It's difficult to explain in few words the happiness I have when I remember my stay in Kaani. First things first: This is not a Resort! This is a much cheaper hotel, in a local island (inhabited by locals), so, if you book this expecting an island for a solo hotel, you've got the wrong address. Take that idea out of your head, so that you don't come here afterwards complaining! This hotel provides you with a spectacular infinite pool, which in a non windy day will make you wish to never leave it. On a windy day, good luck up there. Both beaches in front of the hotel are bikini beaches, which is not what you'll find on the rest of the island. Pay attention to that. Maldives is a Muslim country, so don't expect to act like you're not there. You have to respect in order to get respected. I assume during summer hotel activities are in a bigger number, but on November it was not like that. I don't complain about it. That's precisely what I wanted. So, you're warned about it also. Food is good, mainly Indian style. To be honest I liked it a lot. It's not the "original" one, but was very good indeed. Next lines will be about what makes the difference. You can have the most desired amenities you can imagine, but if you don't meet special people than it's just a place where you spent a good time. This is the biggest thumbs up I can give! People, Staff! The hotel staff is very polite, and always helpful. They will always try to attend your requests, so in case you have some need, go to the reception. They have their own sea activities established in a business belonging to the group Kaani, and their prices are very, but very good, when compared to the prices a Resort will charge you, We've made 2 trips with them, and we couldn´t be more fulfilled. The first one the guide was Markus! A very professional person. Always wiling to explain something to us, and always making sure everyone is enjoying the activities. One of the persons from our group felt a very bad seasick, and Markus always tried to make her feel the most comfortable as possible, and never leaving the option of getting her to the hospital very fast if things didn't go the good way. Fortunately it wasn't necessary. Second trip was lead by Shaad... And what a guy! Always in control! He drove the drone, he made snorkel and took underwater pictures, he piloted the speedboat... Don't worry if you go with Shaad. He will make everything work just perfect. We had a split-stay in Maldives, which means a PCR must be done, and a split-stay form must be fulfilled by the origin hotel. Hotel "Boss" - "Michael Jackson" (WHAT A SPECIAL PERSON ! ) left us completely at ease with this. Upon our arrival he told us everything we needed to know, and ended saying "you are here to enjoy, so enjoy and leave all that to us". On the day before our departure he took us to the health-center in Maafushi in order to do the PCR, and on that same night we had the results in the Maldives Covid platform, so as the entire process of the split-stay, which we only had to go to the heath-center again so that they could take our temperature and pay the 200 Maldivian Rupees for each. Each PCR was 50 USD, even less of what I paid in Portugal. I know Kaani will open a new hotel in another local island, which is expected to be called "Kaani Jungle". Guys at Kaani, I'll be more than happy to go to the grand opening, and return to Maldives. Feel free to invite me, because I know it will be an enormous success. Thank you all, and specially a big thanks to Michael Jackson.

I don’t have enough words to thanks the amazing experience I had during our stay at Kaani Palm Beach Hotel! We stayed 8 days and we felt like it was not enough, so we are definitely planning on coming back next year! The staff welcomed us warmly since the very first day, especially Sakthi, kudos to his amazing funny and positive attitude! Rooms were always super clean with daily cleaning service, big infinite pool (probably the biggest one in Maafushi island). They also have spa service, my cousin and I took full body massage sessions and we just wanted more! 😂 The staff from the canteen were amazing too! With always a smile on their face and happy to help us for any query. You had many food choices, including continental and oriental breakfast/dinner. Last but not least, I want to give a special mention to Mohamed Rasheed and his buddy Mark Mohamed for the amazing and unforgettable trips! They took us to many different trips and we were able to do snorkelling with turtles, sharks, manta rays etc… and one of the most unforgettable, whale sharks! You have to be super lucky to be able to see them, and be that close to them, and guess what? Mohamed and Mark made it happen! ☺️ Photos and videos are also included in all the trips, they are somehow a way to keep the amazing moments recorded and to let customers to really enjoy and take the experience with them (no extra money needed for it). And the most important thing here to mention: THEY NEVER CANCEL A TRIP! Anyways, don’t have enough words to say thank you! Hope to see you soon 😁

Kaani Palm Beach is the best hotel in Maafushi, with the best location, clean rooms, nice staff and an infinity pool with incredible views. The hotel also organize different trips and all the trips that we did in Maafushi it was with them. Thanks to them we have had unforgettable experiences such as seeing different types of corals, swimming with sharks, stingrays, turtles, the whale shark, and others. During these trips we met Mohamed Rasheed, Mark Mohamed and Sakthi, they are excellent staff! 10/10! They have taken care of us and have treated us very well during our trips, from there we have become a very good friends, we will come back just for visit them. Also at the end of each trip they sent us all of photos and videos, thanks to them we have been able to enjoy more the moment and not have to be worried about that. For sure, we will come back to Kaani Palm Beach hotel!

I spent about 7 days at the Kaani Palm Beach in Nov. 2021. Everything from the check-in process to the PCR testing process was smooth. They took care of scheduling everything and I was given the time to enjoy my vacation. I met the most wonderful people there and the staff was always attentive to our needs. Shawal (Mr. Happy) from Bangladesh was always very pleasant and made sure to always check in to make sure our time there was well spent. Indah from Bali was also very sweet and elevated our experience at the Kaani Palm Beach. There were countless other wonderful folks (Dodik, Shakti, Kasun, Mr. Mark) who warmly welcomed us and made this trip one to remember. I will surely be going back and recommending this hotel to others.
