Superb place for vacation at Maldives”

Zest Cabana are perfect in combination of value, facility and comfort. We stay for 5D 4N at very clean and comfortable room, including refrigerator, hair dryer, hot water, free Snorkling equipment and delicious breakfast, they even provide universal electricity port and they have kitchen that any guest could use. They also have awesome packages like lunch at sandbank, diving at turtle and shark point, picnic to inhabitant island and excursion for many private resorts. Me and my wife are being welcome by cool towels and welcome drink like you would get at private resort. Our host Shareef and his two staffs are so helpful and friendly. We have visited to amazing sandbank and Snorkling at very beautiful reef point with Shareef as our guide himself. He is so nice to talk to and would give you advice for your perfect vacation. Thank you for our perfect holiday. Definitely would stay at Zest Cabana everytime I'm on Maafushi.

Great place even if you are travelling with kids”

We stayed from 10th March to 14th March 2018 @ Zest Cabana. It was really a good stay and it was like home away from home! Staff won't interfere in any of your activities within the space and in fact one can use the kitchen and cook food for kids or oneself if need be! They used to clean the room daily and the whole place was quite neat and clean all the time. Kiddoo is always available if you need anything and read to help, he in fact, he let me drive his bike too on the beach !! :-) Location is just perfect, the moment you come out of the place and look at the back you have the entire Ocean to look at!! We enjoyed our morning tea and coffee there !! Walkable distance from Bikini Beach (in fact the entire Maafushi can be covered in 30 min. walk) I would surely recommend this place to anyone coming to Maafushi!

Sheriff is a good host. We were greeted with cold towel and fruit juice, just like at resorts We didn't stay at zest cabana but the siesta nearby instead (i guess zest cabana ran out of room) and the rooms are very new, spotless clean and spacious. Breakfast is good with both western and maldivian styles (i love the mas huni!)

Absolutely great service and very accomodating staff. We did our activities through them and it was superb as manager Sheriff is really helpful willing to go and beyond on what other things you want to see in the island or in the tour. I really love the fact that Maldives has such a great marine life and aside from the island offers, staff on the hotel are really nice! Had a great and clean room and always fixed our bed.. On the food part, I really like the tuna fish with coconut..:) Will recommend this place and would like to come back again on Maldives and revisit this hotel again..:) they treat you not just a guest, as a family as well! Location is close by the local Beach and few minutes away from the bikini beach..

I Call Zest Cabana as Orange-Yellow Inn. it is located nearby the beach. They have limited rooms to offer but dont worry they would help and accomodate your needs. They have really nice staffs, Good Breakfast and Nice Excurssion. if you want to do some watersports, they would offer you affordable rate. 25 USD/Person for 3 Snorkeling Points and you could visit the magnificient local Island Guraidhoo and Tiny sandbanks. I recommend you to stay and enjoy the experience wiith them...

Nice cozy hotel on the other side of Maafushi. A few minutes walk from the main habour, pass by the football field and then you will see this little gem. It blends in really well with the local, much quieter and have got more local ambiance. The staffs are super friendly, nice welcome drink and super neat room with all the amenities. Try to walk around the beach in front of the hotel, you may find some baby sharks passing by :)

When we arrived at Maafushi island, we had little difficulty reaching the location of this hotel because the location of this hotel is far from where the ferry docked. The hotel is small but comfortable enough, the staffs were friendly and helpful enough especially KIDDO. They offer a good breakfast and affordable tour packages.
