Reviews for Maldives holiday, local accommodation


review 9 Nov 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We experienced the real Maldives, met local people and learnt about their kindness and dignity. We accepted their costumes and in exchange they showed us beautiful places. Often the local beach in the island was exclusively for us. Islands and the sea are amazing, every snorkel, dive or boat trip is a magic surprise.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be ready to accept what is offered to you and to abide to local rules, no fancy clothing required, water activities will take up most of your time. Local tourism is a new concept, people are still learning and enthusiastically giving more then you expect.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes the vacation benefited locals who are working really hard to offer the best to tourists. Plastic bottles are still widely used, but in 1 guesthouse they were providing filtered water. In our facilities nothing was wasted and guides always had as a primary focus conservation of the environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We had a blast!!
