I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in January 2017 with my wife and 2 year old daughter. We had a lovely stay and can't thank the staff enough for making our stay. The hotel is set on the beach and all of the rooms have a sea view. The hotel is beautifully presented on the beach. Lots of...

We visited in November 2016 for six nights. We were travelling with another couple so we got adjoining rooms on the ground level near the pool. Our room was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed. The room was cleaned thoroughly everyday. Bathroom design is where unique comes in, it's huge. Nice long vanity with double sinks, toilet in a...

Access to the Pool and the beach is very easy from any room. Found it very safe to walk around the hotel, specially for Children. A special thank you to Mr. Ashok Kumar for accommodating our request to open the Nigh Club on a Sunday night. He made a special trip to although he had signed off for the day

Great welcome with local traditional touch. We stayed in one of the deluxe room facing the beach with a private pool. Amazing view from the room. It's very relaxing to sit on the beach chairs with oil lamps lit along the beach at night time. Food and customer service are little disappointing. Prior to our stay we contacted customer service...

Rooms are spacious, big & with modern bath ware. Plumbing working perfect. Breakfast & Lunch was decently OK. Dinner was nasty. They said it’s a BBQ but no choice of seafood/meat. We went to the buffet at about 8.30pm & most of the food was almost over & they never refilled. The “Maalu Maalu Resort & Spa” charm is not...

When I was going there based on hotel reviews, i had very high expectations. To be frank enough it was not good as I thought. Food was OK and staff was friendly enough. Compare to other luxury hotels in there area, Maalu Maalu has lost it spot.. I dont see any good reason to spend too much for this hotel.

First the good things. This is a first class hotel bang on a great beach and to add to this we somehow got an upgrade to what is best described as a suite and this had a plunge pool shared with three other rooms. There's a great pool and safe bathing in the sea should you prefer. About 400m down...
