Our short stay packages are ideal for those looking to experience the Maldives on a budget or for travelers who also wish to experience resort life in the Maldives or are planning a vacation in Sri Lanka or India. They offer an excellent way to combine both styles of vacation, particularly as all packages start and finish at Male International Airport and should a package not entirely suit we are able to customize. All of our guesthouse accommodation is handpicked to provide a balance of comfort, good service, local atmosphere and value for money. Some are set facing out to the ocean with a terrace or balcony. Others are built around a private garden or beach area, but in each you can be assured of a warm welcome. Our short stay packages are based on the local island of Maafushi.
Upon the arrival at Male International Airport, you will be received by our representatives and transferred to the hotel at island in South Male Atoll. Upon arrival at your guesthouse you will have time to settle in before exploring the island with your local guide to get yourself acquainted with the layout and to observe Maldives local life. Upon the arrival, you can experience traditional 'hedika' - Maldivian savoury and sweet snacks served with black tea at a local cafe. The dinner will be served at your guesthouse.

Here you have the opportunity to swim, snorkel or just lie back and relax. A picnic lunch will be served before we head off to snorkel in search of turtles.
