Fihalhohi is one of the islands in the South Male Atoll so travel from the airport is relatively quick and easy.
Fihalhohi resort is a budget resort but this doesn't mean it is poor quality. In fact we found it it is paradise to look at when first arriving
Fihalhohi is a simple resort. There is a Palm Groove restaurant, Fisherman’s bar and Coral Cove snack bar. in the main building you will find an indoor games area and a souvenir shop. Other than that there is not much to do. It is a place of tranquility and rest.. with some pretty amazing scuba diving opportunities.
The guest houses are laid out in a a ring around the island so all of us got the required ocean view.
Facilities are not hyper-luxurious, but they are of a high stadard, good value and appropriate for the climate. One visitor complained about the slowness of the internet connection, which only makes you wonder why he was in the Maldives in the first place.
We rented snorkeling equipment from the scuba diving school at a very reasonable rate and jumped into the waters of a stunning coral reef, right there, next to our bungalow. Alongside millions of small tropical fish we saw stingrays, turtles, conga eels and best of all, baby white tip sharks.
The staff deserve special mention because they were all totally brilliant, offering a level of service unknown in western europe. I cannot praise them highly enough.
We read a review before we left that suggested we go for the 'all-inclusive' option. I must say I totally agree that this is the best option. Do NOT go to Filalhohi on a pay as you go basis, because your holiday will most likely turn out to be far more expensive than you thought.
We hope you have found this review of Filalhohi useful.
