It was an absolute joy to stay here, mostly because of Mazin and his kindness. He is the sweetest man and some of the reviews below here are just ridiculous. The guesthouse is quaint and comfortable - outdoor showers, great beds. The local food is made by his wife and others in the community, and is just fabulous. Loved the island. It was calm and accessible to great diving (whale sharks) and snorkelling. Mazin is an expert spearfisher too. Hope to be back. Very reasonably priced, and just a beautiful community focussed experience.

Noovilu Suites is located in a local island which makes it a definite reason for people looking for a taste of the Maldivian culture whilst enjoying a perfect holiday! We were lucky enough to be at the guest house when there were no other guests. Meaning all our excursions and services were personalized. Mazin, the owner, is pretty well equipped with the equipments & resources required to operate as a resort level excursions & water sports company. The prices are below the market prices but you get the experience the same stuff or even better if you are lucky enough as we were. We stayed at Noovilu Suites for 4 nights and tried to incorporate as many activities that we could, but there was not enough time. A stay of at least 6-7 days is ideal if you are looking for a relaxed stay with a couple of activities in a day. The meals were pretty basic but delightful. In a gist, the term guest house is properly defined at Noovilu Suites owing to their services offered not as a guest, but rather a family member.

I am so happy I chose to stay on a local island and experience the real Maldivian culture, and no place can show you that better than Noovilu. They offer top-notch hospitality at an affordable price. The staff is so friendly and with only a few rooms, you get to know the other guests and there is a true family vibe. It was a very special experience. The excursions are fantastic, and as someone who is not comfortable in the ocean, their guides made sure I felt comfortable and swam with me the whole way. I never in a million years thought I would swim with whale sharks, or do a night snorkel, or have the kind of underwater experiences they made possible. I also loved being on a local island to see what life is really like in this country. It is a beautiful place full of beautiful people and I will never forget their kindness. Thank you Noovilu!

A real feel of maldivian life. With Noovilu you can see exactly how people live on the island. Mazin and the guys took care of us. We took 2 trips: deserted island and swimming with whale sharks and both were beyond expectations!! In the first one, they caught fresh fish from the ocean and cooked it for us. Can’t describe the island beauty, you have to see it for yourself! The second experience was unforgetable and beyond words! Just a quick tip from me: you can invest in a gopro. It would be a nice touch for the guests for snorkeling or whale shark trips so they can remember even more the feeling they had. Regarding the noovilu villa, it was really amazing in design and architecture, beds were comfy enough and the outside shower was a nice touch. A few cons, only from an european perspective and because I tend to be picky, but this shouldn’t bother anybody coming here if they set their expectations correctly: a bit of dust on the shelves, toilet seat could have been a bit cleaner, wi-fi was really slow.
