The place is really convenient if you have a flight in the middle of the night like I did. Naasih picked me up on time from the airport and was really friendly, recommending places for diving etc. The room was as described and the hotel even served late breakfast outside the normal hours when I didn't wake up on time and let me check out late. The only down side was that the wifi didn't work.
Thank you so much Christine for staying with us. We apologize for the inconvenience due to wifi connection. We usually have wifi coverage in Guest Rooms, corridor, lobby & restaurant. Unfortunately we were doing an upgrade work on our network last two days. But now it has been fixed & guests can get High Speed wifi internet & access to Movie Library using wifi connection.
Once again, thank you so much for choosing UI Hotels :)
It's exactly as how it's been described in "About This Listing ".
It was easy to reach there, the place is clean, breakfast is okay, and the most important thing is the friendly staff, they are just amazing, happy to help you and serve you with a big smile!
Just don't don't forget to try there "Whole Grilled Fish", it's really good!
Nasih was out of the country when I was there. His staff were friendly and I got moved to Relax Hotel which is right in front of the beach. I got a free upgrade from a single bed to a double. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was alright. It's conveniently close to the ferry terminal to Male.
I didn't meet Nasih but his staff was accommodating and trusting.
I had a very pleasant stay at the UI Hotel. Nasih and his staff were remarkably gracious and helpful, and looked out for my safety, since I was traveling alone.
The Room - I was blessed with a surprise upgrade to a suite room upon my arrival. (I can only hope that similar surprises are in store upon my return. *smile*) The suite was very clean and spacious, towels were provided, and the A/C was cold.
The Food - The breakfast included at the hotel was just OK. The rest of the food left much to be desired. I'd advise patronizing the other restaurants available in the neighborhood for lunches and dinners.
The Location - UI is located in Hulhumale, which is a manmade extension of the same island on which the airport is located. It's a brief 10 minute ride from the airport, and the transfer was only $15 round trip. Hulhumale is primarily inhabited with native Maldivian people, so you will be walking the streets and eating with the locals. This is a developing area, and there are a dozens of construction projects going on, so be prepared to see plenty of construction workers, construction sites, and construction debris. There are several convenience stores in the area where you can buy drinks, snacks, and hygiene/household items.
The Beach - The beach that is adjacent to the hotel was the most disappointing aspect of the stay. The beach was less than a 2 minute walk from the hotel; however, it was tragically filthy. The beachfront was abundantly littered with trash and garbage of every variety, and much of it was floating in the water. I put my feet in the water, but I did not want to get it. Very disappointing for a beach bum like myself. I was looking forward to spending plenty of time laying out on that beach, so that was a HUGE let-down. (I'm aware that this is outside of UI's control, but it is still necessary to mention, because proximity to the beach is advertised as a benefit to staying here.) If you're wanting to spend a significant amount of time on the beach, but are on a budget, I highly recommend staying in this area, and then simply paying for day passes to resorts on other islands, which start at $99 USD and go up from there depending on the resort you select, but it is still drastically less expensive than paying the high price of staying overnight at those resorts.
Transportation - UI is located very close to the bus stop. Buses can take you to the airport, or to the ferry terminal to Male City, for less than $1 USD. The ferry to Male City is also less than $1 USD, and runs quite frequently, both day and night. From the arrival terminal in Male City, you'd walk down to the other ferry terminal to board ferries that will take you to other islands and resorts.
Thank you so much Patricka. We hope the beach issue will solve soon as we are getting a private beach withing few weeks time as per government authorities. I hope you enjoyed the trips and our team hospitality. Once our new restaurant open in the next month, we will have a new menu. Hope to see you again.
nice and clean room. (small window) pleased free upgrading. free breakfast. the exact name on billboard is UI inn, not UI hotel.

Hello, My name is Naasih from beautiful Maldive Islands. Hotelier as profession. I love traveling, blogging, photography, meet people and make friends etc :)
My boutique style hotel near Airport and beach of Hulhumale island is just the perfect gateway for your budget Holiday in the Maldives. Our young team is dedicated for all your needs. We offer exciting tours like island picnic, diving, seaplane tours, submarine dive, surfing, fishing, BBQ, adventure trips etc.
I do enjoy travelling for the experience of knowing 'what else is out there'. Usually I travel with my brother or with friends. I've been to Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Thailand, China, Macau, Hongkong & almost all the atolls of the Maldives. I've good knowledge about Maldives History, culture and lifestyle. My next trip is to Dubai & Singapore.
I love driving, riding, swimming, diving, sunset photography & I'm addicted to coffee. Now the professional meetings has been changed to coffee tables. Probably my coffee shop (U-coffee) is the best choice in Hulhumale Island. Quiet environment with wide range of coffee, soft drinks, energy drinks, fresh juices, light & set-meals.
Take my bike & bicycle for free of charge to explore Hulhumale Island. If you are traveling with a group, my car and van is also available.
I look forward to meet you. Cheers :)
