More about Fihalhohi Tourist Resort
Fihalhohi- Maldive's very good 3*+ Hotel Island
FIHALHOHI ..... This island turned out to be the very right choice from the very first moment - for us.
Room rates differ depending on period of year. Most expensive time is Jan. to March. November/December (besides Christmas and New Year time!) is a lot cheaper. On Fihalhohi we payed 80€/pers. in Feb 03 and are going to pay approx. 45€ in December 04 for the same category , i.e. "comfort" bungalow (each time full board instead of half board as we booked very early, i.e. approx. 4 months before)!
We were picked up by a speed boat directly after we had left the airport area (and the transfer was just for us two!) and the transfer by this boat was a real lovely experience already! It took us about 45 Min. to reach Fihalhohi (Fiha). On arrival they gave us a very warm welcome (even in German Language :-) ) and this stayed like this the whole time. Friendly and helpful service, good food, relaxing atmosphere, very nice rooms and the super snorkeling/diving facilities at the house reef just a few steps ahead. GREAT! I would recommend this island to anyone! Rooms are in bungalows of 2 or 4, each bungalow not more than 20m to approx. 40m away from the beach and with view towards the sea/beach. We had booked a Deluxe Room (now called "Comfort") and very much enjoyed this. Other types of rooms (standard, classic looked good, though, too. All are spacey and nicely furnished. I understand, the standard category has no A/C and only cold water. Classic cat. offers hot water, A/C on request and at an extra charge, Comfort cat. includes hot water, A/C, a nice bathroom. (for the fairly new water bungalows look next tip below)
Payments: credit card at end of your stay. For tips to service staff, remember to take a few one-dollar-notes with you!
For each room there are 2 sun beds available with the room numbers written on them - which guaranties that there are no "fights" for sun beds to be expected... ;-)
Prices for drinks and food are much higher than in Sri Lanka , Thailand, Malaysia or Bali, but compared to other Maldives 3star islands, they are very reasonable. i.g. 1liter-bottle of mineral water approx. 3€ , a beer approx. 3,50/4€. Of course, the more stars a hotel-island has, the more expensive drinks and food are! A couple we met in Sri Lanka and who was returning from Maldives stayed on a 5star island had payed approx. 10€ for one beer (well, that's what they told us)!
Fazit: Congratulations to anyone (and I envy him already) who decides for this island when going for a holiday on Maldives!!!
Fihalhohi Island - Water Bungalows
The fairly new water bungalows now on offer are even more spacey, extraordinary nicely furnished and with direct access to the sea from the private terrasse. They seem to be ALWAYS booked out except for some time in between when they are probably empty for a day or so.
We took the chance to rent one of them which was offered to us on our arrival for just one night for an extra pay. Well, a real gorgeous experience!!!! Makes you feel "very special". To sleep in this lovely four poster bed with full view to the sea and being able to leave the doors open all night, listening to the sound of the waves was soooooo romantic. They are built such way, that nobody can look into your bungalow, although they are situated directly one next to the other.
The bungalow is devided into more than just one room, i.e.entrance, "kitchen" part, dressing and "office" part, bathroom with shower and tub (toilet in an extra room), lovely sleeping area with the four poster bed and couch corner. Outside big terrasse with 2 sun beds, table and four chairs in a roofed part of the terrasse. Steps leading down to a platform from wich you have direct access to the sea. The terrasse can be reached from the sleeping room as well as from the bathroom.
Maldives on a budget
Visited October 2006, stayed in a Comfort room on full board basis.
Highly recommend this low budget resort.
Has all the high standards of the other resorts I have visited. If this resort had a swimming pool it would be ranked higher. No need for a swimming pool with the Indian ocean a few steps away from your room.
All Rooms are bungalow type accomodation - facing the ocean.
Classic (standard rooms) are in pairs but private. Only main difference is that you have to pay for aircon in these rooms (free in comfort rooms).
Comfort are in pairs or in blocks of four (two up two down).
Food standard and choice very good in main restaurant.
Layed back, casual, no news no shoes resort. Rooms on the North beach are in the better location - having the better part of the beach and the sun all day, where as the other side of the island has shade in the afternoon and the beach disappears with high tide.
Stayed in room 25 which was on the lower floor of a block of 4, about half way from the main restaurant / bar area and in an excellent position on the island for enjoying the beach and the snorkelling. Also great for walking to the edge of the beach and watching the sunset.
Weather = Excellent. A couple of showers here and there during our fortnight stay but nothing persistant.
Snorkelling the house reef was excellent, seeing the usual mix of tropical fish plus the resident turtle and eagle rays.
Highlight = sitting on the beach at 13.00hrs watching the dolphins go by just a matter of 100 meters away (max) at the edge of the reef.
Fiha is one of a few islands which was still under Maldivian management - majority of the other islands are now Sri-lankan managed.
our fourth trip
We have just returned from our fourth holiday to Fihalhohi and we have again had a fantastic holiday. Value for money, a classic room which is spacious and clean, friendly and helpful staff and very reasonable meals, in particular breakfast which includes cooked breakfast with a chef cooking to your request, patisseries, cheese, ham, fruit, etc. Difficult to imagine wanting for more..... The snorkeling is great and the beach still has non pumped sand which is difficult to acheive in the Maldives with the erosion.problem. The boat to and from the airport is part of the Maldives magic. Our 4 year old has been doing the boatride since she was a baby in a pushchair and although it goes quite fast and some people feel a bit sick this is largely outweighed by the beauty of the scenery and the holiday in general. First Choice flight is fab and we arrived 3 hours before ,this and last year and were also nearly the last to check in as the previous person writing a review. That is the way the cookie crumbles, all the other people got there first. We'll be back!!!
We spent two lovely weeks in a comfort room situated at the north side of the island with a beautiful wide stretch of beach. The room was clean and comfortable. As mentioned before, the food can get a little samey but there were some choices. It was definitely worth paying the extra for the delicious sea food platter at the Surf cafe. Watching the sunset at the surf cafe is not be be missed!
This is their peak season so the island does appear somewhat busy but we could always find a quiet area in the shade.
The spa was good and the massages are good value compared to UK prices.
The dive team were just excellent. They are freindly, helpful and genuinely want everyone to enjoy their dives. I happen to get an ear ache and Sabrine, one of the dive leader was so brilliant, even to the point of supplying me ear drops and pain killers.
This is our fifth trip to the Maldives but our first to Fihalhohi. This island is definitely good value for money and we would would not hesitate to go back!
We booked our 2 week holiday with First Choice and chose to stay at Fihalhohi resort over Christmas and New Year 2006/07 after reading the top rated reviews on Tripadvisor.
We fully understood that this was a 3-star resort prior to booking and was not expecting 5-star luxury standards. We are writing this review to give our honest opinion of the resort.
We have rated Fihalhohi 2 out of 5 for the following reasons, the good points being listed below:
1. The food was generally to a good standard with plenty of selection and freshly grilled fish/meat.
2. The island itself in its natural state is very nice with good house reef and plenty of space on the beach for sunbathing even during this peak season (Christmas/New Year).
However, we had problems during our stay which totally ruined our 2 weeks.
Our first 2 nights were in a classic room and found this to have a mouldy bathroom, dirty lampshades and in general a desperate need for refurbishment. Our next night we moved to a comfort room which was mouldy, dusty, smelt of urine and had cracked floor tiles, leaving dangerous sharp edges, and again in desperate need for refurbishment.
We were given the option to upgrade to a water bungalow (which, we may add you can only do once on the island by paying an additional USD$110.00 per night upfront direct to the resort).
We stayed in water bungalow number 145 and my husband woke up in the morning at 4.00am to a cockroach crawling over his shoulder which came out of the pillow!!! After this incident there was no way we were able to sleep and between ourselves began a thorough inspection of the room. Two hours later, we managed to catch a further 15 cockroaches!!!!!!!!
During our thorough inspection we pulled out the bed and all free standing furniture/kitchen unit, only to find it was thick with dust, hair, dead cockroaches, cockroach faeces and general filth. It was easy to see that these areas had not been cleaned for months.
The following morning, we complained to the Front Desk Manager, named Prabeth whose short response to our complaint was “It is the first I have heard of this and we do not have cockroaches on the island”.
We were appalled by the response, more importantly his attitude was that he could not be bothered and he did not care. His resolution was to organise a thorough clean of the water bungalow.
Two hours later after the ‘thorough clean’ we returned to our room, only to find that this was NOT THOROUGH – behind the units the filth was still there. All the cleaners had done was sprayed insecticide!!! We found a further 3 cockroaches which this time we caught in a water bottle as evidence (see picture).
We complained again to Prabeth with the evidence. He quickly took this off us and hid away the cockroaches under the front desk dealing with other guests first and not, very rudely resolving our complaint there and then.
We could only complain by phone to our First Choice Representative, Zita who in the whole 2 weeks of our stay did not visit the resort AND has never visited Fihalhohi due to ‘geographical’ reasons (???)! **Please Note** tour operators from other countries i.e. Germany had a representative present on the resort!!
On speaking with another Front Desk Manager, we were told that a total of 53 cockroaches were found in our room after the insecticide was sprayed!!
We felt unable to sleep easily in our room after knowing this fact and were always on edge looking for cockroaches. On average we found 3 cockroaches per day for the rest of our stay (10 days!).
We requested to move to another room and were told everything was fully booked and we would have to stay put with the cockroaches.
We also overheard of other guests complaining of cockroaches. It makes you wonder what the cockroach and pest situation is like in the kitchen and food storage area???
The management staff did not deal with our complaint seriously and we were totally appalled with what they considered a "solution". The experience we had was extremely disappointing considering ‘tourism’ is their main industry.
It should not matter what classification of the resort, it should never be dirty with cockroach faeces or tired/run down facilities. Management of any resort should always put customers concerns as a high priority and seek a suitable and amicable solution to rectify problems.
If during your stay you have no cause for complaint, you will be treated very well by the management staff. However, if you have a concern you will soon learn that the management do not care for anyone with a complaint. They quickly show their true colours which is to grab tourist’s money at every opportunity with minimum amount of up keep to the island. After speaking with other guests in the resort, they felt the same.
In the words of the First Choice Representative, Zita “They make their own rules on the islands”.
Overall, an enjoyable experience
We booked a one week holiday with First Choice commencing the middle of January 2007. Although we have been to the Caribbean a number of times before, this was our venture to the Maldives. The flight compared favourably to the long haul Virgin and BA cattle class flights – the seat pitch being an impression 33 inches. A couple we met in the Maldives, who had travelled over on the same flight but in the Premium cabin, advised that the upgrade was really not worth the extra money they had paid.
The one hour speed boat ride to the island was not a problem, though I must admit the return journey was quite rough, and if you were prone to sea sickness it would have been a miserable journey.
On arrival we got the usual welcome described by other reviewers. As with the previous reviewer, we also tipped the 2 guys carrying our cases $2 each and they both looked very unimpressed! Our comfort room was on the first (top) floor of a block of 4 rooms. I confess to being a bit disappointed with the location of the room which was quite close to the Dive School and within easy earshot of the island’s power generator. The continuous throb of the generator was not really a great problem but the smell of diesel fumes and the occasional incinerator fumes were really not very pleasant when the breeze was blowing in our direction. The location had other drawbacks, the path in front of the rooms was very busy, especially at meal times, and the people occupying the ground floor rooms in that area would very little privacy. Also beach here was narrow and not particularly pretty due to the naff wire netting covering the rocks used to make up the groins to reduce beach erosion. I did asked to move to one of the rooms on the other side of island, which in my opinion were much better located in every respect, but was told that the island was full.
The room itself was ok and of a decent size, the bathroom could have done with a makeover but everything seemed clean enough and there was no signs of the dreaded cockroaches mentioned by a previous reviewer – perhaps the diesel fumes kept them away!
The meals were fine considering everything had to be brought in by boat. The salads and deserts were good but one week was about enough for me. However, if you love tuna then you will be over the moon as you can have it breakfast, noon and night if you want. As others have said, you generally share a table at meal times but we found this to be a plus as it was nice to talk to other people over a meal. Smoking at meal times could be an issue as our continental friends tend to light up without any regard to those around them. However, it was not an issue for us as we were allocated a table close to the outside of the restaurant and the breeze blew any smoke away from us.
Snorkelling on the house reef was brilliant, a far greater abundance of fish than I have seen on any of the Caribbean islands. However, it was occasionally difficult to snorkel due to the high winds and rough sea which we experienced throughout our week on the island. Other people said that it was unusual as the sea would normally be like a millpond, so I guess we were a little unlucky.
In summary, we really enjoyed our holiday on Fihalhohi, the staff were friendly and the snorkelling exceptional. Go with realistic expectations and you will not be disappointed, it is after all, a 3 star resort at 3 star prices. It is not perfect but it does, in my opinion, represent very good value for money. Would I go back to Fihalhohi again, probably not; would I go back to the Maldives again, definitely yes.
The most relaxing holiday ever!
We arrived as first-timers on Fihalhohi (pronounced Fee-a-lo-ee) and in the Maldives, having read and benefited from the reviews of previous Tripadvisor holidaymakers. Having seen so many photos of the island it almost seemed as if we had been there before.
Our luggage was carried on the shoulders of porters from reception to our room, 20+ kg each! A tip of more than $2 would seem adequate for this slave labour. We were surprised that no wheeled vehicle was used, as we were puffed out by the high humidity by the time we arrived in our room near the Blue Lagoon bar. At departure our suitcases were transported to the boat in a wheelbarrow, by one porter.
On arrival we were told that we had to put our watches back another hour, as Fihalhohi, although to the west of Male, is one hour ahead of it, so a total of 5 hours ahead of Britain. We forgot to do this and almost missed our first breakfast, as at 9.30 a.m. punctually the restaurant closes, also at 2 p.m. after lunch.
We were happy with our spacious upstairs comfort room, as it had everything we needed. We were amused to find a big brolly in a stand, but towards the end of our stay we experienced two rainy days and were glad to be able to walk to the restaurant without being drenched. I did not particularly like the blue showergel nor the green handwash gel, both of which were difficult to coax out of the dispensers. No shampoo provided, so bring your own.
There was no television in the rooms or elsewhere, but this helped us to forget about the trouble the world is in for a bit, and we did not miss it.
We found getting up in the morning not as easy as in other tropical destinations we have visited. Our room was west-facing, it had the foliage of lots of trees right outside the balcony, and there were three (openable) tinted French windows. At 7.30 a.m. the light conditions resembled those of a gloomy autumn morning which did not inspire one to get up.
An anti-insect device is provided, and we brought a similar gadget, - though I was still stung by insects! I had brought different creams and liquids against this, but found in the end that TCP was the most effective relief from itching skin.
There are lots of tiny geckos which supposedly consume these pests. We also saw lizards climbing up trees, and in late afternoon flying foxes (type of bat). In the sea, close to the beach, we often saw blacktip sharks of about 40 cm, which apparently are only interested in crustacea rather than humans. To think we have been swimming close to sharks, and lived to tell the tale! Looking down into the sea in the snorkelling area near the landing jetty, this seemed like a giant aquarium with crystal clear water and exotic, colourful fish swimming around.
As a previous reviewer reported, it is no longer possible to walk around the island on a sandy beach; in many places it has been worn away by erosion. This is most noticeable near the boathouse where the beach is shored up with blue and yellow cement sacks filled with sand, which at times shed their contents and float around on the water. In other places big stones have been deposited on the shoreline to stop further erosion. There are places where the water has hollowed out the soil from under a palm tree which soon will fall prey to the sea. We heard that other Maldivian islands’ beaches too have suffered the loss of sandy beaches due to erosion.
The beach on the northern part of Fihalhohi, near the water bungalows, is the widest and has lovely powdery sand. The water there is clear at all times, whereas near the groynes it sometimes looked as if there were frothy soap suds on the water.
One bonus is that sun loungers are room-numbered, as well as the beach towels, two per room. There is plenty of natural shade under the many trees, and plenty of sunny places for those who wish to roast themselves. Amongst the palm trees there are deciduous trees, and these shed their leaves continuously, so every morning the porters are busy raking them up to keep the place tidy.
There is sand almost everywhere on the island, and we soon gave up wearing sandals. The Blue Lagoon bar’s floor is sand! Many other holidaymakers went barefoot even to the restaurant, so we did too, especially as we found that in the heat and high humidity our feet were a bit swollen and not wearing sandals was more comfortable. So there is no need to weigh down your luggage with footwear.
At mealtimes, including dinner, only a small minority of guests dressed up. Most people came in shorts and t-shirts, or light summer wear. So no need to pack evening robes!
There is a games room with an excellent table tennis table, various board games, and an exchange library. This had lots of tempting books, but many of them in languages other than English, reflecting the nationalities of the other holidaymakers.
We did buy and use two one-hour tickets at $8 each for the internet, which was much faster than we were led to believe. The small room with the two internet computers was always pleasantly cool!
We liked the food in the Palm Grove Restaurant, but would say that lunch and dinner were better than breakfast. There were always healthy options like raw, grated vegetables, and fruit for dessert, as well as fried foods and pizzas. We always found foods we liked, and I especially liked the curries at lunchtimes, and the passion fruit for dessert. For about 10 of our 14 days on Fiha we shared a table with a charming couple who were the only other guests with whom we had regular contact. Hi there, Adele and Dave!
I was concerned to observe that many of the plastic bottles of 1.5 litres of water which sold for $3 plus 10% service charge arrived at the table with the seals broken, and often there was a visible gap between the cap and the ring of plastic on the bottle neck. The small bottles of coke and diet coke were often served without caps at all. The waiters usually started taking the caps off the bottles on their way to the table, so that this practice of not supplying bottles with intact seals, which would not be permitted in Europe, was not very obvious to most guests.
We did not scuba dive, nor did we go island hopping, or shopping in Male or elsewhere. The shop on Fihalhohi has a wide range of goods and souvenirs, so for that reason there is no need to travel further. Our main aim for going to Fiha was to get away from it all and relax, by swimming in the warm water, reading books, playing scrabble, and dozing. Being on an island, especially such a small one, heightens the feeling of having left everyday life behind. After a fortnight of this we felt we had enjoyed the most relaxing holiday ever!
Our trip back home went very smoothly (16 ½ hours door to door), thanks to clockwork organisation by First Choice. Zita, the First Choice representative, may not visit the island very often, but she did respond virtually immediately to my sms messages and was very supportive and helpful, and did make an effort to make our return flight an even better and more comfortable experience than the flight to Male. A big Thank You to Zita, and all staff at Fiha who work so hard in the heat and humidity to make memorable holidays for us possible.
We live in Bournemouth but chose to fly with First Choice from Manchester as by so doing, we saved £200 each and got 16 nights as opposed to 14 available from Gatport Airwick.
3 weeks before we left, we received a call from FC offering us Premier upgrade for half price so we went for that as well!
Journey up was pleasant and we found Budget Airport Car Parking which cost us £39 for 16 nights, which we thought was a mega bargain, and they were very good with directions and pick ups etc.
Outward flight was comfortable and on time, crew were great and we arrived at Male cream crackered but looking forward to the boat-trip, 50minutes by speedboat which thankfully, passed without incident, no pirates or massive waves.
First sight of Fiha was beautiful and the welcome drink went down a treat, sun beating down on us and I just wanted to jump into the ocean asap.
We booked a Classic room ( 41 ) which was great, just what we needed, single story, semi-detached but suprisingly better than we expected. Twin beds, which they changed to a double matress after a couple of days, ceiling fan, AC availaible at a price, but we managed without. All in all, we were very pleased with the room. Outside, a small patio area and the beach about 20 yards walk.
Following advice , as soon as we arrived, we registered our interest in upgrading to a water bungalow and we were lucky enough to get our last 5 nights in room 149, second on the right as you look at them from the beach. We were charged $55 per person per night but we thought it was worth it as they were fabulous! Rooms 144 and 145 are the ones on the end of each side and they would have the best views of the sunsets.
The food was good, varied and plentiful, always something everyone could eat, no matter how fussy they were. We managed to last the whole holiday without sharing our table.
My only gripe would be that they only give you 1ltr of free drinking water, the rest is charged at $3 for each 1.5 ltr.
The house reef was fabulous, we saw more snorkelling the reef than on our diving trips! Turtles, Morays, Eagle Rays, Sting Rays, black tip and nurse sharks, absolutely awesome!
After our first week, I developed an ear infection which got steadily worse and ended up us chartering a speedboat to Male to visit the ADK hospital, which was superb, many tablets and ear drops wwere taken and after 3 of the most uncomfortable days of my life, I was pain-free, but I did lose out on a week of diving. However, the staff at Ocean Venture Diving were superb as was Nic, the First Choice rep, so thanks all round to them.
Ocean Venture Diving operate the dive school to a very high standard. Offering packages of 6 days diving minimum of 14 dives, including tanks, weights and safety baloon for $378.
01-05 dives charged at $42 each. 06-11 dives charged at $38 each. 12-14 dives charged at $35 each and after 125 dives, the price drops to $32 per dive.
Boat trips are charged at $13 each.
They also offer a list of resort courses subject to a minimum of 2 students right up to Rescue Diver.
Fihalhohi - Bounty Island
"...when diving started"
In September 1992 Helga and I went on holiday to Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
Fihalohi. That is where I started my diving course.
A piece of paradise in the turquoise seas of the Maldives archipelago. 280 mtr. by 450 mtr. long. The Green island with wonderful white sandy beaches and lots of palm trees.
The only things you can do there is: swimming, snorkelling, diving, sunbathing and... enjoy paradise.
Hey, what else do you want to do!
And don't forget to count the millions of stars you will see at night. I never have seen the Milky way in such a way. Wow!!!
The (DeLuxe) apartments on the island are nice and very clean (be sure you have one with airco) Warm water is also available... as long as the sun is shining. Okay, we had only a few sunny days: Bad luck I guess.
All the apartments are "hidden" by the vegetation and are not visible from the sea and not more than about 20 mtrs away from the beach.
The 2 bars, Fischerman's and the Blue Lagoon, offers you cool drinks. The restaurant is the meeting point at night for nice dinners.
There is also a professional diving center. I did my CMAS* certification there and it was great. The dives were incredible wonderful. There is so much to see in those crystal clear and warm waters.
I definitely would go there again.

Fihalhohi Island Resort
After lots of research we have finally booked the Fihalhohi resort, going in mid-June 06. It looks amazing but it would be great to hear from anyone who has visited the island, even better if it was at that time of year...
Thanks, can't wait to get there!
RE: Fihalhohi Island Resort
HI Hope you are well!
I am also lookning at booking the hotel club faru.What made you change your mind and what price and board basis did you get your new holiday at ?
RE: RE: Fihalhohi Island Resort
We've changed to the Fihalhohi resort, which is about an hour south of the airport.
The main reason for changing from Club Faru was the close proximity to the airport and the new land project taking place between the island and the airport. Although I was reassured it would not impede on our holiday, we made the decision that we would rather be further away from Male. Also, to get to the house reef at Faru you have to go by boat, and we just want to be able to snorkel off the beach.
The Faru website is up today www.clubfaru.com and it does look great, but it just wasn't quite what we were looking for.
We have now paid £835 each Full Board, instead of £820 All Inclusive, so overall the holiday will cost us more money which is a shame, but for us I think it was the right decsion.
Hope this helps and have a great holiday!
RE: RE: Fihalhohi Island Resort
Hi.. I might be going to Fihalhohi in mid June too.. I have not booked yet cos the prices are not out with the travel agents but I have been looking at the website so often. I am already in love with the place. : )
RE: Fihalhohi Island Resort
I have just booked to go to Fiha for October 2006. So would be interested to know your views when you return. Sorry I can't be of any help with regards to Fiha, although I have been to Maldives 4 times previously to 4 different islands and Fiha looks just what I want, with sililarities of some of the other islands for a perfect holiday. I am completely hooked on the Maldives and the crystal clear, turquoise blue, Warm inviting Indian Ocean. 31 weeks to go!
If you should want any info about the Maldives in general, please get in touch or look at my Maldives page.
RE: RE: Fihalhohi Island Resort
i have booked to go and have the number of a very good travel agent who we always book with if you would be interested drop me a line
I am going to Fihalhohi in October this year. Has anyone visited this island?
Hi. I just came back from Fiha on 17th June 2006. Its a beautiful island. I am still doing my pages, you are welcomed to check it out. : )
I am going to Fihalhohi in September!!! Counting the weeks!!!
Have you found out any useful info??
Does anyone know if they provide a kettle in the rooms if we want to brew up a coffee??
You can email them and ask:
Chances are though the answer will be no. Its something else they can charge you big money for!
have you tried the hotel website which is full of info and gives you all the contact details www.fihalhohi.net/english/
Thanks for the info guys and gals!
They are great sites, also have all the dive info I'm after.
We were in Fiha Oct 06 in Superior room which did not have a kettle, although Tea and coffee was readily available to help yourself at every meal time, if on full board, in the main restaurant which I have not experience at any of the other four islands i have visited...nice touch:)
I am sure will love Fiha whether it's your first or a repeat trip to the Maldives.
If you would like any further info please email me, otherwise enjoy! H.
Many thanks Heb, just checked out your Maldive pages.. great pics and reports.
I visited Lohifushi in a previous life in 1983 and 1987 and it was hardly built up at all then, but obviously, my present partner won't even entertain going there ! haha.
We've been to Hakuraa ( now called Chayaa Haukraa Lagoon )for the last 2 years in their water bungalows, you should check them out, they're superb value.
Hi,the only type of rooms that have a kettle/coffee facilities is the water bungalows but not the other grade of rooms,we stayed in the classic rooms last time but we are going again next march in a water bungalow(which do) hope that helps you, from Mike.
