1 day (no overnight stay) at airport - affordable place?

After our diving trip in the Southern part of the Maldives in January 2016 we have one day to spend near Male airport (from 9 AM to 10 PM). Does anyone know an affordable option for a place to stay or something we could do around the airport? We saw the Hulhule airport hotel offers day packages, but they are ridiculously expensive.

Would it be possible to go to the beach somewhere near the airport?

Thanks in advance! All suggestions will be highly appreciated!

Have a look at sites such as Agoda or booking.com. There a guest houses on Hulhumale, nice beaches but not western swimwear. Bus transfer to the airport.

You can get a day use ticket at the airport hotel, it was about $30 each the last time we did but it was a few years ago. They will store your luggage, and you get full use of the facilities but no room.

We received the price list for using the day facilities of the Hulhule airport hotel and it became much more expensive. Using the facilities and a dinner is 95 USD each. That does not include a room (which we don't need anyway, but we think this is ridiculuously expensive).

Any suggestions for guest houses? We don't need a lot of luxury and we are ok with not running around in our Western swim wear:-) We basically just need a place to relax were we can get a decent lunch and dinner as well.
