Happy Life Maldives Lodge, K. Maafushi,
A holiday of sun, sand and sea on one of Maldives’ beautiful coral islands has long proved too expensive for many travelers.  But the good news is that those days are behind us and if you don't want to spend thousands of dollars for accommodation and if you are looking for something off the map and very rewarding, look no further than Happy Life Maldives Lodge on Dhiffushi Island. It is about 36km from the capital city Male' and Ibrahim Nasir International Airport which makes for a convenient commute with breathtaking ocean views.   The island is surrounded by the legendary clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and is filled with lush tropical vegetation with swaying palm trees giving you ample shade from the sun while you explore this gem of an island and meet its hospitable people.

This intimate lodge with four guest rooms was the first ever guesthouse on Dhiffushi Island and has much experience and quite a history of providing top-notch hospitality to their guests.  The friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and excellent cuisine with tastefully designed rooms with all the comforts such as air conditioning, Internet access and a balcony makes a stay here a very pleasant one. There’s also an awesome communal space where you can hang out or just kick back and listen to some music. This is also where Umar, the Happy Life Chef, showcases his Maldivian culinary talents.

Hassan, the owner, is a fine example of Maldivian hospitality and is always ready to give you an in-depth tour of the island which includes a chance to experience the food in the local grocery store and a sneak peak of the Boduberu group (Local drumming music) practice sessions to name a few essential spots around Dhiffushi

The Happy Life Maldives Lodge experience comes with a tranquil Maldivian village to explore. You can laze around on the beach, take a dip in the crystal clear waters, scuba dive and explore some of the incredible dive spots near the island and surf to your hearts content at some of the gorgeous unspoiled surf breaks nearby. Fishing expeditions, BBQs on the beach, exploring the nearby sandbanks and snorkeling are also highly recommended.  Also, a large shallow lagoon surrounds Dhiffushi Island making it an ideal spot for kiting and windsurfing. The best winds are from May to July.
This guesthouse triumphs in more ways than one by being able to give you excellent accommodations and the best of island life at a fraction of the cost of staying at a typical high-end resort hotel. The authenticity of the island experience, the heartwarming smiles of the people and the sheer value for money provided by the Happy Life Maldives Lodge makes for an unforgettable stay in one of the most beautiful islands in the Maldives.
