Nested within the quiet sun-heated sands of local islands are the most “exotic” experiences Maldives can offer for its visitors; the Guesthouses. They are quickly gaining popularity around the world for their unique style and services. Each guest house is craftily designed and decorated by locals meeting the standards of comfort and hospitality Maldives is reputed for. Some of the guest houses are offering services to guests that closely compete with the high-end luxuries of the resorts. The guest houses are designed to offer the best of both worlds; experience the exotic island life while enjoying the comfort and luxury of a hotel.
