The best staff you could wish for
The first impression of the island can be a bit off putting, but fear not, it has a lot to offer!
You could not wish for a more authentic Maldivian experience or a more attentive, kind hearted staff. Rifath, Ripon and Nawaaz are what makes Koimala truly stand out and will do anything to make your trip comfortable, fun and unforgettable. Maamigili is a local island, where you can experience the true Maldivian culture, as tourism as the island itself are in development. This island is a great starting point for daily trips, which the staff of Koimala will be happy to help you with. They have a private boat and arrange any kind of trip you want - from Manta point visit about an hour away (we saw gorgeous 5 meter mantas and a whale shark), whale shark tours - the whale shark point which is considered the best place on Maldives to see a whale shark is right on the island reef, sand bank, trip to a nearby picnic island with the most incredible beach and a reef you can spend hours exploring... For those who want the pampering and comfort of a resort, Holiday Island resort is literally one minute away with a boat and Sun Island is 15 minutes away with a speedboat. Entry is free after 6 pm, but for Sun island, you still have to pay for transportation to get there. Daily pass to Holiday island is 25 dollars, but if you get a massage, you don’t need to pay the entry ;) All in all, Koimala is the perfect choice for the traveler who wants something more than a resort, a genuine connection with the culture and a budget friendly experience of the otherwise pretty expensive Maldives. Big thank you to Ripon, Nawaaz and Rifath for all the kindness and hospitality!

You feel like a resort guest service
Mosquitos sometimes up in the area of launch . The food when there are all the guests sometimes is not on time but like everywhere when the hotel is full.
The air conditioning in the room, the food is very good and the staff always wants to make you feel very comfortable and calm with everything. I have to say THANK YOU to: Ripath is the boss is very professional , helpful and very good human person . He helps me more than I expected and his helping hand here helps me a lot with any inconvenients that I had in my trip for changing my plans at the last. Ripon is very kind , useful in his hotel . Always trying to do everything quickly .He is very nice! . Nauas is very good guy . He knows perfectly how you feel good in all your plans making excursions as your needs.Everybody there are good.

It was a home away from home experience

Amazing place at great price better then the resorts!
I like every single bit of my stay. Everything was great. They planned our transfer to the Island from Male' airport via domestic flight free of any extra charges. The place amazing from the first looks. The place was clean even though it was close to the beach. The room was really great and clean for the price. The beach was just a few minutes away and we had cycles always available to go to the beach. Cycling on the island was an amazing experience. We spent our new years eve at the nearby resort thanks to them. All the excursions and island tours are really interesting and cheap as compared to the resorts. The food they cook is just too good. 5 stars to these guys and thanks for all the hospitality. There are many other things and I wish I could write more.

Great bicycle, nice beach, nice welcome note and koimala staff are nice
Maamigilli Is filled with lots of litter and rubbish all over the island. Little to offer in restaurants. Also in my booking states excursions included that would imply that they are free! As a tourist attraction a shark trapped in a sea gully is not for me.
Bicycle ,local beach hotel was ok

Best staff you can find!
The bed was a bit hard and they didn’t clean our room every day.
The staff was really friendly and kind, they help us for everything we need. The food was also good, and the room was very nice. There were a lot of different things to do, like excursion In the nearest island, fish feeding and snorkeling. The hotel is located in a local island with a lot of local people and not so many tourists and we enjoy that, but also if you prefer the resort life you can go to holiday island with 1 minute boat.

There is need replace broken furniture in the room.
Maamigili island is a good choice in the Maldives because it has its own airport and is relatively easy to get to (several flights per day from Male'). The island is a famous spot for whale shark diving, as well as for snorkeling with most beautiful fishes. I visited for two weeks and had an excellent time at the Koimala Inn. This hotel is comfortable, has large rooms and good infrastructure which works well (restaurant, electricity, air-conditioning, shower, etc.). And it offers an important extra: the hotel has its own small boat which is a crucial advantage when preparing for whale shark seeking trips. But most of all it's the excellent hospitality of Abdulla Nawaz and his team who made the stay really outstanding. They are totally dedicated, give great service and go out of their way to make things possible. And everything in a most friendly way. I sincerely thank them for an unforgettable vacation!

They offer great excursions like for example whale shark watching. Very friendly staff. You can enjoy a fresh coconut from the garden and a fantastic maldivian breakfast.👍

"Hospitality=the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers" Well, all the Koimala staff nailed it, you can easily see that what they do is because they truly believe in it and have passion for it. Are you looking for some fancy, luxurios but "cold" and expensive resort with tip-hunter staff ? Ok, skip the Koimala go somewhere else... but if you are looking for a cozy and clean place where to stay to enjoy the true Maldivian life with the possibility to do several activities (snorkeling with whaleshark, diving...) and with a truly caring staff, you found the right place! Thanks again to Nawaaz and Ripon for the amazing stay, hope to see you again!

A lot of bang for your buck.
Management of the facilities. A few bits not up to scratch in the WC.
Value for money? Absolutely. The staff was 10/10, they'd go the extra mile. A fella named Ripon showed us everything we needed and more. The locals are also welcoming.

Great way to experience local life in Maldives.
The pictures looked somewhat better than the real experience, but isn't it always like that? ;-) Unfortunately the beaches and the amount of trash on the island could use some update.
The Maldives accommodations style and mentality vary on a wide scale. You cannot compare this hotel on a local island with any of the 4-5 star resorts around. On the other hand if you want to see the real picture of the Maldives instead of being locked up in a sterile tourist kindergarten, you should definitely visit an island like Maamigili and a place like this ;-)

we were on our honeymoon and they made a few suprises for us. I want to thank personally Rifat an Nawas for their time and effort they put on our 5 day stay. You can't buy somethings, and one of them is a great team at an hotel that works for the best of you. Thank you Koimala.

it worth a one or two night stay, not longer than that.
the beach which was shown in the booking.com was far from hotel and it was a public beach, free wifi wasn't good as expected.
Staff were friendly, Dinner and breakfast was awesome, quality of food was amazing.

Just great !

This hotel is comfortable, has large rooms and good infrastructure which works well (restaurant, electricity, air-conditioning, shower, WLAN, etc.). It is a lovely inn at reasonable rates. And it offers an important extra: the hotel has its own small boat which is a crucial advantage when preparing for whale shark seeking trips.

I sincerely thank them for an unforgettable vacation and bringing me to the whale sharks !
