Transit hotel at Hulhumale in Maldives
We arrived in around 8.30pm local time at Male international airport, Maldives. We collaborate with hotel to pickup us at the airport and straight at the hotel. Its included with our hotel fee. Our transit hotel at Hulhumale in Maldives is Dream Relax Inn. Since we already tired, we straightly going to the bed after checkin. I can say our room is not bad, got air condition, ceiling fan, clean and tidy even got flower on the bed. Like what usually hotel do for honeymoon room. The hotel itself is not bad, if for layover or transit one night, its good because its cheap. But maybe some others review about Dream Relax Inn will help it. Hotel also have pool under construction.
Next morning, after breakfast, also included with our fares, we have a chance to take a walk around. Our breakfast is not that good and also not that bad. Enough for light breakfast. Just noticed our hotel is only less than 20 meters from the beach or 2 minutes walk. Its dark last night so barely cant see anything. The hotel its not right in front of the beach but only one row behind.
The beach and sand is beautiful and since is public, bikini or inappropriate swimming suit is not allowed. New hotel construction is a lot. We can see along the beach, or the area nearby. Local store and food is less things to worry, its a lot and halal. Local say 100% Maldivian are muslim.
We take a walk for almost 2 hours hanging around before coming back to hotel to packing our bag and take a speedboat to our next destination, Hulhumale Ferry Terminal. Hotel help us to grab a taxi with fee 75 Rufiyaa with journey around 15 minutes. Unlucky its raining when we arrive at the terminal and we wait inside restaurant to grab some food and waiting our ferry and raining stop because the terminal is open and not covered. The weather is really unpredictable here. The ferry to Maafushi also have their own schedule. They are few speedboat operator to Maafushi Island.
Next…Maafushi Island stop.
