Best hotel on the island
Arguably the best hotel on this quaint little island community. Staff try very hard to make sure guests are comfortable and service levels are high. Location is the best and beach is so beautiful and secluded. Recommended to a budget traveler who wants to have family fun.

The best service in all of Dhiffushi
We had such a great stay in Dhiffushi. We wanted to experience local island life without the typical resort setting, and this place went above and beyond. The front desk staff was so pleasant and helpful. Jahid, always had a smile on his face and went out of his way to answer questions or accompany us if needes. The restaurant staff was always polite. Sai Babu, prepared the most beautiful outdoor beach dinner for us. It was so breathtaking. The beach is a stroll away. It was beautiful, clean, and had a Dhiffushi water sports counter available. Movich, the guy who heads this business, helped arrange a wonderful sand bank excursion with umbrellas, beach chairs, and a delicious lunch. Luckily we had the sand bank all to ourselves. It was so pristine and beautiful! Do all your activities on Dhiffushi! The other resorts are very overpriced! There are a few souvenirs shops and again, it's better to buy here. We did fishing here too and caught plenty of white and red snapper. The restaurant will cook your catch for a nominal fee. If you're looking to relax by the beach, are not expecting a resort style food spread, but generally good food, and want to fish, see dolphins, jet ski, hire a photographer (for a pvt photo shoot), visit a sandbank, experience true island life, then Dhiffushi is perfect! There is lots of construction on the island, and unfortunately areas around the island can be a bit dirty w debris, but at Rashu Hiyaa itself, it was great! Thank you!

Highly recommended
It was a 4D3N stay. The room was very clean and in a good condition. We stayed in a superior double room and it is huge. The toilet comes with a jacuzzi. I feel it would be better if it has a roof covering the jacuzzi because when it rains, we couldn't enjoy the jacuzzi. There were a variety of foods at their in-house restaurant but breakfast menu can be improved. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Overall, me & husband had a wonderful stay at Rashu Hiyaa. Highly recommended.

A nice little Gem
Although the island is very small (just one km in length and 200 m large) it is quite charming and a good choice if you want to have a quiet holiday. The mosque is not close, so you can sleep through the night. Dhiffushi used to be - and still is - a fishing island, but besides the 5 or so hotels present, there are about another 10 to be built. Our advice would be to go there before that happens. With 15 hotels, the beaches may get a little crowded, especially during peak season. You can get to the island by local ferry from Male for 1.5 USD one way (3.25 hrs), so no need to fork out 300 $ for the speed boat.(40 min). The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful and made our stay even more memorable. You can snorkel from the beach to two concrete blocks and the amount of underwater fauna is amazing: trigger fish, angel fish, butterfly fish, surgeon fish, parrot fish, porcupine fish, unicorn fish, lion fish, trumpet fish, mooray eel, grouper, snapper, ray, sea urchin,clams, crown of thorns starfish, etc... I even managed to see a white sea snake.

This place is a gem! The staff are really helpful and friendly. Rooms are large and really clean. The property is located a few steps away from the bikini beach. The excursions provide good value for money, are well organised and can be undertaken at your own convenience. The Manager runs this place superbly. Will definitely be back.

Nice Hotel
Really worth the money. They give free pick up and drop which is soothing after a 3 hrs ferry. This is the best property on Diffushi Island. Rates are worth it. Morning breakfast is stumptous and has menu for vegetarians as well. Their charges for activities and water sports are also reasonable. I would recommend this hotel for anybody who can't afford a resort. I don't expect anything more from hotel.
