Ranked #8 of 10 Hotels in Hulhumale
Reviewed 12 April 2012

If like us you arrive in the Maldives too late to go to your actual resort - you'll find yourself looking somewhere to stay the night near the airport. This place fit the bill for us.

Pros:
- Close to airport and efficient free airport transfer on arrival (met by the hotel staff).
- No ferry required as on Hulhumale not Male so easy 10 min drive
- Rooms basic but had A/C and satellite TV
- Had all our seaplane details and dropped us back off at airport following morning all on time and they even helped us check in at the seaplane terminal
- Cheap compared to others we looked at
- Free breakfast

Cons:
- Rooms are pretty basic and small - fine for 1 night for us but luxury this is not
- Area around the hotel still really a building site
- Doors are pretty thin...if you're not getting up early you'd probably be woken by others moving around. Not an issue for us as we were up and heading out to our island by 9.

We choose this hotel because it is near the airport island namely Hulhumale. It is just 10 minutes away from the airport and we don’t have to take the boat transfer to Male since it is 10pm at Male when we arrives Maldives. Just for your information, the city of Maldives is on an island and space are limited so kindly do not expect luxurious space at the hotel which I would able to accept.

Here is my review on Fuana Inn:-
Hotel Environment: Hotel are not luxury but I believe it is just nice for a night transfer while waiting for the next morning transfer to island resort since the internal seaplane transfer do not fly at night. The hotel is near to the airport island and the cost is around $85/night during month of June.

Around the hotel: Nothing much surrounding the hotel except the simple beach in front of the hotel where the beautiful morning at Maldives welcomes us.

Hotel Service & Staff: The service are reasonable but lack of hospitality like we need to wait for breakfast after morning call was make and also people are standing still waiting for tips. We did tips for better service but not all.

Room Comfort: Room is small with basic bathroom and a double bed for us. I love their cable TV where there are many channel but too bad we did not really utilize it because is just a night transfer.

We were disappointed by all employees of this hotel. All of them were missing the basic rules of hospitality culture. We paid two days before via booking.com. We were accommodated, had a shower. After that, phone was ringing, at the same time somebody was louldy knocking on the door. When I opened, one employee ordered me to come down immediatelly, was talking like he wants to move us out. We reached reception and were told our room hasnt been paid. They had all our credit card details, we had to sign anyway at almost midnight. Unfortunatelly his eftpos didnt accept our card which we use all over the world. He sent us to 5 mins walking ATM to withdraw money.
They promised us morning wake up call as we needed to catch a plane to Kuredu Island.No wake up call in the morning! At this stage I was really getting upset. Fortunatelly we set up our own alarm clock. I calmely said to receptionist thank you for wake up call, we didnt get any. No sorry or anything. Just ignored me.
Last surprise was shuttle bus. We were told to wait at reception. Shuttle bus will come for us. After 10 mins waiting another employee took one of our lugagge and without a word. After our questioning him we got to know we were going to a public bus stop to get to the airport. We paid 20 USD for return shuttle to the hotel. One way took around 10 mins.

If you need to stay near the airport whatever you do don't go to Fuana Inn. Amazingly it is in the ghetto of the Maldives. Terribly dirty, unhelpful staff, noisey, just about everything you would not want is at this hotel. Be warned.

Rom: My single room was tiny and overlooking the back yard/city. The bed was good. The AC worked perfectly and was quiet. The room was clean. Wireless Internet access was free, but a little slow.

Hotel: Ok.

Staff: Polite, but I didn’t need anything so I don’t know if they are helpful or not.

Restaurant: Barley café standard. Breakfast was a glass of juice, to pieces of fruit, one fried egg, fore pieces of toast and jam. Only open for breakfast.

Beach: 10 meters to the beach. Free sunbeds. Almost no other people. Shallow water. Dead coral reef, so not much to see.

Area: It’s a local area. Not many tourists. There are some shops, some restaurants and some cafes. There is a diving center, really close. They have daily dive trips whit boat. I paid 100 USD for 2 dives, equipment and free water. There is a ferry to Male (capital). It cost 0.5 USD and was a 15 minutes trip. There is no alcohol on the island.

Total: This is not paradise, but as a solo traveler it was really ok. I paid 75 USD pr. night including breakfast. I’m satisfied :)
