      A very nice and memorable place to stay in Hulhumale”

      My partner(June) and i(Stanley) wanted to take 2 days in a city of Male and it was our first time coming to the Maldives. Were very unsure of how Male city and Hulhumale would work. But would like to take some time to write a review for Ripple Beach Inn. Upon our arrival, we totally forgot about emailing them about needing an airport transfer which resulted in me sending an email 4 hours prior to my flight, not knowing whether they would attend to it. When we arrived in the airport, there were many inns/resorts picking up people, and we were actually collected from the staff from Ripple Beach Inn. Thumbs up to the staff Joy who spoke in fluent english and told us that he received our email and was ready to pick us up here. So this being our first time in Maldives, we would choose to stay here again because Hulhumale is only an 15minute drive away from the airport instead of taking a ferry to Male city which sometimes the schedule might be delayed and alot of shuttling to do. Hulhumale is a better alternative if you want to stay without shuttling around too much. We stayed 2 days in Ripple Beach Inn and we planned a day out on our next day, which we wanted to try flyboarding. Flyboarding is very rare in Male at the moment, some resorts do it, but not everywhere. With the period being the Ramadan, some people were not operating as well. We state our request, and they immediately contacted the local water sports agent Llyas who helped us arranged to do flyboarding! Llyas was very nice and we also went for a snorkeling and dolphin cruise with him in a private boat because it was just the 2 of us. Took alot of very nice photos and the flyboarding was unforgettable. The night came and the owner of Ripple Beach Inn, Naseer actually invited both me and my partner to join him for dinner at the other Inn which he had, called Vista Beach. We wanna thanks Naseer for the dinner treat and also sharing with us about how Hulhumale was developing and the city. We didn't knew tha

      Close to the airport

      Our flight arrived at Male Airport at midnight, so we decided to find a hotel near the airport. Ripple Beach Inn is a new hotel, which is around 10 minutes away from the airport by car. The hotel is a home stay style one. Although it is not very big, the decoration is brand new and we feel very comfortable and the breakfast is good. The hotel can provide free transfer service from the airport to the hotel and free wifi at the first floor and free adapter. In particular, the boss and the staffs of the hotel were quite warm. They actively coordinated our following hotel and arranged one staff to accompany us to visit Male Island when they knew that we wanted to visit Male at the second day. And the boss paid one-way speed boat tickets for us and also arranged to bring our luggage to the airport. In all, Ripple Beach Inn gave us good impression during our travel in Maldives. We appreciate for their good service and we would like to recommend it to you. 因为我们的航班半夜才抵达马累机场,所以就决定找个离机场比较近的酒店。Ripple Beach Inn是一家新开业的酒店,离机场大概10分钟的车程,酒店属于民宿式的酒店,虽然整体面积不大,但是装修都是全新的,房间可能比较小,整体感觉还是很温馨,酒店的早餐也不错。Ripple Beach Inn提供免费的机场接送服务,酒店一层有免费的WiFi,也提供电源转换器。特别值得一提就是,Ripple Beach Inn的老板人特别热情,主动帮我们协调之后我们需要入住的酒店,在聊天过程中,得知我们想利用一些时间去马累市区参观,他就安排的服务生带我们逛马累,同时免费送我们去马累市区,等我们返回机场岛之后,又安排服务生帮我们把行李从酒店送到机场。Ripple Beach Inn给我们在马尔代夫的行程中,留下了深刻的印象,感谢Ripple Beach Inn提供的良好服务,值得给大家推荐!

      Home is Where Your Heart Is”

      The staff and manager at the Ripple Beach Inn were more than worth the price of admission. They were so helpful and by the time our 16 nights were over, they all seemed like family. The hotel was literally a stone\s throw away from the beach. However, this beach does not allow for bikini swim wear. If you are planning on sun-tanning you will have to walk about 20 minutes south to the tourist beach. We were offered a bigger room when we first arrived but after a couple of days we realized that the room we had was good enough (and with a great view of the beach and sunrises every morning). We were also within easy walking distance of the business centre of Hulhumale and the airport shuttle bus and thus the ferry to Male City and the speed boats to all the resorts. In short I would recommend the Ripple Beach Inn. It wasn't love at first sight but by the end of our stay, it was tough to leave such a great group of people.

      Returning to a Home away from Home”

      Location, Friendly Staff, Good Customer Service

      I stayed at Ripple Beach Inn a year ago, and returned again for two separate day stays in Nov 2015. We were delighted to again meet the owner, Mr. Naseer who personally picked us up from the airport on arrival. Mr. Naseer is a great conversationalist and was very prompt in replying to my email enquiries. He kindly reduced the airport transfer fee for us upon realising that we were staying in Ripple Beach as a transit hotel at the start and end of our Maldives trip. Ripple Beach has changed for the better since our last visit. An additional floor was added with a rooftop balcony. The staff in the hotel are every ready and smiling to assist with luggage and whatever else one may need.We stayed in a normal room on the second floor on our first day as the hotel was fully booked by a party of Singaporeans who were there for a week or so. On our return to Hulhumale, we were kindly upgraded for no additional charge to the brand new penthouse room on the top floor - a luxurious treat which we really enjoyed. It is a class above the normal rooms with plenty of space to stretch out and relax. There is some minor construction work going on at the lower levels, but it was not significant enough to impact our stay. Mr. Naseer explained to us that they are renovating the single ground floor room with additional facilities to ensure that it is a fully equipped guest room. He also showed us how they newly installed lights on the walkways to brighten up the dark floor corridors. Ripple Beach Inn is not yet the best boutique hotel in the area. Truth be told, it is a work in progress, and the rooms are currently and constantly undergoing improvement. However, the rates are very reasonable, the management takes customer feedback extremely seriously and is very responsive to requests. I felt comfortable enough to return to stay there not once but twice, and that ranks it a 5 in my book. Keep up the good work!

The staff namely Joy, Habib, Ibrahim, Kabir and Shuhu (who responded to my email quickly), are all so helpful, friendly, ready to serve, attentive and willing to assist everytime I have some queries and make my stay enjoyable in every way, with particular thanks to Joy for a great customer care service. There are water sport centres nearby where you can have water sports like canoe, jet ski, parasailing, banana boating etc. I did snorkelling with Secret Paradise which is a short distance away from the guesthouse, Ruth, the sales director is very helpful to assist in every way.The ferry terminal to Male is on the same stretch of road as Secret Paradise. Overall Ripple Beach Inn is central to everything including minimart, eateries and souvenir shops as well as the airport pickup bus services right behind the guesthouse. I also did jet ski with Beach Club to two snorkelling points and sandbank which were fantastic. I would definitely use this location and looking to go back to this guesthouse for my next visit. Overall a 10 out of 10. Thank you very much Ripple Beach, I truly enjoyed my stay.

      Great family hotel in the center of airport island”

      Familiar atmosphere, great staff, nice standard

      I loved my stay in Ripple Inn Hotel! I have to admit that I loved this hotel and great family atmosphere. Later I even regreted that I was going to Mafushi as I could stay on this airport island as it was nice and lovely and much more convenient in terms of shops, ATMs, banks, bars and general conditions than Mafushi. It was also possible to purchase some trips from Ripple Inn that is why next time I will stay there for all the holidays. It is in the center of the airport island, far from any airport noise, nice standard and lovely atmosphere. Staff really nice and flexible, I was not a problem for them to make me some breakfast later, when I overslept and even once bring it to my room for free. So nice nad helpful people. I loved this family and staying there was feeling to be part of them. They are extremely honest and even send me the picture of my new shoes that I left there asking if I want them to send them to me! (Luckily my friends passing the island on the way back took it for me to Poland, where I live). Comming back to important facts: Just behind the shop there is a great air-conditioned grocery shop where you can pay safely with any credit card, lots of bar, safe area. ATM is just opposite, bank too. Some shops and hair dresser nearby. Loved these people, you can go to any bar for tuna steak burger for 1 or 2 USD and nobody looks at you even though you still look different then all of them. To go to Male city you can walk few minutes to extremely cheap ferry (o3 USD which goes every 15 minutes until 2 am to start anain after 5 am. If you wish, you can also take a bus to go to the port or to reback to the airport from central bus stop just behind the hotel. Beach is also nice but do NOT expect Maldivian beach there- to have such you need to go to resort.

      Excellent location”

      Ripple Beach Inn. An outstanding holiday was made possible by selecting this hotel situated near to Male’s International Airport. We arrived and we greeted by the hotel’s courier service, which quickly took us to the Ripple Beach Inn. The location is just outstanding for transportation and its links to the nearby ferry station, which can take you to most of the others islands. Outside the hotel is a long, quiet and clean white sandy beach. The warm seawater is a brilliant translucent Cambridge blue with an Oxford blue sky which merge on the unbroken horizon. We found the hotel extremely welcoming, with staff making our stay a most enjoyable time. They provided us with details of outstanding sporting activities on the nearby islands, we were provided with accurate and clear information about each of the islands and selected many of these during our stay. The hotel is clean, quiet and run about helpful staff, they will make you stay well worth visiting. For value for money is an excellent opportunity to visit and to review all the islands at very little expense.

      Great transit hotel”

      Clean, friendly staff and great location

      My fiance and I were really grateful to the staff at Ripple Beach Inn, not only were they attentive, they were extremely helpful! We were staying only for one night at Ripple Beach Inn, conveniently located right in front of the beach, because we were on transit, so we hadn't done any research on the place or what there was to do on Hulhumale. The staff gave us directions, helped us break our large notes and sent us on our way to the ferry terminal to head to the more exciting Male City. They had even given us good recommendations on where to eat there. The room itself was small, but clean, very comfortable and even came with a balcony overlooking the beach. It was an extremely pleasant stay! Our only grouse was the neighbour. Much like any developing country, it's still in the midst of construction, and there are a lot of areas that are littered with construction rubble. Not a very pleasant sight. But still, can't be helped, and we enjoyed ourselves! Much thanks to the staff of Ripple Beach Inn!

      Amazing hospitality”

      The Inn picked us up promptly from the airport with their clean and safe van. Upon arrival they greeted us with a smile and check-in was amazing. Room was clean and comfortable. Beach across hotel.

      Upon arrival in Male we were whisked away in their van, which is clean and safe. Drive to the Inn was a 10mins-15mins journey. The staff was very friendly and checked us in promptly. Also the receptionist asked which hotel we will be going to after this (we stayed here only for the night as our boat to the next resort was the next day) and he called our resort to advise our arrival. That was a great initiative by the receptionist. The clean bedroom was cosy with beach view and the bed comfortable (room 201). Room is equipped with the necessities e.g air conditioning, hot water shower, wifi, etc. The next day our breakfast was nice and simple, and we are always greeted with a smile. Surrounding area is quiet and shops are around the area. Very safe neighbourhood. We manage to speak to the owner, a very friendly chap. They are expending (more rooms being made). Highly recommend this hotel for those who are keen to visit Maldives. Keep up the good work Ripple Beach Inn!

      Our stay”

      All the staffs here are very nice, It has a beach view & the room we stayed fits family of 4

      knowing ripple beach is a 3 star hotel, we dont expect much. upon our arrival at the airport, we were greeted by the driver who pick us up, a very nice person. He took us to our accomodation. There, the staff warmly greeted us, after getting our keys, they help to carry our luggage to our rooms. The next day, the staff greeted us and prepared our breakfast. Breakfast is normal but the service was excellent. Then came the owner of the hotel, he arrange for us activities that we wanted. He sure can recommend activities that best suit our needs. After knowing the owner closer, he share his maldivian experience, we talked about stars, moon, the glowing beach. It was very warm. In fact all of the staffs were very nice n warm. They even played around with my daughter and my son knowing my son always cry which i find it rare and u cant find it on any 5 star hotel. It is really genuine of them. They are really hospitable. Our rooms are also clean. When we dont get signal for our tv and the air con is switched off and we cant turn on(due to me switch off cos its cold), straight away they came up and help to fix. Overall to cut it short, even though it is a 3 star hotel, the service given to us was like a 5 star. And like i said, rooms were clean, we got a beach view. Everything was perfect. The best was the staff and owner here all were hospitable, treating us like their own family. We really have a heavy heart on our last day leaving this ripple beach inn. We would definitely come back. :)

      location is right on the beach, friendly staff and excellent customer services

      We stayed at Ripple beach hotel for one night during our transit to the island. Prior to arrival I established contact with Hotel owner Mr Naseer on email and found him very cooperative and responsive. He arranged our airport transfer on a reasonable price. Although I booked their deluxe room but we were upgraded free to sea view super deluxe room which had a lovely view of the beach. We found their guy Joy very cooperative and helpful. He gave us all the information to get ferry from male on the next day and took good care of us. He also went with us to drop us at the ferry terminal and assisted us in luggage transfer. Apart from him I found all other staff very nice and friendly. Breakfast was also good and on our request Joy arranged one local breakfast specially from outside which was great. Mr Naseer also showed us 3 new rooms which are on the final stages of completion. These new rooms have different design from the existing ones and have some added features like Jacuzzi tub and small kitchen area. Overall we enjoyed our stay and the hospitality of their staff. The location is also good as it is right in front of beach. Highly recommended for the transit or even for the longer stay. Thanks Mr Naseer, Joy and all the staff for taking good care of us.

      great place to stay near Airport”

      Clean Rooms, Friendly Staff, Location

      We enjoyed our stay at Ripple Beach Inn. The view from our room (which is the public beach) is very beautiful. Feels like you are just beside the beach. The room is clean, good condition, and simple, bed is comfortable, and free Wi-Fi is available. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food is average. The location is quiet and accessible. Just cross the street and you'll be at the beach, walk a little more and you'll get to the main road where banks, mini marts, restaurants, etc. are located. The only problem we encountered was the long wait at the airport. When we arrived, there was no sign who will pick us up so we had to go to the Airport Helpdesk who helped call the hotel. We waited for about 20-30 mins for the hotel rep to meet us then we waited another 1 hour plus for the transport service to arrive. We were very tired already because it was already close to midnight. But the transfer from hotel to airport was quick. It is only a transit hotel for us before moving to a resort so we only stayed for 2 nights. I heard they can also arrange activities like Island hopping, snorkeling, etc. Overall, it is a great place to stay.

      Staff and location

      We spent one night at Ripple Beach on our way to Rasdhoo Island (which is amazing). We arrived during worship time on a Friday which also happened to be lunch time which was a problem because all restaurants were closed. My fiancé was pregnant so eating was rather important. The staff were amazing and were able to rustle us up some lunch which was very much appreciated. The location of this hotel is great, across the road from the beach (they have sun beds) and a short ride from the airport. We did not arrange an airport pickup, assuming getting a taxi from the airport would be easy but again, during worship time on a Friday, there was not a single taxi at the airport. The information desk at the airport rang Ripple Beach Inn for us and they quickly picked us up. The service at this hotel is exceptional and I recommend it.

      We booked a room at Ripples Beach Inn for transit the night before heading to our resort island since our flight reach Male late at night. Due to a delayed landing at Male, no one was there to greet us at arrival. We head to information counter and call the Inn, and they arrive in 5 minutes. So keep their number ready if you book with them. The room was in good size, comfortable double bed, small 2.5 feet by 5 feet balcony, good size bathroom, free wifi, and a nice view. Breakfast was simple eggs and toast, but their staff are nice and warm. Overall, small hotel but good transit point and friendly services that value for money.

      The beautiful beach - the crystal clear water - the friendly staff

      My trip started with troubles all over - problems with my ticket, nearly missed my flight, ATM card not working, no transfer organised… … however when Naseer picked me up at the airport everything changed. A hotel can be nice, spacious, with modern furniture, what counts however is the feeling you get and the story a place is telling. The whole team at the Ripple Beach Inn is doing an amazingly good job. Seemed as they could read every wish I had and everything I needed directly from my face. The hotel itself is quite small and run very familiar. My room was not ready, due to the fact that I was arriving very early, Naseer just organised me a nice sunbed on the beach which was exactly what I was looking for. The beach is just amazing with the clear blue/turquoise water. I was there just for a short time, but I enjoyed every minute of it. I will definitely be back soon! Thanks again to Madu, the lovely young receptionist lady, Naseer and the rest of the team! You are all doing a great job! Keep on rocking!

      Great hotel for a budget Maldives Holiday”

      Close to ferry terminal, shops, airport

      Inns at Hulhumale typically are used for transit purpose due to it's proximity to the airport. However, many travellers are missing out the offerings of the island in their rush to the resorts. We had a 3 night stay at Ripple Beach Inn and was able to go to Male City, snorkelling trips and relax at the beach just in front of the hotel. Enjoying the island without having to pay crazy money at the resorts. Spoke to the owner of the hotel and they will be offering activity packages soon. For the budget travellers or divers, it will be a great place to stay without paying too much at the resort islands. The only disadvantage will be the alcohol ban on the island if you intend to do some hard partying then this place may not be suitable.

      New and friendly hotel”

      New and clean

      Most of the Island resorts are not providing speed boat or sea plane survive during the night time. Therefore, the tourists have to find a place stay in the capital or the surround. My husband and I did that. I bet that most of the visitors not spending too much time on searching a place for that night. If so, I would highly recommend people to take this as a opinion to minimize your time on searching. We arrived Male international airport at 10:30 p.m.. Once we stepped out the airport, a boy held a board with my name on it. He helped us to catch an Airport Express van (We had to wait for around 15 mins for this van). After 10 mins traveling, we arrived and did the check-in. We had a welcome drink and received a very warming greeting from the hotel owner and his family. We stayed in a superior room which had a great sea-view. Facilities in room were new and very clean. But I would suggest to add something to kill the mosquito because I got bitten. The next day, we had a free great breakfast before we departed to the island resort, awesome!Overall, it is worth to stay in this hotel.

      Clean room, safe & near the beach!

      It was our first trip to Maldives. With no regrets, would highly recommended Ripple Beach Inn Hotel for tourists who will be looking for airport hotel transfer. Journey from the airport to Ripple is only 10-15 mins drive. The driver who attended to us is helpful and friendly. Throughout the time, he would send us ard with just a minimal fee of USD30. Sea is crystal blue covered with white sandy beaches. One of the paradise in Maldives. From the hotel to the ferry terminal is only 15 mins walk. Highly recommended from a short stay near hotel or for transit.
