Introduction: Thulhagiri is situated in North Male’ atoll approximately 13 km from the airport and takes only 25 minutes by speed boat from Male’ international airport. Thulhagiri offers the perfect balance of an unspoiled tropical island with all the comforts.
Above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.
Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.
My Arrival Experience: Friendly airport representative followed by a quite uncomfortable boat ride to the island. Getting a new boat might be a good idea.
What I Loved: The short distance to Malé International Airport.
What About the Food: I didn’t eat here. A very disappointing dinner buffet where I didn’t find a single thing that looked nice.
What About the Service: Some of the staff are excellent, trained and friendly, while others need a lot of training. At check-in, it felt like it was the guys first day working at a hotel.
What About My Room: Quite acceptable for the rates they charge on this island. My room had a freestanding bathtub as the highlight. The bed was a bit hard, but overall an acceptable room.
What’s unique: Probably the cheapest resort in the Maldives with a freestanding bathtub.
Number of Rooms: 89.
Type of Property: Resort.
Facilities: Pool, gym and spa.
Complimentary Internet: Yes worked in the room, but slow.
My Overall Impression: Good experience. In the Maldives, you pretty much get what you pay. If you just want to have a stunning beach and just a comfortable room, Thulhagiri might be the best option for the price. However, if you need great service, stunning villas and good food, you will have to look at other options. In The Maldives, there is something for everyone.
