Barefoot offers a resort concept at a fraction of the price. A stay here allows the opportunity to enjoy resort facilities and be able to explore local life. Barefoot also strives to deliver on a number of eco-friendly practices. The downside for some will be that alcohol is not served at the property but with a complimentary speedboat transfer to their bar boat anchored in the lagoon we feel it’s a compromise worth considering!

The hotel is located within an almost untouched forest on the Maldives local island of Hanimaadhoo in the preserved deep North of Maldives. The dense vegetation allows not only privacy but the opportunity to experience untouched nature and the genuine and natural Maldives, along with all the amenities expected from a modern day accommodation option. A half mile private sandy beach and a turquoise lagoon frame the hotel and invite you to experience an authentic and relaxing holiday at outstanding value.


Positioned within a coconut palm grove and a few steps from the ocean, Island Luxury provides an idyllic island getaway complete with infinity pool. Imagine yourself on an island surrounded by perfect white sandy beaches, avenues of swaying palm trees and magnificent turquoise blue sea. This quiet island of natural beauty sits within Horsburgh Atoll, part of UNESCO Baa Atoll Biosphere reserve and is surrounded by vibrant corals and tropical fish marine life.

Island Luxury Boutique Hotel, offers 4 spacious pool view rooms with open air bathrooms on the upper floor and 4 deluxe rooms, 2 with a small garden area, located on the ground floor. Providing 5* services including a personal butler for each room, and an ever changing ala carte menu. All dishes are prepared in house and combine Maldives traditional cuisine and flavours with a western twist! A property worthy of a standalone stay or a split stay with a resort in Baa Atoll, allowing direct transfer island to island.


Located in Vaavu Atoll, Ecoboo is an Eco Boutique Hotel located on the island of Thinadhoo. The name is a combination of ECOlogic and BamBOO. Over 45 km of bamboo poles have been used throughout the hotel’s construction creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The sustainable initiatives enhance the feeling of luxury at Ecoboo Maldives. The rooms are spacious and tropical, designed to blend in with the natural surroundings. Guests can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, including snorkeling, diving, island-hopping, sunset cruising and fishing. Ecoboo offers a range of dining options, including Acqua Lounge, the main beachfront restaurant and Sol Terrace at Ecoboo’s own floating bar.


Located on the island of Huraa, North Male Atoll, Pearl Sands offers the opportunity to enjoy the comforts of a boutique hotel and discover the local side of Maldives life.
With a private beach only a few steps away from your room, water-sports, diving and a spa on site, you can be as active or relaxed as you choose. We also think the food here is great, a twist of Maldivian and international flavors.
Make time to take a wander through the island, discover a beautiful lake surrounded by mangroves, a boat building yard and the smallest of fish processing ‘cottage’ industries, producing smoked fish and rihakaru, this is a step back in time.


If you are looking to dive South Ari Atoll, Boutique Beach is a great alternative to a resort stay. Boutique Beach is designed, built and run by divers for divers. Well-appointed rooms, complete with unique features such as open-air showers or 4 poster beds, together with its beachfront location and a commitment to eco-friendliness, provide a quality experience. The Boutique Beach team will make you feel like one of the family with plenty of personal service and attention. With daily evening dive briefings and a review of that day’s dive, complete with film footage, divers would be hard placed to find a similar experience elsewhere in the Maldives.


Located on the local island of Mandhoo, Fiyahvahlu has been designed to sit within its natural surroundings. It is enclosed by well established vegetation as well as the ocean. Wide sandy pathways twist through this tropical forest and you never know what may be around the corner! For guests who wish to explore the local island of Mandhoo, Island Hosts offer a guided experience.

With an Instagram worthy large infinity pool, pool bar, dive centre, watersports, gym, badminton and volleyball court, spa, games area, Kids room, ocean swing, a private beach cinema experience and plenty of pathways to walk or run if that’s your thing, Fiyahvahlu offers something for everyone! Including those that don’t want to miss out on sundowners – the bar boat is available throughout the day and accessed by dinghy from the jetty.

If you are looking for a quiet holiday in natural surroundings Fiyavalhu could be the option for you. It is also perfectly placed for Manta Season in South Ari Atoll, a short boat ride from Manta Point. It’s also an option to help stretch your budget if you were also looking to stay on a more traditional resort island in this area of Ari Atoll where prices can be on the higher side.
