If you are looking for a low-budget vacation in the Maldives, then I would suggest to check out some good Hulhumale guest houses in front of the beach. There are good number of low-budget hotels at Hulhumale’ which is an island connected to the Airport Island Hulhule’. Guest Houses in Hulhumale’ are getting very popular these days, more and more tourists are opting for this.
Vacations in Maldives resorts are a costly affair, but definitely would be a lifetime experience. Most of the resorts in the Maldives are high-end, top brands and unique. The beaches are the best, standards are the highest and they make sure that you are happy.
Guest Houses in Maldives Islands
Guest houses are getting very popular these days, more and more tourists are traveling because guest houses are affordable compared to the resorts, but you cannot compare the luxury and facilities of a resort in Maldives
Guest Houses Vs Resorts in Maldives
Guest houses are mostly in inhabited islands. You will have the advantage of meeting the local residents. In case of resorts, you are in a private island where you will not see any local residents.
You are free to move around the island, get into some local restaurants, taste some traditional local cuisines. In case of resort, you have access only to the resort restaurants.
In an inhabited island, you need to be taking care of yourself when you are moving around, safety is not a concern when you are in a resort island. Moreover Maldives is a safe place for tourists, nothing much to worry.
You can enjoy water sports, snorkeling, scuba diving in both the cases. There would be operators who would take care of this. You can check with your guest house about water sports.
You do not have access to alcohol on an inhabited island, you will have to go to a resort nearby where you can have some drinks.
Cost of staying in a Guest house would be very less compared to any resort in the Maldives. Guest houses in the Maldives have good standards and we see a lot of tourists coming and staying long in Guest houses.
