything you need to be happy! From relaxing on the beach and tranquil village life, to unbelievable dive sights, fishing spots and of course amazing unspoiled waves for the perfect surf experience. With us you'll enjoy the local island experience with a la carte flexibility and the personal touch of a boutique guesthouse. We offer four double rooms, each with en-suite bathroom and ocean, beach and palm tree views. The beach is only 20 meters from your doorstep. Our local chef Umar and his crew will spoil you with Maldivian specialties such as sea food dishes or, if you like continental cuisine in our beautiful outdoor restaurant. Happy Life Maldives Guesthouse is also available for exclusive bookings for groups and big families. ... more   less
