We were staying in Koimala for three days. This is the best place to stay on Maamigili. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is very friendly and ready to help. For example they helped us to book air tickets for our local flight, moreover they organised trips to nearby islands. Breakfasts and dinners there were extremely tasty 😋. The next time will stay there 👍

We first visited the Maldives five years ago, we chose a beautiful all-inclusive resort - water villas, we took several snorkeling trips. We thought it was the maximum that the Maldives has to offer and that we will not return here because we like to discover new places. Due to limited travel options this year, the choice again fell on the Maldives - Hotel Koimala on the local island of Maamigili. we couldn't have made a better decision. The hotel staff was excellent, provided us with everything - transfer to the island, snorkeling trips, PCR test before departure ... Every day the hotel manager wondered what day we had and how satisfied we were with the trips. Ripon prepared food for us, fulfilling our wishes from morning to evening. Equally handy was the captain of our ship, he always took us safely to the port - even in strong waves during an unexpected change in weather. The underwater world was beautiful - corals, manta rays, sharks, eagle rays, turtles, lots of fish and small fish ... On the island of Maamigili we experienced the real Maldives and thanks to the staff of Hotel Koimala we will definitely return here. You are amazing!

We had been stayed at koimala in nearly for a weeks. We had a great time with a amazing service during our stay. We asked for full bord; had a great food! Ribon were taking care of us got fresh grilled fish and spoiled us every day. Everything was "possible " with a management ; what ever we asked regarding food ,tour,help's for covid test or arrangement for our wedding or transfer.The answer always; " it's possible we would like you to be happy "😍 We were like being in the parade's.   the inspiration of the place and the good offer that we got we decided to make our marriage with Koimala included romantic dinner on the beach. Are wedding on the beach was amazing nicely arranged; easy going and romantic as we wished to have . They had a beach part that they keeping clean and if you lucky like we you have a chance to see baby shark or even manta! We did almost all the tours that had offered; whale shark,manta watching,  picnic island, sand bank, snorkeling night fishing. unfortunately where ever daily somebody not cleaning the beach the tidle and waves bringing the plastic everywhere. So that you can see.. As a tour guide around the world still this is a once in the life time experience that a much cheaper way with a very high personal service tailored to your wish you can get in koimala. Compering with a luxury resort service  where we were I could describe; at the resort we were a room number; less than 6.pax even the free tour wasn't possible Hear at Koimala in; we were a person and felt like a family hospitality and had a luxury even 2 of us going for a tour being alone and get a great services. Negative? The watter in the shower has a bad smell unfortunately everywhere in Maamigili . Nothing else. You wear mask on the street & shops that's it. Clean and far away hassle of the covid life that anywhere in Europe at the moment. In  the village people nice smiles and say hello. We try to suit our self to the fact that they religous muslims so dressed modesty 😉 Highly can recommend to those who are not looking for a luxury place to sleep during they vacation but love to know people feel the local life and flexible. It's a great choice compering the money and what you get for it. Shortly; Lovely kind people great service & good location in al meaning. 😍 Ps..my husband went to the barber before the wedding. He was surprisle great even made a better cut than at home where we go 😍highly can recommend him.😉

My first experience in the maldives was wonderful. I spent a fantastic week with my girlfriend. We stayed at the koimala guesthouse. The gh is located in Maamigili island and this gives you the opportunity to live in contact with the local people and you can understand the true essence of the trip. At koimala you don't find the "staff", you find a family. I have rarely had the complete travel experience as in my stay at koimala. No guys, koimala it's not a resort. If you want the fake and "plastic" resort holiday then koimala is not for you. At koimala everything is simple and therefore made with heart and passion. Riffath is a perfect guesthouse manager, Ripon will try to satisfy all your requests and Ali with the boat crew will bring you to see whale sharks, turtles, manta rays and atolls in the middle of the ocean. Finally, they made my girlfriend's birthday unforgettable by organizing an incredible dinner on the beach and a surprise inside the hotel. The food is excellent: for a week I dined with fresh fish. What can I tell you: if you really want to live the Maldives and make your experience unforgettable then there is only one word: koimala. See you next year !!!!!
