The space

The retreat has two rooms (twin sharing or double) for accommodation and a larger room with open spaces that can be used as a workshop or studio - The retreat itself was transformed into a guest house as the family decided to to move to the capital.

The retreat is for hire by Maldives enthusiasts, writers, painters, photographers or other individuals or groups wishing to undertake a creative retreat. It is requested that residents at the retreat share some of their work with the island community and visitors. While allowing for a creative retreat, it is hoped that the residency will allow for a cultural exchange through the artist's interaction with the island community and interested visitors from other island as well as tourists as Kudafari is close two to operating resorts.

If you wish to stay in a peace and quite environment with a local touch - this would be the ideal place.
Have possibilities to visit various local uninhabited and inhabited islands where you get the opportunity to understand and learn about the Maldives.

The price USD 55 is a single room per person per night (excluding the meals)
A double room us for USD 80 (excluding the meals).
The prices includes the 12% tax and 10% Service Charge

For longer stays please contact us for further details - it can be arranged.

Guest access
As the retreat is located in a remote area - for the time being we do not have any airports within the area.
Overnight supply boats goes frequently (3 to 4 times ) a week - but they do not have a schedule. These boats usually departs around 21:00hrs and reach the atoll the next morning around 10:00hrs. By some supply boats you can go directly to our island while the others stops by at a closer destination where you have to take hire a boat to go to the retreat - you can either choose a private boat (which is faster) or a local dhoni (boat). The price depends on where your last stop is.
Also you have the possibility to choose the ferry option which is cheaper (around USD 2) but it takes longer to reach the destination. Please note on Fridays the ferry does not operate.
To give a rough idea - the highest price which is the furthest from our island will cost around USD 120 - it will not go higher than that.

Apart from this we have several local and uninhabited islands where you have the possibility to visit by ferry on a daily basis except for Fridays.

Other things to note
Due to remoteness - minimum 7 days is the ideal number of days for a visit.
Please do note due to the transfer options - it can happen that you would have to spend a nigh or so in the Capital area and the same applies when you return.
If you are lucky we can have avoid this.
