Maldives Guesthouses

The past 10 years of the Maldives has seen rapid growth and change one of which was the opening of inhabited island to tourism as locals gained permission to build their own guesthouses. Travellers no longer have to stay in resorts and remain sepa-rate from the local population, something that kept backpackers away for decades. 

Island hopping by public ferry, speedboat and domestic flights has opened up this in-credible country to visitors on almost all budgets and a whole new side to exploring the country.

From exploring the unique cuisine, languages, arts and geography every island and eve-ry guest house has a flavour of its own.
