Guest House in Dhigurah, Maldives

White Sand Dhigurah, a guest house with luxury service in Maldives

A luxury resort service in a guest house! This is what I experienced while staying at WHITE SAND DHIGURAH GUEST HOUSE.

Before I start this post I just would like you to be aware that in Maldives they classify accommodations as Resorts and Guest Houses, they don’t name any accommodation as Hotel. So you can expect Guest Houses to deliver a very high level hotel service.

I stayed at White Sand Dhigurah for 2 nights and in this post I will let you know how was it and the main reason why I recommend you to stay there while visiting this beautiful island.

SERVICE

At the moment you arrive at the hotel you already start to experience of the great service, you get a welcome drink and a briefing of how the hotel and excursions work.

The briefing is very important as they give orientation about the local culture and how the guest house works.

In the blink of an eye the room was daily cleaned, I would have breakfast or something and soon my room looked like brand new.

Pick up and drop off services at Dhigurah’s Harbor are available.

 

ROOMS

White Sand Dhigurah has 4 room types.

I stayed at a Suit Room with Open Air Shower and Jacuzzi, and I would totally recommend it.

There were times I felt like staying in the room for the whole day as the bed was simply they best I had during my whole month in the Country.

Unfortunately, there is a construction going on right next to the guest house so the view is not great, at the moment (April/2018).

 

RESTAURANT

The Guest House has a rooftop restaurant which makes your dinner even nicer.

Breakfast is included and there is an egg station with a Chef that will cook an omelet the exact way you would like it.

A great menu is offered, one of my favorites was Sri Lankan Prawn Curry, this was USD12 and I am craving about getting one while writing about it haha.

DHIGURAH’S BEACH

Please bear in mind that as Maldives is a Muslim country we shall respect their culture and be fully dressed on the way to the beach even though it is close to the hotel.

Bikinis are allowed only in the Bikini Beach of any local island in Maldives.

 

ACTIVITIES

You won’t get bored! They have: Scuba diving, Snokeling, Whale Watching, Fishing, Sanbank Picnic, Water Sports.

 

THE MAIN REASON WHY I RECOMMEND WHITE SAND

The reason main reason why I recommend White Sand is because if wasn’t for them I would not experience snorkeling and scuba diving with whale sharks, which was the whole point for me going to that island.

I had 6 nights and 5 days in the island, at first I was dealing with other companies that were making their plans according to what the majority guests would like to do. I had no support to do what I went there for.

In my last 2 nights I stayed at White Sand, Reehan (the owner) noticed how frustrated I was and told me he would take me to see whale sharks on my last day.

He made such an effort to make my dream to come true that I am forever grateful for meeting him.
