    Trust me this hotel is the best Catch :)”

    Rooms, amenities, food are all perfect! But the main highlight for us was the excellent customer service from all the staff. I would like to give special mention to Ramil and the front desk manager, most specially ROY from the front desk for always extending their suberb hospitality, help and advice as we are not very familiar about things to do and places to visit in Maldives. I would also like to mention Ethel from buffet for always taking care of us like a family, making sure that we are happy. Olly from the restaurant for taking care of us and giving excellent service when we booked the special dinner set up by the beach, it was so romantic. Sudeep for always greeting us with a smile each time, it gives a very positive vibes to everyone. For all the staff facilitating the activities they are all amazing and making sure everyone feels safe and comfortable during the activity. Everyone in this hotel has a good heart :) Thank you all from Arvin and Joanna :)

    Highly recommended hotel to stay at Maafushi”

    One day, if i have a chance to visit Maafushi again, yes of course i will stay at Arena Beach Hotel because all the staff is very kind, especially Gaurav Srivastav, Roy and Monki (i dont sure how to write the name 😁). Well, i will describe reason why i recommend this hotel: During my vacation, i miss flight and actually already book hotel at Arena. And i confirm to Mr. Srivastav to re-schedule to next day, and luckily because of them kindness, i still can re-schedule with no charge 😭 I cant forget for all the kind heart from them, Arena Beach Hotel totally proud to have employees like them. Also Roy and Manki, who stand by around 2 hours with me at harbour, because my speed boat late pick me up, but they dont leave us alone, although its already check out time. Besides that, Arena Beach Hotel is very clean, comfortable, the food is delicious, strategic place. Thank you for unforgotten memory 💚

    Excellent!”

    We stayed 4 nights, our room was very clean and new. Service from all the staff is excellent! Their team work is superb. Especially Olli was so kind to us. Breakfast and dinner buffet was really good. We had a lunch buffet at Centara Ras Fushi and Olhuveli but Arena buffet is better and more delicious than luxury resorts. Also we want to special thank to excursion team. (Participated in a half-day trip and nurse shark snorkeling)They were very friendly and helpful. Thanks to them, we had good memories and experiences. We send some inquires via email before booking, their response was very quick. Staffs at Arena Hotel made our vacation wonderful. We will definitely come back there. Highly recommend!

    Affordable and superb”

    If you are staying at Maafushi then I would strongly recommend Arena Beach Hotel. It is very clean and service is great! The beach is located just in front of the hotel and the view is just stunning! The dinner service is worth it as you get to eat by the beach and for an extra fee, they would set you up with a heart shape plateau with candle lights around it. To top it off, they have a live band playing so you can relax and soak in the atmosphere. Me and my wife really enjoyed the romantic vibes and splendid view. Awesome experience!

    Wonderland! ”

    Very good place with the best buffet ever! We stayed here a full week and the food selection was vast and diverse! We were afraid about eating the same but no no, thanks to the management and chef! Good pool with view, good shows at night and dj and movie time, super friendly staff. Adrian the guy who sells tours is very committed to give you the best packages and manage it all from the start till the end! I’d absolutely come back to MAFUSHI!! Guys don’t miss the scuba diving tour for your sanity! You’re in Maldives, go to see fish and good corals! Also, ask the guys to use drones in each of your activity and pay the extra, extremely worthy!!!!!! Thanks and thanks! The best part is the sense of community the owner has built there. Staff will eat the same food as guest at the end of the long working day AMAZING! Example to the world!

    BEST VALUE ALL ACROSS THE BOARD”

    Best location and views Best food Best excursion packages Best value for money Best of the best staff Thank you to all the staff for taking care of us during our stay (from the waiters Ethel, Brij and the others and the friendly chefs) (the excursion team you guys are awesome! Very professional and friendly) (Mr Paul and Zara for making sure we have everything we need) (And Toriq, the very pleasant staff assigned to our floor and decorated our bed for my bday!) We only planned on staying for 4 days but we liked it so much we extended for 1 more day! We will definitely come back. No need to look elsewhere. Arena Grand is the best place to stay in Maafushi. See you all soon again!

    Probably the best hotel in Maafushi”

    We got a room on the 8th floor, facing the ocean, and the view was really marvelous. The room was very nice and spacious with a balcony and we are of the opinion that it offers the best view of any room on the Island because of its location. The breakfast and dinner spreads were decent, but nothing to write home about. Guests can get snorkel, life jacket and flippers from the hotel free of charge, which is a great convenience. The beach in front of the hotel is nice. We went out looking for a day trip and took a 6-hour trip from iCom which was an excellent deal. If we come to Maafushi again, this is definitely the place we would like to stay at.

    Exceptional Place ”

    If you're planning to stay in Maafushi Island, Arena Beach Hotel is the best option for you. I booked a room with sea view and that made my stay already! It was beautiful and rooms are clean and modern. I was welcomed by Zara and she was very friendly and kind. Staff were great. Not a lot of options though if you are a vegetarian, but other restos in the area will have options for you. Really enjoyed my stay here.

    Arena Beach Hotel is the best value hotel”

    Arena Beach Hotel is the best value hotel you can have when you choose to stay at Maafushi Island. My Fiancé and I really enjoy our stay. Everything is smooth the staff are superb they are the most accommodating staff ever very attentive with all your request and concern they will always ask you if you need anything else or if you want something. we also did our Island hopping to them since most of the tour company around maafushi are the same. The value of money is worth it and our room is really nice we stayed at deluxe room with balcony and city view but it doesn’t look city at all since we have the beach view as well. We will definitely come back to Arena for our next Maldives trip.

    Great value for the cost”

    We debated between an all inclusive resort island and mafushi. After spending the week at Arena we knew we made the right decision to stay on Mafushi island. The hotel was great, snorkeling of the beach was amazing (we saw rays, parrot fish, butterfly fish etc. ). The staff are great (shout out to my boy Saddam for keeping our room clean). Excursions are worth it (sadly we were not able to do the whale shark snorkeling since it was off season).

    Great experience ”

    Arena hotel is wonderful place for a budget traveller. Hotel location is as good as it get. Food is the best you can have in Maafushi. Doesn’t matter which cuisine you like. Staff is very prompt and friendly. View from Infiniti pool or sea facing room are just as beautiful as it can get. Breakfast options are limited. Hotel is very practical. Don’t expect carpets as it’s on beach with sand every where. We already plan to visit Maldives again & Maafushi island & arena hotel will surely be in our list.

    Superb sea view!”

    We have no regret choosing the seaview rooms because the view was very very amazing & superb! We can see the peaceful beach at the balcony. Everything was clean just I think the room space is quite small compared to others. But surely will choose this hotel again! Thank you!

    Nice Experience: Good Location, Friendly staff 10/10”

    The Hotel is located at beach front. The hotel staff is very friendly, I especially want to mention 2 names in their staff for amazing experience, Ms. Victoria at the Tour desk and Brij in their restaurant. There was live music and DJ party during our stay which made our travel memorable. We took the excursion from the tour desk of the hotel and had good experience even they arranged Veg meal for us.

    Great, clean place, becoming a huge tourist complex”

    Hotel(s) are on great location, just a few meters from public beach, which can get a bit crowdy as the whole island comes to swim here. Staff is very friendly, hotel is very clean room service does excelent job. Food buffet is tasty and versatile. We got there at time, they constructed their third building already, so there were some construction noises and smells in our room, but other than that, the room was great, view was also amazing (if we didn't look down on construction site). Arena is becoming an industry, well oiled maschine, so if you're used to touristic centres and getting all your touristic demands met, this is the place for you. However if you're more adventurous type as our family is, you should probably try some local islands for more pristine Maldivian feel.

    Best Hotel in Maafushi”

    There are a lot of good things about this hotel but here is my top 3 reason why we loved our stay at the Arena Beach Hotel. First, all employees are very accommodating and they attend to all our needs. Second, the food is worth every penny. They even have vegan options for me. Lastly, the have a pool in the roofdeck where you can relax after a tiring tour and just be amazed on the beauty of the island.

    Perfect stay in Maafushi”

    One of the most recommended place to stay in Maafushi. We stayed at the new building, very spacious room & Nice balcony view. Staffs are friendly & helpful. The hotel is exactly in front of the beach. The buffet dinner & breakfast was awesome, good food. However the only cons is the wifi which u need to key in password everytime, but the speed is good. Will definetely stay here again in future.
