Top 10 Best Kaafu Atoll Hotels 2019

Most Popular Resorts close to Male Airport

Updated April, 2019

The North and South Male Atolls together with the Gaafaru atoll and Kaashidhoo island forming Kaafu Atoll, the home of the best and most popular hotels in the country, and all the resorts accessible by speedboat from Male airport. South Male Atoll is also home to Maafushi, the uncrowned capital of budget tourism and where dozens of guest houses, economy hotels, dive operators and even a beach for foreigners are now located.

Both atolls have a lot of natural pluses: excellent diving sites that feed both sides of Vaadhoo Kandu, the canal that passes between the atolls of North and South Male, while the atoll of Gaafaru Falhu Atoll, north of North Male Atoll, has at least three points of rack-diving. Some of the best surf spots in the Maldives are also located in the North Male Atoll, where a small seasonal surfers community thrives on the wave, and the beaches are excellent almost everywhere.

Below are the top 10 best hotels in Kaafu Atoll.

In the Maldives there is no other such resort, and only a little in the world, I think, is better than Gili Lankanfushi.

4. One & Only Reethi Rah

One & Only Reethi Rah

Before stay there, Reethi Rah for the island resort seems a bit conservative. Smooth, majestic, but perhaps lacking some details of the bounty in Maldives rural style (call it what you like) that are in fashion today. Going ashore, you will realize that refusal to follow a fashion trend is the same point: you simply do not need it when you are the best. Reethi Rah adheres to his own One & Only style. Purposefully not 'trendy', in the development stage to the top level of luxury, specializing in high quality service to its guests, such an experience you would have hard to find somewhere else in the Maldives.
